Brain Dump Friday

So Many Thoughts….

This week has been a major catch up/prep week for me! We’re talking loads of laundry, work deadlines, e-mails, dinner parties, birthday celebrations, meetings, and house stuff. It has FLOWN by! Even though at times I’ve been super overwhelmed with ALL that needs to get accomplished this week I’ve felt mostly calm in the midst of the crazy.

Honestly I think it has been my commitment to taking at least 30 minutes a day to exercise. Call it the endorphins, but after a 3 mile run or a BBG sesh, I feel like I can do anything! When things get nutty, I tend to put working out on the back burner, but this week I put it on the front and it paid off big time. Also, I think my new apple watch Ryan gave me (here’s the band I wear) for my birthday has really put a little pep in my step – I love closing out those goal rings!!

Since clearly I’m all over the place, I thought I’d do my favorite type of post today, a brain dump….

My Most Worn Summer Shoes

I wear these slides practically every single day. They are the perfect color for my skin tone (aka not too tan!), comfortable, and just easy. I honestly can’t recommend them enough. 5/5 stars!!

My Go-To Running Shorts

Do you remember a few weeks ago when I told you about the Amazon running shorts that look like the Lululemon shorts, only for half the price? Yes, well I’m here to say, they are amazing!! I ordered another pair yesterday because I’m practically washing them every day because I love them so much.

The Documentary We Couldn’t Pause

Y’all we got sucked into the Jonas Brother’s DocumentaryChasing Happiness‘ this week and I’ve got to tell you, it’s worth a watch. I’m totally a fan and have been for years, but this gives you a whole new perspective on not only their relationship with each-other, but their journey. It really is so good! Next on my list is the Kanye interview… I haven’t watched it yet, but I’ve heard it’s riveting.

Anthropologie Sale is SO GOOD

I’ve been buying more and more of my clothes from Anthro lately. I just love their special pieces that are so thoughtfully curated. I keep finding things I love! Yesterday I popped in to see what was in their sale and saw that my favorite dress I brought with me to Nantucket was marked WAY down. It’s one of those dresses that makes you feel like you are in a Nora Ephron movie. Totally worth every single discounted penny.

Latest Purchase

Speaking of dresses… I ordered this one on Wednesday from the lates Gal Meets Glam launch and I can’t wait to wear it on our trip to Blue Ridge, GA for the 4th.  I’ve had my eye on it ever since I saw a sneak peek of it a few weeks ago and have been waiting for it to officially stock! Eeek!! It’s just so pretty!

Affordable Handbags

Last week I was introduced to the coolest new-to-me brand called Charles. And guys, I’m obsessed! So many good finds, but I can’t get over this bag! UGH. So cute!

Summer Recipe Obsession

We spent Tuesday night at our good friends Sarah and Stephen’s home for dinner and it was, as expected, such a fabulous night. We get together for dinner every few months but we always do it up big! We’re talking the good champagne, multiple courses, and great conversation till midnight on a school night! I always look forward to our dinners together! But on Tuesday Sarah outdid herself with the meal. We’re talking ceviche, whole roasted snapper, a mango tasting, and homemade watermelon granitas! Everything was beyond delicious, but I HAD to have that Watermelon Granita recipe… it was Summer in a cup!

40% off Sale!

Talbots has it’s 40% off sale going on right now and you know I love a good Talbots find! This dress and these shoes are calling my name!

… okay, I think that’s it for now!
Happy weekend, friends.

    Chasing Happiness is in all honesty one of the best docs I’ve seen. It makes their new album Happiness Begins sound COMPLETELY different after you watch it!! Hearing “Rollercoaster” makes me tear up now, haha! I’m going to their concert for my birthday in August and can’t wait!!
