Sunshine & Coffee

We took this weekend extra slow and it was lovely. After last week’s work load and five straight days of radiation for Ryan, we were exhausted and a little beat down, to be honest. So a long weekend of rest was just what the doctor ordered! 

Even though we spent much of the weekend recovering from radiation with homemade chicken noodle soup and Netflix, we did venture out to the Farmer’s Market on Saturday afternoon for a little sunshine and coffee. 

And, after much debate, we decided to bring Dolly with us for her first ever farmer’s market outing. Her 1st birthday is today, so we thought it would be a fun little way to celebrate her, and get some fresh air!

I was so nervous to take her out in a crowd for first time because how OBSESSED she is with people. She’s never met a person she hasn’t wanted to snuggle, jump, and lick from head to toe so I was worried she would attack perfect strangers with her “love” and cause a scene. But guys, she did so good!! Other than barking/growling at anyone on a skateboard, she was too overwhelmed with all of the people to be too out of control. We even bought her a “pup-sicle” at the popsicle stand and she was too distracted to eat it, which is EXTREMELY unlike her. I loved seeing her have that much fun and we will definitely be bringing her again!… and I think it’s safe to say she enjoyed her birthday weekend!

And without further ado…Here is today’s 5 Things I’m Loving.

The Perfect Shirt

Okay, I am obsessed with this Tuckernuck shirt. I wore it for the first time on Saturday and it is a DREAM. The color is perfection, it has stretch but holds it’s shape. Plus, I LOVE the extra buttons around the bust that keep it from gapping. I am serious guys, this may be my new favorite shirt. Totally worth the investment, plus, navy gingham is a neutral in my book. Oh, and for reference I’m wearing a size S, and it’s a perfect loose-ish fit!

*Also, Tuckernuck’s 20% off sale is still going strong! Check out this post for my top 8 faves!

Blush Tote Bag

I posted an instagram story over last Friday and got a zillion DMs about the tote bag I featured. And I’m here to tell you it’s Cuyana, and it’s the best. As you know I LOVE all of my Cuyana pieces, and this bag is the perfect gateway into the brand. I have this one in both blush and black and can’t even begin to tell you how much I love them!

Netflix’s 7 Days Out

Have you watched Netflix’s new docuseries, 7 Day’s Out?! Ryan and I binged and watched a handful of them the other night and we were riveted! It’s a series documenting the 7 days before some of the world’s largest events! I’d highly recommend episode 2 & 5. SO.GOOD.

Heart Pajamas

I’m all about a seasonal pajama investment, so naturally I’ve been scouring the internet for the perfect fun Valentine set that I can wear everyday, all day, in the month of February.  I think I just found the perfect pair! I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about Roller Rabbit’s pj sets and I found this pink heart set on Amazon Prime, so I ordered them… because yolo!

The Royal Runaway

First off, can I just say HOW excited I am about our book club? I’m thrilled y’all are as into it as I am! I can’t wait to get this book club party kicked off first of February! Eeek!

But in the meantime, I’m rushing to finish the books that are currently on my nightstand! I’m about a third of the way through The Royal Runaway and I’m loving it! Such a fun read. Also, you know I’m a sucker for anything royal, so this one was bound to get two thumbs up from me! 😉

    Happy Birthday to Dolly!! Our first pup has a birthday tomorrow, and it’s giving me all the feels. We were the same way about taking our pups out in public, and we took them to a local food truck park (on a weeknight ), and they also did well! It’s funny how nervous we get about our little furbabies, but I’m definitely protective of them! Glad you guys had fun and got to enjoy yourselves this weekend. Hoping and praying Ryan’s treatments go well!
