A Sweet Weekend

Ryan had surgery on Friday to remove his chemo port from his chest, praise the Lord! This is a surgery we’ve been looking forward to since last July. I’ll write a full cancer update soon (catch up on the latest here), it feels like SO much has happened since our last update a few months ago… but isn’t that how any cancer journey goes? It’s truly a daily rollercoaster and we look forward to this season one day being securely in our rearview window. But in the mean time, wow, we are thankful. 

We spent Saturday recovering with movies and a marathon of Madam Secretary (I’m so addicted!). And on Sunday we loaded up the car and headed to our favorite place, Charleston. We are here for the better half of the week for work and of course to visit family. We love any chance we can get to sneak away to CHS!

5 Things I’m Loving 

Rose Gold Mules

My obsession with these rose gold mules is aggressive. I probably look at them at least once a day, and now the instagram ads are attacking me and whittling me down. One day soon they will catch me at a weak moment and they’ll be mine, but until then… AREN’T THEY GORGEOUS?!?!

____  is my Power Color

I talked about the yellow version of this shirt in last Thursday’s post, but I’m kind of now crushing on the pink one! They have lots of colors and it’s such a cute “running around town” tee!

Jennifer GaRner’s Instagram

Okay fine, I’ll admit it, I’m JG’s latest low-key stalker. I love her so much and look forward to her funny posts and videos every day. Her fake cooking shows are by far my favorite. I feel like we’d be best friends… 

Hey Jenn, call me!

Fancy gets Fancier

When Carly and I were on Nantucket in June we popped into the Goop store and it was, as expected, drool worthy!! But my favorite thing in the store was by far the painted Cartier watches

I think they are pretty and FUN! For a mere $3.7k, this one could be yours! ha!

This Will Be My Vibe

Okay J.Crew. This is it. This will be my Fall vibe. That’s all. Thank you and good night. 

P.S. There’s a similar skirt on Factory for less, but not in pink!

    So happy to hear that Ryan had his port removed! That’s just the best feeling. Ports can be so uncomfortable!

    So glad to hear that Ryan’s surgery went well! Isn’t J.G.’s Instagram the best?! She seems so down-to-earth. Hope you have a great week in CHS!

    Just sayin’,
