Ashley Brooke - v - Monday Morning Musings

Flowers & Coffee

We spent the weekend doing ALL. THE. THINGS. Everything from house work, to having friends over for dinner, to church, and a baby shower. It was a very full and wonderful weekend. And on Sunday night we rounded it out with a bottle of wine, homemade pizzas, and our latest Netfilx obsession, Madame Secretary. 

Even though I really REALLY didn’t want the weekend to end, I’m very excited about this week! Ryan’s birthday is on Wednesday (yay!!) plus I have a few fun work things happening this week that I’m really looking forward to! All in all, I’m ready for Monday!


5 Things I’m Loving 

The Prettiest Fall Top (under $40!)

How cute is this top from Old Navy?! I’m really into it and it comes in quite a few colors! It’s the perfect Fall transition piece!

Lululemon Leggings

I REALLY needed new work out clothes, but truthfully buying them kind of stresses me out. Too many options and everything costs $100 (even though it’s well worth it!), but on Friday I finally went. After trying on EVERYTHING (seriously) I landed on this pair and I couldn’t be any happier with them. I got them in two colors and will be definitely ordering more.

They’re buttery soft, sweat wicking, and cooling. And if you know the Lulu terms they’re the “baby” of the Align Leggings and the Fast and Free Leggings. Seriously magic and perfect for outdoor runs and my BBG HIIT workouts.

Thermal Carafe

Last week during our stay at 86 Cannon we fell in love with their Thermal Coffee Carafes. I know that sounds silly, but I kind of think they’re genius and make a huge difference. Once you brew your pot of coffee, simply pour it into a Carafe and it will keep your coffee piping hot for hours without giving it that “burnt” taste! We ordered one (tons more colors here!) and have been using it ever since we got home, you actually can taste the difference!

Polka Dot Perfection

I picked up this pretty little dress for my Charleston trip and I absolutely loved the way it fit (see a peek here). So simple, easy to wear, and extra flattering. The perfect end of Summer dress that can easily be transitioned into Fall with a denim jacket, or heck, even this blazer!

Doormat Obsessed

I don’t know what it is but I’ve been obsessed with doormats lately. I recently replaced our back porch doormat, but now I want to replace our front door mat. I found this one on Amazon and fell in love. Pretty, simple, and classic. And for $21 it feels like a steal!

    I’ve had my eye on that same Old Navy blouse – it’s so pretty, and I love the color as we head into fall! That doormat is a total Amazon steal … might have to snag it for myself. Happy Monday, and cheers to a fun week ahead!

    Just sayin’,
