Happy happy Friday. This week has been so busy and so long. There are so many things I have wanted to do but didn’t have time. I simultaneously want to do everything this weekend and just relax and not do anything at the same time because I’m exhausted. Sometimes I can’t relax until I have been productive, so the dilemma continues. I hope you can relax or be productive – whichever you desire! Or better yet (for me) both!
Until then, let’s soak up some great link love from the week.
This guest room reveal is amazing. It makes me want to add paneling and paint every room.
People have been talking about it for weeks now, but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opened to the public today! There are some great sweaters, jeans, boots, and home decor. I grabbed these boots online and am am excited to see if they work! I love these boots too!
We have done a lot of weekend road trips this summer for weddings and family events and aren’t done yet! Despite having a lot to catch up on when we get home, experiencing new places on our road trips and seeing other people’s vacation photos makes me want to go somewhere new every weekend. I love this guide to a road trip in each state.
Speaking of going somewhere new, this is a great post about why we should try new things right where we are.
You know those epic cheeseboards that you envy all over Instagram? You can make that just from a Trader Joe’s haul, and this post will tell you how. Trader Joe’s is one of my favorite places to get cheese. They have a good selection and great prices, compared to some other stores. And their snack and dried fruit selection can’t be beat, which, after the cheese, is really key for a good cheeseboard. Now I want to make a cheeseboard for dinner.
We prepped all of the ingredients for lunches and dinners this week. Substitute zucchini for carrots and this is how I felt, including the part about the beets. It took at least an hour and a half, and was worth it the rest of the week, but I won’t lie and say I didn’t want to just do something totally different than what we prepped on Thursday night. We did what was planned because we had worked so hard to prep it. On another note, did you know that those beets you chopped that dyed your hands pink for a whole day don’t release any juice after you store them in a tupperware in the fridge? That was news to me. I may stick to the cheese board next time.
Happy weekending, friends! I hope it’s a lovely one!
