Wine Glass + Yoga Pants

Girl, it’s too late for coffee, so we’re switching it up and doing Wine Glass (instead of Coffee Chats) + Yoga Pants. Yoga pants are for all times.

Pour yourself a glass and let’s chat!

Monday was back to reality. Back to my 9-5, routines, and the grind. To be honest, I was alright with going back to work, I crave routine, so as wonderful as three weeks off was, I needed some structure. This is one of my first times going back to work in the new year where I didn’t bring a new planner and notebook with me. I am committed to seeing my customized Plum Paper planner through an entire year, and by using it more often I am consistently falling in love with having it by my side.

Before Christmas Justin and I went to the eye doctor to get our peepers checked. Nothing like using your FSA dollars at the last minute. Instead of getting glasses at my appointment, I shopped online with Zenni. My honest review is: while I love the cheaper price tag, I am far too picky to be purchasing glasses online. I’m getting used to my new glasses, but I would not have picked them out had I tried them on first. My new PRESCRIPTION aviator sunglasses? Those are the bomb.

We are slowly taking on some small projects around the her to make this house our home. Little things like adding a calendar to the kitchen, taking down some valances, and replacing curtains have really helped us feel comfortable as we transition the house to being ours. Stay tuned as I attempt to sew curtain panels together this weekend!

My dear friend gave me, what we lovingly refer to as, “hippie shit” for my birthday this week. She ordered me a gorgeous rose quartz crystal and a hand carved palo santo necklace. The crystal is pure magic, I keep finding little sparkles in it! Here’s my Instagram post about this thoughtful gift.

I have a severe hatred of glitter. Apparently, I’m not the only one. My friends at the Brain Candy Podcast discussed Glitter on their show (episode 286) this week too! Glitter is a thing, people!

All in all, it’s been a decent week, even after not setting an alarm for three weeks!

Happy Friday, friends!

Enjoy your weekend!

Coffee Chats + Yoga Pants

Fridays are my favorite.

In that spirit, today I’ll be writing about all of things that I would tell you if we were hanging out, in our comfiest yoga pants, chatting about our week. Grab a warm cup of coffee and let’s chat!

Speaking of coffee. I have been obsessed with holiday coffee lately. I’m not sure what it is, because in reality, they’re not THAT different than any other coffee that I drink everyday. My favorites are Trader Joe’s Wintery Blend + Starbucks Holiday Blend.

This was the first year that I sent out Christmas cards. It seems like a dying art, but I am hoping to be more present in celebration in the coming year. One of the things I realized as I was putting together the cards was that I have NO ONES address, while I’m grateful for whitepages.com, it was incredibly tedious to look up everyone. My 2019 goal to purchase and complete an address book and birthday list was born out of this frustration. I ended up purchasing the Rifle Paper Co. Raven Address book. It’s on the pricier side, but I loved the design and it had exactly what I wanted. It now sits in my desk organizer and is also a place to keep my stamps!

I completed quite a few things on my Christmas Break Bucket List this week! I was able to wrap all of my presents, had a dinner and hot tub night with my mom and sister, I made greens for the first time, went to the eye doctor, and took Winnie to the vet. It was a productive week, for sure!

Speaking of making greens. Here’s my Instagram post where I shared my amazeballs dinner of Chicken Thighs and Bacon Greens. YUMMMM!

I’ve been missing my yoga practice lately, and while I’m waiting to purchase my membership to my favorite studio, I want to make a space at home that has the appropriate energy to use for yoga and maybe some meditation. I’m thinking part of my office will be transformed over break!

Justin and I have been on a Christmas movie watching binge lately. We’ve watched: Home Alone + Home Alone 2, Christmas Chronicles, The Santa Clause + The Santa Clause 2 (we’ve watched both of these TWICE), The Polar Express, and most of Christmas Vacation.

Thanks for hanging with me! Happy Friday!
