Weekly Favorites


Happy Friday!

I don't know if it's been the weather this week, the launch of our 2019 planners or renovations but this week has been FULL and LONG.  I am so ready for the weekend!  

Before we head into all the weekend fun, I have a few favorites to share with you from this past week!

Exciting Announcements

I am so pumped that we have released the 2019 planners   I cannot believe it's already time to put these on sale (and that we're already working on drafts of next year's planners).  We teamed up with a local artist who hand painted two of our cover options this year and that partnership makes me even more excited!  If you are a planner lover, be sure to order one here!  They are coming in nice navy boxes this year which makes them a perfect gift item for Christmas! 

We have another HUGE secret that we'll be announcing on Monday and I cannot wait.  Something new is coming and I cannot wait to share it with you all and get your feedback! 

Home Progress

If you've been following along with our home renovation process, I have a small update!  Our dinign room is almost complete,  we have a few rooms left to paint and then we are taking a MUCH needed break.  Planner season is starting, holidays are coming and last year I spent most of the holiday season crying, shipping planners and being completely stressed out (thank you shipping delays and general life overwhelm). Jared and I had a long talk and decided as much as we want to get stuff done and our house how we want it, we want to savor the holiday season together and just settle into the changes we've made thus far.  

We are going to slowly work on decorating the areas we've worked on so far, make final decisions on the next phase of our renovation, save up some more (always a good idea) and restart in the spring!  We are starting from the front door and working back so first thing up to decorate is our closet to mudroom conversion.  I picked up these baskets last weekend which add the perfect touch!  Now we just need to add some hooks for coats/purses/bags and have our bench cushion made and it will be complete!  I can't wait to share the before and after!

 Books I'm Reading

Until our vacation last week, I had barely read anything this year and that's so sad. I LOVE to read but just struggle to make time.  I read 7 books on vacation and I'm trying to keep the ball rolling.  I have a handful of books I purchased at home that I need to get through and then I'm going to start going back to the public library.  I just read this favorite that so many of you recommended.  I heard mixed reviews and will share my thoughts on this one soon.  I am getting ready to read this book and this one!  I am going to really try to dig in and move through these books soon.  I can't wait to share my thoughts with you!  Have you read any of these? What did you think?

Kroger Click List

I am wayyyyy late to the party on this one but I finally gave Kroger Click List a try a few times over t the past few weeks!  Verdict: we loved it.  We are really trying to savor our weekends and slow down a little and this saves so much time & hassle!  If we just need a handful of things, I will still run in and just grab those but I am all about the Click List going forward for our big grocery store trips.  I would rather spend that time washing and cutting up all the fruit, prepping lunches, etc. than trying to find where they have reorganized everything in our local store or fight the crowd.  

Fall TV is back

Who else is excited that fall TV is back?!  We are excited for some old favorites to return and some new shows to check out!  I think the new one I am most excited to watch is Manifest!  It's not a show I would typically pick out but I found the trailer and story line so intriguing! We're going to give New Amsterdam a try too.  As far as old faves, I'm excited for all the Chicago shows and Blue Bloods.  We loved Lethal Weapon but aren't sure about the lead actor switch and I am so excited that Designated Survivor was picked up & saved by Netflix!   What are you watching this fall?  Any shows I should add to my to watch list?

Hope you all have the BEST weekend!  See you back here Monday!  Be sure to stay tuned into Instagram Monday for our exciting announcement :)


  1. I can't wait to hear about your secret announcement and I've really gotten into planners so I may need to get a new one LOL! xo, Biana-BlovedBoston

  2. We were super excited to hear about Designated Survivor, too! Especially because I just finally got on the Netflix train this week, haha. Good luck with your decor shopping - can't wait to see more picture. I absolutely LOVE that cabinetry and your plans for it!

  3. Can't wait to hear your announcement tomorrow! I'm glad you're putting things on hold to enjoy the holiday season. After last year, that sounds like an excellent plan. <3
