Nesting

Nesting on this heatwave of a weekend in May.

Oh it has been a hot minute since I did one of these hasn’t it? We’ve been busy with the kid’s sports, yard work, and other have to’s.

1.) And if I’m being honest, I’ve been so wrapped up in the Johnny Depp trial that it has been consuming me. Who else has gone down that rabbit hole?

The other thing I’ve been watching when it’s not the J.D. trial is “The Staircase” on HBO. It’s based on the true crime and you can watch the documentary on Netflix as well. (If you’re a true crime junkie like me, click here to see some of my favorite True Crime docs).

2.) I’m finally getting my garden planted this weekend. Better late than never 🙂

We have to transplant our peonies so if anyone has any tips send them my way.

3.) I have been obsessed with this coffee concoction lately. It was inspired by the new chocolate cold foam cold brew at Starbucks but I like my version better. Click here to see how to make it!

4.) Did you guys see the dress that I recently got from Amazon? I call it my “art teacher chic” look. It’s so comfortable, is loose fitting and has pockets! I’m all about the comfort and coastal grandmother style this summer!

5.) Yesterday on the blog, I shared this week’s Friday Favorites. Click here to see them all!

6.) And introducing Happy Hour Fridays! Come on over to Instagram every Friday evening for Happy Hour to check out the week’s cocktail and come celebrate your week’s wins or just vent. (If you’re not following me on Instagram, click here!) This week’s cocktail was Lilac lemonade with prosecco. Click here for my lilac lemonade recipe and add some prosecco!

And now time to share some of my favorite things I found this week on the interweb.

I’m obsessed with this adorable DIY denim and lace flag from Cindy at DIY Beautify.

This idea from my friend Addy from Two Little Taylors is the sweetest for your kids for the end of the school year. I literally had tears in my eyes.

Or this one from Dana at House of Goldies.

How delish do these lemon blondies look from Rachelle at My Hubbard Home? Need to make these stat.

Hope your weekend is beautiful and you stay cool!

Coastal Grandmother Style

Coastal Grandmother style

Coastal Grandmother Style is the new trend for this summer and I am here for it. Think Diane Keaton on “Something’s Gotta Give” or Meryl Streep in “It’s Complicated”- breezy whites and linens, perusing the farmer’s market then coming home and cooking dinner with your local produce in your open kitchen while enjoying a glass of wine.

I have been in love with the Coastal Grandmother aesthetic since I was little and saw Father of the Bride.  I dreamt of living in that house and having a kitchen with my pots and pans hanging from the kitchen ceiling. Which is why whenever I’m cooking I listen to Nancy Meyers Kitchen on spotify.

Coastal grandmother is a feeling of carefree relaxation and being effortlessly put together. It’s being the ultimate hostess, having a bowl of lemons on your kitchen counter, making a delicious meal and having vases of fresh hydrangeas from your garden.
