Life Lately

Hey friends! It's only been 30 days since my last post, but who is counting?! We have been busy busy and been doing SO much fun stuff. I end up posting to my Insta story and not saving any pictures, which is a major fail on my part.

Every weekend we have had plans. I'm definitely in need of a relaxing weekend soon! 

We spent the first nice weather weekend at the Tiki Bar where my MIL keeps her boat. Drinks and a gorgeous sunset were the highlights of that evening!

We've watched a couple movies on Sunday evenings with popcorn + candy (duh). We've seen Deepwater Horizon, Hacksaw Ridge, and The Butler. We haven't finished The Butler, but I read the entire Wikipedia which the story was based off of and it's so good.

Can you tell I love movies based on true stories?! Both Deepwater Horizon and Hacksaw Ridge did not disappoint! I definitely recommend watching them!

A couple of weekends back Justin asked that we spend quality time together on Saturday instead of time on chores and errands. We got breakfast together at one of our favorite spots and went shopping for fun stuff the rest of the afternoon.

I've been treating myself to flowers every two weeks and let me just say, it's the best $6 I spend every time. Coming home to fresh blooms on my kitchen table is just the best.

Saturday night we got fancy at went to Justin's annual work event at the new Sagamore Pendy Hotel. We were the first event to be held there and it was gorgeous! There was plenty of drinks and some table games..I ended up playing about two hours of blackjack with monopoly money for raffle tickets. 

The highlight of these past few weeks though was booking our trip to California. We will be crossing off some bucket list items on the trip and I have a countdown going until we leave! Our itinerary includes going to Pebble Beach, a night in San Fran, and three days in Napa. 

We have never planned a vacation to somewhere we have already been, and doing so is even more exciting. We know what to expect, where we want to revisit, and places we didn't get to go last time that are now priorities. 

Happy Friday Jr. friends. Feels good to pop back into the little space.

March Goals

So happy to see Spring coming our way. A new season is like a new beginning in my book and the warm weather always helps!

February was a really good month. The car show was a great time and Justin narrowed down his list to two cars. We got our carport cleaned up and enjoyed our Valentine's Day together and most of all, I stressed less.

I could still work on stressing less, and I am going to make it a goal for this month as well, but what a life changer! Justin's work has slowed down and that means more time on the weekends to do fun things :)

March Goals:
  • Stress Less - It's a constant work in progress but not letting the little things in life get to me has been a breath of fresh air. I was at Panera a couple weeks back and they ran out of broccoli cheddar soup (I hadn't ordered it) and were apologizing to all the people that had already ordered it and were waiting. One woman turned irate and started yelling. Over soup. Not going to let myself ever be that person!
  • Spring Clean - Justin has a ton of clothes that he doesn't wear anymore and needs to go through. I have the "one year rule" aka if I haven't worn it in a year, it gets donated. So I need to go through some things!
  • Make a List of Clothes We Need - We really don't buy clothes very often. It's just not that big of a priority, but we have both reached the point that we legitimately need things. Work pants, sports bras, pajamas, etc.
  • Find a Dress for the Gala - Every year Justin's work hosts a gala at the end of busy season for everyone to unwind. I am going to try Rent the Runway this time. Hoping it works out!
  • Figure Out Travel Plans - California is at the top of our list and we are just trying to finalize the timeline and make a budget before booking everything. But if we are going to go, it needs to be booked asap. 

February Goals:
  • File Taxes
  • Stress Less
  • Go to the Baltimore Car Show
  • Finish Side Door Project 
  • Celebrate Our Dateversary/Valentine's Day
  • Bag Leaves in Carport 
Happy March everyone! Time. Is. Flying.
