what is everyone up to this weekend? we’re all still recovering from a nasty bout of spring cold/flu (which, for me, also included a raging case of pink eye…pink eye!!!!) ugh. suffice to say, we’ve been home-bound for the past few days. on a happy note, ben is finally done with two back-to-back away rotations that have lasted for what seems like for-ev-er! woo hoo! we’re psyched to finally have him back home and are looking forward to a few well-deserved family adventures in and around our neighborhood next week!

until then, here are a few fun finds to kick off your friday…

have a feeling i’ll be wearing this a lot over the next few months! so light and comfy!

zara has the sweetest mini collection!

tiny hamsters eating tiny burritos. need i say more?

happy weekend to all the fabulous fathers out there (especially mine-he’s the best!!) we’ll be celebrating this sunday with a family brunch at our place including this insane kitchen gadget/father’s day gift (shhh!) and lots of these!

in honor of my darling B, and all the classic, dapper dads out there, this friday’s cocktail stars…bourbon!

check out this delicious recipe from the dusty baker.



have a handsome, happy, crazy delicious weekend!


happy friday!

i’m kicking off the pretty in palm springs friday cocktail series with the most delicious (and simple) margarita! truth be told, i have never been a lover of tequila (gasp), but this combo of fresh lime and smokey agave completely changed my perspective. i love the tart bite of lime in this drink, but if you like a slightly sweeter libation, i suggest adding a few drops of agave syrup. tart, refreshing and strong-a perfect start to your weekend!

we’ll be sipping on these and toasting to homeownership with friends on sunday. hope you all get a chance to enjoy a few poolside this weekend!

1 shot tequila (I prefer a smokier variety like casa noble special reserve )
.5 shot of Cointreau
juice of one lime

rocks, drink, repeat.
