Weekly Wonder - July 16
This past week was magical in many respects. I always feel like the highest highs are accompanied by the lowest lows and that was this past week but that's all part of the magic. As stressful as they are, the lows make the highs even more special.
- First, it was Jonas' second birthday! My entire week was consumed with planning and errands for his birthday party and it turned our so well. He's the sweetest boy and I freaking love him. I'll have a post up with party details soon. We also got to hang out with Jonas at his school to celebrate his birthday with his classmates. We brought all of his classmates fruit popsicles and sang happy birthday with his class. It was so sweet and the look on his face when he realized we were all singing to him was priceless. Check out what I posted on his actual birthday if you want to see how much he's grown over the past 2 years...it's so crazy!
- We're in the process of selling our house and already have a contract on a new home that I LOVE. We hit some bumps in the road over the weekend (same day as Jonas' birthday which was a huge bummer) that could have caused everything to fall apart and put us back at square one. Thankfully, everything worked our and we are on track again, but gosh. Why is real estate so stressful? It's emotion ridden because there's so much money involved. I will be very thankful when this whole process is over and I can feel at home again.
- Nisolo invited us to preview their sample sale on Friday night and we picked up some gorgeous shoes for amazing prices. We love the team over at Nisolo and what they stand for. Their sample sale was so fun because it was tons of people we know and felt like a little party. Jonas even joined us and had a blast because he made a new best friend with another little boy that was there. Their bromance is the cutest thing I've ever seen.
- We went on a double date with our sweet couple friends the Knowles. We checked out the new Restoration Hardware in Green Hills. It's a gorgeous 4 story building complete with a bar and cafe. We grabbed drinks and browsed the beautiful space low-key dreaming about what our future homes would look like. Then we grabbed pizza at Emmy Squared which was so delicious and felt like I had been transported to New York. Finally, we attempted to grab a nightcap at the Thompson Hotel rooftop bar, LA Jackson but quickly decided that was a bad idea and left. I hadn't been to LA Jackson in a while and was surprised it had turned into a super loud, crowded night club type vibe instead of the elegant space it used to be. I was disappointed for sure because I'm that's definitely not my scene anymore. Raise your hand if you're old like me! Haha.
- I've been needing to stop by Poppy & Monroe for a while because I was out of pretty much all of my skincare products. So, I stopped by and spent way too much money on products. I always seem to run out of everything at the same time. The last time I got a facial there, they wrote me a skin care regimen and recommended products and it's been doing wonders for my skin which had been previously dry, tight, and red. I picked up Marie Veronique Balancing HypoTonic, Rejuvenating Night Oil, Pure E.O. Free Oil Cleanser, and an Au Naturale Matte Lip Stain in On Pointe (it's so pretty). I love how personalized their care is. Every time I visit, someone helps me figure out exactly what I need and I don't have to worry at all about the quality or toxicity of the products. Everything they carry is clean and natural which is increasingly more important to me as I age and as I try to be as non-toxic around Jonas (my son) as humanly possible.
