Weekend + Links

Today is such a fun Friday since it’s also my birthday! This weekend I’m celebrating the last year in my twenties and the sweetest little baby turning 3 weeks old. This was our last week having Brian at home for paternity leave (beyond thankful his job offers that) and it’s safe to say things will likely be a little crazy next week as Olivia and I navigate a work week without his help and settling into our new ‘normal’. Tonight we’re keeping it low-key and ordering takeout from one of my favorite Atlanta spots, having a well-deserved glass of wine and sweet treat and if we’re lucky, a baby that gives us 3 hours stretches of sleep. Oh how things have changed…. and yet I love it all the same.

favorite links:
+ the healthiest foods at Trader Joe’s (we always have the ‘gone bananas’ in our freezer)
+ Taylor’s makeup always looks flawless and I loved her breakdown of all of her must-have’s
+ recipe on deck: california chopped kale salad
+ life lessons from Sex & the City. — one of my all time favorite shows

sales & deals:
+ 15% off at Madewell? Eyeing this pretty blouse, this stripe top and this bow-back tank
+ finally, a short sleeve, long cardigan!
+ pair this adorable dress with sandals now and booties comes fall
+ the best, basic tee was finally re-stocked
+ love the sleeves on this pretty sweater
+ major romper love for this black option
