I took Carl back to Tennessee last weekend to spend a few months with his dad. I could not believe how beautiful Tennessee was! Leaves falling, a crisp breeze in the air, I thought to myself “oh THIS is what fall is!”
I’m not going to lie though, Carl wasn’t too excited to get on a plane again.
I celebrated my 30th birthday last Saturday! Holy moly, my twenties are gone! I celebrated with a fun birthday dinner with my girlfriends the week prior and on my actual birthday (Halloween) Q, Carl and I handed out candy to trick or treaters and had wine and pizza (my favorites and our annual tradition).
Headed to NY this weekend, Q is meeting me for what is going to be a super fun weekend with friends!
Hi friends! Another week has gone by and I finally had a minute to sit and write. This past weekend Q came in to visit me (and most importantly Carl) in LA. We had such a great time with friends and family. And Carl was so happy to be reunited with his dad!
On Monday, I flew to the beautiful NYC for work and that’s where I am now. I have a love/hate relationship with the city. I love the food and shopping, haaaate the traffic.
(Oh hi “very LA” travel outfit. J. Crew top and boyfriend jeans)
(I even brought my very white Birkenstocks with me)
(JS pumps all the time. My go-to NY shoe (when I’m not in my Birks of course). )
More to come later this week/weekend. Thanks for sticking with me during this crazy week!
Hi friends! This weekend I took a super quick trip to Hawaii to visit my grandma. Tough life, I know right? It was SO hot and humid and my mom and I sweated our way through the weekend. I loved being able to spend a few precious days with my family, heat and all.

Over the weekend, I found the most magnificent hydrangeas that I’ve ever seen at the local Whole Foods.
We also found a great local breakfast spot called The Nook. The chef mixes traditional Japanese with all American favorites (think pancakes with fresh mango and pineapple or Jidori chicken and waffles). So good.
I met the cutest 16 week old Frenchie named Biscuit. That one ear up, one ear down thing just kills me!
And of course, I did a little shopping with my aunt. I’m conflicted on this neon J. Crew blazer. Part of me loves it and part of my is scared of it (does that make sense?). I did grab the striped tee, which is super cozy and not too pricey.
And I really wanted this clutch, but held back in hopes it goes on sale at some point…
Back to the real world today Recipe coming on Wednesday!
Hi friends! Sorry for being MIA this past week. I flew home to Tennessee this week to spend time with the husband. I spent the past 5 days doing a lot of napping, cooking, and laundry! PS my Jessica Simpson luggage and white Birkenstocks are the best travel companions.
Speaking of Birkenstocks, have I turned into a total hippie? My new favorite outfit involves overalls and Birks… I’ve got to say it is just about the coziest outfit ever.
Look at that little lurker! Carl traveled with me to LA on my list visit and has been hanging out with his grandma and grandpa while I’ve been home. Since Q is so busy with work (lots of travel), we thought bringing Carl to stay with me for a while was a good idea. He is LOVING LA. On the other hand, his cousins aren’t loving having him…
Last weekend I went to an engagement party in Malibu for one of my closest girlfriends. It was a blast to be reunited with my girls again. I am loving getting to spend all this quality time with them while I am in LA. (Dress is J. Crew)
PS did you know Amazon actually has cute fashion things? Um yes. I got these fun jeweled sandals for $55. Love them.
