Happy Friday! Another week has come and gone. Here's what I'm up to right now...

Reading - I'm about to start I Regret Nothing by Jen Lancaster. I love her and I'm super excited to read this! 

Watching - Nick and I have been revisiting Sherlock on Netflix and I forgot how much I love it. 

Anticipating - My birthday is in less than a month and Nick and I each really want to get a new tattoo. I'm excited! 

Listening To - We're still spending a lot of time listening to our random Spotify playlists. Do you have any suggestions for new things to listen to?

Eating - Scarlett and I are going to restock our cake pop stash! We usually keep a few in the freezer as a quick treat and we haven't had any for super long. 

Working On - I really want to get this apartment cleaned up and better organized. I think it's the blue sky outside - it's giving me early spring cleaning fever. 

Wishing - The next few weekends are packed and I'm already wishing for a down day. Maybe I'll have to grab an afternoon one of these weekends and just declare it a "relaxing day" where we wear our PJs and do absolutely nothing and feel good about it. 

I hope your week has been amazing and that your weekend is even better. What are you up to?

scenes from a walk...


Scarlett and I went on a little after school walk the other day and we found a new to us park.  It was a little lake surrounded by a walking path. Scarlett rode her scooter and I walked and took way too many pictures and we had a blast. I think we need to make it a regular thing. They even have picnic tables so we can eat our lunch and a little dock that Scarlett likes to walk out to the edge of. 








































We might even go back today!

Happy Wednesday! Scarlett has been feeling super fancy this week...







My favorite has to be the party outfit she picked out for a shindig at our local Pump it Up - so festive!

Happy Friday! We made it through another week. There's a storm rolling in right now and Scarlett and I are hunkering down for a relaxing day listening to thunder. Here's what I'm up to...

Reading - I've only got a few pages of The Nightingale left to read before we have book club on Sunday. I've enjoyed it, but I think the next book I read needs to be a lot lighter. World War 2 is a pretty heavy subject. 

Watching - I'm making my way through The Vampire Diaries on Netflix right now and I'm dreading the end of the month when Doctor Who disappears from Netflix. February 1st is going to be a sad day around here. 

Anticipating - I'm spending tomorrow night with my best friends and we got a hotel room! We're getting an entire night to ourselves with no kids and no husbands! I seriously can't even remember the last time we've been able to spend real quality time together distraction free. It's going to be amazing! 

Listening To - Scarlett has discovered Babymetal and I think we're going to be hearing a lot of them around here for a while... 


Working On - I'm working on getting Scarlett's valentines done for her preschool. This is the first year she's been at school for Valentines Day so it's also the first time she's giving valentines to people other than just family members. We also still need to finish her thank you notes from her birthday last month - the holidays really derailed our time last month and we're way behind. 

I hope your week has been fantastic! What are you up to?

scarlett style!



Welcome to another edition of Scarlett Style! She's been her usual amazingly stylish self this past week. 






My absolute favorite outfit has to be her dress with my high school show choir sequin cuffs to accessorize. So cute!
