Weekend In Review

Hello! Happy Monday!

(if there is such a thing)

I had a wonderful weekend and I hope you all did too! My sister came to visit and as usual we had a blast! We tried out Zoe’s Kitchen (yum!), did some shopping, and got pedicures together.

When we started thinking about what to have for lunch on Saturday, my sister’s only request was that it be healthy. My husband suggested Zoe’s Kitchen and it was wonderful! They do healthy Mediterranean style food, only it’s fast! I think these locations are franchises and I’m so glad I tried it out! That’s one app I’ll be using often!

Pedicures--a necessity.

After a healthy dose of retail therapy, it was time to treat our feet! We emerged sandal-ready, even though it was about 30 degrees outside. Sunday warmed up significantly and we were able to enjoy our salads outside and fit in a walk around the neighborhood before she had to pack up her car and hit the road.

As always, I hated to see Sara leave. If only we had enjoyed each other’s company this much when we actually lived in the same house ! I guess a lot of siblings probably feel that way.

I’m going to let the fun times and new memories made carry me through this work week! Have a great week everyone!

Weekend Casual

Hello all! Welcome back!

I’ve been staying casual as much as possible lately! It’s much too hot for anything else.

I bought this T-shirt at J. Crew Factory a few weeks ago and I’ve been living in it. I actually sized up so it would be loose and comfy. I know I’m way behind, but I bought my first crossbody bag this past week and I love it! I’ve always been a structured satchel kind of woman but I wanted a hands-free option for running errands. I only wish I had jumped on the bandwagon earlier!

Have a great weekend y’all!

Weekend Casual

Happy Monday all!

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Mine was a busy one, with a commencement ceremony on Saturday (pics of what I wore coming later this week!), planting our garden, a Netflix mini marathon (Big Love) and of course all of the usual chores.

I love being comfy on the weekends! Below, my outfits from the past two days:

T-shirt, shorts, and wedge sandals, J. Crew Factory; Fedora, Target

Weekly Highlights

Happy Friday!

It’s hard to believe today is the last day of February. Time is flying! Hopefully it will start to feel like spring soon–today it’s a brisk 24 degrees.

I went home to Luray last weekend for a friend’s baby shower and it was the bright spot in my busy week. Normally my in-laws keep my dog Cole but they couldn’t this time so he got to go along!

It was a gorgeous weekend. This is the view behind one of my parents’ properties. Cole made himself at home, and was looking like a country dog by the end of the day!

My best friend Christy is expecting her first baby–she is the first in our group to venture into motherhood and we all got together to celebrate her! She had friends drive into Page County from all over the state to support her. It was wonderful to see everyone and to celebrate Baby Renken!

What was the highlight of your week?

Happy Memorial Day!

 Hello all! I’m back and blogging after a rough week with the computer….I’ve missed you all!

I hope everyone has had a great weekend and a Happy Memorial Day!

I spent my weekend in full relaxation mode–lounge pants, vegging out, watching movies, reading in the sunshine, and of course spending time with my family! I really needed a nice little vacation from work and stress.

I’m re-reading The Prince of Tides. Pat Conroy is my all-time favorite author. I read this book in college and decided that I’d go through it again this summer. Even though I know what happens, Pat Conroy just has that magical way with words that I cannot put down.

On to what you came here for–some outfits and shopping!

I was in Target to get a few essentials (read: Blue Moon and an orange!) and I saw some great stuff on sale!14305320_130104103000

I’m really excited about this tote bag! First of all, it’s navy and I love navy! It’s dressy enough to be a “work bag” but is still simple and casual for the weekend. Plus, it was only $20 in store! Here’s the link but unfortunately it’s still full price online.

I think this is my new favorite top. I love the print and the silky feel of it. It makes me feel like I’m actually on a tropical vacation somewhere. It was way too cold here to hit the beach, so this is as close as I could get!

Weekend Whereabouts + More

Hi y’all! Welcome back!

We had yet another rainy, dreary weekend in Williamsburg. Only this time, it was really humid!  Walking outside was like being wrapped in a wet wool blanket! Ugh! Memorial Day weekend promises to be nicer!

My husband and I spent the majority of our time with Cole. He is desperate to play outside, go for a ride, and just generally get back to his normal routine. But we have one more week of taking it easy before he can get his stitches out so our weekend consisted of lots of movies and Netflix! The one time I did venture out, I wore:

Shorts and rope necklace, Target; Top, Loft; Flip flops, Tory Burch.

My office has permitted denim to be worn the last two weeks! After a few days of wearing jeans I just felt sloppy, so enter my trusty jean jacket! It makes even the dressiest dress a little more relaxed and that way I can still be a team player without looking like a slob!
