Five Joys

I think I can honestly say that this weekend was the best weekend I’ve had in awhile. It was almost too perfect. I tried to keep work to a minimal, and I got to enjoy simple things like mowing the grass (LOL). You’re probably thinking I’m crazy that I enjoy mowing the grass, but I do. I’m a midwest girl and I’m used to being outdoors. For the past few years I’ve been living in apartments and condos in the the middle of a city where I didn’t get much outdoors time on a day-to-day basis. Now that we’ve moved into a house I get to do the fun outdoors stuff again, like mowing the grass, picking weeds, and planting tomatoes. You know… getting my green thumb on. It’s like therapy I tell you!

Saturday night was awesome, because I had the opportunity to work with Nylon Magazine & Clinique and attend the Play with Pop event for SXSW. If you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram you got to see the behind the scenes excitement! It was so much fun that it did not feel like work at all. Plus, Dylan and I hadn’t been out on the town just us in a long time so we took full advantage of the opportunity. Babysitter (my sister), Uber, free cocktails, dancing, and plenty of late night junk food when we got home.

What did you do this weekend? What are five simple things that brought you joy over the past week?

    Love those birks and your Weekend T-shirt! And I’m pretty jealous it’s warm enough where you are to wear shorts to the park! Good for you! Hope your week is going as fab as your weekend!

    SXSW looked like so much fun! I love these adorable pics too – and I hate the yard work part of owning a home eek!
