I enjoyed a lovely girls night with Shari on Friday. She came over and we talked for a good 5-6 hours. It was great catching up!
The rest of the weekend was devoted to The Everygirl. I spent most of Saturday laying out a feature and we spent Sunday working on another week of meals under $50 with Lara. Everything was delicious. And guess what? Lara's second food feature went up today! Three meals, 1 cocktail, and a dessert with one key ingredient. Blood oranges.
The weather in Chicago has been phenomenal. It will be in the 60s-70s all week. Last year it was in the 30s for a week in MAY so this feels like a miracle. I even sat on the balcony with the pup yesterday!
I am getting my hair straightened this week. I have curly/frizzy hair and it makes my life 1000x easier. I love not having to iron my hair 2x a day.
I am crazy about Jess LC's Flea collection. Each item is a limited run and they are made from a combination of new and vintage materials. If you want any of these pieces -- order now!
I am also crazy about little baby Harper. I haven't been back to CA since early December (she was born in Feb) and have no idea when/how I'll be able to go. I have photo shoots almost every weekend but need to meet this little peanut! Isn't she the cutest thing you've ever seen? She's wearing a little headband from Aunt Danielle in this photo.
Whole 30 is going well, but I was relying on fruit and nuts more than I should. Snacks have definitely been a challenge, but this feels like it's right for me. I am really bad about making meals and prefer to have a snack which is terrible! So -- this has forced me to look at what/how I eat. I highly recommend this to anyone who might be interested in giving it a try. As far as energy goes, I am very run down but this probably has something to do with working until midnight + my lack of sleep.
I am never on Facebook and don't check twitter as much as I used to. So fill me in. What's going on in your world? Have I missed anything big?
