A Weekending Good for the Soul

After all the beach and brunch fun the past several weeks, we had a quiet weekend. I had planned to go out and celebrate with bubbles after receiving really good news at work, but was craving quiet time with my little fam after a sudden loss in the family last week. A day date on Friday, a quick Bar Method sweat session, movie night, and taking lil' miss to the splash pad was just what the doctor ordered.
If you're not blue in the face yet of being sick of all the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coverage, it's now officially open to everybody and there are plenty of fun items at amazing deals to be had. You can find my fav picks here including this basic tee for less than $12 which was perfect for weekend errands.

Basic Tee {Less than $12}Lace Bralette | Shorts {25% off} Sandals | Necklace


My fav moto leggings are still in stock for only $25 (plus sizes are also available), and I can't rave enough about both colors. I love how they can be dressed up or down and will carry you right through to the colder seasons.

Lots of fun on Friday, and I'm still forever thankful for my new-ish job. Besides all the other amazing perks, having unlimited PTO truly is priceless. Not counting my days is so free-ing, and it's good for our relationship to have time together just the two of us. We started the day with lunch at Vanbarry's where I had a sandwich with turkey, bacon, avocado, and cream cheese - YUM with a can of my favorite sparkling rosé (they also had multiple flavors of frosé that I'll be trying next time) before moving downtown to grab drinks on the lake and go for a nice walk.

  16. When I worked for Groupon I had unlimited PTO and it was the BEST. The only time it got hard was during the holiday season because almost everyone wanted to take the entire time off. Your little girl is the cutest and is your swimsuit from Target? If so I have the exact same one!! :-) Love those leggings I think that my sister has the green pair. So sorry for your sudden loss too friend. On a brighter note, I hope that you have a great day!!
