Weekend Wrap Up 2.15

February 15, 2015

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

Oh man, guys, yesterday started off as a hot mess. Car issues, freezing temperatures, plans unraveling and general frustration, but by 5:30 p.m. the Red Head and I had a table at our favorite restaurant and two pizzas in front of us. Then, all was well in the world. Our Valentine’s evening was saved and made complete with three episodes of Walking Dead. I chalk that up as a win for us! Hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend as well and these links from around the web this week.

Retreat

February 13, 2015

ebb + flow :: retreat

Somehow the universe crammed about a months’ worth of stress, work and shenanigans into the last seven days. Pretty impressive, universe. So, to say I’m happy that it’s Friday would be an understatement of epic proportions. I’m hoping for a quiet few days ahead with my little family but the rattling noise under the hood of my car may have other plans… Wish me luck as I head to teh repair shop and have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Funds

ebb + flow :: bathroom project

Slowly but surely, the Red Head and I have been researching, pinning and pricing bathroom details for an attempted addition to our master bedroom. So far the stars (and price tags) haven’t quite aligned but I haven’t lost hope yet. One day, honeycomb tile, you will be mine! Any good cost-saving recommendations? Send them my way!

Weekend Wrap Up 2.9

February 9, 2015

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

After 13 hours in the car with weekend with Lauryn Hill, Ben Folds and at the cast of Pitch Perfect (don’t judge), I’m feeling pretty refreshed. My little jaunt to Chicagoland brought tons of family, friends, food, sleep and belated Christmas presents. I have no complaints about any of those items, especially now as I head into the three craziest weeks of work I can remember. This stretch might even but holiday shenanigans to shame so don’t mind the sporadic zombie-esque posting. It comes with the territory. If nothing else, I’ve found seven great links to kick your week off right. Enjoy.

Suit Season

February 6, 2015

ebb + flow :: suit season

In the world of retail right now, we’re all about spring. I’ve got florals, patterns, bright colors and flowy dresses coming out of my ears at this point as we prep for a photo shoot next week (watch for some #bts here). Of course, I had to style a little imaginary look for myself among the chaos! Now, if only, I had some time to get to a beach! One can dream…

Have a great weekend, friends! I’m off to Chicago (definitely not a sandy or sunny beach there!) so I’ll catch you on Monday for a belated wrap up.

Just In Time

February 4, 2015

ebb + flow :: just in time

After days of deliberation, tons of opinions and lots of selfies, I ordered some new specs on Monday and they cannot arrive soon enough! I’ve got some tired eyes and two books on my to-do list. I’m about halfway through The Book Thief now and am totally hooked. Everything I Never Told You just arrived today but I have heard nothing but good things. I’m assuming my new glasses come with super reading powers so I can tear through these books in no time and dive into the next batch. That’s how glasses work, right?

That Look

February 2, 2015

ebb + flow :: the look

Things I know for certain:
– Black and white will never go out of style.
– Camel is also on the ‘never go out of style’ list.

Therefore, this look is perfect and I want it on my body. Please and thank you.

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

The last two days have had two things in common: an abundance of appetizers and great friends. So, no complaints here! And, to top it all off, it looks pretty sunny outside. Talk about a superb Sunday. I’m off to enjoy it before the big game. Hope you do the same and also enjoy these links from around the web this week.
