Dubai

Here’s a sentence I never thought I’d write: The Red Head and I just booked a trip to Dubai.

Huh? I’m just as shocked as you but when pals booked an around the world ticket that included some time in the incredible city we decided to crash their party! Any tips for staying cool in the desert in late August? I’m going to need them! More details to come as the big trip gets closer but the countdown is on! I’m pumped.

Weekend Wrap Up 6.5

June 5, 2016

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

This weekend gets two thumbs up from me. Time with friends, time with family, time with wine. No complaints here! And I love that the long days of summer have arrived. It manages to make even 8 p.m. on a Sunday bearable. Game of Thrones helps too, of course. And hopefully this wrap up of links from around the web this week is an added bonus. Enjoy!

Float

For the first time in a couple weeks, I’ve got a ‘quiet’ weekend ahead. A ‘quiet’ weekend that I managed to pack to the brim with appointments, movie dates, birthday parties, errands and work. Isn’t that normally how it goes? Hopefully I can carve out some actual quiet time and dive into my June book club read! I totally left the book club gals hanging last month when I didn’t even crack the read open. I need to redeem myself and, hopefully, sneak onto the water for a little bit of a recharge these next couple days, perhaps book in hand! Hope you’re able to do the same!

Boat Time

May 31, 2016

ebb + flow :: memorial day

What a holiday weekend it was! A bit of rain, a lot of sunshine, hours upon hours on Lake Minnetonka, cocktails outside, Game of Thrones viewing with friends, birthday dinners for my Red Head and tons of good times with family and friends. To say it was hard to get up at 5 a.m. this morning to teach cycling would be a gross understatement but I did it and I’m here! And I’m skipping the weekend wrap up. The internet was the least of my concerns these last few days so I don’t have many links to even share. But, the most important news of all, today is my Red Head’s birthday! I’m off to celebrate him and convince him that all the cool 29 year-old’s like to go to bed at 9 p.m. Clearly, I know how to party!

Summer Kick Off

May 27, 2016

ebb + flow :: weekend

The kick-off of summer has arrived! Memorial Day in Minnesota means boats on the lake, dinners on restaurant patios, cocktails at sunset and an added pep in my step. Even though they’re predicting rain all weekend, I’m still pumped. My sister is on her way here and we always manage to have fun, even in a downpour! Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend and start to the summer. It’s going to be a good one!

Make A Statement

Now that the sunshine has become a more common occurrence in the state of Minnesota, it’s time to ditch the boots. Lately, I’ve caught myself being drawn to two things: chunky heels and architectural details. Two things the moccasins I’m currently rocking don’t have. Time to up my shoe game like the inspiration above!

Tuesday Wrap Up

May 24, 2016

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

Welp, it’s Tuesday and I’m just now coming around to finish the weekend wrap up. That is, clearly, an indication of life around here lately. Lots of traveling, Beyonce concert viewing (ah-mazing!), work catch-up, life catch-up (can’t laundry do itself yet?) and summer fun. It’s great! Busy, but great. Tonight has more of the same and hopefully an early bedtime because I’m running on three hours of sleep. This lady is tired. Enjoy these links from around the web while I pry my eyelids awake for a couple more to-dos.

Summer Flow

May 20, 2016

ebb + flow :: summer flow

The weekends around here are starting to feel more and more like summer, are you feeling it too? I’m traveling the next few days but the Red Head has big plans of getting boats in the water so I’m hoping to return to that happy sight on Sunday! Then we can say summer has officially begun. Fingers crossed that the sun gets the memo!
