Welcome to the Weekend


I’ve been having a hard time sleeping lately. I lay down at night and run long to-do lists in my head like a crazy person. And it won’t stop. I have a few theories as to why this is happening to me. Could be social media overstimulization. Could be Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD. Or it could be that giant cup of coffee I drink at 4pm to get me through the rest of the day.

It’s totally the coffee.

My friend told me about this ambient music website that helps her fall asleep and I was super skeptical. I mean whale noises and chirping birds don’t really do it for me.

I went ahead and tried it anyway. This music is so calming I’m not even kidding. My husband was asleep is 3 seconds (that is totally NOT an exaggeration). It took me awhile longer cause you know — lists.

But seriously — if you need a chill out session — check it out.

bedsidetableOn my nightstand: I’ve been heavy into design books lately. Right now I have Sarah Style by Sarah Richardson and The Nesting Place by Myquillyn Smith. I’ve read The Nesting Place twice already — it’s that good.

I am most definitely in love with this tufted bench with antiqued gold legs from Target. And when the Target associate told me that it has been discontinued and it also happened to be the last one on the shelf — I grabbed it without a second thought. But when I got it home — I wasn’t wowed. So back it went. I hope it finds a good home.


I did some rearranging and crazy, frenzied spring cleaning in the kitchen and I loved how fresh it felt. Now I only have about 5 other rooms to spring clean.

So how was your week? 

And as always

stay connected
