This and That No. 22

May 5, 2017

Happy Friday and happy Cinco de Mayo!!

Cinco de Mayo is extra special around here because it’s my anniversary with Dave. It’s been two years! And yes, it’s on Cinco de Mayo, haha! It’s actually pretty fun since we have double the reason to celebrate. And drink allll the margaritas! I really can’t believe it’s been two years though. I guess time flies when you’re having fun! 😉 It’s the longest relationship either of us have ever been in, so it’s definitely a big deal. Not to be cheesy, but I can’t tell you guys how lucky I feel to have Dave in my life! Two and a half years ago I was heartbroken and pretty convinced I was never going to find anyone…then he came along and changed everything. It just goes to show that good things come to those who wait! Also, can we talk about how we were basically matching in the photo above with our gingham? I’ve trained him well, haha!

This weekend we’re going to celebrate our anniversary with lots of margaritas and Mexican food. Then on Sunday we’re doing an early Mother’s Day celebration for my mom at one of our favorite restaurants. The whole point was to be on the patio (I was picturing a sunny day with a glass of rosé), but turns out it’s supposed to rain on Sunday. Total bummer! Since when does it rain in San Diego?! We’ll see how the patio situation turns out– follow along on Insta-stories for snippets of my weekend. 🙂 Have a good one!

1 // Williams Sonoma Aerin Collection

Williams Sonoma just released the Aerin Collection by Aerin Lauder and I want everything. I mean…where do I begin? The stunning blue and white details? The SCALLOPED white dinner plates?!?! Game over. I’m done.

2 // My future home

I saw this Los Angeles home tour on MyDomaine yesterday and basically drooled all over my desk. From the bistro bar stools to the white kitchen to the cozy leather couch…I want it all. I feel like it encompasses everything I want in my future home– it’s the perfect blend of classic/coastal and California boho/modern. I also love that everything wasn’t CRAZY expensive and the owners scored some great estate sale pieces. So cool! Definitely check it out for some home inspo.

3 // Girlboss

I started watching the Netflix series Girlboss this week. I heard mixed reviews about it, but I really did love the book so I thought I’d give it a shot. Even with all the stuff going on with Nasty Gal now, Sophia’s story is pretty crazy and inspiring! The girl who plays her, Britt Robertson, is so cute and I think she does an awesome job. The episodes are only 30 minutes long so it’s a quick, easy watch. Definitely recommend!

4 // The shirt dress

I love a good shirt dress, but for some reason they are probably the hardest thing to find. For being such a wardrobe staple, I don’t understand why this is?! My search for the perfect shirt dress is now over with this Banana Republic scalloped shirt dress. It doesn’t get any cuter!!

5 // The perfect margarita recipe

Since it is Cinco de Mayo after all, here’s the perfect margarita recipe for any festivities you have going on tonight. Forget about sugary margarita mix and just go for classic, fresh lime juice (maybe add a little simple syrup if you like it sweet). I know I’m making this tonight!
