Happy Friday! And happy three-day weekend! I never know if Thomas is going to take off holidays or not (depends on his workload) so I actually haven’t heard if it will be a three-dayer for our fam, but I hope so. Either way we have a party to attend and a few fun things planned 🙂
Here is a recap of our week!
Monday: Pink Patio Party
I hosted a girls night on Monday with a pink theme: rosé and Beautycounter and pink outfits.
Because it was a Monday (random day I know, but it just worked best for calendars!) it was low-key and casual.
I did make a pretty cheese plate that was DEMOLISHED by my friends! Love it.
We talked and talked and passed around some products so they could smell/feel/try them out. Everyone loved Countertime!
Free Body Butter This Weekend
If you haven’t heard, there is a free gift with purchase going on: spend $150 and get a free Body Butter in Citrus Mimosa (worth $39). I’m ordering some things myself because I really want to try it!
Tuesday: Soccer + Trout
On Tuesday we had Mazen’s first soccer practice of the season. He did so well getting ready and heading right out on the field. (We often have trouble with ‘new things.’) His teammates and coaches are the same, so that helped!
Birch and I sat in the grass eating Peanut Butter Bambas and cheering him on!
We had trout with beans and mushrooms and corn for dinner.
Look at that big boy putting his dish in the dishwasher without prompting! Go Mazen!
Wednesday: Baths + Blueberries
Bath tub = play pen! This is how I shower now. It was all fun and games until he realized he could stand up and reach the faucet!! Luckily he was a good listener when I said “no” and I was out of the shower by this point. The toys kept him entertained for the first 5 minutes!
Blueberries + oatmeal + peanut butter for breakfast
We had a new sitter start this week and I was able to go to strength class on Wednesday, which was such a treat. Thomas took an early lunch break so it was the first time we had done the class together since I was pregnant!
Kale salad + leftover ravioli + avocado
Plenty stuffed peppers + cornbread + wilted kale
I’m prepping this post on Thursday AM so it can go up on Friday so I have nothing to report for Thursday! Hope it was a good day – haha.
These are so fun I just have to share! Hope you saw them in my Insta Stories earlier this week. Teleties = the modern scrunchie. So cute and come in so many designs! I ordered a small in the Millennial Pink (naturally). No sagging pony tail here!

I saw a woman wearing one of those hair ties on her wrist in blue and clear and it looked like an umbilical cord to me — haha!
I agree that they look strange! but they are so functional.
I love your outdoor furniture! Where is it from? Do you store your cushions somewhere when you aren’t using them to protect them from the elements? Mine always fade or get yucky…even under a covered porch!
It’s an outdoor couch from Pottery Barn – the Palmetto – divided into a love seat and a chair. I keep the cushions inside in a closet because yes, they will get destroyed anywhere that has leaves and rain. It’s kind of a bummer to have to move them in and out because the furniture doesn’t look as nice empty and I’m less likely to just go down there for a quick hour if I have to pull cushions out. I DO have 3 sets of slip covers for them because the older ones were getting gross so what I should do is have a full-time set that stays on outside that is older and I don’t care about and then a nice set (the blue Sunbrella you see) for parties!
How do you make your trout?
We used a bunch of spices and then grilled it in a grill basket
What kind of mushrooms did you use with the green beans and how did you prepare them? Looks delicious!
They were a mix and we sautéed them with the green beans and pinches of this and that – mostly lemon, salt, and pepper.
Such a nice entertaining space. I love the cheese tray you put together and I also like the idea of putting the glasses over ice. I never would have thought of that.
Birch just has the cutest little smile. He’s always so happy. ?
I was confused by your ice comment – those aren’t cubes they’re reflections of the sky!
No link for the Teleties? Where did you buy them?
How do you get Birch on your back!? I’ve tried and tried and when I’m by myself I can’t manage getting our 8 month old on my back in the Ergo.
It’s hard!! I watched a You Tube video and I always do it over the couch in case he slips.
