Monday Round Up: Easter + Weekending

Happy Monday folks! Well, for me today is the first day back to a regular work schedule. Part of me is ready to be back but the other part will miss working from home. Oh well, what are ya gonna do? #adulting

The weekend was really good for me. The weather could have been better but that's beside the point. It was really relaxing which is exactly what I wanted. On Friday I met up for dinner with one of my oldest friends. Even though she lives close by it is really hard to connect with our busy lives. Thankfully she is the kind of friend that getting together feels like little time has passed. We took up a table at a restaurant  for a couple of hours but it was good to catch up.

Saturday I did a couple of things. I started my day with Flat Tummy Tea. I have been seeing a lot about it and have been desperately try to get in better shape. I thought it couldn't hurt to try it out. We'll see,  I will keep you posted. The renovations are really coming along and its time to pick up a few other things. I called up my friendly, neighborhood decorator (AKA my mom) to run around with me. We hit up HomeGoods, Kirkland's, Michaels, Pier1 and Marshall's. Unfortunately we only had luck at HomeGoods. I got one end table and one item for the coffee table. I still need another end table, a tray for the coffee table and decor items and a rug. Lots to do still. That night we drove up to our friends house to brew some beer and hang out. It was a super chill night and I spent most of the evening eating animal cookies and being crushed by their giant dog, who I love. We haven't been up to their house in a while so it was good to go up there and just relax. Overall a good night.






Sunday was Easter. I know some people try to do both families but that's doing too much for us so we trade off. This year we were with D's family. Lots of kiddos over there now so it was fun to watch them all play and go crazy for Easter candy and it's nice to catch up with the in-laws of course. We hung out and for some reason was watching the original Batman movie. I will guess it is because my nephews love Batman, which I fully support. Overall it was a good Easter.



Easter is one of those holidays I always dress up for. We always did as kids when we went to Church and had our fancy dresses and hats like good southern girls. Although, we are not southern we were formal like we were. I do not need to get dressed up anymore, but if you know me you know that I love to dress up. Any excuse really. A couple of weeks ago I went to one of my favorite local boutiques, Proper + Prim, looking for something else but found these pants instead. I will be honest i had to size up a bit so they are a bit loose but I kind of like it that way. I bought them not knowing how I would pair them but just that I loved them so. After much careful thought I remembered this old crop top. I realized the pants were a bit high waisted so I could definitely pull this off. I love this top. Every time I have needed it, it has come through perfectly. I don't know what I would do without it. I topped it off with my trusty nude heels from Vince Camuto and this crystal necklace from Target that I wear all the time. I love the ladylike colors and delicate fabrics contrasted with a structured silhouette. Perfection. I am pretty proud of  myself. What do you think? Leave me a comment below I would love to hear from you.
