Monday Memo: Three

“I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.”

 - Van Gogh


We had the absolute best weather this weekend, went on two 5 mile walks, and binged Dream Home Makeover on Netflix. Overall, I'd call that a successful weekend! 


Weekly Goals:

  • Do a ballet workout every day. I'm currently hooked on Ballet Beautiful! P.S. Our Peloton bike delivery got delayed and now we have no idea when it will arrive... Big bummer.   
  • Finally get a hair cut and color. I think it has been something like 13 months since my last! 
  • Eat at least one cup of kale salad with dinner each night. I'm trying my hardest to develop a taste for it!
  • Watch a classic fall movie... Thinking When Harry Met Sally or You've Got Mail.
  • Organize my last of my kitchen cabinets.  


A Few Favorites:

  1. Just got this pair of sneakers and I have been loving them.
  2. Ordered Louie Giglio's new advent devotional and it is beyond beautiful! 
  3. I'm going through an Italian sparkling water phase and love these lime flavored ones from Wholefoods. But really, does anything beat Topo Chico?? 
  4. Finally posted the bowls that we eat on a weekly basis in this post
  5. I just finished Jenna Bush Hager's new book on Audible and it was so sweet. She is such a great storyteller! 
  6. We finally got around to watching Yellowstone and loved every minute of it. The end of season 3?! 
  7. The new cookware decision was finally made! After reading lots of reviews, we went with this copper set and are hoping it will last us a long while! 
  8. Currently reading Maybe You Should Talk to Someone and it is beyond fascinating. Also just love the storyline!
  9. Currently crushing on all things deep emerald green like this gorgeous coat and rich burgundy like this $35 sweater
  10. Looking for a quick fall cookie?? These Spiced Snickerdoodles do not disappoint!
