Hello, loves! It’s been awhile since our last Happy Weekend post because of vacations and such – but it’s great to be back! We love sharing the fun stuff we find online throughout the week.:) I know we just said we wanted to hold onto summer for as long as possible, but the fall baked goods popping up everywhere are calling our names! How amazing and unique is that pie?!

Anyway…how are y’ll spending your Labor Day weekend? We’re taking it easy and are very excited about it!

He now seeks out undeveloped film from all over the country, develops it and posts it online on his Facebook and website. It’s just so interesting!

Dang, this week flew! We’re not complaining, but with lots of busy weekends for both of us, it seems like April came and went in a moment! Christa is headed to Boston on Friday night for a Father John Misty concert and then taking part as a model in the Trashion Fashion show in Hartford on Sat (eek, so nervous!), and Reg and her ladies are poppin’ up to Portland, Maine to explore and eat, eat, eat!

Any fun plans for your gorgeous weekend? xo

Happy Friday, loves — how’d you guys hold up this week? The week after Thanksgiving can sometimes feel extra long, but this year it didn’t seem too bad. This year we’re trying to be a little more conscious of our holiday habits — actively trying to keep our nutrition and exercise in check, and budgeting ourselves so we don’t overspend. It can be a challenge at times, but it seems to be helping, because we’re feeling good! Are you guys doing anything differently this year to feel a little more balanced? Hope you guys have a great weekend — see you on Monday!

Happy Friday, loves. How has everyone’s week been? Has your personal clock settled into daylight savings yet? While I really don’t look forward to the darker evenings, I will admit that waking up to a brighter morning has been nice. I’ve been rising before my alarm on most mornings, which is so much more pleasant than the sound of an alarm. It also helps me to get a little more done earlier in the day on the weekends. I’m going to try to get to a morning spin class tomorrow. Considering I much prefer working out in the evenings, we’ll see how that goes! Hope you all have a beautiful weekend ahead of you. See you on Monday!

Guys, this week! It felt long, but also extremely quick at the same time – how does that even happen?! No complains anymore, because it’s Friday (yay!).

Hello, all! How’s everyone’s week been? We were both able to keep busy, but not hectic, which is always appreciated! This weekend we have all sorts of things on the agendas… Christa will be celebrating her boyfriend’s birthday as well as a friend’s bachelorette party, while I’ll be mostly taking it easy since I’ve been away the last few weekends. I’m thinking of making brunch tomorrow and having my first attempt at paddle-boarding on Sunday, wish me luck!
