Wowie, Friday already! The countdown to halloween costumes has begun…what are you being?? Christa is twinning with a friend for a very fun, homemade costume, and Reg sadly has made very little progress on that front (but luckily her wardrobe allows her to be an impromptu gypsy at any moment). What’re you guys gonna be?? Have you checked out Studio DIY for ideas?? They’re all AMAZING.

Have a great weekend!

Hello first Fall Friday 🙂 We welcome you with wide open arms. This weekend is looking like it’ll be just the right amount of crispiness in the air and we are mega amped. We also get to have a little galpal time, with us both hanging out on the Hartford scene for some catching up, dining out, and a photo shoot with our collab team over at CT Eats Out. Can’t wait!

See ya all Monday!

Oh thank lawdy it’s Friday. We’ve both had our hands full at work these days, and definitely need to a little time to just unwind. Now that it’s finally warming up a bit over here, we can start going on walks, sitting on porches or in parks to read (blankets still required), and going on bike rides to relax and alleviate some stress. We’re hoping we can squeeze some time in for such leisurely delights these next couple of days.

Hope you all have beautiful weekends —

Yay, it’s Friday! We’re counting down the hours until our G&M weekend in Boston! Our friend Brittany (last seen here), will be joining us, and we literally can’t stop talking about how excited we are to get Union Square Donuts, ha! Christa cut out treats for the month of January, but obviously this is the 1 exception, and how sweet it will be!

For all of you out there getting hit with the massive snow storm, stay warm and safe! We’re a little sad we won’t be getting much (or any) snow, but our time will come. Cheers to a fabulous weekend! xo G&M

I mean, it doesn’t really get much more Halloween-y than a classic Hitchcock scream, amiright? We’re big fans of this holiday around these parts — there’s just something so fun about listening to eerie surf-rock, watching spooky flicks, getting all dressed up, and eating so much candy that you feel like a kid again. Are you guys getting into the spirit? We wanna know what your costumes are! Here’s to a bitchin’ Halloween weekend, and let’s all hope no one gets stabbed in the shower like that chick up there *points up*. Too much?? 🙂
