Hey all, whatchya got going on this weekend? We’re embracing these last few weeks of winter with a little r&r, and feel pretty shameless about it. Christa has a couple low-key birthday get-togethers, while Reg will be found watching movies on the couch under mountains of blankies (shocking).

Have a beautiful weekend 🙂

cct // J.Crew Factory has 40%-60% off all items right now, online and in stores! I would say start checking out items for gifts, but I’m more about grabbing myself a few things…oops! I’m thinkin this, this & this.

rkv // Homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese just never gets old

Hello, and Happy Friday! This week seemed to do a number on us both, are you guys in the same boat? We’re pretty excited to curl up this weekend and do a whole lot of nothing, shamelessly. Walking to get coffee counts as cardio… right? Right.

cct // I just snagged a really awesome spindle bed on Craigslist with the intention of painting it, but the light finished wood is pretty nice – still debating what to do…

rkv // My coworker recently introduced me to the pretty wonderful pinterest board “My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter,” and I love it tenderly.

cct // Speaking of beds and bedrooms, this great Apartment Therapy article 10 Steps to a Better Bedroom sparked the desire to check Craigslist

rkv // 10 creative grilled cheeses to make your heart skip a beat

cct // I visited my brother at college last weekend and came back with an awesome Taylor Swift remix. I forgot what it’s like to listen to remixes at house parties of people you don’t know, and it was great

rkv // Since we’re on the T-swift note, this 80s aerobics/”Shake It Off” video is sheer joy.

cct // Aerie is my favorite for bras and underwear and I’m happy to hear their anti-photoshopping campaign worked for them!

rkv // It’s sad that it really never occurred to me that Banksy could be a woman.

Apple, Bacon & Cheddar Grilled Cheese

This sweet and savory twist on a classic sandwich will have your mouth watering and tummy thanking you – pair it up with a cup of tomato or butternut soup and have yourself a delicious and hearty autumn meal.

You’ll be needing:

– 1 apple of your choice

– some extra sharp white cheddar

– 2 pieces of bacon, crisped to perfection (ham or turkey would also work well)

– 2 slices of bread of your choice, we like panini style

– a bit of butter

To make:

You likely all know how to make a grilled cheese, but in case you don’t…

Evenly spread one side of each slice of bread. Place one slice on skillet, butter side down (we used my mom’s panini press for those fancy grill marks). While it heats, add the fillings and top with other slice of bread. Once golden, flip and cook until cheese is gooey. Cut and serve.

* Note – someday I may provide my tips for cooking perfect bacon, stay tuned for that day
