Happy Weekend!

So many mixed emotions this weekend! Tonight Reg will be bringing one of her very good friends to the airport to move back to England (don’t go!!), which will be a very heart wrenching process, but then is immediately following it with a weekend of girl fun time with Christa. We’ll be flea-marketing all day tomorrow at Brimfield, with fun photo shoots on Sunday.

What do you guys have a going on? Is it as much as an emotional roller coaster as ours?

Have a great week ended, loves

Happy Friday, loves! Well this week flew by, dang. And as we mentioned before, we have busy busy¬†weekends ahead! But we’re not complainin’, the work week is almost over.

Can we talk about those dope sneakers for a moment? We’re feeling the spring closet itch, we want new everything ‚Äď shoes, skirts, dresses, bags ‚Äď you name it, we want it. Something about this crisp spring air invites the need for new clothes, ha. But we’re also trying to be good with our money, so we gotta stay strong, think about inventing new outfit combinations. Any tips for revitalizing your closet in the spring without breaking your budget? xo G&M

Can we just talk about this delicious looking truck for a second?! We don’t know if we’ve ever seen an automobile¬†look so damn fine. Carb City, and we want in on that.

ANYWAYS, back to real life. We’re¬†here¬†with our Friday links (sorry for the radio silence last Friday, life can be so hectic sometimes!) Christa was in Colorado with Curtis visiting her brother from last Thursday-Tuesday (you may have seen some instagram pictures here & here), and this week has just been insane! I think the full moon week crazy-vibes came a week early…

But is everyone amped for the weekend? We’ll be spending it in Hartford together, shooting our first official contribution post for CT Eats Out! Can’t wait to team up with these guys and share with you all what we come up with. We’ll be doing a monthly post for them, so stay tuned!

Hello, dearies ‚ÄĒ hope you all had a lovely¬†week, and have an even lovelier¬†couple of days ahead of you. We’re stunned¬†that next week is Thanksgiving. How did that happen??? It feels like as we get older, time goes by so much quicker. Are any of you all feeling similarly?

This past week our small home town in CT¬†experienced some devastating news about a young mother, a member of¬†our graduating¬†class, who¬†suddenly passed. In combination of learning this, of the troubling¬†news in Paris, as well as world-wide current events ¬†‚ÄĒ it’s definitely resulting in some self-reflection. This week we’re feeling especially grateful for our friends, family, and the wonderful community that we were raised in.

While we have mushy hearts this week, we also still have our care-free nature about us. We’ve rounded up our weekly¬†links for you all, hope you enjoy, and we’ll see you on Monday ūüôā

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.
