Hey, girl. I see you’re wearing your party pants because it’s Friday.

Yaaaaas it is indeedy! We’re jazzed to recover from our first week back to reality. How did you all hold up? Hopefully it wasn’t too bad! Ours started out rough but smoothed out as the week went on. Now we’re ready to get back to the Friday Night Lights marathon that we left off on! See ya on Monday!

cct // Ha, this is cute – How to drink espresso like an Italian 

rkv // I’ve been using this fitness challenge as a basis to jump start my 2017, and so far I’m into it! I’m not following the plan perfectly, because frankly fitting the gym into my schedule 5 days a week is nearly impossible. BUT I’m making an active effort to do at least 3 days a week. The moves are great because you can easily add or decrease weight or reps to make it more or less challenging.

Happy weekend, loves! How was your week? We found ours to be long…but we’ve finally made it to those two blissful days! Christa and Curtis are trying to figure out a plan to find time to see all of the oscar buzz movies in theaters now, and Reg will be doing cutesy Boston things with her roomie like checking out the Christmas Tree lighting in Faneuil Hall. Whatchy’all gonna be doing??

It’s one of those rainy Fridays over here, which may linger into the weekend, but we’re strangely okay with that. While of course we love a beautiful sunny day, sometimes you can feel very on-the-go because you’re trying to make the most of it while you can. There’s definitely something to say for the every now-and-then lazy weekends, where you can see the grey sky and feel at peace with unwinding and reflecting.

Hopefully you guys all get to enjoy your weekends, rain or shine. See ya Monday!

rkv // What to eat after a good workout

cct // I’ve link to this before, but I’m doing it again because I love it so much! One of our favorite blogs, A Cup of Jo, has done a Motherhood series for that past couple years about American mothers living with their families and children in another country. She interviews them and asks them to talk about their lives and the surprising things about raising a child in a foreign land. There are photos, stories, and so many interesting bits of information to take in – I’m obsessed! Check out the whole archive here!

TGIF! This weekend is going to be jam-packed-fun because Christa’s boyfriend Curtis is turning 30 on Monday (🎉), and special plans have been made 🙂 They’re still secret, but keep an eye out on instagram for fun pics!

We’re back in the New England heat wave, so stay cool & enjoy your weekend, loves! xo


cct // These budget buys are *super cute*

rkv // I’ve been trying to get a little more meditation in the evenings and this app knocks me out cold

cct // These descriptions for “What Your Zodiac Sign Says About Your Coping Technique” are shockingly accurate (for myself and the people in my life at least!)

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

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!

cct // I love finding DIYs that are beautiful and not that hard (insert heart eye emoji here)

rkv // Often times when I tell people that I can be pretty shy, they’re a little surprised (considering I definitely have a boisterous side). But one arena that always makes me tense up is networking, so I found this to be a nice read.

Hey dolls — whatchya all up to this weekend? My house is gonna be a little on the quiet side this weekend, with one of my roommates out of town. I also have my first big hair chop in years coming up tomorrow. I’m freakin’ out a little, but looking forward to a fresh change. I’m also hoping to get in a thorough apartment clean AND a d.i.y. — this is probably all far too ambitious for two days, but we’ll see how it goes! Christa will be bouncing all around as well, with a friend’s birthday bonfire celebration, checking out Hartford’s Open Studios, and a swanky new cocktail bar that opened up, Little River Restoratives.

Hope you all have a nice weekend, see you on Monday!
