Happy Tuesday, friends! Phew, what a weekend! I'm finally home and actually back in my office for the first (real) time in over a week. Last week was Porter Flea prep (and still is) and this past weekend was spent on the go. Saturday we had errands and bit to do in Nashville, and we met up with Sarah (from Yes and Yes) and her friend Darcy at Mas Tacos for a delicious lunch. Then we high tailed it home to rush to my little cousin's dance recital. Immediately following that we loaded up our cars and headed to the river where we camped until yesterday. I didn't even look at my phone the entire two days we were down there. It was amazing. We grilled out, had a campfire, broke in the RV, took out the boat, drank a lot of beer, got entirely too much sun, and watched Toby have the time of his life. It was the perfect mixture of sun and fun. Of course I managed to get too much sun and even with boat loads of SPF, my sleeve swelled up and burnt. The pain coming off of my forearm yesterday was indescribable. A mixture of what felt like ninth degree burns (ha) and tendonitis. Luckily it wore off and now I just need my red body to turn into a tan one. We all had such a blast though. I think the whole unplugging bit really helped, too. It's not hard for a lot of people to unplug, but I usually stress out about missing an email or something. Just goes to show how much we inflict on ourselves. I hope I can start unplugging more often (and spending more time at the river!)
Remember last week when I made the quip about owning all of the blue and white polka dot dresses? Well, here you go again! Nothing special or amazing about it, but it is another one of those awesome JCPenney finds. It could probably use a few accessories, but in all honesty it was the perfect run-around-town outfit for the day. At this point I think I just need to order about 2 more backup pairs for all 3 of the MIA Jukebox wedges that I have. I seriously wear these shoes more than any others (except my trusty tan Target flats... they're my new "black flat crutch" haha). They're the perfect wedge in height, comfort and style. My nails have been painted yellow for the past couple of weeks, but I actually swapped it out for a peachy coral the other day. That's not the point I was getting at: My nails look diseased! Ugh, that yellow is seriously such a gorgeous shade when applied, but the aftermath is straight up icky. It doesn't help that my nails are chipped and broken from working with my hands the past few days either. It's a little bit embarrassing to be honest haha
As I said up above, I'm finally back in the work saddle for a few hours each day this week. I'll be working on design work and sponsor bits during that time. If you're looking for either a new look for your blog/biz, or maybe some new customers/readers, shoot me an email and let's work together! We head out Friday morning to get set up early at Porter Flea, then we'll be in Nashville until Saturday night. There's a canoeing trip on Sunday but Mike and I aren't sure we'll feel quite up to speed to attend. A 10-mile float that takes roughly 12 hours?! Yow. I think I got enough sun this past weekend to last me quite a while! Speaking of Porter Flea - there are still a few Preview Night tickets left. Friday night's event is from 5pm til 8pm and you'll not only get a leg up on shopping, but you'll also get plenty of delicious beer and snacks. It's 21+ and you can find out more at the Porter Flea site. The best part about Friday? Skipping out on the insane crowds! December's event was absolutely insane. I hope everyone comes back for the summer event this weekend! Let me know if you'll be there!
