It’s a Date Night…

date1

One of the most fun things I have been enjoying as of late is getting to have date nights with the bou and another couple that one of us is friends with (though, let’s be honest – he has been a way big sport and goes on double dates with my friends far more than we do with his friends).  It is fun to get to hang out with friends like this – plus, it is another fabulous excuse to get a little dolled up for a week night and take a stroll out on the town.  Minneapolis certainly has a growing foodie world and I love every excuse to explore it more and more, so why not bring along some friends to indulge in the fun with.  Tonight we will be heading to Marvel and The Bachelor Farmer with two of my best friends from college who happened to fall in love and get married.  Eep!  Now, I just need to pick out the perfect look…

What do you do for date nights (with your bou or the girlies)?  Do you use it as an excuse to get dolled up?

Much love,

For the Momma’s…

Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all the mothers out there!  Whether you get to be with your momma, or momma’s with their little bits, I hope you have a fabulous day.  As someone who did not always have the easiest time on this day – I am sorry and know you are not alone AND don’t ever lose hope.  Miracles do happen – redemption is real – and I say that as someone who almost did give up and is living this very real redemption.  I love my momma and wouldn’t want any other lady to be my mom.  Just look at us…

…that sweet love has been restored and I couldn’t be happier.  Happy Mother’s Day, Momma!  Love you so much and am SO thankful for your life!!  And Happy Mother’s Day to all the other lover mothers!

Are you doing anything for Mother’s Day?  Do you have any fun mother/daughter traditions?

Much love,

Five Loves…

love1

 

I seriously have been having a love affair with maxis more and more as of late.  This beautiful print maxi has me desiring yet another one – it is so easy and stunning at the same time.

love2

 

Another love affair I have been having as of late is with the perfect accent chair.  Just look at that chair – everything about it is fabulous.  I even know right where I would put it in my house…maybe one day.

The perfect Saturday afternoon outfit.  Every little detail is fabulous.

I have a thing about bags – I feel that no woman can ever have too many.  I love this clutch for an evening out on a patio – now doesn’t that sound lovely?!

love5

 

This is a beautiful map of the world.  Love is not dead, my friends – and we cannot forget that.

Have you caught spring fever?  What does it have you having a love affair with?

Much love,

Five Loves…

I know it may seem funny, but I really think I realized this this week, maybe not for the first time, but certainly in a new way.  I guess I am still figuring it all out, but it is a fun adventure.

love2

 

I love the texture in this shirt.  It is has a real denim and light weight feel at the same time – lovely.

love3

 

Love this.  A headstand turn scorpion – two of my favorites meet.  There is something so calming about being upside down.  Nothing else matters there, because as soon as you let something else matter, you fall.

love4

 

Simple.  Chic.  Perfect for a transition season that is a grey winter fading into spring.  Love it.

love5

 

How pretty are these?!!  I cannot wait to try making them to add some pretty to my lemonade this summer.

What are you learning that you are loving these days?

Much love,

B
