Friday Faves!

{via}
Happy Friday!! Another week already gone...and somehow we're in mid-August! What the freak is happening with time??? Anyway, rather than dwell on that, I'll focus on my favorites:

{1}-Favorite City: Chicago
After our 4 day vacay in Chicago, I've decided that it's my newest, favorite big city. There was so much to do (we still have a ton we would do if we went back), the city offered so much in one place (lake, river, beach, skyscrapers, small neighborhoods) and we met some really awesome people (I've texted with the girl in the couple we met and hung out with every day since!). Not to mention all of the amazing food, and the quality time with my husband (all the heart eyes!)

{2} Favorite Delivery
After some annoyances, my Nordstrom multi-color glitter earrings FINALLY arrived Wednesday (they were cancelled by Nordtroms, then re-ordered, then delayed...basically I figured the universe was telling me I shouldn't have them), but they are here and they are beautiful! If I only keep one pair, it will likely be these because they are gorgeous! (but I'm still having trouble deciding to let go of the pink ones haha)

{3} Favorite Purchase
This MIRA water bottle! I reviewed it yesterday (you can find it here). It's just like a Swell bottle but basically half the price. Love that it keeps my drinks cold all day long!

{4} The Weather
I know sometimes this is in my favorites, but when it's as nice out as it has been this week, it deserves mention. I sat out on our deck for 4 hours reading yesterday, and did not drip one tiny droplet of sweat the entire time because it was SO gorgeous out, and--my personal favorite--no humidity!! Cooper even came out and joined me for a little bit! The weather is supposed to be just as gorgeous today and I have some pool time on the docket. Give me all the pretty weather and sunshine, please and thank you!!!!

{5} Puppy cuteness
This week's funnies revolve around dogs--Cooper had his teeth cleaned and a couple of tooth extractions on Monday, which inspired my dog gifs.

Happy Friday, loves! Hope you have a great weekend in store!
Catch you on Monday!!

  6. I have never been to Chicago. I'll add it to my list. or if you move there then I'll come visit. I usually only visit cities friends or family live in lol. I can't believe it's mid-august and I haven't accomplished one thing all summer. it's really quite sad. i shouldve taken a trip or gone on vacation or at least went up to OC for one day. I just let the whole 3 months pass me by. lame.

  9. Chicago is the best! I grew up there and just in the past year moved away and we miss it so much! It is such a wonderful city--I am so glad you enjoyed it! Love the Kate Spade earrings. They are so much fun! I have to check out your Mira bottle review because I have been eyeing those Swell bottles but have a hard time justifying that much money for a water bottle! Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. You know I'm still envious over your chicago trip!!
    And those earrings - well I say keep both! Haha but I'm the wrong one to ask. I have both (and the solid gold). But if you really must choose - I say the multi colored b/c they are more versatile. But that pains me to say b/c you know how much i LOVE pink!
    Have a great wknd!

  23. Any bottle that can keep a drink cold all day is a winner in my book! Chicago is one of our all time favorite cities, too! So much to do there at any time of year!
