Weekend Plans and Links

Happy, happy Friday! Sheesh, I never thought this week would end. Anyone else? I just wanted to hop on quick today to chat a little and share a few weekend plans and links.

Weekend Plans and Links

outfit details found in this post!

We have a bit of an exciting weekend ahead of us … I’M GETTING A NEW CAR TODAY! *Insert all the dancing lady emojis here* I admit that I’m nervous about it all – I get very weird with major life purchases – but I look forward to having brand spankin’ new wheels. If that wasn’t enough, my first 5k race is tomorrow night! It’s a glow run, which I think will add an extra element of fun. Give me all the glow sticks! I feel so ready – my goal is to finish in less than 30 minutes (you can see my training plan in this post). Ryan decided to do the race with me last-minute, so I’m happy to have a running buddy for moral support.

And now, onto a few of my favorite links from the week.

Rachel wrote a great post on how to get over the Instagram slump.

Who else has been following the Tinder kids? Their first meeting this week was so awkwardly cute. I’m rooting for them!

After reading this article, dot journaling sounds right up my alley. Do any of you do this?

I briefly discussed this concealer on Instagram Stories – it’s SO good. For $9, the formula ranks up there with more expensive versions that I’ve tried.

This might be one of the most delicious pasta salad recipes I ever did see.

Alright, I’m out of here. Time to go pick up the car! Be sure to follow along with all the fun on Instagram this weekend. Hope you have a great weekend!

Any fun plans for the weekend?

Psst – in case you missed it this week, I shared the paint colors in our modern-style farmhouse and how I finally found my perfect pair of jeans.

  4. Ahh what a fun weekend ahead for you! How exciting, I love all the new car feels. And a glow run sounds like so much fun! Makes me want to get back into the 5k scene:)! Anything with mozzarella and basil I love, so I’ll have to give that pasta salad a try!

    • It was SO fun – probably could’ve been better organized, but it was the first year that our town did it so maybe it will be better next year. I hit my goal, and that’s all I ultimately care about!

  • #Bookworms, rejoice! This is our kinda day! 📚 On #WorldBookDay, I simply want to say thank you to all authors. Your characters, stories and words change my life daily, and I can’t imagine a life without them. Happy reading to all! #bookstagram

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
  • Today was a good day to have a great day. ☀️ #happy #thursdaythoughts
