Weekend Recap // Savoring Life Slowly

{Friday night’s tradition}

It’s crazy to think that a year ago, to this date, we were celebrating little miss’ 1 month birthday. We were overly fatigued, first time parents, who could barely keep their eyes open during our family’s Super Bowl party. Fast forward to yesterday, and instead of being fatigued parents who could barely keep their eyes open…. I was busy running around with a very active toddler. What a difference. A good difference. And I’d have to say that’s how most of the weekend was spent… mini dance parties with little miss, park dates (with small tantrums when it was time to leave)…. and efficiently sneaking in a quick brunch. I’m left wondering where the weekend went and how we’re already at Monday morning….

It’s a small reminder to me that life goes quickly… so, I did a little check-in with what my intention was for this coming year (which was to “Savor Life Slowly.”)….. and, while nothing is done slowly these days (I wonder why….), I’d have to say that I’ve been much more intentional in taking in every moment…. from that first sip of wine on Friday evening, to my alone time during my long Saturday morning runs…. I’ve been working on enjoying the moment, however it comes, more fully. And, while little miss presents me with new challenges daily (motherhood update coming later this week….), I know this time will pass and I’ll be left wondering where it went….

So, as we head into the week ahead, I’m keeping my intention at the forefront of my mind. Have a good one friends!

 Planning on whipping up a batch of my favorite egg muffins for quick breakfasts this week, along with my cauliflower ground turkey for dinner and some lunch leftovers. Also working on some yummy Valentine’s Day donuts… stay tuned.

As always, I did a little bit of online perusing this weekend…. I snagged this sand colored drapey cardigan (which is on sale!) for transitional weather…. I plan on wearing this henley tank underneath. I’m also loving this asymmetrical top (which comes in so many color options), oversized cold shoulder tee (I’m partial to the black), lightweight long sleeve tunic top, and this short sleeve pullover sweatshirt for everyday living. I also think this grey ruffle and lace tank and this striped long sleeve tee are cute alternatives to a plain top. Oh, and these grey terry joggers are looking perfect for a day of errands or day at the park.

It’s actually been fairly cold these past few days, and I have a feeling temps are going to go back and forth for the next few months. So, I snagged this grey fuzzy sweatshirt (but it comes in so many different color options), and have my eye on this gorgeous sleeveless sweater, off the shoulder sweatshirt,  and this open stitch grey sweater (which looks so pretty!). I’m also in the market for a good transitional coat and am looking at this lightweight khaki trench coat, white drape front jacket,  and this adorable blush blazer (love the shape and drapery).

I also couldn’t resist a few pieces for little miss (spring fever I guess….). My mom bought her this adorable striped ruffle one piece (she’s already worn it twice). I bought her a few of these ruffle onesies (she grew out of the ones I bought her last year…. obviously, but they were the best), and these adorable light grey and polka dot joggers….. and these striped pink and white bubble shorts are just tooooo cute.
