This week has been a bit rough for us. A lot has been going on. We came right off a whirlwind return from our vacation and went head first into my Mother-in-Law’s wedding for which I did the flowers (to be shared soon!!) and was also a bridesmaid. Then, just a day after the wedding, Matt’s grandmother went into the hospital. At 95, nobody is super surprised when she has health issues, but as her primary caretakers, we have spent a lot of time this week trying to figure out what the next step is for our living situation. We still don’t have a solid plan, but it’s something we’re hoping to work on this weekend with her expected return home. I definitely plan to share more with you guys at some point since I feel that there are probably many of you out there who are dealing with or will be dealing with caring for an aging parent (or grandparent) in the future.
Aside from all of that (as if there needs to be anything else!), Matt had surgery yesterday on his eyes, so I’m working on nursing him back to health. He had been living with a cornea issue for the last ten years and hopefully he’ll be able to see clearly in a few days!
As not-fun as some of this week was, we’re looking forward to a fun weekend! We’re having happy hour at our house tomorrow and will be celebrating a wedding shower and a close friend’s birthday on Saturday. On Sunday, we’re going to celebrate both of our Mothers with a little cookout over at our house after we work on our vegetable garden.
I’m looking forward to life normalizing a bit in the coming weeks, so we’ll see if that happens!!
Today, I have a few things that caught my eye throughout the week:
The List Week 19
S’Quiela – I was wandering around the grocery store waiting on the pharmacy to fill all of Matt’s post-surgery scrips when stumbled upon the prettiest bottles of grapefruit soda. Then I looked closer and realized it was alcoholic grapefruit soda… even better! I picked up a few bottles to give a try this weekend. I’ll let you know how it is.
Love & Marriage – I was pretty excited to discover that one of my favorite people – Jessie Artigue of Style + Pepper is starting a podcast! She and her husband are in it together and they’re talking about marriage. The podcast is titled, “Marriage is Funny”. I can’t wait until it comes out!
More Mudcloth – I love the simple graphic patterns of African mud cloth, but it can be pretty pricey! These Kuba Cloth pillows are still $175 each, but that’s a lot less than the $250 Euro price tags I saw in Paris.
Obsessed – I pretty much love everything by Ulla Johnson. Her feminine chic boho style is right up my alley. I am especially obsessing over these gorgeous tassel d’orsays. (Check out the Jaipur dress too….love)
Just My Style – I found this photo by Kate Zimmerman while browsing around the web the other day and just love how summery it made me feel. It’s still pretty neutral and natural, but a bit more playful than what I currently have going. The southwest boho vibes are spot on for a new project I’ve got brewing.
Let me know what is on YOUR weekend agenda! Have a great one, guys!
