Starbucks unsweetened green tea lemonade with light ice – this stuff is my jam... I don’t know why I ever drank anything else! I fully plan to binge on these until I get sick of them. 

This Bobbi Brown bronzer... the color is amazing and it legit lasts forever!

Cold Tangerines – after hearing so much about Cold Tangerines, I finally bought the book on my iPad, and I am looking forward to starting it – have you read it yet?!

Downton Abbey – I feel like it has been a bit slow this season, but I swear, nothing can make me not love this show.

A fresh coat of nail polish... bad!!

Spin classes – My friend Jennifer and I have come up with a plan to try as many spin studios and gyms as we can for free by taking advantage of the first timer promotions!

To get ahead on blogging... I am in a “publish at 11pm the night before” rut, and need some post planning tips, please!

John being done with his Arizona bar exam... three bar exams is enough for me (and especially, him!!).

Anything spiralized... I’m obsessed!

DIYs galore... my DIY list is overflowing with so many ideas – if only there was one more day in a week! 

Everything that I can to get to bed at a decent time (it shouldn’t be so hard, but it really is!). 

How to shoot in manual with my DSLR... I feel like I had a good grip on it, then all of a sudden I forgot everything, got really frustrated, and went back to my phone for photos, ack! 

I could give my friend Elizabeth a big ‘ole hug to congratulate her on her engagement (...and if you remember from this post, I’m not a huge hugger... so this is a pretty big deal!).

A vacation! Anywhere with the ocean will do... I am trying to convince John on Rocky Point, Mexico, since it is so close, but he isn’t convinced - we will see!

Our cable provider, Cox.  Y’all, you think Comcast is bad?  Try Cox. We just cancelled our cable completely... I’d rather have no cable than cable that never works.

What are you currently up to?!


  1. Ugh I wish I had that green tea lemonade right now! I think I need to stop by Starbucks tomorrow! And I need to paint my nails too... but Im hoping i can hold out until the weekend. And I need to plot a vacation!

  2. I need to get a spiralizer, all I keep hearing are amazing things! And YES to Downton Abbey, finally caught up on this week's episode last night and could not love that show more!

    Sounds like I need to try out this green tea lemonade, I'm sure I'll be hooked as well :)

  3. ugh i hated comcast :( we use hulu, and netflix now instead of cable and it works for us! random...was there an episode of downton on last sunday?! i totally forgot about it bc of the superbowl. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  4. I haven't been to a spin class in a few weeks and I'm totally missing it!! Your DIYs are always great so I can't wait to see what else you're coming up with!! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  5. Um I totally admire you for spin class! And I'm with you on Downton. Im a fan for life :)

  6. A vacation right about now would be perfect, wouldn’t it?! I've heard all good things about Downton, I need to check that out!

  7. Love this, I haven't had a chance to dive into this season of Downton yet, but I can't wait. I am with you on the blogging, no matter what I do I can't get ahead and am always day to day! I desperately need to learn my dslr, I keep saying someday. Good luck with working on John, I hope you get the vacation you want!

  8. I love those green tea lemonades in the summer time. Looking forward to seeing your DIY projects, and I fully support your plot of going on a vacation haha. :-)

  9. Oh man, we had Cox in Rhode Island and they were the WORST!! Now we have this thing called WOW and honestly, it's somehow even worse... I feel like I have a Dish with how the cable goes out when it's windy! I hope you'll share some of the DIYs you're working on with us soon :) I'd also love if you can share some tips for shooting in manual!

  10. I've always thought Comcast was the worst so I feel for you on Cox, it must be really bad!! I was SO excited when we moved to Kalamazoo and I realized we could have AT&T UVerse, ha! And now I'm craving a peach green tea lemonade - how much longer til those come back?!?

  11. We used to use Cox, hated them too. We like Uverse. I LOVE the unsweet green tea lemonades and the unsweet passion shaken iced tea lemonades, YUM! I drink them all the time when it's warmer out. I actually buy & brew the Tazo green and passion teas at home too, mixing them in pitchers with lemonade. Tastes identical.

  12. Do you like that book, Cold Tangerines? I have heard a lot about the author and have been thinking about checking it out. What about it do you really enjoy?
    Have a great week:)

  13. They are putting in a soul cycle right by me!

  14. I am spiralizing everything too! #obsessed

  15. I love these type of posts. I'm obsessed with getting a spiralizer; you're recipes look so yummy! I just have to find where to buy one. Thanks to wedding planning I have a huge DIY list as well, but plenty of time to get it done with; and I'm definitely excited to do it all. I'll have to try out that Starbucks drink now!

  16. I just bought cold tangerines! I am reading two other books right now but I can't wait to finish them so I can get started!

  17. That book sounds interesting - I'll have to pick that up! And I haven't tried that Starbucks drink but it sounds delicious!

  18. I have a Starbucks in my building and I get an unsweetened iced green tea every day - obsessed! Cold Tangerines is one of my favorite books ever! I love all of Shauna's books and highly recommend reading Bread and Wine and Bittersweet too! She has a devotional coming out in March - you can pre-order on Amazon!

  19. Agree on Downton Abbey this season! Can't wait to see all your new DIYs!!

  20. OK - I used to be so addicted to peach green tea lemonade - I thought the lemonade was gone for the season!!! Maybe its just the peach flavoring. I'm going there today!!!

  21. A green tea sounds so good right about now. Burned out on a day of coffee and Diet Coke! Go you for the spin classes and congrats to your pretty friend ;)

  22. Lolol at the free membership trials! Want to know a secret? I use to do that for tanning memberships in college. Lol
    I'm totally with you on Downton. Honestly, I don't even understand what they are saying half the time but I can't stop watching it!!
    I went through the same thing with my DSLR, then I feel like I came back up and had an even better understanding. I can't remember what made it all "click" (bahaha accidental pun intended ;) )

  23. Green tea lemonade? That sounds fabulous and refreshiong!!! I just got my spiralizer this week and can see what all the hype is about! I love it!!!

  24. I'm def going to have to try the green tea lemonade. You're not the first person I hear that is hooked on it! plus im trying to drink less coffee because I feel like it's totally drying out my skin.

    I've never tried anything bobbi brown but my sister in law loves it!

  25. The Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade is my summertime go-to. It's so refreshing!

    There should be a DIY Day in which you're allowed to skip work if you're going to be artsy/crafty all day. Like...once a month.

  26. what on earth is Light Ice?? I've never heard of it!

  27. I love the Bobbi Brown bronzer! It's one of my favorites :) And love the plot of free spin classes! Genius!
