Hello, Friends! How is in the world is it almost March? My mind is blown by how quickly time truly goes. It's such a reality that time does fly and we should embrace each second of the day with lots of  positivity, love, and for me, lots of patience. ;)

What I'm Eating This Week...
Coffee cake and green tea are my go to breakfast of choice these days. Comfort food for days. Oh and adult coloring books have to be one of the greatest inventions of all time. Are you hooked, too? 

What I am not eating this week are these sweet potato fries. It started off with great intentions, I promise, but the broil setting got the best of our dinner Friday night. Buffalo Wild Wings take out for the win. 

What I'm Reminiscing About
Being in Bay View, Michigan with this man. His family has a lake cottage and have been going there on vacations for as long as anyone can remember. We even got engaged there. Such a special place for us. 

I have been pondering going back to school lately so I have been doing a lot of reminiscing about my time spent at Purdue and graduation. 

What I'm Loving

1+ If I had that pizza maker I would be eating pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 
2+ Homemade lattes are such a fun touch to my morning routine.
3+ Anything Nate Berkus is welcome in my home, especially this rug I am swooning over.
4+ Including this side table. It's like Nate just knows exactly what my home needs. Can't wait to get this baby in the mail later this week and make my living room it's new home! 
5+ The PERFECT spring jacket. I am obsessed with Army green and I can't wait to pair this with a light pink pursue and scarf for chilly spring days. 

What We've Been Up To
We are keeping our weekly Taco Johns lunch dates as classy as ever with way too much Mountain Dew, tons of uncontrollable flyways (my poor neglected hair!), and an average of 5 tacos each. These are some of my favorite days in this season of our life and I want to remember them forever. 

Our sweet Bentley graduated from his Puppy Training Class on Sunday. Poor thing looks terrified. I think he is still having nightmares about this graduation cap I forced him to wear. I sure do love these two boys an awful lot, though. 

What I'm Dreading
Going to the dentist. I don't know why it intimidates me, but it certainly does. 

What I'm working on
Decorating for Easter and using these three pictures as my inspiration. There is just something about pastels and fresh flowers that make my heart pitter patter a bit faster. Hopefully pulling out the spring decor will bring the warm weather here to stay.

What I'm Excited About
WARM WEATHER!!!! This weekend we were able to sit on the balcony and play a little Boggle, Rummy, and Scrabble and it was glorious. Summer days are in the future friends and I could not be more ecstatic. I am definitely a warm weather gal, so days like these makes my heart happy.

What I'm Watching/Reading
Shark Tank! Am I the only one obsessed with this show? Once I hear the first sales pitch I am instantly sucked in. 

Why I am addicted to this show, I don't know? It isn't my normal TV show type,  but I can't deny the fact that I binged watched the entire first 2 seasons on Netflix when I was home sick with a sinus and double ear infection a few weeks ago. Something about it is so catchy. 

What I'm Listening To...
Holy Spirit by Francesca Battistelli is on repeat over here. This song continues to energize and encourage me. 

What I'm Wearing..
Fighting off the cold temperatures with my favorite puffer vest from Old Navy. The weather has been so inconsistent here lately, so adding layers has been a huge necessity. 

Cardigans and leopard flats are one of my favorite winter combinations. Love adding a pop of color to my outfit using fun accessories. It adds more visual interest to such simple pieces. 

I could stay in this oversized sweatshirt all day long, well as long as I had a Starbucks latte in hand ;)

Check out this outfit here. It is perfect for Saturday morning walks with my sweet B-Man. Aside from pajamas, workout attire is the only thing I sport on the weekends. Love how the ruffles add a little feminine touch to a sporty outfit. 

Love this little pup so much!! 

What I'm Doing This Weekend
RELAXING!! And enjoying some much needed time with my hubby and pup. We have been on the go a lot lately and David has been traveling for work a ton, so this weekend we are going to embrace our time together. 

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month 
I am so excited to see my sister and the rest of my family the first weekend in March. I haven't seen them since Christmas so we have lots of catching up to do. There are already a lot of fun things on the agenda! Just can't wait to see some of my favorite humans.
