Tulips at the market
Happy Friday, friends! All of the tulips, daffodils, and crocuses popping up in the markets and yards make me feel like spring is finally here! Just last week I was scraping ice off my car, yet next week’s forecast is in the 70s. Such a crazy time of year! Some fun inspiration in honor of the season of renewal:
- New hair
- New wall decor
- New lip color – electric violet
- New cupcake recipe to try
- New spring flats (in pink) and tennies – not sure why but I’m obsessed with these right now. Are Chuck Taylors back in? Were they ever out? I haven’t worn them since college – am I too old? So many questions….feel free to weigh in with any answers in the comments!
And then, some not-necessarily-springy highlights from my (last few) week(s). Have a wonderful weekend!
Delicious meal at Grassa in Portland (don’t worry, this was just the first course).
Bundt cakes (lemon poppyseed and rum) for my dear friends’ wedding last weekend – in lieu of having a traditional wedding cake, the bride asked about twenty of her girlfriends to make their favorite bundt cakes. Tragically, my cakes and I ended up missing the wedding due to a terribly-timed bout with the norovirus, but all reports said the bundt cake table was a hit!
Champagne cocktails at Tallulah’s in Capitol Hill – so hip.
My new baby nephew’s first stationary from my new Etsy fave. I’m going to try really hard not to overwhelm this blog with pics of all the baby things I can’t seem to stop buying, but I thought these were extra cute! And what unborn baby doesn’t need personalized thank you notes?
