Friday Best - 5.11

May 11, 2018

It's Friday and this week has been so good & so sunny. I love the weather in May.
This week has been a productive one at work and home. Additionally, I've made time for lots of outdoor walks, officially joined Orange Theory & attended a class, and made sure to meal prep for the week. This weekend is going to be pretty busy but full of fun. I'll be attending a family shower tonight for Natalie, walking with friends on Saturday & getting in some gardening at the farm, then pampering our mommas and spending time with family on Sunday. More bests from the week include trails, coffee shops & freebies--

best coffee shop view
Popped over to COMA coffee on lunch this week to work on a few things. Loved my honey lavender latte!

best resource
this is a great site for free concerts around STL. Lots of reoccurring outdoor events worth checking out. I'd like to try this O'Fallon event if I can make it - Breakdown Shakedown is the band we almost booked for our wedding until their prices increased.

best trail
there is a great rivers greenway trail I can walk to from my house & I love the trail system + views. I always see deer on my walks! I've made time to walk there three times this week & it's one thing I'll definitely miss when I move - I mean that creek + bridge view above - the best!

best mimosa bar 
love all the recipes and details in this mimosa bar - would be great for Mother's Day if any of you are hosting

best mantra
blessed to be busy 
This week I definitely needed a mindset adjustment mid-week. I was feeling the weight of allll the to-do's for allll of the things and let myself get way overwhelmed. I have a lot on my plate int his season, but it's jam-packed with blessings and I'm putting the work in to get where I want to be. Soon some dust will settle.

  1. So many cute things from Kohl's! I need to find that coffee shop...and try that drink. Sounds delicious. Enjoy your weekend!

    1. I know! I need to up my Spring/Summer wardrobe. The drink is a definite win - give it a whirl!

  2. "Blessed to be busy" UGH yes. So true. I need to be saying that this month and next when every weekend is booked up with stuff, but it's suuuuch good stuff, so blessings, blessings, blessings.

    1. Yes, it's so true! I keep telling myself that in this season. So busy on top of the normal grind - but it's all such exciting, positive stuff. #AllTheBlessings
