Well I was supposed to post this on Tuesday but it's been a crazy week! I am still recovering from our super fun Farm Retreat and this week has been all kinds of nuts! I'm so glad it's Thursday and I'm thrilled that we have a three day weekend coming up. It's going to great!
Our sunroom is my favorite room in our new house. I just love it! So I wanted to show you that room first :) We eat most of our meals out in this room and I love sitting out here to read books. We haven't gotten new furniture for this room and honestly I doubt we will get any this year but in a few years I would love to get a new table and maybe an outdoor sectional or chairs for this space.
Here is a picture of the whole room. We have a table, my blanket bench for extra seating and a small buffet table that I use to hold food at parties.
My MIL gave us the table and chairs and they are quite comfortable which is good because were going to keep them for a while. I got the bromeliad in the spring and because our sunroom is nice and shady he's very happy living on our table :)
This is the door that goes out to our garage. I got the boxwood wreath at Target years ago.
I had my girlfriends over for brunch a few weeks ago. They all loved sitting in my sunroom. I hope to have many more parties in our sunroom this summer!

Hello friends! Our craft class for this moth at Branch and Bloom was a Farm Retreat. We held it on Saturday at our friend Jen's farm. Jenn has a small hobby farm and she's a yoga teacher so we thought it would be fun to collaborate and have a Farm Retreat together.

So two weeks ago I went on a beach trip with some of my best friends. We went to Cape Cod for three days and had a great time talking, laughing, shopping and going to the beach.
Here is a picture of us from our trip. I love these girls so much! The weather was pretty terrible all weekend but we still had fun!
I knew we were going to be gone over Kentucky Derby weekend so I wanted to make something for my friends for the Kentucky Derby. I thought monogrammed mint julep glasses would be perfect! I ordered the mint julep glasses online and then I had my friend and neighbor Heidi monogram them for me. I love the way they turned out! I made mint juleps for everyone to drink while we watched the Kentucky Derby. They are not my favorite drink but these glasses are adorable and they are stainless steel so we will have them for many future Kentucky Derby parties.
For our trip she made navy and pink "GO SEA DO" bags because we were going to the beach. We put all of our other goodies for our friends inside the bags.
Here is a peek of the towels. She got pink and blue to go along with the bags.
Here are the finished bags ready to be given to our friends! This was so fun to do. I love making gifts for my friends when we go on trips! Last year my friend Sabrina and I made monogrammed beach bags for our friends for our Florida beach trip. You can see how we made them here.
I hope you have a great Wednesday! It is HOT here and I plan to spend as much time as possible outside today enjoying the beautiful sunshine!

Last week I had Bunco! It's always fun to get together with these ladies :)
I teach a cardio/weight lifting class on Monday mornings and Tuesday's at lunch. This is my group from last Tuesday. We are working on increasing our weights in class and these ladies have been working SO hard. I am so proud of them!
I am reading this book about Whole 30 and I decided to start Whole 30 today. My friend Rachael is doing it too and G pretty much eats Whole 30 all the time so I am hoping it won't be too difficult for me. I made this egg bake for breakfasts this week.

before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that”
― Rupi Kaur
to fill the empty parts of me
i want to be full on my own
i want to fill so complete
i could light a whole city
i want to have you
cause the two of
it on fire”
― Rupi Kaur
What have you been reading? I love getting book suggestions from people. There are SO many books that I want to read! I have some good ones lined up for May.

I just got back from the BEST weekend . I took a girls trip to Cape Cod. We have been planning it for months and it was a perfect weekend. I'm so glad we were able to get away and enjoy!
