Consumed

Hey friends! How is everyone's week going? I have to tell you I have been completely consumed by crossing things off my list in order to get ready for our trip. Here's a little fact about me- when I have something like this to look forward to, every other hobby or enjoyment takes a backseat- so I haven't been searching for a single new thing for my home, the house is dirty and we have been semi slack on cooking lately. A few weeks ago when our dear friends came in town all I did was think about getting the guest room ready and didn't think twice about clothes or prepping my closet for Spring. 
So, right now...this is all I can think about...


And this is what I feel like.

But I did want to be totally caught up before I leave, so here's a few photos of things lately.

{a new suit}

{tucker on his 4th birthday!}

{some pretty flowers from my mother-in-laws garden- called mock orange}

{successful try at making crab cakes! anyone else like them?}

{good thing I remembered my passport! Such a thrill for me to get it stamped, by the way}

{one of my pretty roses blooming, a gift from friends for our first anniversary}

{blurry but a good representation of our bed this week!}

 The reason I post these pictures is because I love seeing them on other blogs, I hope you don't mind! What have you been up to lately?

And for some great news, I have several amazing ladies who will be posting while I am on vacay, so make sure to check back for some really fun posts! I'm hoping this vacation will leave me refreshed + inspired. Y'all have a great rest of the week!! xoxo.

Such a cute suit! One of my favorite parts about traveling is getting my passport stamped- I love looking back through them!
