A few of our favorite things from the past week —
1. Fresh Tulips.
Nothing says spring like a bouquet of fresh tulips. We’ve been keeping at least one vase full of these in our homes since they came back in season. It’s amazing how they can just brighten the whole room up. Pike Place Market is one of the places to pick up fresh tulips, so it’s our list to stop by the market soon (and repeatedly.) We also are making it a priority to make it up to the Tulip Festival in Skagit Valley this year. – H & A
2. Big Little Lies.
Anyone else been following along with this new HBO show? I’ve been obsessed. It’s a suspenseful drama set in Southern California, telling the tangled stories of a few families in a small town. We know something bad has happened, but they’re really making us wait to find out what exactly. Also, with Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman as two of the main characters, you know it’s going to be good. – H
3. Overnight Oats.
Not sure about you guys, but breakfast during the work-week is tough to make. If it isn’t grab and go, I know it won’t happen. For a while, I was on a quiche kick and would make a few on Sunday and then eat them all week long. My newest favorite is overnight oats. The night before, just pop some oats into a mason jar, add some almond or coconut milk, chia seeds and a little sweetener (a lot of recipes will call for stevia, I prefer honey), top it with some blueberries in the morning and you’re ready to go! – A

4. Well + Good.
I used to read this site all the time, and just rediscovered how amazing it is. The site covers ‘your healthiest relationship’ and talks about everything from good food, to a good workout, looks and advice, and the content is just really high quality. Especially since we were really trying to eliminate sugar from our diet leading up to the cleanse, this was a perfect site for us to get some serious motivation. – A
5. Steve Madden Jaylen wedges.
Ok, these have been everywhere this season. But I just picked up a pair in cognac and I completely understand the hype. They’re super comfortable, and will match with just about anything. Get ready to see these many times on the blog over the next few months. – H
Have the best weekend,
