5 things: a cozy weekend

January 23, 2012

 // one. My Hunter Rainboots: they were ready to go(!!!)... but the rain barely made an appearance (sad face) //

sometimes you need a nice mellow weekend in! to catch up on all those little things that fall to the wasteside during the week AND to just relax! so the fireman and i spend some quality time in our new home... we cooked, got organized, and drank WAY too much coffee in the process!! we recently bought an espresso maker {which sounds fabulous, right?} but is actually very dangerous for two COFFEE LOVERS. every time we'd finish a cup... we'd look at each other like, of course we should make some more! ummmmmmm, that stuff is good! so here are five things that made up our cozy weekend in!

*if you'd like to check out more "5 things" go to the left index under "the goodies" / "five things", xo! 

{two. My Erin Condren Plannerthis organizer is MY LIFE on paper. it keeps my brain in order and i never go a day without writing in it! i keep it by my bed incase i can't sleep and need to write an idea or thought down. i have a busy week ahead of me... so this bad-boy helped me get organized! oh, and FYI (my favorite part about this planner is) you can customize your planners cover with a photo & verbiage that represent YOU. i adore peonies... as you can tell.}

{three: Sunday Breakfast, Healthy Huevos Rancheros:  there is nothing better then a big healthy yummy breakfast to start your weekend mornings off right! i love Huevos Rancheros, but sometimes feel a little too full after eating them... so i like to make a healthier version at home. 
*ingredients: flour tortilla, black beans, Spanish rice, bell peppers, red onion, kale, fajita seasoning, cherry tomatoes, salsa, avocado, & eggs! yum yum YUM.} 

{four: Walking with my Honey: since the fireman and i moved we've been going on walks around town & down to the beach. this weekend the waves were amazing & the clouds were stunning.}

 {five: The newest addition to our world! An Espresso Maker! (aka. The DANGER ZONE): we may need a coffee intervention at our house ANY day now. what can i say, we like coffee... and now that we can make it any time (with crazy bedhead & in our undies) we are drinking A LOT of espresso these days!!! yup, that's right... undies.}


well, how was your weekend!? cozy & in or crazy & out???

Thanks for your sweet comment, Vanessa! I'm your newest follower! :)

I must say, I just do not know what I would do without my Hunters. I live in Boston, and we get a lot of snow & rain!

Also, I'm a fellow coffee addict. Your espresso make looks amazing [ but VERY dangerous! ]. I love that pretty cup in the picture!

Have a lovely Monday!

We mostly stayed in as well, the rain has been crazy and gross lately, even by northwest standards. It wasn't really worth going out in it.

Mmmm I am also an avid coffee drinker, and espresso machine is a dream of mine but would be so dangerous to have around!

Yay! Yay for a cozy weekend, an adorable planner (I've been using my iCal for the last couple of years but just recently I've been thinking I might need the tangible paper planner again...too busy), yummy brekkie at home and gorgeous clouds to remind us that life is bigger than what we see. Oh and, the best yay to finally having your own espresso maker...addiction in progress.

our life seriously changed after we get a Nespresso machine. My FAVORITE thing to do is to wake up on the weekend and sleepily make me and the husband a cappucino. Then I bring it to him in bed and we snuggle and read - and of course our pup, Henry, is there which makes it literally the happiest place on earth :)
