friday's thoughts

Happy freaking Friday!

I love the feeling of waking up on Friday…I always jump out of bed with an extra pep in my step.

This week was a bit of a free for all. Some good bits, some bad bits, all thrown in with the chaos of work.
Here were a few of the outfits I wore.

What do you think of the stripes and polka dots? Crazzy right?

We don’t have too much on the board for this weekend. Joel is running another half marathon tomorrow. It’s at 10am, so I’ll pick up some Starbucks and wait for him in the warming tent. The nice thing about being in the audience is that its incredibly motivating. Watching all different shapes and sizes cross the finish line makes you feel like YOU should be out there. And, I guess on April 1st, I will be.

After Joel dominates, we are going to head to my parents house in Crystal Lake. We haven’t seen them since Mexico and I need a little fill. Especially of my cute pup.

We’ll probably have dinner, drink some wine, get in a walk, and head back into the city early afternoon on Sunday. Just in time to hit the grocery store and cook a yummy dinner.

I’ve been really slacking on the domestic housegirlfriend role of having a healthy dinner on the table for dinner.

Next week I’m aiming to put something good on the table 3 nights….which means I’m off to Pintrest.

Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. Love the 1st and 3rd outfits Tess!

    And I am right there with ya on eating better and cooking in general. I was a bad wife myself this week. haha

  2. Sounds like a perfectly relaxing weekend. Enjoy it! And yes I love the striped and polka dots; I've got to try that :-)

  3. When I looked at that beige and black outfit I thought you were wearing a black tube top. haha That would be a bold choice for work. Again, I'm so out of it today : ) xo!

  4. Love the stripes and polka dots!

  5. LOVE the blue striped tunic! I think pairing it with the polka dot scarf was a great idea! Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. I like the stripes and dots! That dress is very cute!

  7. LOOOVE the stripes and dots! I eyed that dress at J. Crew for so long hoping it'd go on sale--jealous you snagged it!

  8. Love your mix of traditional and modern elements for your dream home ~ and the color pallete is very soothing which I love :)

    Good luck with the healthy dinners; think smarter vs. work harder! ;-)
