This WEEK!

Good mornin' all!
How was your weekend? 

I have a little bit more pep to my step this Monday morning! Why you ask?! It's here! It's here! It's here! This is going to be one amazing week. Guess what tomorrow is? Our 2 year wedding annniversary! Then we leave for Cali after that for a whole week! Fin - a - lly.

You know when you mentally 'check out' before a vacation? Well, I've hit that level (like yesterday) and am just ready to be at the airport with the hubs leaving on the plane. We are so beyond excited and have so much planned for every day and every city we are stopping in, that now I'm just anxious and ready to be there. 

*as a refresher if you missed any previous posts, our first stop is Lake Tahoe, then Napa, then San Francisco, then we are spending 2 days in Carmel. EEEEK!

Now that that's covered....here's a little bit about our weekend. We took it easy this weekend, but still managed to get a lot done and have some fun. We went out to dinner on Friday night (Billy's pick) and then on Saturday we went to Sweet Clove Sunshine Cafe as our favorite brunch tradition. Have I mentioned we eat out a lot on the weekends? I think you've realized that by now, right? ;) I've showed you guys a picture of our food before from here, so it won't come as much of a surprise to you when you see my french toast (pictured below). I swear, their french toast and pancakes are heavenly. If you live in Columbus (or ever visit here), do yourself a favor and go here!

After our food coma subsided, we ran a bunch of errands afterwards and then had a movie night with my best friend Lindsay and her boyfriend. My husband has a huge obsession for pina coladas so went to the store and picked up the things we needed to make some in the blender. They were so yummy! 

On Sunday, I went thrifting! It was really random and I only went to one place, but I couldn't believe the good deals! Mainly everything I bought was under $1.00, but most of it was only .59 cents! So in that case, of COURSE we needed sundae dishes. I mean, don't we? They are just so fun. On Sunday night to end the weekend, we got together with our friends Marissa and Mike for dinner and to hang out before we leave for our trip. 

Here's a few of my favorite pictures from the weekend...

Dear Sweet Clove,
thank you for another amazingly delicious meal.
If gift cards randomly showed up in our mailbox, it would feel like Christmas,
and we would probably eat you everyday if we could.

my thrift store finds...

and my favorite of all...
this milk glass vase! 

Here is Billy doing his own "OOTD" post. 
He called it "how to mix a workout shirt with Nike golf shorts"


my cute boys.

Oh, and I got my new Zara bib necklace in the mail!!
You can pair it with so much, but on Saturday I paired it with a casual white tshirt and shorts.

I have a great giveaway from Groop Dealz coming on Wednesday, so be on the lookout for that! I'm off to pack more Cali outfits and count down the hours....

I'm sure you have your trip planned and have already gotten a bazillion recommendations, so I won't bore you with that.... but I do have to express to you how much you must go to Sweetie Pie's in Napa -- It's the most adorable, sweet little restaurant with phenomenal homemade food, baked goods, etc. It's not just a meal... it's an experience at Sweetie Pie's and one of my most favorite places in Napa, outside of Artesa :)
