Looks & Life Lately {16}

I've been terrible about tracking our whereabouts lately (the whole point of this space is to remember the little things) so I'll definitely try to be better about that as we head into one of the best seasons... only four more days until it's officially spring.

With both of us being in and out of town on the weekends recently we grabbed a date night the night before I headed out to Florida a couple weeks back.  We were also awaiting our (hopefully) final snow of the season - which ended up being a dusting.


A white wine called layer cake?  Now that is my kind of drink - combining two of my favorite things right there.  It wasn't my favorite wine but I think I'd definitely test it out again.


These two lounging together... 


I've only flipped through it so far but I'm excited to actually sit down and read Chrissy Teigen's new cookbook. {pineapple shaker}


Last week we had the best unseasonably warm weather - almost to 80 degrees! I can't say the same for this week but I was certainly enjoying it while it lasted. {Dress: short sleeve version / necklace: here / sandals: here}


Girlfriend is Eater ready and we're already down one Easter toy.  Stuffing and all.


One night the whole family was over for dinner and we went up to my office to look at something new which led to about a half hour up there.  I didn't mind my favorite people in my favorite space.


Enjoying some margaritas (my favorite margarita, actually!), with my brother awaiting my favorite Mexican meal.


Have I mentioned that we love happy hours?  Friends or family or just the two of us.  On tonight's menu?  Homemade chicken dip, hummus, a black bean salsa and a cheese spread.  Of course white wine too.


I spent one of the nights Derek was away over at my parents house and had the best time being home.  I also love going on the walking trails that run right by the house - Stella got filthy on this walk though and took about 20 minutes to be cleaned off.  Dirt caked on her EVERYWHERE!


During a work out inspired post a few weeks ago, many of you asked for a review when I said I was ordering this desk elliptical.  So far I've only been using it to burn a couple extra calories each day - not as my main workout and I really like it.  It's the perfect thing to use while watching TV instead of just sitting there. 


Linking up with Jenn & Jessi for "What's Hap-pinning Wednesday"

  3. I still really love your office :) And I'm curious to know what you think about Chrissy Teigen's cookbook. I follow her on Instagram so I've seen her share snapshots of the inside (which looks like a fashion mag) but I wonder how easy the recipes would be. Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

  16. A margarita is my drink of choice and seeing how this day has already started, I kinda want one now. I realize saying that at 9 AM isn't always acceptable but it is what it is! I really want Chrissy Teigen's cookbook. -Leah Chasing Texas

  17. Stella looks so cute and happy in the sink for her bath! Finn would be trying to make his great escape the whole time, lol. The weather needs to make up its mind pretty soon - I want to bust out the dresses and sandals!

  22. I am so needing a night at home, there is just something about staying at your parents that can rejuvenate you (minus the husband, because sharing a full size bed with him is awful)

  23. So glad to hear that you like the elliptical! I still have some Amazon gift cards from Christmas and I've been thinking about going for it!

  24. I always love spending time at my parents house when Chris is out of town. It always feels so good to be back! I seriously don't think that anything beats a margarita and Mexican food! We haven't been out for Mexican in a while, and I think that needs to change!

  25. "Oh just laying on the floor hanging out in the wife's office". Your office is so adorable and you're so lucky you can work from home!

  26. I haven't made anything from Chrissy's cookbook yet, but I was laughing out loud reading through it- I can't wait to try a few things out. I looove sauvignon blanc and almost picked up that wine from the grocery store a couple of weeks ago, but decided against it at the last minute. Love your office space!

  28. I love the desk in your office. Where's it from?? The pink walls are too cute. Love the gold touches! Can't wait to have a place of my own so I can do this ;)
