Just 5 Things

Irish Mules

First of all, major heart eyes for my parent's back yard. They've put so much blood, sweat, and tears into it this past month - and it's really paid off. Just in time for some cooler weather too! 

Ever since we went to Ireland last year, and visited the Jameson Distillery, I've been obsessed with this cocktail. They called it an Irish Mule, so that's what I've been saying. It's 1 part whiskey, 3 parts ginger beer, and lime. Easy, simple - but OH so good. 

Headphone Upgrade

Between listening to audiobooks everyday, needing a good running playlist, and enjoying the very long Marco Polos my besties send me - I have headphones on all the time. I'm almost embarrassed about how my old ones looked. It was a splurge, but I actually bought myself 2 pairs. One over the ear, and the other are earbuds. Soundcore has always been a really solid brand for us, so that's what I went with here. They are both sound cancelling, which I've never experienced! Such a cool technology. 

I'm also loving my Simplified planner! I did a full tour of this planner a few weeks ago, but it starts in September so I've officially been using it for over a month. It's been the perfect fit - I love it!

Erin Condren Notebook

These EC spiral notebooks are an all time favorite. I just finished up a notebook, and got really excited to pull out a blank one from my stash. They are just the best notebook. You can find several around my house at any given time, each with a different purpose. 

If you are new to Erin Condren, I have a $10 referral link! Now that I am using the last blank one, I know I need to stock up on the next sale. The cover selection is just so good, it's always hard to choose. 

Friend's 25th Anniversary

We attended my parent's BFF's anniversary party this weekend and I thought the cake topper was just SO perfect. A little hard to see in this picture, but it's silver for the 25th anniversary and says '25 years of adventure'. I loved the sentiment, especially for a couple that loves to travel.

Kidnapped Stuffies

I've had a lot of time with my nephews this past week! They stayed over Saturday night, and accidentally left their stuffed animals. (Meet Bear Bear and DJ- short for Dog Johnson) I took this cute photo with them to send to my sister and I just think it's so cute and funny. 

Bear Bear and DJ don't want to go home, so they'll just have to come back and stay again. 😊 Maybe this is just cute to me as their aunt, but oh well. I think other aunties out there get it.
