happy things to end the week with.

Alyssa in Australia // Micaela in Texas
♥ have i mentioned how i have the best blog readers turned life long friends? Alyssa is the Ginger Spice to my Sporty Spice. She truly is a gem and never fails to make me laugh. Or make my day with a surprise-- case and point: she bought us matching Kate Spade bangles "just because." To remind us to take heart.  Alyssa, i love your heart. xoxo

♥ i've taken to reading in a tub full of bubbles to unwind from the day. Now that it's become chilly (thank-you Autumn!) it's also a nice way to start the day... with a cup of coffee rather than my usual glass of wine at night. I love reading memoirs and was excited to find Mia Farrow's on my last used book shop run ($2 for a hardback? yes!). I'm a huge fan of Woody Allen films but what he did was horrible. I'm curious to read about it in her own words. do you like reading biographies?

♥ i met my vintage soul sister through my gf jessie's etsy swap. Amanda is also a really talented sewing goddess and had a genius idea to make cute re-usable snack bags. Since my husband works weekends, i decided to custom order one for when i pack his sandwiches:
saucy and i love the way it turned out! amanda was sweet to include the extra little pouch as a gift, because she's sweet like that. In fact... 

use coupon code: FRIEND2FRIEND in her shop and get 20% off! 

mommas, how cute would a snack bag be with your child's name on it? especially for the school year. thank-you Amanda!!! 

and a song to kick off your weekend... Coldplay's new single "Paradise" to celebrate how i can't wait for their new CD!

Happy Friday Lovies!!! what happy things are you ending the week with?

+please leave a link below if you do post-- i'd love to share in your happiness xo

I love alyssa and you, so i'm extra excited because I have something Kate spade from you both too so we're almost matching :D

While I can't really comment on all of the accessories, I will say that a happy thing I'm ending my week with is RAIN. It's a cool, gray, rainy day outside and even though I'm working, nothing is better than a rainy day.

And guilty pleasure time: in the time of the changing from summer to fall, I will indulge in the occasional warm bath to relax. Stressful days require lots of destressing time.

Yeah!! What a great way to end the week :). Thanks for sharing the snack bags. I am ending the week by going to my favorite thrifty spot ... crossing my fingers I score some cool things.

Yes, those snack bags are adorable. :) As is that Kate Spade bangle--love it! Take Heart is such a perfect phrase to carry around on your wrist. But maybe I should get one that says "Don't Take Too Much Heart," hahaha!

Bubble baths are my fave; seems like I've had less time for simple indulgences lately between 2 jobs and running back and forth to the wine country. But this weekend I will make time for both exercise and a bubble bath!! (I still take baths every single day, but they haven't been as lingering as I'd like).

Aw, how sweet of Alyssa! We're partners for Gracie's 'About Me' swap and I can't wait to receive her journal :)

Love those reusable snack bags!

The Pieces said...

Ahhhh, I had better start having baths before it gets too hot here! Those lil lunch bags look adorable, will check them out :)

Erin {pughs' news} said...

I'm ending the week with a lovely little parcel in the mail from you! Just what I needed after the exhausting week I've had. Am planning a "me date" for tomorrow night, to relax and indulge and do nothing but take a bath, put on a soothing face mask, and read a good book. Might have to pop by the liquor store tomorrow for a bottle of wine, too!

Thanks, M! Love, E.

PS: J'adore the magnets!

Gracie said...

Ahhh those matching bracelets are just adorable. I may need to do something similar (it's almost like a modern day best friend necklace. Do you remember those? - These might be a post idea haha).

I love your happy list posts. They are always full of goodness. And I love to do them each week too (you should make a button since I took the idea from you and I know a lot of people do it too). x

Cassie said...

Those snack bags are gorgeous. I am ending this week on the happiness of Autumn rain fall - so fresh and welcome. Have a great weekend Micaela

Amanda said...

Oh, you've inspired me to have a bubbly reading session! I'm a big lover of biographies and memoirs! After historical nonfiction, it's my fave genre to read :)

ana said...

Lauryn said...
