Friday Favorites

It is finally Friday! With that, it is the first ‘full work week’ I have put in for three weeks, so I am more than ready to say hello to the weekend and enjoy some time off! We really have no plans for the weekend, which is fine by me. Things always seem to pop up, but sometimes going into a weekend knowing that you aren’t obligated to anything is so refreshing and much needed! And after last night, where my ten month old was up as much as a newborn baby, I desperately need some down time. If that time happens to be alone without a baby for a few hours,  I won’t argue..this nightmare of a sleep cycle is just about to break this mama.
I will say, I have been digging a lot of new things lately, and can’t wait to share.

1. Tall Clothing
Any other 6 foot ladies out there!? If so, I know you can 100% relate to the struggle to find clothing that fits.The struggle is real. I feel like I have literally grown up with the internet, and am so thankful for the abundance of options it provides. Long gone are the days of only being able to find a pair of jeans long enough at the Buckle. And, online ‘tall shops’ mean that not only are pants long enough, but so are skirts, dresses, and even the sleeves on shirts. I cannot say enough how much it warms my heart to buy a tall shirt and actually have the sleeves make it down to my wrists. It’s the little things.

2. Christmas Crafts
I know, I know. It’s June. And that means the holiday season is still 6 months away, but it also means the holiday season is only 6 months away!! I have already ordered some supplies and am plotting gifts I will be making. DIY makes my heart happy. I can’t wait to share what I end up making!

3. Wedge Sandals
Yet another tall girl problem is typically finding cute shoes that don’t make you tower over every man in the room. I ordered these from dsw and am so excited to get them. I have been lookig and looking for some wedges, but for good reason I have a hard time with your standard 3-4 inch heel.And the are less than 2 inches. Tall girls say what!?

4. Rhubarb
Is there anything better than all of the new fruits that come into play during the summer!? Berries are sooo cheap after the grocery stores after a winter of high prices and poor quality, and we have strawberries in our house on the regular. And does anything go better with strawberries than rhubarb!? I think not. I am so happy I have family and friends with rhubarb plants, I have some chopped and prepped and can’t wait to try out this recipe this weekend.

5. Work events
Ok, I just had my first work event that required looking semi put together, mingling, and fed me appetizers and cocktails. I felt overwhelmed, but I also felt empowered. I am just so excited to have a job that I feel really is contributing to others and is also appreciated by others. And awesome new coworkers. It says a lot when two weeks in I can sit down to lunch with these ladies and not have a single awkward pause. I’m feeling super grateful for my new opportunity and can’t wait to see where it takes me.

I hope everyone has a great weekend, around here we will be enjoying our first sunny weekend in awhile and getting in some outside time! I am linking up with these ladies today!

    Ha, while your loving the tall clothes, I’m loving that a lot of websites are offering petite – I’m always having to get things hemmed. It’s never too soon to start Christmas prep!

    Lol – at 5'3" I am the opposite and am always swimming in pants! I am guilty of Christmas dreaming lately as well and may have spent late last night on Pinterest perusing all things holiday!! Rhubarb scares me as I've never cooked with it (or even eaten it) but I'm guessing it's going to make an appearance in our CSA box soon!
