Friday!

Happy Friday! I feel crazy because this weekend is the last we have to get our house ready for a steady stream of visitors starting this Monday and running through until late July. Also, this is the last weekend before temps in Portland skyrocket to almost 100 next week. WHAT!? So much to do. Aaaaand next Friday is my birthday and I still don’t have anything special planned. It’s crazy how we push those things to the side more and more as we get older. I’d like to change that proclivity — even just a little bit. I hope you’re planning fun for yourself this weekend and the weeks ahead! xo Jen

Happy Friday! I hope you have some nice things planned. If you follow me on instagram, you know that I’ve become a crazy rose-obsessed lady who is always wandering around her garden (Sorry for so many garden pics — it’s my happy place right now!) and I plan to do more of that puttering this weekend with some garden herb-infused limeade in hand. I’m also thinking about bringing out the ice cream maker and making some herb-infused ice cream. Any favorite ice cream recipes are much appreciated! Have a fun weekend! xo Jen

HAPPY FRIDAY! We’re going to be experiencing a heatwave this weekend here in Portland, so our main plan is trying to stay cool and creating an elaborate system of fans since we have no air conditioning in our house. Our BLACK house. I anticipate a lot of time sipping cold brew and spritzers in the backyard while finally getting a chance to catch up on some magazines. Stay cool out there wherever you are and have a wonderful weekend! xo Jen

Happy Friday, friends! What are you up to this weekend? I’m looking forward to a lunch date today with Teresa and her wee babe, a yummy brunch with friends, a little baking, iced tea sipping, staring at my roses some more and major backyard sessions to try to get it to a relaxing lounge-y state. I’m also planting a bunch of herbs that I got at Portland Nursery — I’ve always wanted a little herb garden. Also, I’m SO EXCITED that our amazing farm share is starting back up (NW peeps — there’s a discount from our farm below!), so I’m looking through books for good, healthy summer recipes. Have a lovely weekend! xo Jen

HAPPY FRIDAY! I hope you have some lovely days ahead this weekend. Today I will be having a day of shopping and eating mediocre Mexican food in the suburbs with my girls, Megan and Teresa, and I’m SO looking forward to it. This weekend is all about getting organized and set up for family coming next week and to make things extra fun — our car is in the shop. I also need to tackle the basement. For real this time. I procrastinated last week to the point of not doing anything I wanted to get done down there, so now I have to pay the piper when I really just want to putz in the garden and read. Have a wonderful time out there! I hope you get distracted by flowers and neglect your own chores in favor of relaxing! xo Jen
