Happy Sunday, friends! I’m starting to learn that every week in 2020 is at least a little overwhelming… I think it’s a given now, right?! In addition to news headlines, I’ve also been a little preoccupied because we found a home that we love but the seller wasn’t ready for offers yet ? We’re trying to maintain the “what’s meant to be will be” approach since we’re still at the beginning of our search – but man, real estate is a crazy industry!
On a calmer note, we went out to the burbs to hang out with my family on Friday since my brother was in town for the weekend. It was so nice to get quality time with everyone – and it made me SO grateful that my family is being respectful of everyone’s comfort levels regarding COVID. Since my brother flew in, and Adam & I have seen some friends recently (pretty much only outdoors, but still), we do our best to distance outside – and if we get close to each other, we put a mask on.
I have gotten SO upset about the anti-mask rhetoric and propaganda recently, and it really warms my heart that it’s a non issue with my family. Sure it’s not ideal, but if a piece of cloth means I can hug my parents without worry and hold my sweet baby niece, why wouldn’t I do that to protect them? I just truly do not understand the other side ??♀️ Oof.
Sunday Spotlights 8
Jacey Duprie’s kitchen is so dreamy. I love the green cabinets!!
I got SO MANY mixed messages when I asked about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yesterday ? I completely understand why you wouldn’t shop it this year – I don’t even know how much I’ll give in! But some people could use some fresh lounge clothes or workout wear or even blouses/sweaters for their work zoom calls. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to get those things at a discount!
Have you guys read this article yet? It is infuriating but important.
My favorite shoulder bag is on sale – and you can get an additional 30% off the sale price this weekend!
I took this Seasons of Love Peloton class this week and it was THE MOST FUN. If you love RENT, then you’ll LOVE this ride! (PS. Did you know I always share the links to my workouts every week in my Sunday email blast? You can subscribe here!)
John Lewis wrote an essay shortly before he died. I highly recommend that everyone read it if you haven’t already.
These breakfast tacos were next level amazing.

I started re-watching Playing House on Hulu because I only ever watching the first season when it was on TV. It’s even funnier than I remember!
Person, Man, Woman, Camera, TV x Cell Block Tango. Whoever made this is a comedic GENIUS.
Love this episode of Armchair Expert with John Legend. What a dreamboat.
