MIMM: Spring like weather : )

Hello hello, happy Monday!
How was your weekend? Anything exciting? This weekend felt “spring like” not exactly spring weather since there was still snow on the ground, but when it reached 50 degrees, it sure felt nice!
{As always, thanks Katie for making Monday a little extra special!}
Marvelous is:
Trying Starbucks’ new bakery line, Cassidy & I split the flourless warmed double chocolate cookie…. yum!
Marvelous is:
A trip to whole foods for some new finds + a juice { carrots, beets + apples }
Marvelous is:
Fresh lavender, ah.
Marvelous is:
A birthday gift from George… funky snake skin hunters!
Marvelous is:
A visit to Terran At Styers, a beautiful place with flowers, home stuff + a cute green house restaurant!
{ that lamb burger was phenoooom }

Ahh. Spring fever I think is in full force, anyone else?!
Have you tried starbucks’ new bakery line?

Have a great start to your week!

1. New nail color: “You don’t know Jacques” By OPI got this color on my toes on Wednesday while getting Pedi’s with Larissa. love this color for winter. it’s a great alternative to red!
OPI "You Don't Know Jacques" nail polish.  Love this color.

2. Speaking of Wednesday, while getting pedicures, we of course had to get coffee 🙂 I think I found my newest victim. Dirty Chai..
Chai tea latté with espresso! love the spice!

3. Oliver’s first birthday is right round the corner! How cute are these invites my sister sent out.

4.Cooking dinner together with my sister! We talk everyday, but sometimes its nice to be face to face + cook together. This time we made salmon with a sweet chili sauce. Yum!

5. This quote: Be with those who help your being ❤
Simple, but isn’t it the truth! You want to be surround by those who encourage you and want you to do well.

MIMM: First snow, red cups + coziness!

How about that for a title for todays post?

This weekend officially felt like Christmas time. Between the crowds at the mall, holiday décor, {our first snow!}, seasonal finds and drinks, plus a fire = the perfect way to welcome this cold but blessed time of year.

Friday George and I started some Christmas shopping fueled by starbies 🙂 I must say.. I did see something’s for myself .. >>  hello VS sports wear!, Saturday decorated some more & made dinner and Sunday was a study/snow day!

I cant say I love the winter.. I know I’m a valentines baby {well 15th!} but, winter hasn’t been my favorite. or maybe its jus the cold part, cause I love me some Christmas cookies, peppermint mochas + driving around looking at lights!

>> Here are some marvelous weekend pics! <<

Thanks Katie for creating such a fun way to start a Monday!<3
