The Highlights

Memorial Day weekend and this week have flown by.  We've been busy and had a lot of fun.  
The best parts of my week were...

1. I hit the KIMONO JACKPOT at JC Penney this week!!  They had TONS to pick from and so many different patterns/styles.  Most I saw are not on-line so head to your local JCP and try some on.  The sizing is always strange.  I ended up buying S, M and XL so ignore the tags and try them on.  I've worn the tribal print one the most, but I love them all.  Each one was around between $15-$22 on sale.

2. We've done fun birthday things all week long for Olive.  Her real birthday is TODAY and I cannot believe she's already TWO.  How did that happen?  She's had a busy little life so far - lived in three different states, traveled many places, kept us on our toes and been such a sweet little girl.  We are doing a low key Some Bunny is Turning Two party tonight for her after her family parties last weekend.

3. I had so much fun planning all the bunny things for Olive's 2nd birthday.  
I'm going to do a recap of everything next week but here's a sneak peek.

4. My favorite lunch of the week has been avocado toast.
I fry an egg, toast the bread, top with 1/2 an avocado
and sprinkle S&P and bacon bits on top.
How do you eat avocado toast??

5. I've been talking a lot about our upcoming move to Indiana.  We've got our house on the market, are working on making some plans to move and reserving all the necessary things.  It's a lot to process, but we've moved every year for the last three years so I think we're getting pretty good at it.  Do you have any moving or garage sale tips for me??


  1. I smash those green goddesse up with a fork, add sat and pepper and lime juice mix together and spread on whole grain breat with a sliced up hard boiled eggs. Delicious

  2. I go to garage sales to find items for my flea market booth. When I'm looking for a good sale I look for good signage! Make sure you put up clear, easy to read signs. Also consider posting an ad on Craigslist or a local Facebook "buy, sell, trade" type of group.

  3. What a cute birthday party and that avacado toast looks so yummy.

  4. That toast looks so amazing! The cupcakes are adorable.

  5. Oh my gosh the birthday favors are absolutely adorable! I love the theme two! Happy Birthday to your little one!

  6. Ummm yeah I think I need one of those JCP kimonos! I love the ones you found! Can't wait to see how you style them, if you decide to share that on here. :)

    Avocado toast is one of my favorite breakfasts or lunches - although I leave off the egg. I mash the avocado and mix it with a little lemon juice and a tiny spoon of salsa.

    Hope you're having a great weekend!

  7. What an adorable party!! :)

    I loooove kimonos and one of my favorites is actually from JCP too! Yours are SO pretty!

    xo Always, Abby

  8. Love those kimonos! Super Happy belated birthday to Olive! As for yard sale tips, I came across some pinterest pins on them...

  9. The kimonos are really cute! What a score! I love the tribal print one best too, but really love the rickrack trim on the third. And now I know where to go on my next mall trip! I hope Olive's birthday party went well. It's just the cutest theme! I especially love all of your details. I may have to steal this theme ;) I didn't realize you've moved so much, but this should be your last move for a while! Hope you all had a great weekend!
