The Weekender // No. 18

chicago-evanston-coffee-shopWell friends, another weekend is here, and I’m spending it trying to get over a cold which means lots of ginger tea and quiet work. Despite being ill, I can’t say I’m mad about it! I got back from Chicago late Wednesday night, and can’t wait to share all of the content I shot while I was traveling– I even tried my hand at creating a travel and outfit vlog that I’ll be posting to my YouTube channel soon! Life has been pretty quiet this week since I’m a teacher, and it’s spring break. I’m grateful for the opportunity to rest and recover, and I’m looking forward to being back to working with my students on Monday.

But for now, it’s time for another round of weekend links!

It’s the weekend friends, and I’m soaking in all I can of this lazy, sunny Saturday. My week was busy, full teaching, working, and spending time with friends and family, and of course, drinking a lot of coffee. I’m spending my weekend preparing for Monday night’s event, working on some fun projects I’ll be sharing soon, and playing the music from La La Land. It makes for a pretty great weekend afternoon, and I’m grateful for this time to recharge and work on my personal projects! As usual, I have some links for you this weekend listed bellow. Also, if you’re planning on coming to the Galentine’s Day event, I’d love to hear!

From how to wash silk to where to buy a Valentine’s card, this week’s links have got you covered.

Green Wool Coat by Banana RepublicHappy weekend, once again, friends! This weekend my schedule is pretty jam packed as I get ready for a local Christmas concert I’m playing in next week. We are running seven shows, which means busy evenings and long rehearsals, but I love the festive hum of being involved in a holiday concert. Between work and the show, I’m hoping to make time for festive activities like decorating, making treats with my sisters, reading by the fire, knitting along to a Christmas movie, and playing my favorite holiday records. Here’s to a full but fun week!

Since this is my first holiday season since I finished university, my goal has been to plan ahead to really enjoy the season. When I was in college, Christmas shopping didn’t happen until vacation started which was the week of Christmas day. The rush of coming home and getting everything done made the season a bit more stressful than I would like, so this year, I’ve already nearly finished with my shopping, and have my activities planned out to make the most of my favorite time of year. Hooray for progress!

Mylo Coffee Co. Little RockHappy weekend friends! It’s been a while since I sat down to type up a weekender post, and I’ve missed it! This week I was so happy to see Friday come. For some reason I really struggled to be motivated at work all week– maybe it was the after effects of being ill? In any case, I’m so looking forward to this weekend and the following week! My brother arrived in town late last night, and the holidays are kicking off for my family. I look forward to Thanksgiving week more and more the older I get. There’s nothing quite as sweet as spending quality time with my family, especially as these times are increasingly rare.

Tonight I’m excited to be attending a symphony concert for the first time this season. I love the music, and I love the excuse to dress up! Sunday’s have become so busy for me this fall with rehearsals, but I’m enjoying making music with some wonderful people. Next week I’m off of work, and it promises to be full of laughter, baking, Christmas movies, and my favorite people. I’m also super excited to be bringing some festive cheer here to the blog! Keep your eyes peeled for some fun posts starting on Tuesday!
