mylo-coffee-co-little-rockBusy Times; Happy Times

It’s the weekend, and I’m excited about it! This week marked my first full week back at teaching, and I’m enjoying getting settled into a routine. It’s so fun to have so many of the same students back this year, and I can’t wait to watch how they grow as pianists. Apart from teaching, I’ve been working on one of my new year’s resolutions this week. I set myself the goal of completing 10 days of The Miracle Morning, which involves a 5 a.m. wake-up time. Right now I’ve finished two days, and although it’s been a challenge to get myself up early, I’m really enjoying the extra quiet morning hours. It’s also helping me get through my reading list, and I’m loving that. This weekend I’m planning to work on a sewing project, (hopefully for a new video tutorial on Sunday!) do more reading, and maybe pay a visit to my favorite local park for a walk with coffee.

national-stripes-day-outfitHappy weekend, and happy April friends! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week! I’ve been getting back into the teaching routine after spring break, and things are getting busy as the school year draws to a close. My students are prepping for a recital, and it’s so fun to be on the teaching side of a performance. Apart from work, my week was full of spending time with friends, working on YouTube content, #nationalstripesday, and recovering from last week’s cold. Spring has arrived in Little Rock, and I’m so starting to look forward to switching my wardrobe over for the warmer weather. I’ve collected a few new pieces for my spring capsule, and I’m so excited to share them with you all! For now, it’s time for another round of weekend links.

This week’s links range from costume design to blush pink nail polish– read on!

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!

The Curated ClosetIt’s Saturday morning, and I’m tucked up with a blanket, a cup of tea, and of course my laptop. This past week was wonderful and busy as usual, full of work and family. I’m so happy that there’s a chill in the air this weekend. My sister and brother are in town, and my sister and I are planning to do some shopping for home decor. I’m on the lookout for any mercury glass nick-knacks I can find!
