Weekend Wandering


Happy Monday! I spent the weekend doing… not much of anything, really. And boy did I enjoy it! Last week was a busy one and I took full advantage of this weekend’s open schedule and caught up on some much-needed sleep. We’re talking 8 p.m. bedtimes. Call me lame, but it was amazing. I think the 24 hours of sleep I got on Friday and Saturday night was about what I had cumulatively gotten throughout the entire week. Much, much needed.

Since I was so early to bed, I was pretty early to rise. I got back to my roots and used the quiet mornings to do some neighborhood exploration. Croissanteria is just around the corner from my apartment, but I had yet to stop in before Saturday morning. It’s going to be a new staple, that’s for sure! Absolutely amazing croissants. I can never make up my mind when choosing between a chocolate croissant and an almond one. (First world problem, I know.) Turns out Croissanteria has a Chocolate Almond Croissant. I’m almost certain I did a little happy dance!ย Nothing like a large iced coffee and a perfect pastry to perk you up at 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning. I was quite the chipper chica as I strolled around the neighborhood!

I’m a tad bit concerned about the lack of mileage between my apartment steps and the newly found coffee shop. That chocolatey almond confectionery concoction needs to not happen as often as I’m afraid itย will. But hey, at least I’ve got my Levi’s Revel Jeans and their slim-enhancing details! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love this outfit and I am so jealous of the coziness of it all! It is still 90 degrees in Albuquerque and I am dreaming of cords, vests and boots.
