Happy Friday! It feels weird to say this, but I feel like the weeks have been passing pretty quickly for the last few… Sure, it feels like we’ve been in quarantine for more months than the two we have, but the last few weeks have seemed to go from Monday to Friday in the blink of an eye! For me, at least.

I’m hoping to get out for a run this weekend, but other than that, I just have my wine tasting tomorrow with Cambria! It’s not too late to join if you don’t have plans on Saturday evening, just use the store locator to find a bottle near you. But honestly, we’re not planning to have it be super heavy on the wine talk, so just grab whatever bottle you have (even if it’s water!) and come hang! The more the merrier.

Hope you have a great weekend! And Happy Mother’s Day to those that are able to celebrate. xo

Here are this week’s finds…

If you do one thing this weekend, please promise me you’ll watch this four-minute video. It’s unbelievably heartwarming!

One of my sweet Instagram followers has recently taken up painting again, and is donating 100% of the proceeds to theย Alzheimerโ€™s Association and WHOโ€™s COVID-19 Response Fund! You can check out all of her prints here. She is SO TALENTED! Definitely check her out.

I’ll be making Geri’s take on Nobu’s Miso Cod ASAP! (Update: I have made it multiple times and it’s AMAZING!)

One of my girlfriends dropped me off a homemade Crunchwrap Supreme this week and OH MY GOSH IT WAS DELISH.

She also dropped off a few of these homemade Reese’s eggs that are pretty healthy with only four ingredients and they have to be some of the best things I’ve ever tasted!

Similar to the little pick-me-up packages I’ve mentioned on IG, this men’s clothing company is doing an initiative of the same sort! You can nominate someone through this link.

If you’ve (also) been having some anxiety about going in public, this NYT article made me feel a bit better!

All of this extra time at home has definitely made me want to start nesting! I can’t wait to pick up some new plants in the coming months. Here are a few pots and planters I have my eyes on… I love these rattan-wrapped pots and also love this brass raised one!

In the meantime, I want to order myself this unicorn succulent!

File these slides under N-E-E-D for spring and summer. Might just get them to wear around the house because they’re that effing cute and on sale! (All sizes are available as I’m writing this so hop to it!)

And speaking of slides to wear around the house… Take a peek at these furry little friends. Obsessed. Talk about luxe loungewear!

I really want these for the pool this summer! They’d look fab with a tan.

Really wishing these weren’t sold out in my size. The natural color is so chic, but the pink is so fun, too.

The Shopbop Snooze Shop is what cozy dreams are made of.

This sleep mask is THE CUTEST thing I’ve ever seen. Really wishing I already had a dog to get me this for Mother’s Day, haha.

I literally never thought I would say that a pair of Crocs was cute, but this pastel tie dye pair kind of is…

And speaking of rainbow shoes, majorly lusting over these high tops. And they come in low-tops! And a lower profile, too!

And these are men’s, but they’re also very sick!

And I found this kids pair that I’m DEFINITELY buying for my niece. Rainbow leopard? I mean COME ON! It’s too bad they don’t come in my size, haha.

Oh, and if you need some good background music while you work today, this Lane 8 set on YouTube is so good! Not much to watch since it’s just an at-home recording, but great to keep on in a separate tab.
