life lately in snapshots (+ hittin' the road!)

Bubby and Bean Instagram

Pics from top:  1. my new buddy loves our front porch  // 2. mid-week lunch/coffee break // 3. my DIY mani: periwinkle + slate stripe // 4. my sister's DIY mani: water marbling (she wins) // 5. the last sunflowers from our garden (tear)  // 6. love my new necklace from oasap // 7. fun with homemade falafel // 8. fun with homemade pesto // 9. husband at work // 10. amazing late summer sunsets last week // 11. brunch // 12. stepdad's 60th // 13. sneak peek of marshalls fall fashion challenge (stay tuned for post this week!) // 14. andy warhol = my favorite artist since age 13, so clearly i had to snag these.

The last time I posted some recent peeks into my daily life using Instagram photos, I explained why I sometimes feel hesitant about doing so.  You guys were awesome in the comments and said that you enjoy these glimpses (and that many of you who blog do the same), so I decided to continue to share this way on occasion.  Those of you on Instagram may have already seen some of these, but they pretty concisely sum up much of what I've been up to over the last week or so. 

So yeah, it's Monday.  I'm usually not fan of Mondays (at all), but this Monday is okay by me. I have a very full schedule this week work-wise, and then I'm leaving for a quick weekend trip on Friday to meet some of my very best friends (three of whom were bridesmaids in my wedding last year) in Colorado, and I can't wait.  The plan: go to see Robbie and the band play Red Rocks Friday, head north for an old friend's wedding Saturday, then meet back up with Robbie in Boulder Sunday.  That evening, he and I fly home together for a couple of days before he leaves for tour again. I used to be a very regular traveler, but when Bubby dog got older, I didn't feel right leaving him and I stopped.  It was time for a break anyway, and over that year or so when I mainly stayed put, I really learned to appreciate being home.  That said, I've never quite been able to fully kick the wanderlust.  The next few months are full of travel plans again, and I'm really looking forward to it.
