Helllllllllooooooooooo, Friday! HAPPY to see you, indeed. 

I shared on Instagram stories last night that I was going to use some lavender oil to help me sleep. Lavender oil also produces the most bizarre and intense dreams for me. So, while I didn't wake up a lot in the night, I woke up in the middle of a dream, which makes me feel a bit like a zombie. (Disclaimer: I know very little about oils other than lavender on the bottoms of my feet helps me sleep deeper.)

A girlfriend and I met for a coffee last Sunday at a cute place by my  apartment. I couldn't resist ordering a nutella crepe, which was delicious, and had my first chai latte ever. It was at said coffee date that I thought, "I should come here to do work more often" and it was decided. I drove past it the next day on my way to the gym and read a sign that said, "PERMANENTLY CLOSED" and everything was cleared out. I'm talking, within less than 24 hours. HOW DID THEY DO IT. Also, now all I want is a nutella crepe 😭

I'm seriously crushin' on these sneakers and just might have to order them to see if I love them as much, in person.

I'm on the semi-casual hunt for new flats and tried Tieks, after so many of you recommended them. While I like how sturdy the sole was, I just couldn't get around the teal bottom or the shape on my feet - they looked like a cross between grandma slippers and little girl ballet shoes. It was weird! I've seen them on other girls and they look so cute, I must have weird feet. Anyway, I've received other recommendations for Tory Burch flats, but I don't like the big emblem/branding on the toe. Isn't it the case that once you start looking for something specific, you can't find it? Yeah, that's happening. Also, eerily similar to my search for bridal shower dresses. 

I did order a pair of these flats, based on the reviews. So, we'll see! There's hope! 

My sister and nephews come into town this weekend for a few days! I'm excited to see them again and hopefully get some one-on-one time with Kate in the city! 

Have a great weekend!
