the week in photos.

when you’re in the air conditioning, packing for a weekend of college football & drinking pumpkin beer ..your brain screams “FALL!!!“. then you open the door and 100° temps slap that crazy idea right out of your mind. oh well. nothing can bring me down – football is here!!  and fall will come soon enough.

[J] & I are headed to our college town of iowa city, IA to join in on the festivities.

it has been so long since I’ve been back. I’m excited to spend the weekend wandering our old stomping grounds. and cheering on the football team, of course.

[we’re also going to dinner tonight at the spot of our very first date. almost 6 years later].

before I leave town, let’s do ..

I was on a mission for fresh flowers. perfectly placed in my {thursday friday} tote.

and I couldn’t leave without my standard iced coffee + breakfast burrito, which I got in “bowl” form. to switch it up a bit.

and this is what happens when your fiance’s golden birthday rolls around & you get the bright idea to DIY. thankfully the majority of the glitter is either so deep into our carpet we’ll never see it again or sucked up by the vaccum. but those gold confetti stars are haunting me, wherever I go.

and with that .. it’s time to get this weekend started!

if you don’t already, follow me on {instagram} + {twitter}. I’m sure to be an unpredictable, pretending to be twenty-one again, ball of fun. maybe!

one more thing.

in “honor” of my birthday, I’m offering ..

have the best weekend.

motivated by a burrito.

I hope you all had the best weekend.

my mom called me on friday morning, and asked if she could come visit for the weekend. the perks of living close. [two hours from my hometown]. I said heck yeah. plus [J] was out of town for work, so it was nice to have the company.

we got wild on friday night. I’m talking dinner + a cocktail, or 7. which resulted in a late bedtime. but we were determined to get up super early for the des moines {farmers market}. it’s from 7AM to noon, but we wanted to beat the crowds [and the heat]. so we had to arrive early.

the plan was 7:30AM. the reality 8AM.

let’s just say there was a breakfast burrito I “desperately” wanted. and the last time we went, the line wrapped around the block. “it’s all part of the experience“. when it comes to food & me, especially in the morning ..there’s no messing around in a 30 minute line. so I had a lot of motivation to get there early this time around.

rest assured I got my breakfast burrito.

[which I guess means: I can be bribed out of bed by a breakfast burrito, no matter how early. even slightly hungover & sleep deprived. only slightly ashamed].
