[*editor’s note: this post was originally titled “weekend snapshots”. once I finished writing + read it ..I realized “an ode to [J]” was exactly what it was. and a more appropriate title. he was a DIY building, early morning shopping trooper this weekend].
sometimes when you least expect it, you have the absolute best weekend. I’m happy to report – mine was unexpectedly amazing,
except for my fantasy football team. nothing life altering, but ‘it’s the little things in life’.
since I’m not quite ready to give into monday, I want to share a few of those “little things”.
[J] & I officially reached gold status at starbucks – & our sparkly card arrived in the mail. iced coffee addicts at their finest.
I mentioned on friday, after [J]’s success with our DIY wine racks ..I wanted more. so I created a “man list” for him. little did I know he’d surprise me & tackle the entire thing this weekend ..
our DIY toothbrush + hand towel holder.
I have a thing for pallets ..& I blame pinterest. but after months of pondering what we should do with the pallet we acquired, [J] turned it into this beauty ..
to compliment our grey + yellow bedroom.
the ode to [J] to continues ..
I was so surprised to receive a package on friday, containing an article of clothing I had re-pinned on pinterest earlier in the week. that I did not purchase.
“I NEED COFFEE” long pajama tee.
[this was very sneaky of you [J]. and I love it].
another surprise ..
LLinaBC business cards that [J] created // from moo.
they are amazing.
and last, but certainly not least ..
on sunday morning, I bribed [J]
with iced coffee to get out of bed at 6:30AM and go to target with me, for the launch of the 3.1 phillip lim collection. I had my eye on the black pashli doppelganger, and needed my hands on it. so I sacrificed sleeping in on a sunday. and kindly made [J] do the same. when the doors opened at 8AM ..we went straight for the handbags. and five minutes later, they were all gone. but not before I got the bag I wanted, plus a yellow crossbody. & the BOOM sweatshirt.
[they’re both sold out online, but may still be available in your target store].
see more photos of the phillip lim + target adventure on LLinaBC’s facebook page.
bonus: my college team, the iowa hawkeyes beat our instate rivals.
so there you have it. what makes a great weekend in my book.
have the best monday.
see you tomorrow!
