the week in photos.

the weekend is upon us.

there’s wine. relaxation. and a lot of reading ahead of me. and while I’m reading, I’m going to pretend I’m laying on a beach, with a strawberry daiquiri in hand. much like the life [J] is living this weekend. why didn’t I sneak into his suitcase?

  1. every time you turn on the news, all you hear about is the flu. so I made sure [J] was stocked up on {airborne} before boarding the plane. [free samples comin’ in handy].
  2. my “style” can be pretty plain jane. but that just makes it easier for me to accessorize. love this chunky, gold chain from {charming charlie}.
  3. I’m a fan. of kind bars.
  4. my fave part of [J] & I’s {TwoCoins Etsy Shop} is the not-so-dainty stemware collection. & it’s now on {facebook}. woot woot!
  5. while I was at Trader Joe’s satisfying my wine craving, I found this gem of pasta salad: noodles, chickpeas, lemon oregano dressing, & feta cheese. I recommend.
  6. I sure did eat a giraffe cookie.
  7. last week {} liked one of my photos on instagram. as soon as I saw it, I screamed. pretty cool, right? well today .. Lauren Conrad herself [her personal instagram] liked a different photo. DAY MADE!! it’s the little things in life. thanks LC ;)

have the absolute best, most relaxing weekend.

when [J] & I opened our {TwoCoins} Etsy shop, we were offering one standard set of “mason jar stemware”. less than a week later, the boss put her foot down [that’s me. and I’m joking] ..we now have a ..

stemware collection.

let me proudly introduce you to …


there are ..

cordial glasses pagewhich are absolutely perfect for your holiday cocktails. [they happily hold 4oz of your choice of beverage].

[J] & I went with the spiked egg nog – filled up our glasses. and garnished them each with a chocolate peppermint stick.


so scrumptious.

these cordial glasses could also be the prettiest dang shot glass you’ve ever served a shot in. shots, shots, shots, shots everrrrybody.

we also have ..

margarita glasses pageI’m the kind of gal who likes her margaritas by the 32; ounces that is. but I cannot get over how adorable these glasses are, even if they’re only 8oz of lime, tequila-y goodness. guess I’ll just have to go back for seconds. [I’m on the look out for a grande size].


and don’t forget about our not-so-dainty wine glasses ..
