the week

Hi Loves!

I didn't take many photos this week, but I love this one I found on Pinterest. Minerals are lovely, aren't they? I'm having a rest day as my ankle is still a mess. Been up since 4:30 so a trip to Starbucks seems to be in order, or maybe my little cafe' to write. We'll see how the day progresses...

Overall I just need a good nights sleep. I've been waking up between 4:30-5:00 with a start each morning from nightmares. No fun. So a NAP is happening for sure!

Here are a few things that happened this week...

--> Our passports arrived in the mail! Australia here we come!

--> I ordered some shoes and a rolling carry on bag with the money I made on a camera trade-in.

--> I had too much coffee some days while not having enough on others.

--> I wore a dress every day…hope to be brave enough for an outfit post sometime!

--> I painted my nails gold and coral pink.

--> My mother-in-law and I picked out new plants together. I got a string of pearls succulent and she found an  
     amazing plant I’ve never seen before (I even had her name it!).

--> I went thrifting with my sister and little nephew JoJo.

--> I worked through our pile of laundry (almost done!).

--> I wrote 500 words a day.

--> I had a half-breakthrough in therapy yesterday and am still feeling a little less depressed. Hooray!!!


This weekend we are painting and setting up my dressing room. I can't tell you how ecstatic I am to get some more things done in the house! I will take before and afters for sure. ;)

What are you doing this weekend?

Love, C


  1. This sounds like a pretty good week :) I bet you can't wait for your holiday to Australia, you'll have to come to England sometime now!! xx

  2. Writing 500 words every day. That is amazing! (All of your week is great, but that's my favourite part.) I need to take a page out of The Book of Catherine and try that challenge, myself. :) I'm glad you had a great week, lady. You deserve every moment of Awesome.

  3. Sounds like ups and downs, and you're focusing on the positive. Good for you. I know what you mean about the nightmares… been dealing with them pretty regularly lately (comes and goes in cycles), and it is hell on your sense of feeling rested.

    I'm sleeping as much as possible, trying to make it through the next few days 'till I can see the pain doc. There was a mixup and then another fuckup and I got screwed on pain medication and neither Corey or I are very happy. This is *not* okay, but he's totally on my side and we'll get this straightened out.


I adore your notes! Please don't be shy! :)
