Three Things I’m Loving This Week

Happy Sunday and Mother’s Day from (picture-perfect weather on) the East Coast! Sun is shining and temps are in the 70s. Yesterday was a different story – wet and rainy!  This past week has been beautiful, but leave to Mother Nature to spoil Saturday with a lovely thunderstorm. But, the rain didn’t stop me from an afternoon adventure. Yesterday I headed south to one of my all-time favorite towns in Connecticut…Mystic. Look for pictures and a post in the upcoming days from my little trip. Here’s a teaser of one of my fav shops (and a main reason I love going to Mystic) – The Black Dog.

Last weekend I spent at home (Columbus, Ohio) visiting my husband and family. It was a great trip home (as usual!) Celebrated my mom’s birthday with an afternoon shopping trip to German Village (adorable village on the outskirts of downtown Columbus) as well as dinner at a new restaurant at Easton Town Center – Texas de Brazil. The waiters, dressed as Brazilian gauchos, bring around large skewers of a variety of meats. A lot of fun – and totally delicious! Highly recommend!

And now, here’s what I’m lovin!

“I’d Rather Be In Ohio” T-Shirt

Last weekend when I went home, Matt surprised me with this Alison Rose shirt that I’ve wanted for a long time! One of my favorite newer shops at Easton – Celebrate Local – has such a great variety of locally-made treasures – t-shirts, jewelry, bags, wine, cards, and more! I’m a huge believer of supporting local businesses and artists – and this store makes doing so very easy! Next time you’re at Easton, Columbus peeps, be sure to check it out.

Mindy Kaling at the Met Gala

If I wasn’t already totally in love with Mindy Kaling, I am so even more now. She KILLED it at the annual Met Gala. She rocked a custom Lela Rose gown, complete with an Andy Lifshutz necklace and Tonya Hawks bag. I loved, loved, loved her makeup. I think she nailed it with the dark lipstick. Not bad for her first Met Gala!! In other Mindy news, if you’re not watching The Mindy Project or haven’t read her book, do it. Both are hilarious. Can you tell I’m a huge fan of hers?

And last but not certainly least, my momma. (Although I love her every week – not just this one!!!) Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

Have a great week!
