The Friday Jot List

Uh, the Saturday jot list?

Oops. This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but I had both kiddos home all day by myself for the first time. We had a ball and everyone survived, but the blogging most certainly did not get done!

So even though it's a little late, here's what's on my mind this lovely spring weekend.

1. Bloom workshop. 

My sweet blog friend turned real life friend, Michaela, just announced that she is hosting an amazing workshop this summer: Bloom. The workshop, which focuses on blogging, business, photography and design (um, lots of my favorite things!) will be in Grand Rapids, Michigan this June. You can check out more about the event right here. I so wish I could go! But I do plan to be at the Haven Conference here in Atlanta this summer... are any of you planning on attending?!

2. Spring fashion.

I just picked up some fun new things for the fam at Gap. I snagged 40% off at the Friends and Family sale last week, but right now, they've got 35% off regular priced styles with the code word STYLE. Not too shabby.

For the kiddos, I picked up these shoes for HDawg and this bathing suit for LLJ. I definitely plan to get her some sort of ridiculously ruffled bikini, but this will be a nice, practical option for her : )


David picked up a few soft V-neck tees and this cute button up shirt.


For myself, I ordered this dress, which appears to be out of stock. Hopefully it will be a good every day dress to get me through spring! I also picked up these classic Chucks from Nordstrom to get me through those pre-flip flop warm days.

I think my little fam will be styling and ready for warmer weather!

3. Tuesdays at Ten June. Submit your favorite projects to me this weekend to be featured next week!

4. Monthly Clean Home Challenge. 

 Has anyone been following along with Jen's Monthly Clean Home Challenge? She added an extra task to her cleaning list for the month of March to help beef up her cleaning routine. Sort of an extra spring cleaning boost, if you will. And I am so inspired! 

Right now, I'm trying to dig back into my weekly cleaning schedule that I created at the beginning of the year (as much as my three week old will let me!) but I plan to take Jen's challenge sometime soon. If I can get my act together, maybe in April? Okay, May. Maybe June. If you're lucky.

5. Smoothies. 

Believe it or not, we have been without a blender for about a year. Ours broke months and months ago and for some reason, we just never replaced it until recently. I know, weird, right? It's amazing what a simple $40 kitchen appliance will do for ya. Anyways, David, HDawg and I are officially obsessed with smoothies now that we have a blender in the house again. It's our go-to snack these days. If you follow me on Pinterest, you'll see that I've been pinning some smoothie recipes onto my Food + Recipes board. Got any other good ones I should add?!

Have a great weekend, friends!


  1. I have that suit for Kenley and I've been LOVING the Iheartorganizing monthly challenge, I've tried making a calendar for cleaning like that before and it never worked, hoping to follow her lead. And thank you for posting the smoothie recipes, so needed that!

  2. What kind of blender do you have? I want to get into smoothies, especially as a way to add in fruits and veggies for the kiddos. Any blender I have had always freezes up, I guess I should preface that with a note that I usually like frozen smoothies. Do you do frozen smoothies?

  3. Isn't Jen amazing?! I've loved her series! I would love to go to haven (hello it's here!!) but I'm planning on going to the everything applique conference here in June. I monogram/applique on the side and want to learn more tricks!! :) we'll have to see how the budget looks ;)


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think. I ♥ comments.
