Randoms

It's been forever since I put together a Friday post, so I have all sorts of randomness saved up!  
Let's get right to it... 

-ONE-
I have been eyeing this floral Anthropologie swimsuit for weeks.  The price was the only thing keeping me from the purchase.  Finally I had talked myself into the $100 price tag, but no... no... that's just for the bottoms!  The whole suit goes for a whopping $210.  So sadly, I will not be sporting this bikini this summer.


-TWO-
I often mention how wonderful this blogging community is, but it has only gotten sweeter lately.  There are four other girls that I text with daily, and who have truly become some of my bestest friends.  They get me, accept me, love me.  They make me laugh way too hard!  But most importantly they are so supportive & caring, and they check in on the harder days.  March was a pretty tough month; one where two family members passed away and a potential cancelled visit from my parents was looming.  But one morning I was surprised by some fresh flowers delivered to my door along with some witty poetry!  My day was made!  Love you Erin, Sara, Desiree, & Liz!!!


-THREE-
I have been making these three ingredient biscuits on a regular basis, and they are amazing!  So easy (as in easy enough for me to whip up before a playdate) & so tasty.  Sometimes I add a few fancy ingredients like an herb & honey, but that isn't even necessary.  What is necessary is using a fun shaped cookie cutter to really wow everyone.  Who doesn't want butterfly shaped biscuits?!


-FOUR-
We all know that Instagram is my preferred social media platform.  It's where I engage the most and definitely where I share the most pictures.  And today, I have a new account to share that you all need to follow...  One of my childhood friends bought a sprinter van with his (now) fiance, and they are traveling the country and documenting their adventures.  For a glimpse at their simple & tiny living as well as gorgeous locations, follow them at Van Ventures


-FIVE-
Sara & Laura got me hooked on the Missing Maura Murray podcast, and I can't get enough!  I have no theories, but I need answers!!!  I will say, it's completely worth listening to, but it is not necessarily a well put together podcast.  But you move past that, because you get so captivated by the story.


Well that was just a little bit of everything now wasn't it?  
Hope you all survived Monday!

  8. That suit is SO cute! Maybe if I hit the lotto lol! Those biscuits look amazing too :) I've never attempted making biscuits, but maybe I should give it a go since they're only three ingredients!

  15. So that bathing suit is gorg, but I'm sorry - $210? That's just plain robbery. Maybe since it's so pricey, no one will buy it and you can snag it on a deep discount one day soon. Positive thinking:) So sorry that March was a rough month, but glad that you have some good support - including that of some wonderful blog friends - that helped you through it. Yay for wonderful bloggers who serve as good reminders that blogland as a whole is still a good, happy place!

  17. Internet friends are seriously the best friends.

    I'll never forget a group of women that I'd never met sent me a giant bouquet after my IVF cycle. It was the most touching thing ever. So, I totally understand how you must have felt! Really, really kind.

  19. $210?! My torso could never rock something with that price tag. But. It is adorable.

  26. Isn’t it crazy how something of so little material can cost so much? It is beautiful, but I could never justify $210 on a swimsuit. This community is amazing! I still feel so much joy over the flowers you ladies sent me a couple of months ago. What a fun adventure your friends are on!
