An Update From NC + Friday Finds!

Hi from North Carolina, where we are potentially in the line of fire for Hurricane Dorian😅

I’ve been a lil MIA because last week, I flew with my from LA –> NYC and then drove down to NC on Friday, when we somehow got the dates confused and realized our beach house was actually rented until SATURDAY…so we all had to stay in a hotel which wasn’t dog friendly but Ovi isn’t very sneaky because he barks at everything.

The two of us “slept” in my car in the parking lot and finally settled in on Saturday for a wonderful Labor Day Weekend, and that’s the gist of it! Always an adventure😂

Other than that, things have been a bit of a cluster fk because I signed on quite a bit of new work and was thrown into that fire. To say I was stressed would be the understatement of a century, but luckily I’m in my favorite place in the whole world and look out my window at the ocean if I need to be instantly calmed!

It’s crazy to think we’ve already been here almost a week, but we’ve had so much fun and Ovi LOVES it here. He’s such a beach boy and was starting to go into the ocean before they shut the beach for the hurricane!

We’ve been eating all kinds of yummy things (my brother and his friends love to cook!) like a shrimp boil/bake, bbq, and bagels – my FAVE. I’m so looking forward to when my bf gets here on Saturday, I’m just crossing my fingers that his flight isn’t delayed or that we can’t get over the bridge to the mainland because of flooding!

Anyway, I hope you all had an amazing LDW and short work week! Figured I’d share just a few of my fave links before I go:

A Cheap & Delicious Miracle One Pan Meal – Why yes, I WILL be making this the week I get home from vacation🙌🏻

Cashew Coconut Oat Milk – ALERT THE MASSES. This sounds insane!

How to Fall Asleep Anywhere in 5 Minutes – Before I had severe back pain that made it impossible to sleep past 5am and I was exhausted by 9pm each day, I had pretty major sleeping issues😅 A sleep mask seriously changed my life (even though I thought I could NEVER sleep with one) and as for the rest? Definitely going to try those next time I’m strugglin’!

6-Ingredient Paleo Banana Blueberry Muffins – Seriously surprised by this ingredients list! Would love to make a version with pumpkin for fall😍

Enjoy your weekend and I’ll be back again soon!!
