Another week in the books. Can’t believe next week will be February already… anyone else feel like it’s flying by? I know I’m taking things one day at a time… but I’m really looking forward to February. I’m not even sure why, exactly, but I just have a good gut feeling about it.

ON MY RADAR 1.29.21

Wanted to share some things on my radar this week:

ONE // Amanda Gorman’s TED Talk

I am still riding on the Amanda Gorman bandwagon. She is just incredible and I cannot to see where she goes from here. I found her TED Talk and, shocking, it’s brilliant. While listening to her poem at the Inauguration, I was just so moved by her words. I also kept thinking about what a brilliant opportunity this would be for high school teachers to discuss her poetry in class. Well, add her TED Talk to the mix. I listened to it twice and forwarded it to a dozen people.

TWO // Liberty Cocktail Napkins

These are hands down the best cocktail napkins I’ve ever seen. I think I’m going to order a few to keep on hand for hostess gifts (when we can, you know, do that again) and then get a few for myself. I just am a complete sucker for all things Liberty.

THREE // The Garden Handbook

One of my internet friends sent me a copy of her digital garden planner. It is PACKED with information and truly a work of art on top of that. (Seriously, even if you have no intention of gardening, take a look at her website… it’s the most beautiful one I’ve ever seen.) I had mine printed and bound at Staples. Cannot wait to dig into it and start planning my Pepper Watch 2021, ha.

FOUR // Sage Floral Headboard

I have no desire to do much decorating right now. I just don’t have the energy (and I’m terrible at it so it just ends up being frustrating). But that doesn’t stop me from browsing online and pretending like I am going to redesign some spaces around the house. I recently stumbled on this printed headboard and, wow, I love it. The print and color are such a good combo.

FIVE // The Parent Trap Birthday Party 

Saved the best for last… how freaking cute is this Parent Trap birthday party. Would it be weird if I threw  this kind of party a 32nd birthday? Asking for a friend 😉 I love all the details: the lizard on the Evian bottle, the peanut butter and Oreos, the “Cuppy” necklace making. SO GOOD.

Oh my gosh, I’m SO happy you also freaked out over that birthday party. It’s all I want for my next one!!


Ha! My friend and I do a movie night to celebrate her birthday every year. We have themed snacks, an activity, a matching outfit and then just hang out watching the movie. Last year (her 30th) we did Parent Trap and it was a blast. I wear my Camp Walden shirt all the time. This year it’s Steel Magnolias…

I think a parent trap birthday party is completely appropriate for a 32 year old. Or maybe a fun theme night for your nieces? Either way, it’s the cutest! When the movie came out I got my hair cut just like Hallie, only wore cloud pajamas, and they made a stuffed cuppy as a promo and I totally slept with it every night. So I might use it for my birthday too haha
