Hi! Did you think I forgot about you?! Well, never! I've been feeling a little quiet since Mr. Luis took off for the warm coast-- but I am trusting this long weekend to give me plenty of sleep and relaxing time to get my strength back up! I've decided to start working out again (yay, me!) after months and months of not.

But you know what would make me feel better, like instantly? A combination of the items below. And yes, the cake plate is included, I'm really into cake plates right now.

All baked goods are from A Sugar Affair on Etsy (I love their banner!). From left to right: Paradise Brownies ("fudgy brownies filled with sweetened coconut and white chocolate chips, topped with macadamia nuts and drizzled with caramel and chocolate.") , Gourmet Rice Krispie Bars (honestly, my favorite food!), Cream Cheese Swirled Brownies (I just heard on Tyra, or somewhere, that these are really good for you..fats and dark chocolates and all, seriously...they're like...vitamins).

The small grey lace cake plate is from Jeanette Zeis Ceramics on Etsy. And if I'm being perfectly honest with you, I have been lusting after it for months. MONTHS! Also, her tag line is "Lovely pottery for the home"- yes! Love her stuff, from her cake plates to her berry bowls.

In lieu of buying more things (do you know how much "Bride" paraphernalia I've bought in the past week?!), and eating trays and trays of brownies, I'll be trying to relax, sleep and work out. How's that sound? Any great ideas on getting into a great mood?


  1. A hot bath, a visit to or from a dog, anything chocolate (glad you already have that on the list) and a drive around town on a day like today blasting upbeat music and singing. The singing is a must.

  2. Thanks Maya! I spent the day holding my pup, ordering Save the Dates (Yay!) and eating delicious salads-- goodest plan ever. xx!
