Life Lately, Vol. 7

FRI-YAY!

After being not only delayed twice, but cancelled, and then re-delayed on my way back from FLL (you can read about my trip here), I finally arrived home 48 hours later. While I certainly don’t enjoy dealing with airline delays (Spirit customer service, you can expect to hear from me later today!), I was able to spend a quick 36 hours in Atlanta seeing my family which was a wonderful surprise! I must admit, I was feeling a little homesick and needed that visit.

3rd visitor in 2 weeks arrives on Sunday so keeping this guest room clean is key…

Travel: Speaking of, there has a been a lot of travel new lately, including a new 72-hour SPG cancellation policy update (I’m a loyal member with status so this makes me cringe) and some possible restrictions when visiting Cuba, a country I’m hoping to make it to soon. Looks like I better plan this trip for sooner rather than later.

Honeymoon: In other travel news, we are booking away! I mentioned before that we booked our safari via Sabi Sands and now we’ve booked our hotels in both Johannesburg & Cape Town. Next up: inter-Africa flights (to/from the safari lodge and from JNB-CPT), our hotel in wine country and…wait for it…shark diving!! AHHH this is really happening.

Shopping: I’m on a major spending freeze (weddings & honeymoons are no joke y’all…$$$); however, I am in search of a couple cute one-piece bathing suits. We all know they’re making a huge comeback. Gone are the days of old, frumpy one pieces. The ones these days are stylish, sexy & so cute! I’ve got my eye on this black one & this off the shoulder. How cute for bike riding around a beach town? Throw on some jean shorts & you’re ready! Perhaps I’ll get both…

Reading: Not like I have any time for reading right now; however, laying on the beach with a good paperback (and a glass of rose) may or may not be my Sunday activity of choice. I’ve currently got The Royal We and Forks, Knives and Spoons in my cart. Both came highly recommended as fun & easy summer reads. Anyone read them?

Interiors: Crushing hard on this Studio McGee Park City renovation. Whoever owns this home is one lucky duck! This rustic meets mountain dream home is To. Die. For. Let’s be honest, anything Syd & Shea touch turns to gold. Check it out!

Wedding: The 6-week countdown begins. My fiancee & I are getting SUPER excited to host all of our loved ones for the weekend. Given that my to do list is a mile long (about 6 printed pages to be exact), I am spending every waking second this weekend getting stuff done. I need a whole new word for “overwhelmed”. Who wants to help me? Any takers?

On that note, I’m off to Michaels, The Dollar Store, Anthropologie, Staples & Target to knock stuff of this list. Wish me luck!

What’s on your weekend agenda?!

  1. Hi! In April I spent two weeks in SA for work and fun. I stayed at Babylonstoren in wine cointry and it was out of this world for two nights. I highly recommend checking it out if it’s not on your list. It’s the most charming place and the food is out of this world! Happy planning! Also make sure when in Cape Town go to the Old Bisket Mill on Saturday early. The cutest shops, food and culture. The city pretty much shuts down the rest of the weekend which is kind of annoying.
