    FRIDAY EDIT | 2.8

    Happy Friday! Is anyone else in shock with how fast February is going… January seemed to drag and drag and drag but I feel like February is basically over. Maybe it’s just that my schedule is jam packed this month. I kicked off the month with a visit from my mama and now I’m heading to Palm Springs, the first of manyย  exciting little things happening this month! With that said… let’s get right to it…

    PACKING FOR PALM SPRINGS | THOUGHTSBYBRANDI.COM

      PACKING FOR PALM SPRINGS

      I’m heading out to Palm Springs this weekend for 5 days for a photography retreat with some of my favorite photography friends. I’m so excited but with the mood swings that SoCal weather has been having, I’m finding it so difficult to pack. When I think of Palm Springs, I think of color and mod-architecture, Palm Trees and bougainvillea lined streets, sunshine and cacti, so much cacti… I don’t think of 40 degree temps at night and chilly pools…

      COFFEE TABLE BOOKS YOU'LL WANT TO READ + A GIVEAWAY!

        COFFEE TABLE BOOKS YOU’LL WANT TO READ + A GIVEAWAY!

        They say a home can speak a thousand words about your personality but if there’s one decor item that can speak volumes, it’s a coffee table book. Right away, you can tell someone’s interests by the books they keep. There is something so sophisticated about a Coffee Table book, wouldn’t you agree? They’re one of my favorite items to display as decor and I love to read and thumb through them on a rainy day or in the morning…

          FRIDAY EDIT | 2.1

          Happy Friday y’all! We had a few glimpses of warmer weather and it has me itching for summer. I laughed at myself as I shopped sales this week because I only gravitated towards shorts and sandals, although, I did purchase a winter parka haha. Who else is glad that January has come to an end, the month seemed to drag and drag and I’m ready for all things February! I have a trip to Palm Springs and all sorts…

            WILD WEST TRENDING

            They say, you can take the girl out of Texas but you can’t take the Texas out of the girl. While I’ve adapted to Southern California and left the Texas heat behind, my southern roots still run deep. George straight is a nightly staple in our house and two stepping through the living room with Easton is a favorite past time of mine. Place a Texas sized steak in front of me and I’ll devour it. Oh and there’s…

              FOCUSED ON FIT

              For the longest time, I associated the word fitness with the number on the scale. I was so zoned in to that number that I was only trying to be fit to see that number go down. It wasn’t until more recently that I’ve realized, fitness isn’t a number on the scale or even the number on my jeans. It’s the lifestyle and a feeling of health. It’s the energy I feel without coffee, the absence of bloat, it’s…

                FRIDAY EDIT | 1.26

                Happy Friday my friends! Today is a big day for our family… Ryan takes one of his last big surgery tests and is one step closer to finishing up residency! I’ll be celebrating this milestone all day long because not only does it mean I get my husband home and present a little more often, but it means we’re soooo close to the finish line (amen)!
                In other news, I’ve been doing a lot of Tidying Up, thanks to Marie…
