Friday Forecast and Bang Reveal

Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday...

We have once again made it to the weekend, but not just any weekend. A looooong weekend! Woot Woot!

As a labor day baby growing up with a lake house Up North, Labor Day weekend is one of those special weekends of the year. A last hurrah of summer which was made to be filled with campfires, bug spray, and s'mores. To celebrate, Mike and I are making our first camping trip to Stone Mountain.

It's our first camping trip together and the first time camping in about 10 years for both of us. This week has been full of planning and packing. I made a grocery store run Wednesday while Mike's fantasy draft was going on. All of his dudes live in different cities, but thanks to technology and webcams they were able to get all their trash talking in live and face-to-face.

Luca seems to share my excitement about fantasy drafts.

Our original reservation was for 3 nights, but after factoring in Atlanta traffic and the earlier sunset we decided to hold off til tomorrow morning to head out. We thought it was best to not try to set up a new tent for the first time in the dark. The gear is ready to go but the front door. We have a few more last minute items to pick up at Target tonight, and then we will be ready to go!

Bang Reveal

Last night was the big night. I started thinking about bangs last winter, but with the Ding coming up I thought it best not to do anything drastic. After 2 years of growing out the same boring cut, I was pumped to make a big change. Here's how they turned out:

I LOVE them! Styling today was pretty easy since my hair drys very straight naturally. I'm excited to see how they work swept to the side or with a high bun.

I hope your weekend is full of fun and adventure!


  1. I absolutely LOVE your bangs. Way to be bold and brave. You look lovely!

    1. Thanks H! I credit New Girl and Tracie, my stylist, for giving me the courage to go through with it :)
