friday favorites {july 26th}

Last week, T-man and I spent the majority of our free time at concerts, so this week, we did a much better job balancing things. We finished a TON of stamping projects {using some of my favorite etsy stamps} and I discovered a new craft/scrapbooking store called Archiver’s that’s a mostly midwest chain. I also added an embossing project to our list so look out for that DIY soon! On top of that, we  made it out to dinner & drinks with some new Denver friends and I even started my kettlebell workout {4 weeks is totally enough time to tone my arms and back for the wedding, right?}. I’m currently using this routine, but would love suggestions, too.

The only bad news is, I’ve been so busy doing wedding projects that I haven’t had much time to share them. So, I’m going to make a concerted effort on that front soon.

In the meantime, here are my Friday Favorites.

Friday Favorites July 26th | jessalayne.com

I cannot stop obsessing over Sara Bareilles’s new album. I especially love “I Choose You” {so romantic – a life long love story, are you kidding me?!} and the video for “Brave.” I enjoy a synchronized group dance and T-man and I have jokingly considered learning all the steps to bust out at our wedding.

Clearly we can’t have a barn wedding without at least one chalkboard sign. I can’t vouch for the chalk writing utensils just yet but they were recommended by one of my favorite bloggers, Emily at Jones Design Company, so I have faith they’ll be great.

The wooden bowls came from our registry and they’ve been such a smart choice for side and entree salads alike — I think we used them 3 times this week, which may say as much about my attempt to eat healthy leading up to the wedding as it does about the bowls! The serving bowl fits at least 6-8 salad servings but its light, as are the individual serving bowls.

And the couch. I just want a gorgeously, cozy place to curl up and the perfect focal point of our apartment. Not too much to ask, is it?
