Friday Favorites: Road Trips, Sweaters, and Fresh Face Friday

Oh Friday, how I love you. Honestly, this week has been rough. I have a bunch of blog posts that I started, but I came home so drained that I couldn’t finish them. Oh well, it happens, and next week is a new week!

/ / One:
As of today, Chris is officially done with interviews! I wrote an update on residency on Tuesday, but I just want to say I’m so happy he is going to be around more often.

/ / Two:
Texas weather has been crazy this week—It was 70 on Sunday, and it snowed yesterday. It’s been all over the place, but I have actually enjoyed experiencing both winter and spring in one week.

/ / Three:
Speaking of weather, Loft is currently having an amazing sale with many sweaters only costing $15.88. Here are a few of my favorites:

/ / Four:
Our current thoughts for the hubby’s graduation trip is flying into Phoenix and doing a road trip to Sedona, Vegas (maybe Grand Canyon), Death Valley, San Diego, and Catalina Island. Nothing has been finalized, but we are super excited about this possibility.

/ / Five:
Today, I am a co-host for Fresh Face Friday with Casey! If you haven’t read her blog, it is full of amazing photos and stories from her time in Europe and beyond. Come link up with us and discover new blogs!

  1. This TX weather is crazy right?! Back to wet and cold! I'm so ready for (a consistent) Spring! lol

  2. Hooray for being done with interviews! Prayers y'all get the best place ever for residency!

    Love those sweaters, so pretty! Joined in for the linkup today!

  3. Thanks for the heads up on the Loft sale! I love their stuff :)

  4. Those are some crazy good deals on the Loft sale - I'll have to scope it out!

  5. yay for interviews being over!
    i totally took advantage of the loft sale, and i'm wearing one of the sweaters i bought right now haha.
    jealous of your weather - at least you got a teensy bit of spring lol.

  6. Thanks for the tip on loft's sale- need to check that out!! Woo hoo for being done with interviews!!! Hope you have a great weekend! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  7. Hehe, those sweaters on sale at the Loft would make my day too! I live in Paris, and when friends come over and want to shop, I have to tell them I don't have many places to suggest - I do almost all my clothes shopping in the States when I visit (SO much cheaper). And Ann Taylor / Loft is one of my favs - wish I could take advantage of the sales!

  8. That trip sounds like tons of fun!
    Have a great weekend!

  9. The Texas weather sounds crazy! Florida fluctuates crazily too but never snow, at least not in Orlando. #4 Sounds like an amazing trip! Hope you get to pull it off!

  10. Ooo, I love that second sweater down! Too bad I just seriously splurged on shoes today, haha.

    Olya, your trip sounds absolutely marvelous! A light at the end of the tunnel for all the emotionally exhausting turmoil you and your hubby have been through with these interviews. I haven't done too much traveling down south, so I'll be curious to hear your thoughts if you do end up going :)


  11. Aw, I'm so glad your hubby is done with interviews! I heard about Texas getting snow earlier this week and now it's here in Virginia... weather is crazy. Hope you have a great weekend!

  12. Gorgeous sweaters! The middle one is my favorite :)

    By the way, I am giving away $25 gift card to The Mint Julep Boutique! I’d love if you can send your entries!

  13. I will have to check out Loft! I've been wanting some new sweaters, especially since a lot of mine have run their course.

    Thanks for linking up! We will have to join the blog hop this week :)
