Things I Might Tell You…

by Sara on June 3, 2013

if we went on a frozen yogurt date today.

1. It seriously amazes me how rainbow sprinkles (and colorful spoons) completely transform a simple bowl of cake batter froyo into something extraordinary. Is it all in my head? A mental thing? No, itโ€™s for real.

On Saturday I swung by Aspen Leaf for what has become my weekly froyo fix. After my trip to Park City, I decided to designate Saturday my ice cream day. This isn’t a rule per se, rather a special weekend date with myself (and a bowl of amazingness) that I look forward to all week. It helps me stay focused – you know, it keeps my eye on the prize.ย  Kind of like the carrot in the carrot/stick method…except WAY better than a carrot. ๐Ÿ˜‰

2. My adoration for sprinkles demonstrates my inability to say no to anything that’s bright, colorful, and pink. I see something hot pink (or orange) and canโ€™t turn away. According to this chart, which I discovered on Pinterest (where else?), that means I’m enthusiastic, happy, warm, romantic, innocent, aroused (?!) and youthful.

What’s your favorite color?

3. Speaking of color, on Saturday I tried on the yellow JCrew bridesmaid dress I’ll be wearing in my friend Katie’s wedding this summer.

I’m glad Amanda turned me on to self-tanner, because pale skin in a yellow dress is NOT flattering. Faux glow is the way to go! ๐Ÿ˜‰

4. Remember how I told you that my feet slide out of pumps? Well it’s a good thing I’m not required to wear any in this wedding. Instead, the bride has asked the bridesmaids to wear a pair of these.

BOOTS! These babies are the real thing, too. On Saturday I swung by Boot Barn and purchased my first pair of cowgirl kicks. Let me tell you, visiting Boot Barn was aย cultural experience.ย  Lots of country pride there, people.

5. I woke up a few mornings ago with a serious urge to prancercise. I didn’t. However, I’m thinking it’s only a matter of time before I trade my morning jumping jacks for hops and flutters. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I totally want in on this fun fitness trend. Watch your back, Crossfit.

If you haven’t watched this video yet, please do!

6. Most mornings, Iโ€™m far too lazy to brew fresh coffee.ย  A machine that brews it for me would sure be a dream! However, until I marry Mr. Millionaire and can afford a Nespresso maker, I’ll continue drinking my favorite instant Starbucks Via’s. I did pick up a bag of beans over the weekend, though, and hope they’ll serve as motivation to brew a fresh cup a bit more often.

Campfire in a cup?

7. Speaking of coffee, latte lovers take note. My mom was in Portland over the weekend, and sent me this text message.

Apparently Peetโ€™s trumps Starbucks!

8. If coffee isnโ€™t enough to pull you out of bed in the morning, then perhaps youโ€™d be interested in beer? I got a good laugh when Laura posted this on Instagram on Saturday.

Beer + donuts. Homer Simpson’s dream breakfast.

9. Iโ€™ve actually never been a huge donut person, but I complete faith that I’d devour a cronut in under five seconds. Have you heard of cronuts? A croissant and a donut in one?

Oh. Em. Gee. Hoda and Kathy Lee were buzzing about them on Friday, and upon further investigation, I found out that they’re predicted to be the โ€œnext cupcake.โ€ For more information, read this Huffington Post article, and for a few laughs, read this one: Sweet Baby Jesus, Don’t Let The Cronut Become The New Cupcake!

10. You know what’s even tastier than a cronut, though? A mountain of guacamole.

Burrito bowl: grilled chicken, brown rice, salsa fresca, roasted corn salsa, cheese, lettuce, guacamole

Okay, maybe not, but that beautiful masterpiece was my dinner Friday night. A dinner I waited 30 minutes for. All because Chipotle was out of guacamole .ย How does that happen? I had a mini panic attack then the burrito maker broke the news, but calmed down when he told me it would be ready in 10 minutes. Well 10 minutes turned to 15…to 20…and finally, at the 30 minute mark, a big batch of fresh guac rolled out of the kitchen. It was totally worth the wait, though.

11. Speaking of long waits, I waited nearly two years to get my hands on my dream gym tote.

Hello, first ever eBay buy! I was in a full-on bidding battle this weekend, and after losing twice (geesh, people are AGGRESSIVE online!) emerged triumphant the third try.ย  I wanted to buy the Lululemon Triumphant Tote when it first hit store shelves in 2011, but couldnโ€™t justify the hefty price tag. Well, nearly two years later, I still wanted it, and decided that was enough time to justify a purchase. This tote relatively large and has a ton of pockets—attributes that come in handy for people like me who carry their lives in their bags.

12. So I’m pretty sure that I’ll be on eBay every day now, especially when I find things like this.

A Mrs. Potts and Chip tea set! Squee!ย 

12.ย  Remember when I promised to share my meal plan every Monday? Yeah, major FAIL. But! I’m jumping back on board this week!

PicMonkey Collage2

Baked Spaghetti Squash and Cheese via Skinnytaste

Cobb Salads or Chicken Paninis

Baked Chicken Tacos via Iowa Girl Eats (these look SO good!)

Pan-Roasted Salmonย  via A Sweet Pea Chef

Given my track record, only three of these meals with actually be made. But good intentions are all that matter, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

13. Confession: If we were really on a frozen yogurt date, I wouldn’t chat your ear off about the meals I was planning on making this week. But Iย wouldย tell you that you’re nothing short ofย  marvelous.

I want to know…

What’s your go-to coffee shop? Do you brew coffee in the morning?

What type of bag do you carry? What’s your dream bag?

I’ve carried Longchamp totes for years, but I’m ready for something new. The new Lulu tote will be great for the gym, but I’m considering this bag for everyday use.

Croissants or donuts? What’s your favorite breakfast pastry?

Croissants. Favorite pastry: cinnamon rolls!

Marrieds: what color were your bridesmaid dresses? Singles: what color do you want your bridesmaid dresses to be?

Even though pink and orange are my favorite colors, I might consider a pretty purple. I think it’s a color that looks good on everyone.

What’s your favorite color? What’s it say about you?

  • Khushboo

    Confession: I find sprinkles soo pretty but hate them as a topping- they sure do make me smile though :)! My dream bag would hands down be a Chanel tote…another reason why I NEED to marry a millionaire ;)! Have you ever tried Davidoff coffee? It’s my current favorite (instant) coffee and I highly recommend it…it tastes perfect with a splash of soy milk- so smooth!

    On a separate note, I’m so bummed that your London trip got cancelled buuuut I am certain it’s not long till our paths do cross…at least that’s what I’m hoping :)!

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      Nooooo….a sprinkle hater? I’m not sure we can be friends! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll make an exception for you, though, especially because I know you have great taste in dessert (cheesecake lovers unite!). I’ve never tried Davidoff coffee, but I’m definitely going to look it up now.

      I’m super bummed about London, too…Will you be there during summer 2014? Or, even better, any plans to visit the US? xoxo

  • http://twitter.com/FitSwissChick Lucie Pfaendler

    Favorite bag I want to own – Marc by Marc Jacobs! So simple and stylish.
    And girl….you look like the hottest celebrity in that yellow dress! Absolutely stunning! I think I would let my bridesmaids choose the dress they wish – I always find it a little unfair, if one color and one style is set, and for some of the girls it’s perfect and for others….maybe not so perfect. I would feel horrible if I had to wear a strapless dress for example.
    i am totally with you on pink and orange! I completely step into the shopping trap if something is pink!
    Oh girl, I was giving away my Nespresso machine a year ago, because I never used it (no coffee drinker, but got it as a present ) – if I only KNEW!!

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      Thanks, love! <3 I loooove Marc by Marc Jacobs bags, too! Why oh why do they have to be so darn pricey?

      I think letting bridesmaids choose their style is the way to go, too. That's what my friend did; there were six different styles!

      BUMMERRRR about the Nespresso machine! I would have PAID you for it! <3 xoxo

  • Natalie @ Lift,Sleep,Eat

    Oh wow how delicious does that fro you look – i agree the sprinkles completely transform it!! When a fro you shop opens near me I think I may also be spending every weekend there haha!
    I love Starbucks for my coffee, its the nearest/handiest one near me so its pretty much where I’ll always go if I’m in need of a cup, I don’t often brew up my own on a morning though, I just stick to green tea on a morning and may have a cup of coffee later. Loving the look of that S’mores variety though! Wow!
    I just use a regular sort of handbag for all my things – its hugeeee though! I can’t be dealing with small bags ahah I want to be able to fit everything into it.
    I recently read about Cronuts! They sound interesting!!! Would you believe I’m not really a huge fan of croissants :O! Maybe I’ve just never had a good one? I’m not all that keen on donuts either..it depends.
    Love the look of your yellow bridesmaid dress..you look so pretty!! I need to get the fake tan out too so I’m not like a milk bottle! I think purple is a nice colour for bridesmaid dresses too :).
    My favourite colour is definitely red or blue..so that suggest I’m a mixture between energy/calm?! I guess I must sit somewhere in the middle haha.
    Hope you had a great weekend xxxx

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      Thanks, girl! I tried the s’more coffee this morning and loved it! If you want to faux tan, I *highly* recommend St. Tropez – it’s amazing! Happy Monday! <3

  • Claire

    Happy Monday Sara! Sprinkles improve anything by about a million per cent. Fact. I’m not sure exactly why but they do!
    You look gorgeous in that dress, so pretty. Can’t wait to see what it looks like with cowboy boots ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I don’t brew coffee in the morning, I seem to alternate between Caffe Nero, Friska (a local shop here) and Coffee #1 (another chain in the West of England). My boyfriend makes a pretty mean cup too, but he doesn’t drink it in the mornings.

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      I’m so glad you’re on team sprinkles, too! When I lived in London, I loved stopping by Cafe Nero!

  • http://www.sweatlikeapig.com/ Tara @ Sweat like a Pig

    I love the new Lulu bag! I have actually started saving for my dream bag. It’s a light blue Prada and it costs ยฃ1200…. eek.

    Cronuts sound unbelievable! I hate donuts but I loooove croissants so this sounds like a dream.

    I only had one bridesmaid and I let her buy anything she wanted. We were in different states so I gave her full range of choice and I didn’t see the dress until the day before the wedding. Yeah, I know, I’m the best bride ever ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      1200 pounds is crrraaaazaaay! If I’m ever able to save that much money, I think I’ll purchase a trip to Europe…But then again, that would end within a few weeks, and I’d have the Prada bag forever. Hrmm.

      Haha, I love that you didn’t see your bridesmaid’s dress until the day before your wedding. There aren’t enough brides like you! xoxo

  • http://balancejoyanddelicias.wordpress.com/ Coco

    I can invite you over and make a nespesso capucchino for you my dear! :)

    I prefer boutique coffee chops that serve coffee in a ceramic cup instead of a paper cup… like european style… unfortunately it’s not easy to find stores like this in the US. I make decaf capucchino with almond milk every morning with my nespresso. love it!

    Not a pastry fan, but I think I prefer croissants over donuts.

    Favorite color: white (for cloth), lila (just so pretty and chic!).

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      Oh, Coco, I’d LOVE to come over for a Nespresso! Speaking of, we should meet up for coffee once I’m back in DC! :)

      • http://balancejoyanddelicias.wordpress.com/ Coco

        Yes, let me know when you come back and let’s meet for coffee! :) it’s about time for us to “meet”!

  • http://www.starsystemz.com/blog Courtney Violet Bentley

    So yah lets get that FRO YO date planned out! :))) Sprinkles, pink + little hello kitties just make me SQUEE :) My favorite color right now is VIOLET, maybe because it is my middle name. That yellow dress looks AMAZING on you! You are such a beauty, and cowboy boots OBSESSED!!!

    Ok so me + ebay have had a LONG + LOVIN relationship. One thing you can do is if you find something you just have to have you can always message the owner and see if they will work out a deal with you. I have done it in the past and had the seller sell it to me no problem!

    I have been trying to get off the coffee thing as it gives me anxiety so what I have been doing is half coffee + half decaf in my brewer and that has helped a lot! I used to be IN LOVE with dunkin donuts hazelnut coffee! You have to try it!

    Hope you have a great start to your week Sara :) LOVE + shine Court

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      Guuuurl, I will meet you for froyo ANY time! Tell me when and where, and I’m there! Do they have frozen yogurt in Thailand? I bet they have amazing coconut milk ice cream!

      I had no idea you could try to negotiate purchases with sellers – that’s a great idea! I have a feeling that I’ve just started a lifelong relationship with eBay, too. Ooof. But hey, we’re “saving” money, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Love you! xoxo

  • Brittany @ Balance and Bananas

    Rainbow sprinkles are the way to go! Somehow they just make the ice cream so much more fun to eat!! My favorite morning pastry is definitely a cinnamon roll! Love that sugar rush haha!
    For my bridesmaid dresses, I really hope that they’re a light blue or soft purple! I really want my wedding to be at the beach!!
    Love that quote you posted…so uplifting :) Have a marvelous Monday!

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      Sprinkle and cinnamon lovers unite! <3 Happy Monday, Brittany! xoxo

  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats

    That yellow dress looks so beautiful on you :)

    I want to dive into the screen and eat that cake batter froyo with sprinkles!

    I don’t drink coffee anymore I’m all about my chai lattes. I prefer donuts but given the choice I’d choose cinnamon rolls too!

    Hmm I don’t know what colour dresses I’d have my bridesmaids in, maybe like a caramel or latte colour. I’d probably let them decide.

    I love yellow and orange. Not sure what it says about me. I like bright colours? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      Thanks, girl! <3 I love chai lattes! It's been way too long since I've had one, though. I think that needs to change…like, this week. :)

      • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats

        Yes it does!! I have one pretty much on a daily basis :)

  • http://peaceandpizza.wordpress.com/ Taryn

    I want to try that S’mores coffee! Is it from Target? I have a Keurig, so I have a cup from that every morning.

    I heard about those cronuts on GMA and was pretty intrigued. I typically stay away from donuts and croissants, but there’s a donut shop in Charleston that I absolutely love – they have a different menu every morning.

    I don’t carry a bag anymore because I was carrying all kinds of junk around with me. I have a Vera wristlet I use most days. I would like to get a bigger bag for when I’m traveling or running errands all day though – I usually wish I had a place to store more than just my wallet stuff and my cell phone.

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      Yep, I picked up the s’mores coffee at Target! Oh gosh, I’ll definitely have to check out that donut shop when I’m in Charleston! What’s the name?

      • http://peaceandpizza.wordpress.com/ Taryn

        Glazed Gourmet.. it’s on King Street (which is a street you will definitely be visiting).

        • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

          Thank you! Can’t wait!

  • Healthy Diva

    LOVE YOU!!!!! I seriously LOVE every post you put up, you just alway shave the best things!

    You look so pretty in that yellow dress! I love that she has yellow bridesmaids dresses and the cowboy boots to go with! Her wedding is going to be fab!!!

    Froyo, always a win!!!!

    Cronuts?! HOLY cow someone send me one as soon as I pop baby g out in the hospital, that could be my final push motivation, haha!

    PINK is my fave, as you know ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love you!!!!

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      I love YOU!! I think your salted caramel ice cream beats my froyo! That looked so good! I’ll see what I can do about sending cronuts to the delivery room. Ha! xooxo

  • Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl

    My favorite color is yellow, so obviously I am LOVING that bridesmaids dress!!

    And yay for sprinkles! I do not care how old I get..I will ALWAYS love sprinkles and add them to my ice cream, froyo, cupcakes, etc. whenever possible.

    Happy Monday! :)

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      I need to buy sprinkles so that I can start sprinkle-fying everything I eat! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy Monday!

  • http://Www.annatheapple.com/ AnnaTheApple

    I am such a handbag fiend. Luckily so is my mother and I get her off-casts ๐Ÿ˜‰ I adore Mulberry handbags. Though usually I have to settle for much less expensive bags from Accesorize (do you have that in the states?), which are usually more ‘pretty’ bags then funcitonal. Congrats on your Ebay win! I have never been that patient with Ebay. I just don’t have the staminia haha. But I might have a little peruse now you’ve mentioned it…

    That dress is sooo pretty! And so summery! Perfect bridesmaid outfit. And I LOVE that you can wear those snazzy boots them. How very Taylor Swift. My bridesmaid was my sister and she wore a deep purple (kind of aubergine/eggplant) which is my favourite colour. Which apparently means I’m powerful, wealthy and dignified. I’ll take it!! Hehe.

    Good on you for waiting for the guacamole. I would have waited too. I guarentee if it was me and Ben there Ben would have rolled his eyes at me but would understand that I would need to wait. And it looks like it was worth waiting for – a fresh batch as well, yum!

    Donuts over crossiants every time. Though I hate donuts filled with anything. They have to be plain donuts either glazed or sugared or with icing on. Like circular cakes basically :) Crossiants are just a bit disappointing for me. Too flaky and not sweet enough.
    Have a lovely week, Sara :) x

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      Yes, we have Accessorize! I love perusing there – they stock so many fun things! I love the sound of your sister’s bridesmaid dress – aubergine purple is one of my favorite colors, too. :) Happy Monday, Anna!

  • purelytwins

    yellow JCrew bridesmaid dress — adore!! you look amazing in it too!! we got some self tanner to start using too, as we are very pale haha

    and we are donut girls but a cronut sounds interesting – we would love to give that a tase :)

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      Thanks so much, ladies! Since you’re both the queens of creating GF treats, perhaps you’d consider giving the cronut a try? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy Monday! <3

  • Lillian_SeizeTheLatte

    Oooh, that Lulu bag is gorgeous — and so very functional! I’ve never tried eBay before, but I’ve heard it’s great for Lulu apparel. Good for you for jumping in and emerging triumphant from the fray!

    That bridesmaids dress is adorable, too, and I love the idea of wearing it with boots. My bridesmaids dresses were red wrap dresses from Target; I wanted to incorporate red into the mix, since that’s associated with good luck in both Indian and Chinese weddings. (I didn’t want to go full-boar on cultural appropriation, though, so I figured I’d just add pops of red into the getup.) I wore red shoes, so said pops of red were well-coordinated. My main objective, though, was to make sure that a) the bridesmaids dresses weren’t too expensive (I’ve had to pay more for bridesmaids dresses than I paid for my own wedding gown, which I find ghastly) and b) they were versatile enough that they’d be able to accommodate peoples’ body types. Target came through, big-time! The wrap dresses were a whopping $25, and they were really versatile — so really, Target FTW yet again! :)

    • http://www.nourish-and-flourish.net Sara Stewart

      I LOVE that you chose Target for your bridesmaids’ dresses. Spending $200+ per wedding is craaaazy! I think I may follow your lead when (if?!) I get married. And I love the idea of wearing red shoes!

  • Miss Polkadot

    Can I just say how cute I think your newfound eBay fascination is? I used to be all over it buying things and selling what I didn’t need anymore when I was about … 12 (not sure anymore) – with a little help of my brother, admittedly. And yes, I agree some people can get seriously rude when bidding. But aside from that isn’t eBay just such a lot of fun?!

    You look gorgeous in the bridesmaid dress. Did you show it a while back already? Anyway: amazing!

    Seeing as my favourite colour – coral – is a mix of red and pink: What does that say about me? Do I just pick my favourite characteristics from each colour?

    Which bag I carry depends largely on the occasion/where I’m headed. This larger one used to be my favourite (hope the link works) but unfortunately years of use have left their traces so I might have to replace it: http://files.edelight.de/img/posts/228x228_weekender-reisetasche-eule-von-disasterdesign-von-polarstern.jpg
    Oh, thanks for letting me know I’m not the only carrying around her life in her bag. I wish I was better at packing less but it never happens …
    Happy Monday (for the second time already today :)), Sara!

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles

    So I’m not a coffee person by any stretch of the imagination, but even I would have trouble turning down s’mores coffee. That looks awesome!

    And speaking of looking awesome, you look ADORABLE in that bridesmaid dress. I think you may have actually got me to like the colour yellow…an impressive feat because I’m generally not a fan ๐Ÿ˜‰ When I get married, I want purple (I haven’t decided whether to go dark or light yet) as my bridesmaid dresses, because that’s my favourite colour. Which apparently involves royalty, mystery, wealth, power….I’m ok with all of these things.

    Call me crazy, but I’m not a big pastry person…I think I’ve only had a croissant a handful of times in my life and I don’t remember being particularly impressed. Donuts are ok, I’m just picky about them…I would have to pick scones as my favourite though…I actually can’t remember the last time I made any, I may have to make some up soon.

    Happy Monday love! <3

  • Krista @ Tiny n Fit

    Froyo spoons make the froyo taste even better in my opinion!! And whew, 30 mins for guac? You’re a trooper!

    I usually hit Starbucks because it’s on the way to work. And lately DD coffee has not tasted good at all! I don’t really have any specific gym bag. I don’t really like breakfast pastries but I would choose donut over croissant. I have no idea what color my bridesmaids dresses will be. I actually like the classy black dress look- and every girl wear a different style.

    Happy Monday!

  • disqus_RcGgtnAKv3

    I love Starbucks and I have a Keurig, so I “brew” coffee about 4 times a week

    I don’t carry any bags

    Croissant! And a croissant :)

    I want my bridesmaid dresses to be purple

    I love purple and yellow; I’m cheerful and intellectual and powerful ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • http://lisalately.com/ Lisa

    I meant to say we need to e-mail once again because I need to know if you plan on going to HLS ๐Ÿ˜‰
    That JCrew dress looks gorgeous on you! I’m jealous over the fact you can wear yellow. I think my paleness probably doesn’t help in that department
    I’ve never been a donuts person either. I could go with the whole donut thing not being the new cupcake…I’ll take the cupcake or a muffin:)
    Shut. the. front. door. I am in love with that tea set!!! I need that asap.
    Seriously, though.
    I would also like that baked spaghetti squash and cheese. Yum.
    Obviously my go to coffee shop is Starbucks. Surprised, aren’t you?
    Looove you!

  • http://chelseashealthykitchen.com/ Chelsea’s Healthy Kitchen

    I actually don’t have a go-to coffee shop… my favourite coffee is the brand I brew at home! It has a really smooth mellow flavour, whereas I find most coffee shop coffees are way too strong for me!

    LOVE that bag – so cute! I have a Lululemon gym bag too and it’s pretty good, but I wish it had a separate compartment for shoes and a water bottle holder. I like that it’s really roomy though.

    Mmm yes I love croissants. Back in grade 12 my French teacher would buy my class croissants every single Friday – it was the best!

    Yellow looks so good on you! And that dress is gorgeous. I have no idea what colour I want my bridesmaid dresses to be… maybe a light spring green? Is it weird that I’m a girl and I haven’t really thought too much about my future wedding yet? ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Gina Topley

    Since we haven’t had a chance to make a real life frozen yogurt date happen quite yet (hopefully someday!), I will have to settle for internet chatting. First off, I totally feel your pain about Ebay bidding wars, I have definitely got caught in a few intense one myself. I adore that Lulu bag though! I was watching the Prancercise video with my boss at my internship and somehow it ended up on the company’s FB page and Twitter haha. My favorite coffee shops are the cute little obscure one that serve almond milk! I am so much more productive with an almond milk chai in hand.

  • Sally

    I have never heard of cronuts…must try! Hope they’re a lot better than donuts (not a fan). I’m a yellow girl too…but I think it looks better on you! :)

  • Melissa @ Mouthwatering Morsel

    I always get sprinkles too!! because of the colorfulness! it makes me so happy! haha cute dress and def looks amazing with them boots! still hoping one day I can buy a pair for myself!! no fakes ones. ๐Ÿ˜› I believe all local coffee usually tastes super better than starbucks. but sometimes it’s easier to go through that drive thru. And I cannot believe I just found you on Instagram. I will be liking EVERYTHING. Be prepared. Hope this week goes well for you! :)

  • http://www.runningwithspoons.com/ Amanda @ .running with spoons.

    I just can’t help but smile when I read your posts, Sara – they’re always full of so many wonderful things! And it doesn’t hurt when they start with a big picture of sprinkles, either ๐Ÿ˜‰ First of all, the dress looks fabulous on you, and I’m glad that you’re liking the St. Tropez ๐Ÿ˜€ Second… a cronut?! Seeing as I’m a huge fan of both donuts and croissants, I’d be all over that. But I have to agree with you that cinnamon buns would be the way to go. And when it comes to brewing my own coffee, I’m lazy and take the Via route as well, but then I make up for it with a nice dry capp from Bux :)

  • Sophia

    You glow in yellow- bellissimo! I think you make the perfect coffe date :) my go to is a tiny coffee shop on the beach at Portofino- my childhood friends papa owns it! I carry a little brown men’s messenger bag- I love it though, I found it in an antique shop in Florence- I like to believe it belonged to a great poet or unknown scholar of old lol. Croissant all the way! It’s my favourite breakfast pastry too. Although a napoleon is also fantastic. Ooh I’d love to attend your wedding lol it sounds as if it will be very tastefull and beautiful! I’m not sure about my wedding- I fluctuate from wanting a casual romantic beach party to a wild mountain retreat in the snow- whatever feels right at the time and colours that suit my prospective husband and I, I suppose lol! My favourite colour is green, green if the trees, Green of the grass- I love nature and want to see it protected and loved :) Would love to share a real frozen yoghurt date with you (I’ve never had frozen yogurt!) much love and enjoy the wedding (you look perfecto) lots if love Sophia

    • Sophia

      New phone quirks- of the trees, lots of love obviously :)
