friday I’m in love.

{one} gap relaxed henley.

{via Gap}

in my attempt to re-haul my wardrobe a bit this summer, I picked up this henley from the Gap. right now I still need things that are nursing-friendly & this one definitely fits the bill. plus, it is nice to feel a little more dressed up when I pair this with shorts or jeans (than just a tee).

{two} kismet rug.

I am dying for a new rug for our living room. so much so that I apologize to people who visit because they have to see our current rug. it’s too small, it’s not good quality, & it’s pretty ugly. I have been eyeing a few neutral-ish rugs at West Elm (big surprise!) but haven’t pulled the trigger on any (I am horrible at making decisions & an 8 by 10 rug is not cheap). but them I was perusing Caitlin Wilson’s shop page & found this Kismet rug. It is completely different than anything I have been looking at, & while it is a little bit feminine (read: hot pink), I think it would work really well! so now I am dreaming about it… anyone have $1600 they want to share?

{three} taco tuesdays.

Corn & Chile Salsa

{Corn & Chile Tomato-Less Salsa from Trader Joe’s}

in an effort to help simplify the meal-planning process each week (I plan & grocery shop once a week!) we have started a regular taco tuesday which is great because aaron & I both LOVE mexican food, it is easy to make vegetarian if we don’t want meat, & it is eloise-friendly so I don’t have to make a separate meal. even if you have a few tacos, it is nice to have a side to help make sure you aren’t hungry in an hour (or is that just me?). our new favorite side dish is roasted yams, black beans, & corn salsa. I just dice up two yams, roast in the toaster oven until soft, & then mix the yams with a rinsed can of black beans, & a few spoonfuls of corn salsa. it is awesome & super easy! on the topic, I found these hand-made style tortillas from La Tortilla Factory a few weeks ago & am obsessed. seriously, I buy them two packs at a time! they are small, but a little bit chewy, thick, warm up well, & don’t fall apart once you start rolling.

what are you loving this week? also, how is it possible that today is the LAST day of july?!
