Going out for dinner and drinks is one of our coping mechanisms during busy holiday weeks. As much as I love a home-cooked meal, the thought of all that clean-up makes my head spin after a 14-hour day of taking calls, assisting customers, designing, dealing with vendors, and other cat-herding. We quickly re-hash the day, then one of us drops the “okay, no more shop talk,” rule and we continue our evening in business-free bliss.

Working with your partner is one of those things… I have friends who say, “I could never work with my husband/wife all day,” and other friends who run businesses together like us. It can be tricky to balance a work and home life when you’re together 24/7, especially during high-stress times. Sometimes we want to kill each other. But celebrating a victory is so much sweeter when you can share it with your other half!

  7. I work at the same company as my husband, and we love it! It is so great to know each other’s day so well, and be able to carpool and eat lunch together. Your situation is a bit different, but I think we’d love that, too!

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
