Taking Stock | 0817

It’s been over a year since my last Taking Stock update, so I’m doing a grrreat job of keeping up with this “monthly” series. (*Palm to forehead*) I always enjoy looking back on these posts as little snapshots in time, so let’s bring it back! Making : a mess in the kitchen as I try to get back into making healthy, home-cooked meals. Sometimes I forget how much I love to cook, and after months of surviving…

    Making : snapchat stories with behind-the-scenes peeks at the flower shop, my favorite style and beauty stuff, and lots of Doak updates. ;)  Username: keiralennox Drinking : bucketfuls of iced tea in my Corkcicle tumbler. It keeps ice frozen for 9+ hours, and I don’t go anywhere without it lately. Watching : a lot of YouTube beauty vlogs. I love to pour a glass of wine at night and watch makeup and skincare tutorials and reviews. It’s a…

Making : progress on our flower shop move to-do list. We’re less than two months out, and besides a refrigeration guy telling me our old walk-in cooler may not survive another relocation (awesome) it’s all coming up roses. Hoping : someone’s selling a decent walk-in cooler on Craigslist… Baking : #pumpkineverything! I love this recipe for pumpkin muffins with dark chocolate chips; and I just bookmarked these healthy breakfast cookie recipes to try this weekend. Reading : Bette Davis’ autobiography, The…

Making : an effort to wake up earlier, give myself time to enjoy mornings, and start the day less groggy/frazzled. Cooking : pre-made frozen gourmet dinners from a local caterer (best idea ever). I buy a week’s worth of meals at a time, stock them in the freezer, and pop them in the oven after work. If you have a local service like this, ohmygosh, do it. Drinking : lots of fruit smoothies, in lieu of the milkshakes I really…

  • Our blooming crepe myrtle + pink sunset skies. 💕
She was just a little baby tree when we planted her by our front window 13 summers ago, and now she’s as tall as the roof! #crepemyrtle #ihavethisthingwithpink #acolorstory #summernights
  • To file under Unexpected Wardrobe Staples: a snake print duster; I found this one at @topbuttons last month and put it in my #30x30remix as a wildcard. I wore it for the first time yesterday, and now I’m totally on-board the kimono/duster/light-and-easy-layering-layering-piece train! #ootd #instastyle #whatiwore #shoplocal
  • Hey, girl! 👋🏻 We have a handful of these hand-painted face vases available at @lasaterflowers that are perfect for fresh flowers, succulents, or even a catch-all bowl for keys and hair ties. (We all have one of those somewhere in our home; it may as well be cute. 😉) #floraldesign #shopsmall #summerblooms #flashesofdelight
  • I jumped on board with @kendieveryday’s #30x30remix! For the next month, I’ll mix-and-match 30 pieces from my wardrobe into 30 weekday outfits and share them in weekly roundups on the blog.

My first week of remixed outfits + my thoughts on the challenge are in today’s post at keiralennox.com. 👖

  • Back to work after a relaxing weekend! But with *zero* tan to show for it; I’m never not fully-shaded and SPF’ed, wearing a giant sun hat and some kind of mumu situation on a beach.
☀️😂 👵🏼
  • Found our new favorite beach getaway spot this weekend! 🌴 #lovefl
