Insta-Friday.

What have my iPhone and I been up to this week?
Are you dying to know, or what?
My uniform?
Wife beaters, ribbed tanks.
Not a day goes by that I don't wear at least one.  A cardigan and dress is usually involved too, but the tanks and I are never apart.
Formerly my love was from Old Navy, but this year they made them a little shorter and a lot weirder.  So we broke up and I found a new love in the Target tanks.  I loooove them.  Love.  They treat me so much better than Old Navy's new version.  Plus they are sooooo soft.  Adios Old Navy.

You know when you hear so much hype about a place, that you are skeptical?  Then such place comes to your town but it has an ugly font for a logo and is in a super creepy shopping plaza?  Even more reasons to not like it, right?
But then your friend Mique promises, promises, promises that you will not only like it but love it.  You hesitantly agree to meet her there to test it for yourself.
She was right.  I liked it.  A lot a lot a lot a lot.  Since that day, I can't count the number of frequent diner cards that I have filled up.
Darn you Cafe Rio and your lame font and strange real estate choice.  I love you.  Your pellet ice, your really good iced tea and your addictive barbacoa salad.  Which I wish I was eating right this very second.

Any other family go through four pounds of strawberries in two days?  I can't stop eating them.  I can't resist the low seasonal prices.  Especially if Nutella is involved.

 I have been too lazy to change the dumb yellow nail polish, but thanks to these sunshiny (HIDEOUSLY UNCOMFORTABLE) Target shoes, for one day I didn't completely hate it.  But I still think aqua would be cuter.

Napping kids + mason jars + Rustoleum spray paint.
It's on.

 Mother's day tea party at school.  Tears were involved.  Happy tears.  So happy.

 My salsa loving, chip devouring, taco hating, senorita pequena, hopes you had a fun Cinco de Mayo.

 The rainbow results of my date with spray paint.  All ready to go for tomorrow's brunch.  I'm in love.

I have been so, so, so, so good on adhering to my no Diet Poison boycott.  So good.  But this goateed southerner lured me in with his fountain of icy goodness.  Jerk.

Enough about me.  What have you been up to this week?  Every camera phone has a story to tell.

  4. Thank You! I thought it was just me. The Old Navys fit weird now.I switched to the Target T's last year. I like that the backs are a little lower for summer time. And I also wear at least one...under another T or something else...every.single.day.

  5. Even though my attempt at the mason jars were drippier than I would have liked, they were a big hit! Everyone loved them! Love, love aqua and berry pink! It was perfect for the Sleeping Beauty party! I'm officially a spray paint convert! ;)

  8. This post is so up my alley! I also LOVE the Target tanks and find myself wearing one almost every day. They were great throughout my pregnancy too, since they are super long.

    Also, I LOVE Cafe Rio. We were a little hesitant to try i since it is in less-than-prime location but once we tried it, we were hooked! My 2-year-old now requests that we go and he yells "extra cheese!!" every time we order.

  9. I think the best part of your week was the switch fro Old Navy tanks to Target tanks...I was so glad to read that I wasn't the only one to think Old Navy's fit/shape has gotten weird. I love the Target tees and tanks this year.

  12. I love your posts about your week. I went to Queen Bee last night and I missed seeing you. I hope you can come next time.

    PS I love Cafe Rio too. Try their pork barbacoa Burrito with black beans, rice and hot sauce and have it enchilada style. You will thank me later...lol

  13. Love your insta-friday posts :) yup we go through strawberries at a ridiculous rate, 2nd to cuties since my youngest eats ummm..pretty much nothing except those two things! haha
    I tried on those shoes at Target and knew they would sit in my closet but I still want them! ;)I would LOVE to try Cafe Rio, but I'm sure it'll be 2021 before it comes to central CA!

  14. I tried to talk myself into the aqua Target flats yesterday, and I just couldn't get past the discomfort factor. Boo! I really wanted them. =(

  20. I don't know you but I found you a while back and you are very inspiring. I just had to laugh today though. Cafe Rio is something that started where I live in Utah. It is hilarious how addictive it can be. That sweet pork is trouble. I am glad that you caved and had some because really everyone should experience it's yumminess. The Pork tostada is fab on a corn tortilla and it is smaller than the salad. LOVE IT. Ha, I can't believe it is Cafe Rio that has me finally posting a comment on your blog. Thank you for the great posts. You truly have a gift of touching the soul.

  21. I found your blog through Carissa at lowercase letters. I love your blog. It's so inspires me to follow crafty creative people, as I am not! I started posting my weekly Instagram shots on Fridays as well. Do you do a link up where I could join you? Blessings!

  22. Ugh I want your pretty yellow shoes AND painted Mason jars!

  23. Oh, if you love the tanks at Target, you need to try the v-neck tees. I wear those every day. So comfy! My rule of thumb is, if you can't get it at Target, you probably don't need it! :o) Aqua polish is a favorite for sure, buy my new fave is my raspberry pink that I'm currently sporting!

  24. That should have been TOLD YOU SO. Ha!

  25. Are you bummed every time you get another email saying you got a comment. And then it's just me again?

  26. So, I spray painted a dozen mason jars and some of them have paint scratched off from putting them back in the box. Does this happen to you? How do I avoid it?

  27. Julie! Critical question! I am going to try and spray paint some jars this weekend - do you spray the inside only? Or outside only? Or both? I definitely need to know your technique!!
