Friday Favorites: Instagram Lately

In regards to our last post, even though it's Week 1, hope you all catch some sleep this weekend!
I'm so excited the weekend is here.  My crazy schedule has finally slowed down for a bit and I am so excited to get some "me time!"  The only things on my schedule this weekend are things I want to do, not a single obligation.  It's been a long time since I've been able to say that and I'm pumped!
Enough about that, let's dive into my favorites.  It's been a while since I've done an Instagram dump, so here are some of my favorites from recently!
Last week, DG and I finally had a night where it wasn't too humid, and we got to enjoy dinner on our screened in porch.  One of the major features that attracted us to our house was that porch and we are still just as smitten with it now.
Winston and I still enjoy silent snuggle time in the morning while Gizmo runs around like something crazy with whatever toy he took to bed with him the night before.
And every pillow in our house has to get Gizmo's approval (proof).

I've really been feeling Paris.  I bought an antique Parisian key necklace when I was in Atlanta to remind me to stop spending so much money on material item so we can go to Europe next summer.  That Paris theme spilled over Sunday morning when I was planning for August.

Sunday night, DG & I headed to Raleigh for a long-overdue dinner at Poole's Diner.  Poole's is seriously the only restaurant I've ever been to with DG that when I asked how he meal is he doesn't say "It was good, but it could have been better if..."
I'm still wearing this watermelon shirt on repeat.  And with Monday being National Watermelon Day, I figured what better way to celebrate than with my favorite watermelon shirt, new May Designs book, and my favorite summertime beverage.
