Making Good Mondays [part two]

In case you didn’t know this already…I love flowers.  (As seen here.)

Another thing I loveeeee lately is the link-up hosted by Brooklyn called Making Good Mondays.  Mondays aren’t always the best, everybody knows that… but we are reclaiming our Mondays by doing something great for someone in our life each week!

The first week I participated I wrote a unique (but awesome) letter to an old friend.  This week the challenge was again, right up my alley…

Buy flowers for someone!

So, with this challenge in mind, I thought of the perfect person… my dear friend Stacey. 

Stacey is one of my favorite people in the whole wide world.  We met in college and became instant friends…we even lived together for our last semester of college.  We’ve experienced a lot together…

My first sushi experience…


Many trips to Olive Garden while her boyfriend (now husband) worked there…


Lots of special occasions to dress up… (including many Halloweens, an 80’s anniversary party, and one random trip to Safeway dressed as gangsters?)




aaaaand not to mention both of our weddings…


Basically, she’s one of my very best friends! 

Stacey has owned her own little coffee shop now for a year and I am soooo proud!!  It has always been her dream, and she is doing so great at running it!  She just had her one year anniversary party at the shop and I was extremely bummed to not be able to make it.

Luckily, we had plans to meet up a few days later and catch up… I knew this was the perfect occasion for my Monday goal!  I headed out to the farmer’s market for some flowers.


Can you believe this gorgeous bundle was only $7?! I love the farmer’s market most for its flowers.  I brought a card to go with them, but could not for the life of me find a pen—this turned out to be an ok thing because it just forced me to tell Stacey in person how insanely proud I am of her.

Unfortunately I failed at blogging and didn’t snap a picture of her with the flowers… I did however snap this gem…


Us with our $5 happy hour margs.

Priorities, people. :)

Hope you’ll join us by linking up for next Monday’s challenge!
