Currently Loving + Weekend Wishes

Lately I've been dreaming about wide open spaces, campfires and toasty smores, an adventurous road trip, and an epic change of pace this summer. I've been caught up in daydreaming about what our next adventure should be, which my heart has been craving, among many other things I can't get enough of.

Here's a little snapshot of what I'm currently loving...

summer in the mountains.


To the latest Of Monsters and Men album released on Tuesday. Can't wait to catch them live in October? Any monster fans out there? This is my favorite song so far...

Is it 5 o'clock yet? I am hitting the open road with my better half to go visit my lifelong besties. They all live where I grew up, so it's always fun to go 'home' and to spend way too much fun giggling with them. Bring on the coffee dates, laughing 'til our sides hurt, and finally being together!

These adorable handmade cards and items from blogger Nicole's amazing Etsy shop. She is the cutest thing ever and I love her whimsical well made creations. Check them out here and use promo code 'LIFEOFMEG' for 10% off your purchase!

This delicious recipe for Blueberry Crumb Pie. Hands down, one of my favorite summertime recipes!

The train wreck that is the Bachelorette. Every year I tell myself I won't watch, and every year I get pulled into the madness.

Of our next adventure. We are currently debating driving the Pac Coast Hwy from mid-California up to Seattle, or venturing out to Big Sky country to hike Grand Teton National Park and take in the gorgeousness at Yellowstone. More to come on that... 

A delicious blackberry lavender snow cone from one of my favorite hidden gems.

I was sitting at a mellow hipster coffee shop, sipping a Spiced Latte in a cozy corner.

"I'm Having So Much Fun Here Without You" by Courtney Maum.
I picked up this book on our way back from Nashville and it's got me hooked. What are you reading? I love suggestions!


What are you currently loving?
Happy weekend, y'all!

    The pacific coast highway is amazing. I drove it so many times when I lived in California because I lived in a beach town and it was just right there. One of my absolute favorite places ever!

  2. I'm reading Wild, which happens to be about the PCH (and the book that the movie was based on). Love that looks beautiful!

  3. I LOVED that book and movie! So so so good! Yes, I just think it would be such an epic trip and we could stop at tons of cities and places along the way!

  4. Oh how amazing - so jealous and hoping I get to experience that! Any recommended stops along the way as we drive? :)

    It depends where you start. I never went the entire stretch, but, Balboa Island is my favorite place to go in California. Laguna beach has lots of super fun shops and Dana Point has some amazing views!

  6. Writing those down right now as I read! Thank you thank you thank you! We are thinking of flying into SF (I used to live there) and driving to Seattle, but I would love to fly into LAX and then see Big Sur, Los Gatos, Monterrey (all my fave places) too!

  7. jessicahesterJune 12, 2015

    I would love to go back and drive further up the coast! All of the places I listed are slightly south of LAX- I lived in San Clemente so I never made it up much further than Newport/Santa Monica.

  8. The Bachelorette is SO good! I've gotten sucked in as well:) Your weekend sounds fantastic! Have a great time, friend!

    Oh you would love big sky country, Montana, the tetons and yellowstone are gorgeous. Imagine swimming and a moose walks up to the pool - true story, happened to my family and I while at yellowstone. Its a memory I'll never forget!

  10. Yes! It's such a dark hole! Still need to watch that show you were telling me about! Have a great weekend, my friend!!

  11. Oh wow - that sounds incredible! Did you guys camp or stay anywhere you would recommend in any of those place?
