weedend recap

this past weekend was one of the best, most productive ones i can remember having in a long time & i'd love to share what composed of my eventful, history-making, life changing, inspiring last couple of days:

beginning our saturday at coffeehouse cafe with a doubleshot latte swirled into perfection
i love being surrounded by "feel good" items, such as this old (but working!) coffee "syphon" of sorts, newspapers & exposed brick
breath-taking views from my friend's balcony.
jaw. dropped.
 dallas skyline from the "oakcliff side" of town
this beautiful, whimsical thing is margaret hunt hill bridge.
my friend, Lo, & i participated in "yoga on the bridge" hosted by all out! where they were trying to set a Guinness World Record for the world's largest yoga chain. it was a super cool experience!
 surreal surroundings
so dek & i bought a new car this weekend!
i loved dekel's car so much that he gave me his & he is the proud owner of this cute little car below. 
 sunday morning was spent enjoying brunch with a view of lake lewisville, my mom gifted us a groupon to sneaky pete's back for christmas & we've been meaning to go! it was buffet style, delicious and a great way to start our drizzly day. after brunch, we went to check out at home's lewisville location. the store is beautiful & really has everything you would ever want or need PLUS more! little insider scoop: our average customer spends 2+ hours in our store shopping, so take your latte with ya when you go ;)
 after home decor shopping, i met my partners at starbucks for our weekly coffee master meeting, where we compared two reserve coffees, french pressed, side by side. we paired each coffee with a different pastry, but i love the compare/contrast element of our tastings, as only by doing so am i able to describe what i taste. and really, when you pair coffee with food, it makes a world of difference! 
 me at marshall's trying on some professional looks, slowly but surely adding sophisticated pieces to my wardrobe so i can dress the part as marketing coordinator! loving it!
ps- this jacket came home with me. in love.

thanks for reading & have a wonderful week!
share some highlights of your weekend below, i'd love to hear!

we ascended to ascension

dek & i ventured to a new-to-us coffee shop in the middle of the beautiful dallas design district yesterday and loved it! it's on oaklawn and they specialize in craft espresso beverages and pour-over coffees. they are serious about what they do and passion is the name of their game. the vibes were great and the coffee phenomenal!

with the first sip of my latte, i was able to taste the sweet micro-foam with hints of lemon and deep espresso. it was delicious! we both had lattes, but next time i will go crazy and order their cortado

weather outside was freezing, so i was all layered up in my peacoat, scarf and booties, but we had a wonderful saturday. hope you have a great weekend, as well!
