happy sunday everyone!
before i start i want to say one thing - everyone should be treated with basic human rights. if you do not share those beliefs, then you may not like the first part of this post and i ask that you kindly do not follow me any longer here or on social media. i do not mean to be cold, but i only want supportive and and kind followers. thank you for following while you have!
ok, to get on with it…this weekend has been one of the most empowering weekends of my life. as i’m sure you know, yesterday millions gathered to join and march in the women’s marches across the world!! that right there gives me goosebumps. just thinking about how many people stood up and marched for what they believed in is empowering AF. although i did not make it to d.c., tyler and i joined up with my friend rachel and her squad to march for women’s, minorities, and basic. fucking. human. rights. it was SO amazing. i had a lot of reservations and anxiety about even doing the march because being around that many people in a huge city is overwhelming, but after about 2 hours of going back and forth on the matter i put my pantsuit on and said “LET’S FUCKING DO THIS.” tyler was like, “OK!” - reason #33712937129 i love him. when we got to 42nd and 6th, we could hear the wave of happy cheers and i knew this was the right choice. the love and support and power you felt marching in the crowd was indescribable. i didn’t have a sign, but it didn’t matter. marching with some of my bests and loved ones was a great feeling. i am a huge believer in peaceful protests and even more so when they’re about smashing the patriarchy. i don’t care what party you stand with, this march was bigger than us all and i’m so happy to have been a part of it!!
above are some pictures of rachel and i! rachel had a GREAT sign. the other is me in my nasty pantsuit with my “future is female” shirt because, duh. also, you can’t see it but i repped my michelle obama pin on my blazer because i love her to the moon and back.
today, tyler and i pretty much chilled and i finished up some projects around our apartment. i have once again gone into my psycho diy and decor phase and i can’t wait to share pictures!! it just has to be perfect prior to me doing so :) before we relaxed though, we meandered over to the target by us so i could pick up some stuff and about 100 other impulse purchases because what else does one do when they are at target? i have been wanting to remake these zucchini chocolate chip muffins i made a while back. they are SO GOOD. and you don’t feel bad eating them because you are practically eating a vegetable and there is no butter! woo hoo!
as part of the 100 other things i didn’t need from target, i picked up this cake stand from the dollar section (cute.) and this heart garland (ALSO V CUTE) and hearth shaped muffin tins which didn’t really work, but it’s the thought that counts. to be totally honest, i really only like valentine’s day because of the decor that comes with it. :)
if you ask me, that’s a pretty diverse weekend :) hope everyone enjoyed theirs!
