90s Flashback Flannel and Rain Boots

I'm writing this post on the heels of a lovely weekend, and I'm struggling to find the inspiration to talk about my outfit--an outfit I wore Saturday for errand-running in the rain and family hang-out time. Instead, I thought I'd list a few things that are currently making me happy, and I'd love to hear some of the things on your happy list as well.

Making me happy right now...

  • This crazy soft flannel shirt from American Eagle. It's called "ahh-mazingly soft" for a reason! I almost returned it because I wasn't sure a flannel shirt was my style, but I'm glad I kept it; it's been the perfect cozy layer for weekend days. 
  • A date day! Aaron and I got our previously canceled date day in thanks to my dad and step-mom watching the kids. We had fun going to brunch and then having a cocktail or two while enjoying some rare, uninterrupted conversation. We didn't have to answer any questions about Legos, Spider-Man, or whether anyone could have a snack. Wonderful. 
  • Having a go-to Friday restaurant. We don't go out to eat every Friday, but when we can there's a pizza place nearby that has a great happy hour. It's a bar so we don't have to worry about the kids being too loud, and we can all enjoy pizza (and a glass of wine or a cocktail for the grown-ups) and relax, all without spending too much money. 
  • These rain boots from Target. Heck, I'm just happy to need rain boots instead of snow boots right now! I have a feeling the snow isn't over, but I do like these boots for both rainy days and that slushy period when the snow is a melty mess. These were inexpensive, comfortable, and look a lot like regular ankle boots so I don't feel awkward wearing them to work. 
  • More muffins! I can't seem to get enough muffins for breakfast--it's such an easy crowd-pleaser. I made a batch of these Power Muffins over the weekend (a few without chocolate chips for Violet... hard to believe we're related) and now we have breakfast all week. Yum.
