Happy Friday! And perhaps more importantly, Happy National Doughnut Day! Anyone partake in a particularly delicious doughnut (donut?) today?
It’s been a busy week around our little nest. I had an evening work commitment Wednesday, and J flew off to Florida yesterday for a four-day conference. Since J will be away, my BFF Krista is coming to keep me company! I’m really looking forward to our weekend. Since I left Pittsburgh three years ago, the majority (if not all…?) of our visits have been centered around some life event – bridal and baby showers, weddings, bachelorette parties, etc. As awesome as those events are, it will be nice to just have a weekend together to catch up without the distractions.
But anyway, let’s get on with the weekend! Here’s Fit for a Friday – a compilation of musings, findings, and favorite links I’ve stumbled across in the past week.
Um, Nom. I’m a sucker for a good scone, but these aren’t just scones, these are S’MORE SCONES. I can’t think of anything better to pair with my Sunday coffee.
I love going through all the great entries in “The 10th Annual Smartest Coolest Homes” Contest. The spaces are all so unique and fun, and I have been getting great inspiration. One concept I can totally get behind: less is more. I like that small spaces require you to get rid of the clutter and truly appreciate everything you have. Less is more. Except when it comes to shoes. And cupcakes. In those cases, more is always better.
On the same note of Apartment Therapy’s Small Cool contest, this article from The Washington Post gives some awesome ways to utilize console tables in a small home. I also love the use of the chest of drawers next to the sofa as shown in the picture below. Storage is key in a little nest, and I could definitely see us copying this in the future.

Enjoy the weekend, friends! xx
