Happy Friday! I hope everyone has some fun and/or relaxing weekend plans ahead. Here are a few links I’ve been loving from around the web this week.

Kate Spade Saturday for West Elm
West Elm and Kate Spade Saturday launched their collaboration this week and basically created the home collection of my dreams. I’m already trying to figure out a way to fit the Retro WingChair into my decor budget. (J, ignore that last sentence.)

12 Kitchen Looks Expected To Be Big In 2015
Open shelving, gorgeous wood textures, and modern traditional style would create my ideal kitchen space.

Dawww… Also, this is pretty much how I get through the snow too…

Single Lady 5-Minute Gooey Molten Chocolate Mug Cake
This looks delicious, even for us not-so-single ladies.

Have a great weekend, friends! xx

Fit for a Friday

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a great week! It’s been a busy one around here, but as of this evening J and I will officially be in vacation-mode for the next nine days. Can.not.wait. To kick off your weekend, here’s Fit for a Friday – a compilation of musings, findings, and favorite links I’ve stumbled across in the past week.

This picture story has gone absolutely viral over the last week, so you’ve probably already seen it. In the chance that you haven’t – click with caution. While sitting on the couch the other evening J was scrolling through his phone and says, “Oh this is really sad, but it’s nice – you should read it.” Within seconds, I was SOBBING. Mind you, I cry pretty easily, but this story is exactly what it tells you it is, “beautiful and utterly heartbreaking.”

I listened to the kids play off in the distance. And thought about my two babies at home. I loved protecting them.{via}

Oh my gahh. As if I didn’t already love Uber enough! Please make this a regular thing!

How cute are those white flowers in the colored water? So fun!

This piece spoke to me perfectly. I have been so many women already in my short time, and I know I will continue to evolve into many more women to come. I’ve been rebellious, I’ve been restless, I’ve been a good partner, and I’ve even been a bad partner. I’ve been a daughter, a sister, a friend to many, and a used-to-be friend to as many more. All I can hope is that in my roles to come I choose to be kind, loving as a wife, and content with whoever I am. Definitely a nice read for a woman at any stage of her life.

Well friends, that’s all I’ve got for today. Things will be quiet around here over the next week while I enjoy some much needed R&R, so have a great week and I’ll catch up with you soon! xx

Fit for a Friday

Happy almost-weekend! I don’t know about you guys, but this week has been a rough one around here. Perhaps it was the gray clouds and daily rainstorms, or maybe just a mid-month slump, but the days were definitely dragging. Unfortunately my week isn’t quite over – I have a work event on Saturday – but I’m still grateful for the weekend and some downtime with J. Hopefully that downtime also includes some ice cream or fro-yo, just sayin’. Here’s this week’s Fit for a Friday – a compilation of musings, findings, and favorite links I’ve stumbled across in the past week.

This is a great outline of some basics everyone starting out needs to make their first home actually feel like home. Funny story re: Wine Bottle Opener. The one we currently own and love actually came from one of J’s neighbors when he lived in the outskirts of Pittsburgh. We picked up a bottle right after he moved not even thinking about the cork, and he ended up knocking on his neighbor’s door in hopes of borrowing an opener. The lady who answered handed over a very new looking 3-piece set and insisted he keep it because she never drinks. In retrospect, the poor woman was probably just terrified by the strange man at her door. Sidenote – if you actually know J, you know he is pretty much the least intimidating guy around. Just don’t try to steal a fry off his plate.

Brown sugar buttermilk cake? Fluffy white chocolate frosting? Salty macadamia nuts? This cake sounds like perfection. I also love that the presentation actually looks like something I am capable of accomplishing (no triple-layered ombre frosted cakes for this gal.) Now I just need an excuse to make it!White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cake.. A simple brown sugar buttermilk cake with white chocolate frosting, topped with salty Macadamia Nuts!

You’re welcome. ❤

Anything awesome you’ve seen around the web this week? Have a great weekend, friends!

You go, girl! All the lessons are great, but I especially love 4, 9, 12, 19, 24, 37, and 39.

"Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't wait for a special occasion, today is special."

In an effort to avoid spoilers, I’ll keep this as short as possible. SUCH a good episode. I’m amazed how full-circle the series can go in just 7 episodes, and I can’t wait to see how they wrap it up in 2015.

Also, how amazing was the wardrobe in this episode!? Everyone looked really great, but Betty in particular stood out to me in her handful of scenes. She had some fab dresses, and how cute was that little daisy shell she was wearing in the kitchen? I’ve officially added this top from Boden to my Wardrobe Wishlist.

Baby goat! “If we could live happy & healthy lives without harming others…. why wouldn’t we?”

Such a girl crush. Mindy rocks.

This post from one of my favorite bloggers convinced me I need popsicle molds, ASAP. Strawberry Basil Pops are most definitely happening in my near future. So easy! So fresh!

Q – Why don’t cats play poker in the jungle?  A – Too many cheetahs!

… I’m the worst. Have a great weekend, friends!
