Weekend + Links


Hi friends!

I'm calling today my Friday and signing off until next Tuesday.  Nick has a really long weekend so I want to totally enjoy that with him and it'll be nice to re-charge a bit on the blogging front.  Anyone else feel like their motivation is lacking in the summer or is that just me?  I'd rather be outside than sitting in front of my computer!

Anyway, we finally have our plans set for the weekend and they're good ones.  Nick's parents will be coming over for a BBQ on Friday, the 4th will be a beach day since the weather is supposed to be gorgeous and then Sunday we're heading to Chicago for the night.  SO excited to be back - it's been since November and that is way, way too long.  

Along with all of this, we will be dog-sitting Remy, a lab mix and our friend from puppy class until Sunday!  We're going to have two 10 month old puppies running wild... I think that will keep us busy, for sure.  We'll also be celebrating Nick's 29th birthday which is on Tuesday so lots of good stuff is in store.

Before I go, here are a few favorite links from around the webs...

+ An easy and seriously delicious looking iced coffee recipe - with one special ingredient!
+ How to perfect the cat-eye look.  I've had a lot of luck using this eyeliner.
+ Little Blonde Book is one of my newest favorite bloggers.  From style to beauty, Taylor is on point.
+ 8 websites to find affordable and adorable art work.
+ These stackable turquoise rings... all the heart eyes.
+ I'm making Nick's birthday cake and this chocolate cake recipe claims to be the best (ever).  We will see!

Enjoy your weekends and be safe!!
