Ryan is taking my mom and me out for a Mother’s Day brunch on Sunday, but he’s keeping the location a surprise, which is pretty much the only way to improve on brunch! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there, and have a lovely weekend everyone!

Oh Happy Day launched a party shop!

Congrats to Jordan and Joanna on their blog redesigns – they both look amazing!

Caroline and I took a little trip to Japantown yesterday on the hunt for these candies. (We found a couple, but I just love the way this whole box looks!)

This book appeals to my introverted tendencies.

Love the color of these happy little pins.

The weather has been so nice, I haven’t been at the computer as much, so just a few links this week. Have a wonderful weekend!

What are your plans for the weekend? We’re keeping it low key around here (per usual), trying out more recipes from the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook (can you say crack pie?) and heading to the grand re-opening of a neighborhood park. Which is pretty much my perfect weekend!

These DIY prize ribbons are just delightful.

Haunting portraits of abandoned places.

Okay children of the eighties… did you ever watch Star Fairies?

Funny out-of-office auto replies.

How darling is this circus cake topper?!

I wear the same 6 things all the time, but the capsule wardrobe concept interests me nonetheless. Related: why this art director wears the same thing to work every day.

The 200-pound turban. Fascinating.

The awful reign of the Red Delicious apple.

I love this little lunch tote!

I’m pretty sure I have the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe, but this one looks like it’s worth trying.

I managed to come down with a cold while we were on our trip to Mississippi – I think that makes three colds in the last two months. Enough already! I’m cheering myself up with lots of baby snuggles (she’s sick too) and entirely too much television. Hopefully I’ll be healthy again on the other side of the weekend, but in the meantime, some lovely links for your Friday.

There’s no mayonnaise like my mayonnaise.

How fun is this mystery soda machine?!

This pom pom jacket is wild!

Finally decided on a some sunglasses to replace the favorite pair that I lost.

Hubby and baby and I are off to the Delta for Juke Joint! Though it’s really just a wonderful excuse to see friends we haven’t seen in far too long, and to meet their little ones for the first time. I can’t wait! Links are a bit light this week because instead of browsing the interwebs, I’ve been trying to pack up everything I can possibly think of to keep Caroline occupied on our journey to Mississippi…

I just never get tired of balloons.
