I spent way too much time procrastinating this week by looking at real estate websites – we’re not planning on buying a house in the very near future, so it’s really just dreaming, but I can’t help but imagine how my “Decorate” Pinterest board would come to life in these houses! I love our little apartment right now, but some day I hope we can have a sweet old farmhouse with a front porch and oak trees (I have a Pinterest board for that, too). What are your house fantasies (I’m sure I’m not the only one!)?

A family friend shot this beautiful time-lapse video of the night sky, and it seemed to fit with this week’s inspiration board.

Speaking of house fantasies, how about this modern farmhouse?

Or how about this “Cape Dutch” style home?

Have you tried Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter? I wish it didn’t come in a plastic jar, but it has replaced Nutella in my life.

Dreaming of Tuscany with these wedding photos.

These vintage-style social networking posters are pretty clever.

Diamond slice earrings? Wow, via Mrs. French’s Pinterest.

How do a graphic designer and a musician do wedding invites? Just like this.

Congratulations to the lovely Jen Huang!


Have a happy weekend everyone!

Whoa friends! This week just flew by – can you believe it’s nearly August?! What are you up to this weekend? My hubby’s brother is coming to town for a visit, so we’ll be playing host for a few days – always fun to have an excuse to do some of our favorite things and eat at our favorite restaurants. What are your favorite visitor things to do in your home town?

Happy weekend! Despite some foggy days this week, I just bought a new swimsuit for the rest of summer (and yes, my basic black wardrobe extends to swimwear), which I hope to put to some use this weekend. Our friends are coming over for a little cookout – my idea of a perfect summer weekend. What about you? What are y’all up to?

Happy weekend, friends! Any fun plans for your two days off? This weekend I’m trying to reduce my Montana withdrawals by going to a concert with friends – nothing like a little country music to make things better. I should also be working on some fun new projects for Snippet & Ink, but I just got a new book that I’m loving and I have a feeling I might do some procrastinating with that…

Hi friends!  I’m still out of town without much access to internet, but I just wanted to drop in and say hi. Next week will be a short week because of the Fourth of July holiday, but definitely check in for a few really fun posts that I’ve lined up for you while I’m gone.
