I have to confess something silly: sometimes I feel self-conscious about writing these weekend posts, because my weekend plans sound pretty boring. They usually involve hanging out with my hubby, reading, cooking, housework, going for a walk – nothing fancy. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I feel like if I’m going to share it with you, I should have something exciting lined up, you know?! So, since I don’t have anything particularly note-worthy going on this weekend… what are you up to? How do you make the most of your days off?

Happy Friday! What are your plans for this holiday weekend? We’ll be joining some family friends at their house for an Easter brunch, but otherwise I think we’ll have a pretty low-key weekend. I’m working on some things for Snippet & Ink that I can’t tell you about just yet, but that’s probably going to be how I spend at least part of my weekend. The rest of the time I might have to finish The Hunger Games trilogy (you can admit it – I know I’m not the only one who is loving these books)…

And now, some links for your weekend!

We didn’t bring home a puppy yet, but I’m still drooling over Frenchies.

Have a happy weekend, lovelies!

My honey doesn’t have to work today, and I think we’re going to look at puppies! I’m not sure if we’ll come home with one just yet, but we’ve been talking about getting a dog for the longest time. I really want a French bulldog (have you seen my cuteness pins lately?), but I’m not sure that’s in the stars for us, so we figured it would be a good idea to start by visiting some local shelters. I’ll keep you posted!

I’ve been feeling kind of crummy lately, so I think this rainy weekend I’m going to do my best to take care of myself by unplugging, curling up with a good book (or a self help book, whatevs), and drinking some hot chocolate. And snuggling with my kitty if she’ll let me. What do you do for yourself when you’re feeling less than great?

Happy weekend, lovelies! I’m not gonna lie: I’m still going through Paris withdrawals nearly a week later. My preferred mode of procrastination this week has been browsing HomeAway for Parisian apartments, and creating a Paris Pinterest board of favorite things from my trip. Fortunately, other people love Paris as much as I do, so a few of this week’s links are a little francophiliac…

Pop-up city books.

Gray and celadon makes reminds me a little of Petit Trianon.
