Tomorrow I’m having some of my favorite ladies over for brunch, but I haven’t quite solidified the menu yet – any suggestions? It’s a belated birthday celebration for one of them, so anything I make has to be delicious. What are you up to this weekend? Share your plans in the comments, along with your favorite brunch recipes!

This wedding from One Love Photo kills me – that’s the bride playing cello!

Since it would have been Julia Child’s 100th birthday this week, and since I’m seeing her all over my television, I thought this pic was fitting for today. Gosh she was funny!

It’s looking like 88-degrees this weekend, so our friends and they’re two darling kiddos are coming over for a pool day tomorrow. (As I type this, it occurs to me that 88-degrees isn’t actually that hot compared to other parts of the country, but it’s still pool weather, right?) Ryan will be working on perfecting his burgers, and I’ll be working on perfecting eating them. What are you up to this weekend?

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.

These vintage-style social networking posters are pretty clever.

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?

Have a wonderful weekend!
