Happy weekend to all of you, and Happy Birthday to my little sister! She is my best friend in the world, and I wish we were closer together and could see each other more often. She also makes the best eclairs and scones I’ve ever had (which is only part of why I wish we lived closer). So on that delicious note, I’ll leave you all with this pic of donuts and birthday candles, and some fun links for your weekend.

Itsy bitsy beautiful pottery.

Calligraphy starter kit.

Adorable couple (the puppy’s pretty cute, too).

If Monet had a business card.

One last thing before I head out for the weekend. Unfortunately, because of some exceptionally rude comments recently, I’ve decided to disallow anonymous comments for right now. Everyone is certainly entitled to having their own opinions, but I’m afraid there’s no room on Snippet & Ink for comments that are hurtful or otherwise rude to people who have kindly shared their weddings with us, and allowing anonymous comments seems to inspire more bad manners than when folks are required to sign their names. Thankfully, it’s a small minority, and in case I don’t say it enough, thanks so much to all of you who are always so thoughtful. Have a happy happy weekend, lovelies!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding was on last night – how did I forget about that movie?! I’m amending my list from last week and adding it. Definitely a top ten wedding movie. Which ones would be on your list? Hope everyone has fun weekend plans – taking mom out to brunch? Mom, if I was there to take you to brunch, I promise I would! Happy weekend and Happy Mother’s Day, lovelies, and I hope you enjoy these fun links from around the web!

I’ve been thinking about Monday’s post, which I think conveyed my feeling about the parts of wedding planning that are crazymaking and emotionally exhausting. But honestly, a lot of it has been wonderful and even fun. So in addition to some fun weekend links, I thought I’d share some of the things that are helping me to stay sane and/or smiling, in no particular order:

– Ignoring anyone who tells me being a bride is all about the little details.
– Making decisions for ourselves and our families and not for some perceived audience.
Jim and Pam’s wedding (this clip is missing the part where Jim cuts his tie, but I love that).
Miss Manners’ Guide to a Surprisingly Dignified Wedding.
– Letting our wedding venue and season be a style guide.
A Practical Wedding.
– Remembering what weddings are not.
– La-la-la-love songs.

As I write this I’m sitting here with my honey watching the NFL Draft, and I have to say, I don’t really get it. I mean, I get it, but I don’t get why people want to watch it. Am I missing something? Now the Oreos I’m eating as I watch it? Those I get. Mmmmm…

Some fun links for you to kick off your weekend:

Gosh. There has been so much going on lately, I don’t even know where to start! My honey and I are making another interstate move in just a couple of months, our wedding planning is back in full swing, and then there’s all the fun of tax time (glad that’s over). Lots of good things, but overwhelming, too – you know? Today, we’re off on an early-morning flight to Wisconsin for a cousin’s wedding, but I wanted to leave you with some fun links to kick off the weekend…
