This should be a fun weekend – crazy music bonanza happening right down the street, friend in town for a visit, cupcakes with Karen Wise, and hopefully a chance for some down time with my honey. Oh, and some really awesome links for you!

Super excited about Lonny.

Have I told you how much I heart suspenders?

Utterly smitten with the flowers at this wedding.

I think it’s safe to say it now: donuts are the next big wedding trend (and I’m totally okay with that).

Loving this alternative to a veil – modern and vintage at the same time.

Now that my honey is working crazy hours, I have a whole new appreciation for my weekends with him. Even if they don’t include much more than trying a new taco place and watching episodes of Arrested Development in our jammies. How do you like to spend your lazy weekends? Maybe browsing some of these awesome links (this list seems to get longer every week)…

Today’s inspiration board just isn’t working for me – not sure what it is, but it’s just not ready to make it’s debut. I’ll have that inspiration board for you tomorrow. Meantime, I hope you enjoy these links!

Made this for my honey’s birthday yesterday – it was perfect with blackberries.

It’s gray, ruffled, gorgeous

Happy birthday parties!

If I hadn’t just bought a new table, I’d definitely go for the chalkboard look.

Perfect gift for the plaid lover.

Not that I’m ready for 2010 or anything, but I do love this calendar.

My honey’s parents are in town this weekend, so we’ll be doing our best to show them a good time here in Austin – which will of course involve lots of eating. It has finally cooled down to the point where we can turn off the AC and open up the doors and windows, so I hope it stays that way at least while they’re here. Any fun plans for you all this weekend? This is sort of a marathon list of links, so I hope you’ve got a little time…

With a day of rain, it’s even starting to feel like fall here in Austin! Not too much planned for this weekend, maybe a movie and some tacos (of course). Maybe a little day trip that involves antique stores and (fingers crossed) finding the perfect seating for our new table. What about you? Any plans for this first fall weekend? How about some fun links from around the web this week?

Un-wedding, via Ritzy Bee.

I want to throw a Mad Tea Party.

How about table letters instead of table numbers? Maybe with these? Or these?

I really love stamps. And more stamps.

Brilliant advice. I mean, just brilliant.
