After loading a moving truck in the Austin heat and humidity (if my honey is reading this: you’re my hero), and then a three-day drive, we arrived at our new home! Well, our new temporary home – we’re house sitting while my mom is away for the summer, which means we have some time to find our own place (and which also means we’ll be moving all this stuff again, just not as far). Our kitty is exploring everything, and has discovered how fun it is to slide across hardwood floors. I’m working on some great posts for you, but until I can get those finished and posted, here are some awesome links to check out…

My dream honeymoon spot.


Hero supplies for dad.

I’m thinking of going with bangs after the wedding.

This is a little like what our apartment looks like right now, except that it’s not this well styled, and it’s mostly piles of stuff rather than piles of books. (Although thinking about it, books are one of the heaviest things ever, and not particularly fun to move.) This time next week, we’ll be leaving Austin, headed for San Francisco – I can’t wait to be back there! I’m going to do my best with regular posting, and I have some really fun posts to share, but I also have a feeling things might be a little crazy over the next two weeks, so I hope you’ll bear with me. And for now, enjoy these fun links from around the interwebs…

Oh my. Just beautiful.

Have an absolutely wonderful weekend friends! Any fun plans for this first weekend in June?

PS – Today is National Doughnut Day. How are you celebrating?

Last weekend my honey and I went to see Exit Through the Gift Shop, and we both loved it – it’s all about street art, and if you can find it at a local theater, it’s definitely worth checking out. This weekend we get to start the always fun task of packing up our apartment to get ready for our big move. Even though we’ve only been living in Austin for a year, I’m really going to miss it – I wish I could bring our movie theater and my favorite tacos with me. And sno-cones…

Congrats Joanna!

I don’t know where this week has gone, but it sure flew by. I spent most of the week getting wedding things done – rehearsal dinner venue, save the dates, hair and makeup trial, and I finally bought a dress! Something about buying the dress makes it all feel even more real than setting a date and booking a venue (is that weird? anyone else feel like that?). This weekend I’m hoping to catch up on blogging, so I’ll have some fun posts for you next week. And for now, some of my favorite links from this week…

A riot of paper flowers.

New (cute!) use for pencil erasers.

Retro undies.

If you’re in San Francisco, stop by the Decorator’s Showcase.

I love this cottage by the coast – a dream vacation home!

Have a happy, happy weekend!

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!
