Oh my – it feels so good to be blogging again! I’ve also been catching up on some of my favorite blogs, so I’ve got lots of good links for you this week. But before we get to those, how are you spending your weekend? My mom is back after three months away, and my best friend has also just returned from a long trip, so I’ll be spending time with them – always fun to hang out with two of my favorite ladies. Also on the list for this weekend: finding my honey a suit for the wedding. We went to Brooks Brothers a few weeks ago, and didn’t really find what we were looking for – anyone have suggestions of where we might look in San Francisco?

And now those links I promised you!

Gracie Finn, I love your name and I love your calligraphy.

I kind of want this trompe l’oeil photo backdrop as wallpaper.

Darling blue business cards.

I can’t decide which I love more – the dresses or the red lipstick.

These fab IKEA cookbook pics have been all over the blogosphere, but I’m posting them just in case you missed them.

Love the new closet + casa series over on Oh Joy.

Rue the day (congrats on the launch, ladies!).

Congrats, also, to Summer on the new Grey Likes Weddings.

Do kittens get any cuter?

Perfect October nail polish.

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

Irresistible color.

And finally, a little sneak peek of our engagement pics – can’t wait to share more with you on Monday. Until then, have a happy, happy weekend!

Ever have one of those weeks where you feel like you’ve had the wind knocked out of you? Kicking things off with the Sad Mac, followed by a car in the shop and a broken RSS feed (how does that even happen?), this was definitely one of those weeks for me. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to a weekend with my honey, keeping my fingers crossed that the broken things get fixed.

Instead of a list of links, I just have this love story for you, via A Cup of Jo. It makes me teary-eyed in the very best way.

Have a happy, happy weekend everyone!

Happy long weekend everyone! Are you already out of the office on your way to the beach? My honey and I are headed to the wine country tomorrow to take engagement photos, which makes me super excited but also a little nervous. Any good tips for staying relaxed in front of the camera? I have every faith in our photographer, though, so hopefully I’ll have some fun pics to share with you when they come back from the photo lab. This weekend also happens to be Snippet & Ink’s 3rd birthday! Which, as far as I’m concerned, is a perfect excuse to pick up a chocolate chip marble cake and wear a party hat.

In case you’re still hanging out in front of your computer, here are some lovely links before you head out for some end-of-summer fun.

The grosgrain ribbon key chain I’ve had for a million years is finally falling apart. I think I’ve found its replacement.

Love this simple and sweet wedding.

Mmmmm… blueberry pie….

Purely paper flower shop.

I want to have ice cream with ban.do!

Cuddling chairs.

These stamps of disapproval are hilarious.

Shoe or sculpture?

Don’t you want to know what Essence of A Versailles Afternoon smells like? Or maybe Extract of Topiary?

All you need is love, love is all you need.

Happy birthday Oh Joy!

And then one last thing before everyone takes off – we have a winner in the Williams-Sonoma $150 giveaway! Congratulations to Annette Greason who said: “I am MADLY in love with their Multicolor Ceramic 7-Piece Mixing Bowl Set and have been since the day I we first made eye contact back in April -despite the fact that I could never justify the 159.95 price tag. If I won the gift card I could pay only 9.95 for the whole set!” Annette, email me to claim your prize.

See you on Tuesday, everyone!
