Happy Weekend!

This weekend Ryan and I are heading up to Garden Valley Ranch to pick out a rose that we’ll plant to celebrate the arrival of our little girl (whenever she decides to make her appearance). Otherwise, with two weeks until my due date, we’re just playing the waiting game and trying to get ready as much as we can (whatever that means!). I also wanted to mention that this will be my last Happy Weekend post for awhile – but fret not! Starting next week, our awesome new intern, Shanley, will be stepping in with link round-ups every Friday while I’m on maternity leave, and she has some excellent picks lined up already (I got a little sneak peek). Until then, here are some of my favorite links from around the web this week…

Love this peek at master floral designer Ariella Chezar at work, by Tiger in a Jar.

Get in the mood for summer with fruity striped ice cubes.

DIY Fathers Day sampler gift boxes from Oh Happy Day.

Loving this burger cake and this chocolate bar cake.

Beautiful pics of Appalachian spring plus a recipe for strawberry balsamic black pepper jam.

Homemade sprinkles.

The queen in technicolor.

Sweet customizable family tree.

Summer fruits by Amy Walters, via You Are My Fave.

What a perfectly, beautifully simple hair clip.

Masking tape art and a masking tape party.

Adore the small objects from Coral & Tusk, especially the rabbit pocket doll.

We’ll be off Monday to honor Memorial Day, but have a happy weekend everyone and we’ll see you Tuesday!
