Quick request before I share links with you… I’m looking for some new non-wedding blog reads and I want your input. Help me out and leave a comment with up to 10 of your very favorite blogs (design, food, baby, mommy, DIY, etc.) – I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it!

This weekend is jam packed for us… tonight is my friend’s birthday party (Happy 30th Susie!), we have another friend in town visiting, and then I’m hosting a baby shower for a third friend on Sunday. It seems like a lot after barely leaving the house all summer, but I’m really looking forward to all of these things – I love spending my days with baby, but it also is so nice to be social again! And, since it’s been awhile, I hope you’ll forgive me posting a pic of my Caroline who is almost three months old. (Thanks to my friend Samantha for the super cute bandana bib!)


What an exciting week this was for us with the launch of Snippet & Ink Select!

Meaningful relationship advice for newlyweds.

I love it when fashion doesn’t take itself too seriously.

How about a father-daughter first look?

If it weren’t sold out, I think this straw fedora might have been the hat to make me start wearing hats.

Pretty, modern enamelware.

Loving this series of vintage beach pics, via A Cup of Jo.

Gold foil stripe coasters will make any day a party!

And finally, a shameless pitch: My soon-to-be brother-in-law set up a t-shirt fundraiser for my 6 year old nephew fighting cancer. Help us reach the goal of 50 t-shirt sales!


Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

    I love Cup of Jo by Joanna Goddard. She posts a lot of general lifestyle things, but the way she makes them into weekly features makes you really look forward to reading her blog. Same with Oh Joy! but hers is more consumer based. And of course OhSoBeautifulPaper :)

    One more. Scouting New York is a blog written by a location scout in New York and has the coolest pictures and stories of all the hidden gems he finds in the city. I love reading about secret tunnels and building history, and this site always makes me want to take off for New York and just walk around for miles.

    Peppermint Bliss, What Would Gwyneth Do, and Little Baby Garvin are all fun, funny, and great reads. And now that I think about it, all have little girls! In the food blog realm, Dinner: A Love Story and Joy the Baker are both great for food but still enjoyable to read even if your kitchen is the last place you want to be ;0) Good luck on your search – and your little one is just the cutest!!

    I really like The Art of Doing Stuff – she’s got great DIY sense and know how and she’s very funny. Everything from backyard chickens (the right way) to great gardening and cooking how-to’s to re-tiling your kitchen, she’s got it covered with a great sense of humor to boot. Here’s the link: http://www.theartofdoingstuff.com/. I’m not going to promote myself, but if you’re on Tumblr, check out my wall :)
