Happy Weekend!

I have to confess something silly: sometimes I feel self-conscious about writing these weekend posts, because my weekend plans sound pretty boring. They usually involve hanging out with my hubby, reading, cooking, housework, going for a walk – nothing fancy. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I feel like if I’m going to share it with you, I should have something exciting lined up, you know?! So, since I don’t have anything particularly note-worthy going on this weekend… what are you up to? How do you make the most of your days off?

This quick film about a cardboard arcade will put a smile on your face.

Gorgeous gilded cakes.

Pop-up book proposal – so sweet.

Wouldn’t this be a nice surprise for your newlywed friends?

The world needs more tulle and lace.

Want to taste this color!

How cute are these sweet little spring chicks.

Have a happy weekend, lovelies!

  • What I wouldn’t give for a quiet weekend cleaning the house – it’s so neglected at the moment! I hope it’s a lovely and relaxing few days for you. Enjoy the peace!

  • Your weekend posts are my favorites! And what a blessing it is to just enjoy home and the people there with you! Happy Weekending! xo

  • I agree, I love your weekend posts. This blog is about weddings which ultimately are themselves about marriage. I think that the ordinary weekends with those we love, doing chores together, reading together, going for walks, cooking dinner together, are truly what marriage is about. What could be more lovely than that?

  • That’s how I spend most of my weekends too! Your weekend posts are always fun. I’m at my parents’ currently, and then I’m off to visit my bro for the day tomorrow, and then Sunday is catch up day! Hope you have a great weekend :)

    I love your weekend posts! And frankly – having just gone through a whirlwind couple months that involved lots of weekend work & trips – there is sometimes nothing better than a relaxing weekend at home.

    See Kathryn,
    Your weekend posts remind us that we are normal and have weekends similar to you. Paris trip re-caps give us excitement and something to dream about while we do our chores during the weekend; but knowing you do the same stuff we do and find pleasure in just “being” with the one your love is pretty awesome too. So drop the pressure, enjoy being you!

    p.s. my weekend: birthday parties, girls night, and a Korean BBQ. And, special time with my love.

    I love a nice relaxing weekend, are you kidding me? Nothing like lounging in your PJ’s in the morning…and reading your weekend post to catch up on all the pretty things in the world!

    However, this weekend is full of frenzy–I’m going to check out the amazing Sleep No More (I’m so excited!!), and then there’s brunch with friends and maybe a little karaoke, too boot! It’s the relaxing weekends that prepare me for the crazier ones!

  • I totally know what you mean about the intro – sometimes it can be difficult to come up with something to say! But I love your weekend posts, so keep them coming! And thank you so much for the link love… have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

  • The weekend posts are definitely my favorite, in my post-wedding world. Here in Cyprus it’s actually Easter, so we’re having egg hunts, lots of food, some parties, and cramming in some much needed time at the beach.

    Usually it’s laundry, errand running, and scrabble.

  • Your weekends sound dreamy and perfect and remind me of the halcyon days of sleeping in and reading the Sunday New York Times at 9.00 in the morning instead of at 7.00 a.m. with The Cat in the Hat playing in the background while my three year old peppers me with “why mama?” questions. Sweet in theory but some days I really miss the quiet weekends. Enjoy!

    Our weekend will be filled with a visit to the library, a trip to the model train shop, breakfast on Sunday at our favorite restaurant and counting the hours until spring break is over and my sweet kiddo can head back to preschool.

    I’ve just come back from my honeymoon in the Maldives (AMAZING) and on our second night they laid out desserts that included a little shot glass which had a layer of green mousse over pink/red stuff. The chef told me it was rhubarb compote with pandan mousse. They had kept the rhubarb quite tart, and been light with the sugar in the mousse. It was the most perfect, light and amazing combination – the creaminess counteracting the sharpness of the fruit and not too sweet. I spent the rest of the holiday eating anything with pandan in it – it’s not dissimilar to the flavour of green tea, but without the bitter edge and instead a little more light. I love it.

    I am making this cake.

    As for my weekend, I’ve just had lunch at Wright Bros Oyster House, got fabulous news about our friends’ surprise bundle of joy turning up (during an appointment to book his arrival, no less!), been to see an Ayckbourn play, then dessert at Maison Bertaux in Soho – now home relaxing/putting together a fancy dress outfit. Tomorrow I’m having lunch with a friend in town then going to the cinema with hubby. It’s an unusually busy one by my standards!

    As a soon-to-be-graduating law student, I want you to know that your weekend plans sound like absolute heaven. I can’t wait to be married (after the bar exam) to engage in activities like that. Sounds incredible.

    Sometimes we all feel a bit self-conscious. At this moment, I feel like I’m starting walk, talk and even smell like a duck. After a weekend spent with pet ducklings and no one else, it’s difficult coming back to work!(Though your posts are wonderful mini-mind-vacations!)

  • wait wait wait… you had an invitation to come to Mississippi for the weekend and go out on the town with your peeps, so even if you chose a quieter, closer to home weekend, you had options. ;)
    love you and know that we MISSED YOU and the honey.
