Lunchtime Link Round-Up | Have a Lovely Weekend!

Fridays used to be days when I shared a little about what was going on with me, and then some fave links from my web browsing that week, and then (cliché warning) I had a baby and had a hard time coming up with things to say. Certainly part of that could be attributed to baby brain and lack of sleep and not being able to think straight long enough to form complete sentences even in simple face-to-face interactions. But I think it’s also partly due to the fact that a huge part of my life now revolves around Caroline, and I’m a) not sure how much of her I want to share with the internets and b) not sure how much the internets wants to hear about mama/baby stuff. Or at least, not here on a wedding blog. Also, if I’m being honest, it’s Friday. Doesn’t your brain just kind of want to kick back and have a cocktail, because mine does. I still want to do some more personal writing in some form or another; these weekend link round-ups just aren’t the place for it, and I’m not quite sure where is.

So, while I’m figuring that out, please enjoy these links, and have a lovely weekend! And if you’ve actually read all of this and have a (kindly-worded) opinion, I’m all ears!

The Bumblebee Street Sweets

If you’re in Denver you have to check out The Bumblebee Truck! Okay, okay, it’s my sister’s dessert truck (yes that’s her, she’s adorable, it’s annoying), and that’s why I can tell you: the sweets are insanely good! Pic by Christina McNeill.

I don’t have a Cricut but these shadow puppets make me want one.

Chic leather clutch for a chic bride.

How to bake a bread balloon.

Inspired by this hairstylist who spends his Sundays cutting hair for the homeless.

The long term affects of bad news.

New snack that I wasn’t sure about but now I’m kind of addicted: Toasted Sesame + Seaweed Popcorn.

Beyoncé wasn’t built in a day. This definitely needed to be put on a t-shirt.

A simply modern wedding announcement.

And a simply darling wedding invitation.

What is this leaf? Amazing!

It wouldn’t be weekend links without a s’more recipe. Or two. Introducing: peanut butter s’mOreos and s’mores pretzel hand pies.

    My brain is always fried come Friday, and I’m babyless, so my hat’s off to you. If it’s any consolation, I haven’t noticed anything missing; Snippet & Ink is as enjoyable a read as ever. Maybe a baby blog is something to consider? Snippet & Binky? Sorry, couldn’t resist! But I’m sure there are thousands of people (me included) who would love to see a baby-focused offshoot of Snippet & Ink.

    Your sister’s dessert truck looks absolutely amazing, by the way. And that hairdresser totally made my day. :)

    • Kathryn says:

      Thanks Lauren – that’s definitely reassuring! I’ve definitely thought of doing something in the baby or lifestyle vein, just need to find the time! :)

  • I’ll keep coming back no matter what! Just because the Internet might want to see a million photos of your adorable kiddo doesn’t mean you have to share and many many kuddos to you for taking the time to really think it over. :-)

    • Kathryn says:

      Haha – thank you Kate! There’s part of me that wants to share every single iPhone photo, and then there’s part of me that wants to keep her all to myself! Thanks so much for the support. :)

  • Katherine says:

    What a charming dessert truck! And your sister’s desserts and treats look delicious, lovely and mouth watering! Thank you for sharing!

    • Kathryn says:

      If you’re ever in Denver you have to try it out – the malt shoppe cookies are TO DIE FOR.

  • Kelly says:

    Echoing what Lauren said, on pretty much every count — have always loved your careful curation and consistently warm and intelligent tone on here, not to mention the beautiful images! Babytime is a special and uniquely draining time and you should devote as much of yourself to it as your little pumpkin needs. Readers like us will be here no matter what!

    (Snippet & Binky does have a certain kind of ring to it, I must say…)


    • Kathryn says:

      Thanks Kelly! Snippet & Binky… may just have to make that happen. :)

  • Julie says:

    This is only tangentially related to your concern, but I’ve been browsing your blog on and off since before you got engaged and married. I would LOVE to know how your perspective on weddings have changed since before you got engaged to now when you have a child. Does that make sense?
    Anyway, I love your blog and the thought you put into all the posts. I have to tear myself away because I am not getting married any time soon :)
    Best wishes to you and mad props for handling the work/ life balance as well as you seem to do!
