Friday Favorites // Link Love

Never has a Friday come, that I was this happy to say TGIF!   Okay, I take that back... never, is a strong word, but in all honesty, it's been awhile since I have felt this exhausted at the end of a week.  Work life this week has been jammed packed, which has played a big factor in the exhaustion, but the exciting thing is that today, at the stroke of 6pm (realistically 7pm), the first 3 day weekend of the year will have arrived! Next week is ALT Summit, which I will be attending for the first time, and now that this week is behind me, I have so much to do this weekend to prep (mainly plan my outfits), so a 3 day weekend couldn't have arrived at a better time.

As we head into the weekend, I wanted to share a few of my favorite links, from around the web this week...

  • First off is this amazing photo shoot, inspired by Up!  How cute are they? I want to grow old with the one I love, just like these two! -Style Me Pretty
  • One of my favorite articles (oldie but goodie) by Victoria, about blogging and time management, that I plan to re-read this weekend -VMac & Cheese 
  • Homemade vanilla oreos? Yes, please! Must recreate these soon! -Cupcakes & Cashmere
  • Grace shows us a clever DIY to use those buttons you have lying around! -Stripes & Sequins 
  • Growing up in Northern California and having a chance to live in the city for a year ... San Francisco will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart.  Love this SF Round Up of a few great places (Nick's Crispy Taco's is a favorite of mine too) -Hitha On The Go [note to self, must try Citymaps]
