Friday Links

Weekend Links.

May 9, 2015



It’s been one of those weeks. It involved a lot of cleaning and packing and cleaning and packing and unpacking and cleaning. How has yours been?

BUT! Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. Happy Mother’s Day to you readers who are also mamas! Do you have fun plans to celebrate? I am SO excited to see my Mom for a belated Mother’s Day celebration on Monday as we head to sunshine and beaches together.

Here are some fun links I stumbled across while I was procrastinating packing. Enjoy!

Happy weekend! May your Sunday not involve moving boxes, tape, or organization of any kind. And for Heaven’s sake, if you’re tempted to go shopping this weekend, *don’t*. The stuff you will acquire at Target will simply haunt you later. #lessonsfrommyweek
