Friday Afternoon Round Up

I just bought all of the supplies to do this DIY project.

Matt thought this was a good news article. I did not. Whose side are you on?

This is my new favorite blog. I sort of wish they would adopt me. Or at least teach my husband how to be so handy around the house.

I wish people made a big deal when I left the apartment without Matt.

These look like the bowls my bridesmaids painted at my bachelor party!

If only Matt had seen this before popping the question on a sailboat at sunset…

Matt’s response to this “I freakin love giraffes! They so nice to each other.”

Please send me something.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Friday Afternoon Round Up

I have been reading a lot of other blogs lately to see how I can make improvement on my own blog. A lot of folks in the blogging universe have been writing about the Alt summit that was held in Salt Lake City, Utah last week.  After reviewing the list of folks invited to speak on the various panels, I have added a lot of new bloggers to my daily reading list – I am trying to see which ones will “stick” before adding them to official list of blogs I follow. And while I am a little insulted that I wasn’t invited to this incredible party/blog love fest, I have to admit, I have learned a great deal just from reading the recaps that some of the invitees have given. And boy, do I have a long way to go before I can become the next “Oh Happy Day” or “Making it Lovely“.

Many bloggers use Friday as a way to highlight some of their favorite links from the previous week. I like this idea and I am going to institute a weekly Friday Afternoon Round Up. Welcome to its first edition (yes, copies of this will be very valuable. If you want a signed version, just let me know). Please feel free to leave comments, suggestions or happy thoughts!

Thank you Snippet & Ink for this Where the WIld Things Are masterpiece. Stephen Colbert, I love you. Parts one and two.

This will make up for the fact that I was never a girl scout.

Best news story of the week (thanks Matt for sending me this!)

Wish I listened to my photographer and got a photobooth for our wedding. Don’t make the same mistake.

I miss my sister. And her adorable dog.

Last weekend I took on this craft project. Maybe this weekend I can make this?

Will you come to my “cocktails and crafts party” ? Here’s some inspiration.

I bought this for a friend. I might need to get myself one too.

Where it all started.

HAPPY WEEKEND!
