Happy Friday!

{valentine's day heart earrings with an edge}


Happy almost Valentine's Day! Gosh I just love everything sprinkled in red + pink!

This has felt like a long and daunting week, though nothing about it was particularly terrible. I'm excited because we have a long weekend ahead and will be heading out tonight for a weekend with family at my aunt & uncle's cabin. I can't wait for a cozy weekend ahead. I'm bringing brownies & cookies to frost and sprinkle {and devour} with Penelope, a few books on my Kindle and lots of warm clothes for venturing out into the snow.

Have a wonderful weekend and safe travels if you are going anywhere! Now tell me all the things about your weekend plans!


here are some links I loved this week:

these chocolate pancakes with strawberry yogurt would make a lovely v-day breakfast

on quitting a 'perfect' nyc life

when will working moms stop being punished? this one hit home.

love this list of 21 lessons from mom

i can't get this whipped cranberry porridge out of my mind

will you be seeing 50 shades of grey? i actually want to, but will probably wait until it's on demand.

speaking of movies, the breakfast club will be re-released in theaters to celebrate its 30th anniversary

an interesting read on when motherhood isn't amazing

one of my favorite blogs, hello giggles, now has a teen version {i'll probably read this one too!}

speaking of, they have a powerful piece about losing your parents

and on a lighter note, give these healthy kitchen hacks a try


I hope you have a great weekend! And before you go...

Happy Valentine's Day, from my little Valentine to yours!
