a very cool art installation at mccormick place in chicago
How was your first week of August?
I realized on Monday that my birthday is in one month! Of course, that means it’s time to start celebrating. I’m only half kidding. The Hubbs and I are planning a mini-getaway for my birthday, so this week we started looking into hotels and activities. We’re going to Chatham, MA, which is a beautiful town on the Cape (that’s Cape Cod for any non-New Englanders who may be reading this). My family vacationed on the Cape almost every summer growing up, so the area holds a dear place in my heart. I’m excited!
This weekend, I’m meeting a good friend (hi Jen!) for some wine tasting and catching up. I’m very much looking forward to it! The rest of the weekend will be pretty low-key, with some grilling and spending lots of time outdoors.
So with that, let’s get on to the link love!
~ 21 Dogs that have realized their purpose in life. I love them all, but I just keep going back to #1 and #3 and giggling. Which is your favorite???
~ Erin has got the edgy-fem look down!
~ Who knew there were so many uses for baby oil?!
~ Forget deep dish pizza… I SO need to try these deep dish cookies!
~ Family photo time? How to ensure it turns out great.
~ Does your head spin trying to figure why we need so many different concealer colors? Wonder no more!
~ A few fun tidbits about one of my favorite movies, Mean Girls!
~ A well-written post in support of coffee. It also gave me a good laugh, as I’ve had a few moments as one of the caffeine-hiatus and foam art types (still, I always go back to my beloved coffee).
