Friday, I'm in ♥

Oh, what a week. It's been a roller coaster type of week. Good things have happened, not so good things have happened, but the bright outlook is we made it through to the weekend. And I'm hoping for a fun, relaxing weekend as we travel out of town for a baseball tournament. Hoping to do some reading and even a little shopping.

We finally got our engagement pictures and *insert squeal here* cannot wait to share them on Monday. So make sure you swing by and check them out!

So, let's get busy with my favorite finds found round the web this week:
  • We celebrated not one, but two, Birthdays in our house this week! So, I loved this idea from cait.create. on making a Birthday Box. I like to make a big deal out of Birthdays... I mean, it's the only day of the year that it's just about YOU! This is a fun project to do for those special people you want to celebrate that might not live close to you.
  • Oh, the Hunger Games. Did you see it? Did you swoon? I could list a million of my favorite posts from bloggers about the movie. But I will just share a few. This post from Hello Giggles on how writer Meghan O'Keefe would win the Hunger Games was quite entertaining. Much Love Illy shared her thoughts in the form of a letter and it was brilliant. And it would not be fair to leave out Busy Bee Lauren who may be the biggest Hunger Games fan of all time!
  • As if the excitement of the Hunger Games wasn't enough this weekend, guess what other little piece of Heaven came back to tv? That's right. Mad Men. This makes me a super happy lady on Sundays (especially since Walking Dead has ended for this season). Loved the Top 10 Best Mad Men Outfits post on Hello Giggles. And did you know there is a blog just about Mad Men? You can find it here.
  • 5 Free Fonts from The Tiny Twig. I never understood the hype behind fonts. That's because I had no clue what to do with them! Now that I have figured out how to download and use them, I've kinda become a font nerd. And I'm okay saying that.
  • I love to travel, don't you? One of the main things I'm looking forward to in this whole wedding is the trip David and I get to take after it's all over! So, I really enjoyed this post by Delightfully Tacky on 10 tips for travelling well. All great reminders and tips for when you're going on your next adventure!

Hope all you lovelies have a fantastic weekend and find time to relax and do what you love! Don't forget to meet me back here on Monday and see our beautiful engagement pictures!
