Hello my friends! And HELLO WEEKEND! It’s going to be a balmy one here in the Northwest – 80 degrees on Sunday! Woot! The plan is to hike, bike, and prepare for next week’s visitors (more on them later). I have a feeling there will also be a lot of patio sipping and bbq-ing – two of my favorite activities.

Friday links, comin’ atcha:

Book spine poetry.

Love this color palette for a spring wedding.

The United States is branding itself. (The first photo on the website is of Oshkosh, WI. Interesting choice.)

The best cities for hipsters.

My favorite place to take Eugene visitors.

I like this print.

Fancy s’mores.

happy anniversary

19 Apr

Just a quick post to wish my sister and brother-in-law a very happy 4th wedding anniversary! They won’t see this because they are frolicking around Europe for a week (also because they don’t read my blog, as far as I know), but I had to give a shout out because after next year, theirs will be only the 2nd best wedding ever in the history of the month of April. And the world!

Cheers to a long and happy marriage!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Tonight, we are heading to the McDonald Theater to see Hells Belles, an all-girl AC/DC cover band. Tyler is weirdly excited about it. I am trying to talk him out of the “meet the band” portion of the evening. We also have a couple Skype convos scheduled with potential wedding photographers. Exciting times.

Here are your Friday links!

Spaghetti with anchovies, kale, and breadcrumbs.

Better ways to sell your stuff.

Garment rack D.I.Y. Love the way this looks.

Pantone tarts.

6 rules for dining out.

Hair tutorial: how to get loose curls

The happiest 5K.

What to expect when your Facebook friend is expecting. (Though I have one correction for the author: Capri Sun juice is clear.)

Based on the obscure novel you probably haven’t heard of…

(Good) Friday links

6 Apr

Hope you all have a great weekend!

According to, the rain is going to hold off tomorrow, so I think I will venture outside for a hike up Spencer Butte or a bike ride along the river path. There is also this amazing little book store in Cottage Grove that I want to check out. It’s attached to a bar we went to recently and I almost died when I saw it. Pretty sure they have a ladder and I will get kicked out for pretending I’m Belle and breaking into song while swinging on it.

Here are some good links for your Good Friday:

My BFF Vicky’s sister is an insanely talented designer. This is her blog.

Dan Wieden is the man.

Hilarious tumblr.

I wish I was here right now.

Cute ring.

Natural skin care. Definitely going to try this out.

I want these awnings.
