Friday Favorites



1: Dandelions Summer Wristlet from EightSeasons
2: Into the wind from Ivoryandnoir
3: Trocadero caramel from parispastrylab
4: Silk Lilac Lady necklace from fleurfatale

I very nearly skipped my way out of my math final this week. Bye bye polynomials and quadriatic formulas and hours of sitting in windowless labs trying to comprehend 13 weeks of algebra in 6. It's done. And I'm still alive! I'm sorry for the long absence, I can't tell you how much I missed you guys.

Now, onto summer! I'm heading to La Crosse this weekend to see Andrew, where I hope to enjoy a number of new coffee shops, a Harry Potter movie, and a very good bottle of wine. What about you, what's on the weekend itinerary?

We're on our way to the 'city' for a speech and some shopping at Whole Foods! Hopefully lunch on the waterfront...if the weather holds! Have a great weekend and visit with Andrew!

our little love nest said...

I love those favorites! So loving caramel lately.

YAY!! Congrats on the completion of math.

We are hoping for a Saturday morning adventure with just the two of us, an afternoon of yard work and an evening of campfire, hot dogs, marshmallows and yummy caramel coffees with all of us and maybe some friends.

I hope your weekend with Andrew is wonderful! It sounds like it will be just perfect. xoxo

Congratulations! Yay! And Friday's the perfect day to be done with a class =)
Enjoy a well deserved break with Andrew! I'll be dancing Argentine tango, hanging out a bit with my sister and niece who are in town and just doing some general pottering about the apartment.

ooh, fun times ahead with Andrew! yay for you on finishing your class!

I am enjoying the day off today, will be shopping for new items for the dining room and bedroom. hope to have the rooms almost complete soon. will post more over the weekend on the process.

On the weekend, I have to clean out the garage! when I moved in they left a bunch of old wood and then large old containers of ?? I will need to call the Village to find out when they have a hazard pick up day, since I am sure it's from the 50's and not good to through out in the trash.
Once that is done, I will enjoy sitting in my back yard with a cold drink in my hand:)

Hope to come up and visit you soon before summer is over.
Have a wonderful time in LaCrosse and enjoy the movie with Andrew!! I hear it's good
