happy weekend!

i'm so excited for this weekend. our temperatures this week have been in the 90s, so i haven't actually felt like getting off of the couch after i work, but this weekend includes my sunday off, and i plan on using it. :) there are some estate sales to attend and some serious hanging out with my boyfriend to be done.

i also think i may hear back on the news i've been waiting for.. :) and if i do, i might do a little tiny bit of celebration shopping. here's what's on my list:

1. a new keychain. if i get a new job, i'll get a new key.. and that calls for a change in keychain. right now, i'm carrying one that i got at target almost 2 years ago, and it's gotten a little dingy. i'm excited for change!

2. a pretty necklace. i love virginia. :)

3. a giant dwarf crown. i think this one would go perfectly with my style and my blonde hair. and who doesn't dream of owning one?

4. a handmade turquoise ring. i've had this on my wish list for.ever. i even told austin i would love for it to be my engagement ring, but i think he thought i was kidding. :) it's about time i own a pretty ring that won't turn my finger green!

and here are a few links i wanted to share:

austin does gift exchanges on reddit all of the time, and i get just as excited as he does to send and receive the surprises! so when i saw that oh, hello friend was doing a lovely package exchange, he encouraged me to sign up. i'm SO excited! have you seen any other package exchanges around? i might become addicted..

i've linked to sometimes sweet before (and i do her currently posts fairly often), but i had to link to this post. i am not religious, but i love talking religion with people, and hearing what they believe in and why. i've even been known to tag along to churches with friends. i think it is sometimes really taboo for "nonbelievers" to discuss their opinions, so i think danielle was brave to share hers. the quote at the bottom is beautiful, and resonates with me. the whole thing resonated with me.

i loved the pretty cookies in this post! read all the way to the end.. the last cookie is my favorite. :)

this is one of my favorite lists-of-things-to-do-instead-of that i've ever seen! i'm going to try and finish the majority of them. :)

this looks perfect and refreshing for the heat we're experiencing.. maybe i'll make it on my sunday off?!



  1. that ring. ohmygoshhhh!! so beautiful.

  2. very lovely! I just found your blog and am very excited to follow along!

  3. The ring is a beautiful Etsy find! So pretty! Turquoise is such an interesting stone.

  4. I love the Virginia necklace! I grew up in Charlottesville :) The 100 things list is going to be a life-saver for me, great find!! Danielle's post on being a nonbeliever is one of my favorites, too.

  5. I've been wanting that Virginia necklace for a while now. I currently live in the midwest but was born and raised in VA and miss it so much!
