Christian and I stayed up way too late last night just talking. For some reason all of my profound thoughts and questions pop up right as we’re getting into bed (does this happen to anyone else?). Much the dismay of his sleep cycle, each and every time one surfaces we end up huddled under the covers with the puppies debating the intricacies of dating or life or whatever it may be. I do, love those moments.
However, my “baby hamster/lack of sleep eyes” may argue otherwise this morning.
This weekend is full of so much delicious food I don’t know where I’m going to put it all! Christian and I have a Groupon to Diego Zhang’s that’s about to expire, meaning we have a great excuse to go chow down on mini burgers tonight. Tomorrow we’re heading to the Melting Pot with my sister and her husband — we’re also going to play Ticket to Ride afterwards (please tell me you’ve played it — we’re addicted). Sunday we’re heading to church, having lunch with friends and then dinner with My Mom and Christian’s parents. I’m getting excited just thinking about it all!
Hope your week is wrapping up well and that the weekend ahead is full of all kinds of good things. Here are few of my favorites from around the web this week:
I made these Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes last weekend. And, let’s just say that between Christian and I, only 1 of the 5 survived to see another day. May not have been my finest nutritional moment, but it was definitely one of my most delicious. They’re easy to make – bonus!
These “play dresses” make my heart swoon. I love them. So much. Picking between the Remi dress and the Stella dress has become an impossibility, maybe I just need both?
Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar interview was amazing. She’s adorable & funny & darling. I like her even more, if that’s possible. You
should need to watch this and just try to keep from smiling.
Being vulnerable and allowing ourselves to admit that we can’t do it all might be the single most powerful thing we do — not just for ourselves but for other women as well. Showing grace to yourself and others through every season of life.
These good bye kiss photos almost break my heart — the not knowing whether they ever saw each other again is almost too much for me to consider.
I keep thinking about this article on being late. I find myself thinking about it as I’m getting ready to head into meetings and plan my day for appointments. Hoping that the art of being courteous and respectful isn’t dead. (article originally from here)
Lastly, I read this post with an introduction to Tristan Pettyman — I might be late to the party, but I’m totally sticking around. I love her.
