Happy, happy Friday, friends! The world didn’t end today! Tis the season to be jolly, indeed.
We have our respective Christmas dinner dates with the manfriends tonight and then we’re heading home to hug our family and immediately put on stretchy pants for the glorious few days ahead.
If you’re new to our blog and have landed here as part of a rather strange surge in traffic from the term, “Emily Maynard Coral Skirt” — welcome! Nice to meet you :) We don’t talk about Ms. Maynard all that often, but we’re glad you stopped by anyway.
There’s an awful lot of people to keep in our thoughts this holiday season — lots of craziness in the world lately, and we’re definitely counting our blessings. Thanks for reading, and have a very merry Christmas. (or happy holiday, whatever you may celebrate!)
We are LOVING this awesome holiday playlist that we stumbled across over at hiphipgingin!
We have been bad bloggers and haven’t done our “Happy Friday” posts in a while – but it IS Friday and I AM awfully happy about that, so here we go! We’re both pretty pooped from a long work week, but we MADE it and we’re ready for a good balance of fun and relaxation starting…. now.
Some fun reads that caught our eye or made us laugh:
Wellllllll, another day, another dollar. Another 5 days, that is, (so $5?) and now it’s Friday and we’re so looking forward to a relaxing weekend. We’re heading out of the city to spend the weekend with our family and we’re counting down the seconds until we can be lounging on the patio with the fam, listening to music and catching up over an oversized glass of wine.
The summer is flying and its way too easy to forget to take it all in, so we intend to make the most of this relaxing weekend – that means reading, baking some goodies for the baby bro, and lots of time in the sun.
FaceMath: the only Tumblr that has even come remotely close to our love for soyeahduh
We’re prettyyyy pumped that Taste of Chicago is both smaller and shorter this year. While it’s still not our cup of tea, you can try Asian Carp for free if you’re headed over to Grant Park! (Major WTF on that one)
We could listen to Lisa Eldridge talk about pretty much anything all day long with that fabulous accent, but this video tutorial for a simple bronzed look is perfectly summery and especially worth the watch – we’ll be recreating as soon as possible!
We’re looking forward to a productive weekend – making some updates to our little blog, dinners out, a Bulls game (!) and maybe a cocktail here and there :) We hope yours is as crazy fun or relaxing as you’d like it to be.
