Sorry I’ve Been So Slow…

but hopefully this tiny little turtle on a leaf that’s totally pumped for the weekend will help you forgive me.  I promise that there will be a round of posts up to greet you first thing Monday morning but for now, here are some links that I’ve found around the web that I’ve been dying to share with anyone (read: everyone)…

I’ve been trying to become a morning person and this has been insanely helpful.

I watched the live performance last week and totally loved it.  Try this quiz and find out which Pink Lady you would be.

Kate Spade just rolled out their kitchen line and it’s kind of making me want to throw out ever single pot, pan and dish and replace them all with quippy casserole dishes and patterned plates.

I really loved this list (with recipes) of 44 Classic French Meals You Need to Try Before You Die.

Have a spa day at home and give this insanely easy DIY body scrub a try.

fun and thoughtful way to show a friend you’re thinking of them just in time for Galentine’s day.  (Leslie Knope would be all over this site.)

This is, without question, one of the strangest-sort-of-greatest-but-still-super-weird things I’ve ever seen.

Did this make your heart sing too?  I can’t wait.

How good does this cocktail sound?  (Created by my favorite cocktail connoisseur)

Have a lovely weekend my forgiving and wonderful readers.  See you Monday, I promise.

Happy Birthday, Baby

I would be remiss if I didn’t give a loving nod to one of (if not my absolute) favorite programs. The beloved show Gilmore Girls turned 15 last week. I don’t know about you, but I grew up with the show and when it finally hit Netflix I shamelessly binge watched all seven seasons over again. Lately, in celebration of TV’s favorite mother-daughter duo, my newsfeeds have been filled with all things Gilmore Girls. It was there that I stumbled upon this heartwarming article about how a viewer’s relationship with the show and it’s characters changes over the years. Happy Birthday to the show that taught me water is good but coffee is a gazillion times better, it’s okay to eat salad straight out of the bag, Pop Tarts are a totally appropriate appetizer to pizza, and that your life is only as good as the quirky people you fill it with (but if you’re going to throw it away, he better have a motorcycle).
