Happy Friday

colorWe made it through the week, everyone. It was a good one, but who isn’t always ready for Friday? Do you have many plans? B’s brother from California is flying in tonight and his parents are driving up tomorrow. We’ll all be attending the Bash4Guild event to support a great nonprofit committed to those struggling with mental illness. Those of you in the Twin Cities area, do come! It’s co-hosted by a friend of ours and is sure to be lots of fun.

Other than that, I’m starting to plan my sister’s bachelorette party! She’s been so stressed with planning her August wedding and I want to make sure she has one weekend where she can simply kick-back.

I hope you all have a great one and here’s some clever links from across the web…

Have a Happy Friday

sealHellooo, Friday! It’s been an unusual week for us with snow/rain/sunshine and with me house-sitting for friends and working, so I’m excited to just get home tonight and cuddle up with B and Audrey. And maybe go to the gym because I’ve haven’t been eating too healthy this week. I hate how even small changes to my schedule can really upset my healthy habits…in other news, the weather’s meant to be gorgeous in the Twin Cities this weekend, which means picnics, long walks and reading outside. What are your plans?

Have a great one everyone and enjoy these links from around the web…
