Woohoo, the weekend is here! We have plans to see some of my family who are coming into town, and I’m heading out of town for a baby shower. Then I’m baking for some birthday parties on Sunday after church. I always look forward to the weekends, busy schedule or not, because they are the days my little family spends the most time together.
ONE: I’ve got to be honest, I’m missing this view right about now. Last Friday morning we were waking up to a view of Central Park, with the whole day ahead to explore the city. I love Charlotte, and I am usually a homebody, but we just had such a wonderful time in New York. You can read more about our trip in this post from earlier in the week.
TWO: Davis turns 2 in about 6 weeks, and I am not prepared. I haven’t done anything for his party, besides deciding on a theme. Thanks to help from Todd and my girlfriends, we’ve settled on a school bus theme. He is obsessed with them, and I really think he’ll enjoy having school bus decor everywhere. Here is some inspiration for a Wheels on the Bus party I found on Pinterest.
THREE: I am planning to sell macarons for the next several weeks. I will have one flavor/week, including: Pumpkin Spice, Cookies and Cream, Salted Caramel, and S’mores. I’ll post more details on my blog this weekend, but I wanted to give anyone interested a heads up! (I don’t ship them yet, so this basically just applies to Charlotte locals).
This picture is from a sale I did several weeks ago.
FOUR: Framing old recipes. I pinned this idea from Style Me Pretty earlier this week, because I think the idea would work perfectly in our home. Our dining room has a cake/baking/vintage theme (china cabinet full of cake stands), and the women in my family are admirable cooks and bakers! My granny was a huge inspiration to me in baking, so it would be really special to have some type of gallery wall with their handwritten recipes.
FIVE: Always a good reminder. Love this perspective.
Cheers to Friday, y’all! Thank you for reading!
