Holiday Weekend

ebb + flow :: holiday weekend

Kick your heels up, friends, we’ve arrived at a holiday weekend! Three days of hot temps, State Fair madness, visiting family, birthday celebrations and late summer goodness are upon us. I plan to soak up every second and catch some Labor Day sales in preparation for this. I’ll catch you on Monday for a wrap up of it all, of course. Until then, have the best weekend ever.

ebb + flow :: seasons

I’m ignoring the fact that it’s flirting with 100 degrees outside, the AC is on full blast and I’m sweating as I write this to think ahead to fall, the best season of them all. Bring on the booties, jeans, scarves, flannel and falling leaves. I. Am. Ready.

Have Your Cake

ebb + flow :: hazelnut cake

Hold the phone (I’m bringing that phrase back), stop what you’re doing and check out this cake. It has hazelnut, cream cheese, the perfect cake stand and beautiful figs on top and within. What is not to love? Probably just the fact that we don’t have it on a plate in front of us right now to enjoy. Grr.

New Favorite

ebb + flow :: Sigrid Calon Notecards

There’s a new favorite notecard in town, friends, and this is it. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the set last week and am contemplating framing the bright prints instead of sharing via mail with friends. Selfish, but true. Keep an eye out for the release because you’ll definitely be wishing you had these bad boys in your collection too!

Weekend Wrap 8.30

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

After six hours in the car, four start-to-finish sessions with Taylor Swift’s album (gotta get ready for the concert!), one bag of Boom Chicka Pop (whoops!) and one minor incident with a bird hitting the windshield, I am back in Minnesota! I’ve got some unpacking and puppy catch-up to do before I call it a night so while I tend to those, enjoy these links from around the web this week.

Billy Joel

Tonight the original Braun Family Four are heading downtown for some Billy Joel fun at Wrigley Field! I know very few of the words to ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire’ but that will likely not stop me from mumbling my way through. Apologies in advance to anyone sitting near me. After that I’ve got the rest of the weekend in Illinois so I’ll catch you on Sunday once I venture back to the land of 10,000 lakes. Have a wonderful weekend, pals!

Weekend Wrap Up 8.23

August 23, 2015

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

If you’re on the hunt for someone who really knows how to party on a Saturday night I recommend you keep looking. I am not your gal. Last night I went to the grocery store, set up mouse traps in my basement (don’t get me started…), re-caulked our tub and fell asleep watching Pitch Perfect. Do I know how to party or what?! I probably shouldn’t admit these things but I’m all about honesty. One good thing to come out of my homebody evening is the plethora of links for your enjoyment below. Check ’em out and have a great weekend ahead!
