As far as productivity we’ll give this weekend a grade of D+, but in terms of fun, time with friends and good food, I’d say we’re scoring in the A+ range. We had birthday parties, bachelor parties, a Sunday Funday, a binge session of The Walking Dead and, perhaps, a few too many cocktails (our little secret). While I piece our house back together, enjoy these links from around the web this week.
We made it to the weekend! For me that means two days of birthday parties, haircuts, cleaning, cooking and vegging. Enjoy it, friends!

A peaceful image to wrap up this Thursday and send us into the weekend. We’re almost there, friends!

My former classmate (and an incredibly talented photographer), Ryan Browne, is in Iceland right now and it’s taking all my strength not to book a flight this instant. Seriously, Elissa, close the Orbitz browser tab.

New rule: all living rooms should come with hammocks.

The Erickson abode is home to a lot moving parts right now. Our master bedroom is covered in four different shades of blue in an attempt to find the winning paint color (the result of three Ace Hardware trips within four hours), our hearth is being recovered (The Tile Shop had a killer sale last week) and our garage is mid-sort (full of things to sell on Craiglist). It’s a bit messy, but it’s progress. I’ll take it. I think the Spring cleaning bug has bitten! While I stare at paint colors, enjoy these links from around the web.
Guys, get this, I won bowling last night! So I think I’m going to retire and never bowl again. It seems like the smart thing to do. I’m also going to ride this victory into the weekend as I’m celebrating the wedding of two co-workers tonight, a busy day of house projects tomorrow, lunch with friends on Sunday and hopefully some time with this giant book I am attempting to read. Hope you have a good one!

Tonight, the Red Head and I have a bowling date planned with some pals. This is both hilarious and terrifying. I am not known for my expert bowling skills or my small feet (why do the put the shoe size on the back of those bad boys?) but I’m looking forward to it nonetheless! Also, I heard a rumor that there’s wine so, of course, I’m in!

I was browsing my recent pins the other day and noticed a trend: bold and colorful compositions. Here are four of my current favorites because I couldn’t narrow it down to just one!.

Today has been dragging! Give me the Red Head, Walking Dead and some takeout food (we had a slight crockpot fail today…), please. I also wouldn’t mind those pumps and that feather dress from Miss Jolie-Pitt, just to have on file for the right occasion.
