It’s been gorgeous here in Seattle and I’m really looking forward to spending a little time outside…

It was a long week at work and I’m battling the last of my third (or fourth?) cold of the season, so this weekend will be for a bit of resting, besides a dear friend’s birthday dinner tonight. While my husband celebrates the return of hockey today, I’ll be perusing Pinterest for the week’s dinner menu and catching up on the news of the week. I came across this gorgeous picture and I must admit I’m a bit obsessed with both the dress and the cat.

How was your weekend? My birthday is coming up this week, so we had a little celebration on Saturday. Just a casual get together, floating on a lake then a bit of BBQ… my favorite way to spend a warm day. Today we lounged about the house, doing a whole lot of nothing – my second favorite
way to spend a weekend day. Husband and I are starting to prepare for our adventure next month,
a long weekend in Vegas. I’m not much for gambling, but I’m really looking forward to the sun, great
food and a whole lot of down time. Now to just pick out a few new travel outfits… and maybe a few other lovely things…

It’s beautiful outside here in Seattle! I have the feeling this is going to be a historically warm summer for us. I’m not one for real heat, but for now I’ll enjoy the crisp warm days as we transition from spring with outdoor lounging, grilling and bare legs earlier in the season than I’ve ever dared.

Here are a few of my favorites from around the web, on this sunny slothful Sunday.

Floral Pants are adorable!
The beauty of basic black.
San Francisco is our next destination. What are your favorite restaurants?
Tory Burch Summer.
I’ve had this Ikea piece in my closet forever and I love this makeover.
Beautiful rose gold oxfords. Want.
A colorful engagement shoot.
Wildfox Kids, a look book even grown-ups could use for inspiration.

We finally don’t have a million things going on this weekend and I’m thrilled. We are dog sitting and have some brunch plans, but compared to the last few weekends, it feels like endless free time.
And although that mostly means we’ll get a little house cleaning done (yay for spring cleaning!),
I’m really hoping we’ll start our little garden – since it stopped snowing here. Finally.

Hope your weekend is just lovely!

Here are some of my recent favorites from around the web:

Panna Cotta is my new favorite dessert and this one looks fantastic.
Funny bit about living alone.
How to dip dye baskets.
The power of a photograph.
Maps for your walls.
The dream scarf.
A guide to champagne cocktails. Yum.
I adore brick walls.
The cutest little wine bottle stoppers.
Quickly pickled veggies.

So it snowed today. Really, actually snowed and stuck. So of course, I did not leave the house.
But my dear friend Andy took this lovely pic of the neighborhood:

It still surprises me when it sticks. I’m a bit of a baby about the cold. So I stayed in and online.
And here’s what I found.

These leopard shoes.
Be my valentine.
If I did it all over again, I’d have this cake.
Lovely illustrations.
A reusable carrier we’d really reuse.
Beautiful thoughts on marriage.
Some spring shoes for him.
Blue walls.
Fab stripey bags and great outfits as well.
How I will store wine.
A sweet and funny engagement shoot.

Hope you had a lovely weekend!

Did I mention I’m on jury duty right now? I guess not, since I’m not supposed to talk about the case.
It is driving me a bit crazy though – I don’t keep things bottled up very well! The days are a bit slow, but terribly interesting at the same time. Fortunately, each one is peppered with a number of small breaks… in a small back room. I’m so grateful that they have WiFi in the courthouse; I’ve been able to peruse the online world to my heart’s content. Some of my favorites from this week:

Bedroom Art.
A beer tasting party.
Gorgeous chunky cardigan.
Step 1 to great banh mi: pickled vegetables.
Glamorous headpieces.
Homemade service.
The best macarons in the world.
Beautiful furniture from reclaimed materials.
Print dress.
Polenta for breakfast? Or anytime? Yes please.
Black walls are so dreamy.
Watch.

(ps) The bouquet pictured above was for my Nana’s 86th birthday this weekend, from Pike Place Market  – the very best place in Seattle to get flowers!
