Weekend Links.


Would you look at that... it's raining. Again. I suppose I'll stop the pity party there, because we don't have fires, or floods, or oppressive heat, and compared to the rest of the country, that makes us pretty lucky right now. Our weekend weather looks like it is going to be insanely beautiful, and fortunately the boys and I have two entire skate filled days ahead. Right now I feel such urgency to soak up as much of the remaining summer days as I can, the cooler mornings we had earlier this week are just a reminder that too soon it will all be over. 

That picture above reminded me so much of my childhood. In fact, I think I might have even had that rainbow shirt! It's funny how as you get older you start reminiscing about your youth, and for me I always think back to riding my bike around my neighborhood, trying to find the perfect secret hideout.  I can't wait until my boys are a little older, and can do some of that exploring on their own. I'm pretty sure that is the stuff that awesome childhoods are made of!

I hope you all have a fantastic rain free, fire free, sunny weekend. Here are a few links from around the web to help 5pm get here a little quicker! xx

What a timely article for my current pondering of what's next. 

Coupled with this great advice from the Messiah. 

Okay, who watched the season finale of the Bachelorette? I'll admit I watched the first episode or two, and the last, but I find it impossible to keep up with everything in the middle. This most definitely hasn't always been the case, and this made me laugh. I'm pretty sure finish a novel, could be in there as well!

Our farmer's market has the most beautiful zucchini right now, and my husband keeps telling me there is no way to make it taste like anything other than boring. Let's see if this recipe does the trick. 

This post has me wanting nothing else in life other than this spray gun. Do we think it's as easy as she makes it look? I have a few pieces of furniture in the boy's room calling my name. 

This piece from the New Yorker really makes me miss those Sex and the City days. Why oh why did they have to make the sequel to the first movie, or even the first movie? I feel like it forever tainted something that was so, so good. 

More on the Birkenstock. Hmmmmmm, I'm still on the fence. 

As a nod to the boy's Swiss heritage, I picked up these for the bottom of their new beds. They are so perfect!

Beautifully written diet and body advice from one of my favorite yoga instructors.  

How to do all feel about wallpaper? If I could afford it, I would probably have it in every room in our house. This great roundup had me drooling. 

I've been searching and searching for the perfect lamp for our guest room. At this price, I can now say my quest is over!

Oh, and I really should start training for the 10k I've signed up for in October. By training I mean actually run for the first time ever. Maybe this will give me some motivation

Finally, two words; Breaking Bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's back on Sunday... is anyone else FREAKING OUT?
