Happy Weekend! Links / Mar 30
Yesterday– Good Friday– I felt strange. Growing up in a fairly devout Catholic family, Easter, Christmas, all the special holidays were overly celebrated. But in our first year of marriage, it feels like John and I haven’t paid attention to any holiday at all. Thanksgiving was lowkey; Christmas was super casual; and now Easter is going to pass without Mass or dyed eggs or chocolate bunnies or a big brunch. Instead, we’ll go on for a super hard long run, go out to breakfast with the guys, and lay around all day. It makes me feel sad (obviously not sad enough to run around and make it extra special). John’s answer? “Holidays are for teaching kids lessons.” What lessons, I’m not sure, but he’s not too concerned about how undevout we are this year.
These mini eggs benedict treats look like the most delicious thing in the entire world! I haven’t had a great eggs benedict in a long time… putting it on the culinary to-do list! via Camille Styles
In case you, too, are being a tiny bit undevout and using this weekend to relax and gather inspiration, a little round-up of must-reads:
-Wedding o’the week: It’s always a happy day when Jen Fariello’s gorgeous couples grace the (web)pages of Style Me Pretty!
-Rue gives us the best office space eye candy.
-I can’t stop listening to this song.
-A bit late on this one, but I’m so inspired by the Everygirl profile of Victoria of SF Girl By Bay. Incredible blog, even more incredible lady!
-Need some cake inspiration? (Really, who doesn’t?). Brooklyn Bride has a jawdropping round up of delightful confections!
-Must-bake: these mini pineapple upside down cakes by A Beautiful Mess. My guys will love me forever!
-Carried away by Cherry Blossom Girl’s recent trip to Disneyland Paris.
-Do you follow Rookie Mag? It’s meant for teens, but there are often beautiful photos and essays for all ages– like this dreamy collection of photos.
-Another must-bake (and a new favorite blog!): mac & cheese muffins. How delicious do these look? I found the Never Settle Blog through the AltSummit class I took Monday night– I love stumbling upon new, emerging bloggers!
-Another at-home profile of a blogger I adore: Glitter Guide takes us into the life and home of Amanda of 100 Layer Cake (one of my first favorite wedding blogs!). Amanda, can I move in please?
