Happy Friday! It just happens to be my birthday weekend as well. So double win ;)
People think Mr. C and I are a bit strange when it comes to holidays, birthdays, etc. (ok, they think we are a bit strange regardless) - we don't give gifts. We really haven't since our beginning 6 long years ago. To be honest, it has been the best thing ever. Instead we will do something together - vacations, ski trips, date nights, dollar menu dinners (thankfully those days are done), beach days, days we pretend we are in college again - you get the idea. It also allows us to be spontaneous throughout the year with random surprises - like the Lilly dress that showed up in March just because (gold star Mr. C, gold star).
So when Mr. C asked what I wanted to do to celebrate the weekend of my birth I told him all I want is a weekend of absolutely no plans. None. How luxurious is that? No dinner reservations, no social commitments just hanging out. That is my favorite kind of weekend - just floating around doing whatever suites our fancy. I can't wait.
So while I am floating around all weekend being spontaneously lazy, I will leave you with my favorite finds from around the web:
- Colored cake stands need to find their way to the Super Burbs
- Simple, yet genius
- Chickens, pitch forks and boots - oh my!
- I am going to make these in the near future...
- DIY Perfection
- I love buntings
- This is awesome
Happy weekend all! I miss you already :)
