Weekly Wrap-Up

Good morning and happy Saturday! I just whipped up some banana chocolate chip muffins and am enjoying some coffee while I wait for my better half to wake up. (It's almost 11am!)

Time to share my favorite blog posts of the week!

I love this post with some great guy accessories from The Wood. I know Andrew would look extra gorgeous in all of these!
I think it's great that Gentri Lee met up with her best blogging friend! It's amazing to me what a great community bloggers sometimes have: )
I love Sofia's Valentine's grahams that she created! They look delicious!
I do not remember the last time I had chocolate pudding. A Cup of Jo makes me want to revisit it!
Kitty Cat Stevens shared some vintage finds from the Nashville flea market. I want to go!
These photos of New Orleans from Wanderlusted were great for Mardi Gras. I have never been, have you?
Chantilly shared a secret about using cornstarch as face powder. I'm not sure I would do it, but I think it's a pretty cool idea!
Lazy Explorers shared some wants that I also want, including some awesome fox bookends. I still have yet to get very far on my fox collection!

Best thing I ate this week:
Hmmm, I think I would have to go with the Vietnamese Pho I had yesterday. I still don't completely get the concept (I should have researched how to eat this before I went), but it was a fun new dish with lots of fresh herbs involved!

Favorite day of the week:
Valentine's Day was fun! Since we have a big group of friends, some of us single and some of us dating, we all went to happy hour and then bowling! No one was left behind: )

Best purchase of the week:
Kate Nash tickets! I love love love her, and this will be the first time I have ever seen her live! I didn't even know the show was happening until the venue posted that the tickets were almost sold out! A very close call.

Something I learned this week:
How much I paid last year in student loan interest. Almost a grand! Grrrr.

What do you have in store for your weekend? I need to finish a cover letter for a job I'm applying for, and tonight we are volunteering for a Grand Rapids Symphony event, which means we get a really nice free dinner!


  1. awww— thank you so much for the shout out! if you're ever in nashville then we can have a flea market date ;-)

    also, chantilly's post on face powder is so neat! my bf doesn't like chocolate though so i wonder if i'd be single after trying that diy?!

    and don't sweat the debt! i'm in the same boat over here trying to pay it off and although it is terrible and overwhelming i just remind myself that i am in a much better place because of it! <3

    1. 1. I may very well be in Nashville sometime in the next year or two, so I will keep that in mind: )

      2. Who doesn't like chocolate?! More for you, I guess!

      3. My student loans aren't too horrible, it just makes me cringe at the interest I'm paying because that doesn't even count!!

  2. aaaaaaaw!! Thank you so much for including me!! :D

  3. thank you so much for including me, angela!! xx
