Weekly Round-Up

 Let's get right to it, shall we?
Here's what made me feel all twitterpated, smile contagiously, giggle uncontrollably, etc.

Whenever Flyboy's gone, I typically spend most of my day at our desk blogging or at work. I made a concerted effort to step away from the ol' computer these past few days, and I feel refreshed! Of course, if my office space was half as charming at this Katie Evans illustration, I'd never have any issues when it comes to creating!  
Just a few things that made me incredibly happy...
Berry Gimlet: It's been awhile since I poured myself a gin cocktail, and boy am I glad I did!
Bike Rides: This past weekend we dusted off our road bikes. It was an absolute blast. 
Fresh Strawberries: I got a heckuva deal on strawberries at Safeway, and I'm in heaven. This is my go-to snack.
List Making: When I feel a little overwhelmed and forgetful, nothing is more therapeutic than list making. Nothing.
Watering Plants: I'm sad to admit that I've neglected my herbs, but after routine watering they're coming to life!
New Girl: I kept waiting for that moment you expect from a season finale. My cheeks hurt, my smile was so big.

As Tom Haverford would advise, treat yo self!
My "Treat Yo Self" Picks:
Get your nails done. Oh, you fancy, huh?
Mezzaluna Hobo (it's on sale!)
Banter Banner
Isn't this rosette darling? 
I just love the hot pink ribbon and blazing gold details. I might need this for our office bulletin board, and stat.

Could this photo be any more perfect? 
It makes me excited for the weekend, Flyboy's return (knock on wood), and a few days spent outdoors.

What are your weekend plans?
P.S. Sorry the images and fonts are a bit wonky today. I was running late for work, and I didn't have a chance to compress them prior to publishing! I just wanted to assure you that your eyesight is fine; the font is blurry because of this gal. Oops!
