Friday Link Love

Weekend!!!! Dear readers, I am so happy it’s weekend time. Not the face-plant-on-the-desk-thank-goodness-it’s-Friday kind of happy, more of a lazy-stretch-snuggle-up-in-the-covers happy. Completely different. What’s so special about this weekend, right? It’s the start of Andy’s birth-week. Since I work at a CPA’s office, I can’t always take off to do a big trip this time of year, but I want to make sure Andy still has a special birthday. So I came up with “Birth Week”, a whole week full of surprises, silly gifts, and the things my baby loves best. He loves it, and I love that he loves it, so it works out well. All that and I have a baking date with my friend Rachel at her new home! Hooray for the weekend!

I want to make these copper leaf candles to put on my mantle, maybe wrap a few up for Christmas gifts?.

I bookmarked this Weekend Wants last week because I too want all of the items on it. I mean glitter sunnies? Done and done.

These Carrot Cake Pancakes with Vanilla Mascarpone would be perfect for a lazy morning of weekend lounging.

Now that we’re getting into cooler weather and the beverages warmer, here is a guide to help you get the most out of a warm cup of tea.

Some great tips on making the “perfect” cake.

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
