Celebrate – This weekend I was so excited to spend some much needed time with friends. We decided to attend comedy night at a local winery. Ha-larious! 

Drink – Later that night, I did my first official Irish Car Bomb. I suppose at the age of 29, that’s something I should have done a while ago. Although it was okay, I can’t say I will be doing a lot more in the future. Have you ever done one?

Relax – This Sunday I was truly tempted to join my cats on their day long nap-fest. They generally sleep a lot, but I think they know when it’s Sunday because they barely move. More power to them.

Party – I’m totally in love with this “Treat yo self” banner. You watch Parks and Recreation, right? Probably my favorite show on TV. If not, watch this little video clip to understand why I’m loving this so much.

Advice – The other day I stumbled upon this quote. It’s a nice reminder of how incredibly important it is to cut ourselves some slack sometimes, and to forgive ourselves for mistakes we’ve made on this journey. Let it go and enjoy the ride, right?

Paint – Speaking of love, how awesome is this aqua light fixture? It adds so much interest and life to the space, not to mention a splash of color. It kind of reminds me of Kate’s (of Centsational Girl) light fixture in her daughter’s room. A quick coat of spray paint can make an amazing difference. 

Design – Isn’t this plate wall (and the entire space) marvelous? I mean, seriously what a genius idea! This is an excellent example of taking a somewhat-dated concept and bringing it back to life in a completely wonderful and modern way.

Network – I was super excited when my new business cards arrived on Saturday. They are fabulous! I decided to go with a round card and I’m so glad I did. The cards were designed by the uber-talented Bethany of B*Spoke Studio.

Decorate – Last week I had a few new pieces of furniture delivered to my house – two chairs and a cabinet. The cabinet is beyond perfect. The chairs, on the other hand, are a bit riskier, but I’m crazy about them. I can’t wait to show you!

Hope you had an inspired weekend. What new things did you find or do?
