HELLO!! I have huge news. This is the first weekend in what feels like forever that I don’t have to work on my book manuscript (turned it in!) and that our kitchen is almost complete (omg!). I don’t even know what to do with myself! We have lots of cleaning up/organizing in the kitchen, I’m going to plant a ton of flowers and we might take a zoo trip. And maybe ice cream too, because we ended up sitting on the couch for mother’s day since we were all so sick.

What are you guys up to this weekend?!

Real quick: don’t miss the quick Max moment I shared last weekend (that sort of got lost among my wordy pregnancy update) and this amazing floral chandelier!

Now for… faves of the week!
