The Weekender




Damn this week was longggggggg. Anybody feeling this way?? I always look forward to the weekend but even more so this time. I have a bunch of fun things going on! On Saturday I’m doing a takeover for TheFeedFeed!! I am sooooo excited and a little nervous lol. Please follow them on snapchat to see what I will be making. 🙂 I will give you a hint….it’s brunch related.  Also on Sunday we have two birthday parties to attend. They are both birthdays for kids but all the adults are going to be having a good time. Follow along on snapchat to see the cuties. It’s crazy how fast they grow up! The little girl is going to be one and not so little boy will be eleven. On top of all that I will be doing a ton of packing as we are leaving for Russia on Monday!! This trip has been in the works for a long time now and I’m ready to go! There will be lots of meeting the family and hearing stories about the shenanigans Boris did as a kid. There will also be a lot of vodka, naturally. 🙂

I’ve added a bunch of great links to keep you busy all weekend long below. Hope you all enjoy!

      Thanks so much! Yes that candle smells amazing and it does carry through the home but not overwhelming at all. I highly recommend it! 🙂
