link up | friday favorites

I wish I was home, drinking coffee, listening to Minus the Bear, and working on some design elements for the blog, maybe a print or two. Jason is giving me some Adobe Illustrator tips since I literally do everything in Photoshop. Once I get the hang of everything I will definitely be doing a giveaway, so stay tuned for that!

Moving on, today I'm linking up to share a few favorites from the week!

Favorite Olympic Moment

When the Fab Five won gold for the team final I think my heart wanted to explode, true story. So proud of these young ladies for all of their hard work, dedication, and for representing our country so well in the Olympic games! Go USA!

Favorite Instagram

We used to be awesome at taking photos together all the time. Here lately I've tried more and more to make it a regular thing. Not to be vain! But it sucks when you want to look back on your relationship and you discovered huge gaps of time where there are no photos together. We took this last night after dinner and I love it! (Even if my smile is weird. I blame the braces! Did you guys even know I have braces?)

Favorite Quote

There's been a lot of hate this week. Several times I've caught myself thinking "why can't everyone just get along, even if they disagree? why can't people just love one another?" I couldn't find a "love one another" print that didn't have an entire bible verse on it, and I was honestly looking for something without religious affiliation. I ran across this quote from Harry Potter. Well said Dumbledore*, well said.

*J.K. Rowling

Favorite Wishlist Item For The Office

Why wishlist? Because as awesome as I think this lamp is $167 is just a bit much.

What are your Friday Favorites?


  1. I'm so glad you found me because I am loving your blog! Such a lovely, clean design! And of course, I love that lamp and completely agree, $167 is more than I could handle for a lamp. And you know I love Harry Potter since I juuuuust posted a print I made with a Harry quote. Ahhhh so glad to be reading along!

    1. Why thank you! I had Jason work on some of the blog design with my color palette, and then I tweaked all of it last night. Chevrons > dots.

      I'm Harry Potter obsessed! So happy to "meet" another fan :)

  2. Love women's gymnastics!! I wish I could do some of the stuff that they do!

  3. omg I die for that lamp! That is seriously gorgeous and I need it in my life. But for like 10 dollars not 167. Let's maybe barter with them?

  4. I have always loved that quote.

    Team USA is amazing! I love watching women's gymnastics.
