// ONE Pop your bottles in style with this trendy hexagon bottle opener! // TWO we might be over the ‘in-your-face’ chevron textiles, however this chevron embroidered toss pillow is subtle yet classic // THREE what a clever way to hang an art print!  // FOUR the impending back to school season has me yearning for a new satchel // FIVE Gold geometric paper weight? I’ll take them all.

I almost forgot about my dentist appointment this morning which delayed this post from being published. My bad! I should be a better blogger and get my stuff done ahead of time, but alas I’m just your average procrastinator. Here are some links around the web I that must be shared with you today.

// OMAGAH! This DIY!

// Want to customize your Ikea furniture without the DIY hassle? This list, read it.

// This is EXACTLY how I feel about my student loans

// All my kitchen scheming has me dreaming of copper accents like these.

Have a fantastic weekend! Enjoy those last few moments of summer break.

// ONE #targetdoesitagain, that is all. // TWO i’m incurably obsessed with this crazy pink Morrocan shag rug (if only it was affordable!) // THREE the pillow all dreams are made of // FOUR exercise in style with this pair of mint and gold headphones // FIVE I feel like I’m always hunting for the perfect weekender, something unobtrusively universal, unisex even, and I think this weekender is a new found favorite!

OK so, don’t be afraid, but I think I’ll try to rebrand my ‘Friday Faves’ posts from now on, because I (yes, like many others) wish to share more of what I find noteworthy around the internet.  I thrive on recommendations, from books to blog posts and beyond, therefore I naturally think others do too.  Let’s start treating Fridays as a ‘share the love’ kind of moment.

Shall we start a little bit of this love sharing now? I think yes:

// This husband is my hero.

// A very lucky 4 year old

// My favorite blog series of all time (so happy its back again this Summer!)

// This is absolutely the most comfortable & most flattering tank ever made

// How about this home??

// Can’t get these side tables out of my mind.  Want your own? You can find similar tables here.

Have a fantastic weekend friends!

// ONE this pillow would pair nicely with the navy velvet pillows I just made! // TWO this club chair, my oh my, come to mama! // THREE I’m a huge fan of Target’s Room Essentials line, it’s both stylish and affordable.  I especially like this clip lamp, keep it white or even better – spray paint it gold! // FOUR never take your entryway too seriously, give your guests a laugh with these sweet doormats // FIVE the most unique basket I’ve seen in a while! Love it’s structure, it would look perfect beside a club chair filled with throw blankets

I’ve finally gotten into a good groove with the baby, who just turned 7 weeks by the way! Nuts!  We have a good feed/sleep schedule down which allows me some DIY time, not to mention is helping my sanity – I’m actually getting some sleep! It will all be tested next week tho, we’re going on our first family trip down to SoCal to visit friends and swing by Disneyland.  Call us crazy.

Have a great weekend!

// ONE Pom-poms are having their moment, rightly so as they’re super fun and are a DIYers best friend in sprucing up boring things like curtains or blankets.  Leave it to Target to save you the DIY trouble with this super plush pom-pom throw, which is on sale right now! // TWO This clock is pretty cool, spots and all! You could prob DIY this super easily. // THREE YES! THIS SIDE TABLE. // FOUR Hoo-rah for West Elm’s amazing new arrivals! I am DYING over these stools.  And have you seen the brass wire kitchen stuff? If not, you must, now! // FIVE I’m so happy we figured out a way to tie-dye fabrics to look watercolored and less ‘tie-dye-y’.  I wouldn’t look twice at a traditional tie-dyed pillow, but this aqua pillow is just so lovely!

Some weeks Friday’s sneak up on me, and other times I feel like I’m waiting all week for Friday to arrive! This weekend is our anniversary, we’ve been married for a year! It seriously has been such a great year.  Check back in a couple days and I’ll share a little recap for you :)

Have a great weekend!

// ONE hot damn, THIS hanging egg chair! I’m still on the fence if these types of chairs are actually functional, but that doesn’t stop us from wanting one right? // TWO Sometimes I think Target couldn’t get any better, and then they release a set of (very affordable!) gold flatware! I’ve seen gold flatware range in the hundreds of dollars, a full set of these would hardly hurt your wallet // THREE A fun (and albeit expensive) pillow, that is all. // FOUR Soon I’ll be in the market for some toy storage, right now I can get away with hiding what little toys we have in the closet for our baby boy since he’s too young to play with them yet.  I think I’ll have to grab a pair of these black and white striped tote bins once the toys begin to multiply // FIVE perhaps you’re like me and always on the hunt for the perfect side table.  I’d have to say this curvy brass table from World Market is pretty darn perfect.  Pair it next to your side or club chair and you have a legit piece to rest your coffee mug.

Any fun plans this weekend?? We’ll be finishing up our Home Depot Patio Redux challenge, can’t wait to share with you how our patio has held up over the last year.  Have a great weekend!

// ONE I have no place for this adorable rug, but someone must! // TWO I think I just found my new summer tote! // THREE Seriously, Nate Berkus has a way to all our designer hearts. I’m super smitten with this seagrass basket // FOUR I can’t get outdoor seating off my mind, I’m seriously considering these unfinished pine folding chairs, aren’t they fab? // FIVE I’ve thought it’s a little bold to wear this phrase as a sweater or t-shirt, but on a coffee mug? It’s quite fitting.

Who want’s to bet I have/don’t have the baby this weekend?! It’s kind of a fun game :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

// ONE Ikea always impresses me with their chair designs, I’m ogling over this outdoor seating option, it’s modern, sleek and simple // TWO Design Bloggers at Home, the next design book on my wish-list // THREE Cutest throw pillow ever, toss this on your sofa our outdoor seating and you’re 100% ready for summer! // FOUR get your fridge ready for summer entertaining with these super cute pineapple ice trays // FIVE who doesn’t love a classic sunburst mirror? I now have all the ample wall space to hang one of these bad boys!

This is the first weekend in quite a while where we really don’t have anything planned.  It feels so nice! I keep teasing my husband with a countdown to the # of days it’s just him and I.  I definitely think a date night is in order. Chipotle and a movie, here we come!

PS! Don’t forget about the Leather Hide Store giveaway happening right now! 2 days left to enter.

// ONE I’m in the phase of collecting art for our nursery, and this simple geometric fox print is to die for! PS Society6′s print quality is legit // TWO Jonathan Adler has it out to bankrupt me. Without this table my life isn’t complete. // THREE Serena & Lily is hot on my radar, mainly because they’re opening their first store here in SF! They’re based here so it only makes sense.  Anyway, the first thing I’m buying? This throw. You can’t stop me. // FOUR There’s something about this kitchen island that makes me weak in the knees.  // FIVE Second thing I’m buying from Serena & Lily? This stool.

Happy weekend everyone! Can you believe it? 22 days until my due date… the clock is ticking!

// ONE bentwood chairs are my kryptonite, not to mention reclaimed bentwood! Help me convince the mister because I need these for my dining table! // TWO hunting for some unique robe hooks for our entry and bathroom and I think I found the one! // THREE You’ll never guess where this coffee table is from… I’m OBSESSED! And it’s on sale! // FOUR Easter got me in the mood for baskets, and spring has me in the mood for picnics! Enter world’s cutest picnic basket here. // FIVE my new house has me hunting for new rugs, and I’m head over heels for this light grey tasseled rug.  Is it weird to want tassels on every rug in my home?

I’ve got two baby showers this weekend! Just in time to bring all the goodies back to our nursery, which we started working on this week.  There’s nothing like building your first crib to get you in the baby spirit :) Sneak peeks coming, promise!
