Happy Friday, friends! I'm off to a kid-filled weekend babysitting and Sunday School teaching. While I truly teach and work with children every single day, it's something that I love and am grateful that I can love and enjoy the work I do. Enough of that, though.

Here's to weekends, relaxation, sleeping in, and living in yoga pants (right?)!

Because every interview with Shauna Niequist is a good one. 

Hidden messages in logos. Can you spot them?

For my fellow grammar geeks. Note: stationary means standing still, like a stationary bike, or piece of exercise equipment. Stationery, on the other hand, refers to paper and envelopes sent in snail mail.

And for my fellow single ladies. Amber nailed it again!

A seasonal harvest feast sounds good to me!

So this blew my mind.

And so did this wedding (and the photographer's mad skills!).

Adding this to my wishlist!

This sounds scrumptious.

A super cute advent calendar idea.

And some super cute candied apples!

This is why I'm a huge fan of to-do lists.

Silhouette DIY projects are always fun.

And I'm always a fan of anything marbled.

Way too cute. 

This post made me grateful that I've got two great sisters of my own.

And a new jewelry shop that I know you're going to love as much as me.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!


  1. I don't know what's better about the slap bracelets... that they're actually tape measures or Joey's face.

  2. I love that Advent calender idea! We celebrate Advent in our family, so I'm always looking for new ideas. Hidden messages in logos make me smile.

  3. thank you for linking my post! you are the best :)

  4. That wedding. So. Gorgeous. I've been doing nothing but stare at gorgeous wedding photography for the past few weeks, because I'm assisting/second shooting at actual wedding next month and I'm so excited/nervous!

  5. that post on singleness was so spot on girl! I loved it! I also loved how it didn't have all of those cliche things that people say, i know they mean well but it get's old after a while.
    That feast looked so fun!
    that wedding was so beautiful and the pictures! shoot!
    that cake looks so good! I wanna make it! :)
    to- do lists are my thing as well!

  6. Yeah, that face is pretty epic, haha. :) Is that guy from Friends? I've been meaning to see if my library has that show because everyone talks/refers to it all the time! :)

  7. Same! We don't do a lot with Advent calendars anymore but we still do light candles and such. I have been on the lookout for cute ideas, though, because I hope to keep that tradition when I have kids (a long time from now, but still). :)

  8. Thank YOU for writing it! You always have the best, most honest, and most real (for lack of a better word) words when it comes to your blog--especially your singleness posts. :)

  9. It is!!! And you totally need to see it. It's hilarious!!

  10. Ooh, a second shooter?!?! That's awesome, Kelly! I've always wanted to do something like that and it is so cool that you have the chance to do that! :)

  11. Girl, you know how much I NEED words/posts about singleness to be free from cliches. :) I'm pretty sure we've talked about it, but even though they mean well, they're not always the words we need/want to hear. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  12. I feel like I've been missing out on it. Looking right now to see if my library has it! :)

  13. That image...BEAUTIFUL and dreamy. Love these links. I'm really interested in getting/ doing an advent calendar. I've actually never done one before!

  14. Thanks, Jenna! I am a huuuuge fan of anything foggy/frosty right now (the photographs almost make up for the fact that I'm freezing when I take them!). :)

    And I didn't do a lot of Advent calendars growing up (except the storebought ones as a kid), either. I love the idea of them and really want to make them when I have kids of my own! :)

  15. oh i know. I am the same way girl! :)
    I've been meaning to send you an email, cause i miss our email conversations!

  16. I love lists! :) & Shauna Niequist. And snap bracelets?! Blows my mind! And apples cake?! Oh my yummmm!

  17. That snap bracelet thing blew my mind, too! Who would've guessed they're made from measuring tapes? :)

  18. WOAH. the snap bracelets were insane! how incredible!
    and thanks for the shoutout to m yshop! i'm sooooo excited to browse all of these links!

  19. Haha, those were my thoughts exactly when I saw the snap bracelet thing! I feel like I need to try it out now. :)

    And you are so welcome for the shout out. Your hard work and creativity deserve it allll!

  20. those logos are awesome! I knew a couple and was able to spot some before reading, but most were a surprise! I NEVER knew that about stationary and stationery! I have two snap bracelets from elementary school and a long time ago one of the edges started to peel and I saw the measuring tape. love those images from the wedding!!! Love those marbled clay dishes! I want to make some soo bad! That apple cake looks YUM! Love that family session!
