This week I:

+ was a very busy girl and guest posted in four different places! On Modern Eve (where I shared my dream spring break destination if money were no object!), The Real Mean Girl (where today I posted on five things you probably don’t know about me), Julip Made (to participate in Julie’s fabulous new series “If Bloggers Ruled the World”), and on Glitter Guide (where I concocted a St. Patrick’s Day cocktail that’s a huge departure from the typical green beer situation).
+ made an appointment to try on a wedding dress next week. Fingers crossed. At least now I actually know to make an appointment, and Tamra has been giving me other great pointers too.
+ signed a contract for our venue. Will share details next week, I think!
+ Had lunch with Erin, drinks with Crystalin, and wine with Kate. I was quite the social butterfly.
+ Loved reading through all your comments and emails about our impending vacance en France. Thanks for all the insights! I’m more excited than ever to go.

Whew, Happy Friday! Is it just me, or did this week feel a little off? I think it was the time change. I woke up sort of disoriented a lot of the days and had trouble focusing. True to form though, as the weekend arrives I feel like I’m hitting my stride — here’s hoping that lasts through next week too!

Tomorrow, I’m very excited to be hosting a St. Paddy’s Day party. I’ve never hosted one before — mostly, this was the weekend that worked for me and for friends, and it just so happened to land on this holiday! We have friends from LA coming in for this one, so it’ll be fun getting everyone together. Cross your fingers that Sunday isn’t too painful.

Link of the week: I haven’t been able to get these DIY candy poppers that Annemarie shared last week out of my mind. They’re originally from Style Me Pretty, as created by Posh Paperie. Aren’t they cute? I imagine it would be kind of hilarious to save all these toilet paper rolls to make them (Joe would think I’d officially gone crazy), but how ingenious!!

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    Hope your party goes well- we’re visiting friends for a birthday & going to our favorite 80’s cover band. I’m struggling with a green 80’s outfit!

    My colleague is going to Bora Bora on his honeymoon and I’m so jealous!! My dream (spring break or any break or any spring) vacation is South Africa… I’m dying to check out Cape Town & do a safari.

    The cocktail you posted on Glitter Guide marries up three of my most favorite things! Yes! I am ever so excited to try. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I’ll probably have green beer in hand and do as the locals do- at my local.
