Long Week/End

BAUBLE SALE: What better way to celebrate Memorial Day than with some new baubles? Bauble Bar is offering a special 30% discount code in honor of the long weekend — just use the code MEMORIALDAY on full priced items! I’ve been eyeing this Tassel Lariat necklace

HATERS GONNA HATE: You guys saw the latest installment of celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves, right? Here’s a follow up on how said mean tweeters reacted once they realized their tweets had been made famous.

THE FUTURE OF BLOGGING: A great read if you blog, or like to read them.

MARRIAGE TRUTHS: Meg and I have both been in seriously long term relationships, and I found her 9 things she’s learned after 9 years of marriage to be spot on.

IT MIGHT SOUND CRAZY BUT IT AIN’T NO LIE: That time Nikki from Cupcakes for Breakfast met Joey Fatone from NSYNC.

KERN, BABY, KERN: Type nerds unite! Tristan shared this hilarious kerning game. Well, there went 45 minutes of my life (and worth every second).

AT THE DRIVE IN: I always think of Memorial Day as the unofficial start of summer. Harper’s Bazaar put together a list of the top 10 best summer films. Is your favorite on there?

COCKTAIL TIME: A blackberry, Meyer lemon and gin cocktail. Hello, perfect barbecue libation.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Alex recently completed this stunning, bold home design, and I was smitten!

TRUE AND YET I DON’T WANT TO BELIEVE IT: An article about how the effects of vacation really don’t last that long. Depressing. Live it up while you can this weekend!

DON’T MISS HAPPY HOUR: This week, Meg and I hosted The B Bar’s first ever Twitter chat! The topic was blog to biz. Thanks to everyone who joined in!! If you missed out, you can still see the best tweets from the chat by signing up to receive The B Bar’s newsletter (but hurry, we’re going to send out that newsletter soon!). And, in tandem with the chat, Meg and I each shared our own blog to biz stories on The Well. Check it out!

Woohoo! Three day weekend! I really can’t believe that it’s Memorial Day of TWENTY FOURTEEN. I’m so excited to be hosting our friends this weekend (they arrive later today!). Now if only the weather will cooperate (fingers crossed). Let’s see, what else happened this week? We ordered some custom canvas prints from art.com and those arrived. They’re all portraits of Lucy that Yvonne took. Bizarre? Maybe, but we kind of love them and think they’re hilarious. I’m going to write a little bit about how we created these soon, so if you want to order your own custom canvases from art.com, you’ll have the deets!

What’s everyone up to over the weekend? Hitting the beach? Road tripping? Doing absolutely nothing and enjoying every second of it? I’d love to hear about what you’re up to! Just as a heads up, I’ll be taking Monday off from blogging to enjoy the holiday and hang out with our friends. Jury’s still out on Tuesday, but I’ll try to cobble something together. :) Hope everyone has a fantastic Memorial Day!!


Here’s what happened last Week/End

And the Week/End before that.

    What a great collection of links!
    Love the sale at Bauble Bar..I could buy it all! Holly’s post on the Future of Blogging was so interesting, crazy how much has changed over the years and interesting to think about the direction things are headed.

    Hope that you have a wonderful long weekend! I am headed up to the coast of Maine to spend time with family and friends. I am so excited for a little break, time to relax, sleep in and have fun!

    Another great edition of Long Week/End, especially the article about the future of blogging. Very interesting.

    I’m not traveling anywhere, just hosting a game night for friends. Have a wonderful weekend!
