Happy Friday & a Few Links

Happy Friday, people! Whew, what a long week – right? I seriously felt like it never would end. That’s probably because I’ve barely left the house! Between frigid temperatures, freezing rain and three unexpected inches of snow, there wasn’t much percentage in driving around. It’s a miracle in itself that for once I/we didn’t need anything from the store. But, I definitely intend to make up for lost time this weekend!

Happy Friday & a Few Links

What a majority of this week looked like – cozy blankets, books and hot beverages in cute mugs. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram!

Ryan is home from work for the weekend, so we finally are off to see La La Land this afternoon. I already concluded that I’m going to fall in love and be obsessed with this movie, so it better not disappoint. Who else has seen it? Is it as amazing as I’ve heard it is? Beyond that, it probably will be much of the same around here – errands, house work and whatever other shenanigans we get ourselves into. When we’re together, there’s rarely a dull moment!

Before I leave to sing show tunes around the house to get in the mood for the movie (who am I kidding? I do this all the time anyways), here are a few of my favorite links from the week.

| Kristin Ess, the hairdresser responsible for Lauren Conrad’s locks and several other celebrities, is launching a hair product line at Target. *cue the excited squeals*

| Who knew that Amazon had such an awesome selection of vintage-inspired decor? Also, make sure to take a look around Sarah’s blog – it is one of my absolute favorites.

| These days, I’ve been using this relaxed waves tutorial to style my hair at least every other day. A 1.5″ barrel curling iron makes all the difference for that effortless look. I purchased and love this affordable option.

| I’m new to spaghetti squash, but this recipe for greek spaghetti squash toss has me willing to give it a try.

| Did you see what house project that we’re tackling next? I shared all the inspiration for our dream modern farmhouse master bedroom earlier in the week.

Have a great weekend! Talk to you next week!

Linking up with Amanda.

    I can’t wait to hear how you liked the movie, I’m itching to see it! And that sounds like a pretty good week to me- That’s what I’m hoping to do on my day off tomorrow!

    I’ve heard such great things about Lalaland, so I hope that you love it too! And as much as you’re probably hating the cold weather right now, I really wish that it was cooler here! It’s in the 70’s and it just doesn’t feel like winter! I hope that you have the best weekend!

    Hope you all have an awesome weekend together!! Your new blog look has me inspired and looking into making the switch to WordPress. When you switched did you notice that it hurt your traffic/comments/etc?

      Not at all – the switch to WordPress actually helped in those areas because of the plugins and better SEO. It’s a bit of work, but it’s worth it. Good luck!

    My husband is actually dying to watch it so maybe we will make a trip this weekend as well to watch it, I’m hoping it’s as amazing as it looks and I’m sure it will be! Happy Friday!

    Oh girl, it’s AMAZING. I saw it this week with a friend. I LOVED IT. Sigh. Swoon. It was AWESOME. Totally deserved all the Golden Globes it won.

      We absolutely LOVED it! Old Hollywood movies and musicals are my “thing,” so I loved that La La Land really paid tribute to that.
