Link Lovin’ Friday.

Oh Friday Friday, one of my bestest days of the week! So glad you are here my friend…and so glad YOU are here too, lovely readers. Just wanted to share some fun things with you that caught my eye this past week:

Summer has kicked into high gear and I’m sure many of you have little roadtrips and family outtings planned. I loved this sweet USA cork board that the lovely Grace over at ever-inspiring design*sponge created as a fun way to map out your travels. I think it would be really fun to make one shaped like your state (HOLLA MICHIGAN!).

To find out how to make one of these for yourself, swing by design*sponge.

My friend Jenny turned me on to her sweet pal Andrea of Hula¬†Seventy. She’s officially on the top of my list of “Girlies I Need to Know Better”. Her photography is so dreamy and these snaps from their summer of Road Trippin’ makes me smile.

Find more awesomeness over at Hula 70.

Our sweet pals Jamie and Jacinda at Prudent Baby always have such fun crafty ideas. I love these red, white and blue jelly beans pouches.

Complete instructions over at Prudent Baby. Or, you know, bribe someone crafty like Dottie to help you out.

Speaking of my Crafty Gal Pal, THIS ONE GOES OUT TO YOU MISS DOTTIE! You are a little slice of heaven, lady. Thanks for being such an awesome travel buddy last weekend! *mwuah!*

Found on Scissoring via Grosgrain Fabulous.

One of my other favorites is the brilliant Teri over at Giddy Giddy. Look at this adorable Fourth of July romper she made! Yeah. Vintage Rhino fabric?? So good.

Find even more inspiration over at Giddy Giddy.

My darling girl Pilgrim is so thoughtful. Even though she’s an Aussie, she did this bang up 4th of July Etsy roundup just for her State-side pals! As usual, she has read my mind and procured a charming collection of EVERYTHING I LOVE. Sigh.

Don’t forget we have an AMAZING $50 Gift Certificate giveaway happening for Draw! Pilgrim. Enter today!

One of my new favorite finds is Make Something Happy, from the ladies of Rock, Scissor, Paper. I loved this flashback post they did on last Fourth of July where they had a CAKE vs PIE throw down party! What a cool idea, huh.



Just in case you were wondering….CAKE WON! Check out the full Cake vs Pie Battle over at Make Something Happy. It’s awesome.

And finally….a little Fourth of July Sweet Treat for you to watch with the Kiddos. This little short from animation rockstars PES just makes me smile. Fireworks + Peeps= AWESOMENESS. Hope you dig it!

Have a super duper HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY my friends! We will be in a BBQ induced food coma on Monday and taking the day off. We’ll be back again on Tuesday and will expect a full report on yer weekend. Over and out!

Meet Griffin! Our


Guess what time it is friends? Yep, another adorable kiddo is rounding out our week! Meet Griffin, an impossibly sweet little four year old from Northern California. This outdoorsy little lad is really just as cute as can be, don’t you agree? We love that his style is colorful and totally adorable yet clearly keeps him comfy whether he’s sitting inside reading a book or hiking with his parents in the redwoods. Presenting: GRIFFIN!

Unlike my beloved child, little Griffin is a world class eater. He not only loves to help his mommy Toria in the kitchen, he loves to nibble on his daddy’s famous mac n’ cheese, spaghetti & meatballs, cheesy eggy omelets, burritos, papusas, sushi, odwalla juice, bagels with lox, cream cheese sandwiches and MORE! (I’m dying’ kiddo….can you give Wolfie a lesson in SUSHI please??) His favorite color is green, he loves the Beatles and he’s obsessed with his engineer overalls and rain boots. Griffin also likes anything with wheels but especially adores story time. Among his favorite books: Trashy Town, The Incredible Book-Eating Boy, The Giant Jam Sandwich, The Runaway Dinner, Arnie the Donut. I think its safe to say that Griffin may grow up to be a famous food critic or star of Top Chef 2030. His mama says, “Griffin is a big sweetie. He loves the playground, bouncy houses, running around playing tag, farting and then telling you about it!” (my kinda kid….toot toot!) Hurray for Griffin!!! You rock little dude!
