Friday Things


Today is the happiest of Fridays, as one of my besties and I are heading off to Freiburg, Germany! We’ve been wanting to take a trip together since she studied abroad in Freiburg our junior year of college and it’s finally worked out. We’ll be taking day trips to France and Switzerland and exploring the Black Forest region of Germany. Eeee! I can’t wait. I have posts lined up for next week so regular programming will continue as usual, but follow along on Instagram, as I’ll be sharing updates throughout!

Here are some links for your perusal this weekend… have a great one and enjoy March while it lasts!

Of note…

– A unique, cute way to get married…. not my thing personally, but how sweet is this story? For the record, &pizza is delicious.

This article talks about the recent rise of Nordstrom Rack which I will say, has been great lately. I’m definitely partial to Nordstrom’s main stores, but it’s nice to get a behind the scenes look at their outlet M.O. when so many outlets have gone significantly downhill in recent years.

Sydney posted this pancake recipe… and now I want pancakes.

– Does this list of the most popular cereals surprise you? My beloved Honey Bunches of Oats is off the list but Cheerios seriously stands the test of time.

Emily’s 10 House Rules is worth a read because no matter your personality/living situation, some of these are good practices to adopt. It’s not always possible, but I particularly like the “Keep your house 10 minutes from being guest-ready” rule.

Another Rosie recipe to bookmark that’s reiterating the fact that I desperately need a cast iron skillet.
