Happy Weekend, Friends! How are you? Do you have anything you’re looking forward to this weekend? You’ll never guess what our big plans are: we’ll be working on our taxes. Woot!

We deferred our filing last April, and the new due date is October 15th. Have you ever deferred before? It always seems like a good idea to me in April, and then a really crummy idea in October! : ) It’s not that I mind the task — I actually enjoy that feeling of getting all my information organized. But who wants to think about taxes in the fall, when I could be daydreaming about French cottages instead? (By the way, we’re favoring the one above at the moment.)

To stay motivated, I keep reminding myself how good it will feel to get this task marked off my list. Fist-bump of solidarity to anyone else working on a not-favorite project this weekend!

While I crunch numbers and record receipts, here are a few things I’ve been wanting to share with you:

– This is going to be a very cool interview series! (+ more balance here.)

– Gold nugget magnets.

– Ralph sent me this video. It’s a good one!

Fathers of girls.

Umbrella sculpture.

– On my wishlist.

– Paint-dipped furniture.

– And I LOVED reading your comments about nicknames. Every single one brought a grin! Thank you for that.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already.


P.S. — I’ll be waving goodbye to September and welcoming October on Pinterest with some gorgeous Fall picks (and Halloween stuff too!). Come see.
