Hello, Friends! How are you? Are you up for a Saturday edition of my weekend link list? Yesterday’s work time was cut short — because we ended up taking out the three-quarter wall in the kitchen! Very exciting!! The space is so open now. Makes me feel like we have endless options. I’ll write more about it next week, but in the meantime, you can see updates on Instagram.

We have some fun stuff going on this weekend. A cross-country meet for Maude. A marching band performance for Ralph. A breakfast with friends for Olive. I’m going to spend the weekend sketching a thousand layouts and possibilities for the kitchen. And Ben Blair is headed to Santa Barbara! The four Blair Brothers are taking their father on a road trip to his home town. Isn’t that wonderful? Makes me happy.

What are you up to this weekend? In case you need a little added excitement, here are a few things I’ve wanted to share:

– Did you hear? Domino is back.

– I love this: It’s #Socktober!

– A nursery filled with stars.

– Remember Laura’s home tour? Well she just launched Kid & Coe, a company dedicated to simplifying family travel. Check it out.

Mom texts.

A Dr. Pepper Party!

– I’m almost out of my favorite French beauty product, Nuxe Oil, but (hooray!) found some at Bloomingdales.

– Really cool: DIY ipad cases made from canvas artwork.

– What your husband should be wearing.

Authentic crepes with Stephmodo.

– Fall dinner party inspiration.

– I’m hosting a fun Instagram photo contest with Pop & Lolli. Have you entered yet?

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


P.S. — Thank you so much for the comments and conversation on my post about Mary Lu. Seriously. I so appreciate your thoughts!
