Weekend Pretties

6T5C2219

Another week gone by, already?  And we’re in May?  But how?  This week flew by but didn’t really have any major newsworthy events.  I spent the days it was supposed to be raining spring cleaning and the sunny days tirelessly working in the garden again – but it’s almost finished!  The big flower bed I‘ve been working so hard to tame has been a lot more work than I anticipated, but it makes such a big difference.  Neighbors have been stopping by to give encouraging words and say how much better the yard looks.  I planted some shasta daisy and peony plants and am headed outside to lay down some wildflower seeds and mulch now before heading off to a lunch date on a patio (it’s forecasted to be sunny and 70 today!).  Monday is Cinco de Mayo and that also happens to be our 10th anniversary – me and Frank’s anniversary that is (Frank’s my dog).  So tomorrow my family is coming over for a celebratory feast and I’m scrambling to find a mini sombrero for Frank to wear.  He used to have one, but I got rid of it in a purge years ago (curses!).  Hope you are having a great weekend!  Here are a few interesting things I found this week.

Ingenious cooking tricks.

We’re all familiar with gender wage gaps – but did you know it happens in children’s allowances??

A new gluten free flour and I’ll bet you can’t guess what it’s made from.

USA and Canada: no touching allowed.

A post about giving birth that perfectly sums up my frustrations with the standard hospital systems and protocols.

Junk food from the 90s was pretty atrocious.

The new coconut water.

26 real places that look like they’ve been taken out of fairy tales.

Kate and William’s anniversary was this week (I love them!) and to celebrate, here are pictures of them looking perfectly in love (I just love them!).

Real life inspirations behind Disney characters.

A gorgeous and unexpected way to decorate your kitchen.

Look at the lights over the dining table in this house!

A beautiful story about marriage and getting through “for better or worse”.
