Weekend Pretties July 18 3Things I’m loving this week include the summer produce from my farmer’s market and new treasures from my husband’s grandparents to replace *some* of the ones I’m giving up.

Friday already?!  Where did this week go?  And how is the summer already on a downward slope in to winding down?  Crazy.

I hope your week was a good one.  If you saw my post yesterday, you can guess what I”ve spent most of the week doing – letting go, throwing out, donating, selling and generally decluttering.  Also making room for some new pretties that Parker and I picked up last weekend when we went to help clean out his grandparent’s house.  I didn’t get those suitcases I mentioned, but I got a few sweet things that feel special.  This weekend I plan on relaxing, maybe sneaking in a few minutes of pool time before the neighborhood kids swarm in, and possibly baking something sweet for my hubs that isn’t too detrimental to all the clean eating that we’ve been sticking to {poor thing liked it better last year when his brand new wife was making pies every weekend ;) }.

Here are some fun things I found around the web this week that you might enjoy if you find yourself in a browsing mood. Have a great weekend!  I’ll be back Monday with a tutorial/recipe on how to make your own almond butter that is soooo good!

A mac daddy list of all-natural, good for you beauty and personal care products you can trust.

Cute!  Mini Honeycomb Skewers!
