the cure once sang,
“i don’t care if monday’s blue,
tuesday’s great and wednesday, too
thursday i don’t care about you
it’s friday i’m in love.”
so in honor of friday, and every friday moving forward, i’m kicking-off a little series i’d like to call “it’s friday, i’m in love.” these posts will be dedicated to little bits of whimsy -photographs, links, songs, youtube clips, recipes, articles of clothing, etc., with the ultimate aim being a smile on your face and an excitement for the weekend ahead.
so without further adieu. it’s friday and i’m in love with:
one || as if my love for seth meyers wasn’t big enough, he posted this magnificent #tbt photo on late night with seth meyers’ instagram account (@latenightseth) yesterday:
and then followed it up with this video and an apology -“i just want to say i’m sorry i thought this was an okay haircut to have.” oh seth, never change.
two || peonies are back at trader joe’s. i repeat, peonies are back at trader joe’s. i bought a bouquet of bright pink ones for my momma last sunday but i’m thinking about going back this weekend and snagging a couple of bunches for myself. in addition to sweet peas and tulips, peonies are my favorite bloom.
also remember this peony scene from the five year engagement (<– a highly underrated movie, i might add)?
three || in anticipation of their upcoming tour rolling through southern california (and subsequently, my and my little sis’ field trip to the hollywood bowl to see them on june 5th!), i have been listening to onerepublic’s latest single “love runs out” on repeat. it’s so catchy and fun and oh my goodness i have the biggest crush on ryan tedder. anyway, if you’re looking for a toe-tapping beat to get you through these last few hours before the holiday weekend, i highly suggest you hit play:
four || my friend rachel recently(ish) launched a new blog called coffee & tacos. it’s pretty much an extension of her awesomeness. follow along as she “connects with others through food, travel, faith & community.” and also through coffee and tacos, natch. i’m drooling over her recent post featuring a recipe for peanut butter cup pie. holy yum, y’all. also wasn’t she the most stunning bride?
five || thanks to a little innocent instagram stalking, i have learned that not only is temecula home to many a fabulous winery (and cough, almond champagne-ry, cough), but also a BLUEBERRY FARM. and not only that, but you can grab a bucket and pick some blubes yourself! my friend T and i have made a pact to get ourselves up the i15 very soon. we’ll report back, probably with blue-stained fingers and clothes.
six || and lastly, i love pinterest for so many many reasons. but one of my favorite things that i have discovered during my hours of mindless pinning are the myriad of quotes, sayings, and phrases of encouragement that always seem to show up on my newsfeed just when i need them most. i found this one early this morning and i can’t think of a better reminder. be kind to yourself, you’re doing the best you can (and guess what? the best you can is more than enough).
so until next friday, happy weekending!0
