Happy Friday + Weekly Links

Ah Friday, we meet again! There’s nothing like the feeling of a Friday, the beginning of a weekend and a little time off. Hopefully you’ve got something fun planned. My Dad and family are headed here for a visit and I’m hoping to make it to the apple orchard for the last time this season to stock up on cider donuts and hot apple cider. Yum!

Next week, our little guy is 3 months old. Craziness! I have no idea where the past 3 months have gone, but I’m really excited. He’s started to resemble more of a little human lately. You know… being able to hold his head up and all. It makes a huge difference! Oh, and did I mention the sleep? He’s been a champ in that arena lately, and we’re hoping it keeps up (although, we are NOT looking forward to the 4-month sleep regression we hear so much about). Oh, babies…

And on to a few fun things I found around the internet this week!


Creating a capsule wardrobe completely terrifies me and makes me excited, all at once. The idea of walking into my closet and not feeling overwhelmed with what to wear (especially with my post-baby body and a ton of clothes that don’t quite fit right anymore) makes my heart so happy. But getting rid of something that maybe I’ll wear eventually… freaks me out. Not gonna lie. Listen to Jess Lively talk with Caroline about creating a capsule wardrobe.

Solly Baby is hosting an awesome giveaway. This was one of our best baby purchases to-date, and the thought of traveling around the world with my man and my baby using these wraps makes my heart happy. You can enter the giveaway here (but if you win, you have to promise to send me a little souvenir from your trip).


Shaylyn Nelson finally opened her watercolor print shop and I’m wanting… oh, just about all of them! I want this one for our bathroom and this one for our bedroom and this one for Logan’s room and this one for my office.

I mentioned on Facebook that I was going to be testing out 17Hats. Guys… it’s awesome so far. I didn’t realize all of the different things you can do with it — estimate, invoicing, send contracts, send questionnaires. Even pull in emails from your regular inbox to specific projects, with a specific email address. It simplifies the entire customer experience and keeps everything in one place. I took the plunge and purchased the full year subscription. It’s only $149/year, and when you total up all of the costs for the other software you’re using (Freshbook, Echosign, Basecamp, etc), it’s totally worth it. I’m not 100% yet if it will replace Basecamp, but my hope is that it will!


I’m dying to make these soon. I think I’ll pick up a gallon of apple cider at the apple orchard this weekend and make them on Sunday. 🙂

If you’re just getting started in the design or freelance field, this webinar might help. It’s next Tuesday!

Happy Friday, friends! Have an awesome weekend!
