Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, lovely friends! How was your week? I gotta say, I’m pretty psyched to spend the next couple of days in my jammies, binge watching The X-Files in preparation for Sunday’s premiere. Yep, it’s a glamorous life I lead. What about you guys? What’s in your Netflix queue these days? I still need to watch Making a Murderer, among other things…no spoilers! Now let’s get the weekend started with a few fun links.

Our favorite weekly links from around the web!

Have an awesome weekend!

Stationery Roundup: Funny Christmas Cards

So, it has been brought to my attention that Christmas is next week. How did that sneak up on me so quickly?! I honestly thought I had at least a couple of weeks left to prepare. This oversight means that I have not yet sent out my Christmas cards, which is a non-negotiable holiday tradition for me. If you’re as behind as I am, well, it’s your lucky day! I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite funny Christmas cards, perfect to break up the flow of monotonous nativity scenes (sorry, Jesus) and generic “Happy Holidays!” fare.

Do you send out holiday cards? Or am I the only one who’s still obsessed with snail mail?

Stationery Roundup: V-Day Edition


I’m a huge fan of snail mail. HUGE. There’s nothing more exciting than looking in your mailbox to find that someone has sent you a little token of affection, whether it’s a postcard or a glorious care package. Plus, it’s such a great way to stay connected when your friends live far away. Jules and I lived in different states (and for a little while, different countries) for ten years, and sending each other some love through the mail always made the distance a lot easier. Every time I saw her familiar handwriting on a piece of mail, it made me smile (still does, in fact)!

In my mind, Valentine’s Day is an excellent opportunity to lavish your friends (both near and far) with some extra affection. Here are some of the best V-Day cards for your girlfriends – we’ve got sweet, silly, sarcastic, and everything in between.

My personal faves are 2, 10 and 12. Do you and your besties swap Valentine’s cards? Or even better, celebrate Galentine’s Day, Leslie Knope-style?
