a friday roundup just for you, and an announcement!

hiya friends, happy friday!  i have something exciting brewing over the weekend... should all go as planned you'll be looking at a freshly remodeled house in the hills on monday!  that's right, the blog design is done, the programming is almost done, and very soon we'll be hanging out in a much prettier place.  i can't wait to share with you, i'm so beyond excited! *sneak peek here.

now, to keep you entertained on your lazy sunday...(after the jump!)

if arranged dog marriages were a thing, i would set bean up with this pup- her obvious soul mate

i need to eat these immediately.  also, a bit of a crush on her blog.  and maybe her too.

i just bought these shorts (in cream) for next month's trip to tulum and i couldn't love them more! also, this dress is on it's way.  i'm really, really hopeful.

i loved this model's bravery, candor and willingness to bring awareness to an important topic

well, this just made my heart melt into a sloppy puddle

mr. lou mora just updated his tumblr and there's a whole lot of radness going on

a little something to make your bathroom trips more fun! (i'm not sure i stand behind that sentence but i've got nothing better at the moment)

four of her favorites could very easily make it onto my crazy wishlist

a fun and creative take on hair tutorials, i dig it. you will too.

a DIY project i'd love to tackle. someone lend me their sewing machine!  and waffle maker.  i'll sit around eating waffles and crafting all weekend.  please!

allright now, you have a great weekend and i'll see you on monday! xx- sarah

thanks rita! we're staying here: we were going to stay at coqui coqui but they overbooked and then wanted to move us into the jungle. not having it, haha! can't wait to swim in the ocean and lay in the sun. and eat mexican food. so great that you're going too! where are you staying? have you been before?

Yay! So excited for the redesign! I'm obsessed with Oh, Ladycakes too... if only I had a waffle maker!!

WELLLLLLLL.. can I just say that I nearly peed my pants when I clicked the "eat these" link and it went to my blog? Seriously, blushing. And my week has been made.

Psst! I totally have a crush on you.

thanks @iz!

@tina i think we both need to bite the bullet and just buy one. even if we only ever make those waffles, it will be worth it!

@ashlae yay! i love mutual interweb crushes. :)

ooh! we are going in march and are booking a place this week - either coqui coqui, ahau tulum, or playa azul - like you, what matters most is ocean front! i've never been but my husband rented a house right next to coqui coqui with his family a year or two ago and fell in love. he swears it is the best place ever that you can get to with a quick nonstop flight (we are in MN)... australia being the best place we've ever been otherwise. i'm a little nervous about the simple accomodations/lack of electricity/ac/etc. but am excited regardless!
