i’m a summer girl at heart {plus some friday finds}

i posted this quote last year (here’s the print i designed, if you want to use it) and i just had to play around with it again. it’s super chilly here in san francisco (new englanders, bare with me ok? my blood has thinned out from living here for almost 4 years, and 40 degrees is cold to me!), and we’re expecting a rainy weekend. my lovely friend kiele posted a summer inspiration post yesterday and it reminded me of this quote that i love so much.

anyways…any weekend plans? this girl has a birthday on sunday so we will be eating glittery cake pops and chips and dip and cheese and whatever else is totally not on my trainer’s “shred” list, so i’m pretty excited about that. i also have a shoot on the morning of my birthday with some pretty special people, so that will be a fun start to my day!

til then, though, here are some fun finds i came across this week:

i love how imperfectly perfect this tangerine cake is.

did you see the floral heaven over on ruffled this week? this takes floral design to a whole new level, am i right?

if anyone is watching the games this weekend, i will live vicariously through you if you make this awesome dip.

my puppy is insane. this is his daily ritual with his squeaky toy.

i think i’ll start my weekend off with one of these, please.

keep warm, my friends!

    Cute round up! And happy early birthday!!! I’ll be thinking of you and hoping your shoot goes fantastically (which of course it will, seeing as how it’s you putting it together!). Enjoy your glittery cake pops! :) xoxox
