Friday Favorites

It’s Friday, Friday finnnnnaaaaalllllly.  It was Josh’s first week at work and, as expected, I missed having him around the house.  So, I must say, I am quite excited to hold him captive on our trip to Missouri for a wedding.  We’ll hop on a flight tonight to Kansas City, rent a car tomorrow (cross your fingers it’s not a mini-van) to drive to Columbia, attend a fab wedding, dance the night away, drive back to KC on Sunday, and fly back home.  Whew, I think I’m tired already.  Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
