Friday Favorites {4.6.12}

Wow, is it already Friday? Between keeping Nico entertained (he's out of school this week for Spring break) and doing my daily photography assignments for the class I'm taking, the week has flown by. Don't cha just love when that happens? And I'm super pumped for the weekend, too! I've picked up almost everything for the kids Easter baskets and can't wait to see their faces on Easter morning! I must say, they're making out pretty good this year. Also, we're really hoping to get reservations for this brunch (not healthy at all), but right now they're fully booked. Such a bummer. Keeping our fingers crossed that somebody cancels last minute.

In other news, I've finally decided to cancel my Weight Watchers membership. It's just not working for me anymore, y'all. I've gained 2 lb. this week, and still have like half my points left in my bank (hence my okayness with doing brunch Sunday, because could it really get much worse?). How does this even make sense? I realize that I can adjust my points to a smaller number if the current allowance isn't working, but isn't this what I pay WW to do? I just think it's time to try something else. So, beginning Monday, I plan to start using My Fitness Pal and see how that goes. Mainly because I've had luck with calorie counting in the past (i.e. old WW), it's free, and I've heard good things. If you have any other suggestions, I'd love to hear 'em, though. 

Okay, enough diet talk. Let's get to my favorites, shall we?

1. I know there's been a lot of speculation surrounding the Kony 2012 campaign and their motives, but I think we can all agree that the LRA needs to be stopped. If you've already seen the first movie, I encourage you to watch Part 2.

2. So many clever ideas in this list of 10 Ways to Wear a Silk Scarf!

3. I've been obsessing over these chalkboard spice jars for months, but now, thanks to this tutorial, I can make my own!

4. A website that plans your garden for you? Yes, please!

5. Jen has seriously gotta me one of the most creative mommy bloggers out there. Just look at these Easter baskets she made!

6. How cool is Arlo's nursery?! I just love Melissa's design aesthetic!

7. I like to buy natural, cruelty-free products when I can. Drea's put together a great list of them here.

8. This tutorial on How to Make Jazzy Home Movies on your computer is so helpful!

9. I am so making one of these doormats! LOVE.

10. And while I'm at it, I'd like to make some of these magnets, too!

Happy Easter weekend, everyone!

  1. Do you like the class that you're taking.  I've considering doing one for a long time but still haven't taken the plunge.  

  2. Yes, so far I'm really enjoying it. I mean, it's not the same as taking a college course, but, for what it is, I think it's really good. And, I signed up last fall when it was "pay what you can", so I only payed 20 bucks for it (which I definitely think it was worth!).

  3. I love seeing my spice jars on here!! Let me know when you make yours!
