telling you something that you don't need to be told.

denim top: belk / tee: urban outfitters / jeans: aeropostle / 
leopard flats: jessica simpson / tote bag: coach / necklace: littlemissmomma

so i don't think i need to say this.
but you know it.
and i know it.
it's the weekend and it's time to celebrate it!


as i've been updating you here and twitter, i've been making lots and lots of these lovelies.
Creative Estates is less than 2 weeks away - eeeeekkk!
so excited and nervous at the same time. 
so don't mind the panic tweets when they come.
when i'm tweeting about my fingers hurting.
or that i ran out of a particular color of felt or beads.
or that i'm crying because my vendor booth looks ridiculously lame.
or that i can't wait to jump on hotel beds and eat peanut butter oreos with my blog buds. 
 yeah, don't mind me. just wanted to warn you that those updates might will be coming.


but you probably won't be getting those updates anytime this weekend.
'cause like i said, folks, we're celebrating the weekend in these parts.
so we're giving these fingers a break and enjoying suh-weet, quality time with family and friends.

what do you have planned this weekend, friend?

i'm looking forward to lunch with Lori (of ChicGeekDesigns - i love blogger-friend meet-ups!). and I am Number Four decided to make an appearance at the base theater, so i am pumped to finally see it. i also have this craving for a cookies and cream milkshake from chick-fil-a so might have to make that run after the movie. then who knows what else is on the agenda?

i just know it's the weekend and that's enough for me.
ya with me?

much love.
[happy friday, friend.]
