Happy Friday! It’s the end of the week, which means we’re just a little bit closer to the holidays (and our family vacation!) This weekend will be a blur of work, DIY projects, present-wrapping, and a playdate on Sunday to take advantage of the one warmer day this week. It’s 22° right now. Whaaaaaa? Hubby is working straight through the weekend, so it’s just us girls. I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram, facebook, twitter, and snapchat → glitterinclexi (lots of fun behind-the-scenes there). Follow along!
How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?
With that, a few little love notes …

Dear coffee fanatics, have you heard of an Aeropress coffee maker, $30, which combines the technology of a French Press and a pour-over? Sounds way too cool. “All my coffee-loving friends pack an AeroPress when they hit the road,” says food writer Ruth Reichl. “It is, they assure me, the only way to be sure of getting a decent cup of coffee.”
Dear fun facts, turns out, blue is the most popular color on the internet.
Dear fellow book nerds, you have to check out this wine bottle with a twist. I kind of love it.
