What are you doing this weekend?

Happy Friday, friends! How have your weeks been? Mine's been great: my company's annual bash was Tuesday night and it was a blast; I played hooky (with permission!) on Wednesday and got a little R&R, including taking in an afternoon movie (The Five-Year Engagement; have you seen it?) and eating the best eggplant parmesan sub in Sarasota, both with some truly wonderful company; and I'm heading up to my parents' house this weekend to celebrate Mother's Day with my mom. It should be a nice weekend.

And because I had fun compiling last week's list, here a few fun links from around the web:

These hand-stamped pillows and tea towels from Row of Letters are so pretty (and inexpensive). (via Design*Sponge)

Jane's coral round-up is just lovely; what a happy color. (I'm wearing coral lipstick today, in fact!)

Don't these strawberry-lime-yogurt popsicles sound delicious?

Speaking of popsicles, PopCraft Pops in Sarasota makes great ones. (Try the salted caramel, the coconut cream or the strawberry-basil; get them at the downtown Sarasota farmer's market on Saturday mornings or at The Lollicake Queen on Hillview Street).

Also at the farmer's market: Jennifer Meyer of The Blue Peony sells bright, beautiful organic-cotton textiles (I've got my eye on an apron and some oven mitts).

I tweeted about these awesome Alkemie elephant earrings -- available locally at Juno and Jove -- last week and am still thinking about them. Love.

My dear friend Amie and her husband, Chris, are doing a "52 in 52" challenge -- they're reading 52 books in 52 weeks, and I love the way Ame's approaching the whole thing.

It's really no surprise that I love this blouse. (via All The Mountains)

More good advice from Bri. 

And finally, some of the lovely local ladies I posted about last week have an awesome feature -- a backyard bridal shower -- on The Everygirl as part of the site's Wedding Week. Check it out (and be inspired!) here.

What are you up to this weekend? Tell me, and I'll see you back here on Monday. xo

P.S. Thanks for all your sweet comments on this post. You guys make sharing easy.
