What are you up to this week? I’m missing Louisiana already (we had an awesome time there last week!) and am still reeling over the book I finished on the plane ride home. Have you read it? Many of you mentioned on this post that you’d like to see me tackle more book posts on Finding Delight and I’m happy to oblige. I have a few reviews in the works and also an idea for an Introvert’s Book Club (would you like to hear more about that??). But while we’re on the subject, I’m happy to announce that the winner of the Spring Fling Giveaway is Katja of Katnapped.com. I’ll be in touch! Thanks to everyone for participating and keep an eye out for more giveaways round these parts. Ok, now that’s squared away, on to the links…

I’m loving the knotted hair tie idea! I’m always running out of hair ties so this would be great!
Lovely round-up as always! That knotted hair tie idea is actually brilliant 🙂
Thank you. 🙂 I want to give that DIY a try.
“Funeral strippers” were two words I never imagined going together, ever! haha!
I know, right! Craziness.
The yellow/mustard color for Spring is a YES from me! It can really put a whole outfit together.
I bet it would look beautiful on you, Sondra!
Lovely roundup! That yellow color is very nice and interesting. I’m not personally good with wearing it but if you nail a look with that it will definitely be seen. And those knotted hair ties are super cute! 🙂
That’s very true. It’s definitely a risk but one that might have a nice reward!
I’m definitely into hearing about these books! I have intentions to make myself a book list for summer reading!
Awesome! I hope you’ll post about your list. I’d love to see what’s on it. 🙂
