I hope everyone is having a great week! Did you do anything fun over the weekend? On Saturday, Chet and I went to Arcade Odyssey and Tropical Park! I like the older games at the arcade–pinball, Tapper, Burger Time. We had never been to Tropical Park before, but as with all the parks we’ve encountered in Miami it was well maintained and lots of fun. I hope all the Mamas out there enjoyed their special day on Sunday! Now, let’s talk links! There’s a lot of long-form this week so grab a cup of tea and get comfortable…

What’s everyone up to this week? I’ve gotten back on the wedding planning wagon and am looking forward to a few purchases that should be arriving in the mail soon, including another wedding dress and 18 feet of bunting. We also scored a guestbook and a whole bunch of chalkboard signs for SUPER cheap at an office supply store that’s going out of business. Now I’ve just gotta get the invitations printed and I’ll feel proper on top of things. Hope you have a great rest of your week, and here are some little internet gems that I thought you might like…
