TGIF! I have a glamorous weekend ahead, doing the laundry, installing our AC (we've finally caved) and catching up on errands lost to last weekend's festive birthday times.  My sweet sister-in-law is taking me for brunch tomorrow though, so I can pinpoint at least one Bloody Mary in my future. Hooray! Have a beautiful weekend one and all. See below for my weekly round up.
