Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley May 2, 2014

Happy Friday everyone! We’re starting on a new DIY project this weekend and these little furniture feet will be part of the creation. How funny that some of you thought they resembled silver julep cups, so did I! I’ve never been to the Kentucky Derby but it’s on my “things to experience in life” list – anyone attending the events year?


In lieu of a trip to Churchill Downs, join in on the fun with a trio of mint juleps like these three versions!

A few links I enjoyed this week . . .

  1. Living in Louisville, KY this time of year is THE BEST! Our schools even close for Oaks Day (Friday before Derby)! Although we’re not attending this year, we will be celebrating at home with great friends! It’s definitely worth attending at least once in your lifetime!

  2. Thank you for this blog. I look forward to your weekend reads, and I loved your Link to “Love Never Felt So Good”. I just gifted the song off iTunes , to my God Daughter. She had her first baby!
    Perfect song!

  3. I read the article about the confidence gap earlier this week and it is so helpful. Also, these are some of my favorite posts that you do! Thank you for them! :)

  4. Love the new profile picture. You need to rock that beach hair more often!!! :)
