The Friday Report

summer

Wait, it’s Friday already??? We apologize for no Wednesday Wish List this week, the past few days (weeks) have taken us VOF girls by storm. I’ve been exploring working in Denver and C has been wedding planning at lightning speed (making me feel like I’m falling behind)! Without further ado, here are some places on the interweb that have caught our eye this week.

Sometime you just need to lighten the mood. Thankfully, puppies and kittens usually do the trick.

I love this list about girlfriends, everyone needs a great friend (shout out to C and our “Tias”!).

I think cell phone companies had a hand in create this awesome/terrible app.

This real life (and beautiful) wedding just rekindles our Friday Night Lights obsession.

Who doesn’t want man-candy (read: ryan gosling) dangling from their earlobes?

A reminder from some little ones to keep things light.

For those of us who had an awkward year (or ten), we love this tumblr project.

Hello loves! So ^that^ happened this weekend! My other half of VOF, the beautiful and glowing C, got engaged in Dallas! We know we promised a detailed weekend guide to Dallas (which is still on it’s way!), but we’ve been totally consumed with wedding details for the past few days. (I’ve been engaged for eight months now and I swear C has got more planning done in the past six days.) If you’re looking for more wedding-related posts, get ready because wedding planning is now in full swing at VOF headquarters.

To hold you over until we share our own engagement stories, go ahead and read the MOST AMAZING PROPOSAL OF ALL TIME. Grab the tissues, girls.

We were so excited to see this 101 things to do in 1001 days list from Design Darling. Stay tuned for our own list, and share yours with us in the comments! We’ll feature our favorite here on VOF.

We’re making a mental note to remember these genius parenting tactics in 10 years.

Follow this fascinating tumblr of Mike Learner’s entrancing photography.

Now here’s an invention we’re rooting for.

We lurve, loave, luff this Love List from Ashley Fine of One Fine Day.

Finally, if you haven’t seen Hot-Dog Legs circulating the internet yet, take a peek.

breakfast

Hi Loves! I treated myself to a delicious (and fabulously easy) breakfast this morning to kick off the festivities of the upcoming weekend. Since I was in a rush (like usual), I grabbed a frozen waffle and popped it in the toaster (you can use a multi-grain waffle if you’re feeling healthy) and just topped it with some goat cheese, fresh blackberries, and a drizzle of honey. You can substitute jam or preserves for the fresh berries when they aren’t in season. Waffles are also a great compliment to savory flavors (bacon, egg, and cheese, plz?).

If you have a bit more time, top with another waffle and throw it on a griddle for a breakfast grilled cheese.

But if you prefer eggs benedict for breakfast, try this recipe.

We’ve found our favorite bag for fall.

We love the posters and purpose behind the Joy of Ex Foundation. Especially, this particular poster.

Show this guide to your man, so he can “understand” you better. (Remind me to never fess up to reading Glamour because apparently that makes me mean, I’ll stick with InStyle.)

Hurry up and grab this free month of Hulu Plus from Gilt City to catch up on all your favorite shows. (Or just head to Netflix and give in to Orange is the New Black already.)

Wednesday Wish List: Dallas, TX

Wednesday Wish List: Dallas, TX
VOF will be taking on Dallas, TX in just a few short days! Today we bring you a wish list dedicated to all things Texas. Stayed tuned for a weekend guide to Dallas following our trip :).
1. If there’s anything you absolutely need to know about the VOF gals, it’s our shared passion for Friday Night Lights. What better way to get in the mood for a weekend in Texas than the soundtrack? #TexasForever
2. A sturdy cross body is essential for exploring any city. This mint version at ModCloth is from one of our favorites, The Cambridge Satchel Company.
3. We’ve already established our obsession with vintage marquee lights. This lonestar state-shaped version perfects it.
4. Visiting Texas doesn’t require an authentic Stetson, but we plan to pay a little tribute with this San Miguel hat.
5. That said, we definitely won’t shy away from quality cowboy boots. Hello, Lucchese!
6. We’re not sure if Dallas is considered to be in the Southwest, but we do know this stunning rug would look great in a Texas ranch home.
7. Go ahead and say no to this arrow bracelet. At just $11, we dare ya.
8. No visit to Texas would be complete without some delicious BBQ. We plan on making a pit stop at Pecan Lodge to see if it measures up to Franklin’s.
9. We’re gonna pretend it’s cool enough in Dallas to wear these jeans… #wishfulthinking

road trip

Hey y’all! I came across this photo this week and couldn’t be more in love. It perfectly captures friendship and the open road, two things we’re especially looking forward to in the next week. Click though the links below for more weekend inspiration. 🙂

Need a pick me up? Here’s just what you need.

We love this wall art. But we also think we’re crafty enough to replicate it.

A few white lies never hurt any one.

The more wedding planning I do, the more hand-lettering makes me swoon.

Is there an engagement ring in your near future? Drop some hints to your honey with this Snippet & Ink post.

Get creative and minimize clutter by using unexpected containers to catch junk small items around the house.

Wednesday Wish List

Wednesday Wish List

M & I are prepping for our road trip next week to see C & S (did I mention we’re excited?????), so this week’s wish list is dedicated to our favorite summer road trip essentials:

1. Although luggage tags aren’t exactly required for a road trip, these tags provide some rugged inspiration.

2. Obviously we’ll be needing a map to take on the open road. Since we’ll most likely be using Google Maps for this venture (and every other time I leave the house), we found a map that can get by on looks alone.

3. Sunscreen is a must for anyone who wants an equal tan on both sides of their face (read: everyone). This low-maintenance BB cream is perfect for our laid-back journey.

4. This iPhone case speaks for itself. (And don’t forget your charger!)

5. Sunglasses. Duh.

6. Layers are essential for air-conditioned car situations, especially those with a warm-bodied male in tow. This sweater is verging on blanket status, so we support it.

7. There is nothing I love more than a shift dress when on a road trip. This tie-dyed number has just the vibe I’m going for.

8. This leather backpack is enough incentive to pack lightly.

9. No road trip would be complete without some caffeine. We’ll be needing this store locator.
