The Friday Report


via design crush

Happy Friday! C & I are deep in the throws of wedding planning, and I’m quickly discovering my sanity level is closely correlated with the number of boxes I’ve checked on my checklist. Wedding season in Oregon is a really miniature time window, taking the stress of getting your top choice of vendors to a whole new level. My advice to future brides? If you’ve just got to have your wedding during busy season, plan your wedding for a Friday (if you plan to have your guests booze it up) or Sunday (if you’re looking for a more laid back, brunch wedding). Fridays and Sundays mean way less competition for vendors and venues.

Reception napkins have been the recent focus of debate, but these napkins are so great it makes the choice seem easy.

Brown butter brussels sprouts pasta with hazelnuts. Tell me that doesn’t sound delicious.

Would it be weird to start using these Oscars straws for everyday use? Think of the possibilities! Why yes, that is Ryan Gosling hanging out on my straw…

Speaking of Oscars, can I commission this little designer to create a reception dress for me?

OMG, go eat a cronut for me tomorrow, C.

What’s better than adult popcicles? Answer: Nothing.

The most adorable thing you’ll watch today, from kids at a school in Bangalore.
Bet your iPhone would fancy one of these.
 Jay-Z calls out rappers for grossly inflating their salaries in their lyrics (although they’re all making a pretty penny).
A love letter to fog.
Speaking of love…check out this NYTimes column.
Also, corn is our vegetable of the moment (we’re not even going to pretend this is our first time having a favorite vegetable. Beets, anyone?). Drooling over this.
Who says this can’t continue all month long.
Here’s a spritzer recipe you can share with the kids (just make sure to spike the right glass…).
It’s finally Friday, so laugh a little.
Lastly, this is exactly how I’d like to spend my sunday. We want to live in this blog.
