Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! I know some of us, myself included, have been searching for a new smaller Friday link-up and today I'm joining in one! I just discovered Amanda from Meet @ the Barre and she's got a great link-up going on with 50-60 bloggers joining in… instead of 300! I'm looking forward to hopefully finding some great new blogs through this link-up, so join in the fun! Just link up your 5 favorites from this week:
Meet at the Barre

ONE:  Tons of new clients and projects in the work via my design business. Every day I'm getting more and more excited about the opportunities blogging has brought me. Just this week I've created multiple blog designs, a custom business logo, a wedding invitation suite and a baby shower invitation. THIS is what makes my heart happy!!!

TWO:  Big things coming from Sallie & Perkins next week and I cannot wait to share it all. I hope you all still like them as much as I do ;) Make them feel welcome next Tuesday, promise?

THREE: Sore muscles, but not a sore hip. I hit up the gym a fair amount this week and my arms and legs are completely sore, but my hip felt pretty good this week. You're probably tired of hearing about my aching hip, but I was pretty excited to be able to work out this week without being in a ton of pain. I'm hoping with regular stretching and perhaps finally buying the foam-roller everyone has told me I need, I'll be back to regular training in no time!

FOUR:  Pinterest. Don't judge me! I hadn't been on much for quite some time, but this week I became a pinning machine again- finding all kinds of awesome stuff. If you aren't following me on there yet, please do!! The more the merrier :)

FIVE:  NBA finals started last night! Although my beloved Pacers are out, I'm rooting for anyone that plays the Heat… so let's go Spurs!!

What are your favorite things from this week?

  7. I am now following you on Pinterest, my friend. & I totally agree with you on Anyone-But-The-Heat. I'm not a big basketball fan (I'm actually a total girl when it comes to basketball) but I do know that I don't like the Heat. :p

  11. Can't wait to see what Sallie and Perkins are up to now. I love reading about your kickass-ness in the budget department!
    That quote is perfect! My dad and I are doing a tri tomorrow and he's nervous about the swim and just texted me this morning "I hope I'm not last out of the water." I sent him that quote for a little encouragement ;)

  16. I've been a pinterest slacker. I'd love to zone out with it for a few hours this weekend.

    I paid a big bill off (and our vacation) yesterday and thought of Sallie and Perkins! Virtual high five.

    Have a great weekend.

  21. Congrats on all the new business. You're pretty amazing so it's no surprise that people want to work with you :) I'm locking in a possible Cincy trip at the end of the month, so maybe we can get MEXICAN FOOD!!!! I'll send you an email early next week :) Happy Friday!!!

  22. YES I'm all for anyone beating The Heat haha. Just turn off the AC? :D And giiirrlll no worries about bringing up your hip! It's a huge deal to not feel that injury when working out! My IT band is really out of whack so a foam roller does wonders! So happy I found your blog through Amanda's link-up! Following :)

  23. Hey, congrats on so much success with design projects! :) Could I ask (without making you feel like you have to give me inside secrets at all!), how do you get the word out about your design business to get more clients? I recently started my own blog design business and am struggling with that.

  24. I'm so excited to hear about a new Friday Link-Up...they have gotten crazy big! I'm with you on Pinterest...I've been strangely absent from there too. I'm thinking of marathoning this weekend.

  25. Amen about beat the Heat! Obviously I wanted the Pacers to make the Finals, but on the upside, I actually get to see my boyfriend's face again! He still exists!! GO SPURS!

  26. yay for your design business! and i've just recently starting pinning again after a hiatus – trying to get decorating ideas for the new place, so of course pinterest is the best place for that :)

  27. It's so weird, I will be on Pinterest and pin ALL OF THE THINGS and then I don't touch it for a very long time...or only pin an image from a blog that I want to remember and then I will have another streak with it.

    Congrats on all your designing jobs! That is so fun to be able to do something you love like that!

    Have a great weekend!
