friday favorites | may 17, 2013

Happy Friday, everyone!

I've got a crazy weekend on slate, starting with a 5K tomorrow morning and then a birthday party for Mom and a graduation + graduation party to attend for my cousin Michelle. I don't think I'm going to stop moving the entire time, but it should be lots of fun!

If you're in a somewhat calmer mode than I at the moment and find yourself with some crafty time, then you might want to check out some of the fun links I've gathered up this week. As for me, I'm going to dash off now and make a pair of chocolate tarts and pack the X-Box for travel- I think there will be Star Wars dance fun at some point during all the festivities!
