Have a Lovely (Long) Weekend

What are your plans for the weekend? After begging for years, the boys have finally worn us down and we are going to Chuck E. Cheese’s. Please wish us luck! :) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

Homeland’s sixth season premieres this Sunday!

Three-ingredient macaroni and cheese.

The one question I ask new entrepreneurs.”

This cartoon made me laugh.

A sweet mindfulness game for kids.

Michelle Obama’s got late night show hosting skills.

What life was like in 2007, haha.

Beyoncé and Solange on the value of being control freaks.

It’s easy to feel blah in the winter — especially when buried in a wool sweater or a giant coat. But one look we’re really into right now that is truly easy: a silk blouse paired with jeans.

Thoughts? Would you wear this? What brand of shirts do you love?

P.S. Lovely earrings and five outfits that always work.
