We heard it was National Guacamole Day on Friday, and we’re pumped! We wanted to make sure you had the inside scoop {pun much intended} for Friday so you too can be prepped and ready to go with delicious guac. Here are some guac recipes that caught our eye!

+ Fruity guac – pineapple & mango
+ Guacamole bruschetta toast
+ Greek yogurt guac
+ Pomegranate guac with fried plantains

Hello, loves! It’s been awhile since our last Happy Weekend post because of vacations and such – but it’s great to be back! We love sharing the fun stuff we find online throughout the week.:) I know we just said we wanted to hold onto summer for as long as possible, but the fall baked goods popping up everywhere are calling our names! How amazing and unique is that pie?!

Anyway…how are y’ll spending your Labor Day weekend? We’re taking it easy and are very excited about it!

It’s called The Rescued Film Project, and it started when this young photographer ended up with thousands of undeveloped film from WWI and realized how special it is to come across undeveloped film that no one else has ever seen! He now seeks out undeveloped film from all over the country, develops it and posts it online on his Facebook and website. It’s just so interesting!

We’re supposed to get major snow on Monday, but we’re in denial. Instead, take a look at these gorgeous green hills and think spring! Also make sure to check out our Friday links…

cct // I swear the sunsets have been extra great these days (they’re very cotton candy-ish), they remind me of this photography series

rkv // Christa recently bought me a new canvas tote by the artist KT Smail, and now we’re pretty much obsessed with her. So imagine my excitement when I saw some new desktop backgrounds that she made featured on DesignLoveFest!

cct // The Oscars are on Sunday, and these days the outfits are almost as important as the movies! Check out Marie Claire’s list of best Oscar dresses of all time.

rkv // Speaking of the Oscars…This weekend we’re hosting a small get together for the big event, so I may need to snag an idea or two from Cupcakes and Cashmere for party prepping

cct // This DIY has been circulating the web, and you can see why- it’s great! New project for this weekend perhaps?

rkv // I’ve been a bit behind on that New Years rezzie I made to myself about getting back into a gym routine, but I’ve finally got a little momentum going again so I appreciated these quick and effective moves by the Huffington Post

cct // Guys, I learned how to screenprint! This was my first piece, and I can’t wait for more projects 🙂 If anyone has any tips or tricks, I would love to hear them!

rkv // Love this simple idea for displaying old family recipes

Enjoy your weekend, all!
