Happy Friday, lovely friends! What’s on your agenda this holiday weekend? My parents are coming to visit me while boyfriend’s away watching football in Boston. Here are some ideas from around the web I’m hoping will inspired by solo-gal weekend. See you back here on Monday!
First up, big stacks of these pumpkin pancakes, from Just a Taste, for the family Sunday morning?
Gah! A sweater or three in my closet might benefit from this DIY sequin heart elbow patch by swellmayde…
Or maybe I’ll upgrade one with Martha Stewart’s DIY marabou sweater embellishment—so chic and snuggly!
Tagliatelle with king crab, tangerines, chiles and lemon via Lemon Fire Brigade...for one!
Veggie-packed (but totally homey and delicious looking) dinners ideas—broccoli rabe salad with fresh ricotta and creamy broccoli soup—from Whole Living.
Catch a showing of Zero Dark Thirty, starring Jessica Chastain, at BAM.
Stencil gift bags for Valentine's Day to hide little treats for my loved ones.
Bake a pie!
Soak in the tub—spike the water with shea-butter bubble bath with a faint clementine scent!
Book flights to Italy (we’re hoping to go late spring, more to come on that later)!
