Happy {Home} Weekend

It's a dreary Florida morning today, calling for a big steaming cup of coffee, some Van Morrison on Pandora, and red lipstick to brighten the day, because nothing will get in the way of the excitement I'm feeling.
Know why? Because I'm going home.
That's right—I'm throwing the pooch in the back seat and setting sail through the South to head back to good 'ole Mississippi for a long weekend away. Summer on the seaside is thrilling, filled with a certain excitement that keeps you going long past the sunset. Which is the precise reason I am longing for a little R&R, from work and play, on the front porch of my childhood home, drinking a glass of wine at dusk with the magnolia tree shielding us slightly from the sun and, if I know my mom, some James Taylor on the sound system.
Sounds like a dream.
I hope you're looking forward to your weekend plans as much as I am, but a few Friday Finds to help you on  your way:
  • For all you jewelry fanatics—I literally gasped when I found these earrings. It's like stealing!
  • Breakfast is my favorite meal, and this is one thing I'm looking forward to trying to talk Mom into making this weekend for old times sake.
  • A little shopping is on the agenda for the weekend, as I'll be looking for these staples I wrote about previously, but I'll also be scouring antique shops for a vintage cake stand after seeing how cute they are used in the home here and here.
  • Who needs a reason for new luggage? Because I'm going absolutely bananas over this brand.
  • Alert alert! Today makes the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Bye bye bank account, and be still, my heart, over this fabulous find.
Happy Friday lovelies!
