Well, happy Friday! You made it once again! Fridays are kind of my favorite day of the week because it officially starts my weekend. I don't know if I have mentioned this before, but I only work four days a week, so I'm pretty excited about not working today!
My plans are watch Harry Potter movies 3-5 and then start in on the Colin Firth featured Pride and Prejudice miniseries. All of this while making things for the Etsy shop, of course. Because.....IT IS ONLY A WEEK UNTIL OPENING! I will know by Monday if this is still attainable and will let you all know. :) I'm so excited!
Anyway, onto my Friday Favorites!
I discovered Noah this past week actually through Noisetrade (where you can get this song for free!) and then looked him up on youtube. Uh, how did I miss this guy? Check out his cover of "Sexy and I Know It" and you will see why I am now obsessed. It is about a million and a half times better than the original.
My other favorite music-related thing this week (it was a tie) was this cover of "Somebody That I Used To Know" by Pentatonix. I am a huge fan of a cappella arrangements and these guys are the masters of it. They won the Sing Off last summer (I totally rooted for them!) and I am just continually amazed at their talent! This cover is just amazing beyond words.
2. Favorite DIY/Handmade-Related Thing: These Pouch Sewing Tutorials
How About Orange put together a small round-up of tutorials for pouches, and all of them look amazing! Definitely going to have to try these sometime soon!

3. Favorite Food-Related Thing: Olive Garden Salad Dressing Recipe
My husband and I love the Olive Garden Italian Dressing that comes on that salad in the big bowl of deliciousness, so I was ecstatic to find this floating around on Pinterest! I have no idea when I will actually try it, but it is now on my list!

4. Favorite Interior-Related Thing:de Gournay Chinoiserie Wallpaper
Another Pinterest find! But just look at how completely gorgeous these wallpapers are! I just can't get over it. Drool.

5. Favorite Event-Related Thing: This Vintage Bridal Shower
So this isn't a real bridal shower (thank goodness or I might shoot myself!), but the inspiration is so lovely! The pearls, vintage books, tea pots, gold accents, and adorable hats are enough to make me faint. So do yourself a favor and click on the link to look at all of the pictures. Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot:
6. Favorite Entertainment-Related Thing: The Decoy Bride
I stumbled across this adorable movie on Netflix this past week and just loved it! Kelly Macdonald (who also voices Merida in Brave) is just lovely and the whole story is so fun. There are a ton of awesome accents (which automatically make movies better), pretty scenery, and toilet humor (not to be confused with potty humor). Just watch it.

7. Favorite Miscellaneous: Finest Paperware
Ever wish Fine China was disposable? Well, Rebecca Wilson has granted your wish! These (expensive) paper cups are made to look like Wedgewood china. While I don't think I would ever spend the money, it is such a fun idea!
