Weekend Links + Options

Weekend Links + Options // Frock Files

What a whirlwind of a week! Isn’t that always the way it is before a big trip, though? Since I only see my friends and family back home once each year, I make a special effort to get a little more groomed before going home. My resolution to schedule self care is in effect – at my haircut on Wednesday, I took Sarah’s advice and scheduled my next haircut exactly eight weeks down the road.

Now we just have some last minute errands to run, a family birthday party to throw, and a bit of packing to do — and we’re off! To ring in a festive weekend, I’ve rounded up five fascinating links just for you.

Weekend Links

The moment you realize your mom went through exactly the same things you’re going through right now.

Adorable kids learning about charity in such a fun way! (Think: lemonade stand for the wintertime.)

European flash mobs are classier.

More options = more happiness?

Bourbon! Chocolate! Pecans!

P.S. See you back here on Monday for one last post before we jet! What are you up to this weekend?

  1. Ooh, thanks for that TED radio hour link! I’ve never listened to that podcast, but it sounds like exactly the thing I’d love.

    I hope you have a lovely trip–& don’t let the airport craziness ruin it. You’re going to have a magnificent time.


    • You WILL love it! It’s right up your alley. And thanks for the bon voyage wishes. Fingers crossed that everyone is in good holiday cheer.

  2. Love that you scheduled your next hair appointment already. It works well for me for teeth cleanings as I hate the dentist and otherwise would “pretend” to put that appointment off. Have a wonderful weekend and fantastic trip home.

  3. Those “street” musicians are amazing! I love miniature desserts and those pies look fantastic. We’ve have a crazy/busy week, so I’m looking forward to a weekend to catch up on things and relax a bit. Wishing you safe travels to Hawaii!
