Happy Weekend! Is anyone else ready for a few days of doing not much of anything? My big plans include looking for a new bike, tending to my little garden, and–if I can work up the energy–moving into my new office. What are you up to this weekend?

I especially loved all the fun & festive St. Patricks day ideas this week! Here were my favorites:
