link love - 6.3.11

We're supposed to have FABULOUS weather this weekend here in Portland, and I couldn't be more excited. Warmth and blue skies are just what I've been needing. Oh, and I'm getting a massage, a pedicure, and we're going to see one of our favorite local bands - Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside. It all adds up to the perfect distraction from how dang uncomfortable I am these days! Here's what I loved from the blogosphere this week:

  • Bacon Lover's Mac and Cheese on Annie's Eats - The title of this recipe pretty much says all you need to know, but in case you need more convincing, here's how insanely good it looks...

  • The "Taking Notes" Skirt Tutorial on Sewing in No Mans Land - How freaking cute is this skirt???  Kelly included tutorials for making a version for mom, too, and I can't decide which one I like better. (Before you start to doubt me, I would never ever force our poor daughter to wear matching outfits with me - maybe matching aprons for my own amusement, but nothing in public.)

  • Tips for Photographing Your Home on Making it Lovely - This is something I continue to struggle with, mostly because the lighting is so hard to get right. I'm finally ready to take the big nursery reveal photos, so the timing of Nicole's tips couldn't be better. Hopefully they turn out well!

Have a great weekend, everyone!!! :-)
