link love - 8.19.11

Finally another Link Love post! This week has been a bit calmer but this weekend is going to be a little nuts. I'm flying home to DC for 36 hours for my sister's baby shower while Emma stays home with Jared and his parents. Our freezer is filled to the gills with pumped milk and I'm crossing my fingers and toes that it's enough. It'll be a whirlwind weekend, but I'm so excited to see my family and help throw such a joyous event for my sister. (And okay, I'm also a little excited to be able to take a nice long shower, sleep in, and give my back and arms a much needed break!) :-) Anyway, here's what caught my eye this week...

  • Girl's Upcycled Shirt Dress on Grits and Giggles - I have a whole bag of Jared's old dress shirts just waiting to be repurposed into cute little clothes for Emma, and this is one of the sweetest versions of the upcycled shirt dress I've seen in a while. I especially love the little flower detail.
  • Healthier Zucchini Bread on Prudent Baby - Zucchini bread was one of the few really good food options in my dorm at college (Spartans! Whoop whoop!) but I haven't had it since. This post reminded me how much I love it and with zucchini in season, I think I'll just have to make some!

  • Laziest DIY Cushion Slipcover  on Prudent Baby - Our outdoor cushions are in pretty rough shape and I've been meaning to cover them for a long time now (okay, years actually.) This tutorial was just what I needed. Hopefully I can snag some outdoor fabric on clearance this winter and get our cushions all spiffed up in time for next spring.
Have a great weekend!! :-)
