Friday Favorites

First, my Spring 30 for 30 - Outfit 18:

Now, on to bigger and better things - my Friday Favorites:

Check out Retronaut's fascinating photos documenting the evolution of cheerleaders:

Speaking of history, love 'em or hate 'em, the stiletto is a staple in most women's wardrobes (I obviously choose to love 'em). Check out this interesting Huffington Post article about the history of the shoe and the exhibit "Roger Vivier: Process To Perfection" beginning May 9 at Toronto's Bata Shoe Museum.

If only I had somewhere to wear a dress like this:

Also, if only I could get away with wearing this blazer with shorts trend at work:

How fun is this dress for the summer?

My life's motto:

How cool are these toasta bags? Making grilled cheese sandwiches even easier!
While we are discussing food, how amazing do these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes from Recipe Girl look? (Thanks for sending this recipe my way Laura J.!)

I also can't wait to test out this twist on these $!utty Brownies, substituting the Oreos with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Yum. I am drooling typing this.

Check out this nifty idea for removing crayon... using mayonnaise

I love this peaceful design idea from 6th Street Design School for DIY Cloud Art.

As Jesse and I approach our first anniversary, I am happy to take all the advice I can for a long and happy marriage. This article - 15 ways to stay married for 15 years - includes some great advice for all couples. Thanks again Laura J!

And finally, such a great quote:

Hope you all have a very happy weekend! XO
