spring flowers, flowers, friday link love, interesting links, links of the week

// I’ve been meaning to pick up some flowers for a couple weeks now. On Wednesday, I finally swung by Trader Joe’s and picked up a bouquet of white tulips, along with two small bunches of daffodils. I may have gone a little overboard because I don’t have vases large enough to hold all the blooms that I bought. Note to self: buy a couple new vases.

// I’m ashamed to admit that I have not yet read any of Toni Morrison’s books. I did enjoy reading her profile in the New York Times though, and I’ve made it a goal of mine to read at least one of her books this year.

// Oh you fickle weather. I know I was a little premature with my bare legs on Tuesday because I was freezing. I can’t bear to put on another pair of tights though, so I really need the weather to get it together. Thankfully it’s supposed to be 60 degrees and sunny on Sunday. Crossing my fingers that that’s actually true!

// Oyster released a list of 100 best books of the decade so far and I’ve added several of them to my TBR list.

// How cute is this J. Crew factory tee? I’m pretty tempted to pick it up for spring/summer.

// Yesterday I grabbed lunch with a friend at The Grey Dog. It can get pretty crowded, but it’s a good, affordable lunch spot. I ordered the chicken tenders/fries and it really hit the spot.

// New trailers for Orange is the New Black and True Detective! I can’t wait for both of these shows to return.

    Oh gosh, I just watched True Detective this week and I’m so obsessed! (I don’t have HBO so I’m living lightyears behind everybody else, haha.) I don’t know how the second season can possibly live up to the first! And I haven’t read any of Toni Morrison’s books either, you’re not alone. I do have Beloved, but I just haven’t had a chance to read it yet (story of my life). Have a great weekend, enjoy the (hopefully) 60 degrees!!

      I am wondering if the second season will maintain the quality of the first season, since it’s a different cast and a different story. I’m looking forward to it.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one :) I haven’t decided which one I’m going to start with yet, but it will happen this year!

    Yaay for white tulips and no tights!! Seriously, if we have one more chilly day here I’ll lose my mind- I’m closing the book on coats and sweaters regardless if it stays warm or not haha. That J Crew tee is SO cute, I’d love to see it with a full skirt. Ahh don’t tempt me. And I’m semi scared to open that top 100 book list. I have SO many books waiting for me on my night stand already, and I just keep adding more and more. I’m weak when it comes to that haha.

      Today was another no tights today- hooray indeed! Now if only the weather would stay this way…

      I think that tee would look so cute with a full skirt too! I’m still so tempted :)
