{happy friday} pic & pin

friday pic & pin 3 Ahh...the weekend. I'm feeling so much better now that we're officially back online and able to take care of business (like booking our first getaway to Penang next month!). Thank you for the sweet and encouraging comments on yesterday's post - just had one of those days and had to vent.

Back on the brighter side of life, one thing that I quickly fell in love with here is the fresh watermelon juice available everywhere. It's a staple beverage and it's literally all I've ordered at restaurants and cafes since we moved. Well, there have been a few mojitos in between which is why this Watermelon Mojito Poptail made me crazy excited. In fact, with all of these grown up Popsicle recipes calling my name I may never drink my drinks again! Now I really have a reason to shop for a juicer...

Cheers to a great weekend!

This week's three rad links...

• Joe used to live upstairs from this new Downtown LA restaurant (and I four blocks away). Definitely on the list of places to check out next time I'm in town via Oh Joy!

• Teaser issue of the new lifestyle magazine, Verily via their site designer Breanna Rose. Can't wait to read it this weekend, you know, since I have the internet and all :)

These guys never let me down with design/photography giggles and awe. The latest is their collection of perfectly timed photos - I love the basket ball one ha!
