Happy Friday, friends! How was your week? The semester is winding down, so I’ve been feeling like the Energizer Bunny with a caffeine I.V. this week. I’m looking forward to a little breathing room this weekend. Do you have any splendid plans? My sister and I are celebrating Mother’s Day a week early and taking our mom to the special pre-screening of Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo’s new Great Bear Wilderness exhibit. After all, she is our Ms. Bear, so we thought it only fitting.
While we’re bear viewing, check out my Top 5 Favorite Blogs this week (OH, and don’t forget to check out my guest-post on Café Fashionista tomorrow! I’m so honored to be featured on Erika’s lovely blog!)…
