Happy Saturday, friends!  We are spending the weekend in Houston with little plans other than swimming in the pool with the boys (it’s that time of year) and doing some summer cleaning / organizing around the house.  I am tackling the pantry and the boys toy closet this weekend and hope to have time tips and tricks for you coming soon!  Anyone else love a good purge / cleaning day?!  As always, I am sharing my favorite links from around the web this week.

1. Dear Chicago: Houston’s bean is better. And so is Houston: Houston Got a Bean and Chicago Is Feeling A Little Insecure: Between the twitter war and newspaper articles going back and forth between city rivals Houston and Chicago have a new beef!

2. Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale: End tomorrow, Saturday June 3rd.  Take advantage before it’s too late to snag summer favorites at a steel!

3. The City’s Most Stylish Creatives Host The Ultimate Garden Party: I loved partnering with some of my favorite Houston creatives for this stunning garden party that was recently featured in PaperCity Magazine.

4. A Look At The Adderall Epidemic: This article on Goop is an eye-opening view on the alarming rise of Adderall prescriptions in the US in relation to the rest of the world.

5. A Detailed Destination, Planning Reimagined: My friend, Merritt of The Style Scribe, just launched her new travel site and the beautiful and detailed itineraries have me craving a trip abroad!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! xo
