Weekend Roundup

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you're enjoying a great week! I'm super excited about this weekend; we have some fun social events on tap, my Girls on the Run team has its season-ending 5K, and the girls and I will be working on some of these easy DIY food gift projects! We'll also likely pop in to at least one of the events on this epic 42-event Weekend Roundup. Enjoy, and I'd love it if you could share the roundup with your friends!
