17 Fun Weekend Picks

gore-place-plants-sheep.jpgHappy Friday everyone! I hope your week has been excellent. Things were a little trying on this end the last few days, given that our house got hit with the dreaded stomach bug (thankfully I was spared, though I still had to take care of the afflicted). However, everyone is back to work and school though, and I have already gone for a run, 3-touched my e-mail, and am enjoying a delicious latte while I publish this post. Yay! Meanwhile, the weekend forecast is looking lovely -- perfect for the range of outdoor events listed below, and there are some great indoor picks as well. Have a fantastic weekend my friends!
