weekend reading

Happy Saturday, pals! The blackberries are ripening, the sun is shining, and I am still in my pjs...ah, the weekend. I hope your weekend is off to a similarly nice start and that it will be full of fun and rest. Here are this week's links:

Since January, I have been saying that I want to re-read the Harry Potter series. I haven't gotten around to it quite yet, but it seems it is perfect timing since just yesterday it was announced that there is going to be a HP read-along on Pottermore starting in June!

I have a few library books and my next book club pick to read before the HP read-along starts, so I better get busy with the reading! I am currently reading these three books from the library and need to start this one for my book club. 

In craft-related book news, I purchased this one yesterday. It's coming tomorrow and I can't wait to spend Sunday evening with my sketchbook, drawing florals galore! 

Noodlehead released a new bag pattern this week and it's so cute! I love the smaller sized bag. The trickiest part will be deciding what fabrics to use.  

Mojito Water. This is like spa water on summertime. It sounds so refreshing and delicious and I'm thinking a giant pitcher of it with plenty of ice will keep me hydrated all summer long. 

As you all know, I am now obsessed with The Great British Baking Show, so of course this article about becoming a baker was right up my alley. 

My Boyfriend Weighs Less Than I Do. I loved this article. I'm thinking it would provoke good discussion for my body image group. 

Well friends, I'm off to do some reading and some shopping for a baby shower gift. Have a splendid weekend!
