Happy Friday! This weeks’ favorite are filled with a personal update (on why I’ve been so busy), Lego Tape, Lindsey Stirling and Beauty and the Beast, this week’s Wish List, and of course my favorite Instagram photo of the week.

If you’re new to My Urban Family, welcome! Each Friday I round up my favorites from the past week – videos, photos, stories, funny items, and products. Let’s dive in!

Favorite Instagram Photo

A post shared by My Urban Family (@myurbanfamily) on

I mentioned recently that I’ve been traveling a lot the past few weeks – Pittsburgh was one of those places I went to and I took this photo while I was there. I plan on diving into my travels more in the future, but here is a sneak peek!

Lego Tape!

Who doesn’t need this in their life? I know I need it. Ok… maybe not. But how fun is this? I kind of want to buy a ton of it and make an image with it on a wall or tabletop.

Lindsey Stirling & Beauty and the Beast

Is anyone else really excited for Beauty and the Beast to come out today? If you’ve seen it, let me know what you think! I’m not sure when I’ll be heading to the theaters but hopefully soon. And aside from Beauty and the Beast, I always love Lindsey Stirling so of course I’ve watched this video a few times.

This Week’s Wish List

Personal Update

You know how when you take a day or two off of work and then come back you always have to kind of scramble to catch up? Well I plan on sharing my adventures more in a future post, but here is why work has taken over recently: in the past few weeks I’ve traveled to 2 other major US cities as well as another country! Fake bonus points to you if you can guess where in the comments below.

Aside from traveling and playing catch-up with work, I’ve been attempting to start spring cleaning my home. We moved in a little less than a year ago and while we tried to organize while we unpacked, it really took living here to realize what we really use each day, what needs to be donated, and what needs to get moved around. Anyone else starting their spring cleaning already?

Friday Favorites Week 76


Friday Favorites Week 78


  1. Happy Friday! Link up is still on my blog, no where else at the moment. Myself, Charlotte, and a whole bunch of others were booted from Krysten’s group so you won’t see us there anymore. You’re still welcome to link up though.
    I hope you’re doing well Alex 🙂 Have a great weekend.

  2. I love the idea of that Lego tape! You could definitely make something really arty and cool with it! Happy Friday! New Balance makes Beauty & the Beast Sneakers, for adults. Just saying…

    • OMG – So I read this comment when you first posted it, forgot, and then got excited all over again haha. I guess that means I need some of those sneakers…

  3. That lego tape is so fun! I’m excited to see Beauty and the Beast too! Have a great weekend!

  4. Wow another country?! Exciting! Freelance work trips? Can’t wait to hear! I’m so excited for Beauty and the Beast. I will be working on packing and organizing for our move (moving next Friday) and I’m sure I’ll be sorting through to donate things I know I haven’t used much.

    • One was a semi-work trip… but I have more details coming soon! I’m so behind on the blog, but this post is mostly written so it should be *crosses fingers* done early next week 🙂

  5. I am visiting (or driving through) Pittsburgh for the first time ever this summer with my parents. I am eating at this great restaurant that I cannot think of the name…..but it is famous for sammiches and I love me a sammich.

    • I think I know the place you’re talking about! I don’t remember the name either, but it was a deli and it had a line around the block (no joke) all afternoon when we were in that area!

  6. That video is AMAZING!! I also have never heard of Lego Tape, but that will make my BIL very happy!! Thanks for sharing!!

  7. Pittsburgh is where I call home! I grew up right outside of the city. (I’m actually booking a flight today to go home and visit soon!)
    Also – I’m looking forward to seeing Beauty and the Beast as well! Have a great weekend.

    I always love your pictures!! Gorgeous!!

  9. So excited for Beauty and the Beast. Happy weekend!

  10. Your pictures are amazing. Love the video.

  11. Happy Friday!! Can’t wait to see Beauty and the Beast!!!

  12. I need to get some of that Lego tape!!! It looks like so much fun 😀 and I LOVE Lindsay Sterling too, she is so amazingly cute, unique and talented.

    I recently moved, and the unpacking/throwing out stuff part is no fun. Good luck! I have yet to start spring cleaning… haha

    • I always have a hard time getting rid of things – what if I end up needing that again? But then my husband wants to get rid of everything so I guess he evens me out haha

  13. That Lindsay Stirling video is awesome!!!

  14. Ah the spring cleaning season. No matter how much I try to keep things tidy and clean, there’s always a mess when it comes down to that time. Good luck on your work and spring cleaning!

  15. What a lovely photo! It makes me want to travel to Pittsburgh immediately, I could enjoy the view alllll day. I’m taking a guess (based on nothing else but guess) that one of the cities you’ve traveled is NY? Anyways good luck with your new plans!

    • Thanks – and that is a good guess, but not this time! I do want to head back to NY soon though!

  16. The video of Lego Tape is awsome. I’m looking forward to seeing Beauty and The Beast too. I love your photo. It’s fun to travel to another place especially a beautiful city like Pittsburgh.
