Happy Weekend!

Test your vocabulary! I got 26,800, right smack in the middle range for my age, I’ll take that!

Michael Pollan article about germs and our guts. Take your probiotics, kids…

This made me laugh way too hard!

I can totally understand how this could happen.

One of my favorite bands has a new single out and a new album coming (finally!) on March 18!

Watch this and try not to smile!

Supersized Friday Finds!

Since I missed the last couple of weeks, I’ve got a big Friday Finds this week! Also, I finally got my mandarin fish tattoo, so I will have some pics of that very soon, I love it!

Also, I’m really behind in, well, life right now, so I hope you had a great Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

Without further ado, let’s go!

This is pretty spectacular, an amazing a-cappella medley of Disney songs by 17 year old Heather Traska.

Friday Finds – 12/2/11

Yay for Friday! I’m totally ready for the weekend! I’m going to spend some time with my nieces painting pottery and baking cookies, and finish getting Christmas decorations up.

Oh and sleeping in, till like, 8, hopefully.

On to the finds of the week!

Super cool time lapse movie driving across the U.S.:


This is a great video by Marie Forleo on getting over the fear of being judged by others. I know I definitely have issues with this from time to time.

So many of these cookie recipes at How Sweet It Is sound awesome!

Katrina at Pugly Pixel has the best Photoshop tutorials!

Friday Finds – 11/25/11

First off: Happy day after Thanksgiving!  Otherwise known as “Black Friday”! Are you going shopping today? I am not. I’ve ventured out into the madness, several times, even getting up at 4 am twice! So, I’m good. I’m far more interested in Small Business Saturday.  Have you heard of this? Awesome idea, supporting small, local businesses instead of the big corporations. My goal is to buy mostly one-of-a-kind gifts this year and experiences. More meaningful than more stuff from the big box stores.

Now, on to the Finds for the week!

Interesting article about my generation: Generation Catalano

Having traveled to third world countries and experienced how giving and gracious people who have so little can be, this article by Suzy at Chiot’s Run is a great reminder, especially in this month of Thanksgiving.

I don’t usually make cookies for Christmas, I make simple candy, so this candy bark is on my list to try:

 IMG 4337 Friday FindsRandom summer picture of Gilly in the garden. I didn’t even get a chance to pic up the camera this week. Boo.

Just a few late Friday Finds:

Something to think about: Occupy Entrepreneurship by Corbet Barr.

The furniture that people are creating for this dollhouse challenge is insane! Observe:

From The Brick House. I want this credenza for my house. But, you know, full size.

Joy the Baker is awesome and real. Not to mention her great recipes. I only wish I’d discovered her blog earlier.

Puppy chow is probably my favorite snack to make at Christmas time, but with Nutella? I’m in soooo much trouble.
