Weekend Links, 6.8.13

So I haven’t read a whole lot of blog posts lately. I mean, I’m here to share what I have. But while I normally have a bajillion links for you, today I just have seven. Seven good ones, though – so enjoy!

And then there’s this. Sing Together by Mr. Rogers, remixed by PBS Digital Studio. You’re welcome.

Weekend Links, 12.8.12

Our tree is up although not completely decorated, and we’ve completed about half of each day’s Truth in the Tinsel advent activity for about half of the days of advent so far. To make up for the ways I’m lacking in holiday accomplishments, though, we’re listening to lots and lots of Christmas music.

So there’s that. How’s YOUR holiday season going so far?

I’m getting ready for a blog break during the last few weeks of the year, so this will likely be my last Weekend Links post of 2012. Don’t worry. Unless the Mayans are right, I’ll be back with lots o’links in the new year! (And, really, if the Mayans are right, I suppose we have much bigger things to consider than blog posts.)

Here are a few of my most favorite reads from the past few weeks. I’m sure I’ve missed plenty of good ones, though, so please share your recommendations in the comments!

And then there’s this video I saw on Facebook this week. As one of my friends said, if this doesn’t make you smile, you are broken. Snoopy music. Old people. Dancing. Old people dancing. I mean, c’mon! This is adorable and happy and lovely.

Happy weekend! I scored a last-minute babysitter for a date night, so I’m looking forward to that. What about you? What’s on your weekend agenda?

Weekend Links, 11.3.12

Oh, how I’ve missed you, Weekend Links! Normally, going six weeks between link posts would mean an outrageous list of bookmarks to sort through. Fortunately (I suppose), the past six weeks have been madness and I’ve barely made a dent in my virtual stack of blogs to read. These are the ones that caught my eye anyway.

Okay fine! Upon further review, it seems I do have a bajillion links for you. Six weeks, okay?! Here, maybe this will make it up to you. Check out Emergency Compliment. Annnnd you’re welcome.

And because I love you so much, I’ve got the four best videos I’ve seen in the past two months. Enjoy! (Seriously. Click. Watch. You’ll love them, I just know it.)

Weekend Links, 9.22.12

Lessons I’ve learned in the past couple days:

  1. If the peel on a banana slights breaks open and you leave it sitting on your counter anyway, fruit flies will invade.
  2. If your husband is at work and the plunger doesn’t work, dish soap and hot water will unclog a toilet.
  3. If you insist on picking a monster zit on your forehead, you will end up with a giant scab. (Lovely.)
  4. If you procrastinate too long, you will create massive amounts of unnecessary stress.

I’d tell you more about that last one, but I’m out of time. Seriously out of time. I have put off a major, big-deal, important-to-me-and-others project WAY too long and am currently at Def Con 5, Red Alert, heart-attack-and-ulcer-inducing panic stage.

So, while I flap around my house in a state of pure adrenaline and nonsense (and, I’ll admit it, a bit of self-loathing, because really? I KNOW BETTER.), you should check out these great posts from this month.

{I know. I KNOW. I said I would share posts more often to avoid giving you a crazy long list all at once. I did. I said that and then, what did I do? Pretty much the opposite. I’m sorry. I’ll try harder. But I promise – I promise! – all of these posts are worth a read.}

Two more things. I happened upon this and feel it’s my duty, as a devoted Gilmore Girls fan, to share it with you: The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge. And, in honor of last week’s long-awaited and glorious return of Parks & Recreation, enjoy this video.
