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, 5.18.13

Blergh. I haven’t done a Weekend Links post for three weeks, and that means I have a whole lotta stuff to share with you today! I’ll try to organize it so it doesn’t seem so overwhelming. After all, I would hate for your weekend reading to stress you out!

Deep Thoughts & Important Stuff

Help for When Google Reader Goes Away Forever

Huh. It looks like I’ve been all serious, all the time for the past few weeks. You know me – the odds of that are pretty slim. And what’s coming next will prove that I have spent plenty of time laughing my face off. Because . . . I have a billion HIGH-LARIOUS videos for you to watch.

Fine. Not a billion. But five. In one post. It seems like a lot, but please trust me. You don’t want to miss a single one of these. I’ve watched each of them at least twice, if not several times. Hence the face laughed off.

The best thing about these videos? After I’d already watched them, friends kept making sure I’d seen them. I got tweets, Facebook messages and Skype notices about at least three of these! My friends know me so well . . .


Pumpcast News: Singing Couple at the Gas Station – Why does my gas station not have Pumpcast News?!


Arrested Development Season 4 Trailer – I’m counting down the days.


New Girl Auto-Tuned – This sealed the deal. New Girl is officially my favorite show right now.


Dove Real Beauty Sketches – Men – I’m sure you’ve seen the Dove video, reminding women that they’re more beautiful than they think. Men need a different sort of reminder…


Lip Sync-Off with Jimmy Fallon and John Krasinski – I saved the best for last. There’s no reason on earth why a grown man lip synching to Katy Perry should be attractive. And yet…{just watch it.}

Weekend Links, 4.6.13

My friend Hilary is a professional photographer, as well as a Mary Kay consultant, and she’s doing both my makeup and my head shot this afternoon. Then, with my face all painted, I’m taking my husband out on a date. {Fine, technically I suppose HE is taking ME on a date. But I’m the one who scheduled the babysitter, so there’s that to consider.}

Anyway, those are my big plans for this weekend. What are YOU up to?

And in case you missed it, here are a couple of my favorite posts from this blog:

Also, in case you’re worried about what you’ll do when Google Reader shuts down, I’ve started using Feedly. And so far, it’s great. I was able to import my feeds (and folders) from Reader, which took just a few minutes. And I can use it – for free, which is the best price of all – on my desktop AND my phone. It doesn’t LOOK as nice as Reader, but for functionality and convenience (and price), it’s a close second. If you want to look into other options, these articles have several ideas:

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.


If you can’t see the video, click here for The Piano Guys surprising some old people with a Charlie Brown Medley.

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?
