Weekend Links

Little Madeline home from the groomer's, all fresh and clean! Madeline, home from the groomer this morning! I have a post all about the love between her and Henry I need to finish and post sometime. She's such a special little pup and I'm so grateful for her.

It's Saturday and I thought I'd take a few minutes while Henry is finishing up his nap to share some of my favorite links from around the web this week. Some of you have asked me via the comments how I collect and organize all of the links I share, and it's really simple. As I find them, all I do is bookmark them into a folder called "Weekly Links" and then simply cut and paste them at the end of the week. This way I am able to just quickly file something awesome away and have them all in the same place. I feel kind of silly typing that out because it's so straight-forward and easy but now you know! It's nothing fancy.

Today's been a good one. I had a gnarly WOD at CrossFit this morning, then Hank, Henry and I ran a few errands around town. I can't say enough how much I am loving CF. I'll write another post on it in about a month when I've been doing it for a bit longer but a couple weeks in and I'm hooked. It takes me back to my sports-playing days in HS, and later working with trainers...just a lot harder. But with that challenge comes the best feeling after and I can't say enough good things about Captain CrossFit. Great gym, great people.

Here are some links!


The kind folks over at Signazon recently sent us one of their canvas prints (see it here). It's really well-made and a great addition to Hank's office. The color totally pops, and unlike some of the other canvases we've had made the color is just as bright on the canvas as it is on the computer screen. We're really happy with it. Signazon makes a few other items too (wedding signs, window decals, etc.), so be sure to check them out.

I love this blog.

  8. Quite interesting report. Esp. the actual is an acronym employed to secure the brain. I wouldn't have seen this on my own. Will need to examine carefully old images to determine this specific feature.
