Weekend Links

Pop of neon 
loving this little pop of neon

Happy Friday night! Hank and I are having a wild night in. I spent the morning at CrossFit and we did a "fun" partner WOD. It was awesome. Afterward Henry and I did some food shopping, then he napped while I got us a little more settled in (we got home from CA last night). Later on in the afternoon I met a couple of my girlfriends downtown and we walked with the little ones, got caught up and then Hank got off work and we grabbed some Thai food to go. Now he's watching Captain America (boring) and I'm playing online and texting with Autumn. Aren't you glad you know every detail? Ha.

I also should add that I am SO excited for tomorrow. CF in the morning with Hank (Henry is loving the child care there by the way) then we have a date night tomorrow night. Can't wait.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend too!

p.s. I know I need to do a video blog. One day soon, I promise. I'm not in the habit of saying I'll do something and then not doing it...so yes, it will happen! Promise. ;)

I wanted to share a really neat app that I've been using recently. Popset! What's neat about Popset is that it allows you to keep all of your photos from an event, party, get-together, whatever, in one place. AND it allows you to do group sets, which means your friends can all add photos into one big album. I love this feature because there are always a million texts full of photos going back and forth between our phones as we all try to get all of the photos from a fun night, and this totally takes care of that problem. And better yet Popset uploads an entire set at once to Facebook. So simple. You can also edit a whole set at once with its neat filters. That's a lot of gushing but you have to try it out to know what I'm talking about. It's free, so check it out and let me know what you think!




My friends at Capture This made this awesome video...I love it.

  2. Captain America boring?! Gotta disagree on that one. Maybe it's 'cause you've seen it too many times? My husband sat me down to watch them all before we went to see the Avengers in the cinema and that was one of my favourites. Now Thor I can take or leave...
    Thanks for the links. You may have talked me into eyelash extensions and I am delighted you are a Guardian reader :)

  9. I always adore your link lists. So good.

    Sweet Danielle, thank you for linking to my blog! It was a total daymaker. Though I did have a little giggle at the fact that you put "Lovely Lady Kathleen" when it is really "Lovely Lady Katie(or Katie Ann)". No worries though. It brightend up my day.

    Have a great rest of the weekend!

  12. Ahhh these are all great links! I keep emailing them to my sister and telling her to check them out.

    Your on a list with Emily and Jef!!!!!

    I love your updates on Crossfit. I'll have to tell Scott about it and see if maybe he would be interested in doing it with me especially since it has childcare for Judah! We have been wanting to get into something together especially since when I first met Scott a few years ago he had a random movement disorder (he had it for five years). He would all of a sudden not be able to walk and would have these super scary spasms, I had to call the EMTs to the house twice and a month and for the first few months of Judahs life I couldn't leave Judah alone with Scott in fear that he would drop him from his movement disorder, but we saw this Dr who essentially cured Scott (long story and I'll have to blog abt it at some point) and Scott can not only walk but he can run and he can workout :-) so we want to do something together to celebrate this :-) its been over a year and a half and he is completely fine :-)
