Weekend Links

  2 sweet things: sweet Henry, helping me grocery shop, and sweet girlfriends who brighten up your day!

I cringe to even give this guy more page views, but if you're in the mood to read some craziness, check this out: "Tattoos and Other Easy Ways to Ruin Your Body." And of course everyone is entitled to their opinion, but some of the things he says are just...really crazy, at least from my perspective.

No joke, these are the VERY BEST caramels I've ever had in my life. Order, order, order!

If you are looking to get family photos taken, and you're anywhere in the West, contact my sweet friend Lauren- she's SO good. Tell her I sent you!

Why Angelina Jolie's Op-Ed Matters.

Hating on Motherhood: Is it Hip to be Negative? Great post over on Gigi's blog. What do you think?

How to style a long pixie-cut. Short haired ladies, where ya at?

And speaking of health, are you "scale or size?" I try to focus more on size.

I'm Chronically Ill and Still Believe in Body Acceptance.

And finally, if you finish these links, and want some more, head over to my girl Kaelah's blog...SO many good things in that post.


  1. Bummer! The blog that wrote the post about tattoos is now listed private and the post in unreadable.

  2. Thanks for the link to my salad! Let me know how you like it if you make it.

  3. In scale vs. size, I think any kind of numerical reference is useless and can be incredibly detrimental. It would be more progressive to teach people to monitor their health through how they feel rather than an arbitrary number. The people who dictate what is "normal" and "healthy" don't know me and can't know how I feel. I know I feel good, I know my muscles weigh more than any fat I've ever had, and I look DAMN good.

  4. I've heard about those carmel. Guess I need to try them :) Jana @ 333 Days of Hand Lettering

  5. Sweet marriage interview, love ellen

  6. i am proud to be a homebody! in my early 20s i did enough partying and going out for the rest of my life. :) i am perfectly content just chilling at home now.

    also size vs. scale....i dealt with an eating disorder also during my early 20s. i would weigh myself and the number on the scale would definitely determine whether or not i would have a good day. i don't weigh anymore. as long as my clothes fit correctly, i am fine.

  7. Ηey! Quick quеѕtіon that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I'm tгying to finԁ а

  12. I responded to the post about tattoos when I stumbled upon it last week. I was very near irate. How funny that he's since made his blog private...

  13. ooh great links! I'm gonna have to try the avocado hummus. I'm so glad I just found your blog! :)
    have a fantastic day,
    Rebecca @ tr[i]b[e]cca

  14. That first link, that guy is insane. Did you click around the rest of his site at all? He's an absolutely misogynistic super-religious weirdo. Don't even give him a second thought. Also he's only like 22 years old, which makes me sad. Shouldn't he be out experimenting and trying new things, rather than condemning anything different from himself? Poor kid.

  15. Hi there, the birthday shirt you linked to is mine, so I just wanted to say thanks for sharing! :)
