Weekend Links

The image above is very fitting, and it goes along with an old post of mine, titled the same.

The Ultimate Guide to Chocolate Chip Cookies. Seriously though, this blogger baked a whole lot of cookies and I find this whole post fascinating. And now I want a cookie!

Why Stephen King spends so long writing his opening sentences.

I have this all ready to go, for once Charlie gets here.

Moorea's new shop is open and it's BURSTING with amazing items.

These Baked Brussels Sprouts Chips over on the sweet Lindsay's blog look so good!

"Madonna's diet is the hardest I've ever tried..."

The new Juniper line releases this weekend!

Some tips for creating an art-friendly home.

Currently posts around the web: Lauren and Cam (who was actually an old student of mine- she's the sweetest!).

Have you checked out the Acute Designs Etsy shop yet? So many beautiful things.

Loved this: All My Exes Live in Texts: Why The Social Media Generation Never Really Breaks Up.

(Uncle) Jesse and the Rippers, anyone?

"The Conversation We Need To Have About Women and Anxiety."

A great, honest post over on Drea's blog.

3 relationships tips that keep the good times rolling!

So this article suggests that there are two ages when we are our happiest.

Dying over this onesie- if you have a mama-friend who plays the violin or cello, get on it!

"Sex and the City screwed up my sex life"...can you relate?

My most favorite gift to give for a new baby. So soft and washes so well!

Healthy, crust-less pumpkin pies...perfect to satisfy this yearning for Fall I've been experiencing. And some bonuses: there's no sugar added, and they're gluten-free.

Wishlist: this top, this dress, and this bobbi pin set.

And finally, some more posts I've loved from this past week: My Trip to the Mountains, For Austen-ites, and Tiny Dancer.

Enjoy, and have a great weekend!



  1. I love the three relationship tips. I think they're spot on and I think it's things we might not realise till we're a little older and been through a few heartaches.


    1. I totally agree- definitely enjoyed that one! :)


  2. love your links as always.

  3. Seriously seeing Jesse and the Rippers the other day brought me so much joy it's ridiculous.

    1. Right?! I died the first time I watched that. Memories...

  4. AWW thank you so much for including me :))
    Also, that Jesse and the Rippers thing was amazing <3

    1. You are so welcome! :) You and your blog are wonderful.

  5. I love, love, love watching children work with art materials. Whether it's a guided project or just give a kid some materials and space to work with, I enjoy watching their creativity and spirit shine through. As a preschool teacher, I always tried my best to incorporate art in my groups/lessons/units. And yeah, things can get messy, but there are so many little things you can do to keep it relatively clean...though getting messy is part of the fun! I went on a home visit and a parent put up pictures frames in her children's rooms and swapped out the work every few weeks. Such a wonderful way to celebrate their art!

    SATC: The non-realistic budgetary issues always made me laugh. Even as a teenager I knew that there was no way Carrie lived in that apartment on a writer's salary. I don't think it ruined me for anything. I like to celebrate the friendships on the show and laugh when some of the conversations with my girlfriends unintentionally mirror episodes I've seen.

    The Rambling Fangirl

    1. Yes! I think kids and art is the coolest thing ever. We don't have a children's art studio in our town but I always wish we did. The closest thing we have is a pottery studio. Maybe one day!

      And about SATC I have always felt the SAME way. Like, c'mon! But other than that I felt like so much of it was so relatable. It's weird how long ago that show was on television. Time flies.

  6. I have yet to get tired of watching the Jesse and the Rippers video! Have a great weekend, Danielle!

    1. Ha! I think I watched it 3x in a row! :) I hope you have a great weekend too, lady! xoxo

  7. The anxiety article and the relationship tips are both great reads :) Thanks for sharing!

  8. You are right about the chocolate chip cookie post. Give me a cookie now!

    1. Ugh, right? It made me crave one in the worst way. I also couldn't believe how in-depth she went on those things!

  9. Thank you so much for mentioning us Dani!
