The weekend is upon us again. I have, thankfully, nothing planned. Our trip to Portland last weekend means the house is in a bit of disrepair. I see toilet scrubbing and vacuuming in my near-future. Luckily I'm off for dinner and wine with my Arizona bestie tonight. Otherwise, it will be a low-key weekend. Hope everyone is enjoying possible sunshine and a few days of rest. Here is a roundup of links from the cyber world. Enjoy!
This article is a must-read for anyone considering quitting a corporate job (or any 9-5) and becoming an entrepreneur. Just the bit about sleep is worth the read.
I am constantly on the hunt for a new handbag. I can never find one big enough to handle the books, notepads and laptop I haul around. This one is on sale but still such a splurge.
My daughter read this book in one day and declared: it made me forget I even own an iPad! I am reading it now, to be sure it wasn't inappropriate. She's only 11, after all. Anyone read it?
I die laughing every time I watch this AFV video. Even my kids love it. The whole thing is funny, but the end kills me every.single.time.
If you've ever wondered what it's like to be the teased, bullied, overweight kid in the crowd, this is a great read. It's such a compelling reminder why we need kindness and connection; everyone has a struggle.
Just in case you need yet another article on your radar, this piece about frenemies is hitting home as I watch my daughter wrestle a little with friends, puberty and the struggle we all face when we have to ask ourselves: is this person a true friend?
At the airport in Portland, my bag was searched three times and run through the scanner at least 5, holding the line up for twenty minutes, over this face wash. It was taken from me by a disgusted TSA employee. I have traveled all over the country and internationally with this exact tube of beloved face wash and never once had an issue. Portland is serious about that 3.4 oz. rule, people. I will be buying it again, however, as it's the BEST FACE WASH EVER.
With that mini-rant, I'm off to fold laundry, foam roll and head to work. Enjoy your holiday weekend, which I hope is extra long and relaxing.
