Good Friday and what I'm reading this week

Happy Aloha (Good) Friday!

This week seems to have dragged on.  Of course here we are the day before company and our house looks like a bomb went off in it.  Hopeless, we are.

  1. Those are some awesome looking links. I'll get right to it! Happy Friday all!

  2. From "What American's Best Couples CanTeach Us About Long-Lasting Love," I really identified with the very last quote: "'At the end of Ty’s life, I want him to be able to say, "Terri was the greatest earthly blessing in my life -- the best thing that ever happened to me -- and that I’m a better man because of how she loved me." And that’s the goal that I live with every day. That’s how I want to love this man.'"

    I think I just found a new goal.

  3. I saw some of these through the grapevine on Facebook this week.

    LOVE the 9 Internet Nutrition Myths, especially the cleanse one. I AM SO SICK of seeing damn cleanses. No I don't want to do one and NO I WON'T JOIN YOUR DAMN ADVOCARE GROUP!?

    I second buying sidewalk chalk.
