Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 😀

And welcome to another week where I bombard you with ALL the links. Okay, maybe not all, all — because we’d be here all day if that were the case — but definitely a good collection of good reads.

And speaking of good reads! You guys are rocking my socks off with all your answers on the giveaway post… especially those who made it a point to say no peanuts. I mean, I’d be a little miffed if I came over for dinner and you tried to kill me 😉 But if you haven’t already, make sure to go check out the giveaway if you’re a fan of Erin Condren Life Planners, and I’ll see you tomorrow with some good food!

You guys are my favourite.   For reals. Thank you so [so, so, so, so] much for all your comments, Tweets, e-mails, and blog shoutouts yesterday — you seriously rock my socks off.

For real. If you would have asked me even […]

I’m thinking oatmeal for dinner tonight. Or pancakes. Ooooo definitely pancakes. With maple syrup, nut butter, and berries. Swooooooon. But I digress. It’s no secret […]
