Hi, hi! Happy Sunday. Happy October.
So I’m pretty sure I haven’t left my house in about 24 hours. No, wait. That’s a lie. I did manage to drag myself out to the Y for about an hour yesterday evening, but other than I’ve been hanging out inside trying to avoid the bad weather outside. Honestly, though? I don’t even mind the gloom and doom around this time of the year… It makes things feel more Halloween-y, and makes me feel less guilty for wanting to do nothing more than hang out at home with a bowl of mac ‘n’ cheese.
Oh man. I think I’m on my 3rd or 4th batch of that cheesy sauce already. I whipped up some more yesterday, along with a few other recipes that I’m looking forward to sharing with you guys this week… provided the weather actually clears up enough for me to take pictures. It might today, which means I might even make it out of the house 😝
Anywho! I hope you guys enjoy the links I found for this week’s Link Love, aaaaand I’ll see you tomorrow. Have a good one!
