Hullo, hullo! Happy Sunday to ya 😀
To be completely honest, it doesn’t feel like the weekend at all. I guess the holidays must have thrown me off a little, because I woke up yesterday with absolutely no notion of what day it was; and I couldn’t get used to the fact even after I learned it was Saturday. But Saturday it was, which means that Birthday Week has officially begun And to celebrate day #1? A little something that I’ve had my eye on for a while now…
A new Silpat! I would have taken it on a test drive by whipping up a batch of cookies, but I’m still not quite over my Christmas cookie coma, so the baking will have to wait. And speaking of baking… thank you guys for your input on my very important decision — the Almond Butter Cup Brownie Cake is in the lead for now, but I’m thinking that I may end up improvising by combining a few of the recipes because they’re too good to settle for just one. I’ll keep ya posted 🙂
But enough with the birthday talk — today’s all about the link love. I didn’t think I’d have much to share since it’s been a pretty slow week in blog land and I didn’t even spend that much time on the computer, but I still somehow ended up with a pretty good collection, so happy reading!

Yesterday: errands, coffee with a friend, caught up with another friend who’s visiting from out of town.
Today: church, braving the mall, dinner with the family.
