Best of the Week #8

Oh dear. So far this has been a morning of mild incompetence, scheduling shenanigans, and a generally snowed out brain (on my part). 

But let’s focus on the positives – LLC’s birthday was on Wednesday! Everyone say HAPPY BIRTHDAY NATALIE! (More on the awesomeness I made for her later…get excited.)

And we had a late start at work yesterday due to snow. God bless DC’s incompetence at snow-removal! The only downside is that I was looking forward to a pool workout...and it was closed. Wednesday and Thursday! BAH! Exercise videos in my living room had to satisfy me on Wednesday night, but by Thursday I was desperate enough to resort to sneaking into a friend's gym to use the elliptical. 

On the way to work this morning I listened to this song four times in a row. LOVE Zac Brown Band!

Anywho, my most popular post this week was Wedding Food (again!). 

This is pretty cool – the Earth might get a “second sun” for a few weeks later this year when a star explodes. Interesting…

I thought this chopstick sculpture was pretty cool – 100 trees go to making chopsticks in China every day. This sculpture signifies the waste and was made of 3000 disposable chopsticks.


Wouldn’t it be fabulous to have a keyboard like this one? Though I’d be way too tempted to eat the keys.

This is the most adorable pet ever. I want one. But only when it’s a baby (they’re not so cute when they get older!). Read the article here

  1. ooh could you imagine if you put that keyboard over a bonfire! sweet! toasted completely = nice and yummy!

    I have totally resorted to sneaking into random gyms for just such reasons. Good job for sneaking in and not paying an exorbitant fee. I figure if your not being obnoxious and breaking things - let a girl use the gym for free and get a workout in! Yea elliptical in replace of a pool.

    Last thing, is this second sun going to be an issue with warming trends? I"m excited to read the article - which I wrote this without reading first, so if it answers the ques. sorry.

    So, enjoying to continue to read and I like this new best of feature! great addition! PS. totally saw that book you talked about last week (The Gurnsey Literary and Potato Pie Society) in the library and picked up - just because I saw the title on your blog! can't wait to read it and see if it's my type of book :)

    Have you read The Shack yet? I finished that a couple weeks ago = awesome!
