mid-week round-up

Happy Wednesday!! How’s everyone’s week going? Although we had yucky weather all weekend (keeping us out of any water), we still managed to have a lovely time soaking up the last days of summer. We ate at a new restaurant, explored, hit up an arcade (I love a good pinball machine!), and watched this wacky movie (have you seen it?). Now it’s back to the grind with a productive week. But before I get tucked in with work, let’s link…

mid-week round-up

The Queen has arrived with this week’s Finding Delight mid-week links round-up! For those who don’t know, I’m Adam, and publishing this post in memoriam of Finding Delight’s editor-in-chief. (JK she’s still alive). Full disclosure — I’ve waited a year to guest post on Finding Delight, a feat that has been delayed solely by way of my own laziness and HGTV. But since this go-get-em blog is celebrating its 1 year anniversary(!), I’m taking the opportunity to give lazy Beth a posting break.

Below, please find links to a few of the things that have given me pause for thought over the past few days:

This Kylie Jenner birthday post definitely gave me pause for thought.

You just you simply must go see this documentary: Ballet 422.

Speaking of movies, did you catch Cinderella at the theater this weekend? I bet you didn’t know the original Cinderella’s more complicated backstory, aside from her scrubby clothes.

This song rocks.

Did you know poop will be the ruin of Mt. Everest?

Please read this long read: “My Saga, Part 2: Karl Ove Knausgaard’s Passage through America.” And read the beautiful Part 1 via last week’s mid-week round-up. (Also note: Part 1 sharing credit should have been directed to this post’s author. Note to editors: I’ve note-ified my agent of the oversight. Final note: Noter and out.)

Are you in your PJs? Need a hard cry? Watch this less than 3 minute video produced by The Man.

Ashely Judd: This wildcat womyn is maybe my spirit animal.

KALE!

< Note to editors: What else can I shamelessly self-promote here? Please insert something. >

And just because I can-can, here’s a Beyoncé music video you’re required to watch. Under Beyoncé law, of which we are all, you are indeed required to view/pray with this video before continuing your day.

…I’ll wait…

Bless you.

And that’s all you get this week! In all seriousness, congratulations on year 1 of new delights found, Beth. This blog rocks and has forever changed the way I think about soup broths and Gwyneth Paltrow—at the same time. To everyone else, please share this post at your heart’s delight.
