mid-week round-up

Hello friends! What’s going on this week? With everyone’s talk of “sweater weather” and cooler temperatures, I’m feeling a bit like I have the opposite of Seasonal Affective Disorder. We’ll call it OMG WHY HAS IT BEEN HOT FOR SO MANY MONTHS??? Syndrome. Maybe some activities to mark the passing seasons would be helpful?? I already put up some Autumn/Halloween decorations but what else could be fun? Any ideas?? I’m all ears! Also, the comments on this post make me excited to continue sharing about mantras in the coming weeks. ‘Til then, here are some links…

What have you been up to this week? Did you know 1.23 billion chicken wings are eaten on Super Bowl Sunday, nearly four for every American? It’s safe to say I ate my quota! Did you do anything fun for the big game? Besides football, my TV has been glued to this show. Have you seen it? I would highly recommend! Especially if you’re mourning the loss of Parenthood or, like me, you have a girl crush on Gaby Hoffman. Hope you have a fun week, and here are some of my favorite links of the day…
