What are you up to this weekend? We’re going sledding and generally trying to embrace the giant amount of snow/slush out there! I’ll also be making these bad boys this weekend, just ’cause. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…
The cutest Valentine’s Day gift for guys.
How seven couples do money. Fascinating and worth reading.
Chocolate cat tongues are a thing.
Could you make five dinners for $30?
Just got this shirt, and the color is even prettier in person.
Beautiful traffic lights, of all things.
Plus, a great reader comment:
Says Katherine on advice for your younger self: “Years ago, I nervously emailed my mom that I didn’t think I wanted kids, and she sent this back: ‘Bah! Dynasty Shynasty! Being a grandma was never my goal in life! But DAMN I LUV my kids and so glad your dad and I changed life gears and made beautiful babies! I love being mama to my girls but I do not think it is the only path in life. One day you will have a sweet dog and that may be what makes you happiest, whatever you choose is cool with me!’ I think that that attitude (‘I love being _____ but I do not think it is the only path in life’) was just the greatest thing to encourage in a nervous young girl. Trying to celebrate what works for you while also holding space for what might work differently for other people — that’s the best advice I can think of. Oh, and my mom also gave the second best piece of advice I have ever received: ‘You know, babe, orange lipstick just doesn’t look that good on you.’ Thanks, Mom. You were right.”
