What are you up to this weekend? We’re heading upstate with some friends, and I’m glad that the boys will just run around in green grass for a while! It’s nice to get some fresh air sometimes :) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…

Plus, two great reader comments…

Says Meg on writing vows: “My husband and I wrote our vows. Writing them was easy, but in the weeks leading up, I practiced reading them aloud and cried each time. My anxiety was at an all-time high as my turn to read them during the ceremony approached. As I read, I choked up and could barely speak. A few sentences in, I said, ‘When I practiced I cried much later,’ and as I looked out everyone was crying and laughing. It’s an unforgettable moment that I always think back to.”

Says Natasha on exercise habits: “Gretchen Rubin’s ‘habits’ archetypes (Upholders, Obligers, Questioners and Rebels) are great for building an exercise routine. (She has a quiz to find out which one you are). I loved the story she tells of two Obligers who came up with an ingenious trick to make sure they both kept exercising: at the end of every gym visit, they’d swap one running shoe, so if one of them didn’t turn up the next day, the OTHER one also wouldn’t be able to exercise! Hilarious, genius, brilliant.”
