Fun Things To Read On A Friday


Hoooooooooooooooooooo Boooooooooooooooy, y’all IT IS COLD!

By the looks of Instagram that weather is chilly where you’re at as well. I know out here in California our “cold weather” gets a chuckle from other parts of the country, but let me tell you — it’s all relative, and we’ve been spending as much time as possible curled up under blankets all week long! Even Buster is over the cold weather.

This weekend we are headed to our favorite annual holiday party (good food, good friends, pub style trivia + white elephant gifts! YAY!) but I also plan to spend some serious time in the kitchen making some WARM ASS FOOD. If you have a soup/stew recommendation, leave it in the comments. I’m dying to expand my repertoire!

Hope you keep cozy all weekend and have a great one! Now, let’s get to some links!


*Best thing I read all week: 10 Things I Want My Daughter To Know About Working Out.

*Everyone needs to eat. Not all of us need to cook. I related to this so much.

*19 Signs You Are Doing Better Than You Think. Damn, you guys. We’ve got it pretty good!

*More good advice on how to Be Friends With Failure.

*I think making this recipe with sweet potatoes could be DANGEROUS. In the very best way, of course!

*Now this is a totally awesome, non-twee maternity photo shoot I can get behind! It’s not so much that I am anti happy belly pics, I think it’s more that I just love the concept of a dramatic “Glorious Portrait.” And what’s more glorious than GROWING A HUMAN?

*This might seem completely out of left field since I’m not even a Jonas Brothers fan, but I found Joe Jonas’ perspective on fame and working for the Disney machine completely riveting.

*This NY Times article about how overweight patients face a bias in the doctors office reminded me of this video that I wish the world would watch. (I’ve posted that video before, but it has such a powerful message I’m doing it again!)

*Stephanie put together a great list of Paleo Holiday Gift Ideas for the Foodie on Your List.

*I think I may NEED this t-shirt.

*If you don’t find this adorable, you may not have a heart: Cats Giving High Fives.

*Here is the NY Times 10 Best Books of 2013. Have you read any?

*Not in a book mood right now? How about 10 Inspirational Movies to Watch This Weekend. (I can get behind all of them except Meet Joe Black. ACK! I hated that movie.)


Books, movies and blankets — aw yeah — let’s get this weekend started!

      Maybe I need to rewatch it. I remember seeing it in the theater and HAAAATING it, but then again I was 20. And I love ALL SORTS of things now that I hated at 20. In fact I was kind of surprised to see it on a “feel good” type movie list because that’s not how I remember it at all.

      Give me a pass? :)

      Yeah, it is EXTREME. But I guess my facebook feed is just too full of the pics of chicks sitting cross legged, holding their bellies that when I saw it I was like “WOW! Now THAT is committing!” LOL
