Fascinating Friday Links #28

Good morning!

Alright so the warmth was only playing hide-and-seek, because it has returned with a high of 45*F today. Yesterday’s high temperature was 20*F, and the wind was out of control. Not hurricane status, obviously, but it was strong enough to throw me off balance when I was getting the mail.

I think Thursdays are currently one of my most relaxing days of the week (I’m tellin’ ya— it’s the new Friday!). Of course there’s still school, homework, and dance, but for some reason, I feel like I have a lot of down time in between all the activities. I’ll take it :) Tonight I’ll be babysitting my cute Valentine’s date, so my plans will involve diaper-changing, burping (the baby), and maybe a little yoga again. Just being domestic, right? I should just become a housewife right now and call it a life. That requires a husband though, so I guess I’ll stick to college first. ;)

And here are this week’s Fascinating Friday Links! Enjoy!

  1. i have NO friday night plans which i’m pretty stoked about!! the weather is supposed to be gorgeous today so i’m hoping to get outside for a nice long walk!!

  2. Awhh you’ve got a date with that cutie! I don’t have any set plans but I’m having my niece over (who’s a week older than me! yes really) so we’ll see what we get up to ;) .
    Gosh, the last time I encountered Mr.Bean was when you featured him – ages ago – love him! So funny :) .
    Hmm I agree we need to change our perspective on the term ‘overweight’ ..sad how it has reached such a level of controversy. And it seems like the standard of a ‘normal’ weight has gotten ridiculously low.
    Great now I want that deep dish cookie to fall from the sky for me!

  3. “10 ways you know winter owns you” lol yessssss!!!!
    No plans tonight aside from a hot date with my couch 😉but after a hectic week I don’t mind!
    Have a great weekend Alison!💗

  4. Such great links, Alison! I especially loved the one about doing what you love TO DO. Sounds like you have a fun, relaxing Friday night on the agenda! My Friday night plans are low-key as well, though this weekend is shaping up to be busy with lots of fun plans. Have a great one!
