Fascinating Friday Links #11

Woohoo for Fridays! Extra celebrations for us lucky ones who have a three day weekend for either Veterans’ Day or Remembrance Day. As I mentioned in my “Excited for November” post, Monday is also my brother’s birthday, so that should be fun! I hope to get some more blog posts cranked out this weekend as well. Also, sleep is on the agenda hopefully ­čÖé

And as usual, I’ve got some Fascinating Friday Links to share today! This week’s edition includes plenty of information, helpful tips, and drool-worthy recipes.
