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’ yaβ€” 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 πŸ™‚ 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?Β 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. πŸ˜‰

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. Getting dinner with my long lost best friend! One thing that sucks about college everyone moves away from each other wahhh!

  3. 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 πŸ˜‰ .
    Gosh, the last time I encountered Mr.Bean was when you featured him – ages ago – love him! So funny πŸ™‚ .
    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!

  4. “10 ways you know winter owns you” lol yessssss!!!!
    No plans tonight aside from a hot date with my couch πŸ˜‰but after a hectic week I don’t mind!
    Have a great weekend Alison!πŸ’—

  5. 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!
