Not unlike all the other Fridays that sneak up on me, I’m feeling extra unprepared today. Like when you hear from an old friend who happens to be in town and she wants to stop by in ten minutes but you’re wearing your heart bathrobe and you haven’t seen the floor in weeks. But COME IN, you say and you genuinely mean it because real friends never judge and they don’t care about the fact that you have a towel wrapped around your head.
It’s Friday and you know what that means. LINKY TIME! Don’t forget to stop by and visit my bloggy besties Lindsay and Krysten. Share with us the things you are grateful for this week (please, no link dumping!) and happy weekend, sweet ones!
On to this week’s favorites:
- Thai food with a girlfriend in a cute little hidden restaurant in town. We were even entertained by Dancing with the Stars which the restaurant owner gleefully watched between food prep
- Ebates. I’ve only earned a few dollars from shopping so far (have friends who’ve earned hundreds!), but I love that it requires very little work and is applicable in quite a few stores I frequent anyway
- This powerful piece about sexual assault written by a dear friend (my sister from another mister, really). She was my roommate when I studied abroad in Heidelberg, Germany and I just love her so very much
- Girlfriends who don’t ever bat an eye when I request that we move our party to the quiet antisocial party in the back because 1) I can’t sit and eat on a bar stool and 2) anxiety and 3) loud noises
- The end of election season is almost here
- This unbelievably delicious Peanut Tofu Buddha Bowl. Bryan and I had something similar in a Thai restaurant in Amsterdam and I’ve been dying to recreate it. This recipe comes very close and the sauce is mouthwatering.
- Lululemon pants that do magical things to the ass. Also, free hemming! Going to pick up my pants this weekend (hopefully)
- Exciting new partnerships/collaborations coming to the blog, including Punk Rawk Labs vegan (you may remember I did an incredible giveaway with them last winter)
