Happy Weekend!

I can't remember the last time I was this happy to see a weekend. Maybe it was in June before I got an entire summer off? This week wore me out. My busted ankle blessed me with a terrific emotional meltdown. Time to regroup and make up some sleep. I thought I'd link to some of the wonderful things I found on the web (and in life) this week.

Kandee Johnson, blogger, makeup artist and Youtube channel owner. Cheery how-to videos about makeup, fashion, hair. Fun.

m. writes, a lovely mom blogger I discovered this week. Her blog has a section called "write club." She's smart. She's artistic. She's creative. I dig it.

Tracy on the Cheap who puts together outfits I enjoy. I am all about these little pink ballet flats.

Goofy clay LOST figures
on Jorge Garcia's blog.

Trinny and Susannah (of original British What Not To Wear fame) have a new show on TLC called Making Over America.

A hilarious broken Maytag washer/newborn baby drama frustration-induced narrative over at dooce.

Danica is giving away an iFitness belt on her blog, Chic Runner, in this post.

Pioneer Woman posted an excellent post about making jam, if you're looking for one.

Have you seen True Blood lately? This week's episode had me on the edge of my seat.

Erin, who went to my high school and now lives in Juneau, AK, is thinking about hosting a Yoga retreat. Check out her post about it here and pass it along to anyone who you might think would be interested.

Bakerella posted these instructions for adorable Cowgirl Cookie jar mixes. So cute!

My East Coast bud Heidi of the Lance entitled While My Boyfriend Was Sleeping, whose writing I admire and enjoy, wants you to meet her bridesmaids.

Cool Blogher connection made: White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett meets and posts a blog with links to a mom blogger's discussion of Health Care. Sent to me by Patty, math teacher extraordinaire, and the person who told me about blogs in the first place. Very cool story!

Tomorrow I'm having a lazy day, maybe a pedicure. Sunday is a trip to Ikea with K. I'm going to try not to wait until 10:00 PM Sunday night to grade the papers I brought home. Go out there and do something fun this weekend.
