Happy Friday!!!

Hello, my lovely friends!  

I cannot tell you how happy I am to be wearing jeans, a sweater, and boots today.  I'm also wearing my pink button top (part of the new year's resolution), but I'm super toasty and comfy in all of my RTW gear.  I like Me Made May, but getting ready this morning was a joy because I knew I wouldn't be cold :)

Here are my favorite things this week:

I am going to put this list of 21 Quick Tricks to Feel Better Instantly in my cube.  And add Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia as #22.  

This picture made me so very happy.

My awesome friend, Becky, is opening a bakery in Chicago!  I'm crazy excited and proud of her - her treats are delicious, and I definitely will be ordering some for my birthday :)

I work in HR.  If you are currently trying to get a job, please look over these charts.  They will definitely give you a new perspective on interviews and potential employers.

Yep, I totally signed up for StickK when I read about it here.  I'm working on my goal of exercising three times a week, and if I don't, money goes to charity.  I never want to work out, but this is a great perspective to have on the subject and something I'll try and think about next time I want to avoid the gym.

I want to make this and put my face in it because I want to be immersed in the awesomeness of the goat cheese.  I love goat cheese.

An interesting article for us who blog: How Yahoo Killed Flickr and Lost the Internet.  I would be curious to hear some of your thoughts regarding Flickr.  As much as I would like to, I just cannot get the hang of using Flickr - I'd rather use my Picasa web albums on Google (especially now that they have incorporated Picnik as the web editing tool! Thanks to Alessa for passing that AMAZING tip onto me!)

I agree with this entire post 100%. My favorite part is #6: Always touch your fabric.  I've learned this the hard way myself, and it's so very important!  

Friends, what are your plans this weekend?  I'm going to an antique show (don't tell Rob - I am pattern hunting - he thinks we are looking for furniture) and I also plan on getting pictures of my Sew Weekly Vegas outfit.  Due to amount of flesh that is revealed, it's essential that the pictures be taken in sunshine.  (If we are going to commit to this ensemble, it needs to be warm.)

Have a great weekend, all!! 


  1. Have fun antiquing! The historical society I work at is having a tag sale tomorrow so I'll be in a big room of antiques all day as well, but I'll be working. Get good things! Thanks for the links!

  2. Super fun links today! I really enjoyed all of them! Let's see, tomorrow I have a bridal shower to go to, but it's a zombie laser tag bridal shower (what?!), so super fun! Hopefully I'll get to squeeze in some sewing, too!

  3. Love, love, love the interview charts you posted! I am currently looking for a job after not having to do so for about 8 years. I am rusty, and these are very helpful.

    1. (not to mention hilarious at times)

  4. Have a great weekend. Love that yellow dress too. Also the charts, very interesting.

  5. Thanks for including me in your favorite things, Meg!!!! :)

  6. I'd rather use Picasa too, but I recently had a blog issue where it said I was out of storage and would have to start paying for it. I was able to upload a few photos a few days later with no trouble, after I deleted a few, but I may have to start using Flickr as my main photo storage and just pasting the html into my post in order to avoid my blog no longer being free to maintain. How annoying.

  7. WHOA OMG WHAT?! Google/Picasa/Picnik?! Where was I?! I'm off to investigate the possibilities, especially since Flickr makes is hard to pin images on my blog! WTF?
