Happy Friday! Less than two weeks until spring!

[This is so not a favorite. But it works, and I've been battling a sore throat all week.]

Here are some links for you this weekend:

Cute and Hilarious
Love these dogs. "We'll just wait here for you!"
Goats Yelling Like Humans
Betsy did a Seven Little Quirks post like mine and I loved it! Do you have one? I want to know your quirks!

A hopeful read: Prominent Republicans Sign Brief in Support of Gay Marriage
This broke my heart at first, but I was so happy to see that update when I went to re-read the article yesterday.
Anne Hathaway: In Defense of the Happy Girl
Loved this woman and was so irritated with the interviewer: 10 Questions for Katrin Himmler
The Tyranny of the Queen Bee: this made me wish I were still writing my thesis!

Pretty Things
These photos are dreamy. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, Sam!
Shannon's blog is so sweet.
I bought myself this sequined collar this week and it's gorgeous! I can't wait to wear it, maybe this weekend. (EDIT: I wore it today! See?)
My friend Eliza just opened a shop full of sweet rugs and other housewares. Pay her a visit!

Literary Stuff
Writers and Kitties. I think it's sweet that Ernest Hemingway makes so many appearances on this blog.
The top ten grammar myths. I love Grammar Girl so much.

It's the fourth (and final) week of the WAALove contest and if you upload a picture of yourself, you can win a Canon EOS Rebel T4i. See details here.


I'm looking forward to picking Rob up at the airport tonight and spending the weekend together! What about you?


  1. Grammar Girl is great! I hadn't read that article yet so thanks for sharing!
    Also, throat coat. That stuff just reminds me of musical theatre in high school. We'd all be downing the stuff the couple intense rehearsal weeks before the show. So I have nostalgic taste memories of it! haha
    I hope you have a great weekend with Rob!

  2. Your Friday posts definitely help me find some good reading material for my slow Fridays at work! Thanks!

  3. I love your culture links this week...especially the Atlantic article about Disney needing an introverted princess. I totally agree...we need more characters like Matilda. Looking forward to checking out your other links. Have a great weekend!

  4. Grammar girl constantly puts me to shame... but I love it!

  5. thank you for all this yummy stuff off to visit

  6. I also wrote a "little quirks" post, which is here (even though I feel a bit awkward about self promotion!) http://the-cup-and-saucer.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/little-quirks.html
    I hope your throat feels better soon- and I love the article about the need for an introverted princess. I think this is partly why I always liked Alice so much (well, that and the name!!) x

  7. Love your Friday posts; you always find such unique articles. Thanks! Maybe I've missed it in the archives, but what was your thesis about? Just curious...
