Things of Note:
I’m up in Ohio right now hanging out with my mom, so no real news. Yay for scheduled posts!
Did you come across any read-worthy links this week? Leave ’em below!
When and where would you die in a Zombie apocalypse? I died in the MGM Grand in Las Vegas after surviving 6 months and 9 days. Two digital music fun time-wasting sites: Touch Pianist, and typedrummer. A Day in the Life of Pinterest Get Free Wi-Fi At The Beach, But Only If You’re In the Shade. Kind of a neat skin-cancer awareness/prevention measure. Mounting Evidence of Advantages for Children of Working Mothers. “Evidence is mounting that having a working mother has some economic, educational and social benefits for children of both sexes.” Poor Little Rich Women. It turns out that […]
We got our photos back from the engagement photo shoot we did back in April! The weather cooperated in a lovely way, and we caught the bluebonnets at the perfect time- we went back the next weekend and they were already gone.

Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund. This is where I donated. I will also continue to support the artisan communities there. Video of the week: Watch a dog play ping pong. Photo project of the week: Food Gradients by Brittany Wright. Mind-blowing thought of the week: No one could see the color blue until modern times. “Ancient languages didn’t have a word for blue — not Greek, not Chinese, not Japanese, not Hebrew. And without a word for the color, there is evidence that they may not have seen it at all.” Celebrities Photoshopped Into Famous Paintings. And now Leo will be […]
