Tuesday Treasure Trove

Tuesday Treasure Trove: this week's round-up of read-worthy links.

Things of Note:

We’ve got icy roads here in Austin again today. Hopefully the city doesn’t rack up the same crazy car-accident tally as last week (250 wrecks in a 36-hour period – yikes!). It basically means I’m not going anywhere today, even though I have errands to run. Growing up in Ohio, I know how to drive in ice and snow, but apparently a lot of Austinites don’t, so I’m not going to risk it. I may or may not risk taking outfit photos outside. Leaning towards no right now, as it’s only 27 degrees at the moment.

Is it all wintery and cold where you are? Is that normal or abnormal for where you live? Definitely abnormal here.


  1. You consistently put out the best weekly links posts of all the bloggers I read. I spend forever clicking the links and reading the articles and LEARNING SOMETHING. It’s awesome. I just spent at least an hour on the traveling around the world site you linked to.

    1. Thank you so much!! That’s awesome to hear. 😀 I try to pick links that I’ve found particularly interesting or thought-provoking, glad you think so, too.

  2. It’s actually in the 40s here, which is normal for Utah. Every year, January and February are warm-ish and in March and April, we’ll get snow. ;.;

    I cannot tell you how much I love the idea of the book changing temp/vibrating/etc. SO COOL.

    I am definitely an asker!

    I can’t wait to read more about the pro-choice article. I am anti-abortion (unless the child was conceived from rape, or there is a complication medically for mother or baby), however I am pro-execution in many cases. Which really, is just the tip of the iceberg that is how you feel about anything. One reason why I never vote is because I have so many issues with what either candidate is promoting. Some may have this, which is good – but others have this, which I don’t think is good, etc. I simply talk about and support what I believe in! 🙂

    1. How is it warmer in Utah than in Texas?! Something is not right.

      I liked that particular article because I think she does a good job explaining that pro-choice does not mean pro-abortion or anti-life. She’s actually very life-positive, she just also thinks that the only people informed enough about their particular circumstances to make that kind of choice are those people themselves, not legislators far off in DC or men who have no concept of childbearing. She raises a lot of good points. Definitely worth a read.
