The Gorilla had a meeting in Chicago on our anniversary, so I tagged along for a quick 36-hour getaway. We managed to pack in good food, sweet memories, and a little site-seeing in just one day.
This week on the HH facebook page we talked about the tv series that makes us all cry and I laughed about my wedding's unusual save the date. Before it hits the blog, I usually post on facebook what I'm reading or watching and I love getting suggestions and feedback from you guys.
Speaking of feedback, I'm going to be posting some personal freewrite things on the blog this month as part of my October monthly challenge. Comments will be closed on those posts. This will be fun and scary. Which fits perfectly with the month, right?
For your weekend reading pleasure:
- I know you guys love another good link list, and this is a great one from Alyssa at The Sparkly Life. Such interesting stuff there. (A link list linking to another link list? I'm gettin' CAH-razy lately.)
- Roxanne Gay interviewing Lena Dunham was something I couldn't click on fast enough. Looking forward to reading both Bad Feminist and Not That Kind of Girl.
- One of the best articles I've read about the subject of social media affecting our moods and thoughts: Do you hate Facebook or do you hate your life?
- This was a disturbing article about little girl clothes at Target (I'm linking to the HuffPo follow up, because the woman's personal blog keeps crashing) that has my eyes wide open as my daughter transitions from the toddler department to the girls clothing department.
Happy weekend everyone!
