First, Pinterest. I love it! I get up in the morning thinking "I wonder what new things I'll find and pin today!" I seriously do! (Do I need help?) I'm sure that will wear off since this was my first week using it, but I'm really happy that I've found a place full of good ideas that is so easy and pleasant to use. I found a bunch of good things this week, and these are three of my faves (editorial restraint in effect!):
|Prince Edward Island. I'm going here in June!|
|My old love, ballet.|
|I think this is so funny!|
2. The second thing that's been keeping me preoccupied this week is Downton Abbey. I really do love this show, and it keeps getting better and better. And for some reason it's been in the news a lot this week. First there was a good article about its popularity. And then I saw this article about what the actors look like in real life. And finally there's this article with great book ideas of what to read once Season 2 ends until Season 3 begins (next winter!). And there was a hilarious video that had me cracking up all week that was a spoof from Saturday Night Live of the show for Spike TV. I was going to post it on here because it's really funny, but yesterday NBC removed the video from everywhere because of copyright issues. Bummer!

Romney is a strong leader who is electable because independents like him and he's proven that he can work effectively with Democrats, and Santorum is the Washington insider who seems to be a genuinely nice guy, and the
4. I'm sorry, #4 isn't lighthearted or fun, but it will be quick. I won't ever support Planned Parenthood. Ever. They may do some good things for women but that doesn't change the fact that I think it's a horrid organization that does some really reprehensible things. This op-ed piece from The Wall Street Journal explains why I feel this way.
5. On a lighter note, last Saturday night I indulged in the best bath I've had in a long time. I took a totally relaxing bubble bath with the jacuzzi jets going and my head resting on a soft bath pillow, and soon after when I got into bed I felt like I literally melted peacefully right into a good night's sleep. It was so nice!
|Those are totally my legs and pretty painted toenails.|
So those were some of the things that made up my week. I hope your week had good things in it too!
