Friday Favorites 3/8/13

Posted Mar 8 2013 in , , , , , , ,

I haven’t done a Friday Favorites in what feels like forever. I’m not even going to go look to see how long it’s been. The truth is, I’ve let a lot of my blog reading slide. There are still blogs that I read daily, but I never remember to make note of them to put […]

Before I get to my mash-up of awesome links for the week, I have something to show you. I recently had a birthday and I guess it was supposed to be a big one (see the title). I’ve said it before, I’m not much for celebrating for myself, but my best friend and I got […]
