Weekly Wrap Up #12

So what have I learned this past week?

  • Giving up a pet is hard, and leads to random bouts of ugly crying. {I sure do seem to cry a lot...I blame my ovaries.}
  • High on my list of Things I Dislike is being blamed for the errors and/or stupidity of others--I'm very sure that I am not unique in this. So why do people still do it? #lifequestions
  • Mashed potatoes with gravy is a completed and balanced meal, and I am not ashamed to order it for lunch. 
  • Sometimes you have to get over your preferences, and adapt to someone else's style. In the long run, it will make everyone involved happier. 


Although I'm a big fan of my own work, I also enjoy what other people create. What were my favourite finds this week?

  1. Kendall's sweet honesty made me cry.
  2. Bobbie wrote a fantastic review of  The Casual Vacancy, and I wholeheartedly agree with her. 
  3. I loved Kendra's easy to follow tutorial on how to change the colors of your Passionfruit widget. {this involves changing your CSS, so don't forget to back up your blog before you do anything!}
  4.  Have I mentioned that I'm a sucker for cute nurseries
  5. The tutorials that Lindsay from Shrimp Salad Circus creates are amazing. 
  6. Do your looks affect you in the business world?
