Better late than never?  I had a crazy day yesterday, starting with an 11-5 shift at work, and ending with me passing out at midnight (even though I was supposed to pick the boyfriend from the airport at 3am).  Oops.  Don’t worry, I’m taking him out tonight and plying him with tequila.

And here are some things I hope you’ll love this week:

& Caitlin of Healthy Tipping Point linked to this amazing recipe for banana soft serve.  I say “amazing recipe” when really it involves bananas in a food processor but really, who would have thought?  I want to mix up some bananas and mixed berries – I think that sounds like heaven.  Plus, it’s both raw and vegan!

Mandi of Making Nice in the Midwest posted a lovely post titled Blogging Wisdom and a Fresh Start – I think many of us could use one or the other!  (Full disclosure: I found her post via another blogger’s weekly links – it might have been Kaelah or Sarah Von.)

Frugal Doesn’t Mean Cheap.  I hope I’ve linked to some of Shannyn’s content before, because her blog Frugal Beautiful is phenomenal!

Erin of Hammock Pack had a fantastic idea: she started her own subscription box company based on “staycations” – she sends the R&R right to your door!  I will definitely be signing up for one of her boxes.  (Found via Kaelah Bee.)

& I think it’s a distinct possibility that Roxy has one of the coolest lives ever. Gators and Roller Derby??  Sign me up!

Have you heard of Gadchick yet?  If you’ve ever been frustrated by how male-dominated the tech industry can be, and if you’re sick people trying to sell you a camera because “it’s pink!!1”, then you need  to check them out!  You can find the past two issues of their magazine free for download here.


Grab some tea or coffee and enjoy your monday!  I’ll be back later this week!
