Friday Links to Love

Hey guys, did you hear that you can now capture and share mini-videos on instagram? R.I.P Vine.

I hope this doesn’t mean that my 45 minutes I currently spend on insta will turn into an hour to view all of the clips. I also hope I don’t try to be all artsy or cute with the new capabilities. I’m just getting used to text and arrows on my photos!

This week has been a long one. From delivering some bad news in a meeting yesterday to continually adding work to my desk, I’ve pretty much had all I can take. 

You’re in luck though, because that means I got all of these links for you!

Go on, you can be excited!

Timeout: Cute GIFs

I really need to plan ahead, but it’s that time of month again at the day-job where I can’t spare another minute, not even to recap my weekend away as promised. I want to do the weekend wedding post justice and don’t know that I’ll be able to articulate very well after staring at the glow of my laptop for 16 hours on Tuesday. 

If you’re new around here, I recommend you check out a post from two months again that I will continue to reference because 1. I love my losing song and 2. I don’t know if this feeling will ever change during the first week of the month as long as I’m in my job.

Once you’re done reading there, how do you feel about adorable GIFs from Buzzfeed?

See all 40 here

See you again tomorrow!

Friday Pick-Me-Up

This has been one of the very longest weeks of all time for Dan and I.

We were both slaves to the office over the weekend, several early mornings and late evenings later (besides Monday) and here I am going on only a few short hours of sleep and a pretty long day ahead of me.

Rather than a Week 7 Cohabitation post I’m going to share some things that made me take a step back and smile this week – hopefully it will make your week go down a little better too!

This wonderful latte from my neighborhood coffee shop:

This internet meme (Harlem Shake) that’s super silly – especially the Tracktown USA version:

or this:

He brought me dinner last night and we ate at the office table. Such a wonderful guy – and I’m sad too, he can’t leave because I drove.

This silly bucket of sloths:

This TED Talk about the Power of Introverts

I have a massage tomorrow – hello Physical Therapy!

Thinking of making these yummies via Brooke, these brownies via Marisa… and apparently running a lot to work it all off!

And this amazing human jumbrotron:

I’m wishing you a very happy Friday and hopefully a less hair-splitting one than mine!
