Things I’m Loving This Week

  • The Pioneer Woman: First of all, the lady is hilarious. I can’t tell if she’s joking half the time or not (you’ll have to check it out to see what I mean), but it seems as though she used to be a real diva before she settled down and had kids. Now, she spends her time taking care of her family and loves it. She has a few different parts of her site, including a photography section, but the one I’m finding I love the most are her recipes.

Try her take on lasagna — it really is the best!

  • Cake Wrecks: Lisa showed me this blog and I’ve been cracking up ever since. The commentary isn’t even necessary half the time — the hideous cakes pretty much speak for themselves.
  • Tip Junkie: Whoever runs this one is my new BFF. This is a great source for DIY ideas of all sorts (especially for the scrap booking type), and she always has plenty of contests and giveaways.
  • This fabulous article on being more assertive, written by the inspiring Gala Darling. And while you’re over there, poke around a bit and check out some of the other things this pretty purple-haired lady has been up to — such a fun read.
  • The Maxi Dress (whose name always has me struggling not to stick a “pad” in there somewhere) really has won me over. I think it was Ashlee Simpson that did me in on this one. She just looks too cute. You know, in a hippie, pregnant sort of way.

  • Two Words: Jamba. Juice. I went through a phase where I couldn’t stand the sight of the stuff, but with the revamping of the menu (which slightly confuses me, I have to admit), they brought back an old favorite — the Strawberry Surf Rider (formerly known as the Strawberry Tsunami)… Strawberries, lemonade, peaches, lime sherbet – man, oh man. Oh yeah, here’s buy one, get one free coupon, perfect for a cheap date, yesss.

And that would be all for now, my lovelies. What are some things that are making you swoon at the moment? Spill it!

  1. I can’t take credit for Cake Wrecks completely. Someone left a comment on my friend Cara’s blog telling her to check it out and I went to the link. I read the whole thing that night and was crying with laughter. I think it’s my new favorite blog.

  2. Yay! Thanks so much for the link to the jamba juice coupon! You are the coolest! Woo! I’m pumped! And dude — I totally love the strawberry surf rider! love how tart it is! I always get it. I used to get berry lime sublime — which they also took off the menu. (you can still get it though) I know what you mean about the maxi dresses — i was def not a fan — but I think it would be so cute/summery/comfy on a cute pregnant girlie like you!

  3. dangit! I wrote a really long one too… ok, anyways, do over! you are totally the coolest EVER for posting that jamba link! yay!!! and i always get the strawberry surf rider! I love how sour it is! it kind of tastes like a starburst! and i was totally with you on the maxi dress — i dont know if i would ever wear one but its cute on ashley and i bet it would be cute on you! it looks so summery/cute/comfy, especially for a preggers girlie!

  4. I like the maxi (pad) dress look too – but I feel like I’m too short to pull it off. I think it is a perfect maternity dress though – especially for summer!

  5. I would have to wear some pretty TALL shoes to wear one of those dresses… but I so want to. Sometimes the hippie in me just wants to come out and who am I to deny her? (p.s. my inner hippie is named Rain should she come out while you are around)

    starring this so I can check out all the linkage later.

  6. I’m trying that lasagna tonight with some “Gourmet Lisa” twists. I’ll post a blog about it later. Thanks for the recommendation :).

  7. Such fun links! I must check out this Pioneer Woman, everyone raves about her.
    I’m craving Jamaba Juice too!! oh, there is nothing like the Orange Dream Machine. I could seriously have Jamba Juice all day long, I think. Thanks for the coupon link!

  8. Ok, now I’m just going a little comment crazy. But I have to say thanks for posting the lasagna. Although I was a little too lazy to go out and get all of those ingredients, I did have what it took to make the better homes and gardens recipe. Your picture was inspiration, and my family thanks you too- it was the first time I’d cooked in probably over a month!
