Cheers to the Fricken' Weekend!

What are your plans for this weekend? It's St. Patrick's day on Sunday! Anyways, thank goodness its Friday! This week was beyond crazy for me, so I am looking forward to hopefully a relaxing day at work tomorrow (yep, I work six days/week) and a much needed day off on Sunday. Instead of my regular Friday's Letters today, I thought I would share a few of my favorite links this past week (or two)...!

+ I love, love bloglovin' and being able to organize all the blogs I follow. But I'm a little confused -- earlier this evening, I had 190 odd followers, now its says I only have 100. What the heck? Has anybody else noticed this on theirs? 

+ I am going shopping on Sunday and will probably spend way too much at this store. I am loving all of their new Spring 2013 arrivals. 

+ Heather posted about her experience with putting olive oil in her hair to help with dryness from blow drying and straightening. Have you ever tried this? I think I may have to try it over Easter weekend! 

+ Lemon Chicken Romano, oh this looks so delicious! I also love all the recipes on Cooking Classy! 

+ Fonts, fonts, fonts. I am addicted to this. 50 Fonts | Best for Wedding Invitations. I only booked marked this link because I love finding fonts. Not all are free, but some are! 

+ Table for Two is my second new favorite go-to-site for finding new recipes. 

+ I think I should go and buy some essential oils for the next time I get a bad headache! Much better than popping lots of pills! 


  1. I love love love that Impossible Things article; thank you so much for sharing! I think I'm going to try them all starting tomorrow.
    As for the Bloglovin' thing, I have far fewer followers - but I lost a significant amount a couple of hours ago. I assumed it was just people unfollowing, but if it's a problem a lot of people are having?

    1. You're welcome! I figure I will have better luck attempting them if I start small and make them a habit. Otherwise it will never happen.

      The bloglovin' thing was a glitch in their system, super annoying! It's been fixed tho! Hope you had a great weekend :)

  2. I don't seem to be having a problem with my follower count, I hope the issue gets resolved though!

    For St. Patricksday I'm heading down to our Irish Pub in a city nearby. It's probably going to get a bit hectic and chaotic because it's such a huge event and there's always loads of people that come to the pub, but the problem is that the pub isn't that big!

    I found your blog via the aloha friday bloghop + I'm your newest follower :)!

    1. I think it only happened to a few people! Apparently its all fixed now. Sounds like you'll have a fun St. Patrick's day, drink a few for me! :)

  3. hmm, the bloglovin thing... i noticed there was a mass exodous, and i kept getting emails of new followers to my account. with all the new people joining, i kept checking, and i could've SWORN i was close to 500 followers. but as i check again, it's only at about 350. so weird!

    1. I had the exact same thing; I sent them an email and got this reply....

      "i'm sorry but it was a bug in our code that showed the wrong number of follower the last weeks. And now its corrected."

  4. I'm not having any Bloglovin' follower issues since I don't have very many anyway (18) so perhaps it's something only affecting those with bigger follower counts? Hopefully it sorts out for everyone affected! :(

    1. I don't think a lot of people did; I contacted them last night and they said they have fixed the issue. Here I was all excited that I had all these new followers and it was just a lie! :(
