I just finished Bossypants by Tina Fey and it cracked me up. She is extremely funny (not shocking), but also obviously very thoughtful and a great writer (also, by the way, totally fine with f-bombs. Just thought you should know before running out and reading it to your five year old or something). It is written as a series of connected essays, and I found myself reading several of them out loud to my husband or sending them to my mom and sister. A fun, quick read.
I understand the Kindle opposition; I too LOVE the smell and feel of books, but I was over the moon yesterday when I discovered my dear Anne Shirley Blythe can be gotten for free for the Kindle. Now she goes with me everywhere. I love her.

I kind of have a wild hair that I want to do it this weekend. Which, check back with me on Monday because we will see.
I just read Pioneer Woman’s official confirmation that she’ll have her own show on the Food Network soon. Wow! See how blogging can pay off? Two book deals, a potential movie deal, and your own tv show. Way to be awesome, Ree! I am sure I can anticipate the same for myself in the near future.
Today I found a recipe for cinnamon rolls that doesn’t require proofing or rising? What?!? I am going to try immediately. Also, on the exactly opposite end of the spectrum, chocolate cookies with yeast. My whole world is flipped, turned upside down.
Is the song in your head now? One of my favorite bizarro phenomena of the modern era is that anyone of my generation (early-mid 80s babies) can sing every lyric of that song with almost no prompting at all. It’s universal (alright, United-Statesian).
Gratuitous baby cute:
This was taken the day she started getting roseola. We thought she was just grumpy but she was on her way to sicky. She’s all better now, though!
