These were my favorite posts this week:
Aimee at Artsville is starting a fun new weekly venture called “list it tuesday”. I love lists. I’m always making lists. I already have my list ready for this week.
Waiting For Our Miracle had a great post for anyone going through infertility. Or maybe even better for someone who hasn’t. It gives a great twist on the perspective.
Oh Goodie Designs made some pumpkin brownies. I would gnaw my right arm off for some right now. That sounds a bit drastic but it is Halloween.
Write Brained shared some awesome pumpkin carvings. Next year I am so going to attempt some fancy designs since I will have a nice long porch to show them off on.
Tip Junkie has a list of homemade gifts in a jar. Possibly the perfect way for me to worm the way into the hearts of my soon to be new neighbors so they don’t get mad when I put the pinto up on blocks in the front yard.
Calmly Chaotic showed me the boots that will be on my wish list for x-mas this year. Yum!
In the controversial corner this week:
Momma Made It Look Easy took on the horrible article about the fat show. I do NOT want to give the magazine anymore publicity but feel free to hop over to Momma and check out what she has to say. On one hand I find the original article distasteful because we have no problems showing people with anorexia in every tv show so I don’t see the problem with some fluffy people having a show. I say this as a fluffy person. I will, also, admit that while I don’t like to hear it – part of my weight problem is me. I do not have control over genetics or PCOS but I do have control over the emotional aspect that can keep me in check. So while I don’t like hearing it I have to admit, though it is more difficult for me than lots of other people, I can do a better job at managing my weight. I just don’t like to hear it from a stick figure with an attitude.
The Saga of the Concrete Jungle is a blog I follow of a gentleman in prison. His sister posts his blogs for him. I like to experience his point of view and I especially enjoyed his post this week.
