Link Love, Vol. 24

We made it, y’all—happy Friday!

This weekend should be a fun, family-filled one—I am heading to Harrisonburg, Virginia to see my middle sister, Jennifer, graduate from college, it’s my Mom’s birthday, and it’s Mother’s day! (Hi, Mom—love you!)

It’s nice that all of these activities fall on the weekend after finals for grad school. I turned in my last paper on Wednesday, and we celebrated in class with pizza and a life chat. I can’t think of a better way to cap off the first semester of class. I hope you had an equally carb-filled week and a stacked weekend ahead. To tide you over until closing time, here’s what I’ve been reading this week:

And in case you missed it, here’s what went down on A Touch of Teal this week:

  4. I have avoided reading Sheryl Sandberg’s tribute because I know I’d bawl my way through it. I just saw that pizza delivery/hostage story on a news show. Amazingly smart of her to do that! BuzzFeed is always making me feel super old. Does this generation even understand the importance of Harry Potter? Do they? Haha!

      Aw, I totally cried at my desk at work when I read it! Haha you’re going to kill me, but I actually never really liked Harry Potter as a kid or read the books :x, but I am going to go with, no, no they don’t!

    Those are such great links, especially the one about Sheryl Sandberg. I love when women speak so highly of their husbands. That Pizza Hut receipt was also so clever and I’m happy that the Pizza Hut employees noticed and responded rather than assuming it was a joke. Bravo to them.
