Link Love: 1/18

Guess what?!

It’s January 18 which means my birthday is in four months.

Write that shit down – I’m expecting my mailbox to be flooded with presents 🙂 And, since I’m talking about it, I’ll be 31, which thinking about it, feels so much more “in my thirties” than turning 30 did.


I’m super pumped it’s Saturday. For whatever reason I had a bummer week – any time I tried to make plans they ended up being cancelled/rescheduled. Lame. I even had plans for last night that I was pumped about (it’s a toss up if I was more excited about the plans, or the idea of steak sandwiches for dinner) that didn’t end up happening. Home alone on a Friday night. *whomp whomp*

But! No more pity party here. It’s Saturday and tomorrow I’m going to the ballet. I’m pretty sure the last time I went to the ballet was in 2007, so it’s been a loooong time! I’m going to see Romeo & Juliet put on by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, which is one of the best ballet companies in Canada, so I’m really hoping it’ll be enjoyable.

Skinny: The Ultimate Compliment? via Snack Therapy <– I love Carly so much. I even wanted to share my comment here with you because I think her post is so, so important! So much YES to this post! Lately anytime I see the word “skinny” in anything (blog name, book title, whatever) I get all twitchy. And I HATE it when people call me skinny right now. Mainly because I lost weight because of a very stressful situation and it wasn’t healthy, so everytime someone points that out to me, I’m reminded of everything I went through and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. Mostly…..
