Link Love: 3/15

Let’s see if I can get my ish together enough this weekend to get this posted on Saturday for y’all!


I do have a fun weekend ahead, I have free tickets to the Calgary Auto Show, so I’m planning on stopping by with a friend, I also have dinner reservations for dining week. Look at the menu! Dinner2

Doesn’t that just look amazing?! I’m also hoping to go see Need For Speed…partly because I love Aaron Paul and partly because I love action movies with cars 🙂

I’m also semi-obsessed with the missing airplane and have been reading all the links I can; however, I’m not including them in here becuase I feel like it’s all speculation. A friend of mine has his pilot’s license and he’s explained some of how radar and transmitters and the like work, but none of it seems to make much sense at all. It’s all just so, so weird.
