goldie hawn yo-yoing This is, hands down, the best baking contest EVER invented. Now who wants to come over and dream up a killer cake with me?!? (Thank you, Megan, for the heads up!)

Speaking of female food things: Engagement Chicken: A History of Romantic Culinary Bullsh*t.

Thank heavens I’m not the only one who wants to Skip the Wedding, Stalk the Hashtag. #whew

Top on my list of fall-y things to make this weekend: Apple Peel Bourbon and DIY boot socks.

As someone who lost two Grandmas to Alzheimer’s disease, this poignant and love-filled mini movie had me crying in my cube.

It’s been a month since I read this woman’s story, and my thoughts still keep coming back to her.

On a lighter note: Bob Weir and Jerry Garcia’s AIDS PSA blooper reel. I die.

I have a file going of prints to hang in my fantasy kitchen. These beauties by Amy C. Evans are officially on the list.

Well that’s it for now. I’ve got a full day of work ahead and then I’m heading to Rollie’s in St. Cloud to see Mr. Moe Bandy perform. If you’re unfamiliar, listen to a few of his songs while you check out this round-up of his album cover art. He’s an under-appreciated gem of ’70s-era country, if you ask me!

3 new takes on classic summer lemonade and summer salads made for toting. Who wants to picnic?

Poignant shots of modernist homes just prior to their demolition.

In defense of old-lady perfumes. Amen to all of this.

Really digging this #girlboss video series that’s going down over on Nasty Gal. Lots of inspiration and wisdom in those two-minute videos!

Last but not least, a candid interview with lil’ ol’ me re: my favorite local thrift stores and people I like on Twitter (and in real life).
