Odds and Ends

1. A bunch of new paint colors gone hilariously wrong, thanks to Artificial Intelligence.

2. If you read anything today, I recommend this. Beyond frightening.

3. The new midlife crisis. Are you feeling it? Yep.

4. Trolling protestors. I’m down with this.

5. Sexism is so incredibly subtle, many don’t even realize. Heard it all, how about you?

6. I have been known to engage in this kind of behavior. Kristen Bell, I feel you. #workinprogress

7. Hey dudes, not sure about your behavior? Like, maybe it could be considered sexually harassing but you just don’t know? #megaeyeroll Just do The Rock Test!

8. At 42, it’s official that I can’t wear stilettos anymore. No way, no how, just NO. These (in black velvet) are my new go-to wedding/cocktail party kicks. (Under $100!)

9. WTF is going on here and why is it so pretty?

10. This. Rupi Kaur always speaks to me.

11. Hair, hair, hair. This week’s podcast is all about hair. Listen below and/or show notes here.

Wednesday’s Child: Paige & Colton

Every Wednesday I feature a child recently highlighted by a local Wednesday’s Child newscast to share the stories of children from around the country who are waiting for a family. My hope is that this can broaden exposure for the children highlighted, but also serve as a reminder that these children represent thousands of children currently in the foster-care system. Perhaps their stories will inspire you to consider opening your home to a child needing a family. For more information and to learn about other waiting children, visit AdoptUsKids.

Odd and Ends

1. If reports surface that La Croix is bad for you, I’m dead. Feeling this.

2. Colin Kaepernick has decided not to kneel after reading your aunt’s Facebook post. Heh.

3. Have you heard of Astro Poets? So cool.

4. Tilting. I’m totally into this. A future podcast topic, methinks.

5. Speaking of podcasts, we took a diversion from our originally-recorded 3rd episode to talk about self-care in the face of tragedy. Very needed this week.

6. I don’t know how I landed two advanced readers (Maybe taking them to the library every week for the entirety of their young childhood?), but this is a great resource for those of you with younger kiddos that are reading beyond their age.

7. Oh. Remember the black boots I traipsed around Europe in last year? The best boots in the world? 25% off right now. PRIVATE25 is the code. DO IT. #enabling

8. Entirely by accident, but Dustin and I are almost at this point.

9. Things harder to obtain than guns. Geez.

10. Holy moly. Every single cognitive bias in a single infographic.

11. Emotional labor is the unpaid job men still don’t understand. Preach.

12. I. Cannot. Stop. Laughing. At. This.

Wishing you a happy weekend, friends.
