Executive Summary | Links for your weekend | 07.23.10

My usual blogging set-up.  Netbook + throw pillow (DIY) + thumb drive on a futon.

What a whirlwind week it's been. I hit my stride full pace on Wednesday afternoon and am spending the rest of the week laying low and writing away (for work, not for play, but still having fun).  I am excited that I have nothing more than Saturday morning yoga and Sunday morning church planned for this weekend!

On an exciting (link-related) note, check out the interview I did yesterday with New 10 (remember my post on their site last week?).  Still feeling a bit giddy.

Here are my favorite reads for this week.

  • Speaking of food, one of my favorite candies (and there are many) are the classic See's scotchmallow.  Cupcakes Takes the Cake has found them in cupcake form.  I'm pretty sure this is what we'll be eating in heaven.
