Weekend Link Love – 05.30.2011

Confession of the night: I am sitting here eating some peanut butter for dessert because I am too lazy to go out and buy more chocolate. (There are only a few tablespoons left in the jar so I won’t accidentally eat too much.) As a kid I loooooved spoonfuls of peanut butter. It had to be Jiffy of course (at my Grandma’s) – my mom didn’t buy sweetened peanut butter. I used to think “natural” peanut butter tasted like ass. I like it okay now though.

Weekend Link Love

(Inspired by MDA)

So… how was your Memorial Day weekend?

Mine was great. (I am done with my peanut butter now.) I actually was in Jersey (from Saturday early morning to this – Monday – afternoon) because Bobby was off at a music festival (Sasquatch) and I didn’t want to be lonely. Which is why I got to do yoga with my friend and why I was so busy that I had no time for blogging. I love New York but I also love being in the country. It’s really nice to smell things that don’t smell like garbage. Like trees! And the Delaware River! And fresh air! I even brought back my softball glove because I’m going to play on a rec team (affiliated with my college) this summer. I’m excited for that. I played softball for several years back in high school and middle school. Anyway it was a great weekend. Right now I miss my cats though (and Bobby still) icon sad Weekend Link Love   05.30.2011 Because we’re going on a trip (thank you thank you for your recommendations by the way), my mom is watching them for the next 2 weeks so I am all by my lonesome. To be honest I actually can’t remember the last time I had a night alone (no cats + no Bobby). This is what happens:

Organizing! (Tea, in this case.)

Do you have a lot of completely alone time? Do you have any? What do you do?

    I enjoy a lot of alone time, usually during the week. although I enjoy Star company a lot, I still enjoy alone time. is that bad? what do I do? nothing special that I wouldn’t do when Star is. I guess it’s a mental thing, have the freedom to do whatever I want wheneveri want even though I don’t feel any restriction otherwise. ok, this is confusing, I’d better stop here,
    have a great evening Maggie!

      @coco: I really enjoyed my alone time! I kind of wish I had more actually – like in Sex & the City :) I think we talked about this before actually.

    I love organizing – it’s something I really should do more often as I find it so therapeutic!

    I’m tempted to cut all my hair off too maggie. Ugh, It’s driving me nuts, but whenever I cut it short, I end up regretting it b/c it turns into a major frizz bomb. The length helps weigh down the curl/craziness, but I’m going to check out the haircut link anyway.

    I have to admit, I love tempeh bacon, but there is nothing like REAL bacon from a pig. ;)

    OK, loved that girls hair, and it’s a good length – reminds of Zooey Deschanel who I LOVE. Might try something like that but lighter on the bangs. :)

      @Heather: I think I’m gonna cut mine. Mine isn’t long enough to get that girl’s haircut but I may try a shorter variation! I’m glad you liked it!

    New to your blog! I found a link through Biz’s 101 Days of Summer Challenge :)

    I can’t remember the last time I was alone a night without my hubby and pup…I don’t know that it’s ever happened, actually. I think I would probably workout, blog, and cook…the usual :)

    Aww, looking forward to checking these links out, especially the one about Zen meditation! :D

    I must admit that I’m quite dependent on alone time, and need more than other people to feel well. During that time, I usually just do my things – work/read/write, play the piano, blog, go for a walk, do housework, stock up on groceries … Pretty normal, I think. But I need this time for myself. (This was also what I’ve done last weekend. :))
