Awesome buttermilk cupcake recipe here!
Happy Thursday, friends! Can you believe it's almost Friday?
You know the drill by now: write down a few things you've been thinking this week, and then link up below so that others can read what you've shared, too! Right click and save the photo above if you want to use one for the Thursday Thoughts link-up or make your own!
Nick got yet another medical school interview invitation! It's so exciting. This next one is in mid-February at Stanford (I know, right?!) and consists of 10 mini interviews each eight minutes long. During these, you read a scenario that is written on a paper posted outside a door, then when they tell you to start, you go into the room and tell the interviewer about how you would handle the situation. It sounds awesome.
Mere, one of the sweetest bloggers I know (also a native PNW-er, so I love her regardless) sent me a tweet today because she noticed I hadn't posted in a while. So sweet! Just to let the rest of you know, life has been awesomely busy, but I haven't forgetten about my blog friends!
I don't care who you are, if you have an exhaust pipe larger in circumference than my leg, you're a jerk. This is a blurry picture because we were at a stoplight and I was trying to stay far back, because anytime he accelerated, a huge black smoke cloud would erupt out from the top. Not only is it absolutely disgusting, it has to be completely distracting (and unsafe!) for anybody driving near him. Ugh!
(Yes, it's in his truck bed. It looks like a smoke stack, right?!)
It's Girl Scout Cookie time! I only bought one box for myself (they call them shortbread now, but when I was a Girl Scout, they were Trefoils) and a few boxes for Lisa in Norway, but chances are I'll buy at least two more before they stop selling them this year.
Speaking of Lisa in Norway, she asked for some ouchless black hairties since apparently they don't believe in painless ponytails abroad. While I was shopping for her, I found these. They're silicone-like, have no elastic, and are one of those products that will either work fantastically or fail miserably. I bought them to send to Lisa, but I may steal one before taping up the FedEx box!
Dissertation prospectus ideas make me want to barf. Every time I think I came up with something good, my professor tells me its either not easily doable, a poor idea, or just not going to work. Grad school sucks.
On February 1st, I'm linking up with Hollie and some girls for a Valentine's Day link-up. I'll be introducing a sponsored giveaway that is Valentine's Day related, so be sure to stop by next Wednesday!
Here's hoping that the end of your week goes swimmingly! Link up your Thursday Thoughts here:
