After last night’s big game, I imagine there’s not a whole lot of you being productive at work today.  In between football chit-chat in the breakroom, I hope you enjoy links of things that are occupying my thoughts this week.

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies from Bakerella.  OMG, these are good.  We whipped up a batch of these babies Thursday night and I forced the Boo to take them to work on Friday.  I had to get them out of the house. I have zero self control when it comes to chocolate chip cookies to begin with, then you add an Oreo in there? Trouble, trouble, trouble.

This list of adorably awkward mutts.  Say hello to the Cheagle, aka the cutest small dog ever.  I’m not normally a little yap-yap dog kind of girl (if it can fit in a purse, it’s not a real dog), but I would absolutely make an exception for this guy. Those ears! I can’t handle it.

Landmannalaugar, Iceland.  A few years ago, I read a murder mystery book set in Iceland.  Ever since, visiting Iceland has been on my radar.  Now that Icelandair is offering direct, 6-hour flights from DC to Reykjavik, it’s entirely feasible for us to travel there for a long weekend.  I have to admit, I don’t know a lot about the country, but every image I find is breathtakingly gorgeous. If it’s that beautiful in pictures, I can’t imagine what it’s like in real life.


This very concerned cat.  Every time I see this meme, I giggle hysterically.

Disney Princesses in Accurate Period Costume.  I love all things Disney, including this list.  When I was 6, I wanted to change my name to Jasmine.  My parents refused, but (somehow) I love them anyway.  This list only reaffirms my belief that Jasmine is the best Princess of them all (with Mulan as a close second).

She has a pet tiger.   Not sure it gets more badass than that.

Beach vacation must-have: this bright pink wrap dress from Lilly Pulitzer.  For our honeymoon (in 3 weeks!), we’re spending 2 weeks in the US Virgin Islands.  I think this dress would be just the thing for nice dinners on the beach; easy, effortless, and forgiving (important when you’re spending days on the beach gulping down fruity beverages with cutesy umbrellas).

For dinner this week: Peanut Butter and Kale Fried Rice by Connoisserus Veg.  Kale.  Peanut butter.  A vehicle for Sriracha Rice.  All the things.  I picked up 3 pounds of kale from Trader Joe’s this week (seriously, 3 pounds – I couldn’t eat too much kale if I tried), and can’t wait to try this.

      Well thanks! I’m still kind of finding my voice, I suppose, but I’m really enjoying the process. It definitely helps to have found a strong group of writers (I’m looking at you, sir) for inspiration.
