    Month End = office insanity. Well I guess spending last week doing more gallivanting than working was not the smartest idea 😉 .
    A trip to the beach for walk this morning made me happy though 🙂 ..and stealing plenty of blog-reading breaks between all that account recons! Love, love, loved “Ten years from now”. And dang that fudge sounds dreamy!

    Oh, dear, I love love love your weekly “good good links” posts (this sounds so ridiculous :D)! I read them every sunday as my little afternoon treat 🙂 but most of the time I forget to leave you a feedback – so, keep in mind, I really like them and please keep on doing them 🙂

    Have a perfect sunday and a great start to the week ❤

    • Miss Polkadot says:

      Aw, Juli, you totally made my day with your comment. Knowing that these kind of posts are part of somebody’s Sunday routine is amazing. I promise I’ll keep doing them – just for you, obviously 😉 .
      Have a great start into the new week, too!

    Ok, so I totally got lost in a sea of links over here! You don’t even WANT to know how many tabs I had up on my computer earlier! Haha! This has got to be one of my favorite Good Link posts, yet! The “Looking at these 6 things…” article? Did you click on the photography link in that? WOW…talk about a change in perspective! And I LOVED the useless facts…pretty sure knowing one of those things is going to benefit me later in life somehow! Though I’m proud to admit that I knew the thing about the flamingos! *bam*

    Those sweet potatoes look like heaven! And I’m actually surprised you linked them, Miss Tater Hater! 😛
