link love & random tidbits:

covered the OTH theme song last night. I cried.

.The above print- I want it in every room in my house.
::I am tired of worrying & stressing & crying. So what if we don't have all the money in the world? So what if I can't find a job. So what if we end up selling our house & moving in with family until the job market looks up? So what if our family isn't where we thought it would be? SO WHAT? We are alive. We are healthy. We are here. We are loved. That. Is. All. That. Matters.::

.There is thunder in our hearts- lyrics from the inspiring Kate Bush song, printed on a tote by fieldguided. Lovely.

.What do you do with your coffee grounds? You can about imagine how much I throw out every week. I really liked this post on ways to recycle your coffee grounds! First up, I'm trying the refrigerator deodorizer.

.I've been watching Friday Night Lights on Netflix Instant pretty much constantly. It's so good.

.Bedtime story pillowcases; almost as good as being a kid again.

.I love brussels sprouts; this looks so good.

.Mouthful of Diamonds- a very fittingly-named OTH episode from last week; coincidentally the lovely Diana recently blogged the song also. Of course I love it.

.I'm going to do my hair like
this (and I wish it was this red too).

.Yes, please.

.Could it be? A chalkboard ring? I think it was made for me (& everyone on my Christmas shopping list).

.I want to wear this outift everyday. I just need the yellow pants. + cute baby.

.Have you checked out yet? It's a cause that I feel very strongly about.. I've been spending a lot of time reading & researching & talking about it. There is so much to be done. Take some time on their site & make yourself aware.

.Red Velvet pancakes (I know your head just exploded, right?) I can not wait to make these this weekend.

.Love Gives Me Hope-- my favorite night time reading.

.I'm getting really bummed living without my camera. I mentioned on twitter a couple weeks ago that my DSLR suddenly stopped working (lens won't focus; shutter won't go). I'm devastated to say the least. But with the time of year, holidays coming up & the fact that I still don't have a job- I can't really afford to get it fixed right now. B-U-M-M-E-R. But I am going to get some film & slip back into the comfort of my canon ae-1. Hopefully he will tide me over through the holdidays... but seeing family over Christmas will be hard without my third limb.

.And I'll leave you with my favorite quote of all time; because I need the reminder. And because I love it.

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplacable spark. In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all, do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach. The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.
-Ayn Rand
