around the internet no. 1

It's snowing so profusely outside that I feel I ought to turn some Christmas music on and bake some cupcakes. I just might yet today, because I'm definitely not going anywhere.

Today's blog post is the start of a new series here on my blog. Every morning I get on Facebook and see all kinds of awesome links from the various pages/blogs I follow. I then proceed to share a few of them on Facebook. But I think maybe it'd be more efficient if I just shared them all in one place that isn't Facebook. So, without further ado, I present to you "around the internet" a posting series of links that I find in my travels and explorations online.

  1. I saw that homemade bronzer recipe the other day--thanks for sharing it--and I can't wait to try it! We were making brownies last night (yes, with white sugar and margarine...but I put my foot down and we used white-whole-wheat flour ;) ), and Joshua got cocoa all over his hands, and it made me think of that again. :)

    1. You're welcome! I can't wait to try it, either. :) As for baking with white sugar, etc, I have kind of a lot of it to use up...haha. Also, butter is WAY better than margarine!!!
