Roundup of Links I'm Lovin

Hey guys... Happy Thursday!

 Right at this moment I have this cooking in my crock pot at home. Mmmmmm...

Split pea soup, gonna be so good!  It even rained last night so (hopefully) it won't be like eating hot soup on a summer night this evening!  We'll see.  ;-)   
(Thanks JENNI for the recipe!)

A Few Notes from Neverland: 
 * * * * * * * * * * *
1) The lovely Erica, over at Mi Todo has been writing a Throwback Thursday series, 
to document events/trips that took place pre-blogging.  
We've emailed about co-hosting a link-up!  
I know I have tons of ideas already.  She has already done quite a few fun ones!  
In fact, her trip to British Columbia is what inspired my first Throwback post, and I wrote about Vancouver last week.  :-)  
Erica has kindly offered to make us a button so we should be getting something a little more organized together soon!  
So, if you think that sounds fun... 
a) let me know! 
(so I can try to put you on some kind of reminder list maybe? Am I that organized?? We'll see.)
and b) stay tuned!

2) The typewriter necklace giveaway is still on over at Be Freckled, check it out

3) My BRAVE giveaway is still going on, see below!! 


On to some link love... 
I keep a running list of stuff I find online that is fun or interesting, and I figured why not share it with you, my wonderful readers?  :-)  
I hope you find something you like, or a new blog to read, or just a laugh!

1) Ex-pat blogger Lauren and her husband devised an adorably cute plan for finding out (and revealing) the sex of their TWINS!  Too stinkin' cute if you ask me. 

2) If you liked this post I wrote mentioning The Babysitters Club, you will LOVE this site.  Trust me, just click on it!

3) I just love these journals, recipe organizers, planners, etc. from Gadanke.


4) Alyx is another momma-to-be blogger.  I seriously love her baby thoughts so far.  
I kinda love her in general, she's a cool/funny lady.   

5) I LOVE THIS ETSY SHOP (Pretty Whimsical)!!   
Especially these Scrabble tile pendants... I could buy one for everyone I know! 
(As demonstrated below. A few for me, a few gifts.  I think I could go for a baker's dozen actually!  haha)

 #1 for Me, #2 for Gesci, #3 for English 
#4 for Renee, #5 for Me, #6 for Janna
#7 for Gesci, #8 for Kristen, #9 for my Mom

There are also a few new blogs that I have found via giveaways and swaps I've been involved in lately:
Nikki won the yellow/gray earring giveaway on Mish's blog  

Erica won the butterfly earring giveaway on Kristen's blog 
Elise is my ornament swap recipient 
and Crystal is my ornament swap giver via Erin's swap!

If you are on the look out for new blogs, check these ladies out! 

Hope everyone has had a good week so far.  Looking forward to Friday!  
Although I found out this week that my company "accidentally" scheduled our floating holiday incorrectly.  We all THOUGHT we had Monday (Veteran's Day) off, but we don't!  LAME! Luckily I didn't have any real plans but still.. I thought it was gonna be a 3 day weekend!  :-(  Well, at least Thanksgiving is coming up.  ;-)
