Happy Sunday! I’m feeling much better after a few nights of adequate sleep, and we have had perfect fall weather here lately, so I’m in a pretty good mood. Today, I’m linking up with Amanda at Running With Spoons to share some of the good stuff I found on the internet while I was lying around in sweatpants, watching Mean Girls, and sniffling pathetically this past week. Enjoy!
