Friday Faves

* A Song: "Blue, I'm so Blue" by Willy DeVille

* Great Read: Missed Connections by Sophie Blackall

* Funniest Moment: I needed to send myself a reminder and I used the voice mode on my phone.  I said, "Finish yearbook."  That is not what it recorded.  Since Sloane's iPad is linked to mine, my reminders pop up on her device.  I'm not sure who laughed hardest when the alarm went off in class and she read the message from Mom out loud.  "Finish your butt." 

* Something to Make: tealight transformation

* Tasty Treat: old-fashioned potato candy

* Images of the Week: Cramped Hong Kong apartments from above

* Anticipating: Taking Sloane and her best girlfriends to see Toby Mac on Thursday. 

* APPspiration: Percolator

* A Post: by Steven Crowder.  Amen, I say.  Amen!

* Quote of the Week: "Life is insane with lots of awesome." Karen Walrond

* PINspiration: a place for dioramas and models by Ciara Brehony

* Film Fancies: Paper Is Not Dead on Vimeo 

* BLOGspiration: Obvious State

* In Case You Missed It: Ordinary Miracles

How funny, especially that she read your message out loud in class! I haven't had a chance to visit your links yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Have a great week, Relyn!

Always enjoy this list and the links you share.

I grew up in Washington State and miss the mountains but like you say, it's family that makes home.

I have never heard of potato candy! That is a combination of ingredients I would never have dreamed of putting together - but fascinating!

Jaime said...

lol! Finish your butt... reminds me of that scene in Finding Nemo. "I touched the butt." haha!

Holy doodle... I love living in small cosy spaces, but Honk Kong has gotten a little bit extreme! A little TOO cosy!
