It’s Friday, I’m home, and it’s SUNNY OUT in Seattle. If my skin wasn’t breaking out while I was concurrently fighting off a cold, I’d be the happiest girl in town. As it stands, I’m just probably just the happiest girl in my neighborhood, which is good enough for me.

I’m off to make myself a cup of team while NOT PICKING AT IT. You enjoy these links.

I know it’s nowhere NEAR Easter, but my jaw literally dropped when I saw these, and I had to share them with you: Cake baked inside of an eggshell. It’s WITCHCRAFT, I TELL YOU!

—————

Entire coastlines in Southern California are glowing electric blue, and – unlike most lovely things in So Cal – it’s totally natural.

—————

The first-world problem of “wrap rage“: it alarms me that this not only exists, but has a Wikipedia page dedicated to it.

—————

Can’t believe I’ve never heard of The Fancy before, but now I can’t look away. It’s the intersection of design and awesome.

—————

A 21-year old American soldier (stationed in Germany, on the base where my father worked for years, and where my brother was born) comes out to his parents on YouTube. It’s nerve-wracking, heart-breaking, and hopeful all at once.

—————

The artwork of Marc Johns is absurd, whimsical, and occasionally downright weird. In short, I dig it.

—————

Amazingly, this is exactly what happened when Rand decided to grow a beard.

—————

My husband works with some of the coolest people in Seattle – check out what they’ve created on their office windows, using Post-Its.

—————

Two guys, one guitar, and a rather delightful bluegrass rendition of “Bad Romance.”

—————

Click on the boxes. Make music. Watch the afternoon disappear.

See you Monday, folks!
