Links You’ll Love – Random reads for the week

Links You'll Love - main

This has been quite a busy week for me. Apart from helping a client launch a new project, I had to deal with some domestic matters that got me semi-stressed: Our fridge conked out! Yup, bye-bye ref. Still, it was a good turn of events in the end, because I had been contemplating getting a bigger fridge anyway. Our 8.5 cubic foot ref had seen us through almost six years of pantry stocks, even stored breastmilk (yay for me!). It’ll always have a sentimental spot, being the first big appliance we ever owned as a newly-married couple back then.

I’m actually excited about our new and bigger fridge, which is arriving on Saturday afternoon. We actually bought it last night, making a quick trip to SM to select the next star of our kitchen.


Paid in full… like God, for my salvation. LOL.

I’m just thankful that God provides, and that we could afford this new purchase! It’s the first time I’ve ever bought a fridge, so I feel a sense of accomplishment. (Will probably go on a semi-OC fridge organizing trip on Sunday… I can feel it.)

Next item: Kitchen Aid mixer or Brevill Juicer? (Or rather, sugar-promoter vs. raw revolutionizer?)

Good things always come to those who want to see them as good. Right?

While I bemuse my soon-to-be-delivered fridge, here are some links this week that provided some uplifting vibes.


My writing elsewhere:

I’m writing for The Work at Home Woman today, on a topic I’m passionate about: work-life editing. I write about how to work less and be more of a “mom” as a work at home mother. Hop on over there, have a read and leave a comment, please? I’d love it if you could share the article as well.

Have you got any interesting reads? Share them with me in the comments? I’m always on the lookout for blog candy.

    Our stove was rendered unfit for use just last week. sigh. We haven’t bought a replacement yet but hoping we will be able to have the means to purchase my dream stove top & oven real soon. A blue Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer and a Breville Fountain Crush Juicer are also both on my wishlist. Congrats on your new fridge!

    Congratulations on the new fridge! Doesn’t it feel great to be able to buy a big ticket item and pay for it in full? 😉 I get a similar thrill every time I purchase new furniture (which is pretty often, according to my hubby). 😀 Have fun organizing the new fridge weekend!

    Get the Kitchenaid Mixer! Go for sweet happiness! 😀

    *I love that Links graphic! I think that’s my favorite of the batch. =)

      It does!! Now I’m looking to invest in a new workspace — needing shelves and other pretty yet functional things!

      The KitchenAid mixer will be the Christmas high-ticket buy. I have to first buy a gym membership because it will only urge me to bake more often!!!

      And yes, I love this one the best, too!
