Good morning, everyone! I hope that all of you had excellent weekends. Personally, all day Sunday, I felt like it was Saturday. So the fact that I’m suddenly back at work this morning feels like I got majorly ripped off.
Luckily, this particular Monday is shaping up to be about as great as any Monday can be. I have my football season opener to look forward to this evening AND today I am all sunshine and sparkles because of my feature over at the home of one of my bloggy bffs!
Sah-weet! I am so honored and excited to be Laura’s Favorite Lady of the Week! If you happen to be visiting for the first time via The Purse Blogger…WELCOME! It’s so nice to meet you and I hope you will stick around!
Let’s see…what else is going on…
Well on Saturday, I got my teal pedi in recognition of National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. I first heard about Teal Toes on my friend Lisa’s blog. As some of you might know, Lisa sadly lost her battle to this silent killer a little more than a month ago and I think the Teal Toes program is such a sweet (and fashionable) way to raise awareness. Lisa LOVED all things fashionable.
I even took a picture of my scary feet to share on the Teal Toes Facebook page. Be very afraid.
While we are on the topic of helping people, I also wanted to mention my friend Jennifer over at Mudpies for Mommy. Jennifer and one of her two adorable sons, Luke, suffer from a condition called Neurofibromatosis, and unfortunately Luke has a tumor behind his eye that needs to be continuously monitored to make sure it doesn’t grow. Her husband is participating in a marathon on January 17th and is raising money for NF, and when she asked me if I could please pass on the information to friends, I told her that I would love to help. So for more info, check out Jennifer’s blog. (She also has a feature called “Things Kids Say Thursdays” that cracks me up on the reg!)
And finally, you most likely haven’t noticed this yet, but there is a new page tab at the top of my blog. It’s the one up there that says “The Etsy Mall“. *points*
Saturday night, I was drinking beer and watching Jennifer’s Body (which is pretty much one of most worthless movies ever and I hate Megan Fox and have no idea what I was thinking when I decided to watch it), when I came up with this brill idea. We are all so supportive of our bloggy friends in this wonderful community. And I know that so many of my bloggy friends are so talented in ways other than writing – whether it be painting, or baking, or making jewelry, or being crafty – and that they maintain their own Etsy shops just like I do. I thought The Etsy Mall might be a fun way to showcase the creative endeavors of my bloggy friends in one place.
So if you have an Etsy and are interested in being listed in my “mall”, shoot me an email at saltsays@gmail dot com with the code to your Etsy Mini Gallery. Please set it up as a “gallery”, featuring items from your shop in the 2 column/2 row format. (I put mine in there as an example.) Listings will go in alphabetically and I will be making a badge for it soon that we can all use.
And then we can all go shopping.
Have an excellent Monday everyone! GO RAVENS!!
