Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a good weekend. Last night Nick and I went and saw the Zelda Symphony at Dallas Music Hall… it was more fun than I thought it would be! I’m not a huge fan of video games (and their music…) but Nick is, so I went along for a date. I love classical music so listening to the video game songs that drive me crazy when he plays them was much more tolerable in symphony form. 

Today we’re relaxing and I’m spending the day in the kitchen, cooking up a storm for the blog and for guests, our friends are coming over later for the Cowboy’s game and for Pioneer Woman’s chicken enchiladas. 

I’m sharing a HUGE list of links from the past two months– all of my posts from the blog, from Artizone (which I write for twice a week) and a nice collection of link loves.
