For the Love of Friday

Friday, I'm so excited to see you! It's been a week lacking sleep, thanks to our little 8-month-old kitty. You'd think we had an infant in the house with our nightly wake-up calls. He is relentless! He literally walks all over us, rubs his face against mine, licks my hair, and pulls my hair. Yes, pulls it! He is so adorable, but the midnight harassment needs to stop! :-)

Friday means happiness, and Friday means linking up with Lauren, of course! Here are five highlights from the last week:

{ 1 }
Skype. I love Skype. Have I mentioned that lately? I really need to be Skype's first spokesperson. But until that happens, I just get to love on my friends from 1,500 miles away.

Showing off our accent nail polish fingers.

Twins much?

Guest Posts. I was asked by two wonderful bloggers to write guest posts, and I'm so excited! I'm flattered that they trust me to write something for their readers, and hey -- maybe I'll make some new blog friends and get closer to that 100 Reader Giveaway I promised one month ago, eh? I already planned the giveaway, and I can't wait for it!

Free Desktop Calendar by Kristen of Confessions of a Graphic Design Student. I love it, and it's so festive! Head on over to CGDS and pick your free desktop calendar!

Court Appointed Special Advocate aka CASA. I received an e-mail from a friend about her interest in being a CASA! Music to my ears! (Well, eyes, since it was an e-mail. But eyes can't hear, so... rainbows?)

Being a CASA is one of my proudest accomplishments. I mention it on my "Meet Lindsay" page, but I will soon write a post about my experience as a CASA for a child in the foster care system. It's challenging but infinitely rewarding. If any of your are curious or interested, I am always happy to talk about my experience!

Vegetarian Reuben + Cadbury Creme Egg. Mr. TBS surprised me Wednesday night with an amazing dinner! In my pre-vegetarian days, I had a deep, passionate addiction to the turkey Reuben sandwiches that he made! DEEElicious! He found a vegetarian recipe, and let me tell you -- it's borderline amazing! He also found the Cadbury Creme Egg that I had unsuccessfully been hunting in recent days.

Oh, great. Now I'm hungry.

Happy Friday, and enjoy your weekend, sweet Sapphire readers!
You are wonderful, and don't you forget it!

Happy Friday sweets. Your 100 reader giveaway will be here before we know it. Clearly, people are loving your little blog :)

I'm not sure I could live abroad without skype. And I'm sort of shocked that so many people still don't truly understand it. You should totally approach them about being a spokesperson!

Look at you go giiiirrrl :)
Can't wait to read them!

And we need to start a help group for people who don't get sleep because of their kittens. NOT KIDDING.

Going to read your About page to see more about CASA!

It may only be 7:49 AM here on the west coast, however I'd woof down that turkey sandwich in a heartbeat - looks amazing. And... the creme egg. :-)

Happy Friday girlfriend! Congrats on the guest post!

I hear you when It comes to lack of sleep because of a kitty!! Ours turns one this month and loves to meow periodically though out the night to let us know he's still here. We usually wake up in the morning with a couple of toys in bed with us.
