Look-worthy Links - 1/15/11 Edition

First, I have to say this: if you watched Downton Abbey based on my recommendation, I'm sorry if you saw anything that offended. Prince Charming and I did watch last Sunday and we enjoyed it, for the most part, but there was one scene we found offensive and unnecessary. So, mea culpa. I had no idea that would be in there.

Now, to this week's links:
1. My mom has a Valentine's related giveaway on her blog. There are no hoops to jump through and you can enter more than once.

2. I love egg salad, deviled eggs, etc. But I very much dislike peeling eggs. Maybe these tips will help?

3. These little notebooks are adorable. And the way my girls go through paper, maybe they'd be a good idea for us to make from all our leftover scraps. (Have you ever heard yourself say, "Do you think paper grows on trees?!"

4. Have you heard about the plastic garbage patch in the ocean the size of Texas? Well, it isn't. Don't get me wrong, I am not a fan of littering or treating our world carelessly. But I do like honesty, both intellectual and otherwise. I don't see any way to fix problems if some folks are lying about the parameters or specifics of the problem.

5. No, I don't need glitter shoes. But oh, my. Pretty. Shiny. Want.

6. Remember how Prince Charming built our girls a bunk bed, lo those many years ago when Sweet Pea was the baby? Well, now that Lili is the baby and Sweet Pea is, and I quote, "almost grown up now," we might need to be thinking about the second set. (I said "might." Nobody panic.) These, constructed from IKEA materials, might work. Let me repeat: this is a highly theoretical discussion at this point.

7. Anyone besides me feel like a treat? How about Homemade Hot Chocolate and Homemade Oreos? The only question is which to make first! (Perhaps a question about the cumulative calorie count might occur to some but I try to ignore questions like that.)

If you try the shoe thing, I have to know how it turns out. Those are so, so cute. And the little notebooks, oh my... I have a paper addiction... oh how I love cutesy papery things!

I just added your blog site to my blogroll, I pray you would give some thought to doing the same.

Did you try the egg thing? I did, and they were perfect. This might be the happiest culinary discovery to date. I don't cook much, can you tell?

My partner and I really enjoyed reading this blog post, I was just itching to know do you trade featured posts? I am always trying to find someone to make trades with and merely thought I would ask.
