Sunday Stuff

Posted July 20, 2014 by Stephanie

Do you think the week starts or ends on Sunday? I’ve always considered Sunday the beginning of the week, but a lot of people (including Mike) argue that it’s the end of the week. I guess there’s something to both sides of the argument. Regardless, it’s Sunday so I thought I’d do a little recap of what I’ve been up to.

I had a pretty excellent week! My advance copy of Easy Gourmet came in the mail! I wasn’t expecting it and when I saw the package my jaw dropped. It was even more unbelievable holding it in my hands than I imagined. I have to admit, I teared up a bit. If you haven’t yet, you can preorder Easy Gourmet here: AmazonBarnes and NobleBooks-A-Million and Indie BoundPreorders are extremely helpful in the book world, I’ve discovered.

Other things I’ve been up to this week:

1. I found this corgi cookie cutter when I was googling “corgi sleeping positions.” Corgi cookies here I come!
2. Yay or nay for Spam? This article on spam is fascinating.
3. How to avoid the comparison game.
4. J. Crew’s new XXXS sizes.
5. These guys are too cute. I’d totally eat them.
6. Now that’s what I call a picnic blanket!
7. Even burgers need a little help before a sexy photo shoot. Via Shutterbean.
8. Buttermilk onion rings and BBQ chicken nachos! I could eat these for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
9. The weekend isn’t a weekend without cake, so good thing there are so many gorgeous ones out there this week!

PS – Don’t forget to enter my first ever giveaway if you haven’t yet! Hope you had a lovely week and cheers to a the start of a new one! xoxo

    The book is beautiful! Can’t wait for its release day!

    I think Sundays are the end of the week too, though I like my calendars to start with Sundays. My calendars at work start with Monday and it throws me off!

    Dude, I love this round-up so much. (But not as much as I love that life-making shot of you holding your book — SO EXCITED!!!!) That J.Crew article is so interesting, and so is the Spam one! True fact, I’m terrified of the Spam hate out there because I don’t know what I would do with my life if the haters shut it down and they stopped making it. O_O Terror.

    YAY for Spam! And corgi cookie cutters — gimme! I really want to visit that picnic blanket, too. Gosh — that photo of you holding up your book is so epic. I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU! You did it! And it’s going to be amazing!

  7. Sunday is the first day of the week here in the UAE. Friday Saturday weekend :) Book looking good.
