First of all, I'm guest posting today over on Stevie's blog, so go check it out! While you're there, send her some good vibes and congratulations because she's getting MARRIED tomorrow!!!

On Saturday, I drove home from Norfolk for the very last time. Garrett had an interview on Monday, so we got to meet up and have lunch after. Honestly, that's all that's been happening in Alyssaland lately. I hope your weeks have been much more interesting!!!

Baby wigs? Oh, okay. Tumblr users get pretty deep sometimes. If you want to laugh and happy-cry, watch these kids react to the Cheerios commercial. Did you know that July is Heterosexual Awareness Month? You really cannot make this stuff up. If you're one of THOSE girls who always dates dumb dudes, here's some advice on how to stop.

Here is a GREAT article about the benefits of social media. Seriously, one of the best ones I've ever read. Lauren shared it last week, and I couldn't help but repost it here! In case you were losing faith in humanity as a whole, you should read this article about how two boys found a five year old girl who had been kidnapped. You should definitely read this really, really important article about how impossible it is to get by on minimum wage. I feel like there's a pretty common theory that poor people are just lazy - tell me how someone who works two jobs and 74 hours a week is lazy? Finally, if you want to cry, you can read about David Rakoff's final deadline. Then, go buy his book. It came out this week.

I'm hanging out with Meredith tomorrow. I'm actually home for the weekend - the WHOLE weekend. I have a fresh new batch of Passion Tea Lemonade in the fridge. Stevie gets married tomorrow. I have my first official, real blog sponsor. I finally passed 200 Twitter followers! And oh yeah - GARRETT GOT A NEW JOB! Things are happening, my friends.

Finally, check out this month's sponsor, Chelsea! She has two adorable bulldogs and loves drinking boxed wine, so naturally, she fits right in over here!! Go over and say hi!

Love this layout for a Friday post.

It is my firm belief that you cannot live a sustainable life on minimum wage.

Agreed on that story about the two boys. It's the best. Have a great weekend!

i saw that somewhere too on the internet this week, baby wigs, i was like really? your baby isn't self conscious about not having hair in fact they don't even notice, the wigs are only for the parents who care too much about what other people think. have a great weekend!
