Link Love, vol. 12

via  Instagram

With the arrival of spring comes a desire to update my wardrobe. I haven’t been shopping too much, but I did place an order at Madewell during their Insiders Event a couple of weeks ago and recently picked up a couple of new pairs of earrings from ABLE. I finally made my first purchase after admiring the brand from afar for quite some time. I purchased the Iris hoops in pearl and the hammered circle earrings. I love my new earrings! Both pairs are extremely lightweight (I forget I’m wearing them) and perfectly simple and understated enough to go with any outfit. Love, love! Now onto the links…

  • The recent crash of a second brand new Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane in only a few months has sparked questions about how the flight control system was approved in the first place.

  • Ladies, I know you know what a Twitter Reply Guy is. Guys, don’t be this guy. Did you know there are nine types of Twitter Reply Guy? I have an Instagram Reply Guy, which is also super fun…

  • Alaska and northwest Canada have been smashing their all-time record high temperatures recently. 60 and 70 degrees in the Northwest Territories at this time of year is virtually unheard of! It just barely hit 60 degrees here in Boise and we have yet to hit 70 so far this year.

  • Meanwhile, after the “bomb cyclone” tore through the central U.S. and dropped an incredible amount of snow and rain, the Midwest is experiencing devastating flooding…and things look to only get worse as spring rolls on.

  • Emma of A Beautiful Mess shared her experience tidying kitchen utensils. I’ve yet to tidy much of anything in my house, but I know this is an area that needs some work. We have a lot of utensils and gadgets! I always assume that something is going to get used eventually and then it ends up not happening.

  • This xkcd comic made me laugh, mostly because it’s true. My dad is always complaining about video orientation haha!

  • I am obsessed with Maren Morris’s recently-released studio album, Girl. My favorite song is Great Ones—it describes my life exactly!

  • What’s currently in my Target cart: a small milk crate wire basket to organize the shelf on my nightstand, a couple of letter stacking trays to corral our mail, a plastic bin to hold dirty kitchen towels, and a few artificial plants to spruce up a high shelf in our master bathroom: rosemary, grass, succulent, and sedum.
