Sometimes I come across something so cute/sweet/charming/funny/pretty/inspiring/lovely that I just want to share it with you. These are the things that have made my honor roll.

    I never, ever thought I’d want a taxidermied animal :)

    I wanted to be completely horrified by the cat copter but I decided to laugh out loud instead.

    Can’t wait to share the Minecraft wedding with my 10 year old son.

    Thank you for an enjoyable foray into the weekend.

    That desk is just fantastic. What a wonderful way to add color and personality to a room!

    I hope that “You should date an illiterate girl” is pure sarcasm. It was a repulsive read! I don’t understand where you’re coming from by placing this on your Honor Roll! I always love everything you post but this is really weird.

      The whole thing reads as a love letter to the girls who DO read, the ones who have big dreams and wild ideas. It is sarcasm.

    I too always love these honor roll posts. They really make my weekend brighter! :)

    I’m curious as to how many sets you purchased of the magnetic letters? I’m assuming the sets just come with 1 letter of the alphabet …

    have you read the original “you should date…” essay from the author’s blog? i just found it today. It has a different ending, and changes the tone completely.

      I didn’t realize that wasn’t the original. Link, please? I’d love to read it.

    Hmm… after review, i’m not sure that this is “his blog” but it seems to be the first publishing of this essay. The last line of this version is different than the one that’s going around tumblr.
