Friday Things and Elsewhere on the Internets

I've got a fuzzy head today; I think I'm picking up a nice little cold that my daughter had this week, so I thought I'd share a couple of my favorite places to hang out on the internet.  Specifically, two non-running blogs.  (For great running blogs, click on the Oiselle Team Blogroll tab above or check out some of these awesome local ladies.) 

I started reading Ashley Ann's blog, Under the Sycamore, over two years ago after coming across her cool bird canvas craft project.  As I delved deeper into her blog full of crafty fun (stuff I'll probably never make, but it's so awesome - someone make THIS for my girl!), I just kinda fell in love with her and her family.  I could really identify with her raucous and sweet Star Wars obsessed boys and spitfire little girl.  I followed along as that little girl landed in traction in the hospital (she's just fine and back to her spitfire ways) and followed her amazing journey of adopting a beautiful little girl from China.  This post, just man..  I cried off and on all day when she finally held that baby.  It's an amazing, yet everyday story.  She's just a bright light of goodness on the internet.  I wish she was on Twitter...

Speaking of Twitter, if you follow me there, I've already re-tweeted some of Elizabeth's posts (like this one) from her blog, Princess Nebraska.  Not only is her blog where I go to feel less alone as a parent (she also has a boy and a girl the same ages as mine, that seem to delight and frustrate her in the same ways mine do) but I also love to read her spot-on book reviews/recommendations, as well as troll her weekly super cute outfit ideas.  She's the kind of girl I'd love to sit and drink with (or run with!) - a goal of mine is to attend The Blathering one day...

OK, hopefully my head cold will clear a bit so that I can get in my 7 miler tomorrow, it got pushed back because of the sick kiddo.  Blergh.  At least it looks like we're going to keep this amazing Seattle weather - 50s and sunny!  And I'll be adding this to my playlist:
