This is a post I did for another blog I contribute to: http://www.becominglovely.com/2013/06/friday-links.html. We like to put up a fun link post on Fridays, and mine went up last week.

Happy Friday everyone! Welcome to the end of a long week and the beginning of an awesome weekend!
If you need a date this weekend but don't have a lot of money, hopefully
you can find a little love at your local library. Tell your librarians
they need to do this. Or start your own little library! Share the love of books and reading with those around you.
Looking for the perfect name for your little ones, or writing a novel and need the best name for your characters? Ask the Baby Name Genie!
Type in the last name, pick the gender or leave it a surprise, and make
sure you block out some time because you'll keep clicking through name
Need to keep yourself or some kiddies occupied while you're getting an
oil change? Create your own word searches, cross words, cryptograms,
mazes, and more with the puzzlemaker. You could make a lot of these and then bind them together to make your own puzzle books.
Still in a creative mood? Try Wordle!
Type in your favorite words, or someone's name and things about them,
or whatever you'd like. Then style it up with colors and fonts. This
would make a fun present or wall hanging. Hint- the more you type in a
word, the bigger the word will be.
Madeleine L'Engle. Remember reading A Wrinkle in Time in
elementary school? Yup, that's Madeleine L'Engle. She wrote fiction,
nonfiction, childrens, teen, and adult books, and auto-biographies.
You know all those times you had such good intentions and bought tons of
fruit and veggies and then two weeks later you found bags of moldy
squishy goop in your fridge? Well, your problems are all solved now! You
can cut out these produce pictures
or draw your own, then stick magnets on the back. After you go grocery
shopping, put up a magnet of the fruit and veggies you bought, then
you'll have a nice reminder of what's in the fridge!
And lastly, if you just need a big kick in the butt to get you motivated, here are 6 Harsh Truths That Will Make You a Better Person. PS- this article is not for the sensitive soul.
