Midweek Roundup


Happy Wednesday, folks! Woo-hoo!–the temperature is finally cooler! I actually slept with a blanket last night (insert the Hallelujah chorus). In other news, Election Day is coming up (November 4), and we’re halfway through the second week of early voting. I voted last week and for the first time EVER, I got pounced. The moment I stepped out of my car, a concerned parent of the independent school district immediately told me why she thinks it’s a good idea to vote for the school bond (sure, because she has a kid who’s in that school district). After she was done talking, a college student (had to be early, early 20s) explained to me the logical reason why it would be disastrous to vote for the school bond. And while this young kid was talking, a parent (not the one who first spoke to me) from the other side of the parking lot starts hollering over the young kid’s speech with words of “he’s lying!”, “they’re paying him to say that!”, “that’s not true!”. It was a circus. I don’t even live in that school district. But I didn’t tell them that.

All righty then! Time for this week’s roundups…from my inbox to your desktop (or phone).

Oh looky!…

Espresso maker for your car – This gives a whole new meaning to taking your coffee with you wherever you go.

Pocket-sized amplification device – Portable speakers that fit in the pocket of your jeans. Take your amp with you wherever you go. 

Smokeless fireplace for your desk – OMG. Take your fireplace wherever you go.

Hilarious (unspoken + unofficial) slogans for famous brands – You know you’ve thought of these, too.

Inspiring design quotes – For the times when you’re burnt and on the verge of not giving a damn.

Sofa Soiree 

(for that night you get to lounge on the sofa and indulge in some me time)

Undulate your vocal cords and re-enjoy Pitch Perfect.


A BLT soup might not sound genius–nope, it sounds disgusting (seriously, you want to liquify lettuce?). BUT…a classy tomato soup with smokey bacon sounds like a rock star. Paired with grilled cheese and it’s The Beatles kind of epic.

What lovely or interesting finds did you discover this week?

  1. Espresso maker for your car…. Heck yeah. 🙂 Adding that to my Christmas list. Haha, and the smokeless fireplace for the desk, its a bit warm now, but would have been amazing this winter just gone, Soooo cold. Love the creamy tom soup, prob because of the bacon. Haha! Love the roundups, such a great way to share your week. xox

    • Lol! Thank you, my friend. The soup was super duper wonderful. It lasted as long as our cold spell did. Today was a warm day…shorts and t-shirts kind of day. Tomorrow is going to be scarves and thick jackets kind of weather. Craziness. May glorious sunshine smile upon you always. 🙂 xo
