Want to stay in bed longer? Here’s what I’ve been loving, laughing, and getting intrigued by all week long. Now cozy up with your laptop/iPad and enjoy :)

Please note that now that I’ve moved to the Mountain Time Zone, this post will be coming at 8:00am CT going forward instead of 8:00am ET. (I’m compromising between Eastern and Mountain with Central.) So, East Coasters, sleep an extra hour and read this at 9:00am instead :)
