Things I Love Thursday



I'll be honest... I'm getting a little fed up with Blogger. I may have jinxed myself a few weeks ago when someone asked if I liked the Blogger platform and if it ever gave me problems. I raved about how easy to use it was and said nope, no problems ever! Then twice in the past 6 days it's gone awry. I couldn't sign in for 17 hours yestreday/last night. Finally I cleared my cache/cookies/history and it freed up some. C'mon Blogger... get it together! Until then I'm researching the migration to WordPress or TypePad. Even still I probably couldn't get around to it for a few weeks with my schedule. Anyway, let's look at lovely things, shall we?!

PS; In case you're new around these parts, I always source the image under "this" in the caption if I know where the original came from! Unfortunately thanks to sites like Tumblr and WeHeartIt, it's often times impossible to know the origin of pieces. Don't hesitate to share the source of the original creator in the comments below! I'll definitely edit to give credit!

  4. Pretty pictures! And I am SO fed up with Blogger too! I'm thinking about switching to another hosting site as well. Grr!!

  5. That little pug makes me want a puppy so badly! He's too cute! (boyfriend thinks they are ugliest dogs evah but I disagree).

    The blogger platform is being mean to me, too! It has, twice since that melt down, for several days at a time hid my website from my followers!

  6. I love that infographic. Absolutely right!

    I definitely encourage you to self-host on wordpress. I switched from blogger, was able to keep all my google followers and now I can customize everything. You can import all your entries and comments from blogger, too!

  7. Love it! Thinking positive is something we can all benefit from, I'm also trying to follow it and realise how ace my life really is when I look past the periphery. And pics of dogs in sunglasses definitely help too... ;-)

  8. I loooooovvveee Phoebe!!! Friends is one of my favourite shows - I've seen each episode at least 10 times (from watching the complete series set thing) and they never cease to make me laugh. Oh, and I love the newspaper pic, that's just so sweet :)

    Btw - I'm on Wordpress, and I moved there from Blogger. I like the freedom you have with Blogger layouts, but I was unhappy with so many other things. I also like the stats WP provides, even though sometimes they're not quite so accurate. Still. If you have questions on how things run with WP versus how you're used to them with Blogger, feel free to ask!

  9. I'd love to see you with a blue wig! You'd look absolutely stunning with it for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Love the good parenting pics, wish those thoughts would be more widespread!

    I like blogger, if it gives me too much trouble, I might consider switching in the future, but for right now, I haven't really had too many problems with it.

    Is it weird that I totally want to hold a moth like that? I love going into butterfly/moth gardens at museums and getting covered in them =].

  11. Hahahah Phoebe is the best, she's hilarious. Lovely advice from the dad and great job by the mum out there.

  12. I really liked that first example of good parenting... wow.

    ReplyDelete
  13. ew ew ew ew ew! I'd definitely freak out if I saw that ginormous freaking moth. Just looking at it gives me the creeps. But, I love the dad explaining 'holding hands'.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Isn't that a frenchie? Pug ears are folt over Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  15. If you ever want help with self-hosted WordPress, I'd be happy to lend a hand! :)

    I think that's a French Bulldog, not a Pug (judging by the ears) ... but SUPER cute nonetheless.

  16. I'm getting annoyed with blogger too, I can't comment on any blogs that don't have the separate comment form, grr!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I honestly always look forward to Thursdays just for your posts <3

  19. if you eventually do move to wordpress, i'd love to hear how you did it because i'm considering moving too but i'm scared to do it alone lol

    ReplyDelete
  20. Phoebes! She's so great :) If you switch to Wordpress, let me know how it goes. I'm setting one up when I get my website launched...I'm super nervous about it. I'm wondering how difficult it will be to import all my blogger posts to it. Eep!

    ReplyDelete
  21. All these are so amazing, but especially the pug picture, and the one of Justin Timberlake (goodness that brings me back to my junior high school years).

    This post put a huge smile on my face!

  22. I had the same issue with blogger yesterday. Hopefully it is just a little leftover from the "update" meltdown from a few weeks ago and things will go back to perfectly wonderful soon.

  23. Amazing post! I especially love the newspaper extract

    ReplyDelete
  24. Just wanted to let you know your good parenting pictures melt my heart. It's really refreshing to see someone value and express equality for everyone. <3

  25. Oh my gosh...my sister use to have that pic of JT above her bed:)!! She wouldn't even let us touch her NSYNC pics...So that is exactly what we'd do when we got mad at her. Stand there with our finger on his face:). Ah, the good old days;)

    great finds:)

  26. Oh my goodness! If I ever come across a moth that size, I think I will die. I'm so scared of the tiniest little moths!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I agree, I've been having blogger problems! Grrr, it's so frustrating.

    Love the JT poster, so cute/hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  28. First off ...that JT picture cracks me up. Oh boy bands. Second, that moth...holy fricken moth!

    Much Love,

  32. The examples of good parenting just make me smile. I picked my four year old sister up from school the other day, and she told me matter of factly that girls can marry boys, and boys can marry boys, and girls can marry girls. I could not stop smiling. It's so great that she's able to grow up in a world where all love is the norm. Great post!

  35. I'm going to throw my vote for wordpress into the pile! I've used blogger and typepad but overall I'm the happiest with wordpress. It's so easy to use and there is a huge knowledge base so it's easy to figure it out if you get stuck!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've seen an Atlas moth before! Not in Asia, though -- at a butterfly house in South Dakota.

    Love those examples of good parenting. <3

  39. The dolls' hair makes me so happy! I've always wanted that real light pink hair colour but alas my hair is so crazy dark that to achieve it would be a major mission! Have you seen the model's hair on the cover of an Australian mag called Yen this month? It's that light pink: http://www.yenmag.net/on-sale-now/ ...thought you might appreciate it! :)
