Today is the first day I'm starting to feel mostly better since coming down with that yucky sickness on Sunday. I'll tell you, feeling good is welcome! I've been afraid it'd pour over into Friday and I'd feel sickly at work, but let's hope I'm on the up and up. Didn't have any time to scour the web for awesome links this week so it's a bit of a rush job this morning. Hopefully they're still just as good! Happy Thursday!

Other Awesome Things:
// First and foremost, how about a big hoorah for President Obama standing up for homosexuals?! I'm not saying you have to promote it, or even agree with it (or even like/vote for Obama!), but it's a pretty huge thing he did... I don't get political on this blog, and I won't start now, but I just want to give a huge round of applause. Thinking about my wedding in a few short months, it pains me to know that this civil right, to be tied to another in love and loyalty for life, is being denied to so many. Marriage isn't a privilege. If Britney Spears can marry her childhood for 55 hours as a drunken joke, why can't two people of the same gender pledge their love for one another and receive the same benefits as the rest of us? Off my soapbox ;)
// If you're on the hunt for a handcrafted hoodie (and a super cute one, to boot!), head on over to Mungo Crafts and give 'em a browse! For the entire month of May April is donating 3 cans of food to her local food bank for every hoodie sold! Get a sweet hoodie, support handmade, and be charitable all with one purchase!
// You've still got time to enter the Umba Box giveaway! Snag your very own 3 month subscription for free! Click here to find out how!
// I absolutely love Kaley's style and think she's just the cutest. Her blog is adorable, too. I recently bought a couple of awesome floral garland headbands from her shop and I've been having loads of fun wearing them! Maybe they'll make it into an outfit post soon!
// Foodie Finds: Hummingbird Coffee Cake (It looks and sounds DIVINE!) -- Berry Lemonade Coolers -- Personal Sized Oatmeal with Individual Toppings (Perfect if you have a bunch of picky eaters in the house!) -- Fresno Potatoes
// Two of my gal pals recently blogged about "Send Something Good" packages and I want to know more! They look so fun! You can see Megan's post here (so many Dum Dums!) and Nat's here! (She got a Polaroid camera!)
// Amber is starting a new feature called You Are Perfection and she's looking for contributors. You can read more about that here
// Moe just shared 4 Ways To Keep Life Normal in a Long Distance Relationship. Could be a great read for many!
// Instagram favorites:
and why not end it with something/someone awesome? My celeb dream man, Paul Rudd:

Edited to add: I'm a total puttz and accidentally deleted 50 comments from Thursday + Friday's post. Ugh! I didn't realize I was on the "published" page and I went to approve what I thought was 50 comments... then they were deleted. Sometimes I shouldn't be allowed on the internet.
