MM/FF/7QT - A Mash Up of Link Ups

Because I didn't get around to doing these all individually, today I give you:



So first things first.

Modest Monday/Quick Take

Yes!  After a week of 90 degrees, today is a glorious 65 and finally feels like fall!

This calls for bright yellows and oranges and greens and pinks and all the colors of the fall tress that haven't arrived yet.  And also taking pictures by the corn.

Jeans - thrifted
Shoes - Payless
Poncho - I've had forever and honestly can't remember
Tank Top - Wal-Mart
Necklace - somewhere in Arizona
Earrings - somewhere in Florida

Five Favorites/Quick Take

No, no - I deny it!  I am not a Harry Potter fan, and therefore I am not excited about the fact that J.K. Rowling is going to be writing a film series as a spin off.  No, you do not see me grinning excitedly.  Or inwardly cheering.  Nope. None of those things at all. *wink wink*

Elfspotting.  Yep. That's a thing.  At least it is now that I've come across this comic by the Peckish Owl.  Once you've read that, and come to realize the awesomeness of Elfspotting, go to the first episode of Oakentoons and read through them all. I can promise you, you will regret it if you don't!

Five Favorites/Quick Take

What is this gloriousness?  Pumpkin Spice Lattes? At McDonalds? Can I even begin to describe my excitement at this fantastic news?  Or share how much I love pumpkin spice anything and how when it's cheap it's even better?  McDonalds here I come!

Five Favorites/Quick Take

This right here.

Five Favorites/Quick Take

I absolutely love learning about temperaments and personality types.  I think I've read the book The Temperament God Gave You at least three times all the way through, and in pieces more times then that.  I've got the ins and outs of cholerics, melancholics, sanguines and phlegmatic down pretty good.  I'd seen stuff about the Myers-Briggs personalities around for a while but I could never make heads or tails of it.  Then guess what I spent the whole class learning about in Organizational Behavior!  I discovered that I am an ISFJ, and those letters all make so much more sense now.  I might have to do a post about what all the letters mean and such, just because it's so fascinating.  Want to take the test yourself?  Here ya go! 

Quick Take

When I started writing this post, I had a quick take all thought up, but of course I don't remember what it is now!  Hmmm... so... this weather huh?  I don't know what it's been like in the rest of the country, but here in the Land of the Stinking Onions we were in the upper 90s on Tuesday and it's 65 today.  Ugh.  I've had a headache since Monday and felt sickish earlier today, which I did look up and could be weather related - apparently weather fronts coming through can make you feel sick!  Did not know that.  Regardless, the colder weather is here now so I'm hoping that's the end of the headaches.

  1. I love your poncho! And am so jealous you have fall weather - it's still sunny and 90+ degrees here in Texas! Bah.

    But, oh my goodness, a Harry Potter spin off? Hm, I seem to remember someone being adamant that they didn't like Harry Potter and firmly disapproved of it... ;)

    1. *cough* Didn't you read what I said? I'm totally not a Harry Potter fan and I would not own all the books and movies if I was allowed to. ;)
