Linky Interwebby Awesomeness 11.30.09

So apparently I’ve adopted the same philosophy with daily links that I have with podcasts: once or twice a quarter will work just fine, thank you.

And for the record, the problem with the podcasts is entirely my fault. It takes me a sweet forever to edit them, and if anything happens during the editing process – something with work, something on TV, some people who want to be fed – I get completely distracted and don’t get back to the editing until weeks later. And suddenly it’s mid-November and I’m trying to string together a podcast about our pre-season football predictions.

I never claimed that time management was my strong suit, people.

Anyway, here are some links that are somewhat timely. However, if you prefer, feel free to mimic my podcasting pattern and wait a couple of months before you click on the links. That way they’ll be good and irrelevant.

– Right now you can get a one-year subscription to Southern Living or Real Simple (along with some other great magazines) for only $5 at Amazon.

Sara Groves’ new CD is also just $5, and it is DREAMY. I’m sort of annoyingly obsessed with it, frankly.

– If you’re a fan of SEC sports (AND WHY WOULDN’T YOU BE), the (free!) SEC Digital Network is a treasure. Even though it’s entirely possible that they’ll be sending me a bandwidth bill for my excessive re-watching of the 3rd quarter of the State/Ole Miss game.

– Rhoda has a great idea for Christmas centerpieces with floating candles – so simple, affordable and beautiful.

– Nester’s post about using what you have to decorate for Christmas totally inspired me.

– And finally – speaking of Nester – don’t forget this:

Christmas Tour of Homes with The Nester

Remember: there won’t be a Christmas Tour here this year. We’re touring at Nester’s instead. And it’s gonna be delightful.

Happy last day of November, y’all!

  1. Couldn’t wait for five months because music recommendations from BooMama = delightful music everytime. Sara is downloading as I type! I was over there earlier nosing around for new tunes! Muchas gracias!

  2. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Sara Groves!! Saw her perform at MOPS convention twice, and have also seen her a couple other times – got to meet her last month! She only lives about 20 minutes from me. What a real and down to earth inspiration!

  3. Elizabeth says:

    So I just saved someone the trouble (and expense) of getting me a Real Simple subscription for Christmas. Thanks for passing along the deal!

  4. Thank you! I just ordered my $5 subscription to Southern Living. Merry Christmas to me!

  5. Thanks so much for the tip on the Real Simple magazine, just ordered it for myself for Christmas!

  6. I think Southern Living and I are about to make up. Guess I’ll re-up my subscription. Thanks for the tip. (Happy December!)

  7. Five dollars – Sara Groves!! Thanks for the tip!

  8. Ooo-lala!! What a savings on Real Simple! Thanks for the tip!

  9. I had no idea that the SEC Digital Network existed. My seven year old thanks you from the bottom of his heart and he watched the third quarter once or twice tonight!

  10. Bummer. I was so excited about the $5 magazine subscriptions that I decided to get all of my college girlfriends a subsciption to be presented at our annual-matching-pajama-wearing-Christmas-celebrating-slumber-party. But, I was disappointed to find out you can only purchase ONE subscription to each magazine. BUMMER! Oh, I said that already. So, my joy has turned to sorrow.

  11. So. You HAD to link to that CD on Amazon, huh?! lol — it sounds so whimsically-bluegrassy-grassrootsy. Love it. I’m adding it to my Christmas list. It’s exactly the right price, too!

  12. Came to check when the Tour was this year. How fabulous that The Nester will be hosting. BUT you are a WONDERFUL hostess!!!!

    We will join in again this year for sure. :)
