Friday Link-up

Happy Friday! I finally was able to capture Neil’s elusive muscle-up at CrossFit the other day. It was his third one of the day! This week was really busy and I’m so happy it’s finally the weekend. We’re headed to Kansas City to watch CONCACAF Olympic qualifier final. That’s soccer if you’re like me and had absolutely zero idea what it was. I’m just excited for a few new restaurants and hopefully some Jeni’s for my cheat snack if I can find it. Here are a few of the awesome reads I’ve come across over the past two weeks:

    I’d love to see those Iran photos BEFORE they had been through post production and ‘cleaned up’.

      True, but aside from finishing, the landscape as I see it would be like several of our best states’ features combined. If only things weren’t as they were.
