The Ultimate Rabbit Hole #122

The Ultimate Rabbit Hole 68

Hello bunny holers! Are you as pleased as me to say hello to the weekend? What with the short working week and a (temporary) return to work, I am all at sixes and fours and have never been as happy to welcome the weekend and hop on down the rabbit hole. Let’s get lost in lovely links, shall we?

Tomorrow is National Cherry Pie Day which sounds a very cherry delicious affair if you ask me! I’m loving the look of this Easy Crumble Cherry Piethese super cute Mini Cherry Pies and these Cherry Cream Cheese Hand Pies. I don’t need any encouragement though, I’m already cherry obsessed! Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, Exhibit A, my Brown Sugar Cherry PieExhibit B, my Baked Cherry Cheesecake and Exhibit C, my Baked Cherry and Ricotta Cheesecake. So much yum!

The countdown to our holiday is on as we’ve moved from triple digits to double digits. Squee! But I’ll still have plenty of time to practise and try out these tips to take my travel photography to the next level. I wonder if I’ll ever get off auto in this lifetime! Still on the subject of photography, these tips on how to get the perfect Run Disney bling shot are the stuff my RunDisney-Instagram dreams are made of.

These 30 ways to simplify your life really appeal to the inner wannabe minimalist in me. When it comes to minimalism, ironing is one thing I would definitely love to minimise! I never knew you could iron clothes with your hairdryer! Did you?!

Do you think a positive outlook is overrated? My brain is a big, busy mess, but somehow this blog post unravelled my most complicated thoughts and articulated them oh, so neatly. Don’t miss the three awesome tips for overcoming a negative mindset.

There was so much that tickled my fancy down the rabbit hole last week. I learned a lot about drowning from Lydia’s post – you only have a minute. I hope I never need to use that information, but what I know now, could save someone’s life in the future. I am totally on board with Katherine’s idea of celebrating an un-birthday, where you get all jolly about your birth at the 6 month as well as the full year mark. We already celebrate Christmas (and both our birthdays)  in July so what harm would it do to celebrate un-birthdays in January?! Last but not least, Lauren’s Lemon and Coconut Balls look amazeballs, as does everything she makes!

I can’t sign off without a good dog story and this one looks good and feels good! Did you hear about the artist who spent a year painting portraits of 100 shelter dogs to encourage others to adopt a pet? Now that is one exhibition I would have loved to have seen!

Sleeping and running (but not at the same time) are high on my weekend agenda, how about you? Are you a cherry lover too? Are you mindful or mind full? Are you on Team Iron? Tell me all the things!

Every Saturday morning, we will open up the rabbit hole link up for bloggers to add their link list posts or even just their favourite post (if you are not of the link list kind) for the week. Please link only one post. This makes it fair for everyone and allows more posts to be read. Talking of reading, do try and pop along to say howdee to some of  the other lovely linkers and my awesome co-hosts. This week, you can link up here or bob on over and say hello to Paula at  The Geeky ShopaholicJess at Confident Life and Shari at Good Food WeekIt doesn’t matter where you add your link because it will appear on all four blogs, as if by magic!  The link up will stay open until midnight the following Monday.

  • Helloooo lovely….I do love a holiday countdown, it’s all about the anticipation. Have you tried “Flight Legs Up”, just saying, because we have been doing some flying lately and they rock.
    I hear you with the mind full, but I’m so trying to be mindful.
    And…
    That art exhibition just melts my heart!

    We are waiting to hear if soccer is a go here, because it’s raining, again!
    Then we are off to an 80″s party tonight as Billy Idol and Dolly Parton,
    have a good weekend lovely. x

    • I’ve been thinking of you and been meaning to message you because I missed you so but couldn’t connect my thoughts to the keyboard! So lovely to see you back! Hope you have tons of fun at the party – the eighties really were the greaties!

      • Thanks lovely, will do, I’ll have a toast for you tonight, I’ve missed you too x

    Cheers for the shout out – I’m hoping it helps someone somewhere. Was just amazed that when I witnessed someone drowning, how it took me so long to figure out if they needed help. Hoping to save someone those minutes….

  • Awww, thanks for the shout out. I hope you have a spectacular birthday and unbirthday as well! I visited the dentist (for the sixth time in a year) the other day and was told no more cherries for me 🙁 So I’ll have to live vicariously through you on that one!

    • That must be an expensive visit to make in the states. Why no cherries? Rest assured, I’ll be eating your share! I went to the dentist too the other day, it must be the season for it! Happy Weekend!

    Mmmmm cherry pie! Off to look at that simplifying life post, always interested in this 🙂 Happy weekend xx

    • I can’t enough of those simplifying posts. Soon I will have to start minimising what I’m reading about minimising! Hope you had a great weekend x

  • Happy weekend linkers!!

  • Double digits till Disney…go you….and hub! I’ve linked up a post from a recent linky which is all about how we learn. Knowing your education background and love of learning I think it will be of interest too. Happy Weekend. Not a long one though. D xx

  • Anything that makes it easier for ironing is a win in my books! I favour clothes I don’t have to iron, my most hated of all housework haha!

    The shelter dog painting exhibition is awesome – I heard about it as the shelter, AWLQ, is the one we adopted Cooper from. He’s not in the paintings as we’ve had him a while, but we support them where we can 🙂

    Thanks for the link up!

    • I wish we lived nearer, I love the AWLQ’s work! He’d be famously furry if he was in one of those paintings! Hope you had a great weekend x

  • I didn’t even know it was National Cherry Pie day, but I baked a cherry strudel any way. I suppose that still counts 🙂

  • Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I’m going to try ironing with a hair dryer once just to see if it works!

    Thanks for sharing awesome links here Sammie. Spent my Sunday at a water park with Family. I agree “All the worries go down with water” . No social media( for blogging) over the weekend is my way to unplug.
