So maybe I wasn’t able to quit Facebook entirely, but I am going to give this little experiment a try: see what happens when you stop liking things on Facebook? So far I’m enjoying leaving comments on friends’ posts where before I would have just hit “Like” – usually the person writes back, and it actually feels like I’m connecting, not just waving as we pass each other driving in opposite directions. Have you tried this? Did it change your Facebook experience?

So… I thought I’d see how things went if I deleted the Facebook app from my phone. You guys, I lasted less than 24 hours. That is pitiful. PITIFUL. Please, tell me it’s not just me. And if you’ve figured out how to break the Facebook habit, tell me your secret!

I’ve been lucky to have my sister in town for the past two weeks, and since she’s leaving Sunday (nooooo!) I’ll be making the most of these last couple days with her here. And by “making the most of it,” I mean, “convincing her to bake some delicious treats for us.” The girl is a baking whiz (she has a dessert food truck after all), and she’s always got some yummy recipes up her sleeve. So, happy weekend for me! And some weekend links for you!
