Tomorrow is the big day for my first ever link party and you all are invited.
For those that missed the big announcement, just drop back by here tomorrow with a Favorite Find from the week. It can be anything! You get to decide what makes it your favorite. A delicious recipe? Incredible book? New organization system? The possibilities are endless. Seriously.
Need a little preview?
This past weekend, Tess was invited to a birthday party. Being the technologically savvy girl that she is, she decided to use Google Maps to get directions to her friend’s house. And being the creative kid that she is, she decided to follow the “street view” from our house to where the party was.
Then I heard, “Hey Mom… Do you know there’s a photo of you on Google Maps?”
Sure enough… it looks like Google Maps caught us driving down the street.
Now the photos are too grainy to tell who is driving or in the passenger seat. The license plates are blurred out and in all honesty, I can’t verify if this is truly our car. But it’s less than a quarter mile from our home and has the same specialty wheels that ours has, so yeah… it’s probably us.
How crazy is that?! And a little too 1984 for me. I’ve always contended that George Orwell would be blown away by today’s culture of status updates and “look what I’m eating” photos. (Says the girl sharing herself on a web journal.) But getting yourself captured on the internet without your knowledge is… unnerving. It’s safe to say that this is my weirdest find. But not my favorite. You have to come back for that.
So let me hear about your Favorite Find of the week. The party is tomorrow and I can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to. If you’ve never been involved in a link party, that’s okay too. Just come back ready to share a link to your favorite find. I’ll have a space all set-up for you to share it. Then tell all your family and friends where the party is at. I’ll be partnering with Victoria and Karen to share in all the Favorite Find love. It’s a great time to meet some new bloggers and see some interesting things.
Have you discovered anything truly weird this week? Have you been searching high and low for something amazing to share at the party? Do you have so many Favorite Finds that you don’t know how you are going to choose just one? No? Well, come to the party anyway. There’s nothing sadder than a woman sitting around alone waiting for her friends to show up to her party. Don’t let me be that woman.
