Around the Web Spring Break Edition

If you follow me on Instagram, you may notice that I am spending a few days in California with my best friends.  We're on spring break and I needed a break in a bad way so I am enjoying some beach best friend therapy.  It is everything you imagine it to be.  Maybe the answer to all of life's problems is to live near a beach?

While here, however, my computer totally crapped out.  It's been on its last legs for several months now- I have to jam a metal stick in it to get it to turn on- but apparently the journey to California was really the last straw.  So now I'm hijacking my friend's computer and saying silent prayers that my computer will magically turn on the next time I try.  It won't, but I'm allowed to think whatever I want.

Because of my injured computer, I have no pictures to share with you.  Next time, friends.  You'll forgive me, won't you.

And now, while I take naps on the beach, I share with you the best things I've been reading on the web lately.

Around the Web

+ Soaking it up on the beach the past couple of days has made me realize that I am in desperate need of a new swimsuit that fits.  (Hello nursing boobs!)  I LOVE this post for highlighting the best modest and affordable (Under $40!) swimsuits.  I might just have to buy the navy polka dot one piece.

+Speaking of nursing, for all your breast feeding moms (or soon to be breastfeeding), Sonya is doing an awesome giveaway right now for milkies milk savers and milkies freeze. (Basically a way to save and store your milk.)  There aren't many entries meaning your chances of winning are so much higher!

+ I got sucked into this quiz after a friend posted it on facebook.  What color is your soul?  I'm orange.  I could have guessed that.

+I work with some very talented, thoughtful, and hard working people.  My co-worker, Stephanie, posted this essay earlier in the week about responding to disagreements/ arguments on facebook.  It has made me think so much about my discourses online and how I respond to people with whom I disagree.  Her opening point is a zinger,  "A conversation is not a selfie. There are more reasons to talk to someone beyond "winning" or making someone think like you. It's incredibly narcissistic to believe that a conversation only has worth if the other person leaves with a matching brain."
