Friday Distractions -- Random Links & Recipes Bookmarked

Ready for the weekend? To help you pass your Friday here are the highlights of what distracted me this week online, what I bookmarked that I hope to one day eat, and a picture.  

"To be clear, having more goldfish (or more gold) doesn’t decrease our happiness — those first few crackers may provide a genuine burst of delight. But rather than focusing on how much we’ve got in our bowl, we should think more carefully about what we do with what we’ve got — which might mean indulging less, and may even mean giving others the opportunity to indulge instead" from Don't Indulge. Be Happy. (via Marie)

Fashion News 1928. 2:15 is likely my favorite, though the last one is pretty great too! You can't beat an airplane as a photo prop.

"The care and love that went into that pie has become emblematic of how I approach life, and people in particular. It is the touch that says, 'I took the time to do it to the best of my ability because you matter to me.' It is the antithesis of the quick-fix solutions that have become so fashionable in today's world where it is all about volume and speed." A Second Helping Of Pie Week: How Pumpkin Pie Turned My Life Around 

"What did you do with the hair?" "I hid it under the radiator." Five-Year-Old Gives Her Sister Terrible Haircut Because It Was 'Really Itching Her Hips' (via Carielle)

The Chap Olympiad looks amazing. My favorite event from the looks of things would be a toss up between Umbrella Jousting and Ironing Board Surfing. (via Elliot)
