I am planning to post this series “Links I love” every Saturday. I was going strong for the first 5 weeks, but then missed the last two. Oops! What can I say? I got a little busy and a lot unorganized for a bit. Therefore, this week I present to you a lot, a lot of links!
Some of these things are serious, some are silly and some are both. I feel a little odd putting them all together like this. Maybe I should stop that. Read on and tell me what you think.

I have GOT to cook this Take Out Fake Out Pad Thai recipe on HelloGiggles. I’m always saying I will cook and this might be the recipe to get me to do it. Also, these banana chips on Everygoodthing look ridiculously good.
