My favorite animal is a sheep and my mom and I always are planning the day we can have some land and raise a flock. When I saw this article about how sheep carried cameras to help Google with it's street view on some tiny islands, I thought 'hey, this could be a new job option for me!'

Both Abby and I loved out time studying abroad and are so grateful for not only the chance to explore a new country and culture, but also the fact we wouldn't have met if we hadn't. I know we would both have loved to stay in London and Paris for longer than a semester. Check out this article on how the popularity of earning your entire college degree abroad is increasing due to the huge cost savings. 

We are headed back to Paris after New Years and we can't wait! After reading this, I'm on the hunt to try one of their public sparkling water fountains! When in France!

I've never been on a house boat but this rendition makes me want to for sure. Sweet!

I've also been on the search for sensible, warm, comfy and go with everything boots to walk around Europe in the winter! I love the way Uggs feel, but not always how they look with every outfit! I found these that lace up the back (and on sale!!) and I think they are much cuter and just as functional!

I suppose when we get older (just hit the big 3-0, ahh) the natural thing to do is to make lists and reflect on what once was. Darius Foroux gives us his 39 Things About Life I Wish I had Known 10 Years Ago. I especially love numbers 15, 38, 34, 27, 3, 18.

Austin loved his time in Portland, Oregon last summer and when I saw the tourism board of Oregon revamped the classic Oregon Trail game, it gave me several good laughs! Check it out!

We don't have kids yet, but it is so crazy how technology has advanced and allowed for self learning to take place in such fun and creative ways. This article shows some of the Best Learning Apps out their for kids. From coding to astronomy to painting, there are some really impressive choices now for parents. Move over angry birds. 

There are few foods I love more than nachos! Where has this nacho recipe generator been all my life?! Sorry Austin, we may be having nachos for dinner for the next year to get through all the options!

Laughing Out Loud to comedian Tiffany Haddish recounting her groupon swamp tour with Will and Jada Smith to Jimmy Kimmel. SO SO Funny!

When I lived and worked in New York, I worked on some sets that were actually people's homes that they leased to shows for side income! Great money maker! This article was super interesting about a family who built a house just for that purpose and now has hosted over 1,800 shows, commercials and movies! Very fascinating and a great business opportunity!

Richard Branson and Adam Grant, two incredibly intelligent and inspiring people, sit down to talk about living life to the fullest and How to Have Fun while Earning a Billion Dollars. 

This quote about productivity kind of blew my mind! I've never thought about productivity in terms of what you don't do. I guess that's what separates me from Warren Buffett! Definitely some food for thought! Now I gotta go make my "stop doing list"...

I recently discovered the NY Times How-To column and can't get enough. So many articles don't apply to me but are still informational and entertaining. Check out: How To Survive Falling Through Ice, How To Memorize Shakespeare, How to Save a Knocked-Out Tooth, How Escape a Car in Water, How to Remember your Dreams - and SO many more!
