Old friend and wht member Bronwen has made us quite proud! You may recall that she and her husband are the proprietors of foodie haven the Spice Station. This month you can see ‘B’ as she’s known our houses, in the pages of O, the Oprah Magazine!

Our Photo of the Week is from the July 2011 issue of this inspiring magazine, where you’ll find Bronwen looking amazing in the Spice Station courtyard, the subject of “the Leap” feature. Way to go B!

And we can’t ignore one of the wht mascots, Ted the Boston Terrier. This always ready for love doggie (just keep away from the cosmetics!) stars in his very own comic caper over at Makeup and Beauty Blog. Thanks Karen! 9 Things: Simple Pleasures

And for every puppy link, Giles insists I add one for cats. My favorite internet find of the week, How to pet a Kitty, had me giggling at my desk. The Oatmeal include sage advice like to never turn down a cat belly rub as “It has been said that petting the tummy of a kitty is like frolicking in the back hair of an angel.

A quick and ingenious idea from Lifehacker I had to share! Protect your counters when using flat irons and curling irons in colorful style with silicone-potholders

Finally, one more summer fave, S’mores, gets a twist with this yummy cupcake recipe seen over at wht writer’s site the wicked noodle. Don’t worry vegetarians, the recipe calls for marshmallow creme which does not contain gelatin. S’mores Cupcake Recipe

And how was your week readers? Share your moments big and small in the comments!

Tyna, co-founder and co-editor of wht, worries about becoming a crazy cat lady, reads at least a book a week, checks in at a Flyers fan forum every morning and is forever (some say obsessively) organizing her closets and drawers.

    My week has been going pretty well. Went to a brewery and a dessert place for “date night” tonight with my BF and had a great time. Also this week, got tons of great stuff in the mail! Giveaway prizes, soap making supplies… I was pretty stoked :)

    And I’m loving this week’s roundup! Using the silicone potholders is a a great idea for protecting counters (I’m pretty sure I have that exact same red silicone nubbed potholder!) and those s’mores cupcakes look AMAZING.

    Yay for Bronwen!! What a big deal!! Congratulations!

    My week was ok. Nothing big. I am just busy preparing to start a new graduate school program in the Fall. So keeping busy with that stuff.

    This weekend it will be dog time, husband time, farmer’s market time, and I will see Horrible Bosses.

    I almost forgot we did celebrate my husband’s 34th birthday this week. And this coming Monday is our 13th wedding anniversary!!! Yay!!!!! So maybe it has been a busy week after all.
