Easter Chicks and Extra Links

I am spending a quiet day with family, watching an 80's one hit wonders video marathon and making birdie beads! Its a beautifully sunshiny day, even though it is a bit cold outside, and I am getting a bit of fresh air about every hour as I press another medallion outside. Work and play! A perfect way to spend my Easter Sunday! Here are some Extra Extra links for you this week!
