Weekly Roundup

July 10, 2020

J.McLaughlin I wit & whimsy

This week was crazy. I was extremely busy after taking time off last week and had momentum on both of my businesses to tend to, a busy week of apartment searching and just all around it felt like my head might spin off at any point. Frazzled is the word that comes to mind. I didn’t get much sleep, was fighting bad headaches and my anxiety was in over drive…Needless to say I am glad to have the weekend arrive!

I wanted to take a minute to say a quick thank you as – in assessing my last quarter analytics – I was thrilled to discover that last quarter set a new record for the most visits to wit & whimsy ever. That means the past 3 months were the highest trafficked since I started this blog all the way back in 2006. It has been a really uphill battle the past few months to create and reinvent myself and to see that you guys are in support of those efforts – I am just so happy and so humbled. Thank youThank you!

I hope you enjoy this week’s roundup and have a great weekend!


  • I was blown away by the response of my custom stationery collaboration with The Illustrated Life! Thank you again for the amazing support!
  • Had the kickoff call for a very exciting year-long collaboration that I cannot wait to share with you guys! It’s related to a topic that is very close to my heart.
  • I cooked fish for the first time! I know, I know – I’ve just always been too intimidated to do it before. Friends recommended this recipe and it was delicious and so easy.  I swapped the salmon for halibut though (I don’t like salmon!)
  • Call me an audiobook convert. I have been loving my Libro.fm membership. I am making headway on a thriller called The Guest List. If you use this link to sign up and you’ll get 2 audiobooks for the price of 1 when you sign up for a membership that you can cancel at any time. Related: everything I’ve read in quarantine so far.

    Happy Friday! Glad you have a relaxing weekend ahead after that week. I have been loving your blog for years, but especially during quarantine – so I’m glad you are seeing the traffic! Your content has been so lovely and I come back every day to see what is happening in this corner of the internet.

    Placed my order for the notecards, they are seriously the cutest! Also I have those Target PJs and they are AMAZING – I bought them in like 3 colors! They hold up pretty well too, I’ve had mine for years. I need to try that sundried pesto! We moved and I found LOTS of random things in our pantry and I’m pretty sure we have sundried tomatoes, LOL
