Friday Finds

I hope everyone has had a lovely week.  It was crazy busy around here, and my first attempt to post 3x in one week.  Hopefully I can keep it up.  The picture above is an old church turned into a Visitors Centre in the middle of Dublin. As the church-going population shrinks, the churches are being converted to other uses. Apparently this one was also slated to become a disco at some point in the past!

Here are a few links from around the internet this week:

I’m sure you have read about the comments Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft made about women asking for a raise. At a conference for women in technology!

Related, I found this article from Forbes about why women leave tech to be very interesting.  Perhaps Mr. Nadella should read it too.

My kids are experts at finding playgrounds while we’re traveling.  I’m just thankful that we haven’t found one of these!

I am NOT a crafty mom – at all, but living in Ireland forces us to find things to do inside when the weather is bad. We made this leaf craft this week while it poured outside.  It was low key, and required virtually no help from me!  Win Win!

Brad and I went on a date last Saturday night to a barbeque restaurant in town, Bison Bar.  Brad thinks Bison comes the closest to Texas barbeque, but I’m torn between it and Pitt Bros.  Either way – we’re always interested in trying out more barbeque joints!

I snapped this picture as we were waiting for our table.
