Happy Friday and long weekend!!
I love blogging for so many reasons but mostly because you all introduce to me to so many new things. It's usually clothes or home decor (and my husband hates you for it), but I have also come across so many new resources for cleaning, cooking, parenting, decorating, living, you name it...
So many of you have talked about it, so I bought this book and printed this list, and our house has less "stuff" in it. Chad loves me even more now and Goodwill just got a huge donation of really nice name brand clothes. Sigh.
(Have you read it? It's pretty intense...I may do a Cliff's Note version of it.)
Maybe I am the last one to this party, but the Recipe Critic is my new best friend. Chad and I struggle between eating healthy and eating quick/cheap, but she has some delicious dinners (more on the quick/cheap side) that even I can make! Taco Stroganoff, Steak and Tortellini Salad...YUM!
I've also used Plated twice and LOVE IT.
We didn't like Blue Apron, so I am happy that Plated works for us!
This blogger makes me insanely jealous of her wardrobe (which I'm sure she gets for free), but I basically told my Stitch Fix stylist to send me anything that she wears. :)
Also, her size 2 body makes anything look good, but I can still dream, right?!
Not only have a discovered a bunch of fun new mom blogs over the past few weeks, but they have introduced me to some wonderful parenting tips and ways to live life EASIER. Enter no bake energy balls. I know these are so 2008, but this recipe is SO EASY, and I can whip them up in a second. (We add cinnamon because we add cinnamon to everything, and they are delicious.)
Colleen is such a fun, hands-on mom, so when she shared this Fall Scavenger Hunt printout, I knew we would have to try it. (We are having four families, with seven kids, over this weekend, so I am totally printing this off to get the kids outside!)
Have a great long weekend!! We have a few plans - a fall festival, a football game, a football party (hence the four families and seven kids) and Monday of just me, Cam and Louise!
