link roundup / 31

August 28, 2015

Whew, I took a break from blogging this week while I was commuting and also to recover from Week in the Life. I’ve got some links for you today, and then hopefully regular posting will resume next week!

seinfeld last line

>Last lines of TV shows that will make you tear up, and I did.

>I love a good book list, and this is an awesome one I’d love to complete: 21 books from the last 5 years that every woman should read.

>And speaking of books, one of my favorite authors right now is Liane Moriarty. I’ve only read three of her books, but Laura has a complete guide to her.

>This is so good. And perfect that it was published on Meredith’s birthday, almost as if it was written for her. (Thanks, Maggie R.!)

>I love the library. It offers more than you know!

>My friend Amanda spent a month working on this farm during the summer, and now I am totally in love with the animals and life there. Amanda said it was so amazing.

>I don’t always remember to use Snapchat, but here’s how to use it and a good overview of why it’s fun! (I’m kapachinoblog over there.)

>This week I downloaded the Google Photos app and synced my photos. I’m so excited to free up that space and have all my pics readily available. Since my only camera is my phone, the free version is great for me and maybe now I can discontinue my Flickr Pro account. Here’s a review of the app if you’re curious!

>I love how Rebekah addressed the issue of when our kids take small steps outside the box of gender stereotypes. My kids (like most, I assume) do this all the time and it’s SO not a big deal, so let’s stop making it into one!

This week I had basically no free time so this weekend I plan to catch up on chores and meal planning, hopefully start on my Week in the Life album, and go on a date with David (it’s been awhile).

Happy Friday!

week in the life 2015 : sunday photos & words

August 24, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… Sunday, again, I did not want to wake up. Liam forced me to get out of bed around 7, but Meredith kept sleeping. Obviously my camera does not do well in low light, but I wanted to show her all cuddled up in my bed. I made some coffee and we played for a little bit. Liam actually had worn PJ’s but I took them off after changing his diaper. I needed to start working on some chores since I was still behind from yesterday, so I turned on the TV…

week in the life 2015 : saturday photos & words

August 23, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… Saturday I really did not want to get out of bed. Both kids had slept with me all night so I woke up to them crawling on me. At a certain point I couldn’t ignore it anymore. I think we got up around 6:30 a.m. Our plans for the day included going to the bay to fish and play on the beach. We were just going to head out as soon as we had breakfast and packed up, no real rush. While I was making breakfast, Liam found my hand weights…

week in the life 2015 : friday photos & words

August 22, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… A rough night and not the best morning. I’m feeling a bit discouraged about the whole sleeping situation. Meredith woke up multiple times during the night; at midnight she began crawling out of bed. I asked her if she had to go potty but she said no and started crying, “I don’t want to go to bed!” I told her it was the middle of the night but if she wanted to go play by herself then she could, but I was going back to sleep. She went back to sleep….

week in the life 2015 : thursday photos & words

August 21, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… Picking up from yesterday, I came back to my own bed at 2:00 a.m. Liam woke up so I had to nurse him. He woke up again at 5:00 a.m. to nurse. I really wanted to get up before the kids to do my morning routine, but by the time Liam settled back asleep it was 6 and that’s usually the time I start getting ready. But I really wanted to do my Bible study, so I made coffee and packed a lunch and then sat for ten minutes to do it….

week in the life 2015 : wednesday photos & words

August 20, 2015

This week I am documenting a week in our lives along with the Ali Edwards community. Here are some photos and words about yesterday, if you’d like to see… The morning didn’t go exactly as I wished it to. First of all, Meredith came into our bed at midnight so we still have some work to do there. And Liam started fussing at 5 so I couldn’t get up to do my own morning routine. When he finally finished nursing and I got up at 6, he was awake too. Like I said, you do what you have to do to get ready when you’re a working mom. Sometimes that means letting your toddler sit in the sink and play….
