Today I’m sharing some stuff I found around the internet. Enjoy!
One day I’d love to get fancy about my coffee (just for fun). Right now I just do a k-cup or a cold brew. This process (using a grinder, Chemex, and postal scale) seems overwhelming but it only takes 15 minutes so it’s something to shoot for! (And my Keurig just started malfunctioning, so maybe it’s a sign…)
I am completely in love with this advent calendar from Purl Soho and I want to make it SO badly. I totally can’t afford it right now but I need to make it happen somehow.
Craftsy is having a BIG summer sale if you’ve thought about giving it a try, now might be the time.
Baby names are fascinating and a subject that never gets old to me. I knew that when we chose Liam’s name that it was popular, but I loved it enough (and the fact that it’s a derivative of William, which is my father-in-law’s name) to name him that anyway. Apparently it’s super trendy right now, even more so than I realized, at number two in the country. And according to this analysis, it’s the youngest boys’ name in the country as well.
A physical health update is coming to you soon, but basically I’ve been somewhat counting my calories and although it is helping me, it’s not achieving my end goal of eating healthier, real food. Whole30 has been around for awhile and I’ve always shunned the thought of it but something about Katie’s post this week makes me want to give it a try. I’ve already started the book and I think I’m actually going to do it! More on this soon.
I ordered a big engineer print like this for over our bed.
Very inspired by this post about having a happy closet. I could completely relate. I went through a big purge recently but I know I can do better!
I don’t think I’m a Highly Sensitive Person, but I still got a lot out of these tips for highly sensitive parents.
My love for podcasts continues, even though I can’t keep up. Kyla has a bunch of recommendations about blogging, lifestyle, and pop culture, some of which I listen to and totally love, and I’ve added lots more to my list to try out.
Speaking of podcasts, I’ve been considering hosting one of my own. I’m a long way from it yet, but if I could gauge any interest I might go for it. It would most likely be about working motherhood, interview-style, and would of course include creativity, goal-setting, time management, healthy living, etc. along with all the issues involved in being a working mom. Let me know what you think!
