Links I Love

Most evenings, after the kids go to bed and I’m finished with whatever work I needed to wrap up, I love to browse all my favorite blogs and websites for recipes, articles, quizzes, and other fun things to keep me up far too late. Here are some links that I’ve come across lately that were too fun to keep to myself! Healthy Dip Recipes. YUM! Have you checked out Paperless Post lately?

Summertime Peach and Tomato Salad + Weekly Meal Plan

tomato and peach salad

I love finding simple recipes for all our fabulous summer Farmer’s Market finds. We love to scour our local market for squash, zucchini, cucumbers, greens, okra, tomatoes (of course), and Georgia favorites, peaches! The kids will just eat them like apples, but I like to find more creative ways to use them. So imagine my delight when I came across this recipe from Mark Bittman of the New York Times that I had saved (and printed out!) ages ago. So[Read more]

Mid-Summer Check-In

Hello my long-lost friends! I took a somewhat unintentional summer hiatus, but am back to check in with you! I hope your summer is going well- it’s lasted about 30 minutes for us, or so it seems.

But so far, we’ve had some fun, some work, some downtime, some travel, and I thought I’d[Read more]

This is 37: Trader Joe’s Favorites

Hello again my friends! I got to stretch my birthday out a bit longer with an awesome day out shopping with my mom on Monday. We don’t get to do that nearly as often as we’d like (or used to back before kids), so it was a real treat! And then life got SO BUSY again, and here I am and it’s Thursday (but only two days of school left)!! And I’m continuing to stretch out my birthday this week,[Read more]

This is 37: TV Shows to Binge

Hello and Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Friday was my Grayson’s birthday and yesterday was mine, so we had a big, celebratory birthday weekend!
