Weekend Reads

by Kim on February 9, 2013

Hey hey! What’s up today?

Brent’s having a guys’ weekend, so I’m hanging out at my parents’ for a few days. They’re in the process of prepping their house to go on the market, so I spent a few hours last night helping my mom clean out a (ginormous) closet and strip wallpaper off a wall. (If you’ve never stripped wallpaper off a wall, I highly recommend it! It was surprisingly satisfying and therapeutic…)

The house projects will probably continue today, but I wanted to make sure to stop in here first to share a few reads from the week.

weekend reads

–I love Lindsay’s “Back to the Basics” series. Especially this post about the only true way to see a change in your physique.

–MizFit rocked this post about why it’s important to leave margins in your life. (And I only found that post by reading this equally interesting post about why blog reading is dangerous.)

–I just discovered a new blog, and wow…this girl lives in my brain. She’s getting back into running after having a baby, and every word sounds SO familiar.

–Melissa is prioritizing her health over having another baby. Her honesty and self-respect is so refreshing.

–A great post from another new-to-me blogger about why we need to stop blowing off compliments.

–Ever heard the phrase “abs are made in the kitchen”? This is a good start.

–For runners: ways to get over our favorite excuses.

–On the first Thursday of every month, Brittany hosts a Munchkin Meals link-up, where you can find great healthy baby/toddler meal ideas from tons of mommy bloggers. For example, I loved this MM post by Madeline (which includes a giveaway!). Now, if only Mason could eat half of that stuff…sighhh.

–A very old, but new to me, post by Heather on how to feel beautiful. I was surprised (in a good way) that her first two points involved clothes—I thought I was the only one who did that!

Best Beyonce tweets from the Super Bowl. My favorite: “Cool of these football guys to open for Beyonce.”

What are you up to this weekend?

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend with your folks! My hubby is going away for a guys weekend (well 5 days) in a few weeks and my mom will be coming to stay. I actually look forward to those little guy getaways sometimes since it gives me a chance to have a girls weekend! Plus the Nugget of coarse!

It is nice (especially for him! haha), but I was glad I had my mom to keep me company!
