First of all: Babies in overalls. Do it.
Next - Favorite new (to me) recipes:
Slow Cooker Ham & Potato Soup from Dinner, then Dessert
Butternut Squash Carbonara from How Sweet Eats
Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu from Skinny Taste
Chai Snickerdoodle Cookies from The Year of Cozy
No list is complete without my latest favorite books:
News of the World by Paulette Jiles
The One-in-a-Million Boy by Monica Woods
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
In other book news: Swede and I have been enjoying new bedtime stories from Lillypost. This is a subscription box with four picture books (or five board books) every month. The day the books arrive (individually wrapped in the cutest paper) is so fun for Swede (and me).
I'm a little obsessed with Primary. They have a great line of basic kids clothes in bright fun colors. I bought Swede a bouquet of short-sleeve dresses for spring/summer.
Unwrapping new Lillypost books & wearing a Primary dress.
After six months of 21 Day Fix I was ready for something new and found BodyFit by Amy on YouTube - Great strength and HIIT workouts for cross-training days.
I am still loving my new running shoes - the Saucony Freedom ISO - and my current favorite running song is I Love It by Icona Pop. [Not a new song obviously but new to my playlist.]
Finally - Some recent interesting reads from the Internet:
- My Real Life and Being Happy - Interesting thoughts on the shift in blogging over the past decade.
- I'm Done Making My Kid's Childhood Magical - I generally refer to my childhood as "idyllic" and there was definitely not all the Pinterest-y hoopla that can distract us (and I'm including myself here) from what is really important.
- Depressed by Politics? Just Let Go - But don't ignore the second to last paragraph - The key is to do something about it rather than passively consuming then feeling angry, frustrated, and/or hopeless.
That's all! Well, not quite - How about a photo of Gumball for the road? I don't think she gets enough love on the blog.
Let me know what you think I should put on MY list.
