Weekend Reading

Photo-by-Reza-Shayestehpour


We've had a rainy start to the weekend, and I'm totally okay with that. Rain gives you the perfect excuse for staying in your pajamas, hunkering down inside, and slowing everything down. And since this past week has been both hectic and quiet (more on that in a later post), I'm relishing the opportunity to focus on the things I don't normally have time to do. Like reading and writing new blog posts!

Here are some of the things that have captured my attention since last weekend.

  1. I doubt this news will prevent me from eating French fries (or other forms of fried potatoes).
  2. Despite having family favorites on standby, it's always a good thing to have new sources of inspiration for Pizza Night.
  3. We're years away from this issue, but I have to wonder... Where do you draw the line between being an involved parent and being a helicopter parent?
  4. I like to think of myself as a financially responsible person. That doesn't mean I can't pick up some new tips and tricks for managing my money every now and then. 
  5. I've had this book on the Kindle app on my phone forever, and I'm finally getting a chance to dive into it. Hooray!
  6. Caroline and I recently attended a local arts festival. Apparently, she inspired the event photographers to take her picture. Must have been the pink tutu.
  7. Okay, I admit it. I'm obsessed with Kate Middleton's fashion sense and will likely try to emulate her style once this baby is born.
  8. This happened six years ago today.
