Friday Links


My oldest friend, Alicia, and her husband are coming in town this weekend. I am SO excited. While we're off exploring this excellent city of ours, I have some links to share.

This week we enjoyed a couple really tasty meals: Corn & Black Bean Quinoa and Stuffing Stuffed Pork Chops (Thanks, Val!). For the quinoa recipe, I didn't serve it as a cold salad, but instead sauteed and warmed up all the ingredients. It was very tasty and very hearty. And the pork chops? I mostly needed an excuse for stuffing. I can't quite let go of that part of the holidays.

I loved Mandy's post about her bra fitting. She has such a hysterical way of writing. I must admit, I've never had a bra fitting! She makes me think I should get one. I believe it'd be quite depressing with my current, post-breastfeeding situation.

My friend Shannen is starting a book club! The first book is Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. Can you believe I have never read it? Well, me neither! I'm so happy to have a reason to finally get to it. You should join in the discussion, too!

Do you read Cupcakes and Cashmere? I love her blog, but her outfits don't typically relate much to my mommy at the park lifestyle. This outfit, while not something I'd be able to wear daily, was just so beautiful.

Did you read Elizabeth's post last Friday? It was so, so good and reading the comments made me think about so much. The thing that has stuck with me all week is that I would like to spend more time engaging with Meredith than checking through blogs and twitter. I've been doing a lot more lap reading and rug playing this week and I have to say, it feels good.

Claire, thanks for including me! I bet Meredith has been jazzed about the new changes :)

Have fun!! I love when people come visit this awesome city! haha! I did read Elizabeth's post and came away with the same thing...making a small change like not being on my phone or computer so much has changed my boys attitudes in such a great way!

I can't tell you how excited we are to get to see you! Re: the book club - my book just came in! We'll have to chat about it over the weekend!
