Weekly Round Up

Things that happened this week…

1. I kicked off my own personal healthy living endeavor with the intention of losing 30 pounds by the end of the year. I haven’t had a treat since Sunday. Right now, I’d give you my car for a brownie.

2. I’ve been noodling around on Pinterest for awhile, but this week I fell head first into the site and I can’t stop cruising over so see everyone’s new pins. What a glorious way to waste time. SO much more constructive than Facebook. 😉

3. It’s HOT. I loathe the heat, so I invite my girl outside at the crack of dawn to play with chalk on the shady side of the house.

Hopscotch is awesome! Unless you’re sporting an extra 30 pounds of pregnancy weight, then all that hopping leads to you making a sad face about how disappointing it is that ALL of those body parts now jiggle. (*See above commitment to losing weight.)

When I wasn’t sweating, pinning or hopping, I found a few posts I wanted to share with you this week…

Sometimes I feel silly, taking the photos that I do. I imagine that my Instagram and Facebook friends spend a lot of time scratching their heads and wondering why I’m such a weirdo. This post from Tracey Clark erased that feeling.

Funny words from Alice Bradley of Finslippy.

The title says it all: “Approximately 3 Minutes Inside the Head of My 2 Year Old” (Via Carina)

BWAHAHAHAHA! (I love a post that starts with “Girl, please.”)

This photographer deserves a high five: “If You’re Ugly I Won’t Take Your Photo” (Via Erica)

Cute back-to-school party favors and decorations from One Charming Party that would also work well for a birthday party.

Have a great weekend! If you have any healthy snack ideas, do share.

    I love your random pics. I would be sad and disappointed if you didn’t take them. I’d have to bring you lots of sugar treats!
