Friday, I'm in ♥




Welcome to another addition of my Friday favorites. I love social media. One of the reasons is because of the constant exposure to new blogs, sites and articles I may have never found otherwise! Isn't it great stumbling on something or someone that you just love?! So, here we go with our list for this week. Hope you enjoy! And don't forget, share with me what you loved this week.


  • 5 Tips for Staying Inspired by Elsie over at A Beautiful Mess. I'm sure we've all been there - in a rut and trying to figure out how to get out of it. Elsie has some good tips on how to keep your inspiration up!

  • This post from Krystina of Lollipops. It's all about how to use Cozi for meal planning. I downloaded Cozi a while back in an attempt to simplify some of my life and plan our family meals. However, until this post, I had no clue at all what I could really do with it! Now, meal planning at my house is going to be super simple!

  • I got chills when I read Diary Of a Domestic Failure talk about bullying among kids. It's a harsh reality that doesn't seem to be going away and I was touched by her honesty. With 4 kids at home, this really resonates with me as I strive to ensure that they are not getting bullied or participating in any bullying.

  • A super refreshing post by Acute Designs on how sometimes it can feel like there are too many cooks in the kitchen in the blog and homemade business world. I know we all feel it sometimes - the frustration that maybe we don't stand out enough or the jealousy that other people are more 'successful.' Gina lets us know we aren't alone and how to combat these feelings when we have them.

  • My super amazing friend Claire not only re-launched her shop on Thursday, but is launching her 'How to Sew' series starting February 1st. Visit her blog Polkadot-Pretties to sign up for the newsletter. I'm especially excited because I've been wanting to learn how to use my sewing machine for close to a year now. I'm sure that this series is not going to only inspire me, but teach me, because Claire is simply amazing!

  5. I have never heard of Cozi before but I just finished downloading the app to my iPhone. I just got this this and I've been trying to find some helpful organizational and planning tools. I've picked up Evernote last night and holy moly that thing is confusing. Cozi seems a lot more user friendly. We'll see how it goes :)

  7. This helps to ensure your brand-new kitchen countertops not merely seems wonderful, however who’s also comments the kitchen cabinets you will probably have mounted. Up coming, you will need to select how your kitchen countertop will likely be installed.
