Time to round up some of the things I’m lovin’ this week.
I know it’s not new this week, but lately I have been absolutely in love with the new way pinterest boards let you organize and add sub-boards. It makes things easier to find and makes my boards feel less cluttered.
Elder Scrolls Online – Summerset.
I bought this as a preorder (so I could get some nice perks) and I do not regret it. If you play on ps4, hit me up on PSN:
Speaking of Amazon, you all know Prime Day is in a few days, right?
Prime day is one of my favourite days for finding deals.
If you aren’t a prime member now’s the time to get onboard.
Not only do you get exclusive deals, but you get free shipping & access to Prime Video & Prime Music with your membership! Not only that, you get a one month free trial that you can cancel anytime!
One thing I love about this city are the festivals that we have all summer long. The park is alive and full of people, and food. All the food.
I really like food, okay?
So much so I’m part of a fb group for posting food pics.
This video is so on point.
Stop complaining about the back to school stuff.
These people are teaching our children, buy the class some Kleenex.
Most of you probably forgot I exist because it’s been about 1000 years since I posted. I took a hiatus. I needed some time to figure out what I was doing with this blog. The hiatus was supposed to be short, but then life happened.
During my away time I’d think back to this blog and make a mental note to post. Then time got ahead of me, as it sometimes does. I got to thinking about why I took the hiatus. In short, I was getting too in my head. Worrying about my numbers, my views, my “niche”. You know what happened? Blogging became less about just enjoying the moment and interacting with others. I started to really resent blogging. I felt like I could only post certain things because the not all posts fell into my “niche”.
Then when my yearly site fees came up I had to really think about if I wanted to renew or not. I came to the conclusion that it wasn’t blogging I had grown to dislike, it was the imaginary rules I pushed on myself.Blogging is supposed to be fun, right? So why was I making it a chore? Who made these rules anyways?
Who says I have to follow them?
So, I’m breaking the chains, and the rules. I’m following my own blogging path. From here on out my blog is going to me a mixed bag of posts. not following some niche. I’m not going to dwell on the numbers. I’m going to post things I want to. I’m going to make my blogging experience fun again. I hope some of you stick around. 🙂
It’s already November, what?! It seems like this year has gone by quicker than usual. I’m afraid I’ll blink and it will be Christmas! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.The Month of November I typically like to post about the little things I have to be thankful for, just as a reminder that the little things are the important things.
This week has been nuts. I woke up Wednesday and was dizzy and nauseous. My husband told me to go lay down and he took care of everything. The kids. The house. Everything. While I know that’s part of being a parent, I’m still beyond grateful for him on days like this. Because of him I got to rest and recuperate and now I’m feeling 96% better. Bonus? He is also dad-soloing this Saturday while I’m out of town.
I feel like I haven’t blogged in forever. The end of summer/early September tends to be chaotic while we try to enjoy the last days of summer and get ready for back to school. Things have calmed down around here so let’s jump back in with an October Currently post.
Happy World Breastfeeding Week! Today I’m pulling an entry from last year’s
–Originally posted Aug 3rd 2016–
World Breastfeeding week is a time where moms get to talk about their struggles and their own breastfeeding journey. It can be a week where breastfeeding moms get to feel pride in all they’ve overcome and achieved. Often times breastfeeding moms feel they need to hide, especially after they’ve hit the 12 month mark. So it’s really nice to see breastfeeding in a positive light.
Sometimes WBW comes across as breastfeeding moms trying to ‘prove’ they’re better. Sometimes some breastfeeding moms use this week to shame those who are formula feeding.
Many formula feeding moms feel this week may be an attack on them personally.
None of that is what this week is about.
