weekly links: 34/52

It’s late on Sunday night so I thought I’d play catch up and share my favorite links from this past week (week 34/52). This week we have a little of everything: inspiration, fashion, food, wisdom, and a smart tip that can bless other women! 

Ps., if you find a blog that you want to follow on a regular basis, a great way to keep up with them is with Bloglovin’.

WISDOM of the week: the six words that can change everything at home. 

{ the small things blog }
INSPIRATION of the week: I shared a “beauty” post from Kate last week, but this is more of a “day in the life” from her perspective as a mom of two under two (makes me need a nap just thinking about it). I think this will be reassuring for those of you who find yourselves in that season.

RECIPE of the week: I am currently obsessed with raspberries, and chocolate is always a YES in my book, so this recipe for a Chocolate Raspberry Cake is definitely on my To Make list. (which is a short list, by the way.)  Also – – I can appreciate the detailed step-by-step instructions for this recipe!

FASHION of the week: I’ve learned that cardigans, kimonos, and ponchos are staples for my wardrobe. (Also stripes, because Duh.) I love layering, and these kind of pieces make it easy to be comfortable and look cute. Maternity or not – I love almost all of these outfits.

TIP of the week: Lindsey is a friend of mine and she is now a mom of two! If you used a Medela breast pump while nursing, Lindsey tells you how you can pass it on to a mom in need (it’s really simple!)

Hope you’ve had a happy and relaxing weekend, friends! Let’s make this week a good one.

weekly links: 33/52

Here we are with some good reads for week 33/52! (Posting this late because my arms were full with a sick baby for half the week!) This is the third post in a series I’m doing of my favorite finds each week. This is hopefully a way for you to read something you might have missed otherwise, and discover new blogs to follow. If you have a favorite link for this week, please post it in the comments so we can check it out!

{ You can catch up on the past posts in this series here and here. }

I think I first discovered Kate Connor on Instagram, and I adore her writing. This post about the messy parts of life has me nodding in agreement and feeling so grateful for people who are willing to be honest.

I think pretty much everyone adores HGTV’s Fixer Upper, and I’m no exception. I’ve even said I wanted to be on the show just so I could tour the Gaines’ farmhouse and hang out with Chip and Joanna! Here is a photo tour of their house and it does not disappoint. My favorite spot? Probably that dreamy master bedroom.

This ministry has been so affirming to me as a mom, especially this post as I’ve spent hours on end holding my sick baby (and not getting much else done) this week. It couldn’t have come at a better time. 

{ the small things blog }
This is one of my favorite blogs to check in on. Although Kate is well known as a beauty blogger, she shares family updates on her little boys as well. This is her attempt to look “fresh in fifteen,” as she’s now a mom of two, so primp time has diminished greatly. I even tried this myself and was surprised at how much I was able to do in just 15 minutes!

Well if you haven’t already become a fan of this blog, this is my third attempt in three weeks to convert you. 🙂  Read this for a guilt-free perspective from a fellow mom on the hard days.

{ vintage revivals }
And lastly, how cute is this baby announcement? Ps. her DIY blog will rock your socks off. 

Enjoy your Sunday!
