The internet is a delightful place. I mean yes there are terrible comment sections and ridiculous memes and Buzzfeed quizzes that go around far too often, but in the end there are some real gems out there too. And because I’m all about sharing, here are some of my favorite gems as of late.
Becky, my fellow infertility warrior, is pregnant (huzzah!). And she wrote all about the feelings and the somewhat guilt of getting pregnant naturally. Her writing is raw and beautiful and I somewhat relate. The guilt is there, but so is the happiness and the need to keep on fighting.
Nicole, the queen of all things running and healthy and non-bullshit, wrote an awesome piece all about changing your plans. She had planned to run across America next year and due to injury, she had to ultimately change that plan. And it’s okay. Shit happens and we figure out how to make it work. And that’s what she’s doing.
Nora, my almost life twin, was featured on Kathleen’s blog all about working moms. And Nora’s post is so wonderful and emotional and honest as she talks about the difficultly and the joy that comes with being a Bonus Mom.
Ashley, supermom of two adorable boys and all around my frugal living idol, just turned 30 (w0o! welcome to the club!). To commemorate such an awesome birthday milestone she wrote a little something about things she learned in her twenties. And she learned some wonderful things we could all benefit from practicing.
Any good reads you’ve seen lately? Do share.

You know when weekends go by in a blur of goodness that you almost forget what happened? Yeah, that’s what this weekend was. A blur of goodness and fun times and October times.
Friday: A day full of eating cookies, working, embracing maternity fashion (leggings, sweet mercy they could have their own blog post at this point) and reading. An evening full of hanging out, relaxing and ultimately celebrating my aunt’s birthday with drinks and laughs.
Saturday: This might be the most spread out year of weddings that we’ve ever had. Saturday marked our second-to-last wedding of the year and oh twas delightful. Despite an eleventh hour outfit change, the day was stress free and full of a whole lot of love.
The venue was at an equestrian center and sweet mercy was it beautiful. It was fun to catch up some some old friends, meet some people from Matt’s younger years and to see such a happy bride and groom. I seriously just love all things wedding, and I love when they get all sorts of creative with signs and decor, like this one.
I mean, the funniest.
All in all there was some dancing, a lot of laughing and just a delightful time all around. My kind of Saturday night.
Sunday: After the Saturday night shenanigans I was quite ready for a lazy day. And that’s what it was – for the most part. I slept in, I relaxed and then we spent the whole afternoon watching football at the in-laws. Well watching football, cuddling with my niece, eating too much cheese, the usual. And despite Matt’s teams losing it was a delightful afternoon and evening all around.
And how was your weekend? Any weddingness or football? October shenanigans?
