Embracing the bitter with the sweet – this is where I am right now and definitely spoke to me!

The importance of setting manageable goals – bonus, she mentions a book that I’ve reviewed here before!

I ordered a salad from a restaurant earlier this week (thank you Christmas gift card that was hiding in my bag!), and I realized that I definitely haven’t been eating enough vegetables lately. Here’s a good (easy!) recipe to get some more vegetables in and possibly help with a sweet tooth!

Sometimes Char spends a little more time on my iPad than I think she should. However, this article talks about why her kids have relatively limitless screen time. I think this is the camp I fall into!

Home maintenance is one of those things that I’m really bad about keeping up with. This article has a list of six apps that will help you with that. I need to load the first one right now!

I have been feeling kind of frumpy and blah lately, and it shows in how I have been dressing and fixing (or not fixing, to be honest) my hair. This hairstyle looks simple to do but more put together than the crooked ponytail I’ve been rocking lately.

It’s the Year of the Dog, according to the Chinese calendar. I never really knew anything about the Chinese New Year, so this article about some of the traditions and superstitions was really interesting!

Hope you have a great week!

I love doing creative things like decorating my planner (nerd alert, right?), but I always felt like I didn’t have enough time for it. This post has five ideas for how I can get back on track with being more creative.

People usually think about being more generous during Thanksgiving and Christmas, but generosity can happen anytime during the year. Here’s a cool Halloween project that will help spread some cheer!

In other Halloween news, an art teacher in New York decorated his yard with gravestones from pop-culture trends that died in 2017. My favorite is “the old Taylor Swift.”

We have a waffle maker, uh, somewhere in a box in our basement. When we unpack it, I want to try this sweet potato waffle recipe. It sounds really good and simple enough for me to make!

Sometimes when a tragedy or difficult situation happens to someone you know, you don’t contact them because you think someone else probably has already. But what if no one has? What if you’re the only one?

A dad created an Instagram account called “Got Toddlered” and invited parents to submit pictures of themselves before and after children. Some of the posts are hilarious! I definitely want to participate in this!!

We’re working on cleaning up our budget and being wiser with our money. This post talks about how to cut your restaurant budget. That’s where we spend the most money, so it’s time to take this advice!

Have a great week!
