Blogger Love Vol. 1

Happy Saturday friends! What a crazy full week we've had. This morning, I'm going out on a doughnut trail adventure with my girlfriend. 9 doughnut shops, a passport and a prize of a t-shirt. Sometimes, I question my sanity. I plan to Periscope bits and pieces of our adventure throughout the day so be sure to catch the live video or even the playback. For those of you taking it easy this morning, I want to share a handful of my favorite posts from the world wide web this week.


SIMPLY THE BEST BLUEBERRY MUFFINS by Our Pretty Little Girls
I have yet to make something of Beth's that's not amazing. Everything she whips up is so tasty and fairly easy. I shared our recipe a few weeks ago but Beth switched up the game with a crumbly crunchy topping. I can't wait to make them.

TO THE BOY WHO TOLD MY DAUGHTER SHE ISN'T PRETTY ENOUGH TO PLAY WITH by Shiraz In My Sippy Cup
Courtney is a dear friend of mine so reading this post broke my heart. Not just for her and Maddy and the bullying they experienced but because as mothers we want nothing but to protect our babies. I always say that if nothing else, I hope we raise Connor to be a kind-hearted man that respects and treats others fairly. Bullying at 4 blows my mind.

ACCENTUATE THE POSITIVE by Handsful of Life
As Connor gets older, discipline is starting to be a daily battle. I don't want to be too hard on him yet I don't want to raise a terror either. Because I want to be fair, I love the idea of having him earn special treats and outings at the end of the week based on that week's behavior. Nili shares 2 ideas to incorporate to create a positive parenting/childhood experience.

MY FIRST AND LAST STITCH FIX REVIEW by Leah With Love
I've tried Stitch Fix twice now and both time I'm totally bummed with the clothing I've been sent. Leah shared her experience and mine is pretty much spot on to what felt when trying the service. While I think it's a fabulous concept and it's fun getting the package each time, it's just not for me. I've kept 2 items as to not waste my $20 styling fee but overall, it's just not something I'll be doing again in the future.

SHARING KINDNESS OVER NEGATIVITY by Grammie Time
Michelle is such a kind spirit and I love this post. While I'm by no means innocent when it comes to gossip, what Michelle shares really hits home. I need to be more careful with my words and what I share about someone to others.  If I want to surround myself with positivity, I need to first remove any negative talk or thinking. Thank you, Michelle, for the reminder.

What post inspired you this week?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, friends!
