Sharing, obsessing and giving


As I've mentioned many times, my Google Reader is perhaps my favorite thing on the internet.  Everyday, it's bursting with funny, inspirational, touching and smart posts.  I've discovered some amazing bloggers, and I look forward to reading their thoughts each time I open up my Reader.   Here are a few of my recent favorites:

Meg wrote about self-love and acceptance.  Something we should all strive for.

JKT wrote about patience, especially where it relates to fitness goals.  I am tend to be very impatient, so it really spoke to me.

Evie explained why life isn't like the movies and TV shows.  And how disappointing that can be until you just accept that life is still pretty great.

Calee wrote about planning and making time for what's important.  I definitely need to do more of this.

Kristin at Iowa Girl Eats offered recipes for chipotle black bean burgers and mini banana cream pies. I don't know how she finds so much time to cook.  And not just cook, but AMAZING meals.  I guess I need to read Calee's post again, huh?



I go through spurts of being obsessed with certain foods, music, etc.  

Here's what I'm obsessed with this week.

Food:  Eggs and toast.  And watermelon. --- I would eat this for every meal if I could.  As it is, I eat it once a day.

Music:  Eric Hutchinson - "Moving Up Living Down" --- This CD has been in my player constantly since it came out.  I cannot get enough. "Living in the Afterlife" and "The People I Know" are my favorites, but the whole thing is fantastic.

TV Show: "The Glass House" --- It's like "Big Brother" with a twist.  I'm anxious to see how it plays out.

Internet Timewaster: #whatshouldwecallme and #whatshouldwecallme...maybe? --- Awesome gifs.  Lots of laughs.



Finally, it's time to announce the winner of my 500th Post Celebration Giveaway.  
I was going to wait until tomorrow, but I just can't.
Thanks to all who entered. I was blown away by the response.
I wish I could send goodies to everyone.  
But I'd go broke.  

The winner is ...

Congratulations Jill S.!!

I'll be e-mailing you shortly about your prize.

Happy Friday everyone!!


  1. Um you totally made my day!! You're so sweet :) And I'm totally encouraged you used that post- I thought for sure it'd be one everyone skipped over because it was a whole bunch of rambling. Thanks for sharing, girl! Oh and I'm obsessed with those sites too. Oh my they suck me in!

  2. I adore my google reader... sometimes I think of how lost I would be without it!

    I am also obsessed with eggs and toast lately (although we are out of bread, so it's been biscuits)... breakfast the last 2 days :)
