Weekly round-up, Vol. 3

I forgot to do this post Friday night. And yesterday I got distracted and then depressed by college football (I'm an Iowa State Cyclone fan if that clears anything up).  And then I decided working on my novel was a better use of my evening.  So, you're getting my weekly round-up today.  Enjoy!

Sarah reflected on her first six months as a mom and talked about some things she'd do differently.  Even though I don't have kids, I have plenty of friends who do and I watch them struggle with some of these dilemmas. Hopefully they can read this and realize you don't have to be a perfect mom to be a great mom.

Holly hosted a d-i-wine night where friends made glitter printouts of their state And now I want to do this too.  Who wants to join me?

Juliette made oven s'mores.  I mean, do I really need to say anything else?

Contrary to the post I just pimped, I really have been meaning to eat better, but I haven't been very good about researching good meals and planning for them.  Katie is here to rescue me with a delicious-looking bacon chipotle meatloaf recipe.

It's been a rough season to be a Rangers fan. And it got a little rougher on Friday when Ron Washington resigned as manager for "off-field personal reasons."  I'm trying not to speculate on what those reasons are (though that's difficult because I'm curious and they're being all cryptic about it).  Instead, I'm praying that everything with Wash is OK (or will be) and extending gratitude for all he did for the Rangers organization.  Donny did a great job of highlighting a moment that is very indicative of the kind of manager Wash was.

Leslie talked about the unintentionally insensitive things people ask foster parents.

If you've been around these parts, you know I love Vodka and Soda's Humpday Confessions link-up.  I actually love her every day, but it's a secret love, really.  Until today obviously.  Anyhow.  On Friday, she shared some easy and yummy recipes I know I'll be trying a few of those.

Happy Sunday!
