Sunday Roundup

Sunday Roundup

This week was really wonderful. I guess compared to the few weeks before, it was to be expected, but I am still glad that things are back to looking up in my world. I found out yesterday that my throat is totally fine and no follow up surgery is needed. I even started exercising again this week (and pigging out ooops). The weather is lovely, we have been spending a lot of time outside and working on our yard. It’s just been really really nice.

There were a lot of really great reads in my reader this week so without further ado, here is my link love for the week

First, I won two giveaways! Angela at Cottage Magpie did her Color Challenge Results:Yellow post full of all sorts of wonderfully creative uses of yellow from so many bloggers. And I won her giveaway for a pillow! Yay! I am so excited! Also, Being Frugal did a Smarty Pig Review and Giveaway and I was one of the $25 Smarty Pig giftcard winners! Yay! Thank you to both of you for randomly drawing me!!

I’d like to highlight a new blog I found this week On Simplicity. I love this blog. Please take the time to head on over there and check it out and here is one of my favorite articles from there this week Am I Just Faking It?

Other posts from my reader that I enjoyed are

How To Be a Woman from Squawk Fox
Seize The Day, Tomorrow Is Not Yours from paradigm shifted
Chore Chart For Preschoolers from Simple Mom that even includes a downloadable chart! We aren’t to rewarding for chores yet, but I love this system!
Ron at The Wisdom Journal had his Credit Card Die This Week.
Frugal Dad shared his ideas to Create a Freedom Chart to Map Early Retirement
I love this idea for A Goals Board from Move To Portugal
Speaking of Goals, Brip Blap shared Why You Need to Write Your Goals Down
and Nutrition Fitness Life shared Three Steps to Achieve Your Goals.

That’s all folks! Enjoy your reading and the rest of your weekend!
