Welcome to the second installment of my new feature! Hope you'll put up your feet, pour a glass of your favorite poison and feign interest in my random thoughts.
To kick this party into high gear, I want to share some of my favorite reads of the week.
Erica, has started Yeah Write Summer Academy and while I barely made the hangout grid this week I still managed to read EVERY. SINGLE. BLOG.
Go ahead and thank me now.
Reading all of the FANTASTIC is one of the highlights of my week and I want to share some of my personal favorites with you.
Kim's biggest fear is one of my own for different reasons. I was in awe of the punch she packed in 500 words or less. (I didn't count!)
Jennifer's brave, powerful post about taking a stand was heartbreakingly amazing.
It's no wonder this post by Michelle was the jury prize winner. GO. READ. NOW.
I have Shell over at Things I Can't Say to thank for finding this gem by Lea about Remember, remember the Fifth of July. If you don't cry then you aren't human.
Jennifer inspired me with her dinner menus though I'm going to start small and plan two weeks because I'm easily bored and distracted and well, you get the idea.
We spent our first Fourth of July in our new land and it was a far cry from celebrations past but I'll write about that later.
My scale is broken but I'm making no progress in walking/exercising/eating healthier. In fact, I only walked once this week. My birthday is in September and yet I sit here guzzling a beer wallowing in my lack of motivation.
How was your Independence Day?
