Happy #thinkingoutloud Thursday! No idea what I’m going on about? Click here!

Thinking-Out-Loud

1. Two weeks. It’s been two.whole.weeks since I’ve had a chance to do any legitimate thinking out loud, and that’s just not okay. I need this to be a weekly thing otherwise I look at the notes I jotted down and think “SOMETHING? What the heck did I want to say about SOMETHING?” ūüėĮ I’m sure I’ll have a EUREKA! moment and it’ll come to me at the most inconvenient time — like when I’m in the shower or about to fall asleep at 12:23am — but for now let’s chat about something I actually remember wanting to discuss, shall we? M’yes.

2. Actually, before we do that, I should probably share the winners of last week’s Erin Condren giveaway

EC Win

Big congrats to those who won (you’ll be contacted today), and thanks so much to everyone who entered! I wish I could send out a Life Planner to everyone, buuuuut that’s not exactly within the budget at this point. If you’re still interested in getting a planner of your own, you can sign up using my referral link and get $10 off your first order. In the interest of full disclosure, I’ll also get $10 credited to my account, so it’s wins all around.

Sweet,¬†salty, and melt-in-your-mouth¬†delicious, these¬†no bake salted caramel pretzel bars are made without flour, butter, or refined sugar, but you’d never be able to tell!

You guys are my favourite.   For reals. Thank you so [so, so, so, so] much for all your comments, Tweets, e-mails, and blog shoutouts yesterday — you seriously rock my socks off. And yes, I am actually wearing socks as I type this. Flip flop freedom was fun while it lasted, but cooler morning temps paired with coffee […]

For real. If you would have asked me even […]

I’m thinking oatmeal for dinner tonight. Or pancakes. Ooooo definitely pancakes. With maple syrup, nut butter, and berries. Swooooooon. But I digress. It’s no secret […]
