Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
I hope you don’t mind if I skimp on the intro for today’s post, because I spent the majority of the yesterday at my cousin’s wedding, and now it’s super later and all I can think about is crawling into bed and reading 3 pages of my book before passing out for the night. Maybe 4 if I’m feeling super ambitious.
And speaking of reading, I hope you guys enjoy these links I came across this week! It was a bit of a crazy one and I didn’t manage to spend as much time online as I usually do, but there’s still plenty of good stuff in here. And a picture from the road just because.

So many great reads this week! I especially love “The Eye-Opening Truth About Protein” because SO many people really have no clue, and as someone studying for her RD exam spreading the knowledge is power!
Joyce @ The Hungry Caterpillar
No worries on skimping on the post–sounds like a long day. And that picture is worth a thousand words–even from you!
Yesterday I flew home to Kansas for Labor Day weekend, worked on a puzzle with my boyfriend, and had dinner with my family, including my brother and his wife.
Today I still don’t know what I’m going to do–but some drafting would probably be wise. I’ve got a thesis due by March! Plus I need to write a Week in Review for Meg’s linkup and keep working on that puzzle.
Erin @ Erin's Inside Job
Thanks Amanda! I hope you had a great time! I’m spending this weekend RELAXING and also taking a MERMAID class today which will be AMAZING. Lots of caps haha.
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
Mermaid class?!?! Ok that sounds seriously cool.
Rachel @ athleticavocado
Hope you had a great time at the wedding! Yesterday: worked out, blogged, hung out with friends. Today: worked out, church and school work/studying. Thank you for this link up and I hope you have an amazing week 🙂
Yeah so those fries look and sound amazing. I need to get some stat, although maybe I should finish my lemon water first. Or maybe I shouldn’t read blogs on an empty stomach.
Yesterday: I got a nap, took Laura to the airport and had a Sex and the City marathon with Lucie.
Today: I’m going to work on my WIR, play with the kid and then watch more SATC. That last one reminds me of Toronto. 🙂
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
I was going to say!! I think the last SATC marathon I had was back in Toronto 😛
Jess @ Keeping It Real Food
Hope you had a great time at the wedding! It’s always much more fun when you know people there.
Yesterday I worked at the hospital, did laundry, and took care of errands and basic household tasks. Today’s another clinical day, but after my shift, I have plans to catch up on some writing before meeting my parents for dinner. Have a great Sunday!
michele @ paleorunningmomma
Hope you’re having an amazing time! Yesterday we celebrated my dad’s birthday and today I have to catch up on life! Adam and I are also finally planning to go out for our anniversary although like Meredith said there’s supposed to be a huge storm, so we’ll see.
