Hellooooo you friendly faces, you! And happy Sunday to ya 😀
In case you missed it, there’s a caramel apple overnight oatmeal smoothie that’s calling your name…
… and mine too, seeing as I’ve currently got one sitting in the fridge waiting to be blended up and eaten for breakfast tomorrow morning (read: today).
So hey! It’s time to share some good links from the past week! And if you’re wondering why there aren’t any health or fitness ones this time around, it’s because those are always the hardest for me to scrounge up and I didn’t come across any this week that I loved.
My biggest problem with a lot of health and fitness related links is that they tend to send the wrong kind of message and use too many absolute statements… Thou shalt not eat this. Thou shalt exercise like this… It opens the door for guilt to start creeping in if you feel like you’re not doing what you “should,” and that’s just not okay #rantover. So none of those for this week, but lots of life, blogging, and food related stuff… so I hope you find something good to read!
For my head…
