weekend links



william is so close to being able to sit. milestones happen so fast at this stage and i have a love/hate relationship with it. the older boys got to do a carwash the other day while i got dinner ready. micah’s been asking to do it again every day since.

now for some weekend reading!

The world has enough women who know how to do their hair. It needs women who know how to do hard and holy things. The world has enough women who live a masked insecurity. It needs more women who live a brave vulnerability. This is such a good reminder for me.

i’ve been looking for new dining room chairs for.ever. and either they’re too expensive or jerry doesn’t like them. i’m looking at these currently after inspiration from the faux martha (it was in her insta stories.)

i’m pretty sure this was jerry the first time he had bacon.

i am totally disgusted that a hotel in PA would be an epicenter for human trafficking and that no one spoke up about it.

i seriously was crying from laughing so hard at this one.

i love this madewell tee.

also, why is it so hard to find a red swimsuit that isn’t baywatch or wildly immodest?! maybe this one or this one. i’m a little nervous about the sizing, but since they’re free returns, i have nothing to lose.

have a great weekend!

the boys reading books to william the other morning while i got ready. they’re such good big brothers, entertaining him so i can at least get dressed. and maybe even put on some makeup.

i shared on my instagram that i’m joining Julie from SoCanary on her #wholecanary. i’m giving up sugar, sticking to three meals a day (it will help me keep from emotional eating), planning out the night before what i’m eating (again, to keep from emotional eating, but also, making sure i’m eating a balanced diet) and limiting my flours to only 100% whole grains (and even that limited). i log my food on myfitnesspal.

i ordered these earrings the other day and they should be arriving today. just in time for a date!

this kid on ellen was so cute.

recovering from perfect mom syndrome.

being a n’sync fan growing up, and a current justin timberlake fan, i loved this commercial.

scientists discover why you hate the sound of loud chewing. guilty.

have a great weekend!

what are you up to this weekend? i have a baby shower to go to saturday morning and then we have some friends coming over for dinner. i think i’m going to unplug from all social media and news all weekend. it’s been quite a mind taxing week.

if you feel so led, please sign this petition to stand in solidarity with refugees. it only takes ten seconds.

the 2017 oscar nominations. i love watching the oscars, although i’m not a huge jimmy kimmel fan. and i’ve seen none of the best picture nominations yet but want to see quite a few of them once they come out on dvd.

speaking of movies… here are the most anticipated movies of 2017. at least according to rolling stone. some i really turn my head at (raw?!, john wick {side note: can morpheus and neo be in a movie together other than the matrix?!] the fate of the furious [what is this, number 9?!]), others i look forward to seeing. logan, kong: skull island (i’ve only seen the preview just from reading this article but it looks interesting), dunkirk, darkest hour. (side note number two: when did i get so in to history?!)

how pretty is this sweater? i love the zipper detail.

a thought provoking article and video from desiring god on the anniversary of roe v. wade.

dick van dyke’s tribute to mary tyler moore.
