Best of the Web – Feb 20

Hi everyone!  Did everyone had a good week?  We’re finally back on Ohio time , sleeping-in is over (but not over-rated, ha).   We had a nice blanket of wet snow on Wednesday morning, so we enjoyed some snow time- especially our own Princess Yea-ya.

Best of the Web- October 3

Hi everyone and thank for stopping by!  It FEELS like October around here, as I’m sitting next to the space heater and considering adding more layers!  I’ve got fingers crossed that all of the rain we are getting won’t change the beautiful fall foliage that the weatherman has promised.

Here are my favorite links from this week:


Reaching Your Child in a World of Distraction  I never want to make moms feel guilty, but it is difficult sometimes to walk away from the busy-ness of the day and really engage with the kids.  Hands Free Mama handles this issue so well.


Guide to Consignment Shops  I love these tips from the Simple Dollar!  In the past month I’ve used a consignment shop to sell baby items, as well as a local selling wall.  There are so many great ways to sell things these days, not only does it help us to stash away some cash, but it also helps with the “one item in, one item out” rule we’ve made for housewares, toys, and books!

I’m Fine…Could be better. What should I do?  via Afford Anything.  For those who feel like we’re living the average life but want/can do more.


Because I love budgeting (oh, and wine). 🙂  Wine Tasting Destinations for Every Budget via Drink Tea & Travel

Just back:  Queenstown, NZ


Enjoy your weekend.
