It feels so weird to write the date with “11” in it – how is it November?! Axel will be 1 year old on Monday and Max will be 6 months old next Friday. Crazy how fast time flies! But since it’s so cold, I’m already getting in the Christmas spirit…starting to decorate and even listening to Christmas music (go ahead, hate me for it).
“People are afraid to make a change when they’re doing something that already works”
I listened to the latest episode of this podcast -an interview with Arianna Huffington – while working out this week. When To Jump is a podcast that interviews public figures, academics, executives, and everyday people around the experience of “taking a jump” (chasing their dreams).
These 30 Conversation Starters for Spouses to Dream Together by Marriage365 are a great way to connect with your spouse and learn some new things about each other. Marriage365 frequently sends out lists of questions to ask each other (usually less than 30), and we like to do them at dinner, during date night, on long plane/car trips, etc.
New “go to” recipe
I have a few different “go to” recipes that I can pretty much always make in a pinch – I have all the ingredients and they take minimal time and effort to prepare. This 5 Minute Brown Butter Chicken and Crispy Sage has been added to the arsenal. I served it with cauli rice, broccoli, and butternut squash (all frozen) – it did take me longer than 5 minutes (probably 20 min), but it was so easy and the husband loved it!
I picked up this super cute and comfy sweatshirt from Target earlier this week. It has a Spiritual Gangster look to it and I live in yoga pants and sweatshirts right now, so I had to have it. The best part – I got it fo’ free! Do you guys know how to get and “roll” Target gift cards? Should I include that in one of my upcoming budget blog posts?
Simple As That
I found this blogger recently and I love her parenting advice! I watcher her last Facebook Live about entitlement, giving children an allowance, how to get your kids help with chores, how to teach your kids about money, and so much more. Max is still too young to implement any of her tools and techniques, but this would be a great listen for those of you with toddlers or grade schoolers.
Have a great Friday, friends! Ps – if you have a moment, comment below with the types of things you like reading on the blog. It helps me to know that I’m writing about things you actually want to read! xoxo
