As I mentioned in my post yesterday, we ended up spending last week at home instead of in Louisiana. Boo! However, I did manage to get in some solid beach-time, do a little retail therapy, and devour the book Big Little Lies. (Have you watched the HBO adaptation yet? So good!!!) I’ve also been a busy little craftin’ bee! I made a few wreaths for a friend’s upcoming wedding, along with some Easter decor for the apartment. So I guess our cancelled trip wasn’t a total wash! What have y’all been up to? I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday, and here are some links for you to enjoy today (or bookmark for later)…

Freezer meals are a total staple in my diet being on a student budget and all 🙂 Thanks for the link
Great on the pocketbook and SUCH a timesaver when you’re in the midst of exams, etc.
The stories from the almshouses are really interesting! I love looking back through history like that.
Sometimes spending time at home ain’t that bad. 🙂 I’ve been working too much lately. However, this week has some more fun things scheduled. Today I was doing a fine lunch collaboration with one great restaurant in Helsinki, tomorrow there will be dinner with relatives, Friday will be a day of which I’ll spend with my smoothie book project, Saturday will be working day but also a B-Day party of a friend of mine will be them. So, I assume this will be a good week! Have a wonderful Easter time Beth!
Sounds like you’ve got a solid few days planned! Thank you for the Easter wishes!! xoxo And I’d love to know more about your smoothie book project! Sounds like a cool endeavor.
I might post about it at some point later this year. I wish I could get it done published during next winter/spring if everything goes well. 🙂
What a great idea to create a list of links to things which interest, inspire and amuse you. Wonderful!
Thank you, Avril! I try to post a round-up of links every Wednesday. Feel free to come back and check it out again!! ❤
Cool links! and hope you have a great Easter! I have been working so much and need time for my blog and an outing! wish me luck hehe 😀
Good luck and Happy Easter! xoxo
Face massages! Such a great idea 🙂
Right?! It seems indulgent but I think it could be really beneficial.
I am looking for some good new podcasts to listen to. I will have to check these ones out.
Definitely! Let me know what you think if you do.
