mid-week round-up

Hello from Louisiana! Chet and I are spending the next few days in his hometown. We were happy to escape Miami for a few days (Spring Break is pretty lit for those traveling in but not so much for those who always reside there, if ya catch my drift!) Today, we’ve already eaten here and seen some art by an acclaimed animator. But I wanted to pop on and say “Hi!” and post a few links for your Wednesday. Hope y’all are having a great week, now get to clickin’…

mid-week round-up

Hi friends! I’m back from Kentucky! I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks since I last posted. Time flies! That means it’s time for another round-up of links…but first, let me catch you up. When we last spoke I was flying to Lexington for a much-needed visit with my Mom. We managed to pack in a lot of fun (and a lot of food!) in my quick trip. Then, she drove me down to Bowling Green. I spent the next 9 days working at the Western Kentucky University – Summer Forensics Institute in the Original Oratory lab. The lab was an absolute blast and we had a wonderful group of students who worked super hard. And in between coaching and editing speeches, I got to hang out with the other folks working at the institute…who just happen to be some of my favorite folks in the whole dang world!!! We spent every evening in fits of laughter. After a couple uneventful flights, I made my return to Miami. (Bienvenidos a Miami!) It was a great trip but I’m happy to be back with Chet and Wink!!

Women of the Web: Ashley, Crystal and Erin!

collagewtext

It’s no secret that I love blogs. There are plenty of web presences I turn to for inspiration, information and advice. These interweb relationships are almost always with women–smart, strong, beautiful ladies who help keep me up to date, looking put together, eating well and laughing…all with a few clicks of my laptop. Today I’d like to share just a few women of the web I come back to again and again.

Ashley of {never} homemaker…

ashley

She writes about healthy recipes and running (and cross-training) tips here. After the birth of her adorable daughter Ada she started a second blog to cover more aspects of her family life. She makes a mean pizza, educates readers on what runners should be eating, and has tons of great posts for new runners in general.

Crystal of MoneySavingMom…

Crystal

She writes about living frugally, organization and scoring deals (couponing, freebies, etc) here. If you have a Kindle or e-reader, her round-ups of the weeks FREE e-books are worth checking out. This post set me on the right path to a cheaper grocery bill by spending a few weeks making short term sacrifices. And she has tons of income earning ideas and how-to’s for blogging for profit. Of course, you may be wondering why I; a single, liberal, non-churchy gal, would be turning to this Christian Mom blogger as one of my go-to’s. Well, the answer is simple–SHE HAS SAVED ME MONEY. And I love saving money. If you’re trying to cut costs or make the commitment to budget-livin’, I would absolutely recommend turning to blogs like these; home-schoolin’, bible quotin’, budgetistas…these SAHM’s get a bad rap but they’ve made saving money their full time jobs. Haters gonna hate but I’m addicted to Christian Mom bloggers. : )

Erin of Bad Yogi…

She takes a fun, non-judgmental approach to yoga here. She also contributes stellar content to my favorite yoga site. She teaches this fantastic 30-day yoga challenge in which web followers everywhere fell in love with her yoga teaching style! ❤ (me included.) Her self-declared “bad yogi” style is easily adoptable and you can even purchase her super cute yoga tank top (WANT). I value her honesty.

I hope you check these gorgeous ladies out and incorporate them into your own web rotation. I’d love to share more inspirational “women of the web” in future posts, if y’all would like. Who is providing you with internet inspiration these days? I’d love to hear! Thanks to Erin, Crystal and Ashley for providing such ride or die web presences in my life. ❤
