Weekend Links: Cuatro


We are swinging into the weekend and I realize that I have totally dropped the ball on this series. I am so behind on posts. I must have 10 half-written blog posts, but I am trying so hard to take the pressure off myself and listen to what I need right now in life, which is a lot of rest. 

Remember that in these Weekend Links posts, there will always be a 'Question of the Week'.  If you respond to it in the comments below you will be in the running to win something from me that I will mail to you as a token of my appreciation for reading the blog. 

Here we go!

1 // Have you guys heard of these energy bars? Each bar has 3 egg whites, dates, nuts and natural ingredients like 100% cacao or blueberries. They are gluten-free and there is absolutely no B.S. (it even says no B.S. on their label). I am eating them up like hotcakes. I am obsessed with Chocolate Sea Salt flavor!

2 // We are in full swing of planning out our garden. Last year, Winter helped plant almost every single seed and we hope this year is no exception. I am loving this combination for one of my flower beds. Astilbe is one of my favorite flowers!

3 // I am craving summer and cannot help but to keep an eye out for some really awesome summer shoes. I am currently loving these metallic Birkenstocks and these colorful hand-crocheted boho-chic sandals. 

4 // Here is an interesting article titled: 4 Strategies for Mindful Parenting.

5 // I am really looking into trying a different type of facial. Has anyone had any luck with HydraFacials

6 // Winter is potty-trained now (Yeah!) which means we spend a lot of time washing our hands at the sink. She is obsessed with running water and I want to give her a way to play without wasting so much water. I found this bath toy on Amazon and think it might be perfect for her and it won't waste water!

7 // I used to swim a lot in high school and college. I just signed up for a lap swim class starting in April and I am so excited. I need to get a swimsuit that can function for fun and for lap swimming. I am torn between this one and this one. 

8 // I am still a firm believer in setting daily intentions. I just ordered these cards to help me come up with some new ideas. 

9 // I keep hearing about this movie called Wonder. Has anyone watched it?!

10 // Question of the Week: If you could pray and/or send good vibes to one person right now, who it would be and why?

My answer: My dear friend, Nikki. She is currently 32 weeks pregnant and in the hospital on bed rest. I just keep praying her little bean keeps cooking and that she knows how strong she is. She has a toddler at home and I know she misses her terribly.
