My Finds Friday + A Giveaway

Happy Friday!

Oh man am I happy it’s Friday! I’ve missed being around here and am hoping to get some blogging done over the weekend. All week long, I’ve been reading some really great posts and wishing I had more than a moment to blog. Alas, I find time as I can and I have a few minutes now, so here I am.

It’s been a busy week, mostly because of packing and getting things done around the house. Work was busy, but it was good busy and made the week fly. Can you believe it – after this weekend, there is only 2 more weekends until we move!!! I cannot believe that!!!

Anyhow…. On with My Finds Friday.



Top Three Blog Articles I’m Lovin’

Top Video of the Week

I love Jimmy Fallon and I love Idina Menzel, so them singing the song from Frozen together made my heart go pitter patter.

Top Recipe of the Week

I’m pretty smitten with the idea of this Spinach & Kale Goat Cheese Pizza. The pictures of it look simply mouth water, but I know how much I love goat cheese, so there is no question on whether this would be yummy or not.

Top Workout of the Week

This week I’m sharing a post from one of my favorite bloggers, Janice from Fitness Cheerleader. Her post isn’t about a specific workout, but it is 5 REAL life tips for fitting fitness into your day. This is constantly one of my biggest challenges, her tips really gave me some insight, so I highly recommend you check them out.

And finally… That Giveaway!

Chelsea from the blog Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles is turning 24 today! Yahoo! Happy birthday, chica! To help herself celebrate, she is giving away a $110 gift card to Target, and I’m one of the lucky ladies participating in the giveaway. You can enter using the rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!

Happy My Finds Friday!


Who else besides me is super excited to be here again? At Friday, that is. I can’t even say it was a bad week, I just love the weekends so much. I love spending the time with my family, even if we’ll be spending most of it packing. 🙂 Tomorrow is also Super Saturday at Sears, so we’ll be spending part of our afternoon at Sears buying a new washer and dryer for our new home. I’m actually really psyched about this! I’ve never owned my own washer and dryer and for some reason I feel really grown-up going out to buy a set.

So what’s on our agenda for the weekend? Not much. We’ll be packing, going to Sears (as mentioned above) and then grocery shopping on Sunday. Despite the packing, it should be a pretty restful weekend… love those!

Now – Time for My Finds Friday!

Top Three Blog Articles I’m Lovin’

  • Emmett’s a pretty active toddler, flying from one activity to the next, but he doesn’t seem to be too out of control. However, one day he may need a break and a chance to calm down, this “Calm Down” jar by Daily Mom is a fantastic idea. One I will be keeping in my back pocket for the future.
  • It’s not secret around these parts that I struggle with my eating. Part of the problem is my all or nothing mentality, in this article on Science-Based Medicine, it talks about the book The Diet Fix, and the logic behind it. There are no gimics or quick fixes (which we all know), but there is also no reason to cut certain foods out if you don’t have negative effects from them. This is definitely a book I will be looking into.
  • In the same vain, this article on Mind, Body, Green, discusses the phases in which you can completely eliminate sugar from your diet. It’s a quick read and very comprehensive.

Top Video of the Week

A friend of mine shared this video with me earlier in the week and the end had me crying, I was laughing so hard.

Top Recipe of The Week

This delicious Paleo breakfast casserole is something you should make this weekend. I made it Sunday and split it up and took it all week long. Super delicious! It tasted great with some hot sauce sprinkled on top, as well.

Top Workout of the Week

Okay, this isn’t a specific workout, but it is a workout timer that has shown to be very effective over the last couple of weeks. Twice a day a few of my co-workers and I have been meeting to do a certain exercise in the Tabata Format, and this app, Tabata-Timer is awesome! It works perfectly and is so simple to use. I recommend you download it and go down some Tabatas right now!

My Finds Friday – Great Finds From Around the Web

Oh hey! It’s My Finds Friday!

I’m so excited that it’s Friday! This weekend is shaping up to be a great one, filled with loads of couch and snuggle time. I don’t have to work this weekend, most of my chores are already done (Yay! Weekly Wishes), and it’s cold. What better way to beat the cold then to curl up on the couch with THE cutest boy around, and THE most handsome of husbands?


And now (drumroll please) My Finds Friday!

Alright folks, that’s about does it for this week! Check out the links above and share the LOVE!

What are some of the amazing finds you came across over the past week?

My Finds Friday – Great Finds from Around the Web

Oh yes! It’s Friday and that means it’s My Finds Friday time!

Hi everybody! I’m super excited to be here again, at Friday that is. 🙂 Weekends are always welcomed around here, but it was a pretty good week at work. The busyness continues, but I’m slowly but surely learning how to manage it without causing myself and unneeded level of stress. It feels great to get to this point!

Before I get into My Finds Friday, I wanted to tell you about our first Parent-Teacher Conference yesterday. I realize Emmett is only (almost) 18 months old, and P/T Conferences may seem unnecessary, but I really wanted to go and meet his teacher 1 on 1. Plus, I know they usually share the kid’s art work, and who doesn’t want to see that? It was so much fun! I got to meet his teacher (she’s so great), see his artwork, and she shared his portfolio checklist. This checklist is just something they use to gauge whether kids are developing as they should. There’s no super specific timeline, but it’s good to notice something that’s not occurring, so that you can intervene with help as needed. Anyway, I’m pleased to share that Emmett is doing excellent! He has already met, or surpassed almost every milestone for his age level and he just moved up to this room on January second. I’m such a proud momma!!!


Now, with a huge smile on my face, let’s get to My Finds Friday

  •  This week I came across a really odd (to me) post. This soon-to-be mother writes about how her doctor judged her for wanting to have sex while pregnant. At first glance, you’d likely agree that a doctor shouldn’t judge you for anything, but then as you read the article you find out that there is a health reason for why the woman was advised not to have sex while pregnant. I agree with the woman, in that I don’t think having a child should define you. You don’t have to JUST be a mother, but I disagree at putting your unborn child’s life at risk for any reason. Anyway, check it out – it’s a great read!
  • Next up is an interesting little article on rules that French children know, but American children do not. It gave me something to think about, and there are some really good ideas.
  • I follow Tony Posnanski on Facebook, he’s constantly posting things that make me think, or that are motivational to get my butt moving. Then he shared a link to an article he wrote in November and I was hooked! It’s titled, I Have the Disease Known as ‘Obesity,’ he shares his real-life struggle with obesity and how it never truly goes away. I really love the stuff he writes.
  • We’re still in January and a lot of us are still trying really hard to stick to our intentions. Our Three Peas has a great article on simple ways to keep your house organized.
  • 5 Things Health People Do Everyday Before Work – is a great article with ideas on a few things you can add into your daily morning routine to make you feel your best.

So, I think that about does it for this week’s My Finds Friday. Be sure to share your finds, and link them up below!

My Finds Friday – The Year in Review

Today I’m sharing Baby Doodah’s Year in Review.

Happy Friday everyone!

Is anyone else kind of, sort of glad that the holidays are over, or is that just me? I do enjoy the holidays, the warm fuzzy feelings and the wonderful traditions we’re making with Emmett, but I am a creature of habit and I’m missing my routine. I’m looking forward to getting some extra down time and I’m sure my bank account could use a holiday break too. HAHA I really don’t mean this to be negative, we had a nice holiday season, but I do enjoy not having anything to worry about in the evenings, other then spending time with my family and blogging (my current two favorite things).

Anyhow, this is my first My Finds Friday of the new year, and I’m going to do things a bit differently today. I’m going to share Baby Doodah’s year in review, and highlight some of my most popular or most favorite posts of the past year. So buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy ride BACK IN TIME! (Not really, just being really goofy.)

My Finds Friday

TGIFF! Yes, two Fs for, Finds Friday. 🙂

Oh what a week it has been! Work life is beyond busy, which makes home life fly by. We get home, after 6 and then it’s dinner, bath and bed. I wish there was some magic secret to gain more time in the day, other than giving up sleep, I just can’t do that. Regardless of how busy life is, life is good and my family is amazing. I make sure to spend every single minute that I have with my guys, present and completely involved with them. They make my world!

Hey everyone, it’s My Finds Friday, time!

Sorry I’ve been absent for a few days, this time of year gets so busy and by the time the evening rolls around, I’m pooped and ready for bed.

This week’s My Finds Friday will be a brief one, I’m really tired and all I can think about is my bed. Hopefully I’ll have time over the weekend to fill you in on all that has occurred with life lately.
