Oh, oh, oh! All the things on my mind this week and ya’ll have been the most wonderful blog readers ever! The support I get out there in this virtual world is ah-mazing! And, yes, I’m excited. No real reason (other than a serious mood swing). I’m still trying to catch (what else is new) in this virtual world. So let’s get down to the nitty-gritty.
Holly over at Jack and Sally featured some weight loss bloggers that I’m going to be checking out. Some of them are newer bloggers so they need some blog support. But what brought my attention to the post was she started out saying that “Weight loss bloggers have just kind of taken over Blog Land.” This goes along with a theory I’m working on and while I’m not going to tell you what it is, I’m going to be doing some pop social psychology and will give results in January. Or I could be totally wrong and realize that my little theories have no real basis in reality. But I think I’m right. (FYI: my degree is in psychology but I have minors in sociology and business so this little experiment is on like donkey kong…my statistical analysis skills need a little workout).
I’ve been loving Carly’s post (and it’s not just because of her name. It is). She’s an awesome super personal trainer and as fit as s…I have no clue what has gotten into me this morning. This week she gave us three 15 minute workouts and the reminder that workouts don’t have to be long. Short is good. Check out her post for the other two. Repin or pin her pin. Let’s see it go viral. Pinning is loving and loving is pinning. It’s the new hippie.
Oh, the holiday season! Also known as the holiday spending. Let’s not do too much of that. Kimberly isn’t going to. Check out her post on Holiday Finance 101. Use your coupons. That is all.
I would say that all these young women who are smarter than me tick me off but they are so darn cute. And right. Like Brittnei. She recently wrote on how to find balance as a homemaker. We are all homemakers– some of us full-time, some of us single, some of working…- so these tips apply to everyone.
Leah over at Leah Inspired taught us how to make Handprint Lions with the kiddo’s little hands. I went so far as to post on Facebook and tag my daughter. Now I’m giving her another reminder. If I don’t see some little handprint lions by Christmas then I may have to do a boycott of the season.
It’s not too late to join up with Kristy at Runaway Bridal Planner for her Health & Fitness Holiday Giveaway Hop. A lot of other bloggers have already joined and it’s a great way to grow your blog. So hop on over to the hop. No poodle skirts required.
This week I got my FREE Kitchen Aid mixer. I have now decided to make my entire Thanksgiving dinner in it (not really. really).
I have not used it yet but I’m going to read all the directions and get busy! Now I’m saving up enough points for this Sony Cyber-shot Digital Camera….
I am sooo far away from getting it. I’m just hoping I can get enough points before it sells out. I know it’s not a real DSLR but it’s a baby step in the right direction.
What were your favorite reads this week? Do you have a Kitchen Aid mixer? What about a fancy camera?
