Love Announcements

It's about time I have some Love Announcements around here!!

These are just things I love or things I want to share.

-Sila is OBSESSED with this elephant rope toy that we brought for her. We're calling it Ellie. via the Jax & Bones collection on Amazon.

-Danny and I came home late from a date night movie recently and wanted a treat. THIS CHOCOLATE MILK SHAKE freaking hit the spot! Totally healthy, too. We had it again the next day for breakfast. And then again, and again. via The Spunky Coconut

-7 countries where Americans can study at universities FOR FREE (I'd love to go to any of them.) via Washington Post.

-My friend, Linsey Laidlaw, is a designer AND a peg board genius. Women all over Brooklyn were asking her how she did her peg board, so she wrote a post about it with step by step instructions. She even inspired my sister and I to do some pegboards for the children while I was in Brooklyn and it was SO gratifying. It literally transformed their apartment! :) Add peg boards to your list for 2015! More like...DO IT THIS WEEKEND! [See my niece's new pegboard here. And yes, follow us over there on Facebook while you're at it :) And pin the crap out of Linsey's peg board because it is life changing, I tell you!]

-Here is a better way to introduce your friends! I like this a lot.

-One of our awesome readers runs a site all about women finding meaningful work. It's called Happy and Heart Working. I love her interviews with women who are working and happy. So inspiring. I think we can't get enough of this message. (Growing up, the only women I knew who worked were doing so out of desperation. I never got the impression that they were doing meaningful work nor loving their low paying jobs.)

-Wouldn't it be great to have more honesty in dating? Yes, PLEASE. Here are 15 Ways to Put an End to the Dating Game!

-I want to shop at this grocery store in Berlin - - they don't have ANY packaging!!

Happy Weekend!!

(And thanks for all the kind notes this week. It's been a fun week of blogging. :)
