Friday Favorites from Silicon Valley Mommy (April 5, 2013)

Hello Everyone!  My kids have been on Spring break this past week, and it’s been AWESOME because we haven’t done much.  Lots of lazy days around the house in our PJ’s just chilling.  The house is a little bit messier that usual since the kids have been home all week, but it’s been so nice not dealing with the usual rushing & hustle & bustle!

I haven’t had too much time on the computer this week (also nice for a change), but I did find a few things that were my favorites…

Enjoy!

xoxo,

Jen

1) Favorite Article of the Week!
These Are The Lines Of A Story by Mary Martin Weins

Pregnant with #2

A pic of me pregnant with baby #2, as my own skin stretches & stretches.

 

My Absolute FAVORITE of the week was discovering this beautiful article titled These Are The Lines Of A Story, written by Mary Martin Weins from The Actual Pastor’s Blog.  It’s such a well written piece on how our body changes after having babies and explaining that to our kids.  Ladies — this is truly a MUST read.  It gave my chills from head to toe!  You can view the article HERE.

 

2) Favorite List of the Week!
15 Ways to Stay Married for 15 Years by Katie Ostoich

Quincy and I going out for our 14 Year Anniversary.  9-19-2012

I loved this list, titled 15 Ways to Stay Married for 15 Years written by Katie Ostoich on the Girls Guide To blog.  I know that we’ve all read a million of these “how to” lists, but I liked this one because it has real, honest, legit suggestions.  I am coming up on my 15 year anniversary (in September!) and could definitely do a better job on some of these.  (No body is perfect! )

 

3) Favorite Website Discovery
Sprout Robot at www.sproutrobot.com

So I’ve been beginning to kind of, sort of, maybe possibly in the near future thinking about potentially starting to maybe grow my own fruits and veggies.  It seems like a HUGE feat for a gardening virgin like me, but sounds kind of exciting as well.  There is just so much to know!  Anyway, I came across this site that tells you WHAT to plant and WHEN for your particular area, which takes care of the WHERE!  Enter in your own zip code and you’ll see what to plant NOW for your area!

 

4) Favorite SALE
Kids Uggs Online at Nordstrom – 40% off!

Kids Uggs Currently On Sale at Nordstroms 40% off!

Uggs almost NEVER go on sale, so I was excited to see this 40% off.  My kids love wearing their UGGS in the colder seasons, so I’m thinking about buying them one or two sizes up for next year.  Hmmmm…..
