Links & Things

We finally got our first taste of spring weather this week – it reached nearly 70 F for a couple days, which resulted in reading outside on the deck (I finished two books so far this week!) and a few walks with Finn.

On the agenda this weekend is (maybe) checking out our first BodyPump class, heading to the outlet mall in Kenosha, Wis., and dinner with neighbors Saturday night. I’m looking forward to being out and continuing to enjoy the gorgeous sunshine!

Favorite links:

| I absolutely loved Maya’s post this week about embracing the anti-hustle – I think we all need to indulge ourselves a bit in this philosophy. 
| Shakespeare and Austen fans rejoice – a new exhibit is coming to town this summer and features that white shirt that made us all swoon over Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy.
| I admire Amanda’s honesty and transparency while discussing her ongoing struggle with negative body image
| Girl Scout Cookies + Leonardo DiCaprio = GOLD. These girls were genius with their selling strategy.
Have a fantastic weekend!
Linking up with Amanda

    Love how creative those Girl Scouts were, I’m sure Leo would have approved, too! One of these days I’ll have to watch the Colin Firth version of Pride & Prejudice to see what had everyone swooning. Hope you have a good weekend, sounds like a fun one is planned!

    Body Pump is great! But you’re always SO sore the day after even if you take the class every week. Have a good weekend 🙂

    I hope you have a great weekend–I’ve heard good things about Body Pump from a few friends who take the classes but haven’t ever taken a class myself-let us know how you like it if you end up going.
    Love some nice weather where you can read out on the deck–I did a little bit of that yesterday afternoon to unwind and it was glorious! 🙂

  • #Bookworms, rejoice! This is our kinda day! 📚 On #WorldBookDay, I simply want to say thank you to all authors. Your characters, stories and words change my life daily, and I can’t imagine a life without them. Happy reading to all! #bookstagram

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
