The Week

The Week: January 16, 2015

The temperature finally inched above freezing this week and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Don’t get me wrong, winter has it’s appeal. I just prefer to be able to venture outside without a full face mask.

While it lasts, I’ll be enjoying the warmer weather with outdoor runs and maybe even a weekend adventure or two. In the meantime, here are my favorite bits of Internet from this week…

The Week: January 9, 2015

I’ve spent a lot of time this week getting organized (with the help of my shiny new Simplified Planner) and making plans for the coming year. And while I’m not even close to having it all figured out, I’ve got a lot of ideas bouncing around my overcrowded brain. In the meantime, here are my favorite bits of Internet from this week…

The Week: January 2, 2015

Along with it being the first Friday of 2015, it’s also my 24th birthday. And while I don’t have anything too exciting planned in the way of celebrations, I’m really lucky to be surrounded by people who endlessly support me, go out of their way for me and continuously make me laugh…

The Week: December 19, 2014

If there’s one thing I love about the holiday season, it’s gift guides—you may or may not have noticed that this week—regardless of how frivolous or excessive some of them may be. So in the spirit of the season, I decided to include a few of my favorite gift guides from around the web in addition to my favorite bits of Internet from this week…

The Week: December 5, 2014

To be totally candid, this week has pretty much kicked my ass. It’s felt exhausting and emotionally taxing and cold in so many ways that I honestly just want to spend the weekend in my bed. And I just might.

In the meantime, here are my favorite bits of Internet from the last week…

The Week: November 28, 2014

My brain has been whirring a million miles an hour lately and while it’s energizing to have so many ideas and be working on so much, it’s also fairly exhausting. So I’m taking a weekend off to recharge with a stack of books I’ve been meaning to read, a puppy curled at my feet and probably gratuitous amounts of wine and coffee…

The Week: November 21, 2014

This has been a baking-heavy week for me. Something about the colder weather and lots of time spent enjoying good food with good people is starting to get me in a festive spirit. And based on how packed my schedule is the next few weeks, I think it’s safe to say the holidays are here…

The Week: November 14, 2014

We had our first dusting of snow this week in Des Moines, and while I was mildly disappointed that there hasn’t been more of it yet, I’m in no real rush to commit to a full-on relationship with my parka just yet. That doesn’t mean I can’t start enjoying some tiny doses of holiday spirit though… While I spend the weekend curled up with a book and some hot chocolate, here are my favorite bits of Internet from this past week…

The Week: November 7, 2014

Despite our “extra” hour from Daylight Savings Time, lately it seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything squared away. This weekend I’ll be attempting to relax—and hopefully hit up a few roadside attractions—with a trip to Minneapolis to see some old friends. In the meantime, here are my favorite bits of Internet from this week…

The Week: October 31, 2014

I can’t believe October is already over—it feels like Labor Day was just a blink ago. And while I don’t have any crazy Halloween plans, I’ve been enjoying some of my favorite seasonal candy (hello, Reese’s pumpkins) in anticipation of the holiday. While I’m out galavanting with ghouls, here are my favorite bits of Internet from this week…
