Hey all! Here’s my weekly wrap-up, highlighting what I’ve been up to in the blog world this week.

On Monday, I stumbled down memory lane with my post How My Life Has Changed Since College.

I was thrilled and honored to guest post with my friend Katia of IAMTHEMILK on Thursday. She has a new series on infertility and miscarriage. For those who have experienced pregnancy loss, and even those who haven’t, you may want to check out What I Really Lost When I Miscarried.


I co-hosted Finish the Sentence Friday again; the theme was “I thought I was so cool when I…” and I chose to write about potty-training. Because I’m just that cool. Read Why I’m Not Ready to Potty Train My Toddler.

I’m not gonna lie, y’all: It was a rough week IRL. (I’m using the techno-term for “in real life” because I think it makes me sound cooler.)

I am taking a tiny blog break next week to focus on some other projects (like my filthy house and piles of laundry, among other things). Thanks to the convenience of pre-scheduled posts, I will still be posting next week, but fellow bloggers, don’t be dismayed when you don’t see me around as much next week. I promise I’ll be back commenting by the end of the week! I may not reply to comments as much next week, but I will definitely be reading them- please know how much I appreciate all your comments!

Stop by Monday for a HerStories post that I am beyond excited about from my friend Kate at Can I Get Another Bottle of Whine? She is so funny, and her post is beautiful. I will be guest posting with the talented Meredith of The Mom of the Year (tell me you don’t want to check that out!) as well. My daughter Izzy will be featured next week, too, and I’ll be back at it for Finish the Sentence Friday!

Have a great weekend!
