Weekend Reading

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Welcome to the weekend friends! I’m so looking forward to getting more sleep tomorrow, I’ve been so exhausted because of this fitness boot camp I’ve been doing and it is kicking my butt! I find myself crawling into bed extra early just to recover, oh to have the energy I had in my twenties…

I spent a few hours doing research on kitchens this week, we have not one but two to tackle this fall, one at the Nevada house and a second for Matt’s late grandmother’s small home which needs to be sold but the kitchen is dated and in need of upgrades. Decisions decisions!! I’ll have more to share on both soon.

Here are some favorite links from the week!
