Saturday Small Talk

Yay Saturday! After days and days and days of cloudy, rainy weather, the sun is shining again in the northland. I’m thrilled. It’s amazing what just seeing the sun does to elevate your mood.

Mom, baby sisters, and I are in the Upper Peninsula this weekend. Mom is running a half marathon, I’m doing the 10K, and Naomi plans to do the 5K. Abby just had knee surgery, so she’s going to be our cheerleader extraordinaire. Wish me luck–I’m hoping to PR.

The internet, as always, has offered a wealth of random and interesting reads the last couple of weeks. Enjoy!

After swearing I would never get an e-reader, I got a kindle, and I really like it. Apparently, though, reading a real book is still better for your brain than reading a screen.

Gilmore Girls is on Netflix! I don’t have Netflix, but if I did, I’d be stoked. Ever wonder, “Where are they now?

Iowa Girl Eats shared 20 of her favorite fall recipes. Brown Eyed Baker listed 14 of her favorite pumpkin recipes.

Want some inspiration to get out of the house? Here are 50 fun, cheap date ideas for fall. Take your boyfriend, spouse, friend, and/or dog, and make something happen!

Michael Hyatt writes about the 7 benefits of keeping a daily journal. I firmly believe in journaling, but definitely do not do so daily. I might have to give it a try!

From Kevin DeYoung: What We Won’t Regret. If you’re looking for a convicting read by this author, check out Crazy Busy. It’s well worth the $10 price tag (or the $7 kindle price, if you don’t care about your brain).

Enjoy your weekend, friends!

  1. Uh…..you should get Netflix. How do you not have Netflix? Then again, you and Bob clearly waste less time than Mark and I do. Once you get it and watch all of Gilmore Girls, watch Friday Night Lights. *THE BEST*
