Good Reads: Hey, Cupcake!


What I’ve been reading this week:

Use the Good Stuff from Simple Mom. (Absolutely agree. Bonus! When you give yourself permission to use the good stuff, you no longer have to keep the junky stuff around.)

You know how it goes… Monday’s list starts with five things. Do three and carry over two to Tuesday. Friday your list has twenty things on it. Want to fix that? Simplifying Your To Do List from Mom Advice

Intentional Cleaning from Steady Mom – How to clean your house but let go of the perfectionism so you don’t spend all day on it.

    We just had a cupcake last week (red velvet). We were in Austin for my son’s college orientation. I love Austin!

    there were great links. when i was a teenager, i read erma bombeck’s book mentioned on use the good stuff and took away the same lesson: don’t save things. i’ve taken it to heart and will pull out the china on a random tuesday, don’t keep things in their boxes to never use, and remember to eat the expensive chocolate while it’s still good.

    i loved intentional cleaning, too. i picked my surfaces in my house to hide dirt on purpose. everything stays straight and orderly but i just need to clean when it looks dirty.

  4. I love your links. Thank-you so much for distracting me from the job at hand!!!

  5. I wanted to thank you for listing’s link. Even though we make a good living I noticed that we never had any money. Since using this user friendly system, for just a month we have found the waste.

    This is one of the reason I just love blogging ~ product/service recommendations!

    Thank you so much!

  6. I love that cupcake Airstream! It looks just like our Airstream! :) (Great links too!)
