monday mixtape

i made you a mix tape of all my favorites this week!

While I fasted from blog-reading during Lent a lot of my blogging friends were doing some wayyy-fun stuff. I've been having fun catching up and thought you'd enjoy checking a few out for yourself.

My sister Kaley, with some help from her witty husband Wesley, has been cranking out one compelling post after another. Her posts mix the day-to-day antics of mothering a pre-schooler and an infant with her passion - - nee obsession - - with finding free money and living frugally. Some of my absolute favorite posts from the past couple of months?
  • Grieving
  • True Confessions of a Tired, Busy, Happy Mom (pure blogging genious, this post!)
  • How We Got Here, parts 1, 2 (featuring a lovely pic of yours truly) and 3 (this series tells the story of how Kaley and Wes have been able to live for the past year of Wes' unemployment without having to dip into their savings)
Living large on a limited budget is the motto for Wes and Kaley's newest online venture and TODAY is the grand opening of the new site: Cha-Ching on a Shoestring !!!

I promise this is not some sort of blogging-world-nepotism, but I have to give a shout out to my cousin and his wife Grant and Deb Perry for the highly excellent work they have been doing at their photography site. Check out their blog for photo samples from each of their projects. If nothing else, check out the wedding pictures from Pavrita and Nicholas' wedding. Absolutely. Gorgeous. (makes me want to get married again just so they can take our pictures!)
What a fun surprise to find a feature this week from Ithaca, NY!

I leave you on this rainy Monday with a livingpalm PSA. Loving wives do not allow their husbands to play street ball without protective eyewear.
This is Brian's eye. This is Brian's eye after a giant thumb from a large, beastly man chasing a loose ball tore right in through the upper eyelid.
'Nuff said.
