Blogger Love v.4

As I mentioned last week, this was my last week of maternity leave and on Monday, I have to bid adieu to long days of playing, napping and feeding my baby boy. I am really thankful for my job, really. I have a supervisor who is totally supportive of working moms and wants to make my transition back as easy as possible and an employer who is doing seriously great things for the community. I could not be more blessed. This is what I keep reminding myself every single day when I inevitably break down and cry about leaving my sweet Charlie. If you're the praying type, they'd definitely be appreciated :)

Therefore, you may understand why I've been so noticeably absent this week. It's honestly a miracle that I managed to scrap together this week's favorite posts. But at least I can rest confident knowing that I provided some great reading material (even if it wasn't my own!)

All the Joys - Blogger Love

I'm Craving a Bump by Love, The Campbell's | Within a matter of days of popping out Charlie, Chuck and I began thinking about when we should plan for Baby Pep 2.0 (actually, Chuck may have even mentioned something about #2 while I was in labor. That went over real well). Erin's post pretty much sums up where my head has been lately.

How to Have Sex when You Have Babies by Scary Mommy | I'll let this one speak for itself.

Two Bachelorettes: "It's Not Ideal" by The Life of Bon | I've really gotten into The Bachelor this season, mostly for it's straight-up, ridiculousness, but I have to admit I was kind of sickened when they made the announcement about two girls "competing" to determine who would be the best wife. Seriously, what year is it?! Thankfully, Bon feels the same way.

Winter 2014 Book Challenge: Final Scoreboard by Semi-Charmed Kind of Life | This was my second time participating in Megan's reading challenges...and the second time I didn't finish. Womp, womp, womp. I'm going to go for Round 3 in May, though. Third time's the charm, right?

Any good posts to share this week?


  1. I'm not a huge fan of the bachelor series, but I did watch this last season because some friends would always get together and watch. I think having 2 is dumb. They're just trying to do something different to get people to watch, but it's kind of ridiculous!

  2. I'm on bed rest now so thank you for some good reads! I can never get into the bachelor, it always seems so cheesy to me but I may just have to watch it because I'm running out of shows ;)

  3. OMG- it's so cheesy! I never watched before this season, because I feel like these girls are single-handedly setting back our gender by about 50 years and the concept of a guy dating 20 girls at once is NOT romantic. But it's like a train wreck that I just can't look away from! Haha

    I just finished watching all the seasons of Gilmore Girls on Netflix, so I'm on the prowl for some new shows, too. Any recommendations?

  4. Yep- definitely a publicity thing and you could tell that both girls were soo not thrilled about it.
