Happy Sunday!

With my goal of unplugging in mind I’m just quickly popping in to share some of my favourite posts of the week. I’m hopefully out and about again hiking the trails down at my parents today. See you tomorrow for a marvelous start into the week!

    I love that you included that post by Arman! I’d read Khushboo’s and and Davida’s but not that one! So enlightening! I swear I can’t help but think that all guys think about is beer and sports…it seems like every guy out there can just eat whatever they want without a thought/stress in the world. It’s hard to imagine them seeing things the way we females do sometimes!

    Love the other links too! I just checked out the 21 kitchen tips when I saw it on Amanda’s blog earlier this weekend. I already knew a lot of them, but a few I’m going to have to start using! And the toys? Awesome! But I’m with you, I LOVED legos! I’m actually still a little sad that I got rid of them all those years ago! Our little secret, but I do still have my Barbie dolls! 😉

    And YES! I’ve got to make Sarah’s kabocha pudding! I also want to make Sarena’s custard! Have you seen it?

      Reading Arman’s post was some kind of wake-up moment for me, too. I’d known some guys were struggling, too, but not how diversified and well-hidden behind ‘normal’ behaviours the disorders could be. It made me think a lot.
      Your secret is well-kept with this girl having her whole Barbie collection still stored at her parents’, too :). Just imagine how many childhood memories we’d throw away if we got rid of them. No, it’s not going to happen anytime soon – unless my mum decides to …
      Thanks for reminding me of Sarena’s custard again. I even have an idea on how to veganize it and now that you mentioned it that’ll have to happen soon. Or at least once I can track down some more kabocha – not an easy task around here right now.
