It's the {holiday} weekend!

(last year's Labor Day lake trip)




 Oh heyyyy long weekend! We're headed to the lake this weekend with family and only have the essentials on our to-do list {you know- napping, pontooning, sun bathing, campfire-ing, eating}. I. Can't. Wait. This weekend sort of feels like the last hurrah before we settle into Fall and new {much needed} routines. And the last little getaway before our schedules fill up and baby number two comes! So I'm being extra intentional about truly resting and enjoying it.
  Our internet has been terrible again this week {I'm looking at you, Comcast.} and our 15+ outages each day have meant that pile of blog posts meant for the past few days are sitting unpublished. I'm crossing my fingers the problem will be fixed for good soon {but not holding my breath...}. So maybe you'll see more from me around these parts next week! But maybe not... Spoiler alert: Caleb's walking!

But in the meantime, here's what I'm loving from around the interwebs this week. Way better than anything I would have written anyway :)

//I know I'm late to the game, but I just discovered Jen Hatmaker and love her. She wrote a letter to college freshman girls and it's awesome.

//Have you heard of this store? My sister has been telling me about it forever, and I just made it in this week. I'm in love! Bonus? They sell my favorite candle.

//Love love love these words from Jess about taking yourself out of the running. Let's all follow her lead, ok?

//I've gotten into this podcast lately. Its perfect for listening to while I'm driving or just cleaning around the house. 

//You guys. Have you started your Christmas shopping? {I have!!!} If you're looking for some amazing and meaningful gifts- you HAVE to check out these fun September deals!
