Friday Favorites: The Links I Love – April 1, 2016

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic week! Mine was pretty great, with a lot of focus on creating some new jewelry and writing for the blog 🙂 Add in the warmer temperatures here in Iowa and I am one happy blogger! And to add to the happiness, here are the links I love this week! But first, my favorite picture from the week. I just can’t get enough of Crystal being cute 🙂

Unsurpassable Worth from A Pinch of Yum – STOP. READ THIS. I’m serious. It’s long, it’s heartbreaking, it’s heartwarming, and it needs to be read. If you only pick one thing to read off of this list, read this. This is a story from Lindsay about their time in the Philippines, a wonderful orphanage there and the good work they are doing, and a blast, 5-day fundraiser (starting March 30) to allow this orphanage to save more lives. And if you head over and check out the hero roster, you can find my hero listed there too!

Hello, We Are Happy from Sprinkle of Glitter – This has been a blog I have loved for a long time and she took a hiatus a while back. Now she’s back! I love how she talks about taking a break to focus on the important things in her life, how her life is now and, most importantly, that she is truly happy now.

How I Map Out a Successful Week from Cupcakes and Cashmere – As you know, I find planning to be really important! I love this look into how someone else plans out their week. I like keeping an eye out for little tips and tricks that I can use in my own planning, and this one definitely has a few!


Slow Cooker Philly Cheesesteaks from The Recipe Critic


Taking your blog to the next level: 100 resources for bloggers by Thirteen Thoughts – I usually don’t list a post that is mostly links to other posts, but I think this one has a bunch of great resources listed. If you are looking to revitalize or improve your current blog, or even start your first one, this has what you need! I will definitely be saving this to refer back to!

Why I Feel So Lost With Blogging Right Now from Dizzy Brunette3 – A real and honest look at how much of a struggle blogging can be sometimes. Great read.

Home and Decor:

Bedroom Refresh from House Tweaking – Love this! You all know I’ve been especially focused on bedroom stuff, as we are still remodeling the bedroom. This one has some great inspiration

My Renovation Mistakes from A Beautiful Mess – This was a fun read, plus gave me a few things to keep in mind for the future!

That’s it for the links I love this week! I know it wasn’t a huge list this week. I had a really busy week. I hope to have a few more links than this next time!
