Weekend Reading: August 6, 2011

sweet toddler girl
our sweet almost-2 year old!

It’s hard to believe that our “baby girl” is going to be 2 next month. Although a tiny part of me is sad, I’m really enjoying this stage and wouldn’t trade it for anything. In general, she’s happier than she was as a baby, and she’s talking up a storm, cracking jokes and showing off her personality more than ever. (And yes, that mildly disgusted look in the photo above pretty much sums up her take on life, LOL!)

In other news, if you follow us on Twitter, Pinterest or StumbleUpon, you’ll notice that the usernames have all been changed from mandiehman to lifeyourway (or @life_yourway on Twitter). As the network grows, it’s not just “my” blog anymore, so this seemed the most logical, although I’ll still be the person primarily behind these accounts. If you were already following me on any of these sites, you’ll still be following the new username; if you’re not, I’d love to connect with you!

We were also excited to have our home featured on Apartment Therapy this week. If you’re a regular Life Your Way reader, you’ve probably seen pictures of our home before, but there may be a few more fun facts in the post that you didn’t know!

Here are some of my favorite posts from around the blogosphere this week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think. You’ll find new posts all week long!
