Weekend Reading: December 17, 2011


I’ve had so much fun focusing on my family the last week. We’ve done a lot of fun advent activities, caught up on some house projects and had a few play dates (plus a mom’s night out, woohoo!). I love my job, but it’s been great to be able to focus on the girls without the pressure of to-do lists and deadlines, and next week promises more of the same!

Here are some of my favorite posts from 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!
