Weekend Reading: March 5, 2010

baby girl
Not much bigger than a Bitty Baby

It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since I gave birth to this tiny, spiky-haired baby girl. Although I love the little girl she has become, it seems like it happened overnight, despite my protests, and I’ll admit I was a little teary-eyed this morning while going through pictures from her first few months!

This weekend is crunch time as we finish the book manuscript. It will be a relief to mail it off to our editor next week!

Have you seen the cool contest that Plan to Eat is holding each week on The Plan to Eat Blog? They’re cooking through Jamie Oliver’s cookbook, and if you try a recipe they’ve posted and leave a comment on that post, you could win a 1-year subscription to Plan to Eat!

Below are some of my favorite posts from the 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!
