Weekend Reads


Looking for a way to squeeze exercise into your busy schedule? The New York Times is offering a free 7-minute workout App. I am excited to give it a try. I enjoy walking primarily for exercise, but this would be helpful on busy days, or when I would like to get in a little extra exercise. Which will probably be necessary in the near future…

Because fall has finally hit Boston (todays high was in the 50’s) which makes you want to cuddle under warm blankets and eat your favorite comfort foods. Speaking of comforting foods, I pulled out our dutch oven today and literally blew off the dust. My girls cheered when they realized I was making homemade stew, mmm. It WAS good. Here is a vegetarian spicy pumpkin stew I’d like to give a try this fall season. And a conversion chart, because the recipe is in metric ;).

Sleeping Tourist

I have advocated this VERY thing as being healthy on ALE. Here’s more evidence in favor. I would love to be able to work one in more often. Perhaps when my kids are older!?

Plaid Dress

I was browsing around Etsy and found this cute dress made by Pyne & Smith. Isn’t it just adorable? I could totally see myself wearing it at the park with the girls or running errands in our Boston neighborhood. For cooler days, I’d pair it with a jacket and tights or leggings. Booties would be cute too. Love.

My sister watched this movie on Netflix and said it was so, so good. She has such a big heart for adoption –  she has for a long time. Brance and I are planning on watching it this weekend!

With love, Lauren
