Hey there sleepy head!
How’s you’re weekend going so far? Hopefully you’re reading through this in your pajamas with a nice cup of tea snuggled up on the couch! That’s sounds amazing, doesn’t it?!?!
I came across a lot of interesting reads this week that I wanted to share with you. There were a lot of really delicious easy to make recipes that I found this week that I can’t wait to check out! I also rediscovered an upper body workout that I used to do a few months ago, so I included that in here for you too! Hopefully you find some inspiration to cook, sweat or think something different than you normally would because of these posts. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
