Five Thoughts for Friday

I am taking a break from recapping our Italy trip for some tidbits happening in my world.
1. As I mentioned previously, my brother is in town this week! Yay! We are headed to London for the weekend. What a lucky duck he's spending his spring break in Dublin and London!

2. At the recommendation of Jillian, I started my second Jojo Moyes book: The Girl You Left Behind. Here's the list of the last few books I've read.

3. The bird and I completed one week of oil pulling. Although it isn't the best way to wake up, it really isn't so bad. I distract myself with catching up on social media and emails in the morning. Here and here are a couple people talking about it.

4. I am finally making the decision to do a redesign for the blog... and I need help! If you have any suggestions for blog designers, please send them my way or leave me a comment.

5. Lastly... Get excited for an upcoming giveaway week! March marked my 3 year blog anniversary and I wanted to put together something special for all my lovely readers. The giveaways are scheduled for the week of April 7th!

I can't wait to hear your final thoughts on oil pulling! I recently purchased some unrefined coconut oil to try it myself, but haven't started yet.

I'm currently in queue with Aubrey from Kinch Life Designs for my blog. Her site is (http://www.thekinchlifedesigns.com.) So while I don't have the product yet, I love her portfolio and she's been REALLY friendly and easy to work it vi email so far.

I've been thinking about trying the oil pulling for a month now! I think the big thing stopping me is how long you have to do it for! Good idea to just get on the computer.. that always seems to make time fly :)

Jennifer Prod said...

i've been thinking about a blog redesign too - you'll have to keep us updated on the process :)

Elle Sees said...

Gina said...
