Blog Gems 7/29 - 8/3

Well, I survived!!

Hopefully, by the time you read this, I am sitting on the BEACH with memories of my big project and CRAZY week millions of miles away.  Let's all sigh together now... 

Anyway, just popping in to share a few of my favorite blog posts from the week.  Not that I had any time for reading blogs or anything. ;)

"3 Ways My House Looks Worse in Real Life" from The Nester. I love The Nester, and I LOVE real life. 

I'm a little bit obsessed with this desktop wallpaper from The College Prep. (Also available for iPad & iPhone)

This series on The Vanilla Tulip about "Living Small" is so good.  I've said for a while now that I don't want our next house to be bigger, but smaller.  This TOTALLY inspires me! (Also, her daughter's sheet? I died!)

Especially after Blogher, I'm feeling the need to have my blog all scheduled and organized.  These free (and super super cute) blog planner printables from House of Rose are helping!!

Hannah B.'s post titled "There Will Be No Rose Ceremony Tonight" on being single is SO good.  I encourage you to read it even if you are not single, just to be reminded of how to love your single friends. :)
"Joy or 'Just Wait'?" by Katie Wetherbee on Power of Moms is a great message about how we talk to new moms... I'm guilty of falling into the "just wait" trap sometimes, but the JOY is so so much better.

And, this: "A Letter to Kate Middleton on the Postpartum Body" by Emily Wierenga is SO so good.  (Thanks Kat for sending this to me!)

So... What were your favorite reads this week?  Please share in the comments below.

See you next week for a full Blogher recap & some other fun things up my sleeve!
