My Favorite Haunts These Days...

So, I know I have been really slacking on the blogging lately... 
We have had a "sickness" in the Weinzapfel house this past week, and we are still waiting for it to make it's exit. I have been sanitizing everything and trying to doctor B and myself back to health, but I think living in a 100 year-old house with poor ventilation, combined with fall allergies is just too much to fight against. We are just trying to relax and take it as easy as possible... Which isn't easy with a busy toddler, whose own illness doesn't faze her in the slightest!! Luckily, she is still taking two naps every day, so I get a little more time to myself...

I have been trying to keep up with everyone's blogs... But I have been a little distracted by all of the amazing projects going on at some of my favorite blogs!! I wanted to share the love for all of my fabulous followers...



First, there is Eighteen25. I am always inspired by this blog.
They have amazingly talented sponsors {with awesome etsy shops}, and all-around great DIY ideas for every holiday and just-because occasions. If you are feeling a little crafty, you should check them out! They have a great eye for really cool {and FREE} printables-- my weakness! I'll warn you, though... It's addicting! And you'll probably end up running out for craft supplies, like I always do! :)

Next up is Delighted Momma... Oh my goodness! Can I just tell you that I am obsessed with this blog!! Not only is Lindsay just gorg-eous, but I am in love with the fact that she is a licensed esthetician who gives really great advice on all-natural skin care (and yummy recipes). I am one who has struggled with bad skin my entire life {mostly due to out-of-control hormones and the humidity of the Midwest}, but I will tell you that after trying out some of her masks and advice, I am HOOKED to the OCM and using baking soda as an exfoliate... BIBLE-- she gives better advice on skin than anyone I have ever spoken with-- and I love the all-natural bonus! Plus, she has amazing DIY tutorials for really pretty and earthy jewelry!! LOVE! You won't be disappointed.


Then there's CLEAN MAMA. This blog is much-needed for inspiration around my house... The fact that the house that we currently live in is very old, in need of a lot of work, half of our things are still in boxes, and there is a toddler running around like a wild animal, makes it very hard to keep things organized and clean on a consistent basis. I'm always feeling one-step behind in this department...  CLEAN MAMA has some great printables to help keep me organized day-to-day, and help me play "catch-up" if I have a day that I can't get anything done... In a world that makes it impossible, I am actually making progress in organizing all of our things in our temporary living situation! :)


Last, but not least...  Jones Design Company.
Mrs. Jones {aka Emily} is a momma of four with impeccable taste. I wish I could just copy and paste her house where we live, because I am so jealous of the beautiful home she shares with her cute little family. However, for now I will have to admire from afar and wait for the day we finally sell our house in Indy {which we finally leased to a potential buyer, almost 11 months after putting it on the market... YEA!} I guess I'll just have a head-start for our next house! :)

I hope you all enjoy these blogs as much as I have... Have a lovely and inspiring week! :)

This sounds just about like our house! Mommy and Meyer both sick:( Hopefully we are all better for Boo at the Zoo this weekend! Are you guys going to make it? I'm loving this post and will definitely be checking these sites out myself. You have been missed in the blogging world, but totally understandable with illness and a crazy little toddler!

Great blog suggestions!! Hope everyone is feeling better VERY soon - I feel like we keep rotating sickness in our house. Once we're all over something, something else creeps up. I guess it's the season :(
