Weekly Article Round-Up: June 9-15

Y’all. I slept in until almost 11. Considering that I’m usually wide awake at 0700 on Saturday mornings (since I was 15, I’ve referred to the 7-7:30 time frame as “sleeping in”), this is virtually unheard of for me.

That said, though, my gawd does it ever feel amazing to get a metric ton of sleep. I feel like a different person when I’m able to get so much rest, and I’m always amazed by how big of a difference it makes. Sleep FTW!

Anyways, all that is by way of explanation for why I’m a wee bit late in posting this week’s article round-up. Grab some beverage and enjoy!

    I’m the exact same! Me waking up after 6:59 = sleeping in. And guess what? I slept in extra late this morning, until 7:30, haha! Thanks for the great articles 🙂

    Yay for sleeping in! If both girls sleep past 7, it’s a miracle. So many good reads! I’m especially interested in healthy meals in 12 minutes. Hope they’re healthy, fast & yummy!
