Link LoveHi guys. How ya doin’? I’m struggling.

This weekend in Milwaukee was a much-needed blast. The only bummer? I am SO tired now. I’m trying to rally just to write this post. Let’s hope that I can throw myself in bed early tonight and start off the week right tomorrow morning.

Hope you all have a strong start to your week as well! If you need some light evening reading, might I recommend a few of these links…

Link Love v. 30Whelp. This weekend has flown by.

The nights have been fairly chill, but during the days have been non-stop: long walks to the lake with Kero, trips to the neighborhood’s new Mariano’s, cleaning/organizing the apartment, and hoping to still get some good solid time with a book or two tomorrow. And work on that fall/winter budget with Ry. Oh, and reading all of these lovely things:

Ahhh, such a needed weekend. What did you all do?

link loveWhew…busy week(end). If you follow me on Snapchat (@midwestlovefest), you probably put two and two together and realized I went home to Wisconsin to surprise my mom and dad and celebrate my dad’s 57th birthday (happy bday dad!). Now, I have a super busy week ahead, but it’s okay – because we have a long, happy 4th coming up soon. Hope you all have a lovely start to your week!

Ugh, I’m sorry this is a bit late. I’m not feeling the best, if I’m being honest.

It’s been a great weekend, but super busy. But when is it not, right? #adulting never stops. That’s what I’m learning.

Link LoveHappy Sunday all you lovers!

I’m having an insanely productive weekend. Scrubbed my apartment clean AF Friday and Saturday. What a party, I know. But I’ve never woken up more at peace than this morning, just knowing my kitchen and bathroom were sparkling.

It really is the small things.

I’m planning on meal planning and working on blogging stuff for the rest of the day, especially since it’s raining here in Chicago…which kind of makes it hard to do anything other than binge watch House of Cards or be productive. And today, I choose productivity.

No matter what ya’ll are doing, I hope it’s a good one! Chat tomorrow.

Link Love | midwestlovefestI’m away in Wisconsin this weekend, visiting my sister as she’s home from Physician Assistant school in North Carolina. Been a busy past few days. In all honesty, from Wednesday till now has been a bit of a blur. Luckily, I had a very laid-back weekend, filled with way too much cheese, cozying up by a fire and finishing a good book. Hope this week is only a reflection of the past few days, and hope your week is the same!

But it’s more of that thing where you can try your hardest to salvage relationships — and I did — but at the end of the day, if you keep getting hurt by someone because they just don’t know how to properly love people, it’s just not worth it. It’s not worth the strain in your heart and it starts to bleed into your other relationships and it becomes super dysfunctional.

Ugh. This is a total delay. First one of the year, really. As far as Link Love goes, at least. It’s just been such a “blah” past couple of days, have you ever had that? Where nothing is really wrong, but nothing is really right. And you have energy, but you’re tired all the time? It’s just BLAH. Anyway, honestly I kind of took the weekend to re-energize myself. And thus, did not even spend too much time on the Interwebs and had barely any fun links to share with you guys. Sad panda.

But, better two days late than never, right? And don’t worry, I’ll be back tonight with my usual posting.

Ughh is it Sunday already? How did that happen? Probably because I’ve spent the weekend trying to catch up on sleep, which has been slightly unsuccessful I might mention.

I’m attempting to get back to a normal sleep schedule, so I can wake up by 6 this week and rock it out at the gym. Hope you all had a successful, happy weekend.

  • James is making me like Justin. Well, that and his catchy hits. Dammit.
  • Ronda Rousey’s chat with Ellen DeGeneres is heartbreaking, yet so human and inspiring.
  • So many pretty pictures.
  • This is for every time you want to sign up for something, but don’t want to provide your actual email.
  • Things you only have to buy once. I’m down.
  • Stories like this one make me want to give it all up to be a vet.
  • I’m at my wits end, so yes. I really need to start meditating. Luckily, there’s this guide.
  • Love this interview with PR #GirlBoss Sydney Reising.
  • Why is no one else talking about this moment!? American government working with 5 different alien races? The skeptic in me thinks, “HELL NO.” But the weirdo in me thinks, “OH FOR SURE this is happening.” What do you think?
  • I love Adele.
