{From PDX with Love} Weekend Links and LEGO CopsThis picture pretty much sums up what our lives have been revolving around lately: LEGOs.


 —- On to our Weekend Links! —-

If you need ambient sound to help you sleep you should try Soundrown where you can choose different ambient sounds, from a coffee shop to camping, rain or even a playground. And better yet, you can mix them together and make it rain inside the coffee shop!

For the die hard DIY fans: this amazing yarn banner which will look amazing on as a headboard.

29 things you should know before moving to Bellingham, aka B’Ham.

I’ve been on a Spinach craze and now I’ve found 8 recipes for sneaking in Spinach. Yei!

Looking for a healthy snack? Try this broiled grapefruit with honey and cinnamon, it looks so good!

These oats and eggs look so delicious; wish I had the time to make them.

Currently reading: Pawn by Aimee Carter. Loved Aimee’s Goddess Test Series, loving Pawn so far.

Next on my to-read list: Slide by Jill Hathaway about a girl who slides into somebody else’s mind and experiences the world through that person’s eyes. This time, she sees her sister’s friend being murdered.

Wish list: this dress, this buffet and this ceramic vase.

    You’ve been busy for real. The LEGOs project looks pretty good and the recipes you shared should keep us all busy for a while. I’m trying the grapefruit.
