Friday Link Love

Greetings from snow covered Richmond! Yes, we were on the receiving end of another snow storm this week (if you consider 5 to 6" a snow storm...apparently we do here in central VA). It was enough to shut down our office for a day and give us another snow day at home with our babies, which we're incredibly grateful for. It's supposed to be a chilly weekend, so we'll be laying pretty low.

We've both been on a huge reading kick lately. We barely finish one book before picking up another one. With how cold it's been, cuddling up on the couch with a book in your hand has just seemed like a good idea.

Speaking of reading, here are some blog posts from this past week that we enjoyed (hopefully you will too!)...

If you've seen the national news this week, then you might know that the mid-Atlantic states were hit Monday with a snow and ice storm. Here in central Virginia, we got about 6-8" of soft, powdery snow that resulted in a snow day for the two of us. #hlnclovessnowdays

The temps are icy as all get out now. Space heaters and electric blankets have been our new BFF's this week. We may be bundling up this weekend in loads of layers in order to get outside to play with our dogs, but you can bet your bottom dollar that we'll find plenty of time to also cuddle up under the blankets and catch up on TV.

If you're hunkering down at home to hide from the cold, here are a few posts that we enjoyed this week that we think you'll like too. Happy reading!!

Wednesday Pinsday!!

We finally got some snow!! Woo hoo!! We know that some of our friends to the north are completely over the snow since they  continue to get dumped on. Here in central VA we got about 8 inches or so and we are so happy that we finally got a good snow. The snow started falling Monday afternoon and continued into Tuesday so we have a winter wonderland around these parts. :-)


Seriously, we are still kids at heart when it comes to snow.
We are so excited for the first snow! Tell us about your favorite snow day memory!

We Got 'Nuttin But Love' For You!


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! 

OK we have a confession…we kinda love Valentine's Day! We know that some people hate the commercialism but we don't care about that one bit. It's not about all that stuff (although some stuff is appreciated). We kid, we kid! To us, it's about taking time out of your day to tell someone that you love them. And that someone could be a love interest, your mom or your best friend.

So to all of you guys, our friends, we say Happy Valentine's Day!! Love you all!

A Note from Mendi...Where Have I Been?

I’m still here.  Honestly, nothing much has changed in my world lately.  Life is good.  No, life is great actually.  

For those of you who have checked on me or who have dropped me a comment to say that you miss seeing me (your words truly mean so much to me), I feel like I owe you an update.  If you haven’t the slightest clue what I’m talking about or you’re completely uninterested, then I fully understand and you can feel free to skip this post because it’s gonna be a wordy one.  

I just thought it was time to explain a few things…  My health is great, my marriage is as wonderful as ever, Jayme is still my bestest boo in the world, my career is ticking along and my family is blessed to also be healthy.  No change is a good thing in all of those cases.  The only thing that is really different in my world is that I’ve stepped away from making videos on our YouTube channel.  It’s been – shoot, hold on while I figure it out – nearly three months since I’ve posted anything on the ol ‘Tube.  At first it just felt like I didn’t have anything worth sitting down to talk about and gradually that turned into a “holiday” break that just felt right at the time.  Without really even talking about it, Jayme let me know that it was OK if I wanted to step away for awhile and that I’d always have a place to come back to if I eventually felt the desire to throw myself back into making videos.  Talk about the greatest gift ever.  She’s been a ROCKSTAR through all of this…putting out more videos than ever and keeping up with weekly vlogging on top of that.  I know you guys have been loving it.  And I have too.  My interest in watching YouTube videos is the same.  I love keeping up with everyone and seeing your lives, what you’re buying and the products that you’re loving.  I just don’t feel the need to do it myself right now.  Will I again at some point?  I can’t tell you.  And I’m enjoying not having to decide or really even think about it at the moment.  Thank you so much for understanding.

So what am I doing with my time?  

Well, for starters, I'm spending as much time as possible with my loves.  Chris and I have our dogs out every weekend doing something that is active and fun for them.  These moments are my favorite with my little family.  I will never ever look back on my life or their life and regret spending every minute possible with them.  They are my babies.  I saw something recently on Instagram (I wish I could remember who posted it) that said "I work hard so that my dog has a great life."  I feel like that sums me up and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I'm also back in a good routine of working out 3-4 days a week.  My goal this year is to stay consistent with my workouts and not fall off the wagon.

I'm trying to save money...  I'm in no way on a no-buy, but I've definitely put myself on a low-buy. Shopping my stash (and I have a lot of it!) when it comes to beauty products and I'm tapping the brakes on buying new clothes.  I really want to get to a place where I only have things that I absolutely LOVE.

We have a couple of projects that we want to do around the house this year, which is encouraging me to majorly declutter.  I like to think of myself as a tidy and organized person, but there are some deep, dark corners of my house that fully need to be purged.  I want to look at it like we're moving (even though we're totally not) and that I should only keep things that we need or love too much to let go.  Call me crazy, but I'm actually excited about this process.

My love for reading my favorite blogs is at what feels like an all time high right now.  And I have so many favorites…lifestyle bloggers, home d├ęcor, beauty, food, fashion, exercise, travel.  I can’t get enough.  I find so much freaking inspiration from them daily.  On Fridays, I’ve been sharing a Link Love post that Jayme & I compile to round up some of our favorites from the week.  I hope you guys have been enjoying those and that you’ve found some new blogs to follow in the process.

So while you may be seeing less of me, just know that I’m still around and that I’m interested in anything and everything that you have to say.  I try to pop up on Instagram every few days but sometimes a week goes by without me even realizing it.  I'll try to do better.  And in case we don't say it enough, thank you so much for the love and support that you show our little space on the web.

The last thing that I want to leave you with is a quote that I read not long ago that really struck a chord with me and maybe you’ll find it inspires you too…

What Matters Most...Inspiring Quote by Goethe | Friday Favorites at www.andersonandgrant.com

Loads of love to you guys!!

XO,
Mendi

Happy Friyay!! Can we get an AMEN that it's the weekend?! Lord have mercy, these weeks just seem to get longer and longer. Has anyone else noticed that the days are actually starting to literally get longer though? Isn't it glorious? Life is always better when we have more hours of daylight. The more the better. Bring it. Which also means that spring must be just right around the corner too.

This weekend we're spending some time with our parents. It's always important to us to have good quality time with our momma and daddy. Those are the moments that mean the most.

Here are a few of our favorites from around the blogging world this week...

Man buns. Apparently it's a thing now. We no likey.
Our Anacondas Don't Want None Unless You've Got A Man Bun #refinery29  http://www.refinery29.com/celebrity-man-buns#slide12  There is a furious debate in the scholarly study of Man-bunology concerning beard versus no beard. On one hand, many theorists suggest the absence of facial hair creates an asymmetry that is pleasing to the eye. Jake Gyllenhaal, foremost expert in the field, however, claims otherwise.
