Favorite Things : April 27 – May 4, 2019

austin, favorite things, texas

This week’s favorite things is a day late, but I was so sick yesterday that the only thing I was good for was lying on the couch. It is less than a month until my due date and I honestly had not felt so terrible since the first trimester. I feel mostly better today, but I’m ready to get this next month over.

We’re heading back down to Ohio today for family pictures. In all likelihood it will be our last trip to Ohio before we move to Texas. I’m not sure when the next time I’m home will be, so it will be a bit of a bittersweet trip I think with a lot of good-byes — one of them being to my brother who moves to Charlotte, North Carolina in a week or two. The family is starting to spread out!

Here are this week’s favorite things:

Joanna Goddard visited Austin, Texas with her kids the other weekend.

From Laura McKowen — self-discipline as a form of self-care.

Carrots for Michaelmas posts on how she meal plans for a family of six.

Why is it so hard to learn a language in middle-age? Also, here’s a great book on this topic.*

I watch everything with closed captioning. Apparently I’m not alone.

Another for post-baby running plans: how long should your longest run be while ultramarathon training?

A simple solution to burn-out.

Must-read: How to leave sports writing and never regret a second.ย 

What are your plans for this weekend?
