Today I’m simply sharing some posts and articles that caught my eye.

Daniel at Casual Kitchen has an excellent article on the Forgotten Restaurant Experience, what good is spending the money,  if it’s not special enough to be savored and remembered a week, a month, or a year down the road? I like the perspective a lot, it’s one I need to remember the next time I catch myself looking to eat out just to break some monotony. What if I used half the budget and splurged on something phenomenal at home?

Heidi tickled me as she shared her Scoopz and Jarz. I wish mine would stop wandering away.

The Nesting Place has inspired me with a fix for the grubbiest place in my home, the white backboard under the breakfast bar.  Three kids, dirty toes, sticky jam, yes it gets BAD. Now the bigger question, will I actually find time to put it together?

Sometimes we need a reminder that it’s ok to get dirty. For that, I point you to a mud bath party. Some of my favorite memories are playing in the rain and I encourage my children to do the same. For my friends in other parts of the country, when it rains here in the summer it’s warm, almost shower warm. I remember being absolutely crushed when I discovered summer showers in Minnesota were chilly.

Here is simply a reminder to work at enjoying life, it’s a short Friendfeed entry from Dave Slusher.

Finally, I’m abusing my privilege  and congratulating  my good friend Jared Smith who has landed a job at ReadWriteWeb as their new webmaster. I can’t begin to say how proud I am; I wish you nothing but the best in your new gig.

Ok Home Eccers, it’s your turn. Link to your favorite post from the week, use a little common sense when it comes to your choice and it will pass. Don’t use more than two links or it will get picked up by the spam filter.  As a quick reminder, the comment policy is in full effect even when we’re sharing link love.

    I love Emily's thrift and candor in her posts on how she lives on less than $1000 a month. Wednesday's Flour Based Products Are a Rip-Off
    post is a prime example of how she shares her insights and determination to make healthy, economical meals for her family that include homemade pasta and tortillas. Inspiring!
