World Wide Web favorites + 2 introductions!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post of my favorite posts around the web – so no time like the present, right?

However, allow me to start out this post with some exciting news on the blog front! Two of my sweetest and dearest friend have recently started their very own blogs, and I couldn’t be more excited. One lives 3 states away…where the other lives {basically} 3 blocks away. I’m so excited to keep up with these two on their new blog journey! They are pretty cool chicks with something in common; they both had a tall, slightly immature and incredibly goofy chick in both of their weddings. No I’m not talking about Brooke Shields, it’s me silly willy! Okay, anyway – check them out! Now! NOW. Why are you still reading this? Click below!

Anyhoodle. Favorite posts from around the web startingggg NOW:

{ 1 } I was first introduced to this sweet girl via Instagram, and it’s pretty safe to say I’ve established quite the online crush on her! And I really do mean that in the least creepy way possible. Her motivation is 200% contagious and I admire her dedication to not just her workouts, but blogging every day, her school work, healthy eating, relationships etc. I’m really excited to keep reading her blog day after day to see where I can apply some of her philosophies to my day to day life. This post of hers reallllly stuck out to me, and in fact I’ve read it a few times over since her posting it.


Reading just this small paragraph gives me chills:
Make a decision that you're going to be happy one way or another—no matter what. "No matter what, I'm going to be happy! If I have to ignore everybody; if I have to never watch television again; if I have to never pick up a newspaper again, I'm going to be happy. If I never have to see that person's face again, I'm going to be happy. If I have to see that person's face, I'm going to find something to see in that person's face that makes me happy. I'm going to be happy. I'm going to be happy. I'm going to be happy."

I hope you enjoy her blog, but most specifically that post as much as I do!

{ 2 } Check this; Casey and her kids just radiate happiness and the sweet family bond that I someday hope to have. Though this post is light on words, the pictures remind me 200% of being a kid and celebrating the new year with my parents and sister!

Love it.

{ 3 } The words in this post completely stopped me dead in my tracks. Confession: if a post is longer than a few paragraphs, I rarely read it. However, this one I’ve read over, and over, and over again. I hope you do, too. : )


I think that is the perfect post to ring in the New Year. In my opinion it outlines everything matters in life!

{ 3.5 } Since we are on her blog – let me talk about a second post of hers. I’ve read this before over the years, but I don’t think it’s something you can read too many times!


{ 4 } I’m seriously considering designing and printing out the red words in this; posted from one of my high school besties, Brandy!


Sleep when tired. How simple is that?!

{ 5 } This post speaks for itself through and through. No commentary necessary.


{ 6 } I know there is another one out there I just can’t remember which blog it belongs to. Gosh – almost as if I follow 100+ blogs or something. ::guilty::

What blogs, posts or quotes are you loving lately? I’d love to hear about them!

  1. OH MY GOSH Beth Ann!

    Thank you SO much! I am literally glowing, after reading this.
    I am so lucky to have you as a friend in my life, what a blessing it has been to "meet" [cyber meet haha] and get to know you!

    I look forward to motivating and inspiring each other in this new year! :)

  2. I can't wait for the motivation and inspiration myself! You just radiate positiveness that I can feel all the way here in Denver - keep it up, girlie! And let me know how I can help! : )
