This week’s “best of the interwebs” post features some awesome blogs and a bonus category, “inspire”! I kind of like it… that one might stick around.

I (and thousands of others) love Angela’s blog, “Oh She Glows”.  It documents her transformation to a healthy lifestyle.  Last year when I was training for my first half marathon, her blog inspired me more than I can say.  I love her recipes and I love her attitude.  This “15-Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta” post is actually a couple of weeks old.  I am featuring it this week because I made it for the first time on Tuesday night. Oh.My.God.  So simple, so amazing.  I’m still thinking about how delicious it is.  This one is awesome for those “get-home-from-work-at-8:30-but-still-really-want-to-have-a-healthy-dinner” kind of days.*  Delicious.

*Those days happen with too much frequency in my life.

I am a relatively new subscriber to Seventh House on the Left.  It’s very reminiscent of YHL, one of my all time favorite blogs; the exterior of Ashley and Greg’s house is even super similar to that of Sherry and John’s!  I am super excited about Ashley’s newest painting project.  Ashley is totally brave for baring it all online. I love this type of painting project.  My mom recently did something similar, based on inspiration on Top Design (see painting here).  Earlier this week, my co-worker randomly mentioned to me that she’s bought herself a canvas, acrylic paints, and molding paste.  And I wouldn’t be surprised if one day, in the not so distant future, I took a big, blank canvas on myself!  Good luck Ashley, I can’t wait to see the results!!

I wish I could put words to why I love this post.  I don’t know.  I just do. Maybe it’s because I see so many photos of people on travel blogs and its questionable whether the people really wanted to be in the picture (or whether they even knew were being photographed).  Maybe its because this is the best kind of travel experience.  I don’t know.  But I loved it.

Andrea Hanki of Pink Sugar Photography was our wedding photographer.  Since the beginning of January she has been documenting her daughter on her fantastic tumblr site “lila was here”.  You need to check it out.

Bonus post this week.  This is for Ash’s ability to look at a scenario I have seen hundreds or thousands of times in a way that – it shames me to say – I never have.  I’m the person who brushes off those kids.  This one really made me think.
