  1. Oh, the genetic portraits of mothers and daughters was so beautiful! Now I want to do this with my own mom!

  2. Yeah, I definitely don’t believe in dieting. I know that it needs to be more long-term for that. I’m still struggling with finding what works for me, but it’s a work in progress! Thanks for all these fab links!


  3. Awww what a great round up of links, thanks San! I really REALLY need to tame my inbox; I was just saying that to friends—it’s so overwhelming how the various email accounts I have just keep mounting with unread messages, and those I need to respond to. Also I’m not a fan of dieting, but I do want to learn how to make small decisions that lead to great change in my health and wellness ❤️❤️❤️

    Hope you are having a great week, my friend! Xoxo

  4. I of course had to check out the excel article since I live in excel! I knew of most of the tricks they addressed but the F4 thing was new to me! I haven’t used Index/Match in a long time so will have to keep that one in mind when the data isn’t formatted for a vlookup to work!

    I’m continuing to think of you in the midst of this government shutdown. I feel like it could go on for a very long time and I really hope there are consequences for the cheeto-in-chief.

  5. I made these sheet pan chicken fajitas for dinner and they were delicious – https://themodernproper.com/posts/sheet-pan-chicken-fajitas

    I also personally can’t fathom having to tame my inbox. My work and personal inboxes are always, ALWAYS at 0. I would get so anxious if they weren’t!

  6. Thanks for sharing all these great links! I’ve got several of them bookmarked. That lemon barley soup sounds so good!

  7. Omg I only got 5 questions right on the money quiz!!!! I think I know why… I don’t invest, except in my retirement account, and I only have one credit card that I pay off every month, so I really don’t care about interest rates because I don’t pay them!

    Being a loud victim is something everyone can do, I have to remember that. On Oprah one time, they told you to grab the penis, pull it, squeeze it, then twist it. Whenever I tell my husband that he feels pain just hearing the description lol.

  8. Really enjoyed the financial literacy test! I think of myself as pretty financially savvy, but I didn’t know all the answers there and learning something in taking the test.

    I’m all for praise of slow runners. They’re amazing and they inspire me. The 15k I run every January has a few spots with two way traffic, so you can see the runners in front of you and then behind you and it’s one of the things I love about the race. I love being able to see the super fast runners logging sub-6:00 miles and I love seeing the folks walking or running slow at the end because they’re *doing it* – they’re out there for longer than I am, doing a hard thing for a long time and that’s incredible.
