Monday links // currently…

Written by editor Nicole Bennett of Gidget Goes Home

Good Monday morning to ya! Some weekends I just can”t get my links to you, but I figured what better way to start a new week than by sharing a bit of inspiration.

But first, take a peek into what the current happenings are around the Simple Homemade headquarters. We had a few days of fantastic spring weather, and now we”re back to a cooler, cloudy week ahead of us. But we certainly made the most of the sun (which you may have seen on Instagram— my apologies to those of you who are still shoveling snow!).


organizing… my closet office, putting my new second shelf to use, holding some interesting craft supplies I found while I”ve been attacking my stash.

rearranging… we moved our kids” kitchen upstairs where the dress-up clothes are, and brought a simple Tutti i casino online italiani presentano software compatibili con il sistema operativo Windows, ma per coloro che adoperano un Mac, l’offerta e molto piu contenuta. toy cabinet down to try to control the clutter in our under-the-stairs play area. I just love rearranging furniture!

listening… to Imagine Dragons, the Lumineers, All Sons & Daughters, and more on Spotify (and thoroughly enjoying my premium trial membership).

enjoying… lots of meals with friends lately, and the last of our flour and sugar supplies before we start GAPS.

exploring… lots of new recipes, especially grain free options like this delicious Paleo Granola.

preparing… for a weekend away with the family, and both sets of grandparents!

  1. I absolutely love rearranging furniture! I’m sure my husband would be happy if I loved it a bit less, but moving things around always gives me a fresh perspective on how I view our home.

    I will have to make a trip to your other website to see why your family has decided to do GAPS. I love to hear about why people are making the food choices they are – because it is something I am constantly evaluating for my family as well.

  2. What a charming play area! 🙂
    Also? On a personal note, thank you for the Trader Joe’s gluten free all purpose flour mix tip – life changing. Ha ha! Well, at least baking changing, which for my kids is kind of the same thing.

    Thank for the shout out for SK, friend!
    Best wishes!
