Pink Lemonade Week in Review 4/14 - 4/20

I have to say this week went very smoothly - we've gotten articles up every weekday and even have a giveaway running (fyi - there aren't very many entries right now so your chances are good if you pop on over and enter). 

Today is Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter and we're all getting ready for the festivities (both religious and bunny-fest) - next week, we will be posting some fun Easter articles.  We've also got some really great Easter ideas on our Pinterest board so hop on over and give it a look.

Anyone getting their gardens ready??  We're getting ready to replant quite a bit of our yard with "drought tolerant" plants because of the drought here in California - I have lots of great ideas and will fill you in when we finally get it all done.  What kinds of things are you doing in your yards and gardens this Spring??

Enough of my babbling, here's what you might have missed on Pink Lemonade this week:

The Front Porch
It's time to make your front porch (or step) just as pretty as spring itself.

Menu Planning Monday
A week's worth of budget-friendly menus for your family enjoyment.

The Idea of Him
Have you ever wanted someone, something, so badly to be true that you’d overlook every shred of evidence to the contrary?

Keeping Medical Information Organized
Recently I have discovered the importance of having all your medical information organized and accessible. Especially if you or a family member have ongoing health issues it is vital to keep all the insurance forms, bills, receipts, medical records, etc organized. But, that can be a daunting process. Here are a few tips that have helped me.

Dinner Diva: Eat Clean
Now more than ever, nutritional nightmares abound on grocery store shelves. Products that are manipulated to hook us into food addictions take us hostage daily. You cannot be passive when it comes to buying your food and throw just any old thing in your cart. If you will implement a few simple rules, you will no longer be victimized by the food industry again: read the food labels of each and every product you buy.

The First Book of Ore: The Foundry's Edge (Excerpt and GIVEAWAY!!!)
Phoebe Plumm has everything in the world except a friend. Her opulent Art Deco metropolis, Albright City, is full of spectacular, gleaming luxuries: rocket-fast Cable Bikes and ZipTrolleys, wondrous Televiewers and Computators, and a never-ending parade of streamlined mechanical innovations. All of it comes from The Foundry, a global corporation with a monopoly on technology where her father, Dr. Jules Plumm is Chief Surveyor. Phoebe's life in Meridian revolves around trading pranks with irksome Micah Tanner but when her father is abducted, Phoebe and Micah find themselves stranded in a stunning yet volatile world of living metal which they discover has been ruthlessly plundered by The Foundry for centuries. In this strange, mysterious and violent realm, Phoebe and Micah must fight to save Dr. Plumm, themselves ... and all creatures of good will.

Today I have some fantastic tips to help you on your weight loss journey... Take them all to heart, or just pick out a few that work for you - either way, you'll be a few steps closer to reaching your goal.

Making Fitness a Family Affair
Squeezing in time for exercise can be tough on busy parents. We know that it is important, but with so many schedules to work around, your exercise time is often relegated to last in line.

Why You Want Your Kids to Play Outside
Thumbs. They race across joysticks and pale glass surfaces, clicking and pulling so quickly you need a stop time camera to appreciate what they’ve done. They kick footballs, pilot spacecraft across millions of light years and explode the sharp teethed jaws of flesh eating aliens who would destroy Earth and every living thing on it.

Can Your Friends of Lovers be Holding You Back?
I can remember getting what for me was my first big break in my budding media career. I squealed with delight when the producer called from a popular syndicated radio show asking to interview me. My heart pounded, my mouth went dry ~ I had worked so hard and now it seemed things were about to unfold. I was ecstatic.

A weeks worth of goodies at your fingertips... be sure to check out any you might have missed!

Have a wonderful week!
