I’ve written this post a couple of days ahead of time because right now, I am out of town attending my first Canadian blogging conference, Blissdom, in Ontario. I’ll fill you in with all the deets when I get back, but first things first with this week’s 3 Things Thursday.
1. Beautiful Me Project
Since becoming a mother, I’ve really struggled with my body image. That’s why when I heard about the Beautiful Me Project, I had to share it because it’s something so many women struggle with. What this project is trying to do is raise awareness about the true beauty of women’s bodies after childbirth. “Postpartum bodies are amazing and we shouldn’t be told that we are no longer worthy of positive attention because we have extra weight or skin folds.” We need to realize that we’re not alone in feeling like this and more importantly, we should stop feeling like this.
2. Kiddoodle TV
Recently I had the opportunity for a free trial of Kidoodle TV. It’s a basically TV for children. They have lots of different show for kids of all ages and you can watch on your computer, phone or iPad. What’s great is that there’s a parental code to be able to get in and watch, you can block out shows you don’t want them watching and best of all, you can set a timer! So if you only want your child to watch 20 minutes, set the time and once it’s up they aren’t able to watch anymore unless you extend the time with your code. Pretty cool right? You can get your free 14-day trial here.
3. Saving Dinner
Just recently I started meal planning again to make dinner time less chaotic in our house. Then I was contacted by SavingDinner.com to try out their premium meal planner and of course I said yes! I can’t wait to get started because not only does it keep giving you new recipe ideas, it lets you make your meal plan and a shopping list all in one place. Once I try it out, I’m going to let you know how it worked out for us and I’m going to be giving about one 3-month premium meal planning subscription away to one of you. So stay tuned for that!

The Beautiful Me project sounds like a most worthy project. Thank you for sharing this – I had not heard of this before now.
It’s such a great idea and project Alana!
I love reading your, “3 Things Thursday” posts. Always fun. I especially can’t wait to hear about your blogging conference. I can’t imagine what they’re all about, so … hurry back and stay safe!
Thank you Jeanne, I hope you join in one day! And the conference was a great experience, thanks.
Can’t wait to hear about Blissdom— maybe next year, I’ll see you there!!!
I did learn a lot, was inspired and i won’t lie, there were some tears. I’m glad I went and it would be great to connect with you IRL. Maybe next year!
I’ve always want to go to blog conference. My children are grown and left the nest and I’m still working on my body.
Coffee is on
It’s not too late Dora, you can still go to a blogging conference, there are so many great ones out there.
The Beautiful Me project sounds wonderful 🙂
It really is an amazing project Jodi!
Great to keep in touch with you from a distance! I’ve been enjoying your blog – such fun!
Thanks so much Shannon! Love how the internet can keep people in touch no matter how far!
Oh enjoy your conference! Saving Dinner sounds like a winner. When I plan my meals ahead of time it does take the pressure off!
Thanks Taya and I’m excited to try Saving Dinner!
