Worth Reading


I thought I'd round up some of the best things I've read lately for you:

BLOGS:
Cyberbullying is NOT okay & choosing kindness from A Beautiful Mess

A great article on remember what life was like BK (before kids) from Collecting Moments

I've been intrigued by spiralizers for a long time so these post detailing 8 life changing ways to use a spiralizer makes me want one even more.

A great post for girl moms on teaching your daughter about the importance of The Beauty Within from Kelly's Korner

Why girlfriends are so important by Maggie Whitley makes me realize I need to get busy and make some new, local friends ASAP

This post from my friend Erin at Bambini Travel really helped me to see the learning opportunities there are with the Kindle Fire

NieNie Dialogues house tour was recently featured on The Today Show and it is stunning!!

I've been wanting to jump on the refrigerator oatmeal train for a while now.  It sounds delicious and I love the idea of having breakfast ready to go in the fridge each morning.  I should probably start with buying some mason jars and giving April's Refrigerator Oatmeal a try

I'm really intrigued by the Lularoe clothing line lately.  Their dresses are stunning!!

Andrea is a super mom, teacher and amazing all around.  I love her family posts and want to try to do some little book club activities at home after seeing her book club from summer.

I have been on a Pioneer Woman kick and am anxious to give her recipes for Freddy's Burgers a try because they are my all time favorite!!

Adding oatmeal to a cookie makes it seem healthy-ish so I am excited to give House of Smith's Easy Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chips Cookies a try!  Maybe I'll even swap out the chocolate chips for some butterscotch chips :)

BOOKS:
I also got the book The Plans I Have for You by Amy Parker to review this month.  It's a cute picture book with whimsical illustrations.  The theme of the book is that God has great plans for children and the book details so many options of greatness for kids.  It focuses on all kinds of jobs and career fields.  It's a sweet book that would be a great one to share with your children at the beginning of the school year.  * I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review of it.

I just finished Some Day You'll Thank Me for This: The Official Southern Ladies' Guide to Being a "Perfect Mother" by Metcalfe and Hayes.  It was very funny, entertaining and I loved all of the Southern references.  The chapters all end with a handful of their favorite Southern recipes.  It's a cute book (the first in the series of three).  Glad my mom found these for me.

I'm starting One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp next.

Have you read or written anything great lately?  
I'd love for you to share it with me in the comments.

  1. Can't wait to read through all of these. We've done overnight oats and they're great. I have a few recipes we've made on Pinterest that were good. I leave the house at 6am so grab and go breakfasts are necessary!!
