Worth Reading

I know there are lots of good articles out there,
but these are some of my recent favorites...

The Great Pie Round Up has an amazing assortment of pie recipes and pictures

I love the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe and would love to give it a try in the new year.  Katie does a great job of explaining the process of 30 Outfits 30 Days Challenge.
Can someone please send me some acorns so I can DIY Metallic Acorns??

April always makes her low carb dinners look delicious 
and I'm anxious to give these burgers a try ASAP.

I've definitely been inspired to give more compliments after reading Say Something Nice

I have never made my own granola bars, but this recipe makes me want to give it a try.
I am usually opposed to freezing food to eat later, but Dorothy makes a pretty convincing argument that it is quite possible to successfully freeze treats.

This article has definitely made me STOP and snuggle my baby more

An amazing piece on Intentional Friend Making that spoke to me because I felt like I've been in the new friend making zone a lot lately with all of our moves.

This article got a lot of attention recently Being a Stay-at-Home Parent is a Luxury... for your Spouse

I'm currently read a REAL book called Love Does by Bob Goff and it's excellent.

I just read The First Christmas Ever picture book by Dennis Jones.
 *I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
It's a cute Christmas story geared for elementary aged children.  There are many detailed illustrations to help tell the story and it's written in a comic book style with pictures placed everywhere.  The emotions of the story are definitely captured in the faces of the characters.  The story is accurate and kids would definitely enjoy this story format.  It's easy to read and would be engaging for young readers.  I can see the draw to buy more Biblical books in this serious if your child enjoyed this book. 

Have you read or written anything noteworthy lately??
Leave a link below and I'd LOVE to check it out.


  1. Thanks for the great reads! I think I may be able to get you some acorns, we recently moved to Oregon - plenty here, just have to find them. I might even have a tree in the backyard. I'll look today! Still in my PJs now!

    1. Just a follow up - I'm finding lots of the tops/hats but no acorn type things. I assume they are getting eaten? I'll keep my eyes open!

  2. These have been great reads! Olivia is great at spotting acorns, but you'd have to pry them out of her mouth first. The one about holding your baby, I did a post called 'you're gonna miss this' when pregnant and put a print up in her nursery, knowing I would be frustrated by her not sleeping and looking at it would make me realize that I will miss her being little. I try to cling to every moment, because there aren't near enough of them and I know I will want my baby back.


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
