Favorites of the Week

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.


I came across this picture from my sister-in-law’s wedding in August. Man, I love our little family! And my eShakti dress (courtesy of the company) totally delivered. It was perfect for this casual, summer wedding. I may order another dress or two for this summer.

Favorite links from … the past three weeks (sorry!):

Recipes I want to try:

Favorite moments:

  • Joshua just as happy the eighteenth time he goes down the slide as the first.
  • Everyone going to school ALL THE DAYS THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO this week.
  • David’s intensity and focus as he makes train tracks or plays with a Lite-Brite.
  • Scrubbing floors on my hands and knees. I know, weird. But the satisfaction of having them clean made it well worth it, and hard cleaning can be really therapeutic.
  • Speaking of therapeutic, writing.
  • Water aerobics.
  • Reading The Boxcar Children to Libbie.
  • David making his dove puppet go, “Coo! coo!” at church Wednesday.
  • Telling kids in children’s church about the family line from Rahab to Jesus. It makes me so excited!
  • How much the kids laugh every time they see “Donuts for Benny,” the VeggieTales Silly Song.
  • Joshua saying, “Bi-bible, Buck Denver!” To everyone he meets. Including a dog at my chiropractor’s office.
  • Beating back a nasty sinus headache with lavender oil. Oh, it is a wonder!

Favorite offline reading: I am trying to make it through Daring Greatly. The problem is I keep having a breakdown and having to process a lot of memories and information as I read it. It’s going very slowly.

How are you doing? I’ve really had a pretty crazy week – not activity-wise, mostly emotionally. My dad is having open-heart surgery next week, so I’ll be traveling and would love your prayers for him and my mom.
