Good Morning and Happy Saturday! Here’s this week’s post roundup.

Does you Spouse Do His/Her Fair Share - There is a lot of wisdom in this Assume Love post about measuring your spouse’s contribution. It really is a no-win game to play.

Teaching Children to Pray - This post from The Confident Mom is full of practical advice and lots of encouragement. I love listening to Little Man pray before bed, as he thanks God for everything he can think of.

How to Preserve a Husband- Check out this cute poem posted on the Victory Homemaking blog.

Crumb Cake Muffins with Creamy Espresso Filling - You really can’t go wrong with crumb topping and coffee flavor, and these muffins from the vanilla sugar blog look perfect.

Artichoke Bruschetta - The Girl Who Ate Everything shares a recipe for this simple appetizer. I think it looks like a perfect accompaniment to a glass of wine for an at home date with Big Man.

Quinoa Salad with Watermelon and Feta - I love the watermelon and feta combination, so even though I’m a little scared of quinoa, this dish from Annie’s Eats might get me to reconsider.

Homemade Fudgesicles - This recipe from AlaskaMom looks yummy and super simple. It sounds like a great project for this weekend, as the weather here is getting hot.

Bubble Wrap Bracelet- I didn’t know bubble wrap could be used for anything other than shipping and stress release, but this craft from EPBOT is really cool.

Rainbow Bubble Snakes – Honestly, a lot of those “Crafts to do with your kids” are way beyond my skill level. But this one from Housing a Forest looks simple enough even for me, and it uses regular household items! Win.

And just for giggles, there’s this:

Enjoy your weekend!

We Are Far Too Easily Pleased - Yet another inspiring and challenging post from Becoming Minimalist.

The 1 Lie The Devil Always Tells - I don’t link to theology posts that often but this one from Stuff Christians Like (this one is a serious post) was so excellent I had to include it. This is Biblical truth in a down-to-earth post that really spoke to me.

The 5 Disciplines of a Successful Vacation- Great list from The Romantic Vineyard, and very timely as we move into summer vacation season.

Fig, Prosciutto, and Goat Cheese Pizza - When it comes to pizza, I’m usually a cheese-and-pepperoni girl, but sometimes I like something a little more adventurous, and this pizza from My life as a Mrs. sounds fantastic.

Grilled Pineapple Guacamole - Grilled pineapple and avocados? I’m afraid to make this dip from Annie’s Eats because I know if I do I will probably eat all of it in a day.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte - Big Man loves the chocolate-peanut butter combo, and I know once he sees a picture of this dessert from Cook Like a Champion, it will be on the “Please make soon” list. That’s OK, I like peanut butter and chocolate too!

Virgin Strawberry Daiquiris - Check out this beautiful mocktail from the ladies of That’s What We Said.

Just for Fun and Giggles

Fathers Day Ideas- The ladies of The Letter 4 have this great roundup of non-girly crafts the kids can help make and give Dad for Father’s Day.

Six Ways to Show Dad You Care - And if you aren’t up to making any of those crafts, you can just buy Dad a cake. Just make sure it doesn’t look like any of these Wrecks.

And a geeky funny. This is so true!

Enjoy your weekend!

Good Morning! Are you enjoying the start of summer? Bring on the barbecues, lemonade, and water slides! Here are some great blog posts from this week.

Praying for Your Children - This post from The Confident Mom is both encouraging and challenging. It is amazing the blessing and responsibility God gives us parents to pray for our children.

What Does it Mean to be Feminine? - I really liked this Hot, Holy and Humorous post about what Biblical femininity looks like, and how we can learn from those examples.

Why be Married? For the Wednesday Walk to Breakfast- This Assume Love post talks about the importance of those special traditions held just between spouses and how they strengthen the marriage.

Letting Go – This post from adoptingjames discusses the Christian themes, especially regarding adoption, in the Pixar movie Up! (which is one of the greatest movies ever made, in my not-very-humble opinion)

Confetti Cookie Dough Bites - These little treats from Bake Your Day look  delicious and they include sprinkles!

Cherry Rosemary Sea Salt Foccacia - This appetizer from A Cozy Kitchen is beautiful and the combination of flavors sounds very fresh and summery.

Hot & Cheesy Corn Dip - I love fresh corn in the summer and am always looking for new ways to eat it. Here’s a unique dip from How Sweet It Is.

Nutella S’Mores Bars - Want. Now. (from Sugarcrafter)

A Primer on the Shotgun- Yes, really. Even if you are not so much into owning or using firearms, this Art of Manliness post is detailed and fascinating.

12 Signs you Attend Church in the Suburbs - As someone who has attended quite a few suburban churches, I found this Stuff Christians Like list hilarious and spot-on.

Quick Paper Crafts – If you are a crafty-type person, or just someone who appreciates cool crafts from afar (like me), you’ll appreciate the inspiration in this EPBOT post (complete with lots of pictures).

And just for giggles, there’s this:
