Sample Saturday

Good Morning! I hope you are enjoying some nice spring weather and have a relaxing weekend planned. There were some great blog posts this week; here are my favorites.

Kisses and Kiddos

Beauty vs. Sexuality – This isn’t a blog post (it’s a Relevant Magazine article), but I thought it was so good that I had to include it here. It is nice to see the modesty/lust issue discussed with Biblical grace rather than the guilt and shame that is so commonly used.

The Kind of Advice a Mom Likes to Receive – A sweet post from Cherish the Call about one of “those days” as a mom and remembering to focus on the things that truly matter.

The Gift of Bragging– Tips on how to brag about your husband from The Generous Wife. Such a good way to create a positive and encouraging environment.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T – This post from The Daily Stumbler is definitely a challenging look on what the Bible says about respect.


Parmesan-Pesto Crusted Halibut – This fish dish from Pink Parsley looks fresh and light and perfect for Springtime!

Blueberry Bagels – Homemade bagels are on my baking “bucket list” and this recipe and the accompanying photos from Annie’s Eats have given me the inspiration to try my hand at bagel-making soon.

Caramelized Onion Greek Yogurt Dip– This homemade dip looks really yummy, even to a non-chips-and-dip person like me.

Coca-Cola Cupcakes with Salted Peanut Butter Frosting – Even though I’m not really familiar with the peanut-in-coca-cola thing that is apparently part of Southern cuisine, these cupcakes from Sprinkle Bakes look delicious. Sweet, salty, and chocolate? Sign me up.

Cream Cheese Filled Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread – Next time you need to make a completely delicious and over-the-top decadent breakfast treat (that would feed a small army), Cookies & Cups has got you covered with this recipe.

Just for Fun and Giggles

Stuff Christians Like – SCL gets a lot of attention this week because there were two posts that had both Big Man and me laughing out loud. Giggles galore about two common church events: worship leader “Simon Says” and babies crying.

Top 9 Ways to Get Ready for Your Kid’s Spring Sports Season – While Little Man and Little Lady aren’t old enough for sports yet, I can still relate to these. I know I dragged my parents to plenty of my sports events, and they didn’t even have the option of playing Words with Friends back then!

(No Angry Birds either!)

Enjoy your weekend!
