Good Morning, and Happy Cinco de Mayo! I hope you have some fun things planned for your weekend (Big Man and I get to see Avengers today!). There was lots of bloggy goodness this week. (Yes, “bloggy” is a word. I added it to my dictionary to get rid of the squiggly red line.) Here are some of my favorites.
Kisses and Kiddos
Lessons from Photography: See Beauty Differently– This lovely post is from a new-to-me blog, Lattes and Love. I really appreciated the reminder to seek out beauty in the everyday things and find a different way to view the world around me.
You Might be a Fundamentalist If – This is a “heavier” post than I usually include in Sample Saturday, but it was really challenging to me and covers an important subject. I definitely struggle with being a fundamentalist and this post was a good reminder to be more concerned with loving like Jesus did and less concerned with being right.
The Four F’s of Summer Parenting– The Confident Mom shares some practical tips for summer parenting when your kids are off school.
Changing Yourself – Excellent food for thought over at Assume Love about the right way to encourage your spouse to change.
Huevos Rancheros – Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with this classic breakfast treat, and check out the recipe and beautiful photos over at Annie’s Eats.
Bacon-Chipotle Guacamole – Bacon + Avocados + Chips = Snacktime WIN! Thanks to Pink Parsley for this amazing recipe.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Whoopie Pies – Cookies & Cups takes traditional whoopie pies to a whole new level with cookie dough filling.
Blackberry Sparklers – Check out this sweet, summery mocktail over at That’s What We Said.
Just for Fun and Giggles
Art Smiles – There’s a fun (and geeky) gallery of cool artwork over at the EPBOT blog.
The Judgment Olympics – What better way to prepare for this year’s summer games than to see a list of the medal-worthy events in the sport of judging people? This post is classic SCL: hilarious, but with a good bite of honest satire.
For those of you who enjoy reading flow-charts (I do), here’s one that is incredibly efficient
And here’s a bonus funny, just because!
Enjoy your weekend!
