Sample Saturday

Good Morning! Please spend a few minutes this Memorial Day weekend to remember and honor those who have sacrificed for our freedom.

Here are some great blog posts from this week.

Kisses and Kiddos

Forming a Baby-Sitting Co-Op – To Love, Honor, and Vacuum shares a great idea for swapping baby-sitting nights with other young families. There’s even a link to another online resource for finding “official” co-ops.

Right and Wrong Reasons to Want a Healthy Marriage – This post from The Romantic Vineyard is very challenging. Striving for a healthy marriage is good, but the motivation is important as well.

The Importance of Prayer– A powerful reminder from The Confident Mom of the blessing and responsibility we have to pray for our families.


Homemade Ranch Dressing – In my opinion, ranch dressing is the only thing that stands a chance of making vegetables remotely edible, and this recipe from Joy the Baker looks fabulous.

Blackberry Lemonade – Lemonade is one of the best things about summer, and this homemade version from Pink Parsley would be perfect at any barbecue.

Cheeseburger Quesadillas – Add a Pinch has this interesting take on the classic cheeseburger-and-special-sauce routine.

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream– Tasty Kitchen shares this recipe for another summer treat: homemade ice cream. I love the chocolate graham cracker mix-in.

Just for Fun and Giggles

I’d Rather be Short– I found this set of funny cartoons celebrating short-ness over at Chipper Things. As a short person myself, I loved this set of doodles.

Making Sure Everyone Knows Your Fiance Isn’t Living with You – Stuff Christians Like talks about some of the crazy things Christians say to make sure others know they aren’t “living in sin.” It’s been a while since Big Man and I were engaged, but I think we used a few of these, especially around people we met at church functions.

And here’s a final giggle for you.

Enjoy your long weekend!
