Sample Saturday

Good Morning! Can you believe it’s August already? Pretty soon we’ll be talking about back-to-school and fall colors. But there are still a few weeks of summer left, and I hope you are enjoying every minute.  Here’s is my list of favorite posts from this week

Kisses and Kiddos

Starting Your Day Off Right – The Confident Mom shares some practical tips for making mornings peaceful and productive, even for those who aren’t “early birds” by nature.

Trade Up – I love this Becoming Minimalist post. The viewpoint is challenging and inspiring and written in straightforward (not preachy) manner.


Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake Bites – These bite-sized treats from Shugary Sweets look perfect for a summer party.

How To Make Cake Flour – Add a Pinch has a quick and easy substitute for those times when you are halfway through making a recipe an realize you don’t have cake flour. (Please tell me I’m not the only one who does that!)

Blue Margarita – I can’t get over how beautiful this cocktail looks, and I bet it tastes even better. Thanks to the Foodie Bride for the beverage inspiration!

Grilled Peach Salad with Peach Cumin Dressing– It’s peach season here and this salad from A Farmgirl’s Dabbles looks like the perfect recipe to try. Peach and cumin together? Intriguing.

Espresso Mousse Brownies – Another incredibly beautiful dessert from Darla at Bakingdom. Espresso, chocolate, and marshmallows, need I say more?

Just for Fun and Giggles

Who’s Crazy Now? – This Cakewrecks post had me alternately laughing at Jen’s writing and cringing at the cake disasters on display. (Warning: the “mutant strawberry ladybug” cannot be unseen)

Best Church Bulletin Ever – Seriously. This is the best thing I have seen in a while  (link from Stuff Christians Like)

And this made me giggle:
