I had a few random things I just really wanted to mention before the day was over...
~ If you are at all interested in eating healthy and using a "real food" kind of approach, you really should stop by Kitchen Stewardship (discovered her a while back through Musings of a Housewife). I love her blog! Her tagline is: Balancing God's gifts...one baby step at a time. She has done so much research on food questions and tries to present both sides of different topics. I trust her conclusions because of the thought and prayer she has put into them. She has a great post that includes a list of what to eat, what to avoid, and how to compromise. I'm going to print it out and work on improving things - one baby step at a time!
~ A friend gave me a Christian magazine to look at a few months ago called The Girlhood Home Companion. I don't have a daughter, but if I did I would subscribe to this special magazine! Each issue is a keepsake - filled with stories, craft ideas, wonderful recipes and more. It would make a lovely gift and would be fun for grandmothers and aunts to use to spend special time with granddaughters or nieces. It's published by Remembrance Press. I was familiar with some of the names involved with the magazine: Emily Rose and Breezy Brookshire (www.noblerosepress.com - I heard so many good things about the Brookshires from Sarah Mae at Like a Warm Cup of Coffee), and Ann Voskamp (www.aholyexperience.com). If you have daughters, be sure to check it out!
~ I finally got to go to Homegoods to shop today! It's been here a while, but I haven't been in - shocking I know! I officially like it! I officially do not like trying to maneuver a cart through the narrow aisles with many other carts going every which way. Sigh. But I got what I was looking for and made it out. I would like to go back when I have more time and just browse - cart-free.
~ Tomorrow is Chocolate Friday! That means you should find a chocolate post to link up on my blog! It's just nice to share the chocolate! :)
~ I feel the need to give you a warning instead of just springing it on you - I'm going to be taking a blog break for the rest of the Summer, starting next week. I know!! Tomorrow will be the last Chocolate Friday for the Summer and I'll have a post about my break on Monday and...that's it. I do hope to be back in September, feeling all fresh and fabulous! Don't be scared - you'll be OK. You can stop by and look at chocolate anytime you need to! :)
Have a lovely evening friends!
