Here are the Featured posts from last week!
Kimberly chose Time waits… from our very own Abiola from Ramblings of a Naija Momaholic. “She was speaking my language with this post. Most people will have regrets later in life about the things that they didn’t do rather than about the things that they did.”
Kimberly chose Easy Dinner Idea: Caprese Tortilla Pizzas Recipe from Home Cooking Memories.”Super easy recipe that I can’t wait to try! Already pinned.”
Abiola chose License to Kill, Literally from our very own Mari from Living in Mommywood. “My heart breaks at the recent happenings around the world and we must collectively condemn and start taking steps to raise our children right.”
Mari also chose this post. “The next one I chose was my own and not because I think I’m all that but because I feel that in light of times we are living in yes we want to keep cooking, baking, sewing, improving but we almost most start making time for talking. We are trying to cover reality with distractions and I think it’s time to start facing some truths in order to start healing and changing. Silence is not an answer ignorance is not bliss, humanity needs repair. Mothers, parents kindness and love hold the answer.”
Abiola chose Printable Color Flash Card Flip Book from Crystal & Co. “This really useful flip book from Crystal Land Comp will come in handy in teaching young preschoolers colors.”
Mari chose 25 Homemade Cheesecake Recipes Your Family Will Beg You to Make from Crystal & Co. “Crystal’s cheesecake share I mean there is one for every occasion and I love me some cheesecake!”
April chose 10 Secret Flight Booking Hacks You Never Knew About – Do they work? from Travel – The New Living – See More, Do More, Be More! As flying moves up my to-do list and having to purchase tickets for five, I need all the hacks I can get.”
April chose 4 Proven Ways to Healthy Eating on a Road Trip from Simplify Life with Mrs. R. “Sticking with the travel theme, I also need some ways to get out of the drive thru and eat healthy.”
Stacey chose Lemon Gooey Butter Cookies from Creatively Homemade. “Oh these look absolutely divine! Even though I am a major choco-holic, I love anything lemon, equally as much. I can’t wait to try these! Thank you so much for sharing!”
Stacey chose Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies from The Red Painted Cottage. “Absolutely wonderful, two of my favorite combos. These would get devoured, very quickly, in my family. Thank you so much for sharing!”
Tiffany chose PTSD: My Life from Anything but Typical. “Candice truly enlightened me with her open and honest glimpse in her life with PTSD. I admit I started reading assuming it would be one thing. Learning that PTSD isn’t always caused by a physical war or battle but can also be the result of a traumatic medical situation is something I am grateful to her for teaching me.”
Tiffany chose Building Your Essential Routine from Organizing Moms. “I am so guilty of overestimating what I can get done and usually end up stacking my To Do List way more than I should. Katie’s tips on how to pick the essentials is going to help with that a lot.”
Sarah chose Fajitas: Stop Complaining and Start Cooking! from Big Hungry Shelby. “In this post, Shelby talks about both the history of fajitas and a simple way to make them at home. As a California girl, I’m a big fan of food that has even a vaguely Mexican vibe, and I’ll have to try out this recipe soon (with the addition of avocado, because, where I’m from, avocados are everything…).”
Sarah chose Our Silence is Making it Worse… from Dancing in Freedom. “In this post, the author connects to a big part of what I’m feeling with the current racial climate – I worry about it, and then I can sleep at night. There’s a part of me that doesn’t have the “right” to worry in the same ways that non-white people do, but there’s a bigger part that has to worry more – who are we as a nation if we cannot stand up for each other?”
Heather chose Root Beer Float Smoothie from Courtney’s Cookbook. “I love root beer floats, and this recipe seems like the perfect healthy twist on a yummy summer treat.”
Heather chose Blackened Chicken Spinach Salad from Cooking LSL. “This is a beautiful healthy salad. I love the idea of adding blueberries.”
Natasha chose The Process of Singleization – When One Becomes Too Independent for a Relationship from Diary of a Single Mom on the Grind. “I can completely relate to this post. My standards have always been relatively high when it comes to relationships, and when I became a mother – those standards became lax in some areas and stronger in others. But to truly find a relationship and find love, you have to be open to options. You have to be willing to take a chance on love. And breaking away from the thought that it’s best to be alone. Thanks for sharing this post – great reminder for me!”
Natasha chose Shit My Kids Say… from The Mad Mommy. “Our kids really say some off-the-wall crazy stuff…yes they do! This was a great post just touching on some of the stuff they say to make us look at them sideways LOL. Thanks for sharing!”
