Here were my favorites from last week!
Chatting Over Chocolate // You Have Worth
Given all the sad news about people choosing to end their own life, I loved Brenda’s encouraging reminder that
we all have worth in the eyes of our Creator! And that can give tremendous hope to a hurting world.

It sounds like Kenzie had a fun week, but you MUST check out this post for her recipe for her
loaded sweet potato sliders! It totally inspired me to make those, but with a spicy black bean patty. It would be delicious!

So many fun things for her last week! Bridal shower, dance recital and a zoo visit! Thanks for linking up with us!
Can’t wait to read some more fun things this week!
Our week was a bit more low key than past weeks. Maybe we’re doing summer too hard! HA! But we’ve all been a bit tired. My husband has also had a super busy work week. It’s been crazy.
We kicked off the weekend with another speared lunch! We had our summer mom camp compadres over for lunch for more spearing, and everyone loved it!
Mom Summer Camp fun continues this week! The original plan was focusing on Around the World, with a different country each day. I started off that ambitious, but we fizzled as the week went on. I lost steam. But Monday was learning about the continents in general, and then Tuesday we learned about Ancient Egypt!
I chose Ancient Egypt purely because I had these PlayMobil pyramid sets from my Mother-in-Law’s teaching days, and I wanted to use them. Both kids went crazy! It’s still set up in the play room because we’ve had so much fun with it.
Our next day was to be a day at our buddy’s house, learning about South Korea! But, alas, they were all sick. So we learned from a distance. One of the fun activities was to be learning a Korean fan dance, and Elizabeth loved it! She even went into her room at quiet time, declaring she was going to practice her “North Carolina” fan dance. She wouldn’t let me film it, but it was adorable. Next week is our Pirate Week, to coincide with the VBS’s theme of “Shipwrecked”. We’re SO excited about that!
If you follow me on insta, you may have seen my personal crises unfolding about my beloved veggie burger getting changed. I adore the Morningstar Farms Griller Original, but this week I cracked open a new package to discover it tasted different, and not in a good way! It was awful. I have sent messages (4 to be exact) to the company, telling them my disappointment! I even have a thread on my personal FB page about how it’s changed. It’s consumed my week 🙂 But yesterday I spent time hopping around to a few stores to stock up on the original flavor before the new is a permanent replacement.
Finally, Netflix recommendation! We’re almost through watching The Staircase on Netflix, and it’s fantastic! (No spoilers if you’ve seen it already!!!)
If you loved Making of a Murderer or other true crimes docs, then you’ll love this. It’s set in my city, Durham, NC, and it’s an unfolding 10+ year case. Add it to your queue!
And now, it’s time to link up your posts! Can’t wait to cruise around and see what you all have been blogging about!
