*Some great toddler meal ideas!
*These Matilda Jane style pants  for myself and my girls for $20!
*This yummy salad.
*A DIY for pottery barn jute placemats.

3 Things About Me
*I love older, southern homes.
*I let my big kids dress themselves. They must be approved before leaving the house. This teaches them responsibility, decision making, and making good fashionable choices. Many force clothes on their children. My fear with that is, once they are given the task years later in life they will make poor ones from a lack of practice. My daughter already makes her own judgements on if something is appropriate or not without an argument because she has a guided freedom to dress as she thinks looks best.
*I have been married for 10 years this year. And couldn’t be happier.

Inspiring Me This Week

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9

It would be so much easier if we all new His way. Instead we must trust that He has something far better in mind.

My sweet hubby sent me flowers this week while he was on the road. That man is so thoughtful and I am so thankful to call him mine.

flowers

Have a great week!

3 Things About Me

*I sometimes start dancing in the middle of my workouts when a good song comes on. It’s probably very amusing to my kids.

Inspiring Me This Week
Being patient with others and with God. Sometimes God’s calling is made difficult by others or obstacles. I am working hard to be understanding and patient at all times, even when I can’t see His full plan.

Galatians 6:9 – And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
