Food for Thought
30 is Not the New 20 - "Forget about having an identity crisis and get some identity capital - do something that adds value to who you are, do something that's an investment to who you might want to be next." Clinical psychologist Meg Jay gives a TED talk de-bunking the popular cultural notion that the 20s are a throwaway decade.
Generation Like - I'm still digesting this one. PBS's Frontline takes an in depth look at the way that social media has changed marketing and questions how the culture of "likes' is fundamentally changing the Millennial Generation.
We May Be Missing Something Very Important - "the sense of entitlement our kids exhibit is fueled by a parenting model that is obsessed with giving our children what they want and by making our kids the center of our lives." I posted this article on Facebook this week, but I loved it so much I'm including it here too. :) The author, Kristin Welch, also did a podcast on Moody Radio with Chris Fabry this week about the post, listen to Hour 2 here.
For the Mamas
10 New Picture Books to Check Out - we're at the library about once a week these days and finding picture books that my children love listening to as much as I love reading is always a challenge. Everyday Reading is one of my new favorite blogs to check in with - she speaks book fluently, which as you know, is one of my love languages.
The Dress You Will Actually Wear this Summer - I just bought #6 and am loving it. Trying to decide if it's fancy enough for a May beach wedding??
This Image. - can a 31 year old mom of 4 pull this off?
Crunches Are Not Enough - holding on to this for after #4's arrival
For the Home
100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread - this is the best recipe I've tried so far for whole wheat bread that is ACTUALLY 100% whole wheat. I'm having loads of fun testing recipes out in the new bread machine my MIL just gifted me.
Layered Photo Frame Decoration - I love this. Might be time to change up our gallery frame wall.
How to De-crystallize Honey - brilliant! This happens every now and then to my honey and now I have a solution.
