Thursday Things

Happy Thursday! These are some of the many things on my mind this week:

(1) While I am not a huge football fan, I was a huge fan of the H&M David Beckham commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. Definitely made the game worth watching.

(2) This is the only time you will ever see me link to

(3) I really want think Bubba needs one of these, but I suppose this could work, as well.... {hint hint. for anyone interested in purchasing him a birthday present}

(4) Or I could just make it myself with this great tutorial. Which is most likely what will end up happening, because those light panels are so darn expensive!

(5) Totally making this Strawberry Honey Butter. ASAP. 

(6) Like, I should have made it yesterday .... that is how bad I want to stuff my face with it.

(7) My short list of books I want/need to read:

You Can't Make Me: But I Can Be Persuaded by Cynthia Tobias

All about raising a strong willed child. It was suggested during my Moms Mentoring Moms group on Tuesday; and I promptly added it to my holds list at the library. {like while the person was telling me the name, I was searching for it. does that give you a hint about how badly I need to read this?} 

Parenting with Love & Logic by Foster Cline & Jim Fay

This one was also suggested in my group...I also quickly added it to my hold list.

 Love and Logic Magic for Early Childhood by Jim Fay & Charles Fay, Ph.D.

Then I found this one on Amazon, and I am so bummed it's not available at my library because I think it is more along the lines of what I need {not that there is anything wrong with the other one}. Looks like I'm going to have to shell out some dough for this one.

Book Description
Publication Date: September 1, 2011
Author Sara Horn always admired the Proverbs 31 wife, but when she became a busy writer and mother, she deemed this model to be dated and impossible. Or is it? Join Sara as she heads into a one-year domestic experiment and offers full access to see if this biblical model can be embraced by a modern woman—even one who can’t sew.
With humility and humor, Sara sets out to pursue the Proverbs 31 characteristics through immersing herself in all things domestic, but when her family's situation changes and she must return to a full-time job, she's forced to look at the Proverbs 31 woman with a whole new viewpoint. Through it all, she and readers discover:
  • what it means to be a godly woman and a wife
  • how investing in family and faith refines priorities as a spouse and a parent
  • how mistakes are opportunities for growth
This thought-provoking, surprising, and entertaining personal account will inspire women to try their own experiments in living out God’s purpose for their lives.

Check out the blog. And check out the P31 Pinterest Scavenger Hunt too!

(8) I'm really diggin' the Etsy shop Eleven Twenty Eight right now

(9) And I'm kind of totally dying over this lined 60s dress coat

(10) OMG. OMG. OMG. We have to have one. <--This is what you will be saying when you go check out this DIY Sensory Swing at Play At Home Mom. {Did you click on it? I can read your mind, right?}

(11)  And, if you just said no, you're lying because that swing is pretty. awesome. fo shizzle. But, go check out Swing Painting, and you will really be wishing you had one and were a kid again. Word.

(12) If you haven't noticed, sometimes I think I'm gangsta. 

Have a FABULOUS day!
