Whipped up a little post of some fun things I've loved around the internet and a few things you should probably go buy. 

LISTEN TO: The Glorious in the Mundane (by Christy Nockels) + God Centered Mom Podcast.
These are two of my favorite Podcasts right now—linked are 2 great episodes to listen to while you tackle those dishes + pile of laundry.

LAUGH AT: Church Hunters
This made me laugh/cry and also embarrassed some of those actual phrases have come out of my mouth (insert monkey covering eyes emoji)

You are Free by Rebekah Lyons(1.99 on the Kindle today)
The Undoing of St. Silvanus by Beth Moore (Her first novel) Totally not what I expected, but I'm liking it. Listened to this podcast about the process of her writing it—made me love her even more and immediately download it to my kindle.
Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham (listened on audible in her voice) Love love loved.

The C Word
Geeking out on documentaries lately because there's nothing good on TV. Super informative about what causes cancer, how to stay healthy, and all that stuff that makes you want to drink kale juice all day long.
Chef's Table:
This series goes into the creativity and brilliant mind of famous chefs—and I'm loving it. Jeremy was completely bored, but I am too with all his Life Below Zero and Alaska shows. Marriage takes sacrifice.

PRINT: I’m obsessed with this quote by Jill Briscoe.
Her talk at the IF Gathering about brought me to my knees—how God's using each one of us, right where we are for His glory. (insert praise hands emoji!) Here’s a little snippet of her talk and the link to the free print.

PONS: I've found the actual perfect shoe of all time (shown at top). Comfortable. Doesn't rub my heels. My toe nails don't have to be painted. My friends are tired of me talking about them so much—but I can't stop—they're the perfect Spring shoe I tell you. (I have the one on the far right in "sand")
The Yummiest GARDENIA Candle:
Candles get a line item in our budget.  I've been on the look out for the Gardenia Fig candle by Capri Blue for weeks and to my dismay and confusion, it has been discontinued. I'll give you a million dollars if you have one stashed away. This one came in close second + is 100% beeswax so it feels worth the $ (cheapest price from Houzz).
+ These must-haves from Whoa, Wait Walmart:  Here (in black stripe) and Here (in black)

FOLLOW: 2 new fun follows for ya
@bevcooks: hysterical + some of the yummiest recipes (her Instagram stories make me laugh snort)
@thelazygenius: like her blog a lot, and think we'd be friends in real life.

more about that Instant Pot
A lot of you were very confused + curious about this mysterious appliance after this post. Here is a great infomercial that you will accidentally not be able to stop watching. (here’s a link to The Instant Pot I have, but any pressure cooker will do)

COOK: Healthy Egg Rolls
Actually not as hard as I thought (this was my first time) but still feel I deserve a tiny medal for this labor of love crowd-pleaser of a meal. Also, the only thing making these *healthier* than regular egg rolls is the coconut oil ;)

LISTEN: Seeds Family Worship + The Rizers
Because my kids (and I) are memorizing scripture without realizing it. I cannot get THIS ONE out of my head. The songs are a little annoying, but catchy as heck. (Both on Spotify)

LISTEN: Your new back porch playlist

our little life on the reg
and this one only took 12 bribes and 3 spankings
