I Just Kept Spinning Book Review

Are you talking to your children about discrimination?  If not, you probably should be.  Chances are your child has already faced discrimination either from a peer or an adult that they come into contact with on a regular basis.  It's crazy, right?!  This week Moo and I revisited our discussion on discrimination when we read I Just Kept Spinning by debut children's book author Destini Bridges. 

Thankful Thursday | A Weekly List of Gratitude


Happy Thankful Thursday Y'all!!  We're in the process of hunkering down as we wait for Hurricane Irma to hit.  The weather reports for our area have been all over the place since there are conflicting reports on the path that she will end up taking.  Either way, I think that we can anticipate some strong winds and heavier than usual rain.  We're a few hours inland and I'm staying optimistic that we won't have any flooding and praying that we don't get any spin-off twisters either.

Raising kids is hard.  Teaching our kids how to love and accept the things that make them different and unique is harder.  From their peers to the media, our children will be bombarded with messages of "This is how you are supposed to look or everyone has to do xyz in order to fit in."

Happy Thankful Thursday!  How is July already almost half over?  I feel like June flew by so fast.  I know part of the reason for me is our move.  We've been so absorbed in getting settled in and trying to finalize details for renovations.  It just sucks because school starts earlier here and I feel like our summer break has been eaten up by house stuff.

I've always been a fan of Hillsong's music ministry and have been looking forward to Wonder, their new album since their last album, Of Dirt And Grace, dropped.  As a teenager and even into my young adult years, "Shout To The Lord" became my anthem of sorts as I struggled to deal with my father's decision to reject his family.  There were so many emotions warring inside of me as a young woman whose heart had been broken time and time again by the most important man in my life.

So about my two week blog hiatus, let's just say that I under estimated how much energy (mental and physical) one needs to move.  No, this wasn't our first move, but it was definitely our biggest.  It was also probably our most emotional move because we left behind the only place both kids have known as home, friends and our favorite shopping spot - Target.  Nevertheless, we are settling into our new home and here's everything I've been thankful for over these last few weeks.


In The Kitchen With Sun Basket


I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions.  Compensation for this post was provided and this post may contain affiliate links.

If there's one room in our home that I spend a lot of time in it's the kitchen.  Because there are some pretty serious food allergies in our family, I cook breakfast, lunch and dinner mostly from scratch every day.  When 2017 started, one of my goals was that I wanted to start mixing things up in the kitchen and exposing my family to new dishes.  So I was excited when Moms Meet reached out and offered us a chance to try out a Sun Basket Meal Kit.  I was delighted to find that they have meal options to suit a variety of dietary needs and restrictions.
