Kidgets Diapers from Family Dollar are a great value - and don't leak, even on my busy baby girl. And that works for me!

Recipe for Pizza Rice Bowl - http://www.givinguponperfect.com/2015/01/pizza-rice-bowls-a-warm-healthy-snack/

This Pizza Rice Bowl literally took 2 minutes to make, and it was the perfect after-school snack to keep my 7yo from getting hangry (hungry + angry). Bonus - she didn't eat it all, so I finished it off and kept myself from getting hangry as well! It would make a great lunch, too!

I've learned this one the hard way. How about you?

"Since I heard it last week, the phrase “most important thing about you” has been playing in my head in a loop. And I’ve wondered – What is the most important thing about me? And then I wondered if those who know me would answer that question the same way I would. And then I started thinking about how “the most important thing” changes as our seasons change. Sometimes my brain just won’t quit."

My little brother is quite the cook - and was kind enough to share his recipe for brownies with us today! (Never mind the fussing he does over my habit of using a gasp! mix to make brownies. The teasing is worth getting this recipe!!)

"While being stubborn is a big part of what makes our marriage hard, it’s also a huge part of what makes our marriage last. Because we refuse to quit. We refuse to quit trying, to quit working, to quit loving. We refuse to give in or give up. We’re stubborn – and I’m glad."
