Weekend Reading

Hey Y'all!

I know I haven't posted ANY recipes this week, but I thought I'd at least fit in one post this weekend - even though it's not a recipe, I wanted to share a few of my favorite posts from other bloggers that I read this week. Enjoy your weekend and check out the blogs below while you have your Saturday pancakes! ;)

The first post I want to share is from Come Home For Comfort. I discovered this blog a little over a year ago and loved it immediately. As a homebody, just the name of the blog drew me in. :) She has great posts every week. My favorites are her marriage Monday posts & her grocery haul/meal plan posts. This past week,she had a post about why she serves meals at the table. The post was perfect! I was raised in a family that ate together at the table every night (except for an occasional pizza movie night) & I really value/appreciate being raised to do that. I know so many people who can't remember the last time they sat at the table with their siblings and parents for a meal and I think that's so sad! My husband loves eating on the sofa because of the 'comfiness', so we eat about 2 meals a week there. But we try to have most of our meals at the table. Our conversations are so much better at the table and we linger and take out time enjoying the food instead of inhaling it mindlessly like we do on the sofa. Honestly, I think it's good for our marriage, and one day our family, to have that time together at the meal table. Anyway, go check out Whitney's post!

The second post I want to share is from the Brown Eyed Baker. She had a baking basics post that I found helpful. I was not aware of the difference in #3 & I had never taken the time to check my oven's temp accuracy as mentioned in #4. Go read it for some quick tips!

Finally, I have this post about young marriage to share. As someone who was engaged at 19 and married at 20, I have felt the judgement and just pure hate (from some very bitter people) in regards to marrying 'so young'. Articles like this one from other young wives always encourage me. She has some good posts and while you're at it, also check out the blog she writes with her mom -
They have a lot of good posts for both the new wife and the seasoned wife.

Have a good weekend everyone! It's going to be cold here, so I'll be spending most of it inside wishing for spring. At least I can enjoy this "spring-themed" vase! My older sister gave me an antique strawberry vase when I got married, and I think it's so pretty! I've only used it as decoration the past couple of spring/summers, but I think some strawberry lemonade and/or strawberry wine will be filling it this year. :)
