My family loves eating eggs but in personally knowing one can only have fried, scrambled, or boiled eggs so often before becoming bored, I needed some new go to suggestions. The Perfect Egg: A Fresh Take on Recipes for Morning, Noon, and Night cookbook has been a God-send. This book is a well of information and offers up over 70 fresh ideas for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, and desserts. I appreciate the work the authors have done in taking something as simple as an Egg and spotlighted it’s wonderful diversity to please even the most picky of palettes.

Joseph and the Colorful Coat By Brendan Powell Smith {Book Review}


Joseph and the Colorful Coat By Brendan Powell Smith is just one of many other stories in The Brick Bible for Kids series. In using LEGO , these renditions of well known Bible stories are sure to capture the interest of children of all ages. The story is completely illustrated using LEGO bricks and is done very well. The scenes chosen for the story stick true to the era, specific place in time, and culture. For example there’s pyramids, walls with Egyptian hieroglyphics, animals such as goats, cows, camels, and so forth. The characters attire and hair styles were was chosen well. I appreciate all the attention to detail that was obviously intricately thought out.

Red, Yellow, Blue (And a Dash of White, Too!) {Book Review}



Red, Yellow, Blue (And a Dash of White, Too!) illustrated and written by  Charles George Esperanza is a book that draws ones inner creativity out! In this story, we meet a young girl with a love for painting. She explores and tries all sorts of new things with every brush stroke, every color used, and creates such vividly imaginative scenes from start to finish! I love presenting my children with a book that demonstrates creativity being only limited to ones imagination. Art can seem messy but I believe the point here is that’s there’s no wrong way to go about it.

My Mother’s Day Weekend


My Mother’s Day was low key and I’m fine with that. The wind chime pictured above my son and daughter picked out for me as a gift! Isn’t it beautiful? They know I love Sunflowers and had been wanting a chime for the yard for a bit. What’s neat about this chime is that it’s also solar powered. At night, it emanates a soft glow in the center of the flower. It’s very pretty! There’s something calming about the chime sound it makes when a slight breeze comes our way. I love it’s not just a gift I can enjoy but everyone else too.
