YA Medieval Romance- An Uncertain Choice by Jody Hedlund

It only takes a second to walk down the YA aisle in most book stores before you realize that if you're looking for a clean, uplifting, and even innocent book, it's going to be very hard to find. I enjoy all types of novels, ranging from YA to historical fiction, both in the Christian realm and outside of it as long as it's a clean read. I want to be able to recommend books to my teenage daughter, and unfortunately many books in the YA genre today are not stories I'd want her to read.

When one of my favorite Christian authors, Jody Hedlund announced that she would be branching out into the YA genre with her newest novel An Uncertain Choice, I had a feeling that she'd bring to the table a story that I'd recommend to any book lover, no matter what the age. 
And how correct I was!

The Little Brown Bench Gets a Makeover

You know when you have a favorite piece of furniture, and it makes you sad to see it get worn out to the point that it's no longer usable? I have a favorite bench that was given to me, it fits perfectly on my front porch. It's served the purpose as a comfy seat while I'm waiting for my kiddos to walk home from the bus stop, a parking spot for flowers, early morning chats with the teenager before school.
Even the backdrop for several of my projects I've shown on my blog here.

Cheat on Your Ice Cream with Yogurt Popsicles! {Recipe} #MullerMoment

I’ll be honest, I’d have never in a million years imagined that I’d be a mom of five precious kids. As beautiful as life is, there have been times that I’ve wanted to hide in a closet somewhere just for a minute of peace and quiet. When they were all under the age of ten, just the mere thought of having a “Me Moment” seemed preposterous. It wasn’t until a good mommy friend of mine let me know that for my own sanity I needed to start taking a guilt free minute to focus on myself whenever I could sneak one in.

What does this have to do with yogurt popsicles you ask? Well, for me taking that me moment means different things at different times, and sometimes that means indulging in a little snack. My sweet tooth craves ice cream, but my waistline does not. A better-for-me alternative? Yogurt popsicles. Imagine my excitement when I recently found an in-store demo at Walmart for the new Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt!

Out Of All the Moments… Wood Plank Stained Heart {DIY}

When I shared my XOXO Wall Art I told you then that I don't decorate much for Valentine's Day, and that's still true. But, I do like browsing Pinterest and my favorite home decor magazines for something that strikes my fancy. For this stained heart project, I was inspired by the Striped Heart Plaque from Ballard Designs. Inspired being the key. That's different than figuring out a knock-of project. I like the simplicity of the heart on the planks, especially with the scripted quotes.

We like to celebrate Valentine's Day as a family. It's never been just my husband and I exchanging gifts with each other, we've always included our kiddos. And of course there's the class parties, teacher gifts, and Valentine's card exchanges. Over the years, I've realized that it's a sweet day to teach the kids about giving and blessing others. One of my favorite things to do is make goodies in the kitchen to give to friends, teachers, and neighbors. Often, my youngest son will join me and together we create a yummy goodie. This year, we're making M&M's® Red Velvet candy hearts.
