weekly highlights {6}

I hope you all like reading this round-up of weekly highlights, because I have so much fun writing it. Thinking about what I'm going to add for each post helps me focus on things that bring joy throughout the week. Anyway, here are my highlights for last week.

I don't get too excited about football, but these two were all about our Chiefs!


  • The Baked Brownie - I trust the Brown-Eyed Baker for dessert recipes, so when she said this was a top notch brownie recipe I knew it would be the perfect thing to make for a Superbowl Party. With the Chief's win, maybe they're lucky brownies too? 
  • One Pot Spaghetti and Meat Sauce - This is truly a one-pot meal and it's one we love. If I'm craving a traditional spaghetti dinner, this is what I make. 


  • Peace Like a River - This novel was beautifully written, quiet, and an interesting balance of being rooted in reality, yet with hints of the miraculous. I'll share more about it in my next reading round-up. 
  • H is for Hawk - I listened to this memoir on audio and liked it okay, but I struggled to get into it. 
  • Pirate's Lullaby: Mutiny at Bedtime - this has been Violet's book of choice just about every night of the week. It rhymes, it's about a pirate, it's main character is a kid who doesn't want to go to bed--it's right up her alley. 


  • Edit Your Life podcast Episode 187: Living Your Best Frugal Life - I loved the discussion between host Christine Coe and her guest Amiyrah Martin about living a frugal, yet joyful, life. Amiyrah had some great ideas for reframing the narrative (holla Forever 35 fans!) on what frugality means.


  • Read-aloud book generator - Sarah Mackenzie of the Read-Aloud Revival podcast (one of my faves!) created this awesome quiz that will help you get ideas for books to read aloud to your child(ren). It's so fun and I'm always looking for read-aloud ideas! 
  • Jona's interest in reading - Jona has always loved being read to, but has been less than enthusiastic about reading himself. However, in the past month his confidence has been building and he's been excited about reading (yay!). He's really into the Dog Man series, and while those are definitely not books I would choose, I am happy to give him anything that makes him want to read. 
What are some of your highlights from the week?
