weekly highlights {12}

Taking time to make a list of my favorite things from the week always feels good, but I need those little reminders now more than ever. I hope you find something new to enjoy too! Here are my picks from last week.

Wearing green for St. Patrick's Day! 


  • Parmesan Chicken - I don't make parmesan chicken very often because for some reason in my head it's this complicated thing to make. But this recipe from Everyday Reading is pretty quick and easy and tastes delicious! 
  • Goat Cheese Guacamole Burgers - A few of my favorite things combined into one? Yes please. This recipe is pretty extra, with caramelized onions, guac, two cheeses, and BBQ mayo, but I made them simpler with just the stuffed burgers and guacamole, and they were still amazing. 
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars - Classic. Comforting. Yum. 


  • From the Front Porch podcast: Playlist Meets Booklist - I loved this mashup of books and music on one of my favorite book podcasts. (I know, I have a new favorite book podcast every week.) 


  • We Don't Eat Our Classmates! - We stocked up on some library books right before they closed and this is one of the ones we got. Both Violet and Jona think it's hilarious. 


  • The generosity I've seen during this pandemic - So many companies are making their resources free right now to help parents teach their kids while at home. We've been loving the daily lessons on Scholastic but plan to check out more of what's out there next week. 
  • Jona's thoughts on skills
    • After missing several shots in the basketball hoop in his room, Jona tells me, "You just need to aim for the white square." I tell him, "I know buddy, I'm just not that great. But that's okay, I'll live." Jona says, "Yeah, you don't die from not being very good at something. Well, I guess if you're not good at driving a car you could get into a car crash. Then you might die." 


  • Favorite leggings from Amazon - My coworker turned me on to these inexpensive, yet pretty well-made leggings last year. I have them in black but just ordered this space dye dark blue pair. They're nice and thick and they have a pocket! 

I'd love to hear some of the things you've been loving lately!
