Saturday Shares

I wanted to share some things I came across during my internet and Pinterest traveling this week and earlier. I hope you like them, enjoy them, are moved and motivated by them.


This one made me laugh qutie a bit!


This Grilled Balsamic Bruschetta Chicken from the Picky Palate is very good, and quite healthy!  We have been having it at our house for almost a year now, and all 3 of us cannot get enough of it.  I highly suggest you make it this weekend or during the week, and you can quickly throw it all together on a busy evening.  I was out there grilling in 20 degree temps, just so we could have it again this week!

These Personal Sized Baked Oatmeal with Individual Toppings are what we are going to make this morning!  The Sugar-Free Mom is a genius!  We will soon have apple cinnamon and blueberry in the oven!


Sadly the website for this workout no longer exists, and I wish it did so I could share it with you.  I found this upper body workout last month and I love it!

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is a must read!  I know I told y’all that I was stuck at the beginning for awhile.  However, as soon as I sat down with a chunk of time to read I was immediately engrossed.  I was up late for 2 nights reading it, and on that second night I was up till 3 am to finish it.  Read this book now!  I would tell you more about it, but anything I write will give away something or foreshadow something in the story line, and I don’t want to ruin it for you.  I’ve also added Gone Girl to my Must Read Before You Die list.

Snowed in or just looking for something to do?  These homemade bath bombs are easy and fun to make, and your kids will love making them too!  Check them out at One Good Thing by Jillie.
