Five Favorites (June 5th)

Five Favorites, hosted at

Some Favorites for this week:

1. I found a super cute pin that lead me to this great Sugar Free Mom's blog and made these (my actual muffins that I made from a pin that were not a pinstrosity):

They are my new favorite snack.  Her recipe is in the link...I tweaked it a little substituting only honey (1 cup), Soy Silk Light instead of 1% milk, and put the 'toppings' of blueberries and walnuts right in the batter.  Delicious!

2. Speaking of favorite blogs - I love Pinstrosity!  They have crazy pics like this...

That's a real shame about that pin - I really wanted to make myself some mac'n'cheese in a mug in the microwave!

3. I also get a huge kick out of this website of common woes...Passive Aggressive Notes!

Every time I read one I think "I should have thought of that when so-and-so did such-and-such."

4. New Roommates!  I got one this week and I'm still excited!  It's been almost 5 days, so we might be in the 'honeymoon period' or whatever you call the calm time when no bad can seemingly be's going to be much better than a few previous roommate situations.  I feel like I've only had one other in the 5 years I've lived in Charlotte.

5. I have two favorites in this pic:

First - Sister Edeva - her birthday was on Tuesday.
Second - my hair cut!  Had an awesome hair day then, hopefully it can be replicated a few times this week!

Well, that's all for this week!  Check out more favorites over at Moxie Wife!  Thanks for stopping by :)


  1. Oh, I'm in so much trouble. My productivity levels are going to take a huge hit now that you've told me about Passive-Aggressive Notes! Hilarious.

    1. the first few weeks are rough as you catch up, but once you are just read the 2 or 3 posted every day, you just need to schedule 5 minutes a day for the amazingness!

  2. ohhhhhh! #3 made me seriously, truly laugh-out-loud. Now I'm in the same boat as Hallie!

  3. Those notes look hilarious! Looking forward to the time waste-age :)

I Look Into my Inbox and What Did I See?

I receive the weekly notes from the Catholic Match Institute since my unsuccessful dabble in Online
Dating some time ago (link) and today's included the face of one of my favorite priests. A man who helped me become the Catholic woman, for better or worse, that I am today. He is doing a series of five videos for CM through Advent. The first two are below ... I encourage you to watch them and stay tuned for the next three! Fr. Ananias, OSB - what an Advent treat!

When Others Despise You

In general I appreciate when people like me, as I think most people do. For me, it's really hard when people dislike me, even if I don't have to be around them all of the time. I get anxious thinking about the next time we will be in the same location and if I'll be able to just kindly avoid them or if there will be an awkward confrontation. There's a line in scripture about how blessed we are when others despised us because they hated Him first. Him, being Jesus, of course.

But is that always the case? Am I applying a section of scripture to a situation to which it has no relationship? Am I using a passage of scripture to make myself feel better about the actions that I'm going to take, to justify it to myself and others? Am I manipulating the Lord's words to promote my own agenda in the name of the Lord?

I wonder this regarding many things. Passages like "The Lord will fulfill His promises" in relationship to my relationship status. Did He promise t…

Thoughts from A Color Run Volunteer

Well, we did it!  It's over and I'm back to my regular color.  All it took was some scrubbing in the shower and a big load of laundry!

So, how was it?  Well, we began looking like this:

and ended looking like this:

Yes - VERY pink!!!  It was awesome!

Now, the thoughts (play-by-play) of the day:

We began at 7am (actually an hour later than first expected).  When we arrived a few minutes early we went over to the Volunteer Registration tent (even though we were told to go to the color station first) and they were super disorganized.  Although they had a lot of volunteers, the check-in process was not amazing.  It's a place for some definite improvement on their part!  However, it was the first time in Charlotte and the only expectations were from the volunteer coordinators who hadn't experienced the run yet, so understandable.

We got to our PINK station - the first color station, where we were assigned and found out it was BLUE!  We were given instructions (only dip into…
