Well, we've come to the end of another week, and it has been quite a full week in my household, between salad dressing spilling all over the place and a little one that is learning to roll over already. Time is not slowing down around here.
With the end of another week comes another Friday Five - a curated collection of five things that I enjoyed reading, watching, hearing, or using this week. You'll find them below, but I'd love to hear what your Friday Fives are this week.
I'm finally getting back into regular exercise after five months postpartum, and I'll always choose dance over any other type of exercise, so I started dancing to Live Love Party's dance videos on Youtube again. If you like dancing and you want to dance to routines in the convenience of your own home, they have a number of great videos. My personal favorite is Lean On.
My mom cleaned with this duster growing up, and I even received a kit as a wedding present. However, it has been sitting unused under our kitchen sick for years, and I completely forgot that we owned one. That was until I was reorganizing the space under our sink this week, and I rediscovered it. Knowing that our house needed a good dusting, I took it for a spin. Here's the funny thing: I loved it! And I joyfully dusted my entire house in record time. That never happens! I don't think I will ever go back to my rag and spray ever again.
We can live on much less than we realize, and Rose Lounsbury explored this idea when it came to her towels, and it led to exploring how she could live with less in other areas of her life. I've been thinking about minimizing A LOT lately, especially with having a baby this past year that now has a lot of stuff. Instead of towels I keep asking myself, how much baby stuff do we actually need?
Not a very happy read, but definitely an interesting one. It's stories like these that just remind me of how broken the world can be at times, but also how amazing God is that he made a world where identical quintuplets are even born.
I resisted the sparkling water trend for quite a while. Mainly I didn't really like sparkling water. After trying it multiple times while living in Poland, I just couldn't get into it. BUT THEN I started buying the Strawberry Lemonade Starbucks Refreshers and suddenly carbonated water wasn't that bad. AND THEN a friend bought me sparkling water for Christmas, and I really liked it. So instead of buying the mini Pepsi cans with real sugar at the store this week, I bought flavored sparkling water instead. Change is possible, friends.
Hey There! I'm Madi,
Welcome to a space for those growing by grace and seeking God's kingdom in the ordinary and everyday.
