So I've managed to make dinner like four times this week, which I'll take as a good sign that I'm coming out of my funk. Also, leftovers are my life.
I've also completely abandoned pants as of this week. Why? Because they are leg prison. And because it is May in Texas. And because I can.
So without further ado, a little weekend reading:
How to Apply Your Skincare Products in the Right Order: I use less than half of these things, but it turns out the few products I do use, I was mostly getting out of order. Also, I find myself at the age where skincare is taking a front seat on all beauty routines. Hmmmmmmm.
Toothpaste, you get. What My Ethics Professor Taught Me About Wisdom and Everything Else: “You are not here to get smart,” he bellows. “Toothpaste, you get. A parking ticket, you get. Herpes, you get,” the last of which elicits a handful of snickers, maroon cheeks from the rest. He continues." This just preaches.
A Letter to My Brothers: Yes. Yes. A thousand times yes! "I do so for sake of my gender, for the sake of our sisters in Christ and for the sake of other female leaders who will be faced with similar challenges. I do so for the sake of my brothers because Christlikeness is at stake and many of you are in positions to foster Christlikeness in your sons and in the men under your influence." Also this made me super grateful for my husband.
An Apology to Beth Moore: Yup, a continuation of the above. Y'all, this is how church should be done. "... I said and did nothing. I wasn’t any different from Saul standing by holding clothes while Stephen was stoned."
These Pants. Even though I previously mentioned that I have foregone pants for the season, these keep calling to me. What do you think?
Team Chaffin: Three years ago we shared a guest house with a couple adopting their first son in Uganda. We bonded over adoption and Texas and all the things. Those friends have been back in Uganda for a year now to complete their second adoption of two more little boys!!!!! So I was so excited when I realized I could help them fundraise through Noonday! Anytime you shop that link between now and Wednesday, it helps them bring their forever family home!
