We have enjoyed this first full week of fall around our house. Pumpkins and apples and leaves, oh my! And tonight we're going to round it out with a high school football game. It's been a busy week and my brain is done so you are going to get a list of some of my favorite things from the last few weeks.
*I know that everyone is trying to keep the grocery budget under control in the midst of rising prices. Grocery Cart Challenge is a great blog I found this week and she totally puts me to shame as she feeds her family of six on about $50 a week! That is some committed frugality! Check her out for some great ideas and recipes.
*Another great blog I've been enjoying is Muses of Megret. She is a creative mom who always has a great idea for engaging her kids. She also has a great links page for preschool activities that I have utilized many times. It's like she did all the work for me!
*The year after Cale and I got married I bought a book by Noel Piper (John Piper's wife) called "Treasuring God in our Traditions." I read it then and enjoyed it, but kind of forgot about it until recently. I started re-reading it this week and am just so encouraged by her perspective why traditions are yet another way to glorify God. It is a wonderful book that you can even read for free online at Desiring God.
*I recently splurged a bit on this address stamp from Sweet Papery's shop on etsy. But can you blame me? I mean look at it! It's adorable and I loved and it and I don't plan on moving for a very long time. Their shop has lots of cute things in it.
Happy weekend! Here's to hoping you have plans for something wonderfully fall-ish!
