This Week's Featured Blogger:

I'm happy to announce, my Featured Blogger for this week is Love Food, Will Share. Cooking is not one of my strong suits, so I was drawn to this post about an easy slow-cooker bbq beef recipe. The step-by-step directions and pictures will help the not-so much cooks ace this recipe. I'm excited to try making the bbq beef and surprising my meat and potatoes husband with a dinner worth eating, maybe even savoring.

Feel free to grab the Featured Blogger button for your blog and share your good news! Be sure to visit Tanya to see which blogger she featured and whose post earned the most views this week.

My Weekly Recap:

I had a busy and tiring week. My husband was in Vancouver for work and my boys and I missed him terribly. I am thankful he doesn't travel often, but when he does it's tough. I think I heard "Daddy is better" and "I love Daddy more" about 100 times. I don't want to knock my sons' love for their Daddy, but it can get annoying. Anyway, I found creative activities to keep my Daddy boys busy and accompanied, and by the end of the week I got a big hug and an affirmation that "I love you and Daddy the same."

Fun Activities

  • Fed the ducks at Bond Park in Cary
  • Went to the Dollar Tree. Each boy got to pick 2 items. A got bubbles and mini pool set and L got a frog balloon and police helmet.
  • Had dinner at Firehouse Subs on Wednesday (Did you know that 2 kids can eat free with a paying adult  plus the boys enjoyed getting fire hats).

My Accomplishments

  • Went to the gym 4-days this week. Found new workouts on Instagram @the_perfectworkout that left me sore!
  • Spoke with 3 potential fitness and women's health providers about partnering with FitTriangleMom.
  • Prepped clothing and decor to consign for the Designer Consignors consignment sale. 
  • Volunteered with my son's preschool's walk-a-thon
  • Found added inspiration for my book


  • So thankful my husband came home safely from his trip.
  • Very Thankful for warm, sunny days (I'm a flip-flop girl).
  • Thankful for God's love and the 3 cute guys He put in my life.

Oh goodness, I hear 100 times a day the boys love their daddy more too! Daddy is definitely the fun one in our house whereas I am the one trying to get them to bathe, eat and clean up! :)

I love your recap and how exciting to get 3 partnership opportunities and work on your book! Thanks for cohosting #SmallVictoriesSunday this week, it's going to be great!

Glad you can relate, Tonya. My son asked me why I care so much about cleaning. I told him if I didn't then who would? He didn't have an answer. Feel honored to co-host and meet other inspirational bloggers!
