This Week’s Featured Blogger:
small victories sunday linky featured blogger 200x200 I’m happy to announce, my Featured Blogger for this week is Creative K Kids- Thoughtful Thursdays. Creative K Kids was the second most viewed post from last week’s linky. I particularly liked her “A Convicting Thought from Another Blog” section. She measures our First world problems against true hate and fear that is faced in other countries. Makes you thankful for what you have and vigilant to pray for those who are in danger.

My Weekly Recap 

So many firsts happened this week. It began with co-hosting my first blog linky, Small Victories Sunday. I chose the best one to begin my blog linky career. All the posts I read were well-written, informative, inspiring and encouraging. There is so much talent shared within this linky. If you’re new to this linky, please take the time to read other posts and share them with others.

Then we celebrated the first day of spring. A crazy ice and wintry mix try to crash our party, but the buds kept on blooming, and the sun revealed itself again. After school, I treated the boys to CiCi’s pizza for lunch and Rita’s Ice for dessert. We enjoyed the free ice at Rita’s. The Starburst cherry flavor was our favorite.

We concluded our week with the first soccer practice of the season. My 5-year-old son was so excited to get back outside on the field. It had been a whole year since he had played outside. He needed new cleats, shin guards and shorts. I have fun going to practices and games too. Soccer was my sport growing up, and I love watching him enjoy it as well.

My Victories

  • Went to the gym 2x this week (had some set-backs icy weather & car trouble)
  • Tried a few new exercises that I found at The Perfect Workout
  • Finally had my hair done-highlights (my current stylist has been away with a sick parent). Tried someone new and love my new do. (if you’re local, I can message you her info). If you’re a blonde, you know how important this is.
  • Blogged about Fitness on a Budget
Next Week’s Goals
  • My 13th wedding anniversary is on Monday. I am planning on surprising my husband with the Scandalous Strawberry cake that was posted on last week’s linky. Strawberry cakes are my husband’s favorite.

    Thanks so much for featuring that post! I thought the piece I quoted was so well written . . . all praise should go to her! I had heard about what those Christians were facing, but had not thought that deeply about it until I stumbled across her post. I am enjoying writing those posts, even though they don&#39;t bring a lot of traffic. They make me think during the week and write about

    1. Your welcome, Tammy. I encourage you to keep posting you&#39;re faith based posts. Your post was actually the 2nd most visited link within the linky. We had over 60 posts last week. I&#39;m trying to incorporate more faith based posts into my blog. Fitness is my theme, but my faith is my core.
