Seven On Saturday From The Week Of 01/04/2020
Every Saturday Best Mommy Life brings you seven things that inspired, made us laugh, smile, giggle, or possibly even belly laugh this past week. We bring you seven new things weekly and hope they will help get your weekend off to a wonderful start. Enjoy!
Welcome To A New Year And A New Decade!
It’s the first Saturday of the new year! I love firsts, and today I feel mighty accomplished and looking forward to reaching some new goals. The beginning of a new year is a great time to celebrate the achievements we have accomplished in the previous year and look forward to achieving more this new year. It’s a time for the past year to reflect and thank, celebrate small victories, take decisions to change, and embark on new beginnings and fresh beginnings.
So with these thoughts in mind, sit back and enjoy some time for yourself, open your mind, what is your heart telling you? Make a list of three new paths that you want to take this year that will bring joy to your journey. Be open to all that ventures your way; you never know where your next steps will lead you!
Quote Of The Week
“The size of your dreams must always exceed your current capacity to achieve them. If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.”
― Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, This Child Will Be Great: Memoir of a Remarkable Life by Africa’s First Woman President
It's Time For A Road Trip!
Looking to go on a road trip but don’t know exactly where to go? Sometimes it can be super fun to NOT have an agenda. Here’s a great website for finding the most scenic travel routes in each of the 50 states. It even has some suggestions for what to do along the way!
Chocolate Pound Cake? Please!
There’s nothing like a good pound cake… and the recipe we found is for a CHOCOLATE one! Nothing like starting off the new year with a little homemade, simple treat that is a classic hit:
Ingredients (what you will need):
This recipe will be available in Best Mommy Life’s Food/Cooking tabs going forward for our community to review and share their thoughts. You can follow the link below for the original recipe.
It's Time For A Treasure Hunt...
If you’re anything like me, finding things to do inside because the weather is just not allowing for much time outside can be difficult. One great craft to do that the kids always LOVE is to create a sensory treasure box and this months the theme is WINTER!
Use a small to medium size plastic storage bin and fill with rice, cotton balls, or fake snow. Fill with colorful gems, beads, bells, plastic snowflakes and other wintery toys… most of which can be found easily at your local dollar store!
Clean up trick: before your littles indulge in the fun, cover the table with a plastic table cloth… this makes cleanup a cinch!
Quote Of The Week
“You must push yourself… FACT: You are never ever going to feel like it. Ever.”
– Mel Robbins
Best Mommy Life Weekly Book
Last but not least… here’s my weekly pick for a good read: 24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week, by Tiffany Shlain
In 24/6, filmmaker and speaker Shlain familiarizes readers to a “technology shabbat”— the one day each week in which she and her family switch off all electronic devices. In addition to describing the many ways she and her family have benefited, Shlain provides helpful and supportive advice to embrace your own tech shabbat and use of restricting devices. A captivating personal story and a mesmerizing, extensive review of the complex world that we have fashioned, 24/6 is a fresh perspective on getting back to what’s important: ourselves, our families, and our society.
