cake failI was trying to make cake for our dinner club on Thursday and it came out an epic fail (I made it before, see here). It was for a birthday celebrant and I still wanted to have something, so as soon as I got home from swim classes and before everyone came over, I started making another. It was then that I realized that I forgot the baking soda and 1/2 cup of oil! HA! It wasn’t even edible! It was way too dense and tasted nasty! Well, the new batch came out great, dangerously so that I keep eating it now, and everyone at dinner club loved it.

This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

Glow has suddenly become a little more feisty! It’s that #2 I tell you!

I’m so thankful for our dinner club crew. We get together weekly and I always feel so blessed after a night of laughter and sharing life.

I like the show Revolution and am glad the new season started, and I tried out Blacklist and I kind of like that show too! We don’t have a television, so I’m thankful for Hulu.

I’m running the Zombie Run again today and I’m nervous!!! It’s so fun, but so scary!!! See last year’s here.

This looks like fun to make with my kiddos.

Love this article on multi-racial families. I say our kids our “Whitamexipino,” so I think it will be interesting what they identify with as they get older.

My baby sister is amazing. She’s one of a kind and you just know God is going to use her for great things. She shared in this post what her next step is going to be, and I am super sad because she will gone for 11 months, but excited for how God is going to grow and stretch her for the journey ahead.

I was able to get most of the house under control and I’m thankful. All the laundry is done and put away, floors cleaned, and carpet vacuumed, but I still need to clean bathrooms. We’re constantly purging and it feels so good to do that. I have a weakness for chairs and shoes, but other than that I’m not much a collector of trinkets and what nots. While I do have some collections, I think I do a pretty decent job at keeping it at bay. Too many little things kind of make me itchy, or if I look at a part of our house and can’t mentally pack what’s in that spot quickly, that makes me itchy too. Do you tend to be a collector or more of a purger? What are some of your tips to prevent hoarding tendencies?

    Crazy that ur sister is going on the world race! My husband and I met on a mission trip to India with adventures in missions (before the world race was in existence) and then lived, and led teams in Swaziland and India, with AIM for two years. We hosted world race teams and became close to so many participants. Ur sister will have an amazing experience and fall more in love with Jesus and His heart for the world. So exciting for her. Crazy how small this world is, as I’ve been reading ur blog for a while, and it all comes around full circle 🙂

    I wonder if you might enjoy the family portraits on this website, as much as I did (one of my brother’s kids are biracial and he and his wife enjoyed the site, too.):

    I love the label you created for your kids “whitamexipino”. 🙂 You’re creative in everything!

    I’m definitely a purger. My parents + my husbands parents both have junk filled garages and now we’re crazy about getting rid of stuff. I use to hoard a little a few years ago when I was collecting vintage, but now, though I still thrift and yard sale, I hardly ever come home with anything.
