Five Things New

Five Awesome Links

Before the Law.  A boy was accused of taking a backpack.  The courts took the next three years of his life.   Jennifer Gonnerman for the New York Times.  Must Read.

5 Reasons We Need to Stop Thinking of Skinny-Shaming as ‘Reverse Discrimination.’  A great discussion of why reverse discrimination is not the same as discrimination.

When I Go Out, I Want to Go Out Like Elijah, by D.L. Mayfield.  I absolutely loved this.  It made me feel sentimental (which is kind of rare, just being honest).

On Not Firepitting Our Marriage, by Kristen Howerton.  I needed to read this.  And I absolutely agree with the sentiment.  (And I share the love of the fire pit.)

I’ve also been loving the WE ARE THE OTHER synchroblog at SheLovesMagazine.  This post by my friend Esther is my favorite so far.


Five Awesome Links for your Kitchen

Super Simple Brownie Tart with Salted Caramel from The Sugar Hit.  My takeaway from this recipe?  I should try baking a brownie mix in my tart pan.

On-the-Go Breakfast: an Entire Week of Oatmeal in your Freezer!  A post by Edible Perspective blogger Ashley over on

Learn how to make your own Healthy Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte.  This recipe is AWESOME and created by Brittany Mullins of Eating Bird Food.  (I think I’ll add a milk frother to my Christmas List!)

Breakfast Cereal Popcorn Balls from ABM.  This maybe seems like a lame recipe to you guys, but to me?  THIS IS AWESOME.  I love rice krispy treats and I LOVE breakfast cereal and I LOVE popcorn.  This practically mixes these all together.

Breakfast Cookies sound like a great idea — Check out these Flourless Thumbprint Breakfast Cookies from Oh She Glows.

      I think there are caramel people and chocolate people. I’ve always been a chocolate person, but I think I need to give caramel a chance. (Especially when it is combined with chocolate.)
