Summer is in full swing here, complete with oppressive heat and humidity!

We spent last weekend at my dad’s house, swimming in his pool, attempting a backyard camp out and just soaking up the days of summer. Then we dropped the big girls off for a week at my mom’s for VBS at her church and all the fun she could possibly pack into a week (bike riding, catching fireflies, a real tea party, lunch dates and more!), so it’s been a relaxing week at home for the rest of us, and I’m looking forward to more of that next week as well.

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think. You’ll find new posts all week long!

Food {Eat Well, Spend Less}

This month’s Eat Well, Spend Less topic is summer eats! I didn’t participate this time since we’re in the middle of the Break the Sugar Habit Challenge, but be sure to read through the rest of the posts in the series:

Family {Through Good Times & Bad}

Money {Frugal Living at Its Finest}

Have a great weekend!
