Embrace Your Face

It's Friday again, I can't believe how quickly the week goes by!

It's that time to embrace something, anything about your face, 
if that isn't the struggle this week, then maybe you will be in the same
boat as me with what you are embracing: NOT COOKING ENOUGH THIS WEEK.

I have felt like a failure because I didn't cook once this week. OK, maybe once, 
but all in all---I kept hearing from my family, "So we're doing just whatever 
for dinner tonight?" And I'd answer, "Yep, I guess...."

I had a cold/flu thing going on all week, so I'm sure that was a big part of it,
but the point is, I shouldn't be beating myself up over this!

So if you are struggling in a similar way (like beating yourself up over something or thinking you aren't doing enough), maybe it's not that you haven't cooked,
and if you haven't,  maybe you aren't beating yourself up about it like I am. . . .

I seriously have been feeling bad about not cooking at all this week too! I had these grand ideas of making chicken and dumplings for the first time but it just never happened. I suppose I better just let it go and try again next week, eh?

and I love my instax mini! The best deal I found was I've never actually seen one in a store either. The film is a little pricey (just under $1 a picture, I think) but it is really worth it. I'm sure your daughter would absolutely love it! When I brought it around our old youth group the teens were all, "What the heck is that thing?!" because they were too young to have ever owned a polaroid. It is SUCH hit every time I use it that I'm sure your daughter would have an amazing time with it :)
