Five Favourite Things from the Interwebs

Many thanks to Christy for hosting this week!


1 - This video from The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. I love his ragtime covers of songs!




2 - The following links, which were all really, really good:
Surviving and Thriving by Rachel at Testosterhome
Outside the Box: 66 Things to Give Up or Do for Lent by Kendra at Catholic All Year
Stages of Edel Gathering Acceptance and Denial by Molly at Molly Makes Do
What Love Looks Like by Calah at Barefoot and Pregnant
Why I Rarely Post Baby Bump Photos by Jessica at Housewifespice
The Catholic Subculture Is Cooler Than You Think by Christy (our host this week) at Fountains of Home
The One that Got Away by Heather at Mama Knows, Honeychild
Half Bear, Half Man, Half Dad, Two-Thirds Catholic, All Bad at Fractions by Daniel at Daniel Bearman Stewart (aka, Haley's husband)
Tour of the NICU by Beth at A Mom's Life



3 - Endevour
There's the movie and the series. Both are done by Masterpiece and both are good. If you like Sherlock then you'll enjoy Endevour. (Both can also be streamed on Netflix.)



4 - Inside Out Carrot Cake Cupcakes
After I saw this on Pinterest I went immediately to my fridge and shook my fist an the memory of using up the last of my cream cheese. Next week I am making these babies for my mom group. You can get the recipe here.



5 - Our family's favorite pizza recipe:
It makes a delicious, thick crust pizza pie.
You can find my recipe here.

  1. You had to post a cupcake picture, didn't you. Oh, boy, my willpower is virtually powerless during pregnancy. I'm putting on my apron as I type.

  7. Isn't that Jimmy song the greatest? I just love when his covers of songs are better than the actual song...which is almost every time!

  8. I love love love Jimmy. I have been watching his Late Night show everyday for a few months now and I wish I had watched it for the past 5 years! I'm thrilled he took over the tonight show. He is so sweet, funny, and does great sketches on the show. He will do amazing on the tonight show. Have you seen his yodeling with Brad Pitt? love it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtPiGYsllos

  11. Bonnie, I'm always popping over here, but this is my first time commenting... So... "hi!" This is so embarrassing, but I stopped by this evening to see if you had any new show recommendations (the kids are in bed and it's time to unwind!) because my husband and I watched "Life" on Netflix at your suggestion and really enjoyed it. Perhaps we'll check out "Endeavour" tonight. Thank you for your blog! I DO actually read it for stuff other than your insights in tv :) (ps - I've always been a fan of Fulton Sheen as an author but it had never occurred to me to pray to him as an intercessor until I heard your story. Thanks!) love, Theresa

  12. Great list!! I read Jessica's post and was truly moved by it since I am one of those who have had to walk the fine line of being very happy for the other mom but dying from a broken heart on the inside. I love popping into your part of the word :)

    1. Not that this is anything like the pain of infertility because I know it's not, but I have similar pangs when other moms I know get to quit their job to stay home with their kids. I struggle with being happy for them and insanely jealous of them at the same time. I wonder when it will be my turn.

  14. I'm officially adding Barbershop Quartet remixes to my list of all time favorite stuff.

    I'm intrigued by Endeavor.

    And *I* have cream cheese :P

  15. Those cupcakes look yummy, I think I need to plan a gathering just to make sure I don't eat them all by myself.

  19. Bonnie you're singlehandedly going to make Endeavor a "most watched" show on Prime/Netflicks :)

  20. Bonnie,
    We're totally making it to Momwrap this week- do you promise to make the cupcakes?
    Thanks for the Endeavour recommendation- new naptime show for me to watch!
