So I love fall. And I strive to be Wonder Woman.
Which is why this combined post to tell you about two fabulous books that crossed my path recently is really just plain awesome because c’mon . . . Who DOESN’T want to be Wonder Woman?
And while we’re on the subject, did you have Wonder Woman Underoos? Because I did and I was so cool. I still am, of course, you know, in my really hip minivan with nasty stuff in the carpet and a horrid stench. Also, just so you know, I get called ma’am a lot.
Excuse the digression.
My friend, Denise, writes this fabulous blog about all things decorative and crafty. Obviously, this is not what drew us together as friends but I love her nonetheless and she doesn’t judge my lack of craftiness. In fact, she is completely non-threatening in a doesn’t-make-you-feel-bad-that-you-can’t-sew kind of way. Which, of course, is good for me because I can’t.
Excuse the digression again.
Together with Lori Ramsey, these two ladies have released the first of a five-part series that’s PERFECT for those of us that don’t have a ton of time to pour through House Beautiful and want ideas and recipes we can do RIGHT NOW. Not when I knock down walls and move to a new house but TODAY.
Here’s what they released last week:
And I have to say, we at the Snapp house are loving it. We made crockpot applesauce today and Denise is right – it was SUPER easy and SUPER yummy and it made my house smell like I’m a Wonder Woman matriarch…Which we all know is not entirely accurate so obviously, this is a powerful book, friends.

Speaking of WonderWoman . . .
I love Jenny Sulpizio. As a fellow contributor of the M.O.B. Society, I’ve gotten to know Jenny through her honest and real writing style–which you know I love.
Her new book, Confessions of a Wonder Woman Wannabe: On a Mission to Save Sanity, One Mom at a Time, is a must-read for all mamas at any stage of mothering, but as I read through Jenny’s humorous words, it struck me: this book is PERFECT for the new mother or mama who just quit her job and decided to stay home with her children full-time. I wish I could have gotten my paws on it about eight years ago.
And still . . . as a more experienced mother (i.e. OLD), I found myself nodding my head in agreement and thankful to read her words on PMS and caffeine – just to name a few.
I also have to say that I love the continual references back to Jesus because sometimes as busy moms, we forget He’s got us. There are oodles of books about being a mother out there but Wonder Woman Wannabe stands-out because it’s written in a girlfriend-to-girlfriend tone AND there’s doses of Jesus (which means hope and grace) peppered throughout.
Not to mention, this cover is awesome, isn’t it?
So . . . tell me . . . What do you love about fall? Or if you don’t want to talk about autumn, what makes you feel like you AREN’T a Wonder Woman these days?
