1. Just clicked on your blog through Meghan’s at Little Girl in the Big World . . . and when I saw this post’s title, I was excited because I volunteer in a prison, too. 🙂 I’ve been doing it for about ten years (I taught my first class in a jail when I was 20). I teach a creative writing/poetry class every Monday night at San Quentin State Prison just north of San Francisco. I’m sure we’d have a lot to talk about! Also, since you volunteer in women’s prisons, you should check out this book that came out last October: https://store.mcsweeneys.net/products/inside-this-place-not-of-it-narratives-from-womens-prisons

    Glad to have found you!

  2. That is awesome that you won $150 to Jewelmint. I felt the same way about you with joining. I ended up joining when I get an email for 70% off a piece and ebates was doing $15 back on your first piece. So I ended up essentially getting paid for my first piece.

    That’s pretty cool that you got to see the talent night at the prison. I really admire that you do the volunteering there.

  3. So, I’m pretty stoked for your link up. Yay! Also, that’s awesome that you volunteer – it takes a certain type of person to be able to give like that, and it speaks to what’s in your heart!

    1. thanks, yi-chia!! you are always so encouraging! you are the bomb, girl. for reals!! hahaha get yo’ own bow bangle 🙂 jk. but seriously. i love mine too much. LOL 🙂

  4. Molly, LOVE the arm parties! That bow bangle is PREESH! I think it’s pretty darn cool that you volunteer at a prison. I think it sounds exciting. And what a fun link up! Happy Weekend!

  5. way to serve others and the lord. it sounds like a great opportunity to love on people and use your talents!

    it looks like your arm parties were a hit 🙂

  6. What a great story about the women in prison. That’s such a great place to volunteer your time. I work on a college campus and have witnessed that Idol brings out the camaraderie for sure!
    Can’t wait for the Monday linkup, so fun!

  7. I love arm parties! I’m trying to make mine more creative lately. I am also jumping on the #SheReadsTruth bandwagon – I tried to get into it last time but didn’t stick with it so I’m going to try to keep up this time!

    Happy Friday!

  8. Your prison trip actually sounds wonderful and empowering!! Totally opposite of what I expected ha! I’ll be back for YOLO MOnday 🙂

  9. I’m DROOLING over your meal and it’s not even 8 AM yet…way to be innovative and whip something up!! My plan is to try to use what I can from our pantry before I shop again:) Also, your story about visiting the women’s prison reminded me I have been meaning to volunteer! I really want to do something to give back to my community but I haven’t been able to find something yet. I sometimes wish there were more programs or opportunities outside of churches for peeps like me. Maybe I’ll start one!!! Lol.

    Okay so this is the most rambly (rambling??) comment ever.

    1. LOL i love it!!! check out supercook.com – you can put in what you have already in your possession and it will give you a recipe!! it’s AWESOME. and there are a TON of volunteer opportunities outside of the church – i’d start with a food kitchen or women’s shelter – i also love old people so i volunteered at a nursing home in newport news when i was in college 🙂 🙂
