Five Things: Jewish Edition

So I'm a big fan of Five on Friday, but let's be honest...day-of-the-week specific blogging activities are a challenge for me! So here are Five Things (on a Thursday), and today I'm going to keep it Jewish around here.

I've been doing a lot of challah baking lately. I made tons and tons over the holiday and now I seem to be out again....hmmm. So another challah baking marathon is in my future!

If anyone is interested in giving challah baking a try, let me know! I have a good recipe to send over:)

One of my longtime dreams has been to build up an Orthodox women's blogging network, and now it's finally coming to fruition! You can check out our intro post HERE and there will be a new post today over HERE!

I came across a wonderful website dedicated to the late Rebbetzin Batsheva Kanievsky, that aims to be a source for connecting Jewish women--check out the website HERE for more information!

I got new hair!  Some of you who are unfamiliar with Orthodox Judaism may not realize this, but in our community we cover our hair after we get married, with scarves, hats, wigs, etc. I personally am a fan of wigs and have been saving up for a new one for a while now! I visited a friend of mine who had a wig consignment shop and came away with this one:)

So far, I love it--nothing like a new haircut (or in this case, a wig--the more expensive version!)

Ellie was the "Shabbos Ima" in nursery school this week--which led to some of the most hilariously cute photos I've ever seen! Think "Fiddler on the Roof" meets toddlerhood:)

Check it out:

I almost spit my drink out laughing looking at this:)

What funny photos from YOUR childhood do you remember?


  1. Best wishes with your blogging network and the photos of your daughter are too cute!

  2. I would love your challah recipe. I am just learning to make bread. If you get a chance...,my e-mail is sky.gypsy.gilli@gmail.com or you could just leave it in a response to this comment...however you want. Thanks :)

  3. Your new hair is so cute! You look great! I'd love your challah recipe..I've been making it almost every week and love to try new recipes :)

  4. cheap asics running shoes Good cheap asics running shoes comfortable. Aguang mind suddenly cropped up this sentence. How it was. What are you doing. Hikari could not help but ask. He has been very clear asics shoes sale uk that they are not cheap rivals, so the cheap asics running shoes tone has been weak down. Well, I have to wrap your cold, you can change back to normal now, cheap asics running shoes but asics running shoes sale this is only temporary .
