Inspirational Quotes to Celebrate National Women's History Month

March 8th is recognized International Women's Day.

The 2018 Theme for National Women’s History Month is “Nevertheless, She Persisted: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.”

"She Persisted".  Sound familiar? 

This year the National Women's History Project has selected a distinguished group of women to be honored.  Women who persisted.  Check out inspirational quotes from some of the honorees.

Geraldine Ferraro (1935-2011) Politician/First Woman Major Party VP Candidate and Human Rights Activist
"My desk drawer is filled with all kinds of prayers"
Elizabeth Peratrovich (Kaaxal-gat) (1911-1958) Political Activist for Alaska Natives, Spearheaded First Anti-Discrimination Law, USA
“I would not have expected that I, who am barely out of savagery, would have to remind gentlemen with 5,000 years of recorded civilization behind them, of our Bill of Rights.”

"extraordinary accomplishments have largely been invisible"

Pauli Murray (1910-1985) Women’s Rights/Civil Rights Activist, Attorney, Author, and Episcopal Priest
"Hope is a song in a weary throat."
Cristina Jimenez Immigrant (DREAMERs) Activist*

These honorees are among those who will be honored at the annual National Womens History Project luncheon later this month in Washington, D.C. 

These women are using their voices to change the world and changing lives. 

You may notice some McDonald's have flipped their iconic M upside down to celebrate International Womens Day and other companies are launching products to commemorate the day.

We are celebrating with a luncheon with some of our local community leaders.

These are all such powerful quotes! I think it's fabulous that there's an International Women's Day. Women are fabulous.
I'm not doing anything to celebrate Womens Day or Womens Hisory Month. I do like the quote Nevertheless she persisted, but I apply it to anyone dealing with any specific thing she's battling.
Rachel said…
Nope, not celebrating women's history month or day or anything. While it was maybe started with good intentions to honor those who fought for our right to vote, etc, it is anything but honorable anymore.

Oh! This is one of my favorites!! "We won’t stop fighting. This is our home. They tried to bury us, they didn’t know we were seeds. Won’t stop until our communities can live w/our fear."

There so many women out there to take inspiration from. I like the "you have here. I think one of my favorite ones which I'm not sure who said it but gives me confidence every day is "if you must doubt, doubt your doubts and not your beliefs".
There are a lot of amazing women in the world. I love that Barbie is releasing a new line of dolls showing off some of the real life women heroes we should all look up to.
Alison Rost said…
I love how women come together to celebrate this day. The quotes are very empowering. Perfect for International Women's day.

What an incredible time to be raising women. These books can definitely help shine light on the strong women of our past to motivate our daughters.

It's so important to celebrate and support women. I just had a daughter, so it's even more important than ever that I raise a strong woman. Great quotes!
Sara Welch said…
I don't really celebrate this as a true day but I absolutely love these quotes. I love that other women feel empowered by this day.

I’m not doing anything in particular to celebrate. I need to come up with some great ideas for a project I’ve had in mind. I’m still working my dreams like always.

OH! The Places You'll Go! Giveaway Hop + 7 Out of the Box Uses for Erasers

Another Summer has come and gone and it's time to head Back to School!  

If you're anything like me you took advantage of all those Back to School deals and stocked up on all those back to school deals and now have a surplus of school supplies which will probably end up in a junk drawer or put away someplace where you will never find it when you need it.

Take for instance those pink erasers.  I buy a pack every year and every year without fail my family gives me that look when they see that pack of lone erasers in the back to school shopping cart.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to use erasers around the house

Erase away scuffs on your kitchen floor with an eraser.  

Easily remove your kid's pop-up crayon masterpiece from the walls with an eraser. 

Remove stains from suede boots by gently brushing the eraser across the stain until it's gone.

Maple and Brown Sugar Air Fryer Bacon

I've been raving about my Instant Pot but now I have a new favorite... the Air Fryer.  
O M G This thing is amazing!  I don't know why I was so late to the Air Fryer craze but I am so glad I am finally onboard.  

I've been talking about getting one and then after my aunt posted pics of her new air fryer, that was it off to Best Buy I went.  

I wasn't sure how big of a unit I would need but I figured the 2.5 liter would suffice.  I chose the Chefman Express.  It was priced on the shelves for $85 but online for $75.99 and my local store matched the price AND I had my Swagbucks Best Buy QR code so I got 500 SBs + 2 SBs for every dollar spent so that's another 170 SBs.  So, after discounts, my air fryer ended up costing me less than the sale price.  Woohoo!

There were some fancy ones on the shelves with digital display but after checking the reviews I figured since I don't fry much this model would suffice.
When I think of fried foods, I think of fried chicken and bacon.…
