Friday Favorites

I just want to take a few minutes to talk about all of the things that are my favorites this week. Because it’s SNOWING outside and we are only two days away from May so I am definitely NOT loving that.. so I would much rather focus on the things that I am loving.

So I’m linking up with ErikaAndrea, and Narci for…

FIRST THINGS FIRST.. I need to talk about Parenthood.

 Have you watched this show???  If not, stop what you are doing right now and go watch it. I’m serious. You don’t have time to waste. It is seriously one of the BEST SHOWS EVER. I have shared before that
I’ve been watching it but it has taken me years because my emotional well-being just cannot take lots of it at once.  I cry in EVERY. SINGLE. EPISODE. Nick loves to make fun of this because he just does NOT understand the bond I have with the Bravermans apparently. Well I watched the final episode on Wednesday night after the longest day ever because I just could not go another day without knowing what happened to my favorite family. AND I SOBBED. Like big time ugly cried all over the place. So then I went to Facebook immediately afterwards to share my pain (because what else do you do?).. and thankfully there were lots of people that are in my boat sobbing with me. I appreciated all 13 comments of people that just plain understood the mourning that was occurring in my heart. 

I do have to hand it to the writers who did a phenomenal job of wrapping up the show and I will most definitely be watching that last five minutes of the finale over and over again to continue to have closure.  #bravermansforever

SECOND THING… I am obsessed with coconut oil.

So I shared the other week that I bought some to give it a shot because it seemed that people kept recommending it. Well I am here to say that I am a FAN. The main purpose I use it is for makeup remover and that alone convinced me.  It takes off WAY more than my makeup remover ever did. I also use it as a moisturizer and I love to put it on my feet before I put my fuzzy socks on. (The things you do when you live in dry Colorado.) The other day I also used it as a hair mask and my hair felt SO MUCH softer. So don’t mind me as I’m walking around smelling like a tropical island.

NEXT UP IS… My MOPS group leaders gave us this precious book.

It’s a Bible journal but it makes it so easy to write out the things that you are reading and learning that day.

Look how simple that is?? I have absolutely loved using it. I just started the Hosea plan on SheReadsTruth this week and this has been such a fun tool to use to journal my thoughts and prayers to go along with it. 

AND OF COURSE… I can’t share favorites without sharing one about the little man.  (Which is why most of you read this blog anyways.)

Lately he has been ALL about the cleaning. I’ve told y’all that he’s obsessed with the broom and making me sweep the kitchen. Well the other day he grabbed a paper towel and just started “dusting” his chair and the wall behind it. He loves to walk around with me and “help” me when I dust so I guess he decided he needed to do some dusting of his own. I AM ALL FOR THIS. I know that it won’t last forever especially when he gets to the age that it would actually be helpful, but a girl can dream, right??

So that is all it for this week’s favorites! Please feel free to share any of yours too, ESPECIALLY any books or tv shows (since I completed both my book and my show this week and now I don’t know what to do with myself besides eat animal crackers.) 

Happy Friday Everyone!!!

  1. TV show – Have you ever watched “Once Upon A Time”? It gets a bit dark here and there, but I love the spin on old fairytales. And books – “Cinder”, which is a futuristic version of Cinderella (the second book in the series is on my nightstand waiting to be read). Clearly I am on a fairytale re-telling kick lately. šŸ˜‰
