Friday Favorites

Hey there Friday! You know what that means… Time to link up with ErikaAndrea, and Narci to share all my favorites from the week! 


Did everybody take advantage of 7/11 Free Slurpee Day?! This fam sure did and the little man got to experience a Slurpee for the first time. It should be noted that I had never had one of these either until after Nick and I had been married and we went on 7/11 to get a free one. So apparently the family tradition continues that we only get slurpees if they are giving them to us for free. Either way, Caleb was a fan.. but mostly of the straw. 


One of my very best friends Lindsee came to visit and that was definitely a huge favorite! Not only that but she’s now selling jewelry so we got to throw ourselves a little girls night and look at all of the sparkly things. If you want to look at the sparkly things too, I’m pretty sure my trunk show doesn’t close until August 1st. (Here’s the link if you are interested.) We stayed up until 2 am and my goodness, I still don’t think I’ve recovered. We certainly aren’t in college anymore, folks. 

Caleb convinced her to read him some books early that next morning so she quickly became a favorite of his when she obliged. It makes my heart so happy to see two of my very favorite people become besties. 😉

It was a must that we take a bazillion pictures before she left but unfortunately we waited until the moment she was walking out the door.  The only other person there to actually take our picture was my 1 year old that was only in the mood to physically cling to my body. So here’s what we got.. I’m pretty confident Caleb was confused by our ridiculousness. 

This next one is my attempt to make fun of his judgey face. 

So yup. It’s always a grand time with Linds. If she would move here already, that’d be great. 


So apparently it was the week of free things galore and the Jones fam was all in. You better believe we were at the closest Chick-Fil-A dressed like cows to get our free chicken. And yes, Nick and I participated even long before we had a child. #giveusallthefreethings

And the good thing about being the picture taker is not having photo documentation of me as a cow. 😉


So last week I shared that my favorite fella was preaching on Sunday and that he sure did. Now I know that I’m a bit biased, but I mean it when I say the Lord spoke through him in a mighty way. It gives me great joy to see Nick use the giftings that God has given him for His glory. Everyone has been so incredibly sweet and encouraging to him about his message and I absolutely love to see him be affirmed by other people of what I already know. I’m quite the proud wife. (And side note: My hat and t-shirt wearing hubby wore a coat and tie and sure did look mighty fine rockin’ it.) 



Coffee will always be my favorite. Especially when my body can’t seem to get caught up from just one night’s lack of sleep. (Apparently this is what it’s like to be IN your thirties.)


Fresh flowers from Whole Foods for the win!!! 

And I will just leave you right there on that random note because flowers are just happy. 🙂 Hope everyone has such a fabulous weekend!! Hug your people tight and smile to strangers. You could even say hello if you are feeling a little bold! 😉

I love Jesus. My husband and my sons are the best ever. I'm a Texas girl living in a Colorado world. Coffee makes everything better.
