F R I D A Y F A V O R I T E S !
We are so happy that it’s Friday again at our house! We have some fun plans for the weekend, so that’s exciting! This morning, I have a periodontist appointment to talk about my receding gums, and I am nervous. Hopefully I’ll have good news to report on Monday!
On to the favorites. . .
Yesterday, I wrote a post about some thoughts I had on generosity. In the comments, some of you left me some wonderful ideas on how to be generous while toting around little ones. Thank you! I’m definitely planning on implementing a few of them!
I loved this very doable one from Stefanie:
”One of my favorite inexpensive things to do is drop off treats to people. When my kids or I have a doctor/dentist appointment, I pick up a box of frosted or chocolate chip cookies at the grocery store bakery, and give it to the staff when I sign in. I do the same thing when I have to visit my son and daughter's school, and I try to take cookies to our local library once a month. It really only costs me a few dollars, and it makes them so happy!”
In case you missed it, on Wednesday, I shared a thought about fashion blogging along with my favorite outfit of the week. For only $1.00, the necklace perfectly completed the outfit! Click here to read.
I had a lot of fun reading the feedback on Monday’s nail polish post! Thanks to your recommendations, I now have a few Essie shades (Mink Muff, Ballet Slippers, Teeny Bikini) that I will be saving my pennies for!
Today is the last day to enter the giveaway to win, “Whatever Wanda!”—a cute new children’s book by Christy Ziglar. It’s the third book in the “Shine Bright Kids” series, and we love the lessons they teach!
Last fall, I was asked to review Kara Tippetts’s book, “The Hardest Peace”, and I was drawn into her story. Her battle with breast cancer was emotional for me to read and close to my heart. Kara and I became friends on Instagram, and I loved seeing the beautiful photos of her while she savored the time she had left with her family. I was so saddened to hear that Kara passed away last weekend (at 38 years-old), leaving behind her husband and four children. She is fully healed now, with Jesus in Heaven, but she is so missed here. I loved Ann Voskamp’s blog post from the other day, “How to Recover the Lost Art of Dying Well: What Kara Tippetts Taught Us”. Definitely worth a read.
A year ago, I did a post about making your own Resurrection Eggs. As we’re approaching Easter weekend, I thought I’d share them again in case you want to make these with your kids or grandkids! :)
