Friday Favorites {No. 1}

 I feel as though I am really coming out of the fog. We were at the gym 4 out of 5 days. I haven't lost a pound or an inch, but hey we. did. it! I am blaming it on Billie's Italian Cream Cake. It's been a "go to" of mine for years. I had to keeping tasting it again and again just to make sure it had enough frosting. ;) 

Here are some of my favorite links on the web this week:

She does all of the vocals and then mixes them. Check out their "Say something"video as well. 

This one left me balling like a baby. It made me really think about how short life is. It made me question myself  "am I really reaching out to the people around me?" {was that too much of a spoiler?} You can read about the post here

  1. What a wonderful list of links! I'm brewing a cup of tea, and I'm going to enjoy looking through them! Thank you so much for including my friend's guest post in your favorites this week - I loved learning how to encourage a young pastor's wife! :) Have a great weekend!

  2. PS - I'm pretty sure that I need that top, too! Gorgeous!

    1. I hope you liked them. Your guest post was perfect. I am always wondering how I can encourage our pastor's wives. Now I know better ways. The shirt!! I am trying to figure a way I can justify buying it :)

  3. Awww, I am honored to be on your Friday Favorites list...thank you friend :) I got to snuggle with my sweet, almost 6 month old grandbaby on Friday (we had a sleepover) so I would have to say she is one of my Friday Favorites <3

    1. Grandbaby?! You are a gorgeous grandmother.

    2. Just seeing this Misty...thanks so much! I'm 46, my daughter is 25 and my son is 19. They've both given me grandbabies. My son's daughter is a little over a year. She was a BIG surprise. He was preparing to leave for a private college to play football. I was heartbroken. It wasn't certain that he was the father (they weren't dating, I had no idea) and she had been with someone else. He went to college, was the quarterback and they won the championship...quite a dream! He decided to come back after the baby was born. We adore her!!! So incredibly thankful for God's grace in that entire situation!
      Whew...sorry, guess you didn't need all of that info :)
      Anyway I have two beautiful granddaughters!
