Friday Faves

It’s finally Friday!  We have been counting down to this day for a long time!  We are headed to the beach as you are reading this post and couldn’t be more excited!

Today I am linking up with Narci, Erika, and Andrea to share with you my Friday Favorites.


I picked this letter board up at Wal-Mart this week for only $9.97!  The girls have been wanting one for a while and I knew this was too good of a deal to pass up!  We have loved leaving a new message on it every day.

This week on FaceBook someone shared the story of Lisa Harper and how she adopted her daughter, Missy, from Haiti.  I watched it with tears streaming down my face.  It was such a wonderful story of God’s redeeming love!  Watch the video clip here.

The girls and I like to watch music videos on YouTube and project them onto our TV.  Elizabeth is a Kelsea Ballerini fan and wanted me to watch her new song, Legends,  the other day.  I sat down and watched the video and listened to the song and cried!  Elizabeth didn’t understand why I was crying, but she’s also not a mom or wife yet.  It is a sad song, but beautifully written.  You must watch the video here to help it explain the song more.

This quote is so true!  I know an autism mom shared it, but it relates to every one of us.  I always tell my girls to be kinder than necessary because you never know what someone else is going through.  Don’t judge or criticize because you have no idea what it’s like to be them, just like they don’t know what it’s like to be you.

I use Google Photos to store all of my videos and pictures and the app will make a lot of cute movies and/or share old pictures with you similar to TimeHop.  Yesterday when I went to the app to back my pictures up, this picture of Emily Grace was waiting on me.  Then and Now.  On the left she had just turned 2 and on the right she is 9.  She went fishing with her daddy this week and had a great time!  Be still my heart!

This is where we are headed!  Isn’t God’s creation beautiful?!?! I took this picture last summer while we were there.

I won’t be blogging for the next 10 days while I am on vacation with my family.  I’ll definitely have lots of pictures to share with you once we get back!

Have a great weekend.
