Hello, hello! Happy Friday! I hope you had a wonderful week. I have had a good week and am ready for the weekend. Let's talk about our favorites from the week, shall we? Please share yours in the comment section, I would love to hear!

Friday Favorites 01.jpg

Weekly I share my favorites from the week and link it up to Erika, Andrea and Narci's blogs for their Friday favorites link up.


Last Saturday I made this apple pie for my family and it was so good (recipe here!)! I haven't made a pie in a while and it was really fun to make something beautiful. It definitely got me in the fall mood!

What is your favorite pie? 

Best way to have pie: a la mode style. Oh, and with coffee of course!

On Monday mornings, I have appointments and this week Sophia tagged along. When my mom was in Aldi we had fun laughing, being weird, and making boomerangs on Instagram.

One thing I want to remember is that God loves to see us laugh and have fun. He is our Father and delights in us. I want a childlike faith that enables me to be silly and enjoy life. I want to remember that God didn't create me to carry the loads that I burden myself with. He wants to enjoy life with me. Isn't He so good?!

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
— Matthew 11:28-30

This week Sophia got this lipstick and has let me use it--it has turned into my new favorite! One of my goals for the month is to wear lipstick more and I like that this is neutral but still adds something to your look. Definitely, check it out!

(Psst! Read about why wearing lipstick is one of my goals here)

Also, have you heard Christy Nockels new album, Be Held: Lullabies for the Beloved? I have been listening to it this week and love it! My favorite songs are: Always Remeber to Never Forget, River of Grace, Head to Toe and Close Your Eyes. So good.


Prayer walks have been my favorite this week. Getting out in the fresh air, moving and talking to Jesus has been so good for my soul. 


One day it was really cold so I took a mug of hot tea with me to keep my hands warm. So if you ever see a girl with a mug on a walk, it's probably me. Haha.


I am so excited that it is the weekend! Today, Sophia and I are going to a local coffee shop to work on some stuff and drink PSL's and then tonight we are watching the new Spiderman movie. Then tomorrow I am hoping to do some watercoloring, we have a birthday party in the afternoon and then Sophia and I are watching High School Musical 3 (cheesy but so good!). On Sunday we are starting a new topic in Sunday school and resting. God is so good!

What are your weekend plans?

That's all folks! Have a blessed weekend!
