Friday Favorites-10.16.20

Hey There Everyone!  Happy Friday!

WHEW!  There's something about those four day weeks that feel like they go on FOREVER to me!  Andrea and I have teamed up again to bring you FRIDAY FAVORITES!  It's that day of the week where we get together to share some FAVES from our week.  Bloggers, we'd love for you to join us just add your blog to the link-up at the bottom of the post.  Thank you!

Here's my list for the week...
First up is THIS!  One of my girlfriends, Tracy, shared it over on her Insta-Stories and it spoke to me.  Definitely a FAVORITE!  I've never thought about balance versus harmony but I loved her words.  We should be striving for that harmony that leaves us fulfilled and peaceful when we go to bed every night.  And who am I kidding?  Harmony just sounds a little better.  Doesn't it?

*************************

Friendships in my life are one of my FAVORITE things!  Long time friendships, new friendships, neighborhood friendships, and the list goes on and on...something God has placed on my heart this week is how thankful I am to have women of all kinds who are so supportive and prayerful for me and my family. This week was a tough one and I had several friends praying, reaching out, and just checking up on us.  

*************************

This meme is for sure my FAVORITE of the week!  HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!  One of Nixon's baseball coaches used quick sand as an analogy this week and I seriously wondered if he even knew what that was.  Why was it such a big deal when I was younger?  Now, we never hear about it!!

*************************

Back to that friendship quote, some of the same friends who were praying for our family this week grabbed this at Trader Joe's for me.  A new FAVORITE coffee!  It's seasonal, which means I should probably be stocking up right now because it's so good!  Pumpkin spice lattes are not my jam, but this pumpkin spice coffee is almost so good I don't even need creamer!  However, I still add a splash.  ;) 

*************************

Guess who has an off-weekend?  THIS GUY!!  I'm all-in supportive of Tab's officiating but one of my FAVORITE things is when he's home in the fall.  Last weekend, his game got postponed so we had a little unexpected weekend together, but this weekend has been on the books.  Looking forward to a weekend with him!

*************************

My kids' new FAVORITE space is our loft.  This used to be an utilized spot in our house, but after our little update now this is the new game/book spot.  Just a reminder to myself that moving toys around, rearranging furniture, etc. really does help my kids see toys/games/books in a new light.  Maybe it'll help yours too?

*************************

My friend, Erin, shared this Instagram account, SimplyOnPurpose.  She's a great mommy follow who emphasizes positive parenting and positive reinforcement.  She shares such great little reminders for me and thought it might help you too!  New FAVORITE!  {Thank you, Erin!}

Thank you guys for reading today!  Hope your weekend is a great one!

I love your loft space!! I’ve been working ours too and throwing away toys at an alarming rate. 😂 The boys just don’t play with toys much anymore except for the random remote control car and Nerf guns! That Inspired Chick

Quicksand and fires; I thought the way they showed up in almost every tv show and then fire prevention week each year at school that it was pretty much inevitable I'd have to deal with both fairly regularly! LOL.
