5 Friday Favs.

Hello Everyone, happy Valentine's Day!



That is from a little spread I put together for my CC moms. I love that I was able to use some of the cute things from Andrea!

Today I am thankful to be celebrating Valentine's Day with the love of my life. We def have our ups and downs but he is still the greatest person I know and I am so thankful to be his wife.

So onto my 5 Favs post...I have compiled  quick list of my fav things today:

1. I am SO loving this little under desk peddler!


It is compact and easily folds up neatly under my bed. I love using it in the morning while reading my devotion and going through my DMs. It's the perfect amount of exercise to get my blood pumping and I just enjoy doing it. I can sit on the edge of my sofa and halfway relax while still exercising. 

2. My Favorite Times of Day Water Bottle.
I have talked about this before many times. I drink two of these and have my daily water intake. It is best to sip water throughout the day in these increments. It hydrates your cells better and is easier on your pancreas. I usually add a little cranberry juice to help detox and diminish the appearance of cellulite. You can read more about that by clicking here.

3. Collagen
I have been putting this collagen in my coffee for four years! It helps my skin, hair, and nails as well as my digestive system. It's also a great source of protein and I use it in recipes such as chocolate peanut butter protein balls. They are amazing! I will post the recipe soon. Promise ha!

4. I LOVE taking a trip to town with my little ones.


Sometimes, if you are overwhelmed or just feeling the winter blues, it's good to get out of the house and change your scenery. We usually run to town for an ice cream from Chick Fit A or, if it's Friday, we have Frosty Friday at Wendy's. Just a simple little treat like that will break up the day and my little ones think its absolutely awesome! And let me just say I am SOOO excited that they are building a Chick Fil A right down the street from my house. Oh this will be amazing. We usually have to drive across town for such a treat but in the next few months we will have a CFA right down the street! I am thrilled!!!

5. Today is Valentine's Day. My sweetie bought be a beautiful box of Godiva Chocolates and very heartfelt card. He always picks the sweetest cards. I think his Christmas card to me was my favorite gift this year.

I did receive two homemade macrons today as well and they were AMAZING!!!
And in honor of Valentine's Day I drew y'all a little heart!




That's it for today! Let us not forget that we love because He first loved us.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Grace & peace,
Adoring Creations

❤️5 Friday Favs❤️

Hello everyone, I hope you had a wonderful week! I cannot believe it’s Friday already but I’m here for it! Thank you for reading my post, I have a simple list of favorites this week. 

1. Andrea Nine is absolutely my number one fav this week. I hope you are feeling better, sweet friend. You don't know how much you mean to me. This sweet lady is kind, loving genuine and has taken me under her wing and shown so much love and wisdom with me. She knows I have had kind of a rough month and she went out of her way to send me a beautiful box full of goodies! She Knows how to make someone feel special and loved. She sent messages just to check on me! She is a gem and I am so grateful I have her in my life!!! Check her out at LivingonCloudAndreaNine.blogspot.com



2. The YouVersion Bible App is my second fav. I am sure you have heard of this app by now. I love it because there are a variety of reading plans for all ages. My daughter found one she loves and I have been doing one with my friend, Jess for quite a while. We usually finish one and stat a new one. I am grateful l to have the opportunity to do studies with friends. I have loved many of the plans I found and I also love how you can keep track of your days in the Bible studies. It is an excellent tool and I highly recommend you check it out!



3. Maybelline SuperStay Ink Crayon Lipstick, Matte Longwear Lipstick Makeup, Lead The Way. I LOVE this lip color! Everything about this lipstick is wonderful to me. From the natural smell and feel, the staying power and the color! I am a fan. It is on my subscribe and save and my daughter is already trying to steal it from me. It gives you a lip color that is moisturizing yet long lasting. This color is natural yet bold. I really am happy with it and wear it on a daily basis. It's under $7 or $6 of you do subscribe and save. Can't beat that!


4. New Mercies every morning. I am always grateful for a new day, a new chance to do my best.  I will struggle one day and try as hard as I can, but if I fall, I get back up and try again. I know my kids will not have a perfect momma but they will have one that tries to give her best every day and that loves them will every fiber of her being. Some
days it can look different than others. Some days I feel I can improve so the next day I will wake up, ask the Lord for help, wisdom, strength, and the will to do His will. Then I thank Him for His grace and mercy and start that day fresh. 



5. Last favorite today is kinda something I’ve taken for granted. My dishwasher! My DW has been broken since Christmas and wow, we go though a LOT dishes! It was under warranty but I had trouble getting the repair scheduled. It was finally repaired yesterday and let me tell you, I could not be more thankful to have a dishwasher again!!! Side note: always run your hot water before you start your dishwasher to keep it performing at it’s peak. 




That’s about all I have today. We have another busy day that I will share more about next week but for now I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Thank you for stopping by!  
Grace & Peace,
Adoring Family
