๐ŸŒบ 5 Friday Faves ๐ŸŒบ

5 Friday favs
Hello everyone, thank you for stopping by. It’s been a busy week and I managed to write one post on Dealing with disappointment and managing your emotions. To read it, click here. Now onto my five Friday Favorites...

5 Friday Faves

  1. Honey moon w almond milk. SO DELICIOUS and my new favorite coffee drink. Have you heard of Summer Moon? It’s a delicious coffee shop that serves wood fired coffee. They have a variety of different flavors but I’ve fallen in love w the Honey Moon. I’m craving one now!  It’s basically a latte made w honey but Summer Moon coffee just has this special and unique flavor that is indescribable. I also chose almond milk instead of regular milk. If you are close to the Austin are you should give it a try!


  2. This video is SO POWERFUL to me. It’s a timely reminder of who I need to listen to... watch to the end. It is forcefully compelling to me to see a great king turned into a poor helpless slobbering old man because he was under the spell of evil. Reminds me of my own journey in life;  I was paralyzed, sick and my eyes veiled...Jesus rescued me and gave me Truth, dignity and restored my soul.                          

  3. My beautiful giant piece of petrified wood. I’m having trouble uploading a pic but I’m working on it...Petrified wood fascinates me as it is actually a fossil. It is called a stone as the name suggests from it's Greek root word petro meaning "rock" and literally means rock turned to stone. The metamorphic process that occurs in two steps. The first step in the process is called permineralization where empty cavities in the wood are filled with minerals. The second step in petrification is replacement. Water dissolves organic matter and replaces it with minerals. The result is a remarkably beautiful fossil. Fascinating fact: Petrified wood will no longer burn.  

  4. It’s my husband’s birthday this weekend. I’m so in love and so thankful I get to be Nathan’s wife. He is so generous in so many ways. Grateful our souls are fused. ๐Ÿ’ž

  5. Fake Bake Sunless Tanner. It’s finally shorts weather and in order to get myself ready to bare my legs, I have been using this sunless tanner to give my skin that summer glow. This is my favorite self tanner. It looks very natural and not orange or streaky.  It also lasts about a week and doesn’t appear patchy when wearing off.  It has a color that is instant so you can see where you have applied to avoid dark blotchy areas. I highly recommend this self tanner and get questions about quite often. Amazon has the best price here.  I have also been excited to see quick and fantastic results from this post: ๐Ÿ‘Combat Cellulite and Knee Saving Workout. ๐Ÿ‘ and the quick and simple vacation workout I mentioned here.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Thank you so much for reading.
Grace & peace,
Adoring Family
