Friday Favorites

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm ready to get this weekend going.

I'm linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci for Friday Favorites.  Enjoy my favorites for this week.
I received my new She Reads Truth Bible a little over a week ago and I love it.  My only regret is not being bold enough to get the coral.  I do love the gray linen though.  
We have a little boy who loves to read.  However, there is not much cuter than a little boy reading with his Daddy and also doing a major head bobbing dance.  
This week we had the launch of Active Hydration Serum with Rodan + Fields.  I am so excited about this product.   
My favorite thing about this product is that we can ALL benefit from more hydration.  This product works with all of our Regimens.  If you would like to know more please e-mail me at  I would be happy to help you.  Also, any Preferred Customer who purchases a Regimen in May or June is going to get a free sample of this amazing product.  You don't want to miss this opportunity.  

We are trying to add more color to our house and we finished one of the flower beds on Monday.  I loved how it turned out, I'm just hoping my flowers don't die on my watch.

I know that Carson is just in daycare but his school pictures are always a favorite.  I mean, when did my baby become a little man?

I'm also linking up with Christina for Five on Friday.

Tuesday Talk

Happy Tuesday everyone.  I'm linking up with Erika and Fancy Ashley today for their Tuesday Talk.  

Everyone posts about such different things.  It is fun to read through them all.  

Over the last few weeks, my time in the Word and even my desire to be in the Word has been weighing heavy on my heart.  I grew up knowing the truth of God's Word.  I have had periods in my life where I woke up each morning longing to read and study it and there have been periods in my life where it has been just the opposite.  I've been reminded lately that the good news is that God's Word is still there.  It hasn't left and it has not changed.

Isaiah 40:8
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.

I've been planting some flowers lately and I have a black thumb.  I know these flowers are going to die and it will probably be sooner rather than later.   I am so thankful to know that unlike my flowers that are beautiful now and will probably be brown soon that God's Word is beautiful now and will be beautiful in the days, months and years to come.  

I recently bought the new She Reads Truth Bible.  There is nothing special about this Bible in terms of it saying something new.  It doesn't, it is the same Word of God that has been around for years.  I do love it because it constantly reminds me of the beauty of God's Word.  The best Bible is a read Bible.  I pray today that you and I would both be reminded that the truths of God's Word are ready and available to us.  We just need to be in the Word.

Weekend Recap: Easter Edition

Happy Monday!  We are all so tired.  We enjoyed our long weekend with my parents here for Easter, but I know we will all sleep wonderful tonight.  

My parents got here Thursday afternoon in time for Carson's egg hunt at school.

He did much better than I thought he would.  He would try and open each egg to see what was inside before going on to the next one.

Look how tiny he was last year at his egg hunt.

After the egg hunt, we stopped by my friend Stef's house to pick up our muffins.  Stef is baking for missions to fund the mission trips that her family is taking this year.  We LOVE her cheesecakes, but went with blueberry and coffee cake muffins this time.

Friday we went to our Good Friday Communion service and out to lunch before playing outside during the afternoon.  Grandpa and Mimi bought Carson a new Bubble Machine Lawn Mower and he loves it.


Saturday we hit up the Block Party at church.  Carson loved the bounce house but what he really loved was meeting his friend Willow and the Bacon Mac & Cheese.

That afternoon we made Resurrection Rolls before heading to the Saturday Night Service.  

This is a great way to teach the true meaning of Easter in a tangible way.

Sunday morning Carson woke up to his Easter basket being guarded by the Easter Bunny.
He had to move the bunny to get it out of his way.
That afternoon we worked in the yard some and Carson went for a ride with Dad.
Carson, Greg and I ended our Easter weekend by dying some eggs.   
We had a great weekend as a family with my parents here to visit.
I'm so thankful to be able to celebrate a Risen Savior! 

What's Up Wednesday

I'm not sure how we only have a few more days in March, but it is true.  Today is What's Up Wednesday with Mel, Shay and Sheaffer.

As always, I will answer the following questions and one bonus question.

What We're Eating This Week...
 Monday: Fried Chicken Nuggets, Mashed Potatoes and Broccoli
Tuesday: Taco Tuesday
Wednesday: Stir Fry
Thursday: Chicken Alfredo
Friday: We are taking dinner to friends, so I'm not sure yet

What I'm Reminiscing About...

This time five years ago we were in Charleston on our honeymoon.  I keep thinking about our time in Charleston.  Me, the hubby and pralines.

What I'm Loving...
 I'm loving all of the 70 degree days we have been having.

What We've Been Up To...
We had DNow at our church this past weekend.  It was a great weekend and we finally feel rested again.  We also celebrated our anniversary with lunch at Kanki after our busy weekend. 

What I'm Dreading...
I'm afraid we still have several days/weeks of heavy pollen.  I just want to be able to breathe.

What I'm Working On...
 I'm taking part in a Vendor Fair on April 8th so I'm working on mini-facials for Rodan + Fields and some other great items.  I'm hoping it goes well.

What I'm Excited About...
More time to play outside with this buddy.  He loves bubbles and he like to say bubble too. 
What I'm Watching/Reading...
I think I join in with a large group of others in saying I've been watching Beauty & the Beast.  I loved it and I'm ready to see it again.  I've already pre-ordered it on iTunes.

We also had pre-ordered Rogue One so we watched that on Sunday. 

I've been reading Nothing to Prove by Jennie Allen lately. 

What I'm Listening To...
Do you see a trend?  I have had this on repeat for a week. 

What I'm Wearing...
Just the usual...jeans, maxi skirts, light jackets, and the sandals.

What I'm Doing This Weekend...
This is our only free weekend for a while so I'm hoping for some nice weather to spend it outside.
I bought these little starter plants at Target on Monday and I'm hoping to get these going too.

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month...
My parents are coming to visit.  Really, they just want to see the buddy.  Who can blame them.  I mean isn't he the best?  See, the chicks dig him. 

What Else Is New...
I'm not sure if you have seen, but there have been some great new things coming out with Rodan + Fields.

First is our new Active Hydration Syrum that is coming soon!  I'm excited about this one.
I'm also excited about our spring special.  This is a limited time offer.  These Spring gifts will go quickly.  You can order one here or if you have any questions you can e-mail me at

Bonus: What's Your Favorite Spring Wardrobe Piece?
I love all of the colorful sandals!

Show and Tell Tuesday: Top Five Pics

Happy Tuesday friends.  Today I am linking up with Andrea for Show and Tell Tuesday.  Today is our Top Five Pics of all time.  


This is me and my brother Wesley.  I think this picture is perfect.  I have tried to convince my brother we should recreate this as adults.  
This is actually my brother again.  This picture was taken on my first mission trip to Nicaragua.  I love that you can see the dirt on his hands from working but then the beauty that is him taking a moment to stop and sit with a precious little boy.  

 Trying to find a favorite of Carson was so hard.  However, this one captures his personality to me.  He does what he wants to do and he just has the cool factor.

This was our very first family photo.  I love it so much.  What a great day that was.

This one was a no brainer for me.  This is us on our first full day of our honeymoon in Charleston.  This is my absolute favorite and has been framed on my desk at work ever since. 

Thanks for the link up Andrea and I'll see you all tomorrow for What's Up Wednesday.
