Friday Favorites

Welcoming the weekend with a few favorites from this week:

Favorite Post of the Week//
They Should've Warned Me
If you're a Mama, take a few minutes to read this. It's like she wrote everything I've felt for the last 6 years.
Favorite New Face Cream//
This Mimosa Blossom Dream Cream from the Super Salve Co. is my new love. All winter I've struggled with awful dry skin and after trying everything under the sun, I feel like I've finally found the right face cream for my skin! My sweet friend Julie Lamb suggested it to me and I'm forever grateful.
Favorite Thing Happening in our Kitchen//
The other day I got a wild hair to start growing our own sprouts. I posted about it on Facebook and one of my Mom's most wonderful life-long friends, who happens to be really into health and wellness sent me this link. 

10 Reasons To Eat Sprouts, A Living Food With Amazing Health Benefits

The next day, the kids and I headed to our local Co-op and picked up some organic Mung Beans. After just about a day, our sprouts are well on their way and we've been getting the biggest kick out of watching them grow.
Favorite Hike I Pinned This Week//
Blanca Lake, Washington. This lake is hike-in only and it looks absolutely stunning. This hike is an absolute must for this summer.

Favorite Book I'm Reading Right Now//
This book is absolutely one of the best books I've ever read. It's breaking me down, and making me see life in a different way. I feel like I'm waking up to my life and realizing how technology addicted we all are. 

The best part is that since I love it so much, I couldn't help but email the author and ask her if she'd provide a copy for me to give away to one of you. Rachel (the author) was so sweet! She emailed me back and a copy for one of YOU is on the way to my house! This book is so good that I'd feel like I was doing something wrong, if I didn't share it. 

So, be watching for the giveaway. This is a book I wish every Mama would read. 
Favorite Selfie of the Week//
Exactly 6 years ago today, it was my due date. Little did I know, he'd join us 3 days later and 6 years later, I'd still shake my head in amazement while trying to wrap my head around the fact that God picked ME to be his Mama. He's the one who made me a Mom and although it's the hardest thing I've ever done, it's beyond a doubt, the BEST thing in the world. 

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon- instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
- Dale Carnegie

Have a great weekend, friends. 


  1. I started Hands Free Mama last year but never finished it. This post has inspired me to put it on my To Read list again. :) Also, I love that pic of you and Judah. You are so pretty and he is so! cute!

  2. I thought your skin looked so pretty lately!

  3. I love sprouts so much! I've never tried to grow them before, I am definitely going to now! Thanks for linking up with Happy Monday :)


Thank you for your comments. I read every single one of them and they always make me smile.
