Friday Faves // vol. 2

How has it been a month since I have posted my Friday Faves?! I am excited to give a little sneak peek into a few of my favorite things on everyone’s favorite day… FRIDAY! I hope you all have a relaxing and fun-filled weekend ahead!

1. organic rice cakes, super YUM!

I have eaten this bad boy every morning for at least two weeks. Top it with a spoonful of natural peanut butter with nuts (my fave), an egg, or even avocado for a delicious and surprisingly filling breakfast food! Let your imagination run wild on top of this healthy thang. I buy my organic rice cakes at our local Earth Fare. Give it a try!

2. unleash the nerd… pottermore.com

This website was created by the author who posts updated tales straight from “Reeta Skeeter” herself.

Yes, we love Harry Potter. My husband and I love watching Harry Potter together. I think they’re just so fun and makes me feel like a kid again. I was never allowed to watch these as a kid since my parents jumped on the “no Harry Potter allowed in Christian homes” bandwagon. I plan on letting my kids enjoy a little Harry if they so wish. My opinion: Remind them that all things Harry Potter is make-believe & move on. Easy-peasy. As long as they are old enough to know the difference between truth & fantasy. What are your thoughts? I’m curious!

3. it’s time for a new devotion!

Since my Beth Moore Prayer Journal is now filled to the brim, it’s time to start a new devotional! Although this is more of a read than a daily devo, I plan on reading a few paragraphs and really dig into what the author is teaching. It’s about being intentional in your time with Jesus and not letting this busy life get to you. This book was left in my mailbox by a sweet & dear friend, Jessica. She absolutely loved it & I am so excited to get started! If you haven’t read the encounter of these two sisters & Jesus, check out Luke 10:38-42!

4.  work it, girl!

Our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY BEACH TRIP is approaching us quicker than I would like! My hubs and I joined an awesome gym in a local church & have been watching more closely what we eat! Our health & fitness has been a priority that we are finally seeing through. We fail a lot (we love our chocolate cupcakes) but like God’s grace, everyday is fresh & NEW! My bffs have become spinach salad with a handful of cashews & a drizzle of organic dressing, homemade coffee creamer, all kinds of fish, freezer smoothies & lots of water! Recipes & work out plans are in the works for the blog soon!!!

5. faithful friendships are my fave!

20140711-134526-49526799.jpgMy sweet friend, Jaimie, sent this to me this morning with the caption, “praying for you!” It’s the little things, friends! I am so thankful for friendships based on God, true care for the other person, & encouragement. Listen, God is glorified when you and I carry the burdens of the people in our lives. That’s what we are called to do! That little encouragement was just what I needed! Oh, and Jaimie is also a super-new blogger with a website I am sure you will be hearing about in my upcoming posts! Let’s focus on people rather than our blog’s fame. Friends over Facebook. Family over our own little personal bubble. Let’s live life with one another. That glorifies God.

You are loved!

  1. What amazing friendships. I love the idea of passing on books to friends we love. My husband and I just joined a gym, too. He’s been going faithfully for years, and let’s just say I’m not doing as well. One step at a time. 😉 Happy weekend!

  2. First off, I love Harry Potter! My mom was totally against it when I was younger but my dad got me into it while I was at his house (perks of divorced parents!) and I fell in love with it! If I have children, I will totally let them read it as long as they know it’s make-believe. As for that devotional, I was just thinking about that story the other morning and how I more like Martha and how to change that in my life. I am going to find it now, thanks for the suggestion!

  3. Great blog, I look forward to your posts 🙂 it’s like a breath of fresh air to read! Blessings. PS I LOVE Harry Potter and there are actually amazing faith morals amongst the stories too, check out

  4. Great blog! I always look forward to reading it, it’s like a breath of fresh air! Also, I LOVE harry potter and I actually find a lot of beautiful faith morals in the storylines. Check out this book, ‘the literary magic of Harry potter’ by Greg Garrett. He explores the value of Harry Potter to Christians 🙂 blessings
