Five on Friday

Friday, November 7, 2014

These are a few of my favorite things this week!

1. iT! Collective Jeans--Wow!  These are the most amazing jeans ever!  I am sooo picky about my jeans and how they fit.  I've been a devoted follower of GAP Forever Skinny or Always Skinny Legging Jeans, but the last time I went into GAP to try on those jeans to buy another pair, the fit wasn't the same.  Disappointed, I went home and found a pair of jeans in my closet I had bought about two years ago that I had forgotten about.  They are the iT! Collective Jeans and since I haven't found where they sell them locally, I'll have to order from Nordstrom.  I have the "Lola" Stretch Ultra Skinny Jeans and I think that my next pair will be the "Lauren."  When I say these jeans are a must-have, I mean it!  Yes, they may be a little higher than jeans you're used to buying, but I've never worn more comfortable jeans in my life.

2. Mahogany Teakwood Candle from Bath & Body Works--This was one of my bridesmaid gifts from Rachel's wedding.  Dustin and I have been burning this candle like crazy since she gave it to me!  It's actually the same candle she had in her house, and before the wedding, I commented about how great her house smelled.  She knew that I needed that candle!  

3. The Selection Series--Do you love watching The Bachelor?  If so, this series is for you!  This is a kid's version of The Bachelor, but very clean and age-appropriate.  Prince Maxson has to find a wife, so 35 girls from his country are chosen for the Selection. They will live in the palace and train to be the next princess of Illea.  Along the way there are eliminations and these don't have anything to do with a rose ceremony...haha!  Read this book series!  My seventh grade girls LOVE it!

4. God is in the Grocery Aisle article--Sometimes I think women can over-obsess about food choices.  Did I say sometimes?  I mean all the time.  I'm so guilty of this, too.  If I let myself eat too much of a sweet or snack, I hate myself for days.  Reading this article was so refreshing for me.  Ultimately food cannot make us clean, but only Jesus can do this.  This article reminded me that my joy isn't found in eating healthy or exercising every day that I have scheduled, but my joy is found in Jesus.  This is why I should always be joyful!!!  Go ahead and subscribe to the entire Desiring God blog--you won't regret it!  It's full of Biblically sound articles.

5. Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegranate--YUM!  These are fabulous to snack on.  I have to make sure I only eat a few at a time....which can be hard!

  1. I've heard such great things about The Selection! I've actually been wanting to read it for a while, but haven't had a chance to... eventually though! And I love those Brookside chocolates as well. They weren't what I expected initially, but they definitely grow on you the more you have.
