Happy Friday y'all! It's supposed to be sunny this weekend and I feel like it's been forever since we got any sun around these parts! It doesn't matter if it's 20 degrees out--if the sun is shining then I'm in such a happy mood.
I'm linking up with Andrea for Friday Favorites today.
I used to not be a fan of candles--so strange, I know. The only scent I liked of anything was a fresh linen scent. Then my sister became obsessed with Bath and Body Works candles....and I did too. The last time she and I were at BBW together, I picked up this new candle because it smelled like spring in a jar :) I was able to burn it one warm day that we've had and am hoping to be able to burn it on Sunday after church since the high is 65!
I posted yesterday about my weight battles and my new Diet Bet game. I got a lot of great support from other bloggers and I really appreciate y'all! Each email I opened really encouraged me. I have enjoyed taking control of my eating. I've really realized that I let my eating get out of control and it became gluttonous--which is sinful. I would eat even when I wasn't hungry simply because it tasted good. I am striving to glorify God in my body (1 Corinthians 6: 19-20) and to be healthy, so I can serve the Lord my very best.
Since I get up super early during the work week (I'm talking 5 AM, y'all) and I eat breakfast then, by the time break comes at school at 9:55, my stomach is growling! I've found a great, healthy snack that fills me up so I'm not hungry before lunch. I have been taking a low fat vanilla yogurt and mixing it with 1/8 cup of high protein granola. SO good!
I've been getting my nails done professionally once a month and so Tuesday was my day for February! I enjoy painting them myself, but I just need someone to clean up my cuticles. I picked this deeper purple from OPI--unfortunately the label was removed from the bottom so I don't know the name!
