Friday Faves!

Friday, August 17, 2018

Happy Friday, y'all!  This week has gone by pretty fast and I've survived my second week of school haha!  Now, when are we out of school next?! ๐Ÿ˜œ  Just kidding!

I posted an adoption update on Wednesday!!!  So if you missed that, you're going to want to head over there to see where we are in the process.  We are almost 1/4th of the way to our goal, so if you still want to donate you can at ! 

 We still covet your prayers!  Please pray for the lady who will choose us to parent her baby...pray for peace over her decision and for her health.  (We're not matched yet.)  Also, please pray for Dustin and I that we just trust in God during all of this.  We (as people) have a tendency to want to control everything (thanks to our sinful nature) so there are times when we feel like we're totally trusting in God and then other times when we worry about finances or timelines or really anything that can be worried about ha!  Just being real ๐Ÿ˜Š  We've been blown away by the people who have given so far and we are so humbled by that!  Thank you!

Okay, now onto my FAVORITES!!!

I think it's taken me a while to figure this out.  I've been working on losing the weight I gained while taking fertility meds.  I don't know if it's just me or if it's all women, but I used to think that I just needed to hardly eat anything in order to lose weight.  But then I'd end up with my stomach growling at 8pm and either be miserable or eat way more than I should.  I've really learned this time around that I can eat a good sized meal, but it needs to be food that's good for my body.  And when I do that, I step on the scale the next day and see that I've lost weight!

 Yesterday I wore a Lilly top to school.  During my planning, I opened up a can of La Croix and my partner teacher walked in and made the comment about how I matched my drink!  So Lilly or La Croix, if either of y'all want to send me free products to put on my blog, PLEASE DO!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Emily and I are gearing up to host our 3rd annual Fall Favorites link up!!  We have had so much fun doing this the past two years and we're really excited to bring it back.  I'm really excited about the Crock Pot meals link up day because using my crock pot just screams fall and cold weather to me.  Go ahead and mark your calendar to join us the first three Wednesdays in September!!

And for my latest favorite song this week...

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, FRIENDS!!!  I'll be heading to the movies with some of my teacher friends today after school to see Crazy Rich Asians!!!
