Five on Friday


How cute is this idea? Several of my weekly reads...Hello!Happiness, Earning Our Stripes, Pomp and Circumstance and The Good Life (clearly there's a bloggy-niche here)...have been "linking up" the past few Friday's and sharing five things on their mind that week. It's been so much fun to read, so I decided to join this week.  Also, it's a perfect place for all the random thoughts of the week to be featured- although I am SURE you'd love to ready a full post on the latest music I'm listening to, right? I didn't think so. You're welcome.

1. Country Music.

Maybe I'm inspired by my favorite show on TV right now, The Voice, but country's coming back, y'all. My radio is now permanently on country music stations, and my new favorite song, well it's redneck y'all, and 100% awesome. Check it out if you're not easily offended :).

2. Athleta

I would not call myself an enthusiastic "worker-outer"  but since the short guy came around and changed my body FOREVER, I've been going to a local gym, Hot Mamas, which whips. my. butt. I quickly grew fond of Lululemon, HOWEVER, my loyalty has shifted. I love Athleta's products - their workout gear is stretchy, the material lightweight and perfect for the summer, they have great sports bras, and it just fits my body so much better. And, oh  yeah, it's not as pricey as Lulu, and as far as I know, provides a lot more, coverage, if ya know what I mean.

3. This Recipe.

YOU. GUYS. If I could I would make Mexican three times a week and it would NEVER get old. Never ever. We have a new rotation these days and they are delicious, OK for you, and vegetarian. And my husband loves them. Win win. Love her blog too, check it out:

4. These two.

My brother and sister-in-law just moved from my homestate, Texas, to Colorado, 20 miles down the road.  I have tried really hard not to get too excited until they were here, but, guess what? They are here, they just closed on their NEW HOUSE today, AND it's their 5 year anniversary. Is there anything more important than family? Nope- and mine just got a few hundred miles closer.

5. MUST READ: Left to Tell

I'm a huge reader, and a couple months ago finished this book about the Rwandan genocide. Last weekend we watched Hotel Rwanda for the first time and it once again hit my heart hard. As a Believer this book is a MUST read, it truly is a story about God showing up in the darkest moments. And if you're not familiar with this tragic time in history, I encourage you to get familiar.

Cheers to the weekend, y'all and to all the special daddy's out there!
