Five for Friday

Happy Friday!  This week was not too busy, yet it seemed to go by so quickly!  Let’s jump right in to five things on my mind…

Sorry for the blurriness.  This article in a recent Parents magazine was sharing that antibacterial soap may not be as fabulous as first thought.  In particular, one ingredient, triclosan, is being picked up in the bodies of pregnant moms.   Yikes!  Here’s the FDA’s official stance, but I think regular soap, hot water, and some scrubbing may just be the safer bet.

I’ve been hit or miss with my journaling/quiet time.  I am usually flexible with myself wether it happens in the morning or the evening.  Well, I’ve been a little TOO flexible with myself and missed a lot of days this week.  I got up a little earlier this morning to take the time to read some of the blogs I follow for some encouragement.  Here are my favorites:  Love God Greatly, A Holy Experience, and The Better Mom.  All these sites make regular posts (some daily) and can provide that accountability that we all need at time to spend time with your Bible and in prayer.  I also really like the short devotionals in my Jesus Calling book.

Switching things up – I’ve got some plans in the works to change up how I do things like my workouts and diet.  I’ve been doing a lot of research on some different options.  It’s going to be a hard shift as I am super habitual, but I’m excited about it too.  I’ll share more about all this later.

So…the Mr. joked on my jean jacket yesterday and told me it was so 1990s/1980s.  What the world?!?!?  I love my jean jacket!  I put this picture on Instagram and got confirmation that it’s A-OK and he’s clueless when it comes to ladies’ fashion.  😉

However, I did notice that I absolutely HATE my new, thicker eyebrows!  I’ve been working on this project for weeks.  By working, I mean getting lots of professional waxing (to curb my over plucking) and dealing with lots of brow strays.  All for nothing!  This picture showed me that I just look better with thinner brows.  How’s all this info treat you?!!?  Completely trivial, I know.  If you’ve ever attempted to grow out brows, you know that the struggle is real AND now pointless!  Tweezers, here I come!

All the April birthdays!  Happiest of birthdays to…

  • my friend, Katey
  • my sister-in-law, Sarah Beth
  • my sister-in-law, Brookie

Wish I could see all these ladies more often, and I’m slightly jealous of their spring birthdays!  What gorgeous flowers blooming everywhere!

Happy {almost} weekend!

  1. I know what you mean about falling out of the routine! I love my Jesus Calling and always enjoy that time so I keep it right on my nightstand so I have no excuse but to get to reading first thing in the morning 🙂 Love your jean jacket! He’s cray!
