Weekly Favorites

Happy Friday!!

Yay Friday and yay date night!! Woohoo!  So excited for the weekend, time with Jared and family and some relaxation! 

I have several favorites from this week I want to share with you before we head into the weekend!


I started a new blog series this week and this is absolutely a favorite!  Tackling the Essentials.  I learn so much from reading how other people handle all the essentials in our day-to-day lives and so I decided to tackle one topic at a time.  I'm going to share how we handle these in our house and hope you'll enjoy the posts & leave me any tips or tricks you use!  Life is hard and busy.  Let's share our tips with each other and build community with each other to just make life a little bit easier.  Check out the first post in this series on laundry here!

I joined my church's finance committee and we had our first meeting last night!  I'm excited to take on a new role at church that allows me to use my talents to serve and am thankful for that opportunity.

I'm currently reading this book & love it so far!  She also wrote my favorite book of the year so far, Unstuffed.  I would highly recommend both!  This one focuses on finances and Unstuffed focused more on stuff in your home, schedules, etc.  I love her books & they have inspired me so much!

I shared this week about my recent diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and a definite favorite is all the love & support I've received from you guys!  It's hard to be raw on social media but it has been totally worth it.  Read the post & watch my video to learn more about what I'm dealing with, why I think it happened now and how I plan on tackling it. 

I have been searching for a good shampoo for a while and after trying several options, I decided to go cheap until I could find something I liked and grabbed this Suave I used to use years ago.  It's crazy cheap & my hair is SO soft!!  Plus the minty scent helps wake me up in the morning!  

I started my new exercise plan this week & am loving it so far!  I'm going to share a whole post & video on that on Monday so be sure to check back for that.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!


  1. What a great week! I will have to try Living Well Spending Less. I so need to do better in that department. I hate to hear about your chronic fatigue. I hope you feel better soon. And I'll have to check out your laundry post! Have a good weekend!

  2. Yesss yay to Friday and date night indeed! I've been a lover of Suave for years, my hair always feels so soft and smells great <3

  3. I am in need of a good shampoo - I may have to try this one out. Especially if it smells like mint - that sounds so refreshing! Enjoy your date night!

  4. I read both of those books this past spring and enjoyed them immensely! I think my favorite of the two was Unstuffed!

  5. I've been wanting to read Unstuffed. I need to just order it! I hope you guys had a great date night!

  6. Oh I need that book, thanks for sharing about it. I have totally been trying to spend less and downsize all the crap I have collected over the years.
