So. I just got back from an amazing Mission Trip to Honduras. Check out the website if you want to see where we went. I’ll be blogging all about our trip later. 

I wanted to share a few things that I love and that I find beneficial to me or my family. 

We did a lot of walking while there and one of my favorite comfy and cute shoes are these Birkenstock lookalikes from Target. My daughters and I all have a pair of the rose gold & the black ones too. So. Comfy. So. Stylish. (A teacher friend was wearing them last year and I spotted them immediately.. because.. hello.. SHOES. ) So you can really thank her. You’re welcome. 

While in Honduras, my essential oils were a necessity. We used the tea tree, lavender, peppermint, AND clove to prevent lice. It worked! And we used lavender and peppermint for bug bites. Deep Relief was a lifesaver after the 6 mile hike. I even ended up leaving it with the girls there. 

My new favorite healthy go to meal is avocado cut in chunks on sesame Ezekiel bread that’s been toasted. I drizzle olive oil on top and McCormick’s original all purpose salt-free seasoning and coarse sea salt and eat it up! 

With school/work starting back for me on Monday, I ordered a few things for my desk. Because it’s my home away from home from 7:15 am until around 3:30 or 4:00pm Monday – Friday. Look at this CUTE glasses holder I got! Amazon prime. Yes. I’m an Amazon Prime fan. Check it out!
  Cute right?! 

When we got back from our Honduras trip I ordered Chatbooks so I could keep the memories close by. Such a GREAT idea. Fast, cheap, and easy. And this way I won’t accidentally delete memories from my computer.. or if I do I’ll still have them printed!

One last thing that’s a new fave. Well. Two. My Mophie charging case 

 and my pop socket that’s attached to the back. This mophie gives me charge all day long. The pop socket makes it easy to carry my phone or prop it up to watch my favorite series on Amazon Prime video. (That’s a plus 😉 )

One of my favorite podcasts is Steven Furtick at Elevation Church. You can find it here

That’s all for this week. There’s more I could share but I’ll save it for another time.

 
Happy Friday!

Hi friends! We all like to find new things and what better way to share some favorites of the week than on the blog. Think of this as a time of us sitting at my table and sharing a cup of coffee or tea or whatever and the things we like. Like a “date”. 

I went to Mexico Beach this week for a short getaway with my sis and niece and her kids. While I was there my sister cooked the BEST LASAGNA EVER. Seriously. That’s even the name for it. It’s The Pioneer Woman’s recipe. I may have eaten like 4 helpings. Carbs don’t count at the beach. Here’s the recipe !

I’ve also really started enjoying something that I never enjoyed before. Something that I had to leave the class because I didn’t want my laughter to disrupt the others. I love Yoga now! I also love Pilates. And if you want a real kick butt workout then you combine the two and you have the Beachbody PiYo workout. Loving all of the Beachbody workout dvds. Some more than others. But yoga has been good for my lower back pain.

As far as pain goes, essential oils are a go to for me. Lavender for burns (as my daughter said the other day “you burn yourself every time you cook”). Tea tree for lice prevention because we are heading out of the country on a mission trip and want to prevent lice. Going to put it in our shampoo and also on our heads. Deep Relief rollerball oil for the tension in my neck and headaches. 

Found a new favorite lipstick too! Always pays to ask someone if you like something they are wearing. It’s a Bare Minerals plumping lipgloss in the color Spark Plug. And I picked up another great color too. Lipstick and mascara (LimeLight’s mascara is my favorite) are a necessity for me.

Looking forward to listening to a brand new podcast this weekend. Jen Hatmaker’s For The Love podcast is ready and waiting for me. It makes a world of difference when you fill your soul with good things instead of negativity. I also started a chapter of Proverbs a day again. Tomorrow will be Proverbs 15. 

Until Next Time.

Happy Weekend. Happy Friday.
