{random} Friday Favorites (again!)

While I'm Waiting...Random Friday Favorites
A quick look back over my Friday FAVORITES posts and you will see that the majority of them are completely random.  My post yesterday solidified what I secretly knew - my life is just one big bowl of random!  :)

So, without further adieu, here are my {random} Friday FAVORITES for this week!  :)

{one}
one of my FAVORITE Instagram feeds
If you have a toddler, had a toddler, or just know a toddler, this feed will crack.you.up!  It's written as if the toddler is posting.  I've been known to actually laugh out loud while reading them!  Follow honesttoddler - I promise you won't be disappointed!

one of my FAVORITE apps
While I'm Waiting - Friday Favorites - one of my fav apps
Timehop is a time capsule of the pictures you post.  Every day it will give you a snap shot of the picture(s) you posted from the past couple of years on your social media sites.  Everyone loves #TBT and with Timehop, you get that everyday!  Here are some of my FAVORITE timehops that I had in my camera roll:

FAVORITE story of the week
I love to hear stories about people doing small things that turn in to BIG things!  The owner of P.B. Jamms in Warr Acres, Oklahoma, noticed that someone had been going through their trash looking for food to eat.  Instead of complaining she wrote a note and offered up a free lunch - no questions asked.  

'I think we've all been in that position where we needed someone's help and we just needed someone to extend that hand and if I can be that one person to extend that hand to another human being then I will definitely do it.'  
- Ashley Jiron, owner of P.B. Jamms

Ashley had no idea (and no intentions) that her note would go viral.  People wanted to help so she started a pay-it-forward scheme at her diner.  She also started a GoFundMe account for those not near Oklahoma.  If you would like to help Ashley, you can find more info here.
way to go, Ashley!!!

FAVORITE event - Pizza, Pie & Parents
Mike and I were treated to this cute event at Hope's school.  So much fun being able to have lunch with Hope and her friends!
bonus were the handmade gifts she made us!

{five}
FAVORITE book
While I'm Waiting...Friday Favorites - one of my favorite books - Nobody's Cuter than You
I'm sure I'm not the only one that put this on my Friday FAVORITES this week!  My sweet friend, Shelly, pulled up beside me after church on Sunday and handed me this book.  All I wanted to do was get home, put on some comfy Sunday afternoon clothes, and curl up on my couch and read from cover to cover (it's THAT good!).  Unfortunately, that wasn't in the plan but I was able to finish it in about three evenings.  If you have not read this book, RUN don't walk and get it!  Oh, and buy it for your friends too!  :)  I'm sharing my copy with another friend today.  Shelly wrote me a sweet message inside the front cover.  I plan on adding to it and hope that everyone after me will too.  Reminded me of signing yearbooks when we were younger!
she's my Gulley - definitely couldn't live without her!
While I'm Waiting...1 Samuel 20:42
Friendships aren't easy but they are SO worth it.  This book has encouraged me to be a better friend.  The kind of friend that shows up without being asked because...well, that's just what friends do.  Here are a few of my FAVORITE quotes from the book:
While I'm Waiting...Nobody's Cuter than You
While I'm Waiting...Nobody's Cuter than You
While I'm Waiting...Nobody's Cuter than You
While I'm Waiting...Nobody's Cuter than You
While I'm Waiting...2 Samuel 1:26
While I'm Waiting...Nobody's Cuter than You

Wishing you a great week-end filled with your FAVORITE things (and lots of friends!).  

Have a fabulous weekend!  Gig 'em and God bless! 
Holly
