A few of my FAVORITE things!

While I'm Waiting...a few of my FAVORITE things - happy Friday!
Oh, happy day, it's FRIDAY!!!  We've got a weekend full of basketball games but I'm also looking forward to working on a few more areas for my KonMari challenge!  What about you?  Any fun plans?

You guys know my absolute love for FarmGirlPaints cuffs, right?! Well, today is her last day to be open till April!  You must go check her out!  I have already ordered a new cuff for me and one for my daughter's birthday but there is one more I have my eye on...  If it's still available before Becky closes this afternoon, I won't be able to resist #justonemore!

Here's my newest cuff!!!  Couldn't resist adding my One Little Word for 2016!

Like so many of you, Fixer Upper is one of my FAVS!  Have you ever wondered exactly what happens behind the scenes or had questions about the show?  I came across this post and found it so interesting!  Enjoy!

Many days this is the conversation that repeats itself in our house when the kids get home from school:
ME:  Hey buddy/baby girl!  How was your day?!
THEM:  Good.
The End.

25 Ways To Ask Your Teen "How Was School Today" prompts you to ask those questions that make you ask yourself, "why didn't I think of that?!"  And, there's even an app!

My love for Sevenly has been well-documented here!  Last month in their CauseBox there was a very generous gift card to The Root Collective.  I quickly went online and found these amazing mustard colored ballet flats!  I can't wait for them to arrive!
The Root Collective
The Root Collective partners with makers in Guatemala to produce handcrafted shoes from handwoven textiles. Our makers are defying the odds in their communities, pushing forward with hope in a place where darkness often overwhelms. They are providing jobs, food, and family to many without.

Purchasing with a Purpose is my FAVORITE and I'm glad to find another company that gives back!

    3. LOVE it! Of course, the one I was watching was still available 10 minutes before closing so I got it too! ;) It was the red one with white zig zag stitching - it says "Love is a verb. 1 Corinthians 13" Can't wait to get it!!!

  6. The cuffs are so cool. And it is so good to have ways to start conversations with kids. Jordan and I had a wonderful talk the other day and it was so cool to be able to talk with him like that. There are stages where it is so hard!!

    1. Thanks, Julie! I LOVE the cuffs!!! I tell myself I'm going to wait before I order another one but then I see one that is just calling my name! ;)

      And, I agree with you 100%! There are absolutely times it feels like you are talking to a brick wall with teens! Happy to share! We're all in this together!

      Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you are having a great weekend!
