Two words - Snapchat AND Bitmoji!!!

I was SO anti-Snapchat.  I mean, seriously, who needs ANOTHER social media to keep up with?!  Well, apparently I do! :)  Oh my goodness, I'm new to the whole Snapchat game but I absolutely love it!  And, now I love it even more since you can add Bitmojis!!!  It's no secret my love of all things Bitmoji.  This little collaboration is a game changer!

I'm not a fan of selfies so now I can add my little Bitmoji to snaps!  It sounds so silly but it truly was a FAVORITE this week!
And...if your Snapchat friends have Bitmoji too, you get cute little Friendmojis!!!

Want to follow along with all the fun?  Come follow me on Snapchat!

crafting with a purpose

A few weeks ago I shared a post about crafting with a purpose.  We love to craft and it's more fun when we can give away what we make.  Carly and Holden made lots of blankets using the tutorial I shared and sent a few to California to a shelter where a friend volunteers.  She sent us this picture yesterday and it was so fun seeing kittens enjoying their creations!!!  Crafting with a purpose is definitely my FAVORITE!!!

National Clear the Shelters Day
Speaking of animals and shelters, did you know that tomorrow is National Clear the Shelters Day?  If you are looking for a new pet, adopt don't shop!  There are so many furry friends looking for the purr-fect fur-ever home. #seewhatIdidthere

These two rescues are at the top of my FAVORITES list!!!

Lysa TerKeurst

Lysa TerKeurst is one of my favorite authors.  When I'm reading her books it's like she has a window into my soul!  She has a new book coming out on August 9th titled Uninvited. I pre-ordered it on the Proverbs 31 website and received the first five chapters early. Friends, if you've ever felt left out, overlooked, lonely, or uninvited, this book will speak to your heart!  Lysa's wisdom is my FAVORITE!

Here's a little dose of Lysa's wisdom:

He made us to reach out not pull back.
He made us to believe the best before assuming the worst.
He made us to freely give grace, realizing we so desperately need it ourselves.
He made us to add goodness, see the beautiful, and rest in the assurance of His lavish love for us.
Never ever for one second did God look at us and say, “My goal for this one is to simply be good enough.”

Our big kids leave on Sunday for a week at their FAVORITE camp - TBarM!

I've written on multiple occasions why I love TBarM.  I love seeing them so excited.  Now, I'm off to pack trunks!  Apparently I love to wait till the last minute! ;)

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day and a weekend filled with all your FAVORITES!

Gig 'em and God bless!

  1. Finally figured out how to add Bitmoji...It totally kept giving me an error until tonight.

  2. According to my 19-year-old son, I am not allowed to sign up for Snap-Chat. He told me that I am banned (basically because he lives on it) because Snap-Chat is for young, cool people and not old geezers like myself. He said that Instagram and Facebook are for the geezer crowd.

    1. Haha! I am being closely monitored by my son so I totally get it!


I love when you leave comments! So...what are you waiting for?! :)
