friday favorites

This week has gone by so quickly, yet has seemed so long at the same time.  How is that even possible?!?  Yesterday Steve and I got to see "Judy".  I had to get another ultrasound done...I guess one perk of being considered high risk is more pics of our sweet babe!...everything looks great and Judy is growing perfectly.  So much to be thankful for.


This week I also did 2 essential oils giveaways on my Instagram account.  So much fun getting to know people that way and learning about all things oils together!  If you're interested, I'll be having 2 more giveaways next week!!  Just come over and follow my IG feed.  (Follow my Essential Oils Pinterest board for more ideas of how to use EO's!)


Ok...onto some of my favorite reads from this week.  I am loving finding new friends through this link-up.  Such a great way to make new friends and encourage each other to continue to do what we all love.

+ Shauna is one of my favorite authors.  And I'm so excited about the announcement of her new book.  I mean, it's not coming out for awhile, but I have something seriously exciting to look forward to!

+ I love how Ashley shared her love for her family here.  I think I loved this post because I can relate to so many things about it...amazing hubs, having a child, and one on the way....filled my heart with love and gratefulness.

+ Thank you Betsy for these blogging tips.  I definitely needed these reminders, I'm doing some of these things, but should be doing ALL OF THEM!  Ok...so I'll be honest...I actually loved all of this girl's posts this week, it was hard to narrow it down to my faves...so for an added bonus, check out this post on succulents.

+ I love Amanda's new space...Life with Grace.  I love how fresh it is and can't wait to see what she's got planned.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  We've got some fun plans, but mostly I can't wait to not wear make-up, not wake up at 5am, and not make a lunch before I go to bed!!

Thanks Amy! I'm a distributor for YL oils so I won't enter to allow someone else get the oils so they can discover how awesome they are for themselves!
