friday favorites


Oh yay...it's Friday!  I've needed this day to get here since, like, Monday!  And guess what...I have NO PLANS for this weekend!  Oh happy day!!

I've loved connecting with so many of you through talking about essential oils!  Some of you may be completely sick of me, and that's fine...here's a fair warning, I'm going to keep talking about them. :)  If you missed it, I did a 4 part series on Back to School with Essential Oils, which you can find  hereherehere, and here.  Next week I'm going to start a series (over the course of a couple months) on the Everyday Oils Collection from Young Living.  This is the set that sold me on EO's.  And the name fits it perfectly, as they're the oils I use everyday for so many things.  So be sure to check in next week on Tuesday....I'll also be doing more giveaways on my IG account.


Ok...now for some of my favorite reads from this week.  I have to be honest, I didn't get to read and respond as much as I'e this week.  School has been overwhelming for me.  Not bad, just really busy.  Steve got sick at the beginning of the week and now Claire is sick.  I'm doing what I can to stay healthy...hello essential oils!!  But it's just been a rough week.  Blogging is something I thoroughly enjoy, and it's been hard to not have it be such a consistent part of my day.  I just keep telling myself that this is a season, soon enough it will all change again...I'll be blogging at 3am when I'm up nursing Judy!  Alright...back to the point...here are some great reads from my week:

I love this story of Meagan's...how she and her husband got together...so cute!  And what a gorgeous bride!

Ashley wrote about sponsorships, and I think she totally hit the nail on the head with this one.  I'm not an avid blog sponsor, but I do it every  now and then.  These are all definitely things I look for when sponsoring, so I'm glad she blogged about it!

My friend Natalie beautifully writes her heart, and this post is one for all the mommas.  All about giving...sacrifice.  So good.  I love how she captures the heart of motherhood in her posts.

I love this post Cassie wrote about the assumption that prevents from declaring.  For me it was totally thought provoking, which I love when it comes to topics in faith.  I appreciate her realness and honesty when sharing, so good!

It's been fun to read so many Blog-tember posts, and this one from Bailey is just so good.  I think it's so important to actually write down the things we love about ourselves.  Not in a prideful showy way, but just as sweet reminders of who we are and who we were created to be!

I hope you all have a relaxing weekend...getting healthier! I really need to get better at blogging ahead of schedule for those weeks when life just happens.

Sometimes the posts we're the most nervous about are the ones that need to be out there the most! I'm glad you got so much positive response.

It's amazing what a day of rest will do. Claire was fine and back to school on Friday. I came home last night and crashed...in bed by 7:30, sound asleep! Haha...I feel so much better now, but am still in my pajamas at 10:30...I love the weekends!

Amy @ Set Free said...

Girl...you're preaching to the choir! ;) But yes, I got great sleep last night and feel so much better today! Hope you're feeling rested as well. :)

Amy @ Set Free said...

She's better...thanks to the oils! :) It's funny, she asks for them all the time now! :) And I absolutely loved your post...still has my mind spinning and thinking. Have a wonderful weekend!

Amy @ Set Free said...

We're all back to being healthy! YAY!! And yes, I'm trying to get onto a good weekend writing schedule so I can focus more on reading and commenting during the week and not so much on writing! How's the move going??

ashortblonde said...

Thanks for asking! We're at the calm before the storm stage...we get the truck on Monday, so hopefully the weather cooperates. I just hope everything fits! haha

ashley said...

That is true!

Amy @ Set Free said...

So exciting! Moving is such a pain, I can't imagine transporting to a new state! But I'm sure you are so excited...what an adventure. :)

Meagan said...

You are too nice, thanks for including my post! And for linking up, and for sharing the oils with me- still need to order but am this week! Hope you had a great weekend of no plans :)

Amy @ Set Free said...

Of course! I loved your post...it was so sweet! Let me know if you have any troubles ordering the oils, it should be really easy, but sometimes things like that can be confusing!
