Five Favorites link up (vol. 2)

Hello again ladies!  I have to be honest, when I think of my five favorite things that got me through this past week I automatically think about antibiotics.  But I'll refrain from making that my #1 again - although I'm still on them!

1)  More2Life

This is an amazing radio show based on the Theology of The body. The show is hosted by Dr. Gregory Popcak and his wife Lisa Popcak.  They've written multiple (and wonderful) books on parenting, marriage, love, and all that comes with it! I download the podcast (for free) and listen on my runs.  I love this!  It not only makes me run longer b/c I want to finish the show, but it guides me in life, brings me closer to Christ, and keeps me in check with my marriage and family life.  Whether you're single, married, young or older this podcast is for you.  

2)  Floral (or whatever it's called) dresses

I think that anyone who knows me, knows that I like solid colors!  I always have, and lets be honest I always will (with exception to a little fun poka-dot here and there).  That said, this past weekend I attended a reunion.  I needed a new dress (b/c it's been well over a year since I bought one, and before that.....5 years!)  So A good friend directed me towards a store and simply said that I shouldn't be afraid to look outside my comfort zone.  I found this lovely, fun dress.  I love it!  It's so comfy, and cute and MODEST!!!  At first I would say it was out of my comfort zone........ but maybe I just changed zones!

3) Coffee-Mate

French Vanilla Liquid

Here's the deal - I love coffee!  Do I know what coffee tastes like without Coffee-mate? Yes, but I don't care for it :)  (really I'll drink it any way I can get it, but I will move Heaven and Earth if we are out to get it and make my morning just right!)  So maybe I don't love coffee - maybe I love sugar???  Hmmmm, just maybe! 

4)  The Pioneer Woman

I started following P-Dub years ago - but it was b/c of photography.  Though my time with her is limited now, I am still secretly in love!  Ok, not such a secret.  This week particularly I've been thinking about her cinnamon rolls!!  I want disparately to make these and have them in the freezer ready to go for Easter morning.....but I'm not sure I can put myself through the torture of making them.  We gave up sweets, and though I know its a great opportunity in discipline I did make three wonderful cakes already this Lent..... not sure I can put myself to the test again :) We'll see!

5) These faces!

 Though I had tons of fun on my weekend getaway.  
 Nothing can replace these gifts from God!
Walking in the door, everyone screaming with joy and running towards me was the highlight of my week!  I love my fan club!!

Now head on over to Moxie Wife and read some more!!!

I have to admit that all of your favorites are also some of mine! That dress! I saw it in your last post and thought it looked so, so, so, sooooo great on you! By the way, I nominated you for a Liebster Award so you'd have to keep writing for us to like to keep reading!
Hope to see you soon!!!

Thanks for sharing that podcast. My husband is addicted to podcasts, so I'm sure he'll like this one too and he's getting me hooked, so I'll be sure to add this one!

That dress is almost as beautiful as the gal wearing it. :)
