Friday Favorites

Hallelujah, today is Friday! I’m linking up with Andrea today to share with you some of my favorites for the week! I;m keeping it short and sweet today with my favorites. It’s the little things that make me happy.

Up first, today is payday! I have not gotten paid since December 23, due to the holiday’s. I’m looking forward to it, but I know that my bills are going to take up a nice chunk of my paycheck. #adulting

Next up is the weather. We are expecting some record snowfall here in Western PA, but I will believe the numbers when I see it for myself. I will say this, it will be nice to see some snow, and be able to stay nice and cozy with lots of coffee and warm drinks.

It’s a three day weekend, so that will be nice to have a Monday off. This next week will be busy and fun at the same time. Tuesday is the Duke game, and I am hoping the weather holds off, and it is decent weather to travel down and back to Pittsburgh in.

What are your plans for this weekend? I’d love to hear what your p…

Life Lately

I wanted to give you all an update on life so far in the new year! I am doing really well on my resolution of reading the Bible every day. I am doing it on the Bible app, and while some days I read it on the app, I usually just use the app to see what I am supposed to read and then actually open my Bible to read it. Then I just check it off when I am done! The one thing I like about using this particular one year study, is there is a devotion before each days reading. By reading this before I begin, I have understood what I am reading so much better!

I am waiting on a few new products to get here, but when they do I begin my quest to lose some weight. Once they get here, I can go ahead and begin! I have some quick workouts that I pulled off of YouTube that I am going to use to get started. Then I actually have P90 that I’d like to use to continue the weight loss. Starting small, then going big. Haha! (P.S. P90 is the less hard version of P90X. The workouts seem effective, and not too…

What's in my Pill Case?

I am definitely not a pill person, but recently I have begun to take some natural supplements. I feel that these have helped me SO much in the last few months that I have been taking them. I wanted to share them with you in case you wanted to try them out as well. My guru at GNC helped me get on the right path with these and she hasn't let me down!

The first thing that I take is Milk Thistle. This helps balance the gut, and also helps a lot with my rosacea. If you don't have a GNC handy, I found what I take on Amazon for you!

The next thing I have been taking is Grapeseed Extract. This is an immune booster. I can honestly say that since I have been taking this, I have not had my sinus problem, or my deep cough that I normally get. I attribute this to the weather, and these vitamins!

Lastly, this is something new that I am trying. I am taking tumeric to help any inflammation in my neck. I have not been on this very long to see any improvement yet, but I hope to report in 2 mo…

Let's Look At...The Coziest Spot

I am linking up with Shay and Erika today to share with you the coziest spot in my house. I actually shared my favorite cozy spot with you during Christmas. It's my bedroom! It is even cozier with the Christmas decorations in it, but will continue even after they are removed.

Take a look at my cozy spot!

Christmas Recap

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Mine was very relaxing, productive, and just the best. I wanted to share a quick recap of Christmas Eve and Day for you all. I didn't take many pictures, and the ones I did take are on my camera, which I have to find the cord to put them on my computer. Wish me luck!

We had our traditional meal of cheese filled pasta, homemade bread, salad, and wedding soup. It was delicious, but I enjoyed it even more a couple of days after. I made the bread, salad dressing, Italian butter dipping sauce, and candy cane ice cream. We ate lunch at 1:00 and then headed to church for 6:00 for Christmas Eve service. That service is one of my all time favorites! Peaceful, spirit filled, and I love the candlelight!

Christmas Day, we hosted breakfast, and dinner. For breakfast, everyone came out to the house and ate, then we were able to open gifts. I got some jewelry, clothes, things for my new car, and a new jewelry box. My aunt and uncle got me a service of 4 in m…

New Year’s Resolutions

I think for the past few years I have done really well on my resolutions, and some I have completely failed at. This year, I really want to keep up with my resolutions, but not because I have to, but because I want to improve who I am and make it a lifestyle.

My first resolution is to lose weight. I did really well a few years ago, but then I got lazy. My family's love language is food, and we are all really good cooks. This one I know will be extremely difficult for me. I'd really like to make the change to get up a half hour earlier, and workout before work. I know that when I get home, I'm not wanting to workout so getting it out of the way in the morning is going to be the best way. I also know that I am going to have to watch what I'm eating, and limit my portions. (Insert sad face here. Haha!)

Another resolution I have is to read the Bible in one year. I also want to be able to spend more time with Jesus daily.  I have some devotions set up, and our monthly faith…

Happy New Year

I hope and pray that 2019 is your best year yet! Thanks for supporting my blog this past year, and your continued support in 2019 is appreciated!
