Happy FriYAY friends! I hope you all had wonderful weeks and are ready for a nice, somewhat relaxing weekend. Our weekend will be a little different than normal because Brady is going out of town today. It will be my first night at home without him, which I’m not super excited about, but I will try to make the most of it with a chick flick and face mask or something, haha.
Anyways, I haven’t done a Friday Faves post for far too long! Here are a few things that have been making me feel extra blessed and joyful lately. Feel free to play along and share your faves in the comments below! 🙂
1. Experimenting with Watercolor
Guys, I am not an artist. But I love being creative and trying new things! I bought some watercolor tools with my monthly spending money (Dave Ramsey budget going on over here) and I’d love to grow some skills! I’ve already learned that it’s harder than it looks, but everything gets better with some practice. We will see how it goes!
2. Youth Horizons’ Sun Run
I have become a mentor through Youth Horizons here in Wichita and have loved the opportunity to get to know this sweet girl, Emma! We got to participate in their yearly Sun Run and had an awesome time! If you’re interested in mentoring, please give me a shout and I’d love to give you more info!
3. Spring in Kansas
In between the rain showers, Kansas has been absolutely beautiful lately! I was out on a run the other day and just had to stop and take in this view. I used to find Kansas to be ugly and boring (hello teenage years), but I’ve grown to appreciate the fields and blue skies!
4. 1st Annual District Church Easter Egg Hunt
So clearly this was a couple of weeks back, but we had our first community wide event for the area of Delano and it was amazing! We had no clue what to expect, but ended up having a couple hundred people show up to find Easter eggs and to enter some raffle drawings. We hid 1,000 eggs and they were literally all found within 3 minutes, haha! We absolutely loved getting to meet some of the people in our community and left feeling encouraged and blessed by the new faces and by the servants who helped out from our launch team. God was so sweet to us through this event!
5. New Podcasts!
I love listening to podcasts when I’m driving, working out, cooking, doing dishes, etc. So finding new podcasts is always a win! These have been my two newest favorites and I highly recommend them! Jenna Kutcher on the Goal Digger Podcast is sweet and sassy and you feel like she’s your new best friend. She has awesome business advice for entrepreneurs, loves Jesus, and is so fun to listen to! Jamie Ivey interviews various women on The Happy Hour who have awesome stories of faith to share. You feel like you’re sitting down with a couple of friends, coffee in hand, talking about life. It’s great!
Ok, now it’s your turn! Please share something that has left you feeling blessed lately in the comments below. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
