Friday Favorites

It's Friday and I am ready!  We will be busy with basketball tournaments, but I think I might just go ahead and pull out my Christmas decorations.  We always spend Thanksgiving with Dan's side of the family, so it's nice to come home on Friday and have the house all decorated and ready to go. 

I'm linking up again today with Andrea, Erika and Narci.

Here are some of my favorites from this week:


 Coffee and homemade apple pie for breakfast, 2 days in a row.  A favorite for sure!


I've been eyeing this Simplified Planner over the last year, and finally splurged and ordered it yesterday.  For the last couple of years, I've went with the Erin Condren planner, which I love.  I just thought I'd give this one a try and see what I think. 
I will be sure and let you all know what I think of this one verses the Erin Condren planner.


This basketball player, is definitely one of my favorites.  

She's not naturally aggressive.  She's a lover, so she really has to push herself to get in and fight for the ball.  She's doing great though, and she's really enjoyed this season.  Her tournament is today and tomorrow, so I'll be the loud one in the stands, cheering my head off.

It's also going to be a little bittersweet, as this will be the end of her playing junior high sports.  Next year, she'll be on the high school teams.  Eeeek!  This mama isn't ready for that yet. 



With all the red cup drama, that was all over Facebook, I thought I'd share this.  One of my friends posted this, and I laugh every time I see this.


Okay, so I know I've been ranting and raving about how good this bible study is.  And you all are probably sick of hearing about it.  I promise this could be the last time I mention it... but, just in case you are still on the fence about starting or joining a study.  Do it!  We just finished it up this week and I couldn't be more bummed, to be done with this.  I have learned and been reminded of so much.  We really dug into the word and we were all over the bible studying scripture.

  There's just a small group of us who meet up once a week.  We plan to start back up in January, and we're looking at starting Beth Moore's study of Esther.  I can't wait! 

Well, that's all for now.

Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I have been wanting to get a nice planner but have been hesitant. I can't wait to hear which one you like better!

  3. I've always wanted the Simplified Planner, but ended up finding a little one at Target yesterday. I have wanted something small that's easier to carry around with me, so hopefully this one works out.
    And yes for apple pie for breakfast! OMG I want pie right now, darn you Jenny!

  4. That apple pie looks delicious and that's coming from a girl who isn't even too big on pie!

  5. I need to check out this study! Your enthusiasm is contagious!!

  6. How is the size of the Simplified Planner compared to the Erin Condren?? I'm hoping to find a smaller one for next year. Oh man, basketball. I was told that I was "too nice" for basketball because I wasn't aggressive enough. I would just hand the ball over. Haha! The cup...too funny! And yes, I need to do this study!
