First of all, thank you so much for the sweet comments about Ashby yesterday. She, of course, was such a trooper and is home resting today. Your kindness does not go unnoticed. Thank you all so much for sending your love, encouragement and prayers.
My dad’s life verse has always been Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Well, one time before a procedure, Erika sent me that verse for Ashby and I immediately thought…how cool is it that God is going to strengthen Ashby with his “righteous right hand” when it’s her right hand that needs all the strength it can get? It’s now the verse I use to pray over her all the time.
Okay, like always, I’m linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci and sharing my favorite things from the week. It’s a random assortment…kind of like my candy post from Wednesday :). But who doesn’t love a random assortment of favorite things? Enjoy your weekend!
…I’m giving all my love to Noonday Collection :). I know that so many of you shop Noonday and so I thought I’d throw it out there today as a favorite. My friend Jennifer gave me these bangles (probably as a thank you for cropping her out of that realllllly awful middle school picture!), and I just think they’re happiness on my arm.
So, if you need to do a little Christmas shopping early, I think some Noonday Collection stuff (like my bracelets) would be an excellent choice!
Until a new crop of Rob Reiner/Nancy Meyers/Nora Ephron-like movies come out, I’m going to continue watching these classics over and over and over again…
This week, I’ve been on a When Harry Met Sally kick. I’ve turned it on just about every time I’ve sat down to work, which means, I’ve watched it all the way through four times. Here are just a few of my favorite things about this movie (feel free to comment with your own!!)…
1: Harry Connick Jr.’s music throughout
2: Meg Ryan’s hair
3: The leaves in New York
4: The snow in New York
5. All the Casablanca quotes
6: Billy Crystal’s face during that scene
7: The interviews with the older, married couples
8: The last interview
9: Everything is “on the side”
Oh goodness…I’m actually watching it again right now. Love. This. Movie.
Okay, so I’ve worn this navy dress twice since we’ve been home from China…and I love it! Hurry though because not all sizes are available. I bought it in navy in an XS but it comes in black and a wine color too. I wore it to church once and Andrew’s awards banquet in Missouri too. I really love it!
Hey mamas of littles, are you guys watching Spookley the Square Pumpkin? I’ve blogged about this Halloween show before, but I’m doing it again because I get to watch it through the eyes of Ashby and Madeley now. It’s on TV a lot right now (check your listings) and I’m sure it’s on demand and online too. It’s this sweet little cartoon about a pumpkin that’s different and the moral of the story is that it’s okay to be different. I love when my kids hear that :). Random favorite, but since my kiddos have watched it several times this month, I thought I’d throw it out there again. I found it years ago when Kensington and Smith were little and now, we’re watching it again. I love sweet holiday shows :).
And speaking of Halloween…
…today, I’m sharing all of my favorite Halloween treats! Friends…it’s almost here!! #icantbelieveit #wherehasoctobergone
And my final favorite this Friday…
…my new jeans. I pretty much wear jeans every single day of my life, so I’m always looking for a cute AND COMFY pair. I just bought these jeans that are slightly distressed and I could not love them more. Friends, they have just the right amount of stretch which I must have because…ain’t no one want to sit around in tight pants all day. #amen
And…I just got my new black dress back there but it is the fall/winter version of the tank dress that you’ve seen me wear 250 times already. It comes in two colors and is so stinkin’ flattering. I’ll wear it soon and post a pic.
Three cheers for cute distressed jeans!
And…since we’re on jeans, these are my staples…
I know you guys have seen me in these jeans approximately 5 billion times…but it’s what I wear every day.
Okay, those are my favorite things this week. This weekend, we’re celebrating a little girl’s second birthday! I mean…how fun is that?! I wasn’t sure if we would be with her on her second birthday, so this is definitely something to celebrate!
