Today I thought I’d do a random post of a few things that I am enjoying, in recent days. Some of these things fuel my pursuit of greatness and some are just plain frivolous or fun! I am all about sharing great finds with others and I believe we can glean much from each other, even if some of those things are just some extra fun things, that may just make your smile a little bigger on any given day! These are in no particular order, but they are all some of my current favorite things…
May favorite drinks, other than water, is a cup of decaf coffee with this Salted Caramel Creamer. It’s delicious and, although I don’t have coffee everyday, I do enjoy a sweet cup and the “Ahhhh” feeling that comes with it for me! I also love my Complete Shake. I have a few different ways I enjoy it, but for a quick snack, I mix it in my fabulous shaker bottle with coconut water. It’s also very refreshing, after a great workout (you know, the kind that leaves you shaking all over and crawling to the refrigerator for some nourishment).
I am probably late to this “game”, but one thing that I recently started enjoying is audible books. I have been on tour with my husband some over the last few weeks, and due to the fact that I get motion sickness, I am extremely limited on what I can accomplish while the bus is moving. I have really loved being able to pop in my earbuds and listen to great books, like “How to Win Friends and Influence People”. I love learning, growing, and becoming better, especially as a wife, mom, friend, and leader. This is a great book. Check it out, if you haven’t read it. If you’re like I was and never tried audible, this is a must! Seriously, you can clean your house, cook dinner, ride on a tour bus (with your eyes on the road), or unwind at the end of a day, while you listen to the book from your phone, Ipad, or computer! I’m a new fan!
I am still reading regular books, and my favorite right now is Moving Mountains. This is a great book, recommended to me by my sister. It is about praying with passion, confidence, and authority. It’s challenged me in my own prayer journey and I have a post coming up in just a few days, where I will share an exciting answer to a long time prayer that God gave me recently! If you like to read and you’re looking for a great book to add to your reading list, this is a great choice.
Another thing that I enjoy, that is much more frivolous, is my face scrub, night serum, and lip serum. I can’t say these help in my pursuit of greatness, but they sure make my face feel great! I have a precious friend, Tori, that helps me, and I love that it can be so customized, for each person. You can explore it HERE!
On a parenting note, Circle by Disney is AMAZING! I was skeptical and waited a little while before making the purchase, but I am loving it!!!!! I can control the wifi throughout my house, as well as, the content viewed by each person in my home. Each child has his/her own settings, including time limits, bedtimes, and safety features. I can control it all from my phone! Did I say this is AMAZING? I just got it this month, but I, seriously, love it! If you have preteen or teenage kids, this is a must!
One more thing that makes me smile is my youngest sister’s blog. She has such a way with words. She encourages her readers in the stuff that matters, while sharing the simple things in everyday life. Whether you need encouragement in life, motivation for fitness, you have an infinity for cupcakes (or anything sweet), or you just like reading excellent material, you’ll want to start following CupcakesnCrunches!
This was fun and I hope you enjoyed browsing and exploring some of my favorite things! My other favorite things will have to wait for another post. Do you have a few favorite things in your life right now that fuel your journey or just add some fun to your life?
