Friday Favorites 1/22/21

Friday, January 22, 2021

It's Friday once again and that means it is time to link up with Andrea & Erika for Friday Favorites!

Mic had to make a quick trip out of state over the weekend, so that meant X and I were having a mom/son weekend.
Of course he had soccer practice Friday night and Saturday afternoon. 
We met my dad and stepmom for a quick bite to eat,
made a Target run,
picked up X's favorite Dunkin Donuts on Sunday morning,
ordered pizza,
and watched football.
He also finished up a timeline of his life for school 😍

On #TheRealBuild this week we covered all things flooring.
Yes, we actually talked about flooring early on but most of us didn't have a piece of flooring down yet ;)
This time around you can see what we picked actually installed :)
Head to my Instagram story highlights to see more of our flooring, or comment below if you want any further details on the images below.

What I wore Wednesday...was a new sweater I recently ordered from Amazon.
It is super lightweight, waffle knit, and can easily be tucked in too!
I picked up the gray and navy, but there are 13 colors to choose from :)

I shared some things that are keeping me amused this month on the blog this week if you missed it.
The biggest one...

I have tried off and on for the last couple of years to read through the Bible (I never have before), but I always get side tracked and don't finish.
I am following along with the daily readings in the Bible app and listening to the podcast each day.
I don't feel overwhelmed at all!
And I am really enjoying what I am reading and hearing :)

I asked some polls on Instagram about a new monthly giveaway I am kicking off this month.
Make sure to check out my Instagram page/stories for details soon on how you can enter!

I gave into the hype on my recent grocery trip and picked up the Safe + Fair granola in Honeycrisp Apple Pie and Key Lime Pie.
Oh my goodness!
I have only tried the apple so far, but it was delicious!!!
And no, I don't have a code or partnership with them....but I wouldn't mind it now ;)

And that my friends is it for the week!
I have a weekend full of soccer practices and a soccer game ahead of me.
Thankfully, all I have to do is watch ;)
And then watching football on Sunday!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Amuse Me - 3 Things I'm Loving Lately

Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Today I wanted to share just some things that I am loving lately in case you wanted to give them a try :)

1. The Bible Recap & Daily Audio Bible

About 3-4 years ago I purchased a book that I could read the Bible in one year.
I started off good, but life got in the way and I didn't make it very far.
So I was determined to find a way to do it this year.
I looked up podcasts to see if there was a way to listen and learn.
First, I found Daily Audio Bible and I really enjoy it!
It covers multiple sections of the Bible a day.
But then an online friend asked if anyone wanted to join her in reading the Bible by using The Bible Recap.
I decided to jump on board!
So I'm reading the daily readings in the Bible app on my phone and then listening to the corresponding podcast for The Bible Recap.
I am also continuing to listen to Daily Audio Bible as well.
There is some crossover here and there which is nice for someone like me who has never read the Bible before.
Hearing things more than once allows it to sink in a bit more :)
Are you reading and following along with The Bible Recap?

2. Made For This Podcast by Jennie Allen

I have the book Get Out Of Your Head by Jennie Allen, but I don't get a lot of time these days to sit down and read.
So I decided to look her up and see if there was a podcast I could listen to.
First of all, I love listening to the actual author read a book or just "talk" to me.
While the Made For This Podcast isn't her reading the book, there is some similarities.
I just started listening to it this week, but I'm hooked!
What are your favorite podcasts to listen to?

3. Red Oaks & Cobra Kai

So I'm late to the game on both of these shows I'm sure, but I'm so glad I decided to hit play.
Red Oaks is a comedy on Prime that takes place in the 80's.
I literally laugh the entire time!
So much is relatable since I was a kid in the 80's.
Now this show isn't for kids, but I definitely think you should give it a shot :)

And after thinking Cobra Kai (Netflix) was a show for kids, I realized after the first episode that it is geared more towards adults.
Or at least the language in the first few episodes is :/
I loved watching Karate Kid as a child, and seeing the main characters back for this show just brings a smile to my face.
Are you or have you watched either of these shows?
I would love to hear what you think!

What are some things that you are loving lately or keep you smiling?
Any good shows I should check out?
Hope you all are having a great Tuesday!

XOXO ~ Vanessa
