Five Friday Favorites

 201107-Autumn-Happy-Friday

What a busy week it has been! Almost every day has been jam packed, I’m pretty worn out…bring on the weekend! I’m looking forward to it because we have plans to tailgate on Saturday and on Sunday I am going to give myself a break and relax! Hallelujah!

Here’s my favorites from this busy week:”

One//Favorite Verse

“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” – Ephesians 4:32

How wonderful is it that we are wholeheartedly forgiven for all of our sins, mistakes and slip ups in His eyes without any lingering anger or resentment? It is such a gift to receive this unconditional love. This week, I turned to this verse when I faced a situation where I was having a difficult time forgiving someone. Sometimes I don’t want to forgive, sometimes I’m afraid if I forgive someone that they will hurt me in the same way again. Then, I think about how we are constantly forgiven by God, even with the knowledge that we will hurt Him time and time again, it’s inevitable. So I can forgive too, even when it’s hard.

Two//Favorite News EVER

If you haven’t heard yet (which you probably have because all of the fans are shouting from the rooftops), Gilmore Girls is getting a revival on Netflix! *Happy Dance* Oh, how I’ve missed that coffee-drinking, pop-culture spewing, mile-a-minute-talking duo! I created a list of 21 Things Gilmore Girls Taught Me About Adulting in honor of this news.

Three//Favorite Night Out

This week, I got to have a night out with one of my oldest and bestest friends. We don’t get to see each other that often because we live about an hour apart now and have crazy lives so it’s always the best when we make some time to get together! We went on a sushi and mall date and it was so much fun to catch up!

Four//Favorite Contestants on The Voice

I am loving these twins on The Voice, their harmony is just so beautiful. This was definitetly my favorite battle performance. I would so listen to their music if they became a trio!

Five//Favorite Recipes

Even though I’m not sure how I was in the mood to cook so much on a Monday night, I made an awesome meal! I had my Chicken Spinach Alfredo Pizza and for desert I made this Apple-Pear Crisp that I found on Pinterest. The pizza only lasted the night but I had Apple-Pear Crisp for desert all week. I topped it with some vanilla fro-yo, yum!

That’s all of the highlights from my week! Happy Weekending, friends!
