Hooray for Friday Favorites! It’s time once again for all of the internet to share the things that made our week just a little bit better. And to do a little victory dance. And to get the song “My Favorite Things” stuck in our heads. (Sorry.) So here are a few things I am loving lately, as I wrap up a healing kind of week with my fantastic family of four.

ONE

Little Hugs

So, it seems that we’re almost all healed up from our Month of Sickness. Kai got to go to preschool this week, just in time for one last class before Spring break! 🙂 My sweet kiddos bonded a bit more while they were sick. Kai got the hang of reading to his sister and hugging her without tackling or being too rough. (He’s a little too enthusiastic sometimes.) How cute are they??

 

TWO

Kai’s First Time Seeing Cars

My son is almost five, and while he was still getting healthy, Ry grabbed the movie Cars and we sat down and watched it together. We talked a lot about what was happening and what Lightning was learning, and Kai loved it. His favorite part might have been the opening crash scene. 🙂

It’s the little things, am I right?

 

THREE

Chicken Stock + Chili

For the first time in my life, I’m making and using my own chicken stock. And it’s been glorious to not only make chicken soup with it, but to throw some of the stock in all kinds of recipes. I threw a small frozen chunk of stock in my Instant Pot chili, and I think it made it extra delicious!

By the way, the reason I know how to make chicken stock in my IP is because of my friend Lisa. You can follow her chicken stock recipe here, plus read all about the health benefits of homemade stock. It really wowed me!

 

FOUR

My Cute Travel Mug

I’ve been drinking coffee from this insulated mug every single morning since Ry got it for me for Christmas, and I finally realized I should be sharing it here!

My favorite book that I read in 2017 was Love Does by Bob Goff, so I was pretty excited when I saw what was on this mug! It’s covered in gold foil paper airplanes, and it features the quote:

Give away love & grace like you’re made of the stuff.
-Bob Goff

I loooove it.

 

FIVE

Freebie of the Week

I’m starting a new feature here so I can share amazing freebies with all of you! To get us started, I thought I’d share the Psalm 62:1 verse printable I created this week.

My Soul Finds Rest in God Printable

I wrote about resting in God, because oddly enough, that’s what’s been on my heart. (Kidding. God knows I needed to rest more in Him!) Get your dose of biblical rest here.

Next week, and every week after that, check here for some amazing freebies from other bloggers! I reached out to my blogging buddies, and now I have such an impressive list of helpful and inspiring freebies to share with you in the coming weeks. I’m crazy excited about it! (And if you’re a blogger who offers a freebie, just email me with your link so I can feature you.)

Tell me what you’re loving this week. And have a happy Friday!
