Friday favorites is a favorite of mine! I love to write these posts! They are so fun! I hope you enjoy some of the things I’ve been enjoying lately!

Friday Favorites-Fri-YAY balloons

Before I begin, I want to share my heartfelt prayers for those in Texas. I pray relief will come soon and everyone can stay safe. What a very difficult time for all Texans. I’m going to continue to look for ways to be able help those effected by the storms, please let me know if you know of any way to do so.

All right it’s Friday!!! I always love Fridays! They are so so good!

We had a fun week going all over the city and experiencing some new adventures!

//1// Heather Chauvin Podcast

I’ve been listening to a new podcast lately. Well, it’s not new by any means but it’s new to me and I LOVE it! There are things that Heather Chauvin has said or shared that have actually changed my way of thinking or have brought great peace to me. She is a rockstar! If you need a little pick me up, check her out!

//2// Meditation BeachBody App

I started using the meditation app on BeachBody it’s called Unstressed and it is AMAZING! Along with Heather’s podcast, meditating every morning has really helped set my day up for a clear mind and has actually helped me to more peacefully react or respond to my sweet 3-year-old Caroline. Because if you’re a mommy you know how crazy life can be with a little toddler around. And the fact that this helps me not lose my mind like all the time then it’s a win for me!

//3// Simple Abundance Journal of Gratitude

Ok, so I’m going to name another thing that’s been helping me bring more peace to my life and that’s my Simple Abundance Journal of Gratitude. I guess I’m on a peacefulness journey lol!

When I wake in the morning after I’ve prayed and read a little I write what I’m thankful for and this helps me to realize how good things are in my little world. It brings me back to the good reality God has given me.

//4// Alejandra TV on YouTube

Along with peacefulness, I’ve been super into doing crafts and getting organized. I’ve been watching Alejandra TV on YouTube often and I LOVE it!

She is so so good in all her organizing. It’s amazing truly how organized she is. You’ve got to watch some of her videos if you’re into that type of stuff!

//5//AquaTots Class

This past week Caroline and I went to the Aquarium and spent the morning there then attended their aquatots class. It was so fun!

I was highly impressed by the program and the fun the kids had.

I wanted to share this with you so you can take the opportunity to look at things around you like the zoo, aquarium, parks, etc. and see if they have any fun events for you and your little to attend.

Alright you guys, I hope you have a wonderful Friday and a beautiful weekend! I will see you back here on Monday!

Praying for you Texas!

    We used to participate in lots of classes through our zoos, museums, and aquariums; most of them were free or only had a nominal fee with membership (which we almost always bought anyway!). That is a huge snake skin.

      We were able to receive a discount too for being members which was great! Yes, it was huge and I was trying my best to not be totally grossed out.

    I love listening to podcasts! That is one of my favorite things to do! I need to purchase a gratitude journal, they are such a great thing to have! What a fun time you guys had at the aquarium!! That snake skin is ginormous! I would definitely be grossed out by having it so close to me!! Have a wonderful day!!

    XO, Abby

      Yes Abby you should totally get a gratitude journal or just start one in a spiral notebook! 🙂 I LOVE podcasts too! What is your favorite? I’m always looking for new ones! And YES that snake was HUGE! It was from a python! I tried sooo very hard to not be totally freaked out so my daughter wouldn’t freak out too!
