Weekend Wrap-Up

This weekend was so necessary for the Hensley5!
We've been kinda crazy around here lately, so a weekend with very little on the agenda spoke to all of our souls!


Earlier in the week, a precious girl from our previous church in Gastonia, NC texted me to let me know that she would be competing in Pigeon Forge for the weekend, and she wanted to know if I could sneak down there to watch her. I couldn't say no to this sweet darling. Her family means so much to my family, so I loaded the kids up while Joe was working to Pigeon Forge.

 Bailey is the beautiful girl in the middle, and these girls danced exceptionally well. We were all so proud of them! 
While we were there, we ran into our favorite Faithweavers director from our church in Gastonia. Ms. Sandy holds a very dear spot in our hearts, and Stephen, especially, had a wonderful time hugging and catching up with Ms. Sandy!

We got home in time to bust it to Carson's baseball ceremony!
 Proud Royal!!
 This boy also got a special award for being a great big brother and best scoreboard operator!!
 Little Priss!!

We had our picnic at the Eastman cabins, and the kids had a BLAST in the creek the entire time!

 This was constantly happening, and it was hilarious. Her boots kept filling up, and she kept huffing and puffing every time she had to dump her boots out!
His stats were incredible this year, and he grew so much as a baseball player! I'm one super proud mama, and I cannot wait for next year!


We all literally stayed in bed until about 11:00 in the morning! It was AMAZING!!
We did get up in time for a late breakfast & a big clean up party!
It's officially on Netflix & on repeat!

After cleaning up for a while, we all got cleaned and ready for a family date night!

 Love this man!!!
 Stephen snapped this picture of my incredibly handsome husband! I'm seriously so proud of his fitness level!
 We had a BLAST!
My precious babies!!

Saturday night Nataleigh and I planned on watching the Miss Tennessee pageant together. Joe had offered to let us have a sweet slumber party, and he slept in Nataleigh's princess bed!
Miss Tennessee Tot was so excited to have girl time with mama!
And we are so excited about the new Miss TN, Caty Davis!


Easy like Sunday morning right?!
Nataleigh & I were running a bit late for church, so she's the only one I grabbed a picture of!
We were supposed to head to Knoxville for pageant practice, but it got cancelled. Naps definitely happened, and we had a precious man in our church get ordained as a deacon. They are seriously some of the best people ever, and our church is so blessed to have them! Carson even cried 'tears of joy' during the ordination!

Our weekend was absolutely wonderfully lazy & totally recharging!
Just what we needed!

Happy Monday, y'all!

Friday Favorites 6.23.2017 {B Edition}

It's Fri-YAY, and it's officially 'dead week' period for the Science Hill Volleyball team. This means that we will have zero contact or practices with any of the girls until July 10, and my family & I are so happy to be 'off' for a few weeks. We have a lot of fun and busyness planned in those couple of weeks, and we cannot wait. 

While I was creating my list of favorites for this week, I noticed that there was one major similarity to all the things...they all started with the letter B!! As a PW {preacher's wife}, we love us some alliteration, so let's get right into it!


This is an every day favorite for my favorite girl. She's been a brand rep for a couple of months now, and she looks forward to that monthly box from One Stop Bow Shop!
Casey and her crew create the most beautiful accessories, and y'all really, really need to check them out!

Current Favorites are the made-to-match Matilda Jane bows!!
Seriously the cutest prints ever!!!!

We signed up for the Monthly Bow box, so we get a collection every month, and they are perfect every month for the season and holidays! Another favorite of mine and Nat's is to stack her bows, and July's box stacks soooooo perfectly!
 Xlarge Grosgrain Ansi Yellow
Medium Firecracker Neon Pink
Large Neon Purple Diamond
Small Tuxedo Neon Green
Large Neon Paisley Print
 XL Ansi Yellow + Neon Pink Firecracker + Neon Paisley
 XL Ansi Yellow + Neon Paisley
 Medium Firecracker + Neon Green Tuxedo
And Nataleigh's favorite from the box because "Sophia would totally wear this one."
Neon Purple Diamond!!


Building on our new bows, Nataleigh is LOVING her new swimsuit!

THIS SWIMSUIT is seriously the cutest thing ever, and it perfectly matches our new bows!!!


My new favorite BREAKFAST
Okay...so this is amazing. 
I add a handful or two of the honey roasted granola to the bowl, and then slice a banana on top of it. Then I pour just a little of the strawberry KEFIR to the bananas and granola, and then enjoy. It's a quick, easy, healthy, and yummy breakfast that keeps me full for so long!!


[Anyone else just yell, 'bingo,' because I totally did]
Sticking to the food trend, Broccoli, is my current jam. If you follow me on Instagram {@britthensley}, then you know that I eat roasted broccoli for either lunch or dinner or both every single day, and I cannot stop! I chuckled last night when I grabbed our dinner at Panda Express, and my hubby confirmed my fear that it was me causing the broccoli shortage!
I keep my broccoli simple. 
Broccoli florets (trimmed) covered in extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper. Then roasted at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. I like my broccoli super crunchy, similar to chips! 


This week's Bible verses of the days!

AMEN, and I say again AMEN!!

These verses ministered to me differently every single day of this week, and I just know that if God has laid them on my heart, then someone out there needs the same encouragement. I want to let you know that I am praying for whatever your situation may be. Turn to Him, and leave it with Him today!

Some non-B favorites from this week would be the posts from earlier! 

Check them out, and we hope y'all have a fabulous weekend full of family, fun, and so much rest!
