Friday {5} Favorites 4.14.17

Happy Good Friday!
Today I want to really quickly share 5 things I'm loving right now!


Blogging Buddies!!
Last week Erin from Perfectly Port Family messaged me asking for my mailing address. She's an awesome blogger who has quickly become a friend. She's a fellow Christian, mom of 3, and all around awesome mama! She's someone who I've connected with through link-ups & now on Instagram! If you are looking for encouraging posts, then Erin is your girl!!

Her postcard was so timely too. I had mentioned last week that our family was in the middle of making some pretty hefty decisions, and just the knowledge of people across the country praying for us has eased our minds so much. Joe, the kids, and I are so thankful & blessed with praying friends!


New Laundry Stuff
I saw this stuff advertised on Instagram, and I'm a sucker for any new laundry/cleaning products!
If it's new, then I have to at least try it, and I found a coupon!
This is my favorite stuff now!
I love me some Lysol anyways, and they had me when they added it to my favorite household chore stuff!!
It smells so good, and I love just reading 'laundry sanitizer!' 


So my boys introduced me to this, and I may have had a friend not answer a phone call from me because of this app {talking to you Christie}, and then I found slither.io blind bags for the boys' Easter baskets.
I think I'm going to be more excited than they will be to see which skin they get!!
This app is so addictive, and don't just take my word for it!!


I was talking to a friend of mine a few weeks ago about monograms and embroidery, and she recommended this local shop. They accept outside items, and the turn-around time was super fast!
I've shared my weekender bag from Matilda Jane before, but it needed an "H." I never planned on trying to resell this, so I made it all Hensley!! I let the Sweet Lemon pick out the font and color, and she out-did herself. It perfectly matches the butterflies from the inside of the bag.
I also dropped off my brand-new Matilda Jane tote off, and she knocked it out of the park!
The chevron stitching within the monogram is beautiful!!
This bag is waterproof, and it's our new pool bag!!
I dropped it off with the Sweet Lemon because I knew they had worked with these items before, and they were extremely experienced with Matilda Jane. She has 2 small daughters who wear the clothes and accessories too, so I felt my stuff were in safe hands. They turned out so beautifully, and I absolutely LOVE them!


This song.
Blessed Redeemer is one of my favorite songs ever, but it's especially special today. 
Today is the day in which I remember the sacrifice that Christ paid for me. 
God, in all of His infinite wisdom, knew that I would be a sinner. He knew that I would need a Savior, and He knew that MY sin would cause us to be separated for eternity. Yet still, He had a divine, sovereign plan from the beginning. He sent His only Son to bear my sin and my shame, so that I could one day be in fellowship with Him again. I don't and didn't deserve any of this, and that is just simply His Grace.

Today I pray that my actions will direct someone to the Cross, so they too can see their own need for a Savior & submit to their lives to Christ. I pray that my children see Jesus in me & Joseph, and that we share the amazing Redemption story with them. May He get all the glory today and always!
