Friday Favorites 1.10.14

by Danica on January 10, 2014

Happy Friday!

I was going to ask if everyone survived their first full week back to “normal” after the holidays, but with the intense weather in most places, it was hardly a full week for most people!

It was -40 (F, with the wind factored in) on Sunday night, Monday, and Tuesday morning here, but it’s supposed to be up into the 30s this weekend.  And I promise you, there will be plenty of people out walking/jogging (some even wearing shorts) over the next couple of days.  Does this happy anywhere other than Minnesota?  I, however, will not be sporting a pair of shorts quite yet, but I do plan to get outside – Zida is looong overdue for a walk!


Let’s take a look back on some great things I came across this past week…

what you're body's trying to tell you when you get a craving

  • this:

Joyce Meyer quote

  • she’s the sweetest…this was how Zida was watching me cook dinner last night…patiently waiting!  And let’s take a moment to look at how her legs are kicked back…she sits like that all the time and it completely makes my heart melt.

Three things I’m doing are going on a date with Aaron tonight, having a lunch date with my dad tomorrow, and hopefully undecorating and getting my house all back together. i can’t take the boxes everywhere anymore! Aaron’s off today so I’m hoping he puts a lot of boxes into the attic so they aren’t everywhere in my house anymore lol Happy Friday! Enjoy the warmer temps this weekend :)

Crazy enough…we’re getting snow right now and tomorrow it’s going to be 60 degrees. How crazy is that!?! This weather is all over the place lately!

I pinned that chart last night! It’s so interesting!

Have a great weekend Danica!

That IS crazy weather! You live in New Jersey right? Is it “normal” for the weather to be all over the place like that?
Either way, I hope you got to enjoy the warm temps today!!


9 Holly @ EatGreatBEGreat January 12, 2014 at 7:59 am

Yes I do, and no, it typically isn’t this all over the place. We are getting some warmer temps, so that is a nice change!

After -40, the 30′s must feel really nice! I’m looking forward to warmer weather in TX, too. Maybe 70′s!

LOVE so many of those articles. I’ve seen that “What Your cravings mean” chart floating around before. I think it’s SO interesting and really eye opening. Our bodies are smart!
Sweet Zida…she just wants mama to come play! :-) Have a great weekend!

Our bodies really are so smart aren’t they?! It’s the ‘truly listening and acting accordingly’ that’s sometimes the really tough part :)
Hope you’re having a great weekend, Sarah!

Lots of great stuff here! I, too, loved the prayer of Brittany’s – so thrilled for her.

Three things I’m doing this weekend: 1) Run (done this morning); 2) appetizers & game night with friends tonight; 3) church tomorrow! :)

The 30 degree weather is definitely considered a heat wave over here in South Dakota as well! Plenty of people out running or walking!
