Friday Favorites 3.7.14

by Danica on March 7, 2014

Happy Friday!!

a few of my recent favorites…

  • You Are Not Diminished by Others’ Successes (by Annette)
  • The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon  <–are you watching this?!  I’ve watched them all via Hulu – love it, and I’ve never really paid much attention to The Tonight Show before.
  • Wow do I need this reminder.  That whole ‘wishing for Summer’ one?  I find myself focusing on that every day right now, and I need to remember to stop wishing time away.

Love the quote about not waiting for things. I am so guilty of doing that and you look back at the past few years and realize just how fast time goes. It’s kinda scary! I am taking life day by day and wanting it to go by SO slow with Tate. It’s amazing at how fast 6 weeks went by:(

Also love the verse. My favourite verses seem to all be in Philippians, I could read that book over and over again.

This weekend is supposed to be warmish (in the +’s ) so I’m hoping for the fam to get out for a Spring walk:) I think a games night is in the works too. Have a great weekend, Danica!

I’m terrified about how fast time will go with our (someday) babies! I suppose what’s so important though is that you’re CHERISHING those moments! <3
I hope you had a great weekend, Heidi!

1. Installing invisible fence (well I’m watching the hubby and dad do it :) )for our new addition

2. Attending a Friday night dinner with small group from church

3. Registering for baby stuff!

LOVE the verse at the end – it may set the tone for my day and weekend!


4 Danica March 9, 2014 at 9:28 pm

That sounds like such a great weekend!! Registering for baby stuff? That must’ve been a blast – is it all feeling more and more real?! :)


5 Holly @ EatGreatBEGreat March 7, 2014 at 7:31 am

I’ve used honey on my face before and it works great!

This weekend Justin and I will be enjoying the nice weather and going for a walk, I’m baking a carrot cake and we’re celebrating my dad’s birthday on Sunday.

Carrot Cake was what I chose for my bday cake last year :)
Hope you had a fun weekend, Holly!


7 Courtney @ Don't Blink. Just Run. March 7, 2014 at 7:47 am

Some good stuff to check out!

I’ll be running a St. Pat’s race tomorrow, but other than that, I’ll be prepping for the week ahead and trying to get some organizing done around the house.

Have a great weekend!

How did your race go, Courtney?!


9 Courtney @ Don't Blink. Just Run. March 10, 2014 at 5:03 am

It was good. Automatic PR because I walked this same race last year. It was actually my first ever race last year, so it was my first repeat race. Went from 47:16 last year to 37:08 this year!

That’s so awesome that you ran it this year – and you got a great time, too! Congrats!!


11 Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy March 7, 2014 at 8:21 am

Thank you for sharing my post! I hope that you have a great weekend!


12 Danica March 9, 2014 at 9:32 pm

You’re welcome!
And we did get out for a walk today – it was so nice to get some fresh air, even if it was mostly puddle jumping! :)


13 Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl March 7, 2014 at 9:22 am

And now I am super glad that I have a health/unhealthy ;) obsession with sweet potatoes!

They’re one of my favorite foods!!


15 Caitlin March 7, 2014 at 9:34 am

I am totally with you on needing to enjoy where I am/where life is more than wishing things away. Life is too short and precious to do anything less, even when it’s colder/snowier than we would like. Thank you for this reminder, hun! Three things for the weekend: my first 5K tomorrow, pizza night with Joe’s brother and his girlfriend on Saturday, and long run Sunday. Lots of running this weekend :D

17 Caitlin March 10, 2014 at 6:48 am

Really well :) I surpassed the time goal I set for myself, so I was very happy!

21 Alex @ Alex Runs For Food March 7, 2014 at 2:12 pm

yay for friday :) I’ve heard a TON of good things about raw honey! Hope it works for you as a face wash!

I’m going bridesmaid shopping for my cousins wedding, then I’m going to a wedding reception for friends who got married in jamaica and I’m relaxing!! Hopefully the relaxing will happen on sunday along with maybe some cleaning.

Sounds like you had a super fun weekend!! Hope it was great, and that you got at least a little relaxing in there :)


23 Alison @ Anchor in the Stratosphere March 8, 2014 at 11:37 am

Great quote about not wishing things away, very appropriate for this freakishly long winter we’re having! This weekend I am:
1. seeing George Strait and Vince Gill in concert!!
2. recovering today with coffee and blogging
3.trying your interval workout (although now looking at the speeds, it may kill me!) ;)

How was the concert??? Country concerts are the best.


25 Alison @ Anchor in the Stratosphere March 13, 2014 at 8:07 pm

It was awesome! Two superior country legends. :)

I love the quotes (and everything else in this post, apparently, because I now have three new windows open!).
It took me a long time to recognize when I’m wishing my life away. Age helps, I’m sure, but I’ve been better about that lately.
We emailed about this a long time ago… but we are going to start our search for a church family tomorrow morning ~ attending worship at a local church. We need to find a church that is accepting and open. We’ll see!
Also! You got me thinking during the new year about budgeting. I bought the Dave Ramsey book and we are in month 2 of our budgeting and this month we start our debt snowball. After bringing it up at Christmas/New Years while we were in MI (after I read your post) I found out that there were members of my family who had heard of him and had nothing but good things to say. We are IN to this hook-line-and-sinker! Hope it is going well for you! recently posted…Dara’s Strength Workouts ROCK! (so does my kid)My Profile

1 – I love that you’re working on your debt snowball! That’s where we’re at, too. We aren’t following Dave Ramsey’s whole plan to an exact T, but mostly – slowly but surely we’re paying off debt! It’s such a great feeling, isn’t it?!
2 – How did the start of your ‘church hunt’ go today?
