Friday's Favorite Five #4

Dare I say, Hey gatherers!!!!! I know this is your greeting Jessica, but it's just so cute - I can't resist!!!  Our apologies for leaving you hanging last Friday - but as you know last week ended in a very hectic and crazy manner.....we hope that you'll forgive us!!!  We threw around the idea of having a top ten this week to make up for the loss.  But we figured it may be overkill!!!!

Anyway, I don't want to stall you any longer, so without further delay I give you................................................


Number 1 CRAFT:

These spoke to me right away, since I have somewhat of an endless supply of eggs around here (thanks to my 50 some hens running around the backyard)  There are so many things that you can do with eggs, go HERE to check out this any many more ideas!!!

Number 2 MUSIC:

I have nothing against Matt Redman, but I am so sad that I couldn't find this recorded by Shane and Shane.  They shared this in worship this past weekend and it blew my socks off!  I felt that it spoke to me right where I am after coming through this past year "Standing on this mountaintop looking just how far we've come, knowing that with every step, you were with us"  I kid you not, I cried like a snotty three year old, except it wasn't a temper tantrum!!!

Number 3 BLOG/OTHER:
*a report on this post  I made the eye make up remover and I'm quite pleased with it!! 

This would fall under other: causes.  As you may or may not know I've been promoting this water for the past week.  Last Wednesday the voting started for the WalMart "Get on the Shelf" contest.  HK water is doing pretty well so far, but if you haven't stopped by their website to vote, please do so now www.humankindwater.org it will take you to the voting link, you can vote through the website and texting.  Please, encourage your friends to do the same <3


Jessica gave me this verse to share.  What a beautiful promise <3

Number 5 RECIPE (I know, I changed it from quote):

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
2 servings

*2/3 bananas sliced & forzen (they work better that way and when they start to go bad you can do a whole bunch of them and throw them in the freezer for when you're ready for your smoothies)
*1/4 cup oats
*1/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup milk

**Put oats in blender and chop until powdery
**Add remaining ingredients and blend until there are no more chunks
**Optional garnish with banana slices


Thanks so much for sticking with us!!!  Can I encourage you to leave us a comment.  Not that we feel the need to feed our egos, but we are words of affirmation girls and your thoughts mean a ton to us <3  Thanks and God bless!!!

<3 Lorraine and Jessica


  1. I've been waiting ALL day for this. I really missed the list last week, but totally understand you had some other priorities. Loved the egg craft, we used to do that when I was younger with the wax. The smoothie sounds like the one I drink, I just add honey and frozen strawberries. Have a great weekend!

  2. Hey Anonymous!!! Thanks so so so much for your comment!!! I think that our hearts literally skip a beat when we see a commment <3 Your smoothie sounds delish!!! We may just have to try that out!!!

    *I want to clarify the recipe for that, it's 2 - 3 bananas, not two thirds. My hubby just pointed that out to me!!! Sorry for the mistake.

  3. 1. I want to make those eggs with you
    2. I want you to make me one of those shakes
    3. I love you guys
