Friday's Favorite Five #9

Happy Friday!!!!

1. Craft(s)

I really love these paper medallions.  I love the simplicity, the colors, and the fact that it's just paper!!!!  Really, decorating your home couldn't be any easier these days!!  To find out how to create these little beauties for yourself, head over to here.

2. Music

((sigh))  Harry Connick Jr.
I fell under his spell in the 90's, I had every one of his c.d.'s up to and including "Star Turtle".  After that I felt like he and his music changed.  Sadly, I ended up selling all of those c.d.'s in a yardsale and I am deeply regretful!  I still love his swanky sound, his cheesey lovesongs and that slammin' big band sound that he delivers!!  Before Michael Buble' - we had Harry <3

3. Blog/Other
A friend of mine shared this post the other day and I've been sharing it on our facebook page ever since.  Need a jumpstart in your approach to parenting, or just need to rekindle that love for your child(ren).  You can jump in anytime and be a part of the 10 day parenting challenge.  Rachel has links up for each day of the challenge that has already passed.  Feel free to join in and share your journey with us!!

4. Scripture
"I came so that you may have life and have it more abundantly."
John 10:10
This is a wonderful verse.  How many of us are just trudging through our days, wondering what it's all for?  Jesus came to earth, to save the lost and to give us an abundant life.  The things of this world will never give to us what only Jesus can give.  Think on that today, seek Him in all things and see if this verse doesn't begin to become clearer<3

5. Quote

I found this on Pinterest.....thanks to http://crushculdesac.tumblr.com
Why is it that we feel the need to follow the crowd?  And it seems that even in following the crowd some believe that they are searching for uniqueness.  If everyone around you is doing the same thing, chances are you are not unique in your approach.  We fight so hard to be original, but we're missing it.  Do the hard things, go the opposite way of the masses.  You'll find freedom there - I'm sure of it!
