Gotta get down on Friday...

You're welcome for getting that Rebecca Black song stuck in your head.

I'm so glad this week is over! I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to a whole week off of work!

Favorite Song:
I heard this on the radio yesterday and it just really resonated with me. I've heard it before but sometimes songs just hit you in a certain way that they haven't before. I love what it says about how powerful words are, they can tear down or they can build up. They can make someone feel loved and important, or they can make them feel worthless. And how important it is to speak life and truth, to point people towards God and His love for them in everything I say and do. I know I don't always do that, but it truly is my desire.

Favorite Food:
Pumpkin oatmeal cookies! These were so good, I think they might be my new favorite pumpkin cookie. A lot of the pumpkin cookies I have made are more of a cakey texture, which I like pretty well, but sometimes you just want a chewier cookie texture, and these deliver! And the maple glaze just take them to the next level! Recipe here.

Favorite Workout:
Upper Fix- I felt really strong on upper body this week, which is big for me because upper body is probably my weakest area. I still can't do very many real push-ups, but I'm getting there! And my planks feel really strong, as well as my chest presses and hammer curls.

Sun's out, Guns out

Favorite "purchase":
I got it for (practically) free, so I don't know if it counts as a purchase, but I got to try a Julep Maven box this week and I LOVE the colors they sent! More on that in another post, but suffice it to say it was a great little mid-week pick me up to get this in the mail!

Favorite Funnies:

Children of the 80's and 90's will get this:

You know you've been there, don't lie:
