5 THINGS FRIDAY, JANUARY 2018

*this post contains affiliate links.  

I can't wrap my head around the fact that it is already the LAST Friday of JANUARY. I mean we just rang in the new year and now we are already almost a month into 2018. Y'all time is going WAY to fast for my liking.

Well, enough with me ranting about time. I hope you will join myself, StephanieBeth, and Crystal and share 5 things that are currently bringing you JOY! 







O N E: ALEX AND ANI BRACELETS

My growing collection of Alex and Ani bracelets is for sure bringing me lots of JOY! I love looking at them knowing that some of my FAVORITE people have gifted them to me. 

Ben and the kids gave me the Four Leaf Clover. 
Talia gave me the Anchor. 
Leigh Anne started my Alex and Ani collection a couple of years ago with my initial, Since then she has gifted me A Georgia G (I can't find it online), and a Garnet (my birthstone) 



T W O: MY ETSY SHOP

I have so enJOYed getting back to my craft room and growing my Etsy Shop. I have been working really hard on my pictures, updating listings, my SEO's. It takes time but it is slowly coming together. I am honored that a bride has chosen my shop for Bev2go glasses that she will use as place cards and favors. Your wedding day is one of the most memorable days of your life and to know that I am a part of this wedding is pretty darn special to me. 





T H R E E: QUIET TIME

Y'all I have really been making a point to get up early and enJOY my quiet time and coffee. I  mentioned in my Currently post how much I was enJOYing A Simplified Life by Emily Ley. I also picked up her other book Grace Not Perfection. Oh my Goodness. This book is hitting at so many points in my life right now. 

On Wednesday nights in my small group at church we started A Woman who doesn't Quit: 5 Habits from the book of Ruth by Nicki Koziarz. This study could not have come at a better time in my life. God is good like that 😉 I have really enJOYed diving deeper into the Book of Ruth. 



F O U R: BACK ON TRACK

I have been working on eating back on track with my Weight Watchers journey. I lost 1 pound this week and I also joined a gym. I went to 2 classes last week and 5 classes this week. I can't believe that I am going to say this but I actually enJOYed the classes. I have 2 friends that teach/take classes at the gym so that has really helped me. I have been sore but a good sore. 


F I V E: DATE NIGHT

I mentioned in my Hello Monday post that Ben and I were able to squeeze in a date night last weekend. Y'all it was good for our souls. We really enJOYed being able to spend some one on one quality time together. We talked, laughed, ate delicious food, and tasted amazing wine. 


So tell us...What has been bringing you JOY? We can't wait for you to share!! 


Make sure you join us Monday for Hello Monday
