Friday Favorites 1/27

Didn’t have a FF last week due the the snopocalypse and this has been a slow week, so only a few to share…but I have a survey coming up later that has some fun stuff in it too so all together…good times.

Favorite salad this week:

Thai cruch salad from CPK (California Pizza Kitchen) In the words of Rachel Ray, YUM-O!

Favorite new salad dressing: (I am detecting a theme here…)

You have to REALLY like cilantro to like this, b/c it basically makes your whole salad taste like cilantro which is A-OK in my book.

Favorite guilty pleasure:

I think these went away for a while and they are making them again? I feel like I didnt see them in the store in For.Ev.Er and then all of a sudden, like a beautiful gift from God, they were there staring at me from the frozen food aisle of Wally World. I think there was even a light beaming on them. Ok maybe not but that is what it seemed like at the time.

Favorite blogger: 

Kristen from Confessions of a (not so domesticated) newlywed. She posts helpful information, great recipes and just seems like an overall really cool gal. I always look forward to her posts!

Favorite way to end the day after a REALLY hard day at work:

Kyle even joined in since he had such a hard day at school.

J/K. He had some cran/grape juice and got a big kick out of the fact that it was the exact same color as our Mimbres Red. So he haaaad to go get a fancy glass so he could be fancy like us. Funny kid.

Favorite thing I read in an email:

Each and every one of us was born with a nature that loves to rebel and feed a natural “bent” toward selfish, wrong choices. However, when we come to Christ, we receive a new nature that naturally desires to obey God. The result is internal civil war. The Apostle Paul struggled with sin just like we do today. In his letter to the church at Rome, Paul describes his frustration with his own sin: “I don’t understand myself at all, for I really want to do what is right, but I don’t do it.  Instead, I do the very thing I hate” (Romans 7:15, NLT). Sound familiar? I will never forget the first time I read those ardent words written by this zealous man of God. I was so relieved! It sometimes seems as if I am the only believer engaged in major battles with sin. Paul’s words, however, assure me that I am not in this battle alone. Neither are you, girlfriend. The reality is that as long as we live in this broken and fallen world, our sinful nature and our God nature will constantly be at war.

This was from a daily newsletter that I get and it really spoke to me and provided me comfort.

Favorite dog pic:

Chloe decided to join me again for some evening work I had to get caught up on. She is ON the dining room table, ON my laptop bag. NO IDEA how she got situated there. 😉
