I typically wouldn't post a commercial, but every time I see this one I can't stop smiling. I like how ridiculous each of these athletes are. Hope you can enjoy it too.

doggy bling

This is my sweet girl Biscotti… in her favorite pose. I ordered her this new collar, that she is wearing, and I had to share the website for all you dog lovers out there. After many trips to different pet stores, I said, “forget this I can’t find anything I like”! So, I did the online search, and found this store on Etsy. Now, don’t hate on the name of the store, because their collars and leashes are super cute (I found 5 different ones I wanted to buy) it’s called: Big Doggy Bling. Check them out for yourself, and look at how much Biscotti loves hers!
(Retro Plumes is the name of this pattern.)

i heart

Happy V-day! Oh the day of love. There are a few things that I really do just love. I figured that I would just share some of the things that I really am… just “loving” right now. This is totally excluding the obvious things… Jesus, my family, crushed ice, 70 degree weather, running, or even a great concert. You get where I’m going. So here are my top 5 things that I truly am loving right now.

1-Aaron got me these Toms for Christmas. They are currently on my feet, because it’s 70 degrees!
2-Garlic Expressions Salad Dressing. Ok, for real, this salad dressing is awesome. You can only find it in the produce section at your grocery store. One of my dear friends/YoungLife girls has this as a staple at her house. It will change salad for you... and you probably won't be kissing anyone afterwards!

3-I love me a hair accessory. Now, I don't own these...but oh how I love them. I have my eye on you Brocco Bobbies from Anthropologie.
4-Smashed Sweet Potatoes. I mean I had to give a recipe. I made these up, but I think you'll really enjoy them.

Smashed Sweet Potatoes
4 Sweet Potatoes (washed & cooked—fastest microwave)

1 ½ TBS Cinnamon
2 TBS Brown Sugar
Dash of Nutmeg
Dash of Thyme
¼- ½ c of OJ
2 Tsp. Maple Syrup
2 TBS Butter

I left the skins on and cut the ends off of the potatoes (this is all to your taste). In bowl mash the potatoes and add the remaining ingredients. You may want to serve this with extra butter and brown sugar on the side if someone wants to add a little extra.
5-The song "Beautiful Exchange" by Hillsong. Continues to rock my world everytime I hear it. For a few weeks now, I have had to play it at some point during my runs. I have been a hot mess singing it, and I just can't get enough of how powerful the lyrics are. You should really listen to it if you haven't heard it. It will be a wonderful break of 10 minutes of worship that you'll be thankful you took.

A great way to end my "loves"... 1John3:18-19 "My dear children, let's not just talk about love; let's practice real love. This is the only way we'll know we're living truly, living in God's reality." -The Message

Happy Hearts Day.

I have been a really bad blogger lately, but I have honestly had so much going on that I have not had time. So, I came across this, and they remind me of Nickle Creek with a twist. I think you'll really enjoy their sound. They are really talented (your welcome)! Check Churchill out here. Let me know what you think!
