5 Favorites in July

friday faves



1. this song has been on repeat for the past 2 weeks. If you have 99 cents to spare, I highly suggest using it to buy this track, go read the words from this site, and worship Jesus.

Be Our God

2. a friend sent me this topcoat a while ago and it has made painting my fingernails actually feasible because it doesn’t take a year and 3 months to dry like other topcoats.

out the door

3. I’m re-reading this book with a book study group and remembering why I love it so much. Convicting to me as a person and as a mom.

Dont Make Me Count to 3

4. these guys right here. they’re sweet & tart at the same time. my husband got me some for my birthday. loooooooooooove them. if you’re looking for a good snack solution, check these out & join me in my addiction.

dried cherries

5. I was pretty bummed when I found out Google Reader was closing up shop. But then I found bloglovin’ and I love it waaaaay better than Google Reader. 3 reasons:

  1. I can view all the latest posts from my fave blogs {here’s a list!} in 1 window.
  2. I see the posts exactly as they look on the site! Much better than reading it via email imho.
  3. I can comment right there and then click over to the next post from a different blog. <— this is by far the biggest reason I love it!!

If you’re still looking for a google reader replacement, check out Bloglovin’! And don’t forget to follow me while you’re there!


That’s it for me! What have you been loving lately?

    I didn’t know Matt and Christy had a new CD out. Sounds beautiful.
    And I added the topcoat to my amazon cart.
    You know my undying love for cherries. 🙂 I’m out of dried, but Joel bought some fresh ones for me. Mmmm!!!
    And I’m gonna read DMMCtT again. It’s been on my read again list, but this bumped it up in priority.
    Just added bloglovin. In all the preJuly reminders I did nothing. And I only visited your blog really. And got there through fb. Feel loved? You should.
    Btw, I really like your Friday faves. And monthly summaries. I’ve bought earrings and CDs, read books, tried recipes, and other things I’m sure I don’t remember. Thanks!

    You’re the one who got me started on dried cherries! Yum. Just ate some yesterday after a bike ride. 🙂 And thanks for being awesome and nice and loyal all at the same time. I shall give you the prize for awesomest fan ever. 😀
