Favorite Things

So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees. 
Mark out a straight path for your feet 
so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong.  
- Hebrews 12:12-13

While last week's chemo recovery took me all the way back around to this week's treatment, this week's recovery has been a different story with minimal side effects. Hurray!

So because it's been an uneventful week, how about a few favorite things? I'll share mine; you share yours.


I discovered Jess Frank via Shannan Martin's blog, and I want these curtains in black (fabric designed by Jess Frank) for my living/dining area in the worst way. I think they are just made for my house. And Her colorful floral canvases speak to me. Just beautiful!

I have never watched YouTube videos in my life (except for the occasional carpool karaoke or Tonight Show), but I have been obsessed with makeup tutorials these past few weeks. Like staying up until all hours of the night watching tutorials that tell me what kind of anti-aging products I should be using to get rid of the ever-increasing and ever-present fine lines and wrinkles that are showing up at an alarming rate around my eyes and mouth. I did not know that 41 was going to hit my face so hard! I feel incredibly embarrassed to give you a few YouTube regulars: Tati, Sazan Hendrix, HotandFlashy, Emilynoel83 and many more. 

The Kurafuchi Etsy shop sells the most adorable petite jewelry. And by petite, I mean incredibly teeny tiny. These necklaces would be the perfect size for a little girl. Or a short adult with a short neck (me!). They are the perfect size to fit neatly in the small space between the top of a t-shirt and the base of the neck. These are the two I have: gold pineapple and minimalist silver delicate bead necklace.

Our Friday morning Bible Study has been such a blessing. It is a wonderful, motivating, precious thing to gather with a group of women who have a heart for God. To share blessings and burdens. I think groups like this don't come along often, and I'm so grateful to be a part of this one. Tonight, we're bringing our families into the mix and sharing a meal.

Jeni's had a flash sale on half/price pints and we might have picked up a few for rough days. Y.U.M.


I discovered Essie gel couture polish this fall and I kind of laughed when I realized this week that I have a clear preference for all shades of purple. Save your Ulta coupons for this polish because it's a little pricier than traditional bottles.

I have wondered how the Essie polish is, that is one of my favorite regular brands. I have recently discovered Julep polish thanks to Amazon Beauty Box. I heard Sazan on The Happy Hour this week and couldn't remember is she was on your list. Can't believe how tall Camden is!

I need to be better about polishing my nails! I love your colors... while I'm not necessarily a purple person in my everyday life... I am when it comes to nail colors! If you see any YouTube tutorials about getting rid of stubborn forehead wrinkles... let me know! (Or uneven skin tone. 41 has been hard here too...)

And those photos are fabulous!
