Hellllllo out there and happy Friday. I’m still in my PJ’s over here and still taking care of sick kiddos. And now a sick husband. I thought we were on the mend yesterday, but the kids still don’t feel well enough to go to school and now that mean ol’ stomach bug has caught the hubs. I know it could always be worse, but we can’t seem to catch a break these last few weeks and I’m just plain worn out to say the least. I feel unmotivated and not creative in the slightest. I’m doing my best to get by with everything that’s been going on behind the scenes and I feel like my content has kinda sucked. I hate that feeling, but it’s the truth. When crap hits the fan, my work takes a back seat. And to be really honest, lately I’ve felt unsure of what my purpose here is anymore and what I should even be sharing with you guys. I’ve been praying for God to give me direction and guide this journey I’m on because He is truly the one that has been in control the entire time. I always want this space to be in alignment with His purpose for me and my family, but I’m just unsure of some things right now. I’m so sorry to be a Debbie Downer today, but that’s just what is on my heart and I like to keep it real with you guys. I hope that’s ok. Now, after all that malarky, let’s do a quick Friday Five. We just put up some new bamboo shades in the window seat that I’ve been wanting to share:
Aren’t they pretty? I’ve been wanting to add shades to this spot for a while now and I’m so glad we finally did it. They give this window so much more coziness and texture, plus they’ll be great this winter to help keep the heat in. We had to get them custom made for this window and holy cow they are NOT cheap. I ordered them from Select Blinds (these are the Premier Bamboo Shades in the color Maize).
Cozy Finds from Express
I dropped into Express last weekend when I was doing a little “mama alone time” and I snagged a few things. I got two cozy sherpas that I absolutely LOVE. First is this brown zip sweatshirt. It’s super, super warm and very comfortable. It’s a little cropped, so I got the medium. It’s currently on sale too!! See it HERE.
I also got this camo sherpa pullover. This basically feels like wearing a blanket–it’s the coziest thing everrrrrrr! I’m wearing a small here–it’s definitely oversized and runs big. And holy smokes it is SO warm. I know I’m going to be living in this come wintertime. This one is also on sale, see it HERE.
- With everyone sick this week and needing a warm blanket, I realized that I have five of these throw blankets. FIVE. It’s kinda out of control. But they sure did come in handy this week–they’re just so dang cozy and we all love them. It’s the perfect blanket for this time of year!
- I’ve been listening to the Charles Stanley Daily Radio podcast more lately and I forgot how much I love it. Do you guys know Charles Stanley? He’s amazing. I listened to his sermons on the Power of God this week and they were really good.
- One of the most popular things I’ve shared lately has been this Tula skincare kit. My entire morning routine is included in this kit and it’s such a GOOD deal because it comes with full size products. So many of you have scooped it up and I can’t wait to hear what you think. As always my coupon SARAHJOY saves another 20%. See it HERE.
Thank you for stopping in today and continuing to support the blog. It means so much to me! xoxo
