Friday Favorites 10.10.14

Happy Friday!

It is a somewhat exciting morning at the Newman house today. We officially wrapped up the end of our first quarter. I am so happy that 1 out of 4 is complete, but we still have 3 more (27 weeks, 108 days, and approx 540 hours left... but who's counting). Although I do feel optimistic that with all of falls distractions and the holidays soon approaching this next quarter will be over before we know it!

Now how about this week Friday Picks. 

{ONE} Girls Night, TONIGHT

So excited to be getting in some more girl time this weekend. A night out with friends is going to be awesome. 

{TWO} Pumpkin Sugar Cookies With Maple Frosting

These cookies are legit guys. I spent almost my entire day yesterday trying not to polish off the last dozen. I think they may just be the perfect fall cookie.

I need to make more, soon. 

{THREE} Bass Pro Half Marathon

So I am running a half marathon in 3 weeks and 2 days.

 Eeeekkk!!! It still feels like I just finished my first one. I am starting to get a bit nervous. I was feeling completely fine and excited until last week when I had a run that was comparable to an EPIC failure. Seriously, my worst run ever. That definitely gave me a reality check that running isn't always easy. But I know that bad runs just happen. My training this week has been back to normal and I am just about as ready as I am going to be.

{FOUR} What Her Hair Says

Courtney from Shiraz In My Sippy Cup posted this on Facebook the other day and I could not get over how spot on this is.

What do you think girl moms?

{FIVE} Bible Study

This week I started a new Bible study on The Sermon On The Mount. 10 weeks of dissecting and diving into 3 chapters of the bible that are PACKED with so much information. I am really excited about this study.

Jen Wilkin has so many great Bible studies! If you are ever looking for a study check her out!

Have an awesome weekend!

I will see you back here on Monday.

  3. I love how you have a countdown til the end of school. Even homeschoolers are excited for summer vacation :) Happy Friday!

  4. HA the hair thing! I like the one that looks like tinkerbell...and oh hey that is me always. I always just shove my hair up in a messy whatever before I go get Aria...because I cannot change a diaper with my hair down, and then the rest of the day gets started and it is nap time before I remember I have yet to comb my dang hair. I always look so lovely.

  5. Congrats on the half marathon! That's pretty awesome--and good luck on the next one!

    Have a wonderful weekend.
