Friday Favorites

August 11, 2017

Happy Friday friends! I know it’s been a hot minute since our last post, but summertime at home with all these kids is a little cray cray. Plus Hannah had vacation one week, and then Courtney had a family vacation the following week. Even though the blog stays quiet occasionally, you can still find us hanging out over on Instagram most days.

We wanted to end the week on a happy note, so today we are sharing a few of our collective Friday Favorite things! As usual we are linking up with ErikaAndrea and Narci so go check them out too!

Covered Bracelet Stack Giveaway

We teamed up with Covered. for a really fun giveaway this week! Covered. specializes in trendy, handmade jewelry, where classy meets unique! Owner and designer, Colby Garrison, chose to begin Covered. in 2013 when she felt the Lord calling her to use jewelry making as a ministry. Each time a Covered. item is ordered, the design and customer are specifically “covered” in prayer. Covered.’s hope is that women will feel beautiful while wearing each unique design, but ultimately find her true identity and satisfaction in the woman God created her to be. Colby makes absolutely BEAUTIFUL pieces, and we are so excited that she wanted to give one to a lucky follower of ours (we are also a little jealous because we want ALL of the Covered. things)! If you’re interested in entering the giveaway, simply go to our Instagram and follow the instructions on the post. The winner will receive a Covered. bracelet stack and a $25 Target gift card! Until then, check out all of the pretty things on her website(Giveaway is open until 9 PM eastern tonight {Friday} and the winner will be posted to our Instagram on Saturday.)

Boersma Bags

We are all about supporting mom-owned businesses, and Boersma Bags is one of our favorites!  Boersma Bags sells a line of functional cooler tote bags that are perfect for all of your last minute summer plans, grocery trips, tailgating this football season, picnics, etc. Hannah and I both have the large tote and it is so spacious and holds a lot; it comes on all of my Costco runs. Boersma Bags offers several sizes and prints, and will monogram your cooler for you as well! Through August 21st, they are offering Cold Coffee, Hot Mess followers 20% off of their purchase with code coldcoffee20. Go check them out, we are sure you’ll love them too!

You Are Free: Be Who You Already Are

Courtney and I are actually both reading this book right now with a few other girls. We are only three chapters in, but are both already singing its praises. First of all, the cover is gorgeous (real talk, we know this is important sometimes ha!). Christ doesn’t say you can be or may be or will be free. He says you are free. Dare you believe it?” I am excited to learn more about my worth and living in the freedom of WHO I AM, not based on what I do or what others may say. It’s so easy to compare and struggle with believing things about ourselves that just are not true. We all need these reminders about who God says we are. (Amazon affiliate link)

Prayer Journal

I just ordered this prayer journal from Val Marie Paper. I have FINALLY gotten back on track with having intentional “quiet time” – reading my Bible and some personal development books and journaling. I really love the layout of this journal to help me be more intentional in my communication with God and more intentionally thinking about the people in my life and community (can you tell my focus word right now is “intentional”??!). The prompts included in each month are spot on, including a section for answered prayers and scriptures I want to focus on each month.

The pre-orders just started for the 2018 journal! They’re on sale for $40 until August 22, so go go go!

That’s it for this week! What are some things your are loving right now? Let us know in the comments! And I promise we will be back here on the blog more regularly SOON! So if you have any things you’d love to hear from us about, let us know in the comments or shoot us an email! xoxo
