Friday Favorites

I feel like I always start my Friday posts with a statement kinda like this, Does anyone else think this was the longest week ever?   Well, this week did feel super long, I guess the week after Spring Break is supposed to feel that way.  But only 7 more Mondays of school left before a super fun summer.  Can't wait!

Linking up to share some Friday Favorites with lots of fun gals this week!  Happy Friday friends!

Mumford and Sons are coming to NC this summer!  And I am so so so excited!  Fingers are crossed that I can swing tickets today, I am pretty confident that tickets won't be around for long!  I had pretty much talked myself out of trying to go because the concert is on the last week of school, however, after a smart friend shared with me that the concert is actually on the last day of school and the following day is an optional workday...yep, I decided it would have to happen!  Here is a video of their new song, Wolf...

I am always on the lookout for a new show to binge watch on Netflix and when a few of my sweet friends came to visit over Spring Break, they introduced me to a new favorite!  Have you guys watched Damages? It stars Glenn Close, who is amazing and Rose Byrne who played Helen in Bridesmaids.  I am pretty much hooked!  What shows are you binge watching on Netflix these days? 

Lilly for Target....this weekend...that's all!

Lately the desire to be involved in a bible study, small group, community group, whatever you want to call it has been great!  I miss that close connection with people who are studying, worshipping, praying and living life together.  While I don't know what that is going to look like in this season, I am praying that God would open up the opportunity for me to be able to connect with some folks in this way. One bible study I am really looking forward to doing is this new study by Angie Smith.  Seamless is a study of the overarching story of the Bible, helping you see how the pieces are connected into the greater story of Scripture.  Seems like the perfect fit for where I am right now! 

It goes without saying that I have some of the best friends ever, like really ever.  Today I am especially thankful for one of my friends, who now is more like family.  My friend Kristi and I met about 13 years ago when we were both starting as brand new baby teachers.  At an orientation meeting, Kristi approached me and asked if I had any friends here and I said no. Her response is one I will never forget... "Well, Let's be friends."  And from that moment on, she has been a best friend and sister.  

She motivates me to try things I never thought I could do and supports me in those ventures.  Her thoughtful insight and advice are priceless to me and I love the way that she encourages in love and still speaks the truth.  

Her determination to be the best at whatever she does pushes me to want to be a better person.  Our mutual love for the Melting Pot, NKOTB, Scandal and wine have led to so many memories.

We share BFB, Best Friend Brain and can often complete each others thoughts.  Her family loves me like their own and her precious daughters are two of my greatest blessings! Yep, friend, you are such a treasure in my life and today I am especially grateful for you!

Happy weekend friends!
