Five on Friday :: Live From Bed

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm reporting to you sick in bed, but wanted to check in and say hello so let's get to it!


After battling a pesky cold since Christmas I finally went to the doctor yesterday {Don't get mad at me for being stubborn...I kept getting better and fighting it, but this week it took a turn for the worse}.  The doctor seemed concerned at how bad I was wheezing and made me do a breathing treatment in the office before I left.  She made me promise to take it easy until Monday and gave me an antibiotic and a inhaler.  Fun times!

I'm happy to report Jack is doing much better and Jason is hanging in there with a cold.  


I love how many people are coming up with a word or mantra for the year rather than a lot of grandiose resolutions. I've been thinking this week about what mine should be and I have come up with one!

Be Still. This is such a good reminder for me as I'm constantly over-scheduling, saying yes to everything and over-committing. It's good to just be. This can be applied to so many things in my life.

Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God.


This week I've been glued to Shay's blog and Instagram feed.  If you aren't familiar, blogger Shay has been beautifully sharing her family's journey of adopting a 2 year precious baby from China.  She has blogged every day from China about their incredible journey.  I just love seeing the pictures of sweet Ashby.  Every time a new picture is added, my heart actually skips a beat.  Follow her blog here and Instagram @mixandmatchmama

I don't know Shay personally, but I am so proud of her for being so open and transparent.  I know this will encourage others to adopt children that need homes - both locally and internationally.  My mom and I have said forever that we would love to adopt an unwanted Chinese girl at some point.  Now we just need to get Jason on board :)


I missed the Bachelor premiere on Monday. I honestly wasn't going to watch this season - opting for Vanderpump Rules on Bravo, but after reading all of the recaps I want to watch it!

I did watch Parenthood last night. It's so bittersweet since there are only a few episodes left EVER. What will I do without the Bravermans???

I'm also looking forward to the premiere of Girls and the Golden Globes - both this Sunday!


And for a little fun sparkle on your Friday, I'm obsessed with these Kate Spade Glitter Studs.  At only $38, they are such a great buy.  I bought these for my bestie for Christmas this year and she loves them too.  The only problem is that they have been long sold-out.  Nordstrom occasionally has a pair or two onsale online {usually the gold or silver version} probably from a return, but the multi color is almost impossible to find.

I've been stalking the auctions on Ebay, but refuse to pay $100 for them which is what most auctions have ended in.  If anyone sees them, let me know!

Have a great weekend!

Linking up:
