Five on Thursday Because Today Is My Friday

Was that blog post title confusing or what? I hope it's cool with you, but I'm going to do a "Five on Friday" type post today (Thursday) because today is my Friday! Yay for a short work week and a looooong weekend because I'm also off Monday too for MLK day. I have a few five things I'm super pumped about right now so let's get this ish started!

Jon and I are leaving in the morning for Charleston, SC (our home away from home)! Jon is running his first 1/2 marathon on Saturday so we are heading down early so he can rest up pre-race. We are also going to be visiting my brother, sister-in-law, niece and new nephew who is only 4 weeks old. I can't wait to get my hands on him!

Maddox's nursery is seriously THIS close to being complete. We are waiting on one stinking shipment coming in next week and then all we have to do is assemble, hang and viola! I know I have teased y'all a lot about it, but seriously in the next few weeks I'll be sharing it! For now I'm just soaking it up all to myself and picturing my sweet baby boy in that crib. #swoon


I am going to take a moment to brag on my sweet hubster. My lack of sleep and ever declining energy would normally leave me feeling behind. That's not the case thanks to Mr. Mills. Dude is killing it lately, completely picking up in all the areas I am lacking. As in keeping up with the laundry, making us dinner and cleaning up afterwards. He even told me to draw a bubble bath and put my feet up the other night. This was all after he spent Saturday cleaning like a mad man. He says he's nesting, I say he's awesome!


I'm a product junkie so when I find something I like, I have to share! These two items were recent purchases from Walgreens and I must say, I'm impressed. Of course I love Revlon lipstick and when I saw Jana from Life Could Be A Dream show off this color I just had to have it! It's the perfect coral! As for the moisturizer, long story short my skin is drying out majorly between the Winter weather and pregnancy. My normal Neutrogena wasn't cutting it so I purchased this with high hopes and it didn't disappoint! Ultra soothing, ultra moisturizing!


The series on John by She Reads Truth has been incredible. I found myself constantly going crazy at how many people questioned Jesus when he was performing miracles right before their eyes, but regardless His patience and love remained. I love starting my mornings with Him and His word, it gives me a chance to start the day grateful rather than stressed. February 2nd they are starting a series on Esther if you are interested in joining!

  7. Ooh I would love to see Charleston pics! It his piqued my interest the past few weeks, I would love to go there. :) I hope you have a great time! Your maternity picture is so cute, I don't know that I had seen that one yet. :) I love coral. it's so pretty! I have a coral lip stain/cheek stain that I love, but I would like to invest in a lipstick in a similar shade this spring. :) I say 'invest' because I have been working to swap all of my products with eco-friendly ones. So they can sometimes be more expensive than the conventional variety. Not always though. :) XO -Alexandra

  8. I've been loving this SRT study too! Can't wait to see the nursery :) Thanks for the product recommendation, I'll be looking for a drugstore moisturizer after I run out and gel ones are what I prefer due to my oily skin. Have the best time this weekend, safe travels!
