It's FRIDAY! Can I get an amen? And I'm turning up to class two weeks in a row, #ThankYouVeryMuch.

We spent most of Labor Day weekend in Dallas and, until the morning we left, had the BEST time. We stayed at a beautiful hotel (but I'm not linking to it, for many reasons), enjoyed a day of shopping at the Allen Outlets & the Container Store, ate In & Out Burger and the most delicious hole-in-the-wall, Piggie Pie Pizza, and watched plenty of college football! Unfortunately, someone decided they wanted the purchases we had made and stole them from our vehicle, and the hotel waived it off and acted as though it was a common occurrence. Thankfully Officer Jefferson with the Dallas PD was nice to work with and our credit card company is being helpful so far. Also, the kindness of another person toward me and my business totally made my Sunday morning bearable and reminded me that people are good, and not to let the bad influence my overall outlook. So, while it's been a frustrating week and I no longer have the beautiful JCrew skirt I planned to wear in our Christmas pictures (seriously guys, it was perfect), life goes on, and I'm seeking the good rather than dwelling on the bad.

My first FAVORITE is how God puts things in front of you exactly when you need them. When I started my Bible study Thursday morning, I looked at the verse of the day on my Bibe app - Romans 15:13: "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope." This verse has become my prayer - that my life would look like that verse. While reading that verse, I flipped back a little to Romans 15:5-6, which was the verse of my sorority in college, Sigma Phi Lambda. I am so thankful for my time as a Phi Lamb and for the people in my life who I know because of Phi Lamb, including my sweet "Phamily" and the beautiful ladies below!

Another FAVORITE this week is my discovery of the Wet Brush. Seriously, this thing is a miracle worker! My tangly hair is detangled in just a few brushes without even trying, and it's not ripping my shedding-prone hair out of my head, which is even better. They're less than $10 which makes buying one even better.

My last FAVORITE (not to be mistaken for LEAST favorite!) for today is that I was invited to speak at FAPC's Marketing with Social Media this week! But that's not the best part. Guys, they gave me a #SelfieStick. So far I've failed miserably at taking pictures with it but I'm determined to have a strong selfie game with this new addition. For real, though, it was an honor to be invited to speak about social media and I loved spending part of my day in Stillwater. Now I'm even more excited to watch my FAVORITE team play tomorrow in Boone Pickens Stadium - GO POKES!

Happy weekend!
