5 on Friday & MORE!

Happy Friday, y'all! I hope this week has been smooth sailing and that you are looking forward to the weekend! I was just thinking this morning about how fast October has gone by and how we only have TWO months left of 2013. Is it just me or has this year (along with every other year) gone by extremely fast? To me, this makes me feel like I need to start doing a better job at living in the moment instead of trying to plan so much for the future. I feel that if I start doing a better job at that, I won't feel that "time is slipping out of my hands" as much. I'll keep you all updated on how this goes :)

One thing I do look forward to every week are all the fun Friday link-ups that I participate in! So without further ado...enjoy my 5 on Friday (and MORE) and have a great rest of the day sweet friends and I can't wait to catch back up with you guys on Monday.

I would like to say THANK YOU Becky over at A Girl and Her Sparkles for nominating me for the Liebster award! I am going to save this award to talk about next week so I can let it have it's own blog post.

CharlotteONE. If you live in the Charlotte area, are in your 20's-30's and looking to get connected, make a difference or find your purpose, then you should check out CharlotteONE.
Before this past Tuesday when my LifeGroup went to CharlotteONE, I had never heard of it. I had no idea what to expect but was excited to experience something "new". Basically, it is a city wide worship gathering that is a collaboration of around 50 local churches that meet on Tuesdays throughout the year, coming together as ONE to worship God and hear stories of others. When we went, they were finishing up the last of the Ransom Series, talking about personal transformation and showing ways that God has worked wonders in individuals lives. I personally feel CharlotteONE is great for new believers, for those who are new to the Christian faith, or just want more worship during the week! The music was fantastic, the prayers powerful and the people so warm and welcoming. I hope to be able to go again in the future and experience it a few more times.

 I get to go spend the weekend in Columbia, SC visiting one of my best friends, Emily!! I am so excited to have a weekend just the two of us, catching up on life, laughing over recent events, checking out Columbia and going to Em's favorite "spots". I've known this gal for YEARS and our friendship has only grown over the years and I am so thankful for her and excited to see her in mere hours.
Ever since Mason over at Mason...Like The Jar blogged about the movie About Time, I have been counting down the days until I can go see it in theater! I adore Rachel McAdams and the story line is right up my alley. 
One of my favorite magazines is redbook. My subscription just ran out but since my birthday is only 32 days away, Will went ahead and got me another year as an early present! Talk about making me one happy girl! :) I love the articles, photographs and pretty much everything in this magazine. Always on my coffee table. So excited for another year as a dedicated redbook reader!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I will usually respond back to you via email (not here on the blog)...It's easier for me that way and hopefully it sparks a conversation for us! It makes me giddy that you're here and took the time to leave me a comment :)
