5 on Friday

I don't know what it is that I was so excited about this morning, but it was so easy for me to get up today! Usually I am not a morning person and hit the snooze button on average about four times before rolling out of bed, but not today! So it's easy for me to say (for once first thing in the morning) that I am already feeling good about this Friday and hope that you all are ready to take on whatever today holds :) Plus, we have the weekend to look forward to and Friday link-ups to participate in!

What better way to start your morning then with a daily reading from Jesus Calling Daily Devotional? Today's message really hit home and was all about thankfulness which is something that I sometimes struggle with. My favorite part is when it says "Thankfulness is not some sort of magic formula; it is the language of Love, which enables  you to communicate intimately with Me". It's not always easy to show compassion for others, or to always be kind and courteous. But that's when it's most important to have a thankful heart! Be thankful for every relationship God has given you; both the good and the bad. View everything you go through as a blessing. And don't only go to God with your prayer request...make sure you are also thanking him for life and second chances. 
I went back to Anthropologie on Wednesday and picked up the limited edition mug that I have had my eyes on for over a week and was so excited to take it home with me :) Not only is it monogrammed but it's the perfect size mug AND is in all time favorite! This little beauty has already been used for hot chocolate and will be used regularly this fall/winter!
I get to reunite with these two gals this weekend and can't wait to hug on them and finally catch up! Alyssa is actually moving to Charlotte and Cait is in town for the weekend so it will be fun going out tonight and helping Alyssa look at apartments! Yay!
My Simplified Planner that I ordered is on it's way and I can't wait to get my hands on it so that I can start filling it up and show it to y'all sometime next week! If you are in need of a new planner, I highly recommend one of these! Emily Ley's products are nothing less of perfection.
Look at how adorable these Mr. & Mrs. holiday glasses are from Furbish Studio! These would make the perfect gift for a married couple or for you and your significant other to use during Christmas time! And what's better then being able to take an extra 30% off on all sale items with this code--> SUPERSALE. Now if that doesn't convince you to check out this nifty little website then I don't know what will! (Below are some other fun items I spotted while browsing the website.)
