Hello, friends! Time to share some my favorite things, eats, entertainment, and event from the month that just wrapped up!
Sometimes it's the little things, like something pretty to drink from. :) I got my new beverage buddy during the Kate Spade Friends & Family sale. At 25% off plus free shipping, I got a great deal! I also used Ebates money I'd earned while bargain shopping so I didn't even have to budget a dime for this water bottle or this...
...My favorite notebook ever!
It's almost too lovely to write in, yet too gorgeous to resist using!
This free app allows you to check out eBooks and audiobooks from your local library. Once you've chosen one (or two, or three) you can read/listen/enjoy on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod for free! While I was sick and not feeling up to focusing on reading a book myself, I really enjoyed resting while authors read their work to me.
I am addicted to these yummy little snack packages! They have become my go to lit'l lunch on a busy day, or quick bite on the go. They come in other varieties as well, each with cheese, nuts, and either raisins or craisins. This particular pack just happens to be my current jam! I love me some sharp cheddar, cashews, and golden raisins. Together they're even better! For only 180 calories I don't think they can be beat!
Dancing with the Stars // Disney Night
This was my favorite night of television in 2015 so far! I enjoyed it so, so much! If you missed it, check out my fave dances of that night here.
Maybelline Color Elixir by Color Sensational Lipcolor // Shade: Rose Redefined
This lip goody came in my Target Spring Beauty Box. I love the shade! A girl can never go wrong by adding a lit'l more pink to her day!
Sailorette fringe scarf // Charming Charlie
The script reads, "A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor."
I picked up this pretty accessory during CC's buy 1 scarf, get 1 free offer. I adore it!
Cadbury Creme Eggs
Of course these tasty treats had to make the list for the month of Easter! I look forward to these all year long! I have one left in my cupboard. Saving it to savor during a special occasion...perhaps to enjoy during an upcoming finale this month? We'll see if it makes it that long! ;)
I saved the best for last...
Celebrating my Risen Savior! // Easter 2015
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 6:23
The highlight of April was celebrating Jesus' victory over sin and death! Apart from the blood He shed, I'd be without hope and destined to pay for my own sins. The Bible clearly tells us that the wages of sin is death and an eternity in Hell, both of which I'm fully deserving of. Yet, God in His amazing lovingkindness made a way for sinners, like myself, to be made right with Him. He humbled Himself to be born a babe, Jesus Christ, and lived a life free of sin (as He alone could, being fully God/fully man). Christ then willingly died on the cross and victoriously rose from the grave three days later! His sinless blood was shed, that all those who repent and place their trust in Him shall be saved!
You see, a human judge wouldn't be considered "good" if he simply let lawbreakers go free without paying their just penalty. How much more this is true of God who is Just and Holy. He would not let lawbreakers go free without payment for breaking God's laws (the 10 commandments) or He'd be corrupt. He is good, and makes certain that justice is indeed served. He is also rich in mercy, so according to His Sovereign plan He sent His son Jesus Christ to pay for our sins! In this perfect plan, He receives all the glory, we are set free as our debt is paid in full, and we have hope eternal through Him!
While celebrating this on Easter Sunday was the highlight of April, it's also what I rejoice in daily! He is unspeakably good!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a beautiful day!
