Five for Friday

I can’t believe the entire month of July just slipped through my fingers…without a single FFF post!

I have off today so I am going to be a busy little bee trying to be super productive! Buzz buzz buzz! It’s such a good feeling to ninja-kick your to-do list.

Five Foods!

Clearly we cannot have a FFF post without something from Jessica at How Sweet It Is. I’m obsessed. I am relatively certain I would eat this entire recipe for No-Bake Coconut Cream Goat Cheese Cheesecake all by myself. Sorry Kit.

Did you know that I LOVE French Toast?! We hardly ever have it (mostly because I don’t really keep bread in the house) but when I saw this Baked French Toast in individual ramekins I was sold. Must. Make.

Tis the season for peaches, plums and cherries! This Stone Fruit Salad with Lemon-Lavender Syrup sounds delightful!

I just bought a large container of farro that I’m excited to cook with. This beautifully simple Summer Farro Salad is right up my alley and will be perfect to use up some of my wonderful fresh basil from the garden!

This Enchilada Soup was so fast and easy AND delicious! You have to try it!

Five Links!

Did you hear about this painting purchased for $10 at Goodwill? It turned out to be valued at $15,000! That’s a whole lotta zeros! I think it’s so wonderful for the people who found it…what a blessing!

Check out these incredible satellite images of Earth! Our Creator is just so awesome!

And since we are talking about our Creator…look at these strange fish! Blobfish FTW.

A super disturbing article about the things Victoria’s Secret models do to get those famous figures. It’s a great reminder to be realistic about our body image. I am never going to look like a Victoria’s Secret model…and I’m fine with that! I would much rather eat and be healthy and happy. Only eating meals that will fit in the palm of your hand is not healthy. Sorry I’m not sorry.

And since it’s Olypmics time…how about 9 strange but true stories from the Olympic Marathon! A fun read!


I hope you have a great weekend my friends! We have a busy weekend planned, including a Casting Crowns concert tonight! I know I will be able to relax tonight since I have kicked butt all week!

Thought for the day:

Don’t give up what you want most for what you want now.
