Five Favorites - Vol. 2

Linking up with Hallie again here

1.  Just got this for my camera...best thing ever!

DSLR Camera Case - Charcoal Grey / black neoprene

2.  These are my new favorite things.  I got a couple and love how they feel and how long they last!

  Belle de Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

3.  I saw this prayer on a blog a few days ago and need to read it daily:

Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves,
When our dreams have come true
Because we have dreamed too little,
When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.
Disturb us, Lord, when
With the abundance of things we possess
We have lost our thirst
For the waters of life;
Having fallen in love with life,
We have ceased to dream of eternity
And in our efforts to build a new earth,
We have allowed our vision
Of the new Heaven to dim.
Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wider seas
Where storms will show your mastery;
Where losing sight of land,
We shall find the stars.
We ask You to push back
The horizons of our hopes;
And to push into the future
In strength, courage, hope, and love.
This we ask in the name of our Captain,
Who is Jesus Christ.
– Sir Francis Drake

4.  Favorite new (to me) magazine.  It celebrates the small, yet important aspects of life.

5.  And, what's a post without a little food?!!  I made these for the kiddos this week (thank you, Becca).  
Pepperoni Roll-Ups Recipe
Instead of crescent rolls, I used Rhodes frozen rolls.  And, I added a piece of turkey lunch meat.  Plus, I found pizza flavored string cheese (really good).  I froze most of them for easy, fast meals.  Win-win.


  1. The magazine looks interesting, I'm going to check that one out. Love the color for the lips. So feminine! :)

    1. You definitely should check it out - it celebrates what so many moms are all about and is beautiful! I can't recommend the NARS more - LOVE it! I just looked at your blog and will be following it. So fun!

  2. Love the prayer. Totally one of my favorites. And my copy of The Everyday came today--excited to read it!


  3. I've always wanted to try Nars products, but never had occasion to. Hummm...maybe now's my chance!
    That prayer is beautiful. I'm copying and pasting for sure. Thank you for sharing that, wow.

    1. You definitely should try it. I just love the feel and how long it lasts. Just read your blog too - I love finding new ones (to me) and following!

  4. I am so hungry right now. I nearly drooled on the computer monitor at the sight of that pizza roll awesomeness.
