Five Favorites

Joining with Hallie for...
Five Favorites, hosted at MoxieWife.com

{1} This article about the Aggies.  More than any win or accolade, I love reading a story like this from people who aren't Aggies.  It is a constant reminder of what it means to be an Aggie.

{2} Nancy Tillman Books.

I just bought this one for a baby shower I'm attending this weekend.  They are both beautiful and heartwarming!

{3} I put a picture on Instagram of them last week, and they're still my new favorite...

they have just the perfect chocolate ratio!

{4}This color for my toenails (via The PolishAholic)...

It has taken me a long, long time to venture far from a French manicure on my toes.  But, I'm trying it here and there :)  OPI's Skyfall is a fun one for the Fall!

{5}  In honor of his feast day, one of my favorite quotes:

"It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for
you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you
are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that
will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the
masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your heart your most genuine
choices, the choices that others try to stifle. It is Jesus who stirs in you the
desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the
refusal to allow yourselves to be grounded down by mediocrity, the courage
to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and
society, making the world more human and more fraternal."
Blessed John Paul II

Have a fabulous day, and head on over to Hallie's for other great favorites!


  1. Eat a mini Kit Kat and a mini Reeses cup. At the same time. Mind blown deliciousness.

    Happy Wednesday!


  2. i've got to start a note in Evernotes of all the great quotes from JPII. Thanks for this one.
