Friday Favorites!

Favorite Image from Pinterest.  How fun is this room?!

Happy Friday!  I hope you’ve had the most wonderful week!  Here at Long to Love, we’re always trying to think of fun ways to give the blog a little spice. Yesterday, I had the idea of expanding the Friday links into a broader feature on recent favorites.  So welcome to the first edition of Friday Favorites!

When Bernie and I first started dating, I wanted to know all of his favorite things–food, movies, music, cities–but he’s much more open and diplomatic than I am and doesn’t like limiting his options to one or two things.  He likes it all!  It took a while for me to adjust, but now I simply say something like, “What are three movies that you like a lot?”  It seems to work a bit better than limiting him to favorites.

I, on the other hand, adore having a few favorite things and I get really excited about sharing them with other people.  If I find a new bargain site, I want the world to know!  I also love learning about other people’s favorite things, so I’m hoping we can use this to have some more guests posts too!  Did you know that guest posts are one of my absolute  favorites?  So, without further ado, here are a few favorites from this week:


Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me.  All day long I put my hope in you.  
Psalm 25:5 (NLT)

Great post from Amy Julia Becker on planning for the present.  Also, Amy Julia has a new book coming out!  More on A Good and Perfect Gift: Faith, Expectations, and a Little Girl Names Penny here.    
Also, I’m not an expectant mom, but for those of you in the baby market,  this post on what to register for was very informative.  
The Pioneer Woman has never, ever led me astray, so when I made this macaroni and cheese on Sunday, I was NOT disappointed!  
Have a recent favorite?  We’d love to hear it!
Have a great weekend!
