5 Good Things

February 18, 2014 — 8 Comments

Good morning, lovely people.

It is Tuesday, the temperature in Nashville is *supposed* to break 60 today, and Raechel and I spent hours last night scheming new ways to make She Reads Truth awesome. It’s a good day.

To celebrate, I present to you Five Things That Are Making Amanda Happy. Enjoy.

#1: As Sure As The Sun

I’ve been listening to Ellie Holcomb’s new record in the swagger wagon nonstop for a week, and I’m in love. Yesterday, while my three loud children were especially loud on our new FORTY MINUTE COMMUTE to school, I swear Ellie’s sweet voice and the words of these true songs – and a bit of deep breathing – saved my sanity and their lives.
The album released today. Get it.

#2: Antler Necklace from buraellen

I need more long necklaces and more antlers in my life. Voila! My new favorite. This adorable little Etsy shop, run by my internet friend Amy, also has some light and pretty infinity scarves perfect for spring. Use code SPRING now through Thursday for 20% off (making the antler necklace less than $15 including shipping!)

#3: You Are Special by Max Lucado

I rediscovered this storybook while living with my mom these last few weeks, and it’s just so good. The kids love it, and the ¬†message is one I can’t hear enough. “The dots only stick if you let them.” (hashtag praise hands)
Buy it and you’ll see what I mean.

#4: David Kind eyewear

First of all, is Raechel not the cutest? Those are her David Kind specs we’re wearing, and I WANT. Like, real bad. David Kind operates a bit like Warby Parker in that they send you glasses to try on free before you order. The difference is that at David Kind, a stylist chooses frames for you, based on your facial features and personal style. Since I’ve worn my WP glasses a total of 10 times ever, I’m looking forward to potentially paying a bit more for a pair I’ll actually love and wear. My first try-on box comes soon. I’ll keep you posted (you’re welcome).
Go here to have David Kind style you for free, too.

#5: God’s love does not grow weary.

This quote is from our current study of 1, 2 & 3 John over at She Reads Truth. Just yes. Yes, yes, yes, and Amen.

Have a good Tuesday, friends.

  1. I might need that necklace….

  2. I totally want that necklace!! I tried to use the discount code though, and it said it wasn’t valid. Is it just SPRING? I really want to order it, but I don’t want to miss out on the discount if it’s available :)

  3. Um um um, I’d like you to write here again. :)
