{Five Minute Friday}

Happy FRIDAY!!!!!!

Time for my five favorite things from this week:

#1. Summer Home Project: Coming back home from family camp has been a bit of adjustment. Back to cooking, cleaning, and the lovely routine. Camp left us refreshed and seriously rested, so much so that when we came home we painted the dining room and kitchen. I have been wanting to paint it for a while now, but wasn’t set on a color. We went this beautiful grey from Glidden called Secret Locket. I had them lighten it once. I love the way it came out. It has brightened up our whole space! I have some great shots of the kitchen I will share very soon as my next project is to paint the kitchen cabinets.

#2. Summer Reading: This summer my goal is to read at least one book a month. I just finished Made to Crave and loved it and now I am on to Radical by David Platt. I heard this book would mess me up and I was willing and ready for the challenge. I love books that challenge me, grow me and turn to God’s word. I also love to get lost in fiction books as well. Any books that you have loved this year?

#3. Garden: Our garden is really coming a long. We already have several peppers, zucchini, and squash. This year we planted a lot of tomatoes, kale, peppers, squash, cucumbers, and root vegetables. I can’t wait to do some canning!

#4. TRX BURN: We finished phase 2 of the TRX BURN which is part of my 10 week challenge! We have one more phase to go. I do measurements this weekend and I am pretty sure I haven’t changed too much from the last month, but I feel great and I am loving the workouts! I will do a full review of this program at the end of the month. Phase 3 is KILLER! We are doing some inverted planks, inverted presses, single arm rows, and much more. If you are on Periscope, follow me @nhershoes. It’s a fun live streaming app that and I will be doing a lot of TRX workouts and some 20 minute at home workouts on there, that you can do a long with me!

#5. Community: This week at our Thursday night community group my heart was filled with joy! Since RJ was born we have been meeting every Thursday night for dinner and just some good old fashion fellowship. There is a total of 14 kids in the group and 17 adults. This week as I turned the corner and saw a few of them snuggled together on the bed, I paused a moment and thanked the Lord for these sweet littles and I can’t wait for them to grow up together and be not just friends, but family!
