Things I'm Loving FriYay #7
Not only is it Friday, but it is also fall y'all! Please tell me you are as excited as I am.
The leaves are starting to change around here, so I am currently trying to find the time in the next couple of weeks to get to the mountains--Aspen Alley in particular--and take in all of their beauty. Unfortunately, the beautiful leaves last for only a couple of weeks each fall. Because of how fleeting they are I always try my best to fully enjoy their grandeur.
Now that it is official fall, I do not feel shame in pulling out the season appropriate decorations. Pretty soon my house will be filled with faux leaves, pumpkin spice candles, and Halloween decor.
As much as I would like to continue talking about how much I love fall--which, believe me, I could do all day--here is my weekly Things I'm Loving FriYay!
- The Case for Christ
I am such a sucker for a good Christian film. Honestly, I am sometimes a sucker for the cheesy ones as well. But in terms of high Hollywood acting and directing, this film hits the mark. It is based on the best-selling book by Lee Strobel (find it here) a former atheist turned Christian after conducting an intense journalistic study of the life and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
This story hit a soft spot for me personally as I know of a few people in this same situation. In Mr. Strobel's case, his wife, a former agnostic, becomes a Christian leaving him to feel as though she has suddenly "drank the kool-aide." In response to her sudden change of heart, he sets out in hopes of providing her with scientific and historical evidence that the Resurrection of Christ was nothing but a sham. Instead, he finds only proof that what is written in the Bible is absolute truth.
This is an amazing story for anyone to watch and provides Christians with a detailed case for Christ and the overall study of apologetics.
- Equal Exchange Chocolates
I do, however, like to make sure my sweets are on the healthier end of the spectrum, when possible. Luckily, Target has an amazing selection of different chocolates in their candy aisle. When I stumbled upon Equal Exchange I knew I had to try it out. These are organic chocolate bars made from small farmers in Central and South America.
I decided on the Dark Chocolate Mint Crunch flavor and it did not disappoint. The mint was not overpowering like in some chocolates (ah em--Peppermint Patties), but was strong enough to nicely compliment the richness of the dark chocolate.
- Dasani Sparkling Water
It seems to be a recurring theme, but I just can't stay away from sparkling water. I keep trying new brands and loving them! This week I tried Dasani's version as it was on sale at King Soopers. I actually enjoyed it even more so than last week's IZZE water. It was incredibly light, bubbly, and didn't have that over powering seltzer water taste. Plus, I paid less than $3 for an 8-pack--score!
