Filler UP Friday

Just a quick hello this GOOD FRIDAY. I hope everyone gets their FILL weekend.

FILL yourself so that you can overflow. I know, easier said than done at times. But to me, FILLING ourselves starts with being kind to ourselves, loving ourselves, and being thankful… yes… for OURselves.

Do I sound like a hallmark card yet?194569646370728732_DS2keskp_c

  16. i LOVE how the writing above the treat photo looks like a cross. YOU! have a wonder-filled and awe-filled weekend.
    Happy Easter.

    • *random* suddenly the word awful will never be the same to me– it sounds like it could be “awe-full” which in my head is now translating to “full of awe” after writing the above comment.

      weird, haw? i don’t think i like the word awful as a word anymore.
      no worries. i’ll be over it tomorrow.

    • LOL! You know i love you more and more each day with these comments. I’m AWFULLY thankful for you.

  17. Oh my gosh those sound sinfully delicious…except they aren’t sinful at all ;). I plan to spend the evening out to dinner catching up with some friends and just enjoying each others company!

  18. mmmm tasty tasty health bites :)

    Happy Easter to you and the Hubs :) xx

    Aaaand, I have no doubt your healthy mini caramel Cadbury eggs will as well. I hope you plan on sharing some with the Easter Bunny!

    Have a beautiful weekend, my friend! xoxo

  26. We filled our home on Friday with wee one clothes/shoes/blankets/bibs, etc. since through prayer we know the gender of said wee one.

    Angels blessed us with a free gift from an Earth Angel, and we are beyond grateful.

    We also filled our home with the laughter and wackiness of a 13 year old young man all week who could not be more thrilled about his future sibling. :-)

  27. I think I’ll fill myself with more healthy bites! And lots of smiles because I get a week off to relax and catch up on all my studying. Hope you have a lovely easter weekend :)

  28. I plan to fill my family up with love and quality time.

    What a blessing you are, friend. Beautiful message.

    Tasty little bits!

  29. Oh Lindsay- I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I love the new look of the site and that recipe for healthy bites. That’s just not nice because now I want to make thme right now instead of do my taxes. :) LOVE YA!!!!!

  30. I filled myself with making homemade donuts and coloring easter eggs with the kids. Good morning. And thanks for the recipe…I can’t wait to try these healthy bites!

  31. beautiful as always 😉 hope you guys have a wonderful Easter!
