This Week’s Fave Catholic Item
Blessed Is She’s Encouraging Bible Verse Cards

Since getting involved in Blessed Is She (not just as a writer but as a reader of the daily devotionals) I have spent more time in God’s word and have been wanting to memorize more of my favorite verses. I got these beautifully hand lettered Encouraging Bible Verse Cards and pick one each week to pray about and memorize.They can also be used as card to friends.
Then I chose three of my favorites – “I will be with you,” (Joshua 1:5) and “Arm yourself and be brave,” (1 Maccabees3:58) and “You are God’s field.” (1 Cor 3:9) I added them in a frame and every morning I read the three verses and it sets the tone for my day. 🙂

This Week’s Fave Movie
The Quiet Place
The other night I went to go see the movie The Quiet Place. I had heard a lot of good things about it both from the entertainment world and the Catholic world so my hopes were high. I was not disappointed. The movie thoroughly freaked me out, especially watching it in mama bear mode. It is not one of those bloody slasher movies but one of those psychological terrors, which to me is much more scary. Add to it positive elements of family, married love (the tender scene with the dance and the earbuds had me in tears,) prayer, the value of new life and sacrificial love. There is plenty to ponder. Excellent work.

This Week’s Fave Snack

Whenever I happen to go to Whole Foods to stock up on certain items, I always have to get a bag or two of Sabor Mexicano Homemade Corn Chips. They are so good! They taste like they came straight from your favorite Mexican restaurant. Warning: Serve a small amount then close the bag and put it away. Otherwise, you may not be able to stop eating them. Ask me how I know. 😉

This Week’s Fave Hand Cream
Trader Joe’s Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream
Winter is over, at least theoretically speaking, but my hands are still rough and dry from the cold weather and (still) having the heater on at night. I bought this Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream when I was shopping at Trader Joe and it is lovely! It works so well to smooth my dry hands. It is thick but not too greasy. It blends into the skin well and smells great! Plus, I was surprised to see that they actually sell it on Amazon. 🙂

This Week’s Fave Flowers on My Deck
For Easter I got this gorgeous potted hydrangea plant from Costco and now all the little buds are opening and blooming. It makes the deck really look like spring! I love it.

This Week’s Fave Road Trip
Pixar Fest at Disneyland

Bella and I made an impromptu trip to Disneyland (we are there today!) to catch the new Pixar Fest. It is running until September but every weekend in May and June in the calendar is booked. July is sketchy and August starts school again so this was literally our only free weekend when all the stars aligned.
So we played hooky and are enjoying a girls’ weekend. 😉
Here is a little peak at the limited run (4/13/18 – 9/3/18) Pixar Fireworks Show. 🙂

This Week’s Fave Order Placed
Blessed Is She Planner
I know I already posted about the new Blessed Is She Planner earlier this week but I just want to remind you that this weekend (Sun 4/22) is the last day to get the pre-order sale price. The planners will ship out in May and with my busy schedule, I will be filling it in quickly. 🙂
Those are my favorites of the week! What have you been enjoying?
I’m also linking up with Kelly for this week’s 7 Quick Takes.
Have a great weekend!
