Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!!  WAHOO!  This week my list of to-dos has been long so I'm excited about seeing the weekend arrive!  Narci, Andrea, and I are sharing our FRIDAY FAVORITES!!  You should join us!  

In true Friday fashion, I have a TON of randomness for you...
For some reason I thought this graphic I saw on Instagram was hilarious!!  And SO true!!  

We had our Bible Fellowship Group Christmas Party this week.  The McAnallys were in charge of planning and it was fabulous!!  We played the best minute-to-win-it games.  It was just a fun night!

Tab and I are using a straw to suck up M & Ms and move them from one plate to the next.  It was intense.  I love that our room was screaming and yelling...guys against girl stuff-even when you're in your 30's is just a good time!
The guys might have ended up with the win at the end of the night, but who's counting?  :)

I shared this picture a couple weeks ago from us hosing Disciple Now.  One of the games we played was called, "Fish Bowl".  I got a couple (not just one...ha!) e-mails asking about it, so I thought I'd share...

Fish Bowl Game:
*You give everyone three small blank pieces of paper.  They have to write a person on one, a place on another, and a thing on the other.  You put all the slips of paper in a bowl.  
*You split the group into two teams.
*The first round you give each player 30 seconds to get their team to guess the words in the bowl.  They can use any word to describe them just no part of the name.  (For example, they couldn't say, "It's a famous Mountain" to get them to say, "Mount Rushmore".  Make sense??)  Let each person take a turn until all the slips of paper are gone.  
*The second round they act out the slips of paper.  No words or sounds can be made.
*The third round they can only say ONE WORD to get them to guess the slips of paper.
*By the third round, they've heard the words two other times, so you can say something as simple as "Presidents" and your group would guess, "Mount Rushmore".
*At the end, the team with the most points-wins!

 This week I also got to attend one of my favorite Christmas parties-Shay's Recipe Exchange.  Every year I look forward to delicious food, having a blast with these girlfriends, and the party favors.  Shay always has the best party favors!!

Seriously...a GREAT night!

I bought myself a new pair of warm pajamas to wear to Shay's Pajama Party.  However, I did not have it zipped down so low!  :)

I shared our Christmas decorations.  If you missed them earlier this week, check them out here.

I shared my Christmas Wishlist on Wednesday.  If you want to see what I'm really hoping for (but odds are, are NOT getting...haha!), check it out here.

And yesterday I shared something I'm crazy excited about.  Seriously...I'm stoked and want to share the news with everyone.  You can see that post here.

We have FUN Christmas plans this weekend!  We're making our most of the Christmas season before it's over!  Happy Friday!  XOXO

Love the graphic and that's exactly what I do. I cannot stand ugly pans! :o)) And, you brought back so many memories for me with this post........Discipleship Now. My goodness, we have hosted so many of those over the years with our kids. And, being in our 30's and what fun it was. But, must say, we are still having fun in our 60's. Blessings abundant my dear!
