My Thursday Favorites 

My Thursday favorites for this week are very random, which isn't at all unusual for me. So without further ado here they are...

1.Reading with Ashley

Ashley is working on reading at school so every night we sit down and read her books before I read her one at bedtime. She is doing really well with this and I love getting to share it with her.

2. Pumpkin Doughnuts

I seriously love  pumpkin and this week our Hy-Vee had pumpkin doughnut holes. I was a little skeptical but bought a thing of them anyway, and they are fabulous! Seriously they might be my new favorite.

3. A Solier's Memoir

I have posted about this song a few times previously, but the official video was released this week on YouTube. I am blessed to call Joe a friend, and this song and video are amazing. This is definitely a message that needs to be heard and I encourage all of you to share it.

4. Sweater Shoes

Okay these may not be the most stylish shoes ever, but they are amazing for work. I am on my feet most of the day and these keep my feet from being sore, and also keep me warm.

5. Turkey Roll Up

I had been struggling with what to take to work for lunch as I don't have access to a microwave and don't really get a lunch break. I can eat in my room, but that means it needs to be something simple. I found a recipe for a roll up and I changed it a bit and have taken it the last two days. They are super yummy. I plan to mix up what I put in them, but the basic list is below.

Flatout Multi- Grain with Flaxseed flatbread
Alfalfa sprouts
Red Onion
Cheese (I did this one day and not the next)
Alouette Garlic and Herb Spread
