Rewards, MOPS and Mochas

It has been a fast but fun week around here. How has your week been? Rewards, MOPS, and Mochas are a few of my favorite things from this week. Read on to find out what my other favorites are.

  1. Kohl’s Rewards

I received an email earlier this week reminding me to use my Kohl’s reward. I didn’t even know that I had a reward so that made it all the more fun. I headed to Kohl’s in search of an item to spend my $10 reward on. I found this shirt. It was over $10 but I didn’t have to pay a cent. I love the Yes2You Rewards program at Kohl’s!



  1. Celebrating Friend’s birthdays

Two of my best friends, Kristi and Aimee, celebrated birthdays within the last week and a half. I really enjoy giving gifts so it was extra fun for me to pick out gifts for each one. I am incredibly grateful for both of these friends, so celebrating their life was a blessing.


  1. My MOPS table

I am part of a MOPS group. We generally meet the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month. My table this year has been amazing. I love how God worked by placing us all together. Each one of these ladies has a story and I love that we can encourage one another. These women are beautiful inside and out! They are strong and running hard after Jesus. I am so honored to be a part of this group!


  1. Awesome Neighbors

I love my neighbors! My backyard neighbor Jenny, who also happens to be a good friend, saved the day two times this week. Yesterday morning, I put dinner in the crockpot. I pulled out the salsa to add but couldn’t use it. It didn’t get sealed the last time we used it so it was moldy. Ewe! So I quickly texted Jenny and she brought some salsa over. And then this morning, Jenny took Caleb to preschool for me. It sounds so simple but it gave me an extra 20 minutes to run some errands. It was a huge blessing for my full day.


  1. Salted Caramel Mocha

Starbucks carries a drink in the Fall season called Salted Caramel Mocha. I LOVE this drink! I am not much of a coffee person unless it’s sugared up. The sea salt that is added to this drink adds so much flavor. It’s especially yummy on a cold, rainy morning.


I hope you enjoyed reading about the five things I am grateful for this week. It was fun writing about it all. How about you? What are you grateful for this week? I would love to hear about your week. Please share in the comments below. Have a great weekend!
