On Names, Originality, and Love

What a busy week! We're finally at Friday! This is also the only post I didn't have scheduled this week. Oops. I'd like to announce, in case y'all missed it, Amanda at Knock on Wood made an exciting announcement yesterday for a fun new linkup starting Monday. And I promise, to all of my wonderful readers, to get some much needed rest this weekend. Amanda suggested a mommy / daddy vaca... that'll be next weekend for our Anniversary! This weekend is just going to be all about resting! I really do appreciate all of the sweet comments telling me to get my butt to bed though. Thank y'all for looking out for me.

So let's do this! Linking up with Meagan at All the Joys for Friday Faves! (Holy cow, there were a lot this week, y'all!)
All The Joys Friday Favorites

+ Amy at Set Free talked about baby names. Firstly, I absolutely love the names she's picked for her bundle of joy on the way. Secondly, I love this post because it reminds me of when I was pregnant (with both kids) and the looks I'd get when we would tell people the names we had chosen. (**ALSO I really loved her post about the "perfect" mom!)

+ The Florkens talked about The Struggle for Originality this week, and whoa! Some of the points they made really got me thinking, "am I staying true to myself?"

+ Lauren at Lot 48 had a great find for what to buy any man in your life. Men are hard to shop for, and this post seriously will help a lot of women that don't know what to get!

+ Cassie at Sage the Blog wrote this amazing post about conflicts she's been having with herself and delcaring the Word to others. Seriously, this was just so beautiful. Just go read it if haven't already!

+ Kenji from Kenji is Here had an amazing take on sunrises and new beginnings. I just loved it. :)

So what were your faves from this week? Did any of mine make your list? I hope everyone has a great weekend!
Also, sorry for the super short post. I did this on my lunch break #unprepared.
