Friday Favorites {Edition Eight}

Happy Friday, friends.  I'm linking up with Andrea from Momfessionals and her friends for this blog post. 

Speaking of favorites, I don't just link up with her on Fridays--her blog is one of my favorite blogs that I read everyday.  I love it because she posts great ideas for meal inspiration, and she always shares about things she loves to buy from Trader Joe's or Amazon.  I'm a sucker for all of those.  If you haven't already, check her out, and even more so if you have kids that are young.

On the topic of my favorite blogs, if you're on your phone and scroll all the way down to the bottom of this post, you should see a 'view web version', and if you click on that, you'll see the list of blogs I read everyday on the right side of the screen.  Those are all great reads, and they're there for a reason.

Moving right along now, I'll start with the post.

One reason I love Fridays so much is because it's the day my dad comes over.  This was me, all ready for him last week.  I pulled out a glass for his water and cups for the both of us to drink our afternoon coffee from.  I always take him home on Fridays, and I sneaked a couple of pictures of my favorite parts of my childhood home.

I have always loved that blue tile floor that's his entry way.  I spent many a day roller skating over that thing!  I'm shocked it's held up so well in the fifty years he's lived at this address.

I also love the fireplace--this and that pretty tile on the floor always remind me a little of pictures I've seen of homes with a Spanish flair.  Their house is always so neat and orderly, and that makes my heart so happy.  It's also simple and clean and just overall appealing to my senses.

This wreath is my newest and favorite thing hanging on my walls.  I love to re-purpose things in my house, and I can't quite get things right at the moment, with things I have on my walls.  I loved this wreath at the front door, but I had to move it because the flowers were getting squished.  I ended up putting it in the dining room and I love it there, and moved what was there to above the couch in the living room, and I think I like that better in there, as well.  But now the rest of it seems off.  I don't know what's wrong.  I need to work on it some this week while my husband and oldest son are out of town.  I have some plans of things I'd love to get done while they're gone.

My awesomely talented mom made this wreath for me.  Isn't it beautiful?

I told Todd we needed this.  Never have truer words been spoken.  Written?

I'm hoping Toddley and I can make a Costco run together tonight.  I love doing that with him.  These are my favorite cookies right now, and you can only buy them at Costco.  They're soft with crunchy peanuts on top.  We need more of these, and several other necessities.

This little guy is obsessed with his latest toy.  Chip loves anything with a squeaker inside, and this cow is his current favorite.  I thought it was so cute that he brought it up to the couch with him one day while he took a nap.

And to prove my other dogs do exist, I took these of them.

Living their best life on the furniture.

Tuesday night I went to a women's event at a church in Memphis with a couple of my favorite people, and this is where we first stopped to eat dinner.  It was Missy's first time there. 

While at the event, I won a Bible!  Not only a Bible, but my favorite Bible, the She Reads Truth Bible, and I've already started using it.

It's hard to tell, but it's rose gold and shimmery.  It feels like leather, but it's not.  I love it, though, and it came at a good time because my other one similar to this with a hard cover was falling apart and looking pretty dingy (the cover).  I retired it that night and pulled this one out.

I was shocked that I won, and I definitely didn't expect the prize to be a Bible. 

This was one of my favorite days this week, the day I started working on a writing project.  The day flew by, and I spent six hours studying and writing. 

Well, laundry and other things are calling my name, so I'm going to wrap this up.  Thanks for reading!  Have a great weekend.  Love to all. 


  1. Congrats on winning that gorgeous Bible! I loved seeing pictures of your childhood home. I also remember roller skating everywhere at around ages 11-13. Thanks for the mention on your sidebar. I just added you to mine too. Have a good weekend!

  2. Thank you! I was floored that I won such a nice and expensive gift. Its' a $50-$60 Bible! Yes! We must be the same age. It was all the rage to skate inside the house, and I couldn't always easily get to an actual skating rink. Oh, the eighties! I miss them sometimes. Thanks for adding me to your sidebar! Have a great weekend, Tanya!


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog!
