My favorite blog post this week:
I'll have to go with my own, because the Personalized Candles are THAT cool.

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
If you love Historical Fiction as much as I do, you've more than likely read Elizabeth Chadwick, she is phenomenal.  I recently came across her blog and I love it so much :)  Go on over and check out Living the History.

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):


Lesson learned the past few days:

That time flies, and that nothing I do or say will stop it from doing so.  It's best to just soak in every single second of every day and to thankful for the time I have with my wonderful family.  The kids are growing way too fast and it hit both hubby and I, that in just 6 short years Jasmine will be 18.  I can't even wrap my mind around that.

On my mind:

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who watch over my way. In the path where I walk people have hidden a snare for me.
– Psalm 142:3 (NIV)


  1. I have a few more assignments to complete for my college work...THEN it's crochet time! I'm making a couple of things and mug cozies!

    Love your scripture.

    OOOOOH Bacon spaghetti...yum!

  2. I totally agree that time goes by very fast! I try really hard to enjoy the good times with Hailey. She will be a teenager before we know it :)

    I also love the candles! Have a great week

  3. I think you totally read my mind. Banana bread right now sounds great. Going to go make a loaf today.

  4. Have missed linking up - I'm kind of hit-or-miss on that - but I'm always reading ...
    You've got it right that the kids GROW SO QUICKLY!! My 13 year old son only has FOUR more years of school until graduation ahead of him ... that doesn't seem possible & seems incredibly SAD somehow ...

  5. I like Happy Homemaker Monday--Gives me something to look forward to on yucky Mondays :)

  6. cool mug !!! im to late on tired to join in this week,been helping with a school day trip today...

  7. This is my first time linking up! Sandra, I noticed you crochet. I have been wanting to crochet for a long time and I have no idea how to get started! Do you have any advise or resources on how I should get started? Thank you so much!
