Faves of the week

Before I post my faves this week, I need to say that God, at times,  puts people in our lives to teach us and enrich us.  I am so blessed that many years ago He placed someone in our lives that did just that.  This person is so extremely special to us.  We will forever be blessed.  As the new week begins, I will write more....

This week has been a whirlwind of activity and emotions.  I am grateful that I have a family who truly loves each other and stands together in all times.  Words cannot express the gratitude I have for my husband for the support he offers in good times and bad. 

My faves this week are:

1.   Visiting with my friend, Michelle, and holding her new sweeties.  Aren't they cuties?!  God blessed her with two.  He is so good and generous!

2.  Jorden received his SAT score and he rocked it.  I am so very proud of him!!  He worked so hard preparing.  Now on to college applications....

3.  Barry and I were able to sneak two movies in this week.  We love taking in a movie while the kids are in school.  His work schedule allowed us to do it twice this week.  We aren't sure what we love more-the popcorn or the actual movie?!

4.  A cool front finally blew through Houston.  The high was in the mid 60's today.  We are definitely hootin' and hollerin'.  I may have to pull out the electric blanket tonight....aww, just kidding!!! 

5.  As I have said before, I am a laundry freak!  I LOVE doing laundry.  I finally bought Downy Unstopables.  Woo, hoo they are wonderful.  My entire laundry room smells wonderful.  Don't even get me started on how our clothes smell!!

May your weekend be full of many faves, but may love be at the top of your list.  Remember, nothing is as sweet as a hug and kind words. 



  1. Those babies are absolutely precious!! So cute -thank you for sharing :) And you love doing laundry...would you like to come visit my home? :) Have a great weekend!


    1. Aren't they! They make me have baby fever. My husband says to take an aspirin and get over it! :-)
      If you lived close I would surely do your laundry!! ;-)

  2. Those are the cutest little babies! Im one of your newest followers.

    1. Aww, thanks!! I'm heading to your blog now. :-)

  3. Hello!

    Wow, twins!!! What a lucky, blessed lady she is. I ALWAYS wanted to have twins, always PRAYED to have twins, but I did not; I guess God had other plans.

    I love doing the laundry, too. We are so blessed to have the convenience of home machines, aren't we?

    Congratulations to Jorden!

    What fun for you and your husband to get to go to two movies in a week.

    Happy Saturday!
    :) Hope

  4. Rocking SAT scores? Hm...I'm smelling a little maroon blood running through some veins! College Station is a mighty fine place :)

    Oh, you are so my sister...I LOVE LAUNDRY! I love the fresh scent (it goes along with my strange fear of having a smelly house) and can't wait to try out those unstoppables!!

  5. Sounds like a great week! The babies are adorable. Congrats and God Bless to your friend. :)

    Well done Jorden!!!


I love connecting with you all through comments. Your words bring my heart joy.
