A few of my favorite things-

I am a woman who strives to live out loud and for real.  At the end of my life, I want people to know who I truly was and what I stood for.  My theory is, "What good is my life if I'm not living it for real?". 

I'm fairly sure you all know my heart pretty well.  I hope that I write with honesty.  I have written about fears, insecurities, blessings, and desires.  My life story has not been a bed of roses, but my hope is that my thorns have helped others in their journeys.

In order for you guys to know me even better, I decided to share my Top 10 list of favorite things.  I hope you enjoy peeking into what makes me smile. :)

1.  My kiddos.  You knew they would make it on my list - they make my heart strive to live well. 

2.  My little desk area.  It's small but it's mine and this is where I write and study God's Word. 

3.  My pink Bible.  I adore that it's pink!  It is written all throughout and the pages feel so comforting to my prying fingers.

4.  Our couch.  This is where we huddle together to watch movies, TV shows, sporting events, etc.  Many of cuddles have taken place on this couch.

5.  My make up.  I am a girl who enjoys all things make up!

6.  Books...need I say more!? 

7.  Our Nutra Ninja.  I love throwing in all kinds of good for me foods.  It's so easy and convenient and it makes me feel like I'm doing something good for my body and the bodies of my loves.

8.  My washer and dryer.  :)  I am one of those crazies who looks forward to laundry days {Every Sunday and Wednesday}.  I love the way the clothes smell and feel when I take them out of the dryer.  Maybe it's the sense of accomplishment??

9.  My morning cup of coffee.  I set my coffee pot each night to brew before I get out of bed.  Oh man, that first sip is always the best!!

10.  My husband...<3 nbsp="" p="">

I placed my kids first and my husband last because my family are my bookends.  Their love holds everything in place.

All of you are my #11.  I have met some wonderful people through blogging and my heart is so grateful.  I am sending all of you hugs and love!!

  5. I love it all and getting to know you better. We would be besties for sure! And your babies are gorgeous... But look at their parents! :-) I too love the feel of clean laundry and empty laundry baskets although the task can be a bit difficult here these days. Happy New Year to you!

  6. Aww!! I loved reading this!! It was so precious to read about your children and husband being "bookends" - LOVE that!!!

  8. This pretty much settles it for me. We must be kindred spirits! With the exception of laundry, those are most if my favorite things also! 😊 And you are welcome to come do my laundry any time you need an extra fix... LOL
