Top 10 Tuesday: Books On My Wishlist

This week, I found a new link-up on The Broke and the Bookish. Since many of you know that I am a bookaholic, I found this this linky one I will certainly enjoy, although I am not sure if I will be able to list just ten! I decided that I wanted to go for a theme on my first post, so I think this will be my top 10 Tuesday Fiction list. General fiction, of course, because I am not sure I can stick to one genre. The Fixer Upper by Mary Kay Andrews The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks. Yes, I love Nicholas. He Notebooked me, and I have been a fan ever since. When In Doubt, Add Butter by Beth Harbinson The Recipe Club by Andrea … [Read more...]

Simple Woman’s Daybook: A Snowy Sunday

Have you ever thought about being a simple woman or writing a daybook? The Simple Woman's daybook is one of my favorite blog memes to do. I always get lots of comments, visits, and encouragement when I write it. My daybook always combines little parts of my everyday life. Sometimes I feel like my life takes on such a hectic pace. Blogging about my week helps me to see what my week is like, and maybe figure out how to slow things down a bit. So I hope that you enjoy this post. And join in with the Simple Woman's daybook as well. I keep trying to make it simple. But sometimes I make things more complicated. Trying counts, right? Right? … [Read more...]

Christmas Style: Tag I Am It!

Christmas is always a fun time for me, well most of the time. When I worked as a nurse, it was hard being away from the family during a holiday. I always knew it was part of the job, and that it would happen, but it still didn't make it any easier. Considering how much I love being with my family, not being able to spend a holiday with them was pure torture. I was comforted in the fact that I was helping my patients and their families, so it wasn't always so difficult. So when Cia of Cia Pink Pumpkin tagged me in a Christmas post, I was excited to join in! I like question posts like these because they really make you stop and think and … [Read more...]

What I Learned This Week: The Sick Edition

It is Tuesday already, time for another edition of what I learned this week. Not sure that I learned anything this week because I have been too busy being sick with a sinus infection, Totally not fun at all.  So maybe I did learn some things. I learned that rest really is the best remedy for you when you are sick. I took the time this past weekend to just rest.  I was sad that I didn't get to do some of the housework I wanted to do, but at least I am not totally exhausted. That staying hydrated is important, especially when you have a stuffed up nose. Being sick interferes with good menu planning. Which, in turn, makes for bad … [Read more...]


What I Learned This Week: Last Week In October

Once again, I am totally amazed that time has gone so fast. Wasn't I just posting that I was happy that summer was here?  Now November is almost upon us, and it is time that I started thinking about the holidays.  But I so don't want to. It seems like I have so much I have to do, mostly having to do with cleaning and buying a new Christmas tree.  Our old one fell apart after last season, so unless I want a construction paper tree, I need to start looking. So, onto the more important things. What did I learn this week?  Seems like it is the same old things. I learned that the laundry does not end. Ever.  I also learned that I am a … [Read more...]

Favorite Post Friday: Fall Beverages

Welcome back to Favorite Post Friday!  I thought I'd take a shot, and have a mini-blog hop. Everyone seemed to enjoy it, so I thought I'd turn it into a hop.  I am going to try a different theme for each week. Since I am trying desperately trying to hang on to the Fall season, I thought I'd start with something that everyone loves!     As you know, I don't like blog hops with a lot of rules.  So here are a few simple ones:   Follow me on any social media, but I could really use some new email followers. Take a moment to Tweet this post and spread the news. Or you can Pin it. Maybe Google+.  StumbleUpon … [Read more...]


What I Learned This Week 10/8

There are some weeks that go by so fast that you aren't even sure if you learned anything because you are rushing to catch up. This past week was one of those that it seems like it just started, and when you blink, you realize it is 10pm on a Saturday night. Okay, let's slow down here.  What did I learn this past week? Did I learn anything this week? Oh wait, yeah I did.  Here are a few things: No matter how much you plan the week before you get house guests, you will still find yourself rushing to get the house cleaned up 2 hours before they are set to arrive. The laundry just never ends.  Ever. Indian summer is no fun when you … [Read more...]

what i learned this week

What I Learned This Week~July 2nd

What I Learned This Week has always been a favorite blog meme. Reading some of Julie's entries has always brought a smile to my face. Each week I think that there isn't anything I could have possibly learned that is worth blogging about. Or sometimes it seems like I learn the same stuff over and over and over again. Sometimes I feel like I am doing nothing but complaining, and who wants to read that, right? But then I think, maybe someone out there understands or is going through the same thing. So, without further discussion, here is what I learned this week:   I learned this week that I love when hubby and I have date … [Read more...]
