Thanking God on Friday!

 ~  I am thankful that my IRL friend Katie started a blog (I talked about her here)!  You can check it our here.  I can't wait to see all that she has to say...she's a canner, working on her running, and big into history and antiques (she has the coolest Christmas tree that I know she's going to post about soon using memorabilia from her family).  She also plans on talking about ways to save money and we could all use good tips about that!  So, stop over and show her some love.

~  I am thankful that my friend Lyndsey and her mom host a cookie exchange party every year (this is the fourth year!).  It is always a really fun time, with good food, door prizes, and of course lots of cookies.  This year I'm making toffee sugar cookies...here's the recipe.

~  I am thankful for this site.  A few friends and I are arranging meals to take to a friend who just had surgery.  This is a very useful site that helps us to organize who is bringing what and when and it also allows the person who is receiving the meals to access the site.  So, if you need to organize a meal for that family who just had a baby or for someone who is unable to cook for themselves this is a great tool.

How nice of you to organize meals for your friend Kelli! What a great website. You are a wealth of information for me these days! Keep it coming. :)

I showed my husband the planner I want from Erin last night and I was just giddy with excitement... I think he thought I was crazy but I don't care. :)
