{Friday} Favorite Things



friday favorite things | finding joy

I love this time of the week...when I get to share with you my favorites and things I'm thankful for.  Thank you Rachel for hosting each week :)

 This book about squirrels...written by Jamison:


The fact that her book had the cutest blurb (I might be a little biased):


Checking off items on my To Do list

Notebooks

Reading to Jamison

The book Crazy Love...so far (you should really check it out...challenging, but good)

The anticipation of the new Stampin Up! catalog (July 1!)

Remembering this scene:


Jamison helping me with dinner

Caleb trying to make his own peanut butter sandwich

Discovering new (to me) blogs...like this one

Jamison telling me a knock knock joke that made me laugh out loud

This soap (and another one called Eucalyptus Mint...so refreshing):


Today & tomorrow's forecast...70's, sunny & DRY!

Quiet evenings @ home

Making plans for a summer day-trip to IKEA
   
Seeing answered prayer

 Witnessing my kids share a tender moment together:

I need a trip to Ikea too:) Your beach pictures make me want to load up the kids and head to Destin now...it's only 4 hours! Jamison's blurb about squirrels is too cute. Have a great weekend Kelli!

How sweet is Jamison's book? I LOVE the blurb and the squirrel illustration. :o)

Knock-knock jokes that are actually funny? Really? We don't have those here...

"Knock Knock"
"Who's there?"
"ummmmmmm, dragon."
"Dragon who?"
"Dragons are funny and shoot fire. HA HA HA HA HA!!! Wasn't that funny?!?"
"Um, ha ha?"

Yeah, that's what it's like around here. :sigh:

;o)

Absolutely love that tender moment you captured! (and the shiny handle on your kitchen sink!)
Have a good weekend enjoying that nice weather-

Sarah said...

Mmm, I love yummy hand soaps...

The squirrel book is so cute! That's the kind of thing you'll want to save and embarrass her with several years from now :). And the fact that she titled the blurb "Blurb"? Oh my gosh, cutest thing ever.

What some great favorites!

The beach shot of the three of them is so precious! That is def a framable moment.

And the shot of the kids together...ohhhh...sweetness!!

Sounds like y'all are going to have some fabulous Spring weather.

I have never been to IKEA. I have got to find one close to us and head to one soon. Everybody always seems to find the best things there.

Rachel said...

You are simply wonderful. Your list of favorites always always always blesses me.

That book? Unbelievably priceless. And it made me smile.

I think I need some of that handsoap.

Friend -- you bless me. Seriously.

Love that squirrel book, so cute! Also love the pictures you posted Kelli! That last one is so neat.

Ps- those cute measuring spoons were from my blog friend in Utah. She got them at a store in Logan where they sell flavored honeys.
