Sharing some of my Favorites......

Since it's time for Friday Favorites and Company Girl Coffee, I thought I'd actually share some of my "favorite things" - some of the things that make me smile. *Note: Blogger gave me fits with the spacing of this entry. So, do know that I had each "favorite" separated with a double space but only Blogger knows why that didn't work. Ugh!

Opening the drapes of a morning to see the sun shining.
Enjoying a fresh cup of coffee first thing every morning.

Marking things off of my "to do" list - gives me such a sense of accomplishment.
Having things on my "to do list" - makes me feel needed.

Having sassy shoes that are also comfortable shoes - sometimes a difficult combination.
Hearing the words "CiCi" come out of the mouths of my Grans.
Feeling "put together" 

 Spandex - lawdy, that fabric has made clothes so much more comfortable.

Spending time with the Lord in my big blue club chair every morning.

Our tempurpedic mattress and my tempurpedic pillow - both make my back very happy.

Sharing my heart with a friend and knowing that she truly cares about me.

Being connected with so many folks that I would not otherwise be connected with through Facebook.

Sharing Facetime with our daughter and family - makes the miles between us bearable.

A clean and tidy house - plum excites me! 

Looking at the the clothes after I've ironed them and being thankful for a Mom that taught me how to iron at a very early age.

Having our son and his family nearby - so fun to share in their lives and them in ours. 

Slipping into my "comfy clothes" and crawling into my heated recliner for the evening.

Receiving a "thinking of you" card or a note of encouragement at just the "right" time .
 Knowing that the Lord has it all figured out when I don't.

Happy weekend girlies!

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Your list is wonderful! I never thought of the to-do list meaning I'm needed - wonderful perspective. Had to chuckle at the spandex, but I know exactly what you mean. Clothes you can move in and really wear (as opposed to clothes that "wear" you, if you know what I mean) make all the difference.

  2. I love your list! Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Could say "Amen" to so many of your favorite things.

  4. Great list. Love the mattress and pillow, too. mmm..

  5. Love your list. Have a beautiful weekend.

  6. The first thing I do is open the blinds in the morning. I love to get into comfy clothes at the end of the night. Sometimes if Kevin is away I do it right after dinner! No one is here to see me. Have a good Saturday.

  7. i like that keep calm the best i think. how True!

    my sassy shoes always are comfy which kind of makes them less sassy because they're not so hip, but, it's worth it, i'm learning.

    happy weekend, sweet gal!

  8. Wonderful favorite things Lea! You are a such a dear sweet southern lady Lea. Your organization and cleaning skills amaze me. I know we are friends, but I'm afraid if you walked into my house, you'd soon find out what a project you had on your hands! - Well actually my problem is that I'm a perfectionist and I don't have people into my home unless I can have it looking perfect. (Yes, I'm working on this. I need to be more hospitable,) Well, things never are perfect by my standards so I don't have peoople over very often. This is one of my on going goals this years, to open up my home more, especially to the many non-Chrisitans in my neighborhood that may need to see the love of Jesus a little closer up!

  9. Spandex! You're so cute : ) And I'd have to agree with you on that one!

  10. Great list! I like the first cup of coffee, the bed and pillow and the club chair! "CiCi" is a perfect name for you by your Grans. :)

  11. I wanted to let you know that I tagged you in my post today!

  12. What a delightful post! Visiting through Home Sanctuary.

    Where did you find comfy yet stylish shoes? I am very hard to fit!

  13. I love your list! Several of your favorite things make me smile also. :o) Just a company girl stopping by for a visit!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
