Friday Favorites

It's Friday and I've been thinking about some of my Favorite Things and I'm linking up with sweet Rachel to share them with you.

My Favorites today are:

Freshly folded laundry and clothes that have just been ironed.

Lamp light throughout a room (love the warmth they add)

The smell of food cooking all day in my crockpot

Trimmed and colored hair

Wearing that "just right" outfit with matching shoes ~wink~

Hearing the words "CiCi" come out of the mouth of my Grans

The peach colored roses dipped in glitter that Hubby gave me for our anniversary this past Wednesday 

 The feel of clean sheets on the bed

Planning and anticipating a trip

Seeing God at work in my life and others

Giving of myself  to make someone else happy

Freshly polished fingernails and toenails

Knowing I have a navigation system in my vehicle - I'm very directionally challenged

Hearing a sermon that stirs my heart

Learning something new

Our memory foam mattress

Knowing that my Chi flat iron will make my hair smooth with just the right amount of straightness

The slight buzz of a little box fan as I sleep at night

Hearing the sound of my cuckoo clock 

Getting in my recliner and covering up with MY afghan

Sitting down with the latest issue of Southern Living magazine

Listening to Pandora Radio on my IPad

Browsing Pinterest

My list could truly go on and on but I'll stop for now.  It does me good to think of the very plain and ordinary things that are often some of my very favorite things.

  1. We share so many favorite things - especially the planning/anticipating of a trip (where are you going next?), clean sheets on the bed, hearing "Nana" out of the mouths of my grands, lamplight in a room, a little white noise at night, etc. ;-) Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. love the roses. never saw ones dipped in glitter!!

  3. We do have so much to be thankful for. I too am grateful for my GPS, without Garmin I would be lost. Have a peaceful day.

  4. I love this list and nodding at each one of them...enjoy your weekend!!

  5. What a great list, one I can sure identify with.

    Also, have to say I LOVE the beautiful picture of you and you hubby! What a great milestone. Congratulations!

  6. Okay, I love every single item on this list--they all make my heart happy...but my favorite?? THOSE ROSES! I am just dying at the glitter dipped edges...LOVE! Good job to the hubs :) Happy weekend to you!

  7. Freshly folded laundry. YES. I hate wrinkly clothes -- juuust saying. Ha!

    The roses are so pretty too. I have never seen them dipped in glitter -- very elegant though!

  8. We are "birds of a feather" in so many of the "simple" things we like. The roses in glitter are stunning. I think you should hang on to that man of yours.

  9. Now that's a great list!
    Love when the laundry is done.
    Love the warm lighting of a lamp.
    Nothing like clean sheets.
    Love to make people happy.
    My memory foam pillow. I bet the bed is awesome!
    Pinterest is my slice of happy each day :)

  10. such lovely favorites, indeed. i love the smell of food in a crockpot since it means i don't really have to cook dinner!! ; ) hope your weekend is full of these sweet things. xo!


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!
