Friday Favorites

Time for a Friday's Fave Five hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.

What am I thankful for this week!?

1. Anticipation! Next week we find out who we can be expecting to join our family in the Spring!

I'll letcha know. =) (We're really excited to find out!)

2. We finished reading Women's Ministry in the Local Church, by Susan Hunt, over at Offering Hospitality!

Various other bloggers helped talk through this book and if you're interested in reading any of our thoughts on it, click on these links to check out particular topics:

3. It's a weekend. I can be grateful for something as simple as that, right?! Because I'm really grateful for it!!

4. A Sunshine Award.

Shonya from Learning How Much I Don't Know (I love her blog title!) passed along this blog award to me with the most kind things to say. Shonya - you totally overwhelmed me with your remarks. Thank you so much.

So next I get to pass this award onto someone else and I think I must go with Annette from Live, Learn, Love. I love hearing Annette's thoughts and ideas on reading, raising kids and life in general. We recently discovered that our kids are oh so roughly the exact same age and so I find it even more exciting to read her ideas for Things to Do With Kids. Her suggestions usually hit the mark over here! Plus, I enjoy the random e-mails we toss back and forth. I have so enjoyed the friendship that has grown with her through blogging and only regret that she lives all the way on the other side of the country! She's the type that I'd move closer to me...if that could be arranged. But I think she's content where she's at. AH life!

Thanks, Annette, for the sunshine you spread around these parts. Goodness knows we don't get much of it here in Oregon! ;)

5. Thanksgiving is next week! And I love a good celebration!

So with that- Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Friday to you!

How fun to find out what you're having! I assume via ultrasound? A sweet time to take a peek at the little one.

I just got that book several days ago. I am sorry I missed out on the discussion, but I'll look forward to getting into it later on.

Annette W. said...

Anticipation for any event is such fun!! Can't wait to hear if you'll add some additional colors to your children's laundry hampers!

Thank you for your sweet words. Funny, bc you bring so many smiles and sunshine to my days! You've encouraged me a lot with your comments and emails!

Faith said...

Oh you're pregnant! how wonderful..can't wait to hear if it's a boy or girl :) of course I'm partial to girls :)
Love your list and that book looks like it has some good stuff.....congrats on the award, too! those are always fun! Have a blessed Thanksgiving!!

How exciting to find out the sex of your child! I’ve not heard of that book, but it sounds good. I’m grateful that the weekend is here, too! No more school work (well, once I get papers graded), and then only two days of it next week. Woo-hoo! Enjoy your weekend.

Shonya said...

So glad you were blessed since you have blessed me so much! I'm looking forward to checking out your blog recommendation and finding out if you're having a boy or a girl. They're both positively delightful! :) (esp right now when they're napping--ha!)

Next week?! Can't wait to hear the results!! I think I'm rooting for a little pink in your life. I know how much my spot of pink adds to my blue colored world!!! But. Boys are wonderful too. But. There's just something sweet about a 4 year old girlie asking you to snuggle at bedtime and then saying "Mama, what should we talk about?" as you lay down. My boys DON'T do that.

Anticipation seems to be a theme-an ultrasound, the weekend, Thanksgiving next week... I second all the above (even if I don't have an ultrasound coming up--yours is exciting enough!)

Islandsparrow said...

That is exciting news!! Looking forward to the big announcement.

Congratulations on the bloggie love!

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Oh congratulations on the new little member of your family. How fun that you will find out soon. A very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!

Laura@OutnumberedMom said...

Can't wait to hear about your new little member!

I'll have to take a look at that blog. Sounds wonderful.

Have a great holiday week!

Hazel said...

That's a whole lot of reading. I'm so with you on weekends.

Gattina said...

How exciting girl or boy ! I was a little disappointed to become grandma of a boy, I had hoped for a little girl, lol !

Karyn said...

The book looks very good.

I never thought I'd want to know if we were having a boy or a girl, but when my kids started having babies and sometimes found out the gender ahead of time, I realized how exciting it is to 'know' who is growing in that mommy's tummy.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Willow said...

Hurray for babies! Either boy or girl is great--but I would have liked to know ahead of time.

Happy Thanksgiving! Wishing you a sunshiny day.

Susanne said...

Very exciting times for you and your family!

I love a good celebration too! And of course all the yummy food. LOL.
