Friday Favorites and Life Lately

Hey there.
I took a little break from blogging over the last couple of weeks.  It was unintentional, but much needed.   I'm hoping to get back into my groove now.  All is well, I just needed to prioritize a few things in my life, and once again this blog moved to the back burner.
On to better things!  Today, I am sharing a few of my favorites which also happen to be a few things that we've been up to lately.


I signed up on LifeWay to start Beth Moore's newest study, Entrusted.  We are studying 2 Timothy.  My bible study group takes the summer off from doing a study together because of everybody's crazy schedules, so I thought I'd jump in and try one by myself.  I'm always surprised when a study hits home and is exactly just what I needed.


My friend Melissa came across this shirt, and bought it for me.  I love it, and her!  It's fun when you're friends know you so well.  :)  Gilmore Girls and coffee... yes, Ma'am!


Camping season is in full swing over here and we are loving it.
Morning coffee

Games for everyone.

And a little fishing.  You wouldn't know by her outfit that this was the middle of June.  Crazy Montana weather.

When camping, we want easy and quick meals that don't consist of hot dogs.  We made this one night and I'm not even sure what you'd call it.  We cooked up steak, onion, potatoes, and sweet peppers.  A little seasoning and we were done.  We had everything cut up ahead of time except for the potatoes.  It was so simple and so good.


Jesse went up to stay with Dan's parents for the week so he could attend a basketball camp.  I love that my kids have opportunities to go and do fun things, but what I love even more is having my family all under one roof.


Dan and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary on June 16th.  I believe that every year is one to be celebrated.  Marriage isn't always easy or pretty, but it's definitely a blessing and one that I'm thankful for.

Okay, that's it for today.

Hello Friday!

 Hello Friday!

We've had a busy little week around here.  The kids last day of school was on Wednesday, and we are loving our new relaxed schedule.


My #1 favorite today is my Mom.  Today is her birthday, so she tops the list!

Happy Birthday, Mom!


Last weekend we went up to Kalispell and got the kid's new bikes.  With the nice weather arriving, we're encouraging them to be outside more.  #newbikesforthewin


My niece came back for a visit, and I got to meet my newest great nephew.  He is the calmest, sweetest baby.  He was content to let me sit and hold him until my arms ached.  I loved every minute!


My graduates...  I claim these girls as my own, and fortunately they haven't figured out how to get rid of me.  ;)  They've invited me to visit them at their dorms, and said I can go to the college parties with them, so they aren't trying to get rid of me too hard.  ;)

 Such sweet girls!


Speaking of graduates... here's a little humor for you.
You're welcome!  ;)
