Fab Five ... Week ending July 11, 2009

Okay, so I'm transitioning everything to my other blog (slowly) and this is the next thing to go ... so, you can find this week's Fab Five at Pleasing to You!

You can follow me there if you are not already doing so! Would love to have you join me as I pursue a life that is pleasing to God ... based on Psalm 19:14 "May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to You, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer!"

Fab Five ... Week ending June 27, 2009

Okay, in fairness, this week is going to be the Especially Fab Eleven!!

In honor of my brothers and me who are gathered together without the funeral impetus it normally requires and in age order ...

1. Tim, the older of my two little brothers, who is so dang funny.
2. Heath, the youngest of us three, who is way smarter than me but I love him anyway.

(Okay, in fairness, they are both dang funny & way smarter than me ...)

3. Beth, my sistah, who I could not love more if we were blood kin. For years I wished for a sister and now I have an amazing one!
4. Gwynn, the oldest of the girl cousins, who is so quick-witted!
5. Malcolm, who has the sweetest spirit.
6. Jeffie Jean, Casiday's twin cousin, who is beautiful and helpful and a joy to be around.
7. Daniel, who is so very creative.
8. Little Heath, whose smile is precious - especially with those two missing teeth!
9. Terry, who is adorable and has learned that the water is not all bad since we've arrived.
10. Paulee, who is the cutest thing I have ever seen!
11. Anderson, who is so happy and easy and just watches the action.

What a precious gift to get to spend time with my brothers and their family!! I love you all so very much!!!

Fab Five ... week ending June 20, 2009

Short but sweet this week ...

1. Living close to the beach! We had a great day Friday at the beach with Casiday & two of her friends.

2. New opportunities! God has been opening doors for me and I am so thankful for the exciting new things I am getting to do (like lead an online Bible study on Pleasing to You!).

3. Encouraging friends! I have some amazing women who inspire and encourage me ... and are the kind of friends who push me to step out of my comfort zone and take risks.

4. The Cheesecake Factory! I love this place ... one of my favorite places to eat. Had the best margherita pizza there this week . And of course, the requisite cheesecake! Yum!

5. My Aunt Mollianne! I have the best family ... and I am blessed with many incredible women who have invested in me and loved me since I was little. This week, though, my Aunt Mollianne has been especially instrumental in encouraging me and my sister-in-law Beth in our new endeavors. I love you, Mollianne!!

A Fun Little Tagging Game

The two most important people in my life! Taken on Memorial Day this year on Jekyll Island, GA. I love this photo.

Okay, this one is fun! I love seeing everyone's pictures. So, since Michelle @ Lollypops & Lizards tagged me I am passing along this fun game to ....

Here's the rules!

The Rules:

1) Go to your photo files…Select the 6th photo folder

2) Select the 6th photo in that folder

3) Post that photo along with the story behind it.

4) Then challenge 5 blog friends to do the same!

Fab Five ... Week ending June 13, 2009

Summer has finally begun! Oh I know Casiday has been out of school for two weeks already. And in that two weeks we have made a trip to Alabama for Scott's 20th reunion, Casiday has been to children's camp and Scott & I went on our anniversary trip to Orlando.

But, even with that ... summer had not yet begun until now! See, we still had dance. Casiday loves dance and usually I do too. However, when her spring recital was not until June 13 ... that pushed my love to its limit!! :-)

Okay, that has nothing to do with my Fab Five post but I just needed to get it out there!!

Here goes ...

1. Watching my baby dance! She's not really a baby anymore but she's still my baby and watching her dance brings me such joy.

2. My sweet friend Natalie ... without her at the eternal dress rehearsal Friday night I think I would have a Frightful Five this week instead of Fab. Thanks, Natalie, for making me laugh!

3. Precious older girls who have encouraged and blessed my girl. Alyssa & Madelynne - thank you for encouraging Casiday in dance and life! Judy & Adrianne - thank you for ALL you have done to mold my 9-year-old into who she is! There are so many more who have been a blessing to me as they have connected with my child ... I am so thankful!

4. Dear friends who have encouraged me to write and keep writing. Pattie, Christina, Cyndie, Stacy, Lindsey, Karen ... thank you. Keep pushing me!!

5. New friends from blogworld. Wow! There are some amazing women who are writing relevant and interesting and hilarious blogs that make me laugh, think and even cry sometimes! Check out a few of these ... Like a Warm Cup of Coffee, Pajama Mama, PW - The Real Me, We are THAT Family, Joy in the Journey and so many more! Ladies, you are amazing and I am encouraged, cahllenged, and inspired every time I read ... EVERY time!
