Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Y'all!
Just sharing a few things that have made me smile this week and maybe you will too. 


This free printable at One Thousand Oaks is just perfect for patriotic decor. 


We rented The Last Word last night and loved it. Shirley MacLaine is in the movie and that is the only reason you need to watch it.




The backsplash was installed in our kitchen this week. I just can't describe how happy we are with it. In about two weeks we'll be moving.




The florals and photos at Jan's blog knocked my socks off.


I got lost in this website for awhile the other day. Can not wait!!


Looking forward to the Memorial Day weekend. We have no special plans but I'm sure we can change that. 


Hope you have a great weekend.  :)

I'm All Ears! - Podcasts

Y'all know that I love to read books and have shared quite a book reviews over the past few years. Sometimes we go through spells where there's just not much time to sit and read though. Recently, I discovered podcasts. Am I the last one? That's possible and that's ok.

Today I thought I'd share a few that I've been enjoying....

Update on Building Our Forever House - Part 3 - It's Getting Pretty

Hi friends!

I'm sharing a string of photos today to bring you up-to-date on the building process. Building this house has been a dream come true for us. Our builder has been so great to work with and watching it all come together has us smiling every single day. Of course, there are more photos of the kitchen than anything because it's my favorite part.

French Country Style from the Foot of the Rockies

Hi Friends! Today is my favorite day of the month where I get to share a First Friday Home Tour. I love to attend home tours and I love to peek in windows...well not literally but maybe. :)

Today I'm sharing the home of Pat at 




Pat embraces her love of French country and fills her home with treasures found here and there. I love reading her stories of coming across wonderful things for her home or garden. She's even been known to rescue pretty things from the alley!

Building a House from the Ground Up Part 2

My how time flies when you are building a house and yet it drags too. I'm sharing a stream of photos from the last couple of months showing the construction progress. This really has been a dream and it's because of our builder and his team. We have had a wonderful foreman who oversees everything that happens. The weather has cooperated and all of this has happened on schedule. What more could you want?

Slightly South of Simple - A Fantastic Book!

Life has been unusually crazy here with us lately. Building a house and moving family members makes for head spinning busy-ness. In all of this though, I have taken time recently to read the best book!  Last year I had the wonderful opportunity to read Kristy Woodson Harvey's book Lies and Other Acts of Love
When the chance to read her new book popped up I had to say yes please!  I'm sure you all have seen pictures of  Kristy's wonderful book Slightly South of Simple popping up on social media.  You can't ignore the beachy cover because it's that time of year when we are all gathering great summer reads. 
When a story line includes the south, strong women, and love...I'm all for it!
