friday/ saturday smiles

I started this post on friday, but life got away from me.

so here ya go..

happy friday, friends.

this will be an abbreviated version of friday smiles.

1~ I’ve had a bit of a rough week over all, and am beyond grateful for those who reached out to me in one from or another. It’s really made me special and loved.

so YOU.. you are making me smile this week. and thank you immensely for that ❤

I love that I have friends all over the country who really know me so well 🙂

when I was in YTT we discussed the ‘ inner connection cord’ that yo have with certain people. Like when you are thinking about them and then they call or email out of the blue ? 

yeah.. I really like that 🙂

2~ Fenway’s pet squirrels.

yup. it’s true. we have a family of squirrels that live in the most amazing tree in the back yard.

and they taunt Fenway.  And Fenway taunts them. for hours.

the squirrels will chirp down to her, run halfway down the tree, then she will try to ‘ jump’, and they will bolt back up the tree, then come down on the other side, where she will run, and they will chirp and run back up the tree

they do this for HOURS



have I mentioned that these are naughty squirrels?


3~ my mistakes..on my facebook page I set up a little food challenge… and quinoa was one of my ingredients ( and fave foods, btw)

so I got my recipe all prepped for a quinoa salad, cook the quinoa


discovered it was millet .

Why do I have millet? I haven’t a clue.

So as soon as I’m dine with this post, I’m hopping on my bike ( remind me to show you a picture of this beauty) and getting me some quinoa so I can share my recipes.

5~ this video

I came across it yesterday when I was looking for something else.  It made me smile

my 14 seconds of fame 🙂

AND.. my BIGGEST smile comes from a west- bound plane tonight that is bringing a very special girl to me 🙂

SQUEALL!!!  it’s been almost 4 weeks, and I miss her. I’ll have 6 short days with her until I drop her off for her freshman year of college.


she looks ready, doncha think?


happy weekend friends!


  1. Ummm seriously adorable little hunter you have there! Gus LOVES squirrels and wants to play with every single one he sees. Unfortunately he never seems to be quick enough for those furballs.


  2. I love your blog! and I love you!
