It's about love, it's about compassion, it's about kindness, and faith. It has nothing to do with luck. You get what you give…

So give good.

Friend Makin' Monday: My Daybook

This week's theme for ae filkin's
Friend Makin' Monday is "My Daybook."

I just love these things.

So, here we go!

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...
It's dark, and I can see the Christmas tree lights on the backdoor neighbor's tree.

I am thinking...
about a lot of things-- my mind is racing.

I am thankful...
for my handsome husband and my precious puppy.

I am praying...
for Haiti, for my family.

I am reading...
Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. It's so interesting!
Also, magazines and blogs.
I will be reading my lovely mother-out-laws new blog.
She's wonderful!

I am creating...
a cozy, warm home for my mini family :)
I'm always creating something,
I don't think I'm happy otherwise.

From the kitchen...
I can smell homemade dirty rice in the slow cooker.

Around the house...
It's quiet--
the tv is on and the puppy is sleeping.

One of my favorite things...
[or four, haha]
hugs and kisses from handsome husbee and Buddy!
getting things in the mail
a good song on the radio
a good recipe

A few plans for the rest of the week...
I'm going to the commissary tomorrow
and E's birthday is this week,
so I have to plan for that too!

My Life, from {Army} Brat to Wife


  1. Nothing like fun snail mail! Happy FMM!

  2. Love getting mail and dirty rice in the crockpot sounds yummy! Would love the recipe. Hope you have a great week! Happy FMM!

  3. What a cool idea... I love it! Happy birthday to E and have fun at the commisary :o)!

    I gave you an award over on my blog! Have a great week!

  4. I finally bit the bullet and drove right past the ever so close and convinient Walmart to go to the Commissary. SO WORTH IT. I probably save about $20. And in our family, that's worth it!!
    I'd love to have that dirty rice recipe.. sounds good!
