Just Some Things!

Numbers, I’m going to use numbers this time. It just seemed like a number using kind of day.
  1. The Down Home Taco Casserole recipe is now posted on my cooking blog. This was voted the most wanted out of all the recipes during my Gooseberry Patch book giveaway.
  2. Friday Funnies is taking a break during the Summer. It will be back in a couple of months and you can always go back into the archives and check out some past funnies. They are still funny no matter how many times you read or watch them. Did you know that I’ve been doing Friday Funnies for almost 3 years now?
  3. We ate our first squash and zucchini the other day for dinner. It was so yummy.

  5. This past Monday my BFF Kathy and  I got to meet a fellow blogger Nan for the first time in real life. We had a blast thrifting. I will get to meet two more bloggers really soon too. I think it’s so neat that when we finally meet in person it isn’t awkward in any way. It’s just like we’ve “known” each other for years. Which we kind of have.
  6.  the girls
  7. I got these cute signs off of Craigslist the other day to go in my kitchen. I’m doing sort of a retro type theme. Aren’t they cute? One day I’ll be done and reveal the whole thing to you.

  9. I obviously don’t know how to put in pictures and use numbers at the same time! LOL! I’m all off track now. But that being the least of my worries, I’ll move on.
  10. Last week my super duper hubbalicious installed some cabinets that he had leftover from some he had gotten off of Craigslist for the garage, in my craft room/office. I needed more storage in there! Thanks honey!!

  12. I’ve been eating Dove chocolates just to read the cute little sayings they have inside. Really! 

Well I guess that’s enough for you to ingest in one day. I don’t want you getting a tummy ache!
What’s going on in your neck of the woods?


  1. Yeah I can finally leave a comment..man blogger was so messed up for days!!

    Love the retro pictures can't wait to see the kitchen!!

    yah..yah..yah..about the chocolates and the reading...girl who do you think we are?...lol

    I will miss the Friday Funnies but I do understand.

    Hugs and squeezes...Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

  2. Hi! This is Kelly from I've Become My Mother. I hope this is the first time I commented regarding this. We have a dear friend whose daughter needs a bone marrow transplant - Could you please share her story on your blog, Facebook, and Twitter. Your prayers are very much needed... Thank you so much!

  3. Fun list...you have been busy. Love the retro signs...just begs for a photo shoot don't you think? I'm hoping to check out Craig's list some this summer. I'm ready to get my craft back on. Only one more day and then...school's out for summer!!!! And of course there's that little thing called Rachel's graduation tomorrow night, but I'm trying not to think about it. Ha! Have a blessed day!

  4. Your son's expression cracks me up. Maybe I'm mingling what I know of my boys' attitudes towards squash, but I'm imagining him saying, "Hurry up and take the picture. Now, can I go see how they splat on the driveway?"

  5. Totally CUTE signs! Love 'em. I must admit to being jealous of your lovely veggies. I have decided to forgo a garden this year as my farm is over run with goats. Next year I will be better prepared... I hope.

  6. I like how you think, Kim. I think we could be related. I'm very random too. Love eating Dove chocolates just for the sayings inside. Be blessed! :)

  7. There are sayings inside Dove chocolates??? Obviously, my attention has been elsewhere. 8-} LoveDove!

    Lovin' your veggies! Duller hasn't had a lot of time for soil improvement this year. And it needs a LOT of improvin'!

    I would've grabbed those signs in a heartbeat! Our craigslist right now is full of departing college students' furniture... that mom & dad bought and is too much trouble to move. Most think they're in possession of Solomon's treasures. ;)

    Your DH is definitely a keeper! What a sweet thing to do!

    Love ya loads, list lady!
    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  8. How wonderful that you are meeting bloggy friends in real life. I've had that happen a couple of times by accident before and it was really awesome. What was really amazing is that they were people who had never commented but they recognized me. Crazy fun!

  9. Super cute signs my friend!! Love the list! Um, I noticed you said something about Dove chocolate on FB the other day and by my calculations - you ate chocolate in the *morning*. LOL!

    So does that mean that Friday Funnies are already on break or you will go on break in Summer? 'Cause in my world, it's not Summer yet. :) I hear ya on taking a break - it felt good to stop Choco Fridays. Of course now you'll keep finding great things to post for Friday Funnies - LOL!

    Big you-sure-those-cabinets-are-gonna-be-enough-in-your-craft-room-'cause-I-predict-they-will-be-full-shortly-'cause-you're-a-crafty-wonder-woman size hugs to you! Love ya!!

  10. Thanks for the recipe. Looks good! Good idea to break from FF; you do an excellent job hosting, by the way!

    Love ya,

  11. LOVE the retro pics Kim! Can't wait for the reveal!
    Thank you for doing such a great job on FF so far! Taking a break is a good thing :)

    Happy Friday my friend! Love ya!

  12. I LOVE those signs! VERY cute!! Love the new shelves, too. Man, I am SO in need of more storage. Is it weird if I have shelf-envy?? ;)

  13. Wow, that was an action-packed post! Numbers worked for you, LOL!

  14. I love the pictures too. Can't wait to see the reveal!

  15. Kim I am jealous over those veggies, I lost half of the garden. We have this realy bad weed called alligator weed took over. One tomato made it but my gosh it is growing so slow.
    I just meant one of my other blog friends looks like her children will be joining the orchestra my children are in. You, Kathy and I should meet up adventurally. Ever come this way to the beach give me a shout.

  16. Aww, I'm sorry to see Friday Funnies is taking a break :( Of course I didn't realize and have been doing Friday Funnies all along. :) LOL Have a great summer!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
