Deb at Posted from Home was so kind to pass me this Sweet Friends Award. Thanks so much Deb!
The rules of the award are to :

  • Tag 10 bloggers that brighten your day
  1. Lexi's bright shiny smile
  2. cuddling with my animals
  3. blogging
  4. taking pictures
  5. cooking (I can't believe how much I have been enjoying it!)
  6. my morning coffee with fat free hazelnut creamer
  7. reading magazines and books
  8. naps and/or just sleeping in a bit in the morning
  9. Peach tea
  10. chocolate

I'm not going to pass the award on to anyone as many aren't doing awards or tags anymore, but I want any of you feel free to take the award. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.♥

Hi. Love your list. Things have gotten hectic here with some catching up on mother's things. I let a lot go when I was sick. Hope you have a great weekend. Love the header.

Darlene, even though I don't really "know" you, I think I've gotten to know you better and better through blogging. And you are a "Sweet Friend"! You know, you can pick up on people's personalities through their posts and comments, and I can certainly tell you're a very nice, caring, sweet person.

Congrats on your award! It definitely fits you. My list would almost mirror yours!

duchess said...

You are the perfect recipient for this award.
My list would have many of the same items on it as well.
Hope you enjoy your weekend.

Carol said...

Congrats, Darlene dear!! I agree with everything on your list!!!

Libby said...

You ARE a sweet friend! Your blog is always so pretty, the pictures, your sweet family, the recipes! I always look forward to reading it!
Have a great weekend!

Sue said...

Sure enjoyed reading your list. This is a great idea to copy (especially when you think you have nothing to blog about). Also, the menu for the week is great. I know that when I have my meals planned it makes dinner preparation so much easier. Wish I could say that I do this every week.

Hey Darlene! How are you today? Congratulations on the great certainly deserve this one...I think so. I like Hazelnut creamer too...I hate fat free stuff but drink it anyhoo. Wait till you see my post tomorrow! It snowed like crazy here for the last 24 hours....we actually couldn't go anywhere today! hubby built a fire...we watched cooking shows...I got to sew...all in all a perfect day! hahahaha.
I liked your list...and of course little Lexi is at the top of the list...quite understandable!!! Have a blessed weekend.

Life is good! said...

i think we would be great neighbors. i'm with you on your list! i just love sweet simple things! especially in this crazy day and age! have a great one!!!!!

dana said...

Ah, what a great list, Darlene! Thanks for your share.

I just read the post about your menu and recipes! I recall the days when I could feed my family yummy items like chili cheese dogs, etc. Sadly, it's just my hubby and I and we both have to watch fat and sodium intake. It was much more fun when we could have great tasting items like yours. I am going to check out the chicken fingers recipe and the potatoes. I have learned to adapt a lot of recipes. . . .those sound awesome.

Hope you and Lexi have a fun shopping trip!

L, Dana
