Friday Favorites - What made you happy this week?

What a great week - if a bit weird. We are all in different cities & places. Still, lots to be happy about as I reflect on the week's events.
  • Pat coming home from the hospital. YAY. And it has been really nice to get to cook for him and Mom. Missing my kitchen though! I've been thinking lots about the ingredients I always have on hand & my favorite weeknight meals - will share next week.
  • Your comments. The comments I've gotten this week from hoppers & new readers (especially those on the endangered species of stylish moms) totally cracked me up. And I wish I could respond more effectively! This post from The Type A Housewife really resonated - some good tips in her comments that I will try to incorporate.
  • Caroline having her first sleep over with Cousin Sofia. No separation anxiety for her! I will be hearing more about big girl beds for sure. Any tips on making the transition? We've been stalling for forever now.
I'll be sharing my favorite links from the week tomorrow so I hope you can come back and visit over the weekend!

Now your turn. What made you happy this week? Leave me a comment ... you know how those make my day!

I'm visiting from The Girl Creative! It's awesome to see you reflect on the "Happiness" of your week!

I'm happy to see my kids play with each other and enjoy each other's company. I hope my kids are the best of friends when they are older.

Have a happy weekend!
Love, Brenda

Hi Stephanie,

I'm coming through the Frugal Fridays blog hop and following you now.

The thing that made me happy this week was having dinnertime conversations with my kids.

My 11 year-old son finally told me that he wants to get into woodworking. I am so excited about that. I homeschool so I have been wondering what I could introduce to him. Now, I have some direction with him. :)

We started out Sharky with his big boy bed by showing him another fun thing about it...doubles as a trampoline!!! He only jumped on it for one day, and quickly realized it was for sleeping :) Good luck

What a cute picture! Aww. :)

Thanks for the mention. I still find myself frustrated over the commenting thing--I'm hoping that when Blogger rolls out all those promised changes this year, more WP-like comments are included. Otherwise, I'm jumping ship!

Pat says what made him happy this week was "Coming home and feeling all the love from my fam!" Also watching Sofia and Caroline head off together on their first "sleep over"! As for me, I am so very happy and thankful that Pat is home and doing well...I am also thankful for the great care he recieved from the excellent physicians and nurses at Baptist Hospital. And last but not least, my loving, caring family continue to be my happiness.

I guess what made me happy this week is that I SURVIVED IT! :-)

Stopping by from Bloggy Moms. Following you now with GFC under the name Tillmanator. I don’t need a blog follow but I would appreciate a “like” at my FB page:

Please make sure to “like” when signed in as a person rather than as a page. It doesn’t count if it’s not a person.

What made me happy this week was watching Sofia and her cousin Caroline have so much fun together. I'm happy they'll get to grow up together and share so many fun experiences. As a stranger told us, they are our sweet "chocolate and vanilla girls!"

Loving the sleepover pic! They are too cute! My older two had a really easy time transitioning to a big bed. The third, not so much. Wondering how it'll go with #4 :)

My 2-yr old's first potty-poop made me happy this week! And surviving my daughter's 3-day field trip with daddy gone as a chaperone, leaving me to take on the other 3 all by my lonesome... success = happy :)

I am new follower... loving your blog so far :) Would be flattered if you'd check me out, too!
