Giving Thanks: What I'm Thankful For


Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. It is a time to Give Thanks and to reflect on what we are thankful for. However, we should always be thankful everyday not just one day out of the year. I like to make a list every year to remind myself just how blessed that I truly am. So here is what I am thankful for this year...

High Five For Friday

Hello everyone! Welcome to the weekly High Five For Friday linkup hosted by Tif @ Bright On A Budget, Katie @ Cup of Tea and myself. We're glad you're here!

This week's featured blogger is Jessica from Life, Love, Reality. Jessica is a wife and a mom of two beautiful little girls. She also works full time and is a soccer and basketball mom. She has been blogging for 9 years. Jessica blogs about the struggles of being a woman, wife, mom, friend and daughter now a days. She has a wonderful blog. Please stop by and say hello to Jessica. 

This has been a busy but good week. I'm so thankful that it is Friday. Please say a prayer for me as I take the written portion of my Praxis Exam today. I need to be able to pass the writing and math to be able to advance in the teaching program. Let's recap my favorites from this week.

1) I'm loving this photo of Raylan and his cousin's Noah and Morgan that was taken over the weekend. He hardly gets to see his cousins, so this photo is extra special. We had a surprise party for Noah's 18th Birthday. I only wish Jeremy was in the photo, but he had to work.

2) I visited a church that my cousin had invited me to on Sunday and I am so thankful that I did. It was such a wonderful experience. You could truly feel the presence of God in that service. I can't wait to go back. That service changed my life for the better. God is so good.

3) My day was made this week when I got my first Peppermint Hot Cocoa for the season. It was so good. Now, if McDonald's would hurry and get their Holiday Pies in.



4) This UK cake is by far one of my favorites that I have made. It was so much fun to make especially since I'm a huge CATS fan. Go Big Blue!


5) I absolutely adore this photo of Raylan when we were Christmas shopping this week. He just had to try on these boots. He looks like a real Cowboy for sure. 


Well that's it for me. I hope everyone has a blessed weekend and Thanksgiving. We really do have a lot to be thankful for. God is good.

Layered Chambray Look


It is officially cold in Eastern Kentucky. This past weekend was super cold, so it was definitely time to break out the sweaters and boots. It was actually even cold enough to wear layers, so that is exactly what I did.

8 Daily Things I Do With My Toddler



Being a mom is a tough job, especially a mom of a toddler.  It's by far the hardest job that I have ever had, yet the most rewarding. Being a Toddler Mom is definitely not for the faint of heart; however, I love the toddler ages. The toddler years are so much fun! I see my son learning something new every single day. I am simply amazed by everything that he knows. He is also maturing into his own little person with a teenage attitude. I enjoy spending time with Raylan and making memories with him. This truly is the best time. Here are 8 Daily Things that I Do With My Toddler.

This week's featured blogger is my good blogging buddy Mariah from Like Honey. Mariah is a wife and mom of two beautiful babies. She has a heart for Jesus and a passion for beauty and fashion. She loves to shop, sing, bake and all things vintage.  I love her recent post of her daughter Lucy's Big Girl Room and Gallery Wall. It is totally Pin worthy. It's absolutely beautiful. You can see that post here. She also has a great inspirational prayer post about a Prayer For Election Day. Please take time to read it. Don't forget to stop by and say hello to Mariah. You will love her blog. 

It's Veteran's Day! With Honor, Respect and Gratitude, Thank you Veteran's!

I hope everyone has had a great week. Please say a prayer for my husband and my dad. They have been very sick this week. This week has also been crazy busy for me.  I'm so glad it is finally the weekend. I hope to get some rest and relaxation. Let's recap my favorites from this week.

1) Last Friday, I promised Raylan that I would help him put up the Kissmas Tee (Christmas Tree) so that's exactly what we did. I wish I would have recorded him. It was so much fun watching him. He was so excited. He is definitely like his momma when it comes to the Holiday's. We love Christmas!



I love this photo of him helping put the ornaments on the tree.


2) On Saturday, Justin and I had a date night and watched Hacksaw Ridge. It is such a good movie. I love that it is Christian based. It is definitely a must see. It's one of the best movies that I have seen in a while.

3) I'm loving this photo of Raylan at Story Time this week. He was having so much fun dancing with the other kids. It's the first time that he has ever danced there, he was bashful all other times. I love how I captured this photo right in the moment of him dancing.


4) This has been a very busy week for baking. My dad and I always make pumpkin rolls every year to sell, but this week we wore ourselves out making them.We made 35 pumpkin rolls, so needless to say, we are exhausted. 

5) I've managed to get a little Christmas shopping done this week. Hopefully this way, I won't be so stressed. Have any of you started your shopping yet?


Thanks for linking up. Have a wonderful weekend. God Bless You!
