Untitled design(3)

I am excited to have my first giveaway! I recently turned 50 so this is my own Blog Birthday Party.

I have two prizes…the first being a $50 Target gift card. The second the book “Devotions for a Healthier You” by Katie Farrell.

These are two of my favorite things right now. Target, well, you know! Ha. And this book by The Dashing Dish because I am enjoying following her recipes and this devotion book is just the right amount of devotion for the day without going on and on. You know what I mean?

June Favorites

My June favorites were really easy this month since June is my birthday month. I got so many awesome gifts. I feel truly blessed.

I have to admit turning 50 was a bit tough on me. My physical body doesn’t feel any different, but I think that I am more critical of myself. I think my skin looks dry, I need a new hair style, I need to lose 20 pounds…do my hands looks dry?! I mean all this couldn’t have happened overnight!

I talk myself down of the ledge and tell myself I’m awesome. I am fearfully and wonderfully made and my assurances come from the Lord and my family. No more comparing myself to others and magazine covers.

After all I’m old enough to be over all that, right?!!

My daughter and son-in-law added two more bracelets to my collection. H.M. Willow  I wear one or a combination almost everyday of the week. She routinely puts some on sale and that’s when I swoop in.

Weekend Wanderings Episode 4

Weekend(1)Well, hellooooo Summer! Someone walked by the thermostat and gave it a bump or two. I thought this year I was just going to breeze on through and pretend I lived in San Diego or something. Seriously, the weather up here is beautiful and I’m just being a big baby.

Mr. D and I have a vacation planned soon and I am excited to visit a few new places across the country and share them with you.

We have lived here in the Minneapolis area for two years now and just recently discovered Calhoun Square. It is a shopping area that has some great shops and places to eat. These umbrellas are the coolest thing ever! It made my mind go crazy thinking of what you could do for different events with them.

Healthy Snacks

We can all use some healthy snacks in our lives. I pulled some that look fun for little hands if you have kids. I am going to try all of these and stock my refrigerator up a bit…you can never have enough around my house!cheesy broccoli tater totsCheesy Broccoli Tater Tots ~ My mom used to make us tater tots when we were little (I think they came out when I was young, showing my age now) and while they taste pretty good I’m certain they are not the best for you. These look delicious and I am thinking some chicken fingers along side of these will make me feel like a kid again.
