Friday Favs

Howdy, girls! It's been a few days...And while I haven't posted I have been visiting your blogs and commenting. I just love sharing the comment love, don't you? I mean it is so important, that we as bloggers support one another. I know I have said it before but I feel the need to share it again....

I appreciate you taking time out of your day to read Words of Me Project. I hope I inspire you in some way. Thank you so much for the comments, too. They make my day and I enjoy reading what you have to say!!:)

We had a WONDERFUL visit with Kam and his darling wife Abby. It was too, too short but we crammed a bunch into the day. Visiting, a movie and Cosmic Bowling. We stayed up till 2 A.M.!!

Wednesday and Thursday I spent both days in bed with a HORRIBLE migraine. Anybody get those? Man oh was the worst. So grateful for Zomig and a caring husband.

Let's get to Friday Favs, shall we??

1. After waking up from migraine hell I felt the need to be outside. Decided to plant these...

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved pansies. They are so cute...look at their little faces:)

2. 80's music. I mean, I may have said it before but honestly I LOVE the 80's!!! We have satellite radio and the 80's channel is on  most afternoons. While I clean, blog, fold clothes,'s on! I love everything...

-Culture Club
Michael Jackson
Def Leppard
Tears for Fears
Simple Minds
Kool and the Gang
Motely Crue
Van Halen
Fine Young Cannibals
 Cliff Richard
The Go Go's
Belinda Carlisle
....the list goes on and on!!

My 80's music can take a ho-hum job and make it FUN!

3. I spend most of my afternoons alone. I cherish the solitude...

It allows me to reflect on my life. When it's all crazy and chaotic...I love that, too. But when it's just me in the house, working on a project or cleaning...I have time to think. Nine times out of ten I end up, lost in thought, replaying those moments that have meant the most to me. I am inspired by the time with just me.

4. I am loving this Documentary on "Woodstock".

Even though I was just 3 years old during this history making event I have always been fascinated by it...secretly wishing I would have been old enough to go. This documentary I've been watching just blows my mind. There were nearly a half a million people on just over 600 hundred acres of donated farmland. Check out these images...

Did you know there wasn't ONE serious altercation during the entire 3 days?! No fights, no shootings, no police involvement?! Amazing and so wouldn't happen today.

I told my husband I could have so been a hippie-LOL!!:) Anyway, for an interesting documentary...check this one out.

4. My last Friday Fav today is my writing. While I was so sick with my migraine I realized how much I LOVE it. I was in so much pain there was no way I could have sat at my computer and type...but yet, I was so itchy to do just that!! I am thankful for this thing called a Blog. I am thankful for all you talented women bloggers!!

Well, I am off to the chiropractor...part of my migraine is because my back and neck are out. Then packing for a weekend of fun in Kansas City. Em has a soccer tournament!!


  1. THE BEST Woodstock doc. out there...what do you mean coulda been? I AM...and there is still time! Hop on the bus sister!!!

  2. I LOVE big hair bands!

    Hope you are feeling better, have a super great weekend!

  3. Sorry to hear you had a migraine, stopping by from SITS to pass along some comment love!

  4. I am amazed how an adjustment helps so many different things that go wrong in the body!! I hope you're feeling better.

    I am a tulip girl myself. Tulips and Petunias! :) But I do love pansies too!! I need to plant some! What if I planted some before July this year? WOuldn't that be something? lol

    Oh and count me in on your 80's dance party! big fan!

  5. I am so glad I found you on SITS. I actually live in Kansas City!
    I truly love the 80's as well. That music was the best and I still can't help but dance when "Hit me with your Best Shot" comes on!

    Have a great weekend, raining today but supposed to stop soon and stay away until Sat. night, hopefully you will get the soccer games in!


  6. 80's was my year! Loved my big aqua net hair and colored hoops! Sorry to hear you had a migraine, I only had one in my life...I get sinus headaches but nothing in glad you stopped by:)!~

  7. I have heard of Marysville. I live in Shawnee, but I taught in North Kansas City for several years and a lot of my teacher friends went to college there. Isn't that NW Missouri State Bearcats?

  8. Oh, Les - I hope you are feeling better. While I don't have migranes, I know a number of people who do - and I know that are not an easy thing to live with :( I sure hope you are feeling better! Oh, and one more thing - just another reason why we get along so well, is that I am CERTAIN I was a hippie in a past life! LOVE that time - the music, the peace, the LOVE! Have a great weekend and get some rest, ok? (2AM?? You GO GIRL!)

  9. So sorry you had a migraine :( My Mother and Brother both suffer from those. Loved the list of 80's music- that took me back! ;)

  10. we have a long history of migrane suffering in our dad suffers the most and we have been in the hospital more times than I like to think about. I am so sorry you have to deal with that too.

    i love your writing style I always feel like I am reading a letter from a friend.

  11. Hope you had a great week-end and the migraines stayed away. Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Thanks for visiting my blog!! I hope your migraine is better; they're horrible, I know. I enjoyed your list!! The flowers are beautiful, and what a way to brighten your morning. I'm with you on 80s music - I was reading your list and saying yep, yep, yep. Thanks for bringing back such sweet memories!


I appreciate your thoughts and ideas...they inspire me!! I will be visiting you soon. Have a CREATIVE day!!
