My 100th Post!! It's Friday Favs!!

Happy Friday and Happy 100th post to me!
I never imagined when I began Words of Me Project I'd be 47 followers strong, meeting some of the most inspirational women ever and writing like crazy. Makes me so very HAPPY! I am grateful to each one of you that takes time out of your day to stop by and say "Hi". I appreciate YOU!

To say THANK YOU and to CELEBRATE I have a goodie bag ready to give away.

Lots of journaling stuff here...
A full set of journaling cards from Webster's Designs. These have a beautiful botanical theme. The cutest mini journal{Emma picked out}, a mini chipboard album from Jenni Bowlin Studios, Fancy Pants journaling and quote cards, Chipboard punch-outs from Colorbok and a set of idea cards {the perfect place to write down your layout ideas}.

All you have to do to win is leave a comment below!! And remember...I ALWAYS stop by for a visit!! I love being inspired by you.:)

Now on with my Friday Favs...

1. See what my sweet Emma is up to...

She is running for Student Council President of the Middle School! I am so proud of her and really think she has an excellent chance of winning. Her and her friend Maddie made this pass along cards after school yesterday. Too cute:)

2. My family and I are really enjoying the show "Flash Forward" on ABC. Started watching it last fall and we can't get enough. Catch it Thursdays at 7pm cst.

3. My darling Mom took me to another Dinner Show in Kansas City on Wednesday. The play was a comedy starring John Davidson. I am so grateful we get to do this.

{btw, I could really tell in this photo I have lost weight in my face!!}

4. I am crazy for this!!!

Vanilla tea is my FAVORITE...but since I don't drink tea anymore {just herbal} I haven't had it in 4 years. Imagine how delighted I was to find this in my local grocery store a few weeks ago. It is delicious iced!! Here's what the Celestial Seasonings website has to say about this yummy blend:

“Vanilla lovers, rejoice! We’ve added the creamy, nutty flavor of rich vanilla to Sleepytime’s beloved blend of floral chamomile, cool spearmint and lively lemongrass. With its comforting aroma and perfectly balanced flavor, Sleepytime Vanilla is an exquisitely soothing new way for you to wind down your day.”
— Charlie Baden, Celestial Seasonings Blendmaster Since 1975

Why not try some and while your at it stop by their fun website.

5. Tuesday night is my TV night for sure.The Biggest Loser inspires me to continue on my weight loss journey while I watch American Idol for pure entertainment. This gal is my favorite and I think will win....

Crystal Bowersox. AMAZING!

6. So grateful for my friend Kristin and her sweet daughter Audrey. I look forward to our daily walk and talks. Don't know what I  would do without them!!

And finally...

7. I am sooooo very, very happy I purchased Becky Higgins "Project Life" last January!!

There you have a few of my favorite things this week.

Oh and before I's a layout I created this week. Love it!

It's 12x12. I used a 5x7 photo with lots of fun embellishments. We were on a ride at "Lagoon" in Utah. A favorite memory of mine:)

Sure would love to hear about your Friday favorites AND don't forget to leave a comment to win some really cool journaling products.


  1. I woul dlove to win you little goodie bag full of neat stuff {{wink, wink}} PICK ME!!!!...hmmmm...okay maybe that wasn't so suttle huh? Oh well....

    First off you look AMAZING!...aand not a day over 29!

    Tell Emma good luck for me, I will be pulling for her to win! Middle School has been so much fun for us. THey really begin to break free and learn to be their own person. It is so awesome to watch your child grow and achieve!

    Have a wonderful weekend girlie!

  2. Oh, I'm so glad I found you and soooo hope you inspire me to get my self back into scrapbooking. Your layouts are lovely. I still have the best of intentions and my scrapping area still stands ready....but very lonely. Pictures pile up. Albums get dusty. Soon they will all be gone. When they were younger, I wuold scrap late at night and then leave their books at their places and over breakfast they wuold look through the whole album. Maybe soon I can have them at their places when they all come home from college.

  3. How cute! I hope Emma wins! :) And Happy 100th post to you! :)

  4. Ok Les...I am inspired to get back on my scrapbooking that I have let slide for some unknown reason this last year...I wanna see the pix of that "project life" looks cute! Happy 100th...
