A Random Collection of Thoughts { 7 Quick Takes }


There are a few random, unrelated thoughts I've been meaning
 to share with you, my friends, 
and so I thought I'd gather 'em all  together into a Quick Take wrap.
Really quick, 'k?
Here goes~

New, not to be missed book ~


Mom, friend, author, encourager,
 creator of Five Minute Fridayblogger extraordinaire, Lisa Jo Baker
has  NEW book out!
Never Unfriended is her latest and wow, am I proud to be
on the launch team for the already  - bestseller!



In her own unique honest, warm style
Lisa Jo shares personal stories and 
practical tips to help us engage in  powerful relationships in 
this engaging book that I can NOT put down!

Okay, I never actually announced, 
<other than posting a comment in the actual post >

My good friend, Emily, of Under Mary's Mantle
can go ahead and watch her sweet son's baseball games in
a War Room t shirt.
Em, thanks for putting up with the late announcement
and thank you to all who entered and shared the giveaway at my

Birthday fun!

Yup yesterday marked another trip around for me!
My friends and my boys < hubby and sons >
certainly made me feel very special!


Birthday morning French toast, before my son went to school!
He does make the best French toast around.
Really!

 Cuteness!

Honestly, who knew guinea pigs were just so darn lovable,
cuddly and raging with personality??



       

It's a good thing they're cute, because boy are they messy!
Ha!

A to Z Blogging Challenge


I'm actually already getting nervous about the April blogging venture 
and it hasn't even begun yet!
yikes
LAST year  was the first time I took the a to z challenge
 and low and behold.......
I was able to pound out a post for every day!
WOOHOO!
It definitely stretched my writing muscles and

my creativity.
So here we go again.
And if life gets in the way and I just can't finish,
I'm giving myself forgiveness to just throw in the towel.
