Jenny Louise Marie Hi there friends.  I’m so glad you stopped by to visit today.  First of all, it’s Wednesday ~ which means we are half way to the weekend!!  So, there’s that.  Also, it’s time for this week’s Hodgepodge questions.  If you’ve been around then you know the drill  Joyce from From This Side of the Pond throws out some random questions and we bloggers answer them.  It’s kind of fun because you never know what the questions will be and, it’s fun to get to know other people.   1. What title would you give this current chapter of your life? Seriously.  IRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hey!  How’s your week so far?  Right now I’m feeling pretty good.  My to-do list feels manageable and I’m not stressed out.  Did you grab any good deals on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?  I did.  Are any of you able to really just think of gift giving or do you mainly shop for yourself?  I lean more to the grabbing a good deal for myself category; however, I did snag some gifts.  So, today is Wednesday and that means it’s time to link up with From This Side of the Pond for this week’s Hodgepodge questions.  You know the drill.  JoyceRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hi there.  If you are new around here, welcome!  I’m so glad you are stopping by today.  You might be visiting because today is Hodgepodge day.  If you’re new around here, Hodgepodge day is the day where I join with other bloggers to answer the questions from From This Side of the Pond.  It’s kind of fun and random, but a great way to get to know each other.  So, without further ado, let’s get right to this week’s questions. 1.  In a rut, in a jam, in the groove, out of synch, off balance, out of touch…which saying best fits someRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hey there friends!  How is your week so far?  We’ve made it to hump day…that means it’s an easy downhill to the weekend.  My week has been full of meetings, running here and there, and putting in lots of miles on the bike. It’s a mystery to me how hard I can work out and still not have weight fall off!  Can anyone else relate?  It is so frustrating!  However, you’re not hear for that rant.  Today is Hodgepodge day.  The day where I link up with From This Side of the Pond and answer this week’s random questions.  However, my computerRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Holy Cow!  It’s Wednesday night (again) and that means it’s time to link up with From This Side of the Pond for this week’s edition of Hodgepodge.  I always wonder what each week’s questions will bring and if I’ll be able to come up with an answer.  At one point, I wanted to be clever in my answers.  Now, I just try to get them answered and posted on time. 🙂  Clever seems to be a bit out of reach currently.  In any case, I am happy to join in the fun and see how everyone answers these questions. 1. What’s somethingRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Good morning friends!  How are you?  I have to tell you, this Hodgepodge post almost didn’t make it.  It was almost deleted half way done because I couldn’t find the time to finish it.  Life is busy!  But, here I am linking up again for this week’s Hodgepodge with From This Side of the Pond.  Better late than never, right?   Anyway, it is Thursday and I am excited because that means it’s football night for son #3.  He is happy that he will be getting a lot of playing time and I will be holding my breath as he  tackles andRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hello friends.  How are you?  I am settling into a new year at school and feel like I have 1,832 things on my to-do list.  Between work, son #3’s football schedule, and trying to fit in time to post here, it’s go, go, go all the time!  It’s hard re-adjusting to this routine.  Still, there is something so hopeful about starting a fresh, new year.  Do you agree?  Anyway, it has been a while since I have participated in the weekly Hodgepodge from From This Side of the Pond.  I am happy to re-join in the fun.  If you’d like to checkRead More →
