I'm taking the challenge of writing a list of the 99 things I love.

Jenny Louise Marie Hello friends!  I was reading a blog recently, Sizzling Toward Sixty  and stumbled upon this post.  In it Sue talks about taking a challenge to write a list of 99 things she loves.  Although intimidated at first, she did it.  I loved the idea of taking some time to think of all the things that I love and am grateful for.  Isn’t it funny how when you really stop and think you realize how much you already have in life?  I know I take a lot for granted.  I’m happy to have put in writing some things that I love. 99 Things IRead More →

Wednesday Wonderings - stuff that's on my mind and making me go hmm...

Jenny Louise Marie Hello friends.  I don’t mind sharing that even though it’s Wednesday it feels like it should be Friday.  I guess at this time of year, with summer just a breath away, we all have been worn a little thin.  The days seem very long.

Jenny Louise Marie Hello there friends!  I’m so glad you’re here.  It’s been a busy week around here.  I am happy to be just one more day away from the weekend.  Do you have plans?  My youngest is celebrating a birthday on Saturday and we’ll be visiting Mr. LouiseMarie’s mom to celebrate Mothers Day with her.  Youngest son has requested that we go out to dinner for a “nice” dinner.  When we asked him where he might like to go he said, just not fast food.  Some place where you sit down and they wait on you.  Clearly he has not set the bar high.Read More →

Jenny Louise Marie Ladies, can we have a real, honest conversation?  Today I want to discuss gifts for the teacher – the ones teachers really want.  I know that Teacher Appreciation Week is approaching in a few short weeks, and many of you are trying to come up with adorable gifts for your little one to take to his/her teacher.  Well, let me help you with this task.  After all, you don’t really KNOW this teacher.  It’s hard to figure out something good, right?  I know exactly what the teacher really wants. I remember the days when I searched high and low for an adorableRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie   Today, I’m joining Joyce  for a little q&a fun.  I found her as I was hopping around blogosphere and thought this would be fun.  So here goes…   1. What is one area of your life where you’re a perfectionist? Is that a good thing?​ Is everything an official area?  Sadly, I strive for perfection way too much….& sadly, I fall short every time.  But hey, that doesn’t stop me from trying. Is it a good thing?  Depends on who you ask.  Mr. Louise Marie would say no for sure.  It makes his honey dos much harder.   2. What’s something youRead More →
