These are a few of my favorite things...

Yes, I know...you now have that song stuck in your head.  You're welcome!

Just a snippet of a few new things you will find around my home that put a smile on my face.



My new Coton Colors God is great platter.  Every time I see it I can't help but remember my childhood.  This was the prayer we said before every meal.  Of course, by the time we were teens it was a competition to see who could say it the fastest or shorten it the most.  I grew up with 3 brothers...food was a priority! LOL


My Happy Everything plate.  Yes, I know I am jumping the gun with the Thanksgiving turkey.  Need to order the sweet little jack-o-lantern for this month (the store was out).  


My Target bar cart.  This is by far one of my most favorite recent finds.  At $130...you cannot beat the quality for the price.  Right now I have it styled very simply.  I am a less is more kinda gal, and I hate to dust!!! Just saying.  This piece fits right in with our Pottery Barn furniture, it looks that high end!


A recent find while shopping with baby girl.  Yes, my girls now eat more than chicken nuggets.  But, there were many years that that was ALL they would eat.  We only went to restaurants that had them on the menu.  And, if I were to be honest...#1 is still a chicken finger and fries kinda gal.  (Love ya Elie!!)


I think every mom needs one of these, or two, or a dozen, or...you get the point!  My new prayer box.  #2 got another version that was super cute as well.


Inside is the sweetest message, note paper and a little pen for jotting down those worries, prayers, concerns.  I am glad He is handling them for me!!!

I hope everyone is having a great week.  Can't believe it is Wednesday already and we are half way through the month of October (and no, I am not even going there...despite the fact that every store I have walked in lately seems to scream...Christmas is just around the corner).

We are headed to our home away from home tomorrow...the great state of Texas.  Nothing beats Baylor's Homecoming Parade!!!

Hopefully I can share pics along the way...if this not so tech savvy mom can figure out how to load pics to my ipad then publish them!  Wish me luck.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!!

I have the Happy Everything plate, but mine is all the different colors of polka dots. Love it! It was a gift from my best friend {she had one, too}. But seeing your reminded me that it's nearly two weeks to Halloween and I haven't even put my pumpkin out!! I'm still sporting the football for opening day of football season! Have fun in Texas! We were just there last weekend. We took our 8 year old to the American Girl store and at at the Bistro! Fun times!!

OK that prayer box is just adorable....can I ask where you found it? I may use them as stocking stuffers for my girls.

Also LOVE your bar cart....I would love to have one but don't have a place for one anywhere :( I think you have styled it perfectly!

I am in love with your bar-cart! I also love your curtains. Did you make them yourself? I think I need a prayer box too. We said the same grace at dinnertime when I was a child.
