These are a few of my favorite things...

Y'all know that I love me a good link-up.  Hallie over at Moxie Wife has been doing the Five Favorites for a bit now.. and it's so fun!  So, I thought I would join for the first time today!

(nothing is actually capitalized... weird, right?!)
Ok, yes... this thing is 80 bucks. I know. For a dish rack, Jen?  Seriously?  But, are you saying that because you have a dishwasher??  Well, I don't have one of those lovely machines.  So, I researched the best and spent a little more money on just a dish rack.  And, I am ok with that.  Even though it does leave water spots, the ingenious water draining system and look of the thing make up for it.  I always smile when I see it there on the counter.  Yes, the dish rack.  Makes me smile... annnnnnd maybe even allows me to enjoy doing the dishes. justalittlebit.


Being new to Florida... I have found out many-a-thing.  One of those things... these really awesome Tervis cups-ahem-tumblers (who knew they were called that? I didn't. Thanks to their website I am not well informed).
Tom, Mart and the Babe got me my very first one for Easter.
I love it.
It keeps hot things hot. Cold things cold. No sweating.
And they have a lifetime guarantee. Awesome, right?? 

I can't get enough of these things.  They are like a drug, and I think I might be addicted.  I pop a gazillion at night when I am working.



I mean... this is pretty self explanatory, right?!
I was able to talk to a good friend who is still in Honduras.
I can get an almost hug from my mom.
See how big my niece is getting.
Say hi to Morgan, halfway across the world.

Technology... I love you.

New to me blogs:

Brianna at Just Showing Up!
She talks about all sorts of things, but I am most inspired by her and her hubby's choice to adopt some littles, two who have Down's.

Young, single Catholic lady who writes super well. :) 
Also, all about the New Evangelization.

That's about it over here.
Go check out all the fun and maybe you'll find your new faves! :)


  1. I heart FaceTime and Skype, but my mom is a technophobe (computers, not music, though that's probably not her cup o tea either...). I do wish she would face her fears and jump on board so we could see her more often and she could see the babies. She's in Oregon and we are in Michigan, so that doesn't happen too often. With her getting older, it's even more sad/worrisome. Ah well...

    Oh, and we don't have a dishwasher either, but neither do we have counter space for such a fancy contraption! I am, however intrigued as I like that brand of home products....

    Have a wonderful rest of your week!

    1. I know what you mean. My grandmother has jumped on board with Skype. She isn't the most savvy either, but over time she has gotten better. She even called ME the other day. I was so impressed, I can't even tell ya. :) Maybe keep encouraging your mom and she will get there!

      I love my dish rack... it really is great. It does take up a quite a bit of space, but it's in a corner, so it's not so horrible. :) Have such a great week, too!

  2. You can make sparks with the wintergreen Lifesavers if you chomp down on them!

    1. Whaaaaaaat?! I didn't know that. I will have to try that out! I will let you know how it goes. :)

  3. I like that the tumbler doesn't sweat. I'll have to check that out. :-)


Hey! You just read that. Don't you wanna leave me some love?!
