Friend Makin' Monday

Yes, Monday is here again.....my does time fly! This week our task is to list 10 of our favorite things...I definitely could go over 10 on this one! My favorites are listed in random order. If you want to join in... visit the fabulous Kasey to find out more about Friend Makin' Monday.

My Favorite Things:

1. Miracles that the Lord has done in my life! You can read the latest one here.




2. The BEACH!!! It is a beautiful, fun, and relaxing place for me. My 3 studs!


Gulf Shores 2005...long overdue for a beach vacation!


3. STRAWBERRIES- My favorite food! LOVE THEM! Do I smother them with sugar...nope. My all time favorite way to eat them is just how they come out of the garden. (Washed of course!) This is one food I definitely try to buy organic. This year I will have organic strawberries in my garden...cannot wait!




4. Baking- I like to cook, but I LOVE to bake. I enjoy making desserts. sigh...maybe THAT is why no beach body here. Hmmmm?

Caden wants to be a "cooker" when he grows up.


5. Photography- I love taking lots of pictures! No, I am not a professional...lol. The way I remember a lot of things is through pictures...they are priceless to me. I just prefer to be behind the camera.




6. Bargains- Love them! I try never to pay full price for anything. I have a harder time with groceries but I am learning. I love yard sales! You can find just about anything your heart desires.

I paid under $10 for everything in the picture at...yard sales!


7. Friends- I love my friends! I have also enjoyed meeting you here too. I have met a lot of great new friends!




8. Fall- I love all the changing colors and the cooler temperature. I love going camping in the fall.

My BOYS!! They are always into something!!


9. Blogging- I am fairly new to blogging. I love it. I starting blogging just to remember all the cute things the boys were saying and doing. You know the ones you think to yourself...I'll never forget that. And, then I would! Now, I don't have to. I have also loved 'meeting' and learning from other bloggers.





10. My FAMILY....My favorite people in the world!! I am blessed!

We are over due for a family picture with all 5 of us!!

Well, there you have it. A few of my favorite things...Ready to join in? Visit All That Is Good and Kasey will hook you up. Have a blessed Monday!

I love fall, too. I can't decide which is my favorite season - fall or spring.

:-)

Lorie said...

I think I can agree with all 10 of those!!

Leah said...

Great list! I love yard sales or "garage sales" as we call them! :)

Sarah said...

Loved your list. I read about Cameron's hospital bill. Awesome!
Then I read Cameron's story. How scary! So glad everything turned out ok. God is good.

Wendy said...

this is prob. my favorite of all the lists i have read today. i love everything you mentioned!! GREAT list Rhonda!! i just love friend making mondays don't you!! (i think i have said that 5 times now but i SOO mean it)

Kim Caldwell said...

Rhonda, You and I are so similiar. I think we must have been seperated at birth.

Besides the beach and photography, I would have to agree on everything. Photography frustrates me, because the picture always has things in it I did not see when taking it.

Secondly the beach. I would love it if there was not any sand.

Sure wish you lived closer I think I would love to have coffee with you!

Have a great Modnay!

Tanielle said...

Awesome list! I love doing this it's so much fun getting to know other people! I so love the fall but I am anxious for spring to come. Have a good Monday!

Amber said...

I love the beach, and I also love fall! It's my favorite time of year.

But my favorite on your list is yard sales. I can't wait to go soon!

Xazmin said...

This is such a great list. Taking picture is a love of mine as well. Actuall - I agree with quite a few of your favorite things!

momma said...

i love the pictures you used. i am a visual learner :)

and wow (again) on that miracle!!

i like to bake and LOVE to cook. cooking you can guesstimate, with baking you have to be exact. i'm not an exact kinda girl :)

Lacy said...

Im with Kim....I would love to come over with you and have coffee. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I read so many great things on your profile that we have in common such as music and movies. The one playing on your blog is currently speaking so much to me in my life. I just downloaded it yesterday and Im very convicted by it. Ill be back to visit. Nice to meet you.

I loved reading the story about the hospital bill -- such a great analogy of what Jesus did for us as the cross!

Pam said...

Great list! I can't wait for garage sales to start this year!

Tanya from Miller Racing Family said...

Rhonda, love your list this week. The beach vacation looks wonderful. We are hoping to either go to the beach or Colorado this summer. I am so with you on the pictures. I alway tell Donnie there will be a time when we are so happy we have all of these pictures. They won't be small for long. Last I am so happy that I got to meet you in the blogging world. You are such an inspiration to me. Have a blessed day!

I am a huge garage/yard sale fan. My kids get their whole back to school wardrobes practically when we go to Wisconsin in July. They have awesome sales and everything is dirt cheap. Great list but I am with Kim on the beach, it is great except for the sand. Ick.

Heather ~ Sugarplum Garters said...

thank you so much for stopping by! i love the picture of your boys on the beach, and i have to agree - if you haven't had a beach vacation since 2005, you are WAY overdue for one! :o)

Missy said...

Hi there Rhonda! Thanks for visiting my blog and being a follower. I look forward to reading more of your posts, too.

I liked your faves list. Oh yes, I love baking and bargains as well. They are the best.

Heidi @ Blue Eyed Blessings said...

Hi Rhonda, Just a little late in joining the party for Friend Makin' Monday, so now I'm finally making my rounds to say hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday...it was fun to see that we have some things in common. In fact, I would have to say that pretty much everything on your list we have in common as a favorite (it was sure hard to choose just 10, huh?) We live near the Oregon coast so we visit the beach often. I'm looking forward to some trips this summer once the weather gets nicer. Have a great day!

Carrie said...

I love your list! The beach is my favorite too!

Carol Kennon said...

Of course I take the 40% off coupon with me to Hobby Lobby! I love that place. Thanks for stopping by. Nice to 'meet' you too.

Becca @ The Texas Darlings said...

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog- this has been fun!

Loved reading about your miracles...praise GOD!

Lacy said...

Hey Rhonda! The song I was talking about yesterday was "While Im waiting." LOVE IT! I have never seen the bloggy ipod with lots of songs. You have on fun blog and its all jazzy!!!

Sweet Torts said...

I love taking pictures too, but I like being in them just as much. ;)

And strawberries -- mmmmmm.

I love baking too, but I like cooking more now than I ever have (not that that's saying much. hehe)
In NY, we tend to eat out much more than at home. So at this point, I'm learning so I can have home cooked meals. :)

Great blog..I'm going to read it often...

Shawn said...

We could have shared lists!

Shelley a.k.a. Momma said...

Hi Rhonda! Thanks for letting me know you stopped by my blog this week. I also love going to the beach with my guys...your picture is so cute. We always take so many great pictures on vacation at the beach!!

Pam said...

The award goes to Rhonda! Come see me to pick up your award!
Love
Pam
