These are a few of my (new) favorite things

Feeling happy today. 

Feeling grateful today. 

Feeling (a little less) tired today. 

Thought I'd share a few of my (new) favorite things.

New favorite dinner:  4 veggie meatball skillet dish.  The boys ate it up!  (Recipe forthcoming in future post.)

New favorite meatloaf recipe:  This is the best meatloaf ever.  (Note:  take her advice - you want the cheese.)

Not-so-new favorite blog post ever.  In a world of bigger/better/self-indulgant lifestyles as what peers look up to, I love this post.  It's bold, honest, and brings God into the mix.  (Love this post.)

Favorite new-ish blog.  There's so many things I could say about this woman.  By far, one of (because there are many) the best things to ever come out of my MOPS membership.  She's honest, funny, down-to-earth, genuine, and probably one of the best-darn walking partners around.

Favorite chex mix recipe.  Also known as crack-in-a-bag.  Use Rice and Corn Chex to make it gluten free.  Add nuts for a little protein, and its a balanced meal....right?  (RIGHT?!?!)  yeah, that's what I thought.

Favorite You Tube Video.  At first I thought it was a bit of a joke, but then I realized this group is for-reals.  It's an interesting song/performance/group...but its also a long video.  The things I think are humerous:  the back-laying cycling, the 80's glam synthecizer, the hosts that are brought out to "dance" toward the end of the song, and (the BEST part) starting at 7:30, the regular news starts out of the same studio.  The first guy holds it together well (you can see him shake his head a bit to push off the laughter), but the meteorologist....well, he starts at 7:58.  Hilarious!

Awww - you made me tear up! I can't tell you how much I look forward to our walking dates - seriously one of the highlights of my week (miraculously since I am saying that about exercise). Plus, everything you said about me I would say about you :)
