Coffee Date Anyone

Happy Friday!! Welcome! If you were here for coffee this morning I would give you a hug and tell you how I have been enjoying this weather! It has been between 70-80 the last week or so. AMAZING! I have been soaking it up with my son and have been a little MIA on my blog. I do miss everyone, but it has been great spending the extra time with my family!

Yesterday we spent some time outside with the water table! What fun! We had our neighbors around, the kids played and got soaked as the adults chatted. What a wonderful evening!

I am so glad we got out yesterday because it is supposed to rain this weekend. We have been thinking about going to Fort Rapids this weekend. We have some free tickets that expire at the end of the month. I really want to make sure we use them! How fun would this be!!

It has just been a great week spent at the park, in the yard, working in the flower beds and I have also spent some more time "in my shop".  It has been fun organizing and thinking up new necklaces.
These are some of my recent favorites!  You can find them here, here & here

On another note, I am excited to start a new study this coming week with my tuesday small group. We are starting the book Love and Respect. We have 4 couples in the group and this is going to be a great study on marriage!
What is Love and Respect? Here is a bit from the website

We believe love best motivates a woman and respect most powerfully motivates a man. Research reveals that during marital conflict a husband most often reacts when feeling disrespected and a wife reacts when feeling unloved.  We asked 7,000 people this question: when you are in a conflict with your spouse or significant other, do you feel unloved or disrespected?  83% of the men said "disrespected."  72% of the women said, "unloved."  Though we all need love and respect equally, the felt need differs during conflict, and this difference is as different as pink is from blue!

I look forward to what God has in store for us all during this study. I have heard people stay how it changed their marriage! I am not saying I am unhappy in mine but I am excited to learn and hear from God, my husband and the rest of the group!

Before I go- we wanted to say "Thank you" for being apart of my life! I appreciate you all very much. I am thankful for your comments, your love and support!

Ps- this video cracks me up- he is such a happy kid, then when he gets in the car he has what we call his "car face" he seems to get very serious. It is too funny! (and yes, we are parked) :)

One more thing-  I won a year subscription to inlinkz and have always wanted to host a link party. I have had a few wonderful ideas from others and thought I would ask you all here too.
Do you have an idea for a great link party? Would you link up with me??  I would love it and would love to hear your thoughts and ideas! Please share!!

Don't forget, you can have another cup with Chrissy from Boerman RamblingsNay form Cover to cover,  and Alissa from  Rags to Stitches.
