"Fabulous Finds" Friday

Here are some things and places I've stumbled upon while being snowed in here this week. Go check them out for yourself.

One of the first things I would like to do is introduce you to someone I just met myself this week.


Joanne is a fellow blogger, wife, mother, and homeschooler.

And she is fighting for her life even as I type.

January 11th she was blogging.

January 12th she suffered a stroke while exercising on her treadmill.

She and her husband Toben desperately need your prayers friends.

I have spent some time this week looking through her site and there is a wealth of good stuff there.

Definitely a fabulous find.


Maybe you are like me.

Maybe you are A.D.D.

With just enough O.C.D sprinkled in to make you bonkers.

Needing structure and organization but needing something to keep your brain honed in on the task at hand.


If so meet Tsh at Simple Mom.

Her daily docket and weekly cleaning list have been life savers for me.

Seriously, my laundry room and toilets probably think I have been abducted by aliens.

They have never seen me so much!

Tsh is also the creator and founder of Simple Living Media which also has a Homeschooling site.

If you are a homeschooler you will want to check this out.


This article has left me rethinking a lot of things.

I am not an impulsive shopper.

Ok that's a lie. I am totally an impulsive shopper.

Thankfully I am married to someone that is not. God provides people.

Anyhoo, when I saw this necklace at Funky Vintage Kitchen I did something I never do.

I bought it.

Right then and there.

Mine is turquoise.

To match my new canvas that now adorns my mantle.


I made this Chicken Pot Pie soup for dinner this week.

Do you like chicken pot pie?


Then listen closely...

You listening?

Make this soup!!!

I made Vitalicous corn muffins to go with ours and it was perfect.

In fact, while you are at it, (and while I am being bossy) add this Meatloaf to your menu plan.

Your ketchup will thank you.


I started this two days ago.

I can hardly move my body.

Seriously, it is the same kind of sore that you have after surgery.

Only I feel it in every square inch of my body!

When it comes to workouts I'm a glutton for punishment I suppose.

The harder the better.

If I am going to spend 30 minutes, doing the one thing I spend the entire day trying to talk myself out of doing, I want it to count for something.

This workout delivers.

Highly recommended.


If you are a blogger, you should read this.

We all should.



Speaking of Ann, I cannot post about fabulous finds without mentioning the book that is changing my life.

"1000 Gifts"

If I could buy it for the whole world I would.

That good.


My mom gave us these and this for Christmas.

The kitchen clips are great. We use them on everything from chips to bags of nuts. Very sturdy.

And they double great as hair clips.

Just ask my mom. :-)

She also gave me 2 sets of these

Love these. They are shorter than normal utensils and fit perfectly in your hands when you are mixing and such.


I found this great article on parenting.

If you are a parent. You must read this.

Then print it out and glue it to your forehead so that it hangs in front of your eyes at all times.

Just don't drive.


Lastly, this will so be my next purchase.

Perfect don'tcha think?
