new friends...

I added some new links to the "group hug" at the side. These are some people that I like to go visit. Some I lurk (as I am sure we all do) and others I comment on quite a bit. Some are new friends, and others are people I have known forever. One is my big brother, Drew, who really doesn't update his page much, but if you'd like to read a cute engagement story, it is there. Drew proposed to his fiancee' Jamie in a really cute way. Jamie, who is a missionary choir director, has traveled all over the world with a children's choir from South Africa. They were even featured in the movie "Blood Diamond" about diamond trafficking. Consequently, she did not want a traditional diamond ring...you'll have to check out the story to see what she did get.

I love Rebekah at Diagonally Parked. She makes me laugh every time I read her blog. Well, when she isn't being super informative about things. Her post about dialing 911 on your cellphone will really open your eyes about public safety. She is a 911 dispatcher and her sister is a novelist, and I won her book in a contest. I am currently enjoyed said book and will post about it later.

Debbie, at this is the life, is a great read, too! She reviews tv shows, comments on fun things, but is also a big encouragement to me right now. I think she is a one woman prayer team, and I know I have been included in her prayers lately.

Brin, who writes at Messy, Thrilling Life, is a treat. She takes the most amazing photos and is constantly posting recipes that make my diet harder. She posted one about a chocolate sauce that was so sinful...and one about bacon wrapped chicken bites with avocado ranch sauce that was a big hit at the super bowl. She usually posts a Monday Moment that is a mini-devotional.

And if you haven't read Emily, Heather, Jennifer P. or Miss Sniz yet, you are missing out! Emily just got herself a new blog design. Heather has the best music to make you get up and dance, and Miss Sniz tells some great stories. Jennifer P. cracks me up, but has also been praying for me lately.

Well, check them all out if you get a chance. I have other blogs that I also like to read, but haven't posted yet. And if you read this, and you don't want your blog linked to mine, just comment and say so! I can happily remove it, although we all must confess that we like comments and the more the merrier.

Have a happy sunday. Today I am taking a rest, playing with the dogs and reading a book. May you enjoy some peace and quiet today, too.

Hi Sissy,

Hope you are well! It is fun to blog hop and get to know other friends. I am not sure if you know, but Mom of a Redhead is my sister!

If you are in the same school system that I am in, which I think you are, only 8.5 more weeks! What will you do with your summer break!

Debbie said...

Sissy! Thanks so much for the kind words...ya know I love coming here, too. You are so honest, eloquent, and fun. And I'm dying to know what is in that Pottery Barn bag!!! And Yes, I am praying for you sweet girl.

Hey, thanks for the link-age. I am getting a new look (hopefully today) You'll have to stop by and tell me what you think

Hows the book? I still haven't finished but hope to get back to reading it today

Thanks for the link-a-doo! I feel so loved. Is it okay that I added you to my peeps I peep on links? Love the urns and flowers and your helpers look like they get the job done efficiently! Cute! Yeah, Sarah is my sister or "seestar" as you read. Small world. I didn't even know she had left comments on your blog before I started commenting! Crazy!

I'm so sorry about your low-fat cream cheese. Why was it yuck-o? I personally have found that any dairy product that's fat-free tastes bad. Because dairy IS fat, you know?

Sniz said...

Oh and Sissy! Thanks for the link. I love you too!
Later, Sniz
