Friday Favorites


Favorite Thought

Often, the answer to our prayer does not come while we're on our knees but while we're on our feet serving the Lord & serving those around us.:

 Favorite Halloween Costume

OK - so this is probably my favorite Halloween costume of the year
... & I love it even more because I love both of these people in this picture
(3 really in this picture - hello baby in the belly)
But sweet Emily doesn't get to miss out on Halloween since she is in a wheelchair. She's got such creative parents that incorporated her wheelchair into a Claw Machine.
Isn't it fantastic!!!  Totally a favorite!!!
Heck, I want to sit in the middle of all those stuffed animals myself - fun stuff!

Favorite Food Tip

The Simplest Way to Cook Butternut Squash Ever:

I've always wanted to try to make my own Spaghetti Squash at home but always afraid of the cutting the thing & putting in the oven (dumb - I know) but BAM - found this & am excited.
A coworker actually tried it already & said it worked perfectly & easily!

Just clean & put in a crock pot:

Place whole squash in slow cooker and cook until soft and easily pierced, about 4 to 5 hours on high or 6 to 8 hours on low.
  1. When cool enough to handle, cut in half and scoop out seeds

Favorite Funnies
 I cant help but laugh at this every time I see it!:

YES!! Every time! Crazy baggers mess with my OCD:

Yes. Some people just arent smart and you can't help them.:

my life:

... how I felt at the start of vacation when I told myself to enjoy the week
...when I attempt to go on a long run & my knee pain starts in the first mile
...when I know the answer that my office manger doesn't
... when I get my credit card statement & see all the yarn that I bought

...when I see a coworker out in a public store today at 4:00pm

Happy Friday Y'all!!!


  1. Considering my spaghetti squash blew up in my mircrowave last night - I'm going to try the crock pot method next time!! Happy Friday! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. cutting and baking squashes in the oven is easy peasy! it just depends on how you want it done and the squash type as well. i like my spaghetti squash baked face-side down with olive oil and sea salt yum!!

  3. Crochet cozies are so adorable! I love the fox one!!

  4. Thank you for the info on the spaghetti squash!!! And that costume--toy machine--so awesome!

  5. I love the claw machine! How awesome is that? So sweet

  6. Huh I'm definitely going to try that spaghetti squash trick! I've been the same way -- too intimidated! Happy Friday!

  7. Those crochet holders for coffee are a great idea! Love them!

  8. Nice costume! Happy Friday ♥♥

  9. I love anything done in a crockpot so even though the oven works just fine for me I may have to try that! Love the creative use of the wheel chair in the Halloween costume! Have a great weekend!

  10. What a cute costume idea! I love that bookmark, I always scramble to finish a page but I like that idea. Belle still reading to him, swoon.

  11. I haven't tried the spaghetti squash in the crockpot yet but want too. I have struggled too many times trying to cut the darn thing in half to cook in the oven.

  12. The public store gif is so me! Hahahah! That is genius to cook the spaghetti squash in the crockpot because I hate waiting for it to cook in the oven. It takes forever!!!!

  13. i have never tried spaghetti squash either, i had no idea you could do it in the crockpot! mind blown.

  14. That Halloween costume is fantastic! Also, I just decided I desperately need a knitted fox coffee sleeve! Swoon. I'm a huge fan of that baby gif and that Cookie Monster gif! Have a great weekend!

  15. Ooh - I love every single one of these favorites! The quote - the costume - the simple way to cook spaghetti squash! This post made my day!!

  16. Enjoyed my visit, loved loved loved the costume!!!


  17. I don't have knee pain (I used to, but I only get if I repeatedly run down hills, thanks Air Force), but I hate when I get really intense cramps near the end of my run. So close!! But trying to run with one is like a stabbing pain every step.

  18. what a great idea! the little one i nanny for is in a wheelchair and wanted to dress it up. she was a rainbow instead, lol. i don't have co-workers, so i'm lucky there!
