Friday Favorite Things

friday favorite things | finding joy
These are a few of my favorite things this week

Playing paper dolls with granddaughter
No more pushing, she learned how to pump herself higher
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's the grandkids

Youngest daughter and family at Easter picnic
A fun Easter picnic
It's a big world (just out of the nest)

Each week, Hilary at Feeling Beachie lists four statements with a blank for you to fill in on your own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to her at If she uses them, she will add you as co-host to the hop! 

1. When I am _happy_ I always _sing__

2. _Traveling__ is my _idea_ of _a good vacation__

3. The  __quieter____ the __better__, I hate drama!

4. If only I _had more time_ then _I could accomplish everything on my to do list_ and everyone would be _happy_.


  1. Oh I love the little baby bird and it IS great when they learn to pump the swings themselves.

    Have a good weekend.

  2. What a happy post! Love the photos of family enjoying them selves and yes, pumping her self is a very thankful thing.

  3. I love your answers to #4 ... the story of my life! ha!

    It's neat when they learn to pump the swings themselves, but on the other hand, it's just another indication that they're getting so big that they no longer need us. They grow up way too fast!

  4. Love #1 -- drives my kids crazy when I suddenly burst into song. Stop Mommy Stop!! but then they all want me to sing them to sleep at night. go figure.

  5. Love #3.... so true! I am so done with drama!

  6. Hi Marti! I've given you a blog award. You can find out about it here:

  7. I sing all the time...especially Broadway tunes! You sure have a great looking family, Marti!

  8. Great pictures of your family. I love to see a little girl playing paper dolls. I love that last litle thing Feeling Beachy puts out every week. xo Diana

  9. Love the photos! And I really loved the idea for the trampoline! Good one!

  10. You have a beautiful family!

    I agree with your #3--who needs drama?!

    Happy Friday! :)

  11. Awesome pictures! I like the idea of an Easter picnic...not in Ohio, of course!

    That trampoline is great! What a stellar safety idea. One of my nieces broke her arm falling from a t4rampoline when she was 9. When the fall is just down not off, less chance of anything breaking!

  12. Love to see your family and your fun.s andie

  13. I love all your answers! Well, no one else would love me liking number one since I do not have a voice at all, but it's still fun!

  14. Hi Marti.....looks like you are having a grand time
    with the grands. BTW I answered your e-mail a few days after you sent it haven't heard from you.....hopefully you got it...sometime these get sent to junk mail. Anyway....if you are still interested just let me know.

    Hugs from here

  15. I am not allowed to sing.... The other day I was, and marc begged me to stop... I am that bad.

  16. Ahhhh, the to-do list. It never ends, does it?!

  17. I hate drama, too...too much of it these days.
