Ponderings On a Thursday and The Winner of Jeter's Jam


So tomorrow is Friday.
But today is  still Thursday.
I am so ready for this week to be over, but at the same time we are heading up to Chicago on Saturday and there will be a big pot of who knows what waiting for us.
I would dive in to what I mean by that, but even thinking about it exhausts me.

So stay tuned ok?
And pray for us.
We need it.

I was browsing around some of my fav blogs and this post from Anna sums up how I'm feeling, pretty much exactly!

When I am feeling uncertain or nervous or basically any sort of overwhelming situation, I feel the need to take a bath. Not because I'm dirty or stinky, but because there is truth in the calming effect of a bubble bath.
It's not just advice from a magazine girls. Seriously.

A change is fixing to happen in my life.
But I don't know what it is.
It feels like it's going to be a good change, a BIG change even.

Side note: check out the corn recipe Anna shares in this post.
 Yumm Yummy Yumm!


Next on my agenda, I would like to say how thankful I am for some of the recent lovely ladies I have become friends with thru the blogging world.

I hope that you know all of them and read their blogs. If you don't, go now and get familiar with them.
You will be blessed guaranteed.

The first lady is Stephanie over at The Honey Pot . Her shop is adorable and her faith shines thru and she is such an inspiration. Not to mention the girl can cook!
She is too sweet and her posts are simply homey, meaning you will fall in love with her immediately and want to be adopted by their family.
I've already asked her and she said yes.
But then I emailed her and said that my hubby and dog would need to come too because we are a package deal.
She hasn't emailed me since.....Haha!

The second lady I am so glad to know is Annie who blogs over at the Farrar Four . She is seriously a hoot!
We exchange emails here and there and I loooooove her southern style. She is also the mama to a super cute little dude who's cheeks you will want to give a big kiss when you see his sweet picture. She is also one craft gal, go see the dresses she has made and encourage her to open up a shop!She encourages me and gives me pep talks and believes that I could quit my day job and make jam for a living. I so LOVE her:)

And last, but definitely not least is my girl Mary from Finding Healthy Hope . I will tell you what I told Mary, I think we could be sistahs from another mistah. I don't know if we've got the midwest roots going for us or we're just blessed enough to have a connection, albeit thru emails, but I am so very thankful for this sweet lady.
We pray for each other and lift each other up and when you visit her blog you will see that her style of writing and the pics of her home/kids/meals/crafty do's/love for Jesus are outstandingly awesome.

I am so glad to know these girls!
I love sharing emails with them and following each other in IG.
True friendships can be made thru social media, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

And on that note..........
I'm going to announce the winner of my jam.
I said that if you left me a comment or email that I would randomly pick a name out of a hat.
Well I decided that I would send a jar to all 5 ladies who left a comment earlier this week.
Thank you for tuning in girls.
The winners are:

Annie Loo
