Favorite Things Party

Hi! I'm linking up today with Favorite Things Party with Andrea and Erika.  Here are a few things that I thought you may like, too!

A sweet friend from church brought me this wonderful package of Community Coffee recently. I used to live in Louisiana, but now live up north where we have no Community Coffee!! This package of Pecan Praline was the best cup of coffee I've had in a long time. She goes home to visit in Louisiana, so hopefully she may be able to bring me back another bag. If you live down south, you are indeed blessed:) Does your grocery store carry Community? If they do, you must try this flavor.

I bought this lip balm on clearance at Target and love the flavor. It is Burt Bees lip balm in grapefruit. Our Target had it on clearance for about $2.00.

I make sweet tea pretty often, but if I don't have time to make it, I often get this. Walmart has it for $2.78 for 1 gallon.

One last favorite is my oldest son's 23rd birthday! I drove to a party store this morning to just get a few balloons to tie to his door and I ended up bursting into tears on the drive there. It just doesn't seem possible that is was 23 years ago that I saw him for the first time. He is a great son and we are so proud of him. I had to sit out in the parking lot until I could pull myself together. I don't know why this particular birthday affected me that way, but it did. If you have little ones at home, hold them tight, because before you know it, they will turn 23 years old, and you will be sobbing on the way to the party store:)


 I love all of you sweet moms who are working so hard in your homes day in and day out.  I pray you have a wonderful and blessed week with your little ones! Love - Kathy

Linking up to:


  1. We do have Community coffee at my stores and I've never bought it! Something about the commercials appeals to me though. Pecan Praline sounds wonderful! Tomorrow there is a Java Talk post at Cozy Little House if you want to go over and join that. Here's the link:

    Happy Birthday to your handsome son. Mine are 21 and 24. I can shed some tears from time to time over the fact that they are grown up. I miss having little ones.

  2. Stacey, you should give it a try. I'd go buy a bag right now if only they sold it here. Thanks for the link...I will check it out. Thanks so much! They have grown up too fast.

  3. I can't wait for my babies to wake up so I can give them all big giant hugs! Your side by side photo totally made me tear up. On a happier note - I LOOOOOVE Burts Bees lip balm, but I've never seen the grapefruit flavor... can't wait to give it a try. Thanks so much for linking up!!!
    :) Andrea

  4. Thank you, Andrea. I miss those baby days so much. When I look back, it seems that there was a time that they (my older kids) all stayed looking the same, maybe just a little taller. Then all of sudden, they looked so different and were grown up! Cherish every single moment, because it really has passed quicker than I can even describe. Blessings! - Kathy
