Happy, Happy Saturday friends.  I've had a full couple of days; yesterday I spent time with my girlfriend from Ca.  We went to several thrift stores, didn't buy anything and also I introduced her to a restaurant here called Noodles & Co.  I love this chain because the food is cooked to order and relatively inexpensive plus they have gluten free dishes.  Today I attended a Christmas brunch at our local church; such fun and really made me feel like we were ushering in the true Christmas season.  We delivered a Christmas bag filled with goodies and now I can just relax and catch up on blog friends.
Have a wonderful weekend.


  1. Well, I am glad you have been enjoying yourself! Sounds like lots of good fun!

  2. What a nice day you have had! What? No purchase at the thrifts? I can't imagine!
    I am sitting here on the sofa with the seat reclined, feet up, resting from my Christmas shopping before I have to go get all dolled up for husband's Christmas dinner party for work.
    Wish I could just keep sitting!!

  3. Hi Noreen!! You are really busy, but I can tell you're filled with the spirit and fun of the holiday and enjoying it with friends, which is the best! I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and get that chance to relax!!

  4. Mom's been busy too, but it is a happy kind of busy if that makes any sense. We have that Noodle & Company here but Mom hasn't been there. She will have to try it one of these days. Enjoy your weekend.

    I pray a blessed Christmas and New Year for you and your family!! I love you.

  8. Merry Christmas my friend. You always bring a smile to my face not only when you drop by my place, but when I read about your day, your encouraging words and so much more here. It's like stepping into your front door, staying awhile and visiting with an old friend. I love that.

    May God bless your entire life in every way imaginable. May He continue to use you to lift the spirits of others with your smile and beautiful Spirit here. May He fill your heart to overflowing with His peace, love, joy, happiness, good health, miracles...I could go on and on my friend.

    A gem in my heart you are and always will be.

    Thank you for uplifting me throughout this year with your prayers, friendship and encouraging words. That means more to me than you will ever fully realize.

    Again, Merry Christmas.

    {{{Love you}}}

  9. Noreen, just wanted to stop by and wish you a blessed Christmas. I know I've not been as visible in blog land lately. It's been hard to keep up with full time work and daily living and blogging. But I miss many of my blogging friends like you.

    Blessings and love,

  10. Hope you have a nice weekend as well :-)
