Hey you guys!  You made it!  It’s Friday! So today…in honor of Friday…we are just going to do casual on the blog.  No real rhyme or reason, just some pretty pictures to look at and maybe gab a little.  Does that sound like a plan to you?  I thought that you would approve.


(btw:  To all of you newcomers….WELCOME!  We are so glad to have you join us on this little faith filled,  farmhousey, junkin’, gardening, cooking and whatever else we feel like doing…adventure. You can also follow us on Facebook here. We would love to have you join us.)

This is the reason that I originally bought the labels.  (Notice: Momma gets the end...she has the biggest purse! ;))

Do you have big fun-filled plans for the weekend?  Maybe you are just going to wind down from a long week.  Both options sound like a good idea to me.

Millie Jane, our brown eyed baby.

Tonight I am going to make nachos for the fam.  I love Friday night suppers.  They are so much more relaxing because we don’t have to rush around to fit in baths, homework and then devotions before bed.  We can take our time.  Life is so fast…it feels good to have a minute to slow down.  Agreed?  I thought so.

Aren't these amazing?  I found the jars at the ReStore (four of them) and the Ironstone at the thrift store.  (Do you guys follow For the Love of a House?  When I saw her jars...I was in love with this idea.)

To all of my super-healthy friends…please close your eyes and scroll down.  I am getting ready to type something that will make you uncomfortable.  Processed Cheese Food.  Are you still with me?  You are brave. We love Rotel, Velveeta and ground beef nachos.  It is so wonderfully creamy, meaty and tomatoey and peppery.  My husband’s cousin Jess makes them this way and it is sooo good.  Healthy people…it will be okay.  We will start eating spinach again soon.  It’s Friday night…live a little.  😉 (If you do make this, add two cans of Rotel.  It’s scrumptious and soupy.  I don’t like it when it’s thick like pudding. If you do…we can still be friends.) 😉


Whatever you do I hope that you enjoy it.  I hope that you take a few minutes just for you.  I hope that you find a quiet place to reflect on all that you have been blessed with.  I hope that you feel the love of God…warming your heart from the inside out.

Do you remember this cloche?  I found it down on the bottom shelf at the thrift store for four dollars.  That was a heart thumper...right there.  ;)

Happy Weekend, Dirt Roaders!
