"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

Welcome to Feel Good Friday! 

Erika had found that a lot of her bloggy friends reading posts about being positive, so she thought she might try her very own meme.  She just wanted everyone to feel good and have some happy thoughts as you begin the weekend.  

It is never too late to join!!! 
 I have posted the prompts here to give you some idea of what this meme is about:
Pick one of these prompts and write about it on your blog!  You can: 
  • Just make a list. List 5 things that made you really happy this week. No matter how bad or boring you think your week was, I bet you can find 5 things.  
  • Write about something that happened to you this week that really made you smile.  Was it your child, husband, or maybe a complete stranger did to you?
  • Write about something that YOU did for someone else that really made them happy or laugh.
  • Is there something you treasure so much that every single time you look at it, it brings you happiness?  Post a pic and tell everyone about it.
  • Having a hard week and can’t find one good thing about it?  Well then, what is your happy place?  What do you think of that makes you happy? A past vacation?  A childhood memory?  We want to know!
Then head over to 
and link your blog so everyone can visit and see all about what made you 

Feel Good!!!

1.  My little boy started his Senior year of high school on Wednesday.
2.  My little girl started College last week.
These were the good old days, when I wasn't so old and neither were they.
3.  Thank to Facebook I reconnected with an old friend after almost 30 years.  Talk about a BLAST FROM THE PAST!

4.  I started a new feature (meme)on my blog yesterday.  No, I am not a new Tabloid Reporter, but it is a feature so that we can all get to know each other better.  I hope you will all check it out and join the fun.

5. NFL FOOTBALL IS BACK!!!  This house is full of life long Packer Fans!! Yes, I know they lost last night, but none of the first string even played. My favorite Packer of all time is Edgar Bennett.  Man that guy could move, bob and weave.  Today he is the Running Backs Coach for the Packers and after watching him play for years, anyone can see he is the best man for the job.  I used to have one of his jerseys but in our many moves it was lost, but I still have his training card mounted on a plague.

That's what made me smile this week.  Now tell me what made you SMILE!!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for stopping by. I tried to let my kids grow every other day to stretch out the time they were little but it never worked :(

It's not easy seeing that our kids growing older means we're growing older! =) I hope you have a great turnout with your meme. Awesome about the FB connection. Are you a Packers fan? I can't believe Favre came back to play again! Ugh...I can do without him!

Favre has gone from a legend to a laughingstock, it is really so sad.

Football season is back for sure. It's as if nothing but the Steelers matters her in Pittsburgh!

Adorable picture of your kiddos from back in the day!
