Friday Feast

When someone smiles at you, do you smile back?
Yes! It's contagious!


Describe the flooring in your home. Do you have carpet, hardwood, vinyl, a mix?
Hard wood living room and ceramic tile kitchen, breakfast room, dining room, and powder room downstairs. Carpeted stairs and upstairs bedrooms, and crummy linoleum in the upstairs bathrooms. I'm not fond of any of it, though! I like the way the wood and tile look, but I don't like the way they feel on bare feet, and our carpet is so old and needs to be replaced.


Write a sentence with only 5 words, but all of the words have to start with the first letter of your first name.
Did Diana dance during December?

Main Course

Do you know anyone whose life has been touched by adoption?
Yes, a friend and co-worker has an adopted daughter the same age as my children. When I was trying to conceive, I had an ectopic pregnancy and two miscarriages (that I know of for sure), and then I couldn't get pregnant again for a while because of a benign tumor blocking one tube and scar tissue in the other. Adoption was looking like a viable option for us until I met the most fabulous reproductive endocrinologist who got me all fixed up. I was blessed, and now I have my beautiful twins, soon to be 12 years old.


Name 2 blue things.
Bluebonnets (Texas state flower, although they are arguably purple) and the sky on a clear day.


  1. what a sweet main course :) Happy Friday!

  2. yup, smile is really contagious...

    mine is now serve. hope you can have a bite.

    Happy FF!

  3. i envy your main course... i wish i'd have twins too, when my time comes :)

    great feast... you inspired me! thank you.

  4. Thank you for it.

    Happy Friday and Happy Mother's Day!

  5. How wonderful that your twins came along! Sometimes when adoption doesn't work out, as I found, there's wisdom in that too.

  6. Great feast.

    mine is up. hit me back if you can.

    Happy FF!

  7. Medical science sure came to your aid. That's good.

  8. Great feast! I'm having fun reading everyone's Salad. How interesting they all are.

    It's wonderful reading all the adoption stories.

    Come on over and feast with me.

  9. Suzie swears she savors succotash

  10. Nice story on your main course. Our trials often lead to great joy.

    Our appetizer is the same!

    Have a great weekend and please drop by my feast if you can!

    Just Some Thoughts

  11. My sister adopted two children. Her son she brought home from the hospital when he was 3 days old. her daughter came to her at the age of 13. Joys and challenges as with any children.

  12. have to say hmmmmm
    about the bluebonnets

  13. oops! I did not comment here on Friday! Forgive me but you get a comment on Sunday!

    I can understand about the crummy carpet. Ours is in the same areas and is only 5 years old and it looks awful. Maybe we need to get out of the house more to save the carpet? LOL

    I like your sentence and Bluebonnets is really a great answer even though as you say, they are closer to purple. It's the name that counts.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
