  1. Are you enjoying Heartland?? I have one to watch that I recorded yesterday.. but love this show!! And Chicago Fire... I am so ready for it to be Fall so it will be back on!! Have a great week!!

    1. I really do love Heartland. It's such a good show! Funny you mention Chicago Fire, as I am catching up on it RIGHT NOW! lol

  2. Since you are the second blog I've seen mention Heartland, I guess I better check that show out. Lovely photo of the path, sorry about all the mosquitoes...I'm sure a big mosquito battle is coming to these parts soon. Hope you have a great week!

    1. I have since taken another walk in the woods and I am covered arms to ankles in bites, lol. Yes, Heartland is really a wonderful show!

  3. I have heard a great many talking about heartland! I will be looking for a new series soon! I may have to give it a try! Your picture was beautiful a perfect place to walk! Sorry about the critters! Mosquitos are awful here as well! We have had a lot of rain and the have been worse because of it! Speaking of snakes we killed a 3ft snake outside our garage door! My youngest wasn't to happy when it greeted her when she was returning from taking the dog out! Thanks for sharing a glimpse into your week! Pray this week is blessed

    1. Definitely try out Heartland! I'm sure you'll like it. We really don't see many snakes around here, so she was happy to see it! lol There are no poisonous snakes here, so that makes it a lot easier to be curious about them! If they wandered up to my door I'm certain I wouldn't be so happy to see them! lol

  4. Heartland is so good isn't it? I've yet to catch up completely, only watched the first 5 seasons.
    Hoping everything goes well with Jennah and you guys finally have some answers. :)

    1. Yes, Heartland is a really great show. I'm at the end of season 4. Got temporarily sidetracked by catching up on the last season of Nashville though!

  5. Too many comments on here about Heartland for me not to check it out - thanks, everyone, for the recommendation. What type of planner do you use? I can hardly wait to start using my new Erin Condren, it's so pretty. Have a great week!

    1. I am a Happy Planner girl :) I have 3 of them. I use the big one for my war binder, the classic one for every day, and the fitness planner. I'm a little planner crazy. hahaha But I enjoy it and it's been my outlet for about a year now! I love the Erin Condren's too. I've seen a lot of YouTube videos on them!
