Wow Us Wednesdays #59 and a Winner

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your kind words and encouragement through your comments and emails for hubby's back trouble. Some of them brought me to tears. This is what I truly love about the blogging community.
The MRI did get done today after they found that he has had one since his ear surgery. His doctor will look at the MRI results and then get him in to see a specialist very soon. I hope you will understand that I just have not had the time to go through the links from last week to feature a few. I normally do that on Sunday and Monday and that is when everything went downhill around here. Life just gets in the way sometimes, but these trials only make us stronger.

I didn't want this post to be completely without pictures so I thought I would share some expressions that Leila made today. I took her to Target while Mr. Savvy was having his MRI. She was so good and a bright spot in our day.

She was begging for a snack here.





Thank you to all who joined the party last week. There were over 400 entries. It just means so much to me that you would want to join this party.

Is anyone else having problems getting your comments in your email through blogger? Only some of mine are showing up in my email. Another blogger issue, I guess.

Now let's see what you have to share this week. You can share any diy projects, crafts, room changes or tweaks, makeovers, progress reports, recipes, and anything else that will wow us.

Party Guidelines:
I hope you will grab my new Wow Us Wednesdays button from my sidebar or
have a visible link in your post to this party so others can find it and join in. If you find your link deleted then just add a visible link or button and try again.
No etsy or advertising links.
Only link parties that are sharing a project of your own in that post.
If you are new here I hope you will become a follower. If you already follow through GFC I hope you will follow through Linky follower, too just in case Google decides to include blogger blogs on not having GFC any more.
Please don't post the same thing you did last week.

Please turn off word verification. It now asks that you copy two words. One was bad enough. It takes too much time to copy that and then get it wrong and have to do it again. I will not leave a comment where that is turned on.


The WINNER of the Kirkland's giveaway is #78 Budget Design Girl.
Congrats! I just need your email address.

    Thank you for hosting this link party in the midst of all that's going on in your life. I love the verse that says, His mercies are new each day. Sounds to me like you need some mercy in the coming days!

  23. Kim, I didn't get to see your post about Mr. Savvy until today. I pray not only for his healing and the doctor's wisdom, but for you as well. Leila is a doll baby - I know you already know that! ;o) I think she looks like you. Thanks for hosting your party - even in the midst of all of your life events at the moment.

  59. You don't have to apologize to us, we come here because you are such a gracious hostess, party or no party! If anyone gives you any lip about the features not getting done, send 'em to me - I'll straighten them out on their manners.

    Speaking of manners, I sure hope you gave that little Southern Belle a treat begging or not!

  63. I'm having you and your dearest Mr. Savvy on my prayers so he gets his health back soon, God will listen, you'll see. I'm so glad for the MRI and now they can see much clearer. Your lil'grandgirl is adorable, and I love her little shoes and that face...they make us happy, don't they? I always try to link up to your great party, but to no avail. After I lost my blog and daughter recuperated it, it's impossible. Do not fret, I'll figure it out slowly. Many blessings.

  72. So sorry about Mr Savvy. I am more familiar with spinal issues than I care to be and I know how much it can turn your world upside down. I hope that whatever is going on can be remedied quickly and that he's feeling like his old self again soon. Leila is absolutely adorable! I'd be giving in to whatever that little face asked for all day long. I wouldn't be able to help myself. LOL Thanks for hosting the party even with all of the chaos in your life right now. Sending healing thoughts and prayers your way. ~Mary

    ReplyDelete
  98. Your granddaughter is so sweet - she looks like she might be about the same age as my daughter (16 mos). Emme would LOVE those shoes - when I bought her a first pair, I put one on to see if it fit and she lost her mind until I put on the other one. Unfortunately, I learned recently that she does NOT love tutus (the 1st thing I bought when I found out I was having a girl). It's funny how decisive they are at this age! Thanks for hosting and sharing the lovely pictures with us.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Oh she is just too cute!! Best wishes for your husband. I am sure having little Leila around should cheer everyone up!
