My Happy List: Family and Friends

Hello all and thank you for stopping by.  My friend Ricki Jill hosts a fabulous weekly link up party that everyone should try.  I don't get to take part too often but when I do I always feel so much better about everyday life.
So without further ado,
my happy list
1.This one is all thanks to Pinterest

I found a fabulous tutorial on how to clean and season cast iron.  When we moved into our house one of the things the previous owners left behind was a cast iron pot.  It was disgusting and covered in rust but no longer.  I followed the instructions (click the image to go to the post) and yes, it worked just like that picture shows.  I was so excited that I even planned a meal so I could use it and oh my it was the best Beef Stew I have ever made. 
2.  Friends
This Thursday I will be packing the car and heading to Atlanta to spend a fabulous weekend at Sweethearts on the Homefront.  This will be my first ever art retreat.  But what makes it even more special is that I will finally get to meet my friend Tabitha.  Tabitha and I met through MAMA and chat on the phone just about everyday.
3.  Family
A few weeks ago my husband and I decided to join a class for Marriage Enrichment.  It is held at our church and revolves around the book Happy Together by John Bosio.  The church serves dinner before hand and it has become a wonderful middle of the week family outing.  The girls love going to eat and then playing with all the other children and it is nice for Mr. Glitter Tart and I to meet new people and explore our marriage more. 
Well that's it for me this week.
Come join us!

Oh, how wonderful you and your husband taking this class! It is always neat to meet people in person after you have been friends with them awhile through the internet. I have been lucky enough to do this a few times, actually I met my husband through a dating website. :) Enjoy your time at your retreat.

I am going to be refurbishing my cast iron pans...thanks. I have one that we use a lot but it never seems to get washed properly.
Great happy list!

I enjoy Wednesday nights at our church, too! :D

Supposedly cast iron is good for you because it puts iron in you diet. I cook with my iron post and pans all the time! Please share your stew recipe with us!

Have fun on your art retreat. What a fun thing to do! I've only been to local workshops, but I would love to travel and take one of Carol Marine's workshops one day.

Thanks for linking-up, Sweetie!
