It’s freakin’ friday; no. 9

Real quick, before we get started with the blog hop stuff… I just wanted to give you a little update on my life. If you haven’t noticed, I haven’t blogged in a week. Last friday morning, I asked for everyone to pray because my grandfather had a heart attack. Unfortunately, less than 2 days later, and after a roller coaster of “we’ve got hope” & “there’s no hope”, he passed away at only 64 years old. This has devastated our family, because he was our rock. He was there for me, while my dad lived in another state. He took me to the Father/Daughter dance when I was young, and took me to catch my first fish. And even worse, my poor grandma is heart broken. They were high school sweethearts, together since they were 15… they 46th wedding anniversary was this upcoming April. So, I’m slowly going to begin blogging again, but I’m emotionally, physically, and mentally drained.
Also, I just wanted to make a note…
I try my hardest to individually comment and follow everyone new that links up to It’s Freakin’ Friday. The past couple weeks, due to various reasons, I just have not felt up to going through each individual blog. I apologize for this. So for all of you that stop by and link up, I will at least follow your blog, even if I don’t get a chance to leave you a comment. & If for some reason, I’ve missed your blog, just let me know.
Okay… now it’s Freakin’ Friday time…
This week’s featured blog is All is Bright, and let me tell you, I am absolutely in love with her blog. It is a super cute blog about a little bit of everything, especially her family. Make sure to swing by and follow her!!



  • You must follow my blog in order to join the blog hop. It's like going to someone's house and eating their food, but you're not even friends with them! So please, follow me via GFC, when putting your link in the blog hop.
  • Provide the link to your main blog site. One of these days, I'll do a blog hop for more specific sorts of posts, but this one is a general blog hop for meeting new people around the blogging community.
  • You must put my blog hop button somewhere on your blog. If you're new to this, most people people put theirs in a specific post, but you can put it somewhere else if that's where you keep your blog hop buttons. It just has to be somewhere.
  • And if I feature a blog, please follow that blog as well. Its kind of like a giveaway by joining, and then reward is being featured. So this last one is not required, but its definitely greatly appreciated.
