I Love Comfortable

Who doesn't?!?!

Some comfortable things I love...

~being snuggled up with my girls and/or hubby

~my pillow

~sheets with a high thread count that are so soft I can't stand myself

~soft gowns/pajamas

~these gaucho maternity pants that were hand-me-downs that I wear almost every day now (thankfully there are two pairs of medium and large!)

~my Aasics running shoes that I bought for my breast cancer walk last October; I'll never buy another brand of running shoes again. E.V.E.R.

~my flip flops from Eddie Bauer; I'll never wear another brand unless I'm forced to

~my glider rocker that I'm praying will get LOTS of use come August

These are just a few on my list. But wanna know something that I really treasure?

My comfortable friendships.

These two precious ladies came to my house with their children for a while today. This is Shannon and Shana. (I wrote about them here last year.)

It had been a long time since we had just been together. Shannon is about to have her baby (her third child, a surprise) any day now, and was a good sport about having her picture taken since she didn't fix her hair to come over. (See, she's comfortable, too!) Shana, cute as always, has one year old Sawyer who is absolutely adorable and crawls like a gorilla...too cute! (he was the first baby I held after Grady went to heaven)

Their friendship is just comfortable. There is no other word to describe it.

I didn't worry about my house being perfect. I pointed and they helped themselves in my kitchen. Shannon loves blankets, and after lunch she grabbed one and snuggled up on my sofa. I'm very blessed to have them, and other friends in my life, whom I'm completely comfortable with, almost like they're my sisters. Just to laugh and be myself, not worrying about being judged. Just being real and honest like we've always been. They were part of my "group" that I blogged about here.

I'm thankful and blessed, and I don't take it for granted for one second!



  1. this picture makes me so miss our group! glad you guys got to see each other. love you.

  2. Tonya, that is just awesome! Those friendships are precious huh? You look absolutely precious... I can't believe you are getting so close... God is carrying you each step of the way... I am praying every day that your glider just gets plain worn out from so much use come August... love you friend!

  3. Love your comfortable list! I'm glad you have good friends to fellowship with that get you. I wasn't reading your blog when some of those posts were written, so it was neat to "catch up". Thinking about you today!

  4. I am so happy that things are going well for you. You look healthy and beautiful being pregnant. I liked the picture with your friends.

    I like comfortable clothes too...since I am heavier than I have been. UGH...but I also enjoy several of the comfy items that you mentioned.

    Have a happy 4th!
