Wellness Wednesday #4

Everything I am going to include in this post has to do with overall wellness.  Nothing makes me feel more alive than when I spend time with my family.  Let me share some of our time together this past weekend and what is going on in Colorado.


On Monday's blog post, I showed how Granddaughter Cassidy and I spent our Saturday.  Check it out HERE!

Sunday, began by attending a wonderful worship service at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano.

That afternoon, we went to Willow Bend Mall for another performance of
"The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe."

But first, I had a special lady to meet.

I first met Connie, or Nonnie as she is known on her blog, a few years back on Joyce's
Wednesday Hodgepodge.

I liked her immediately and knew we had a common bond in Jesus Christ.  We have continued to stay in touch through our blogging and talked often of one day meeting when I was in the Dallas area.

You will want to get to know her too on her blog, Nonnie's Random Thoughts.

It worked out that we were able to spend some time visiting before the play began.  It was like meeting an old friend.  She is as sweet and beautiful inside and out as I knew she would be.  This was such a special treat for me.

She was able to watch the first half of the play with me and meet my family.  I am so grateful for this opportunity and look forward to future visits with my new friend.

The play!

Ava Grace played the part of Susan, the older sister.

Of all times for me to forget my good camera, this wasn't a good one.

Queen Susan
She and four of her classmates were all in the play and two of their fifth grade teachers came to see them perform.  Such a meaningful thing for these thoughtful teachers to do.

 With her director, Christian Black, who has been so supportive of Ava Grace.

 Her sisters and brother-in-law are some of her biggest fans. 

Afterward, we went to Frisco to The Biscuit Bar, which is a new establishment owned by friends of our daughter and her husband.  It is such a neat place and oh my goodness, the best biscuits you will ever eat.

There is a wide assortment of fillings for the biscuits and you can't go wrong with any of them.  And the tater tots are so good.

It was a great ending to a great day.


Wonderful news coming out of Glendale, CO.

Our Jackson, played a great game on Saturday night and in fact made the winning points to win the game for the West.  You see his name listed above as one of the point scorers.

As a result, he was selected as one of the 30 2018 USA Rugby Collegiate All-American Team.  He is the big guy in blue on the far right of the picture above.

He is spending the rest of this week working hard to not only compete for 1st or 2nd Team All-American honors, but to play against the Raptors, a pro team on Friday night.  Geaux Jackson!

The game will be streamed live at 7 p.m. MT at this Link.

While Jackson is working hard, his dad and granddad are entertaining themselves by eating well, and exploring interesting places.

Today, they took a trip to Idaho Springs and enjoyed feeding some frisky chipmunks in their laps while waiting to go into the mines.

Literally in their laps!

 This duo is having the time of their life watching our Big Boy excel and spending time together.

Yes, being with family and new friends is what "Wellness Wednesday" is all about.

Hello, My name is Libby. I enjoy reading good books, painting, blogging, spending time with friends and whatever my "Heart" leads me to do. Welcome to Beauty Without Within.


  1. Elizabeth, I so enjoyed meeting you, too and felt the kindred spirit with you long before meeting you in person. It was also a pleasure to stay get to watch your darling granddaughter in the play and meet other members of your family as well. They all just exude the most sincere friendliness. Congratulations to the grandson for being chosen and I know Grandad and Dad are so proud, as are you and the rest of the family. Crossing my fingers for his team to win on Friday.
    Now ... about that Biscuit Bar! We pass by there almost every single day and say we are going to eat there one of these days. I just told Jay a few minutes ago that we really do have to do that. It looks so good.

  2. What a fun time you had with the girls. And, the Biscuit Bar, never have heard of such but sounds mouth watering. Enjoyable post!

  3. You have been busy! How awesome that Ava Grace (awesome name btw) was in such a fantastic production! The teachers coming to support the students was amazing too! As for the biscuit had me at tater-tots! ;-)
