What I Learned This Week

February 11, 2013

I had a glorious day. And by glorious, I mean there was no school today which means NO STUPID ALARM CLOCK FOR ME thankyouverymuch! And since there was no school, that also means I didn’t have to check any math homework. But, just in case you were wondering, Stevie did receive the requirements for yet another […]

Pep In My Step

January 29, 2013

It was a beautiful day in our neighborhood. The good news is, it was a wonderful, beautiful, perfect for January 70 degrees. The bad news is, this… As much as I love have the JEEP in the garage on cold January mornings, I miss having the SKY here at the house for rare 70 degree days in […]

My New Pal

January 23, 2013

I cleaned like a crazy person today. Actually, I cleaned and danced like a crazy person today. I had some clutter to put away, three week’s worth of mail to sort through, and some decor to change out. I linked up my iPhone with the bluetooth wireless speaker that McDaddy got for Christmas, blasted some Third Day, Toby Mac, and Selah and I […]

January 21, 2013

Do you have shoes in your closet that you haven’t worn for years, but refuse to get rid of? If so, you will absolutely love this story. McDaddy participated in a 3-on-3 basketball tournament at our church this weekend. The teams were formed by drawing names from a hat. McDaddy was on a team with our friend Shawn, and […]

A Heavy Topic

January 14, 2013

Ok. *taking a breath* When I made the decision to compete in the local Biggest Loser Challenge, I hesitated about mentioning it here on the blog.
