Grilling Goodness

Go to visit Tina here to play along.

Grilling Goodness

1. What's the heaviest thing in your purse? a sippy cup

2. Do you mostly use cash or debit/credit cards? all the above, it depends on the purchase

3. Do you cut your hair shorter in the summer or pull it up a lot? I pull it up. I used to have very long hair but since I've had kids I tend to keep it shorter. But I prefer it to be long enough to pull back.

4. Do you like your man scruffy or clean shaven? I like scruffy.... but when he cleans up and cuts his hair and wears something besides work clothes.... it does make my heart skip a beat *blush*

5. What have your children done/said to embarass you lately? Well, LadyBug is working on not saying things that might hurt the feelings of others... so instead of telling me I look old, she said I look much newer when I put my makeup on.

6. Do you use plug-in type air fresheners around the house?I do those lysol spray ones and glade fans. With allergies in the house I can only use Apple Cinimmon in the Fall and Winter and Lavender Vanilla in the Spring and Summer.

7. Do you have any interest in the NBA or NHL finals? (Do you even know who's competing?)I'm sorry, what was the question?

8. What is weighing heavily on your mind lately? To be quite honest, with so much going on, I have just given it all to God because I can't carry it. So really I only worry over the small stuff.

What Was I Supposed To Be - Ray Boltz

this is why I love him Thursday

Because...... why not?!
That is why!

Oh and since he didn't have side work last night.......

He came in, ate dinner, talked to us, played with the girls........

And DID NOT turn on the TV!!!

What a man~
What a man~
What mighty, mighty, Good man!


This has nothing to do with today's post but I am so excited I wanted to share anyway.
My baby sister went for her very first prenatal check up today.
She has a beautiful 1 cm long sweety that will be spoiled, like nobody's business! I can't wait ('cept I have to, for nine months) to be the aunt. Since Bobby and I are both the oldest we don't have nieces or nephews.

Oh, but the times are a changin'! Now I get to hold them without fear of dreaded spoilage, (even though some might accuse me of doing that with my own angels)
I do feel it is necessary to help out parents by following their house rules even when the little stinker is at your own house... I have learned that only grandparents are afforded the right to contribute to the dreaded spoilage.... because after all they raised our butts, they deserve it!
So, DD, I solemnly swear -'cept, I don't believe in swearing- to abide by your house rules when I am watching over your little angel. Because my time will come to contribute to spoilage. So long as you allow me to: kiss, hug, transport ~ in an approved car seat that is fastened so snug in the car that hurricane force winds could not move it, feed, nurture, and pamper them while they are in my care.

So now I spoke my peace, Everett. And I done counted to three.


One more thing and then I promise I'll be done.....

I am going to be part of a Supernatural Worship Summit called LIFT starting tonight. It will take up most of my weekend but I can't wait to tell you how it goes!

I can see it!!!!

I'm so glad to be back!!! I can finally see my blog again. Please get comfy, I'm in the mood to catch up.
Here is a break down on my forever home and how it is coming along....

I got a beautiful sleek stainless range hood and shower tiles yesterday. The range hood was a chunk of money but beautiful and worth it! The tiles I picked up at Southeastern Salvage for .49 sq ft !! Just so you know a 10 sq ft box of tile is heavy and loading and unloading can be tiresome and dangerous! I also went to The Old Gray Barn today and picked up some things for LadyBug's nautical cottage themed room.

Here are the tiles now there is one less tile because I dropped the darn box on my ankle and broke one (at least I hope I only broke one) They are 3" x 6" snow white matte. Let me see if I can explain this well enough to give you a picture of my master bath...... when you walk in the door you will see the clawfoot, behind it will be the glass side of the shower and you'll see these tiles in a subway pattern. All soft whites, creams, and some soft blues.

This is why I said tile can be dangerous! I thought I broke something other than a tile at that moment, but the *Que the poor me, pitiful music* excruciating pain has subsided. Note the swollen, awful, boo-boo...?

While we were working over the weekend LuLu made herself a friend. She also met a lizard but he didn't like her as much as she liked him. Click on the picture to enlarge if you can't see her froggy friend.

Here are the things I found for LadyBug's room. It was only $15 after taxes! She (we) want a relaxing retreat kind of feel so I will refrain or at least try to refrain from buying anything else 'themed' to her room. All we need now is bedding, rug, apothecary jar (for sea shells) and a worn and very large chest to put at the end of her bed for toys. Oops I forgot the desk, she needs a desk too.... but that is it. Cross my heart. The boat thing is a picture frame, $3. And the crab is brass and his head opens to hide a treasure inside, $2.

This is the view I get when I head into town from my 'forever home' I have already become so attached to the place that I look for excuses as to why we can't leave just yet. Even after working there all day.

I have tons of ideas for the house I'd like to share but I'll spare you this time.
I can see it now, it is all coming together.
