Friday Letters


Dear God, We got through another week huh? I know each day is a blessing even when I am not happy with how things are going. I keep trying to remember that my life plan/schedule is in your hands more than mine. I just fool myself thinking I am in control. Thank you for keeping my kids and family safe and for my many blessings. Dear Dr. Phil, Yesterdays show was so sad..and I am sure today's continuation will be just as sad.

Wednesday Hodgepodge!


Happy Wednesday Friends! Its time for another Wednesday Hodgepodge with Joyce from over at From This Side of the Pond ....this is always such a fun linkup.. join in anytime! Hope you enjoy

1. It's  been said that one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day. Do you think that's true? Do you find that an easy exercise most mornings? What's something positive you told yourself today? If you missed that boat, what's something positive you could tell yourself tomorrow?

Absolutely I believe that. I read my prayer book as soon as I get up with my coffee. I think it puts me in a better frame of mind for the upcoming day. I also read an evening prayer book before I fall asleep. Today, I told myself no matter what happened yesterday, today will be better. But just in case you want to see what prayer books I read and why I read them enjoy the video below if you like! 



2. There will be karaoke at the next party you attend...are you in? Or will you be faking a sore throat?


 Gosh I pray there won't be any karaoke. Believe me.. people don't want to hear me sing!

3. January 29th is National Puzzle Day...what's something you've found puzzling recently?


Well yesterday 5.. I repeat 5 light bulbs went out in the same day. I was pretty damn shocked and if you want to hear more about it.. click here.

4.  Jigsaw, crossword, acrostic, logic, sudoku, word search...what's your favorite kind of puzzle, and when did you last work one?


Chalkboard Love, Wedding BlogWord Search is my favorite. I use to do it as a kid all the time and now not so much unless I am flying or traveling.


5. Recently a writer by the name of Amy Glass ruffled feathers with a post she wrote saying she looks down on young women with husbands and kids and she's not sorry. Among other things, she says women will be equal with men when we stop saying house work and real work are equally important. You can read the whole piece by clicking here.

What say you? Do you think men and women are equal in the 21st century? Why or why not?


I think we are closer to being equal than we ever have been but men are still being paid more than women in the same job situation. So I know we are not equal. I think housewife housework is equally as important because our homes have to be taken care of for our children and families. Everyone has a right to their own opinion but I think that woman needs to rethink what she is saying. 

6. What's a product you've noticed in the grocery store that you'd like to try, but haven't yet?




I have been wanting to try the organic all natural uncured hot dogs. I was going to buy them this past week but was scared I wouldn't like them. So I bought my normal hot dogs but maybe sometime soon I will try the more healthy dogs!

7. The author, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) was born this week in 1832 (January 27th).  Which character from his celebrated novel, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, would you most like to meet, and why? Here's a link to a character list if you need help on this one. 

Of course it would have to be....

The Cheshire Cat -  A perpetually grinning cat who appears and disappears at will. The Cheshire Cat displays a detached, clearheaded logic and explains Wonderland’s madness to Alice.

8. Insert your own random thought here.


Yesterday was not a good day for me. I am doing my best to shake it off but I am not happy at all about my broken camera. I plan on going out Friday and getting another. I almost hit our savings to go get another one today but I think telling my husband to not get into the savings for random things and then I do it.. would not be the smartest thing. So I am waiting a couple days using the backups I have. Plus is was freezing here all day yesterday and its not much warmer today. I am just happy to be in my warm house with a fresh day. 

Happy Wednesday!

Tuesday Night Thoughts


KWEJK.pl - Najlepszy zbiór obrazków z Internetu!* Its finally snowing here in South Carolina. Which totally sucks because its FREEZING OUTSIDE! I feel sorry for all the stray animals around here.

* I have been maintaining the fire all day long which also sucks because its a lot of work to keep a fire going all day and night non stop. Hoping it helps lower our $500 Electric bill. Yep.. you read it right. $500 big ones for last months bill and the same for this month. We are going to go broke heating this big house up.

* I broke my handheld Cannon Camera today. I have backups so its not life ending but it sure made me one very unhappy girl.

* I totally blew off my schedule yesterday making today much busier for me.

* I have been in a total grump ass mood all day.

* I did however get a lot of good giggles from this video on TMZ!

* I would love love love a glass of wine tonight but husby thinks driving on the bad roads for wine is not such a good idea. Staying in tonight.. and staying sober.

* I husband must think he is a window because he can't stay out of in front of me.. blocking the tv over and over and over... you get the idea.

* Jackson is thrilled tonight because he has no school tomorrow! He is beyond happy and that he doesn't have to get up early.. and I have to admit, its going to be nice sleeping in.

* Our damn cat Penoi won't stop meowing at me. He talks wayyyyy too much and to be very frank....he's getting on my last nerve.

* I lucked out with cooking tonight...after the day I had, the boys eat leftovers. Thankfully they didn't bitch about it.

* There were grounds in the coffee this morning. Total disaster and had to make a new pot. What a mess.

* I think Gluten Free is a bunch of crap. I got educated on Youtube about saying that then the VERY NEXT DAY they had a segment on Rachel Ray saying LESS that 1% of the US is allergic to gluten. Told ya.. its a fad for most.

* My husband threatened me today that if I drove on the icey roads, he would take my kids away. Yea.. thanks dad. Needless to say, I stayed home.

* For some strange reason my best friend worried herself silly that she upset me last night while I slept like a baby with not a thought in my mind. I doubt she could really ever piss me off.

* I was looking online for a new pair of sandals and I found a pair. $695. Guess I either have to do a lot of youtube videos and blogging if I plan on buying them because husby would die if I spent our money on $695 dollar sandals.

* I need a new day...going to go get in a hot bath and try to relax.

Hope you had a better day than I did!

Weekend in Review w/ VIDEOS & VLOGS

Monday has arrived with such force today. I stayed up way too late last night watching the grammys and then Downton Abbey.. needless to say I haven't had much sleep. The only thing keeping me up right now is the strong ass coffee I am drinking. I do feel blessed that husby does so much better on the morning shift than I do. He has been GREAT about getting Jackson up for school and not making me drag myself out of the bed. School here for the kids starts so early. At 7:30am the first bell rings. Through all my years in school and even in college I don't think I ever had a class start that early. They do get home sooner but I think its awful early for kids.
This weekend was super nice. I loved spending it with my family.

Friday:

Friday was such a realxing night. We must be getting old because we were all too happy to stay home. Well, we did run a few errands but we were back home pretty fast. Plus being its freezing outside, we all like to stay in. Scott however is getting spring fever. He broke out the putting matt and started to practice. But the entire house of kitty cats decided it was there time to practice their own golf games! They were totally mesmerized. He kept putting they kept guarding the holes like they were hockey goalies! It was priceless.

Saturday: 
Saturday came soon enough. I spent a lot of time planning trying to figure out what was going on this upcoming week. I really believe that planning your day leads to living your life. Sometimes we all need a little help with all the things floating around in our brain. I like to get all those thoughts down in my planners. Then it was time to move on to our smoothie saturday. For brunch on Saturdays and sometimes on Sundays, we love to make smoothies. Jackson actually suggested I start recording them because he loves it so much. So I took his idea and recorded our first Smoothie Saturday video! :) I think each Saturday I will record a new smoothie recipe that I can share with you guys. This past weekend it was - My Super Smoothie - with berries and such. Soooo yummy! Also on Saturday I seemed to spend a lot of my time at the damn fireplace. It really does take a lot to maintain a fire. I spent most of the day scooping ashes, tossing big pieces of wood in...getting splinters...but having the house nice and cozy made it totally worth it. I couldn't have been happier when husby came home and took over those duties for me. 

 
Sunday:

Sunday came easy for all of us around here.  I woke up to a yummy hot cup of coffee that Scott made. I make the coffee Mon - Sat and Scott does it on Sunday. Well, I almost felt like a princess with my delicious cup of coffee. I just laid back and enjoyed it sip by sip! It took a while on Sunday for me to get motivated to go do the grocery shopping. I got my little list, my new purse, and headed out. I love that my list stuck right to my purse. I was able to see everything I needed without having to carry a list around with me. It worked great and I was out there pretty fast. I love having a well stocked freezer and pantry because it makes our weekly shopping so much easier. I don't have to buy a ton of stuff because I already have it. I came home and enjoyed a night with Scott, Jackson and the animals. Its funny Benny ( In the pic below ) loves him so much. He is always on his lap or laying on his chair. We ended the night watching the Grammy's. Gosh I have a lot to say about it but maybe I will save that for another post. Taylor Swift however, sounded and looked so beautiful.


I kinda wish I wouldn't have told my daughter that it was on last night. Queen Bey opened the show. Totally not appropriate for 8pm tv. Not like I am a prude but I am a mom of a 12 year old little girl and the last thing I want her seeing is a singer/stripper who is singing about " Drunken Love". Yea.. I guess I should have known it wasn't a family show and totally regret my daughter watching that. But I will have another post up soon about my thoughts on the grammy's. Tune back in for that one.. :)

Here are my weekend vlogs that you can watch...if you like!




Here are the Videos for over the weekend in case you are interested! 






I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a great new week. I have lots to do today including filming the giveaway winner to the Epicare Facial Hair Remover in just a bit. If you entered please come back to see if you are the winner!
