Oh My Dears....

I can't believe it was MAY when I last posted!

Moving on: more surfing results and a confession.


Huffington Post

They have a comedy section and a celebrity section that i adore.



what a fun idea.



Oh. My. Goodness.

and now for the "Confession" of sorts.

where have i been since may?  becoming the Coupon Queen.

here's whats gotten into me - I need to quit my job.  my used to be awesome, was in gainesville, had great benefits, paid really well job has become the exact opposite of the aforementioned.

there are these kids that need me.  they are going to need me more in the future.  i will make it work with what i make doing anything but my "job".

This last year has really given my spiritual growth a mature, grow up and look to the days ahead feeling that I have really come to peace with.   Next Sunday at The Highlands we are really getting into The Story, which is the Bible in a novel type version.  I read the first three chapters in one sitting the other Wednesday night.  All the facts were there and it was true to The Word :) Amazing.

Most importantly it's allowed me to listen to God and hear Him tell me that I CAN DO IT without the security/annoyance of my job.  He's been preparing me all year to do this.  Literally, PREPARING ME.

My next post is about my latest adventure: homemade laundry soap.
(yes, you read that correctly)

Because It's SOOO true!

Antoine Dodson, a brief history

For those of you who may not know who Antoine Dodson is, we will start with the first video I ever saw of him.


In my quest for more of this fascinating fella, I found an App for the iPhone that breaks his speech down into little phrases.  For example: "You are so dumb"  "You are really dumb" "For real" and my personal favorite "You can run and tell that." with a "Homeboy" added at the end.

Today while surfing around I came across this awesome photo:

I just love the internet.

Still here.....

.....still dealing with our crazy lives!

Good News:

Ally lost a rotten tooth and her breath has been downgraded from "incredibly horrific and smelly" to "pretty darn bad"

BeeBee now calls me by name, going on three weeks now!

Bad News:

A lovely family friend just passed suddenly from a brain anurism. I have full confidence he's having a great time with the Lord.

Papa has had medical setbacks and is now staying at a rehab facility for *hopefully* a few weeks or months.

2 under 3?

Z Man


I love these kids like I'd love my own. They also remind me that having 2 under 3 would not work for me.

My first try with Picnik


This is the first picture I took with my iPhone last year.
I just took it out and snapped a quick pic of my favorite subject.

A few weeks ago I found what I guess is an App for the internet.  Having to type that sentence makes me feel old.  Facebook? I've had that since I was at GSC and you HAD to be a student to have a facebook account.  MySpace?  I had one and I didn't like it.  Twitter?  I have one now and I follow SteveMartinToGo.

I digress.

I uploaded this picture and pushed a few buttons, pulled a few levers.  Literally.


No more kitchen floor.  No more foot/leg.  And...
He's All Shiny!!

I ended up creating a picnik account because all they wanted was your e-mail and zip code.  It allows you to save and upload more than one photo at a time.

Winter Wonderland

This is my last attempt at sledding for the day.  I'm not sure about posting videos and whatnot, but it looked fairly simple...so if it looks stupid - sorry!

No work for me Monday or Tuesday, but Chris had to go in for a while on Tuesday.  He has just arrived home. Looks like we'll be sledding some more before the week is out!

ps, this is just kind of a test blog for the video.  i have a lot of videos that i want to share!
