My Love Story

I have been tagged by MRS. and I am gladly playing along. I met my hubby in college and we were very good friends. (we would ride to church together) He was our sorority's Big Brother and I was his frat's Little Sister. I cheered in college and he left after three years (so smart) and headed to medical school. After I graduated. I taught a cheer clinic in his town and called him and said "let's go get a beer" days, remember? Anyhoo, we went and played tennis one night and I realized he was smart and athletic. When he talked about water skiing I think I realized "I'm digging you!". We dated two years and he asked me to marry him and then went to Africa for seven weeks to visit his brother, who was a medical missionary. We have been married 17 years. He's a pretty good roommate and still my dear friend...

Kelly's Kids

This is my last time to really be able to order as my youngest is 8, but thought these would be cute on vaca...I would wear a simple white t-shirt under the jumpers. Three Dot T's are my favorite.

Our Summer Vaca

Since I can't post my own pictures right now, I thought I would post our "cottage" we are staying at this summer. It is on the beach and has been renovated. It has 7 baths and 7 bedrooms and we are going with our friends from Atlanta. Sorry the pictures are small.

DevilRays National Champions

Although my camera is out of order, my friend sent me this photo from this past weekend. Daughter is on an All-Star team and they won in Chattanooga, TN for Youth Level 4. Now you see why I need to shed ten pounds as I don't like counting chins:o) oh, and son is getting a haircut this week.

It's A God Thing

My picture thingy is broken...I have bunches to load when it's fixed... So here is a story...We have a half mile loop around my house and I have walked many a lap around the neighborhood. The house across the street went into foreclosure about two years ago and I prayed and prayed over that house every time I passed it to put a nice family there with children. This summer, a family indeed bought the house...three children...two boys and one girl...He is the pastor of our presby church here and the wife is now one of my best friends. Amazing isn't even the word. The wife said when she entered the house, although not really her style, she knew this was the house God had meant for them. There are many things that happened along the way that were neat. Truly, God works in our everyday lives and we need to stop sometimes to listen and see it. I mean, where else could my child run across the street this morning in 26 degree weather, sporting an Underarmor and shorts and barefooted...She has a third child too!

Our First Snow!

But it didn't keep us home from school today. This was last night and the kids were so excited. I look like the bad mom since my child wouldn't even put on a coat or hat... They built a big snowman and had lots of fun thinking they could sleep in...not! It's the south, okay?

Working Too Much!

I said one day that I am working six hours a week (eight last week, don't laugh) at a cute little store here where I live. Mostly English Antiques, Vera Bradley and Pine Cone Hill..
But tomorrow I am stressed because I am working AND teaching two Marketing classes at my son's high school. The professor wants the class to make these and sell. I started these RAGJAX about three years ago. They are fun for games, parties, etc. Wish me luck...The Princess

My Friend Had Her Fourth...

Three girls and finally...a boy! I made several things yesterday when I heard the news. This is one last thing I am making plus all the girls a sweatshirt. What a Blessing!

Abandoning Another Book...

Yes, I left this...Is it me or is this overrated? It was going along great and then one scene just got me...William just ruins it. So, what I still want to know...How does Tom die? And, what happens with Ellen? I want to know the good stuff...not the rape, pillage and animal torture....
I then picked up Half Broken Things by Morag Joss which won a CWA Silver Dagger award...Only 303 pages and so far, very interesting.

Back to School...Finally!

I got more done this morning waking up at six a.m. than the entire holiday season it seemed. Which is inspiring as I thought I was just going to be a glutonous loser...I have downloaded some new fonts and tried these out for my friend who leaves her stuff and we usually forget about them! Hope they still fit! They are not perfectly trimmed yet, but you get the idea. I think the dots will be cute for Spring!

Three Beauty Products I love...

I need all the help I can get! I love the process of washing my face and applying lotions and potions...1. Creme De La Copper which is pretty pricey and I only purchase it because I get a discount 2. Boots' Restore and Renew $21.99 at Target and 3. Obagi skin care line

I'm Not A Numbers Person....!

HeckFire...I just want to lose ten pounds...okay? Oh, and, most importantly....Goooooo Dawgs, Sic Em' WoofWoofWoof!!


My hubbie and I have a challenge. We've both decided to lose 7 percent of our body weight. For me, 7 lbs. Stop the high calorie intake and exercise, exercise , exercise! I jogged five miles yesterday and I can hardly move today:o) He told me not to complain, it is a new year!

On the menu today: Pork Chops, green beans, rice, crowder peas and crescent rolls...My diet starts when the children go back to school!
***Note: I am 5'2" and weigh 132 so I want to weigh 125 realistically! I'm baking chocolate chip cookies right now! and, yes, I exercise regularly, but had not run in two weeks because I had been eating, drinking and being merry!
