My Funny Valentine

Wow, guys….. What. A. Week. It’s been one for the record books. There were Valentine’s Day school parties, Garen on the road two days, getting ready for helping with decorations for the school dance, and more “real work” than I can shake a stick at.

Chalkboard Quotes: Be the Reason Someone Smiles Today

A few years back, right after we moved into this house, my sweet mother-in-law gave us this frame. It was another color and didn’t have anything behind it. We debated between using it to hang wreaths or other stuff in it or get a large picture printed for it. But I had wanted a bigContinue reading “Chalkboard Quotes: Be the Reason Someone Smiles Today”

My Dad is one of my heroes.  It’s no secret that I adore him.  I’m proud of his accomplishments throughout his career, but I’m even more proud of the man he isContinue reading “My Dad turns 60”

And, boy,Continue reading “Dashboard Randomness: Sunrises and Bluebonnets”

Sweet Saturday: Daughter Day

A few weeks ago Anna and I enjoyed a day just one on one. We got our nails and toenails done- both in red. Then, after her beauty sleep, I took her to get her hair done. I felt like the coolest Mom ever (even though I know lots of other moms do this onContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: Daughter Day”

Photo Friday: I’m an Auntie

I actually don’t remember whether I’ve blogged about my new niece or not but she is an absolute doll. I got to see her again last weekend before the Odom family made their way back up North. She was baptized at my parents’ church over the weekend. Unfortunately, Kate had some disgusting bug causing herContinue reading “Photo Friday: I’m an Auntie”

What’s Your Favorite Flavor?

Tomorrow morning, I’ll officially be a “cookie mom.”  You know, the crazy ladies dragging their little girls around selling those addicting little round morsels of joy???  For those of you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m speaking of the ever-popular Girl Scout Cookies.

Super Easy Sangrias for a Crowd

As I said in my last post on Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies, we had friends over for Nacho Night last night. That definitely called for sangrias. I looooove sangrias! So I whipped some up. Or maybe I should say: I bought some sangria and fruit and put them together. So here’s my “recipe” since myContinue reading “Super Easy Sangrias for a Crowd”
