Young Life Lost

I’ve been a sort of absentee blogger for the past week or so. I’ve had a ton on my mind, especially since Sunday morning when I found out that my cousin was in the hospital and then on Monday that he had passed Sunday evening. I’m not going to discuss the circumstances of his death […]

A Moment of Silence

This is my cousin Jacob:Jacob is 16 years old, the same age as my brother, Joshua. Jacob passed away last night and if you are the praying type, please send one to our merciful God and ask Him to be with Jacob’s parents, friends, and family as they deal with this tremendous loss. Thank you.

Menu Plan Monday

As I was planning my dinner menu this week, I decided to go ahead and take the plunge and plan out all our meals for the week. Breakfast and lunch are flexible since I have a toddler and we all know that they are fickle eaters, but I will have everything on hand to make […]

Crockpots: The Best Invention Since Flushing Toilets

I’ve recently(in the past three months or so) fallen head over heels in love with my slow cooker. Growing up, my mom really only used her crockpot to make chili or soups, so I wasn’t fully aware of the scope of meals that could be made with it. Now that I am an adult, and […]

Homemade Peanut Butter and Chocolate Granola

I am in a breakfast rut. We have the same thing over and over and over again: oatmeal, cereal, eggs and pancakes, with the occasional french toast thrown in. I wanted to find something else to spice things up a bit, but would also be time efficient. With the exception of two days a week, […]

Would You Like Fries With That?(Week 6 of Bible Study Part 2)

“She is like the merchant ships,bringing her food from afar.”Proverbs 31:14 Sunny made a good analogy during this lesson: “I want to be like the merchant ships. I want to bring my food from afar – which means from the grocery store (we don’t have it so bad sisters) and not from the drive-thru window. […]

100th Post!

Well, here it is. My 100th post here on blogger! I’m surprised that it didn’t come sooner with the way I love to jabber! Since it is customary, or so I hear, to commemorate your 100th post by telling 100 things about yourself, I suppose I can try to muster up that many interesting(or not) […]

The Daddy Butt Pat

This week for “My Husband Rocks,” I’m going to tell you about the move that should be patented by Hubs. It is a sure fire way to get a sleepy baby to give up the fight and say hello to Mr. Sandman. It is called the “Daddy Butt Pat.” For any of you that have […]
