I Believe

I believe that every single one of my prayers are heard, and I believe that not getting an answer is the answer. 

I believe that jewelry should only be allowed to be purchased by a man that is pure of heart. Something that beautiful should only be given in a beautiful loving moment.

I believe that I am a good person despite all my faults each and every day. 

I believe that I do not deserve my beautiful wonderful handsome sexy husband. How I tricked him into loving me I will never know....but he is the best thing in my life. I believe without him I would not be who I am now.

I believe that I will be a very good mom someday. 

I believe that Steven will be an amazing father that teaches life lessons without words but with the look in his eye. He will be the one to teach them things that they will remember forever and teach their children someday. 

I believe that the group of friends Steven still has that he grew up with are all good fathers, husbands, and friends. I believe that they will always be there and so will Steven for them.

I believe that wasting a day in front of the TV with popcorn is not a waste if it refreshed and reduced stress. I believe if you sit in front of the TV every day wasting time it is no longer therapeutic.

I believe everything should be handled in moderation. Too much of a good thing is never good. 

I believe that the summer of KremCaLaMiky was my summer. At that time of my life it saved me.

I believe Squid is a perfect personality for our family.

I believe knocking on wood will work. 

I believe a four leaf clover is lucky. 

I believe breaking a mirror or walking under a ladder is very bad luck. But I also believe that if you walk under it while working all bad luck is voided. 

I believe smoking is the most revolting thing you could do. It stinks but if you want to kill yourself that is your business. 

I believe Shredded Mini Wheat's are meant to be eaten soggy.

I believe that snow makes the ugliest things beautiful. 

I believe a lot of things....What do you believe in?

A Few Things That Make Me Say ::HOLY CRAP::

  1. The woman at Walmart in the cut off shorts and mullet. 
  2. A recipe for Meatloaf that called for crushed Cheez-It's.
  3. My cat when he jumps from the floor to the top of the Fridge. 
  4. The way some 13 year olds dress. 
  5. The pile of laundry in my bedroom, hallway, laundry basket and laundry room floor. 
  6. The amount of junk mail in my mailbox. 
  7. The price of 'cheap' furniture. 
  8. The speediness in which some women have kids. I don't think some women wait that recovery 6 weeks to have the humpity humpity again. 
  9. The drunk driving skills of my neighbor. 
  10. The amount of carbs some people can eat and never get fat
What makes you say Holy Crap?

My favorite Christmas movie is White Christmas. I would watch it on my grandma's lap every Thanksgiving and then every day till New Years. Excessive I know but I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I had a crush on Bing Crosby. I thought he was a stud. Weird? Yes.  My favorite song from the movie is 'Snow'. It is when they are on the train on the way to Vermont with the 'sisters'.
Gets you in the mood for Christmas doesn't it? This is digging a little deep but maybe their deep need and search for snow in Vermont to save the Inn was where my deep love for the snow came from???

What is your favorite memory as a kid during the holiday's? Make a post about it and link me to it. Leave a comment too of course. I love to hear about others traditions.

"The Runs"

This is totally random but when I saw Squid running around the house frantically it jogged a memory. 

When I was young we had a cat named Lucy. She was wacky. She would run around the house in a frantic manner just like Squid was earlier. I thought when someone had 'the runs' it would be like when the cat ran around. So I was terrified of 'the runs'.

Totally ridiculous eh?

I think I Want one of These

I have the full melting version but I want a wall version for the kitchen or my bathroom. I think it would be cute!!

Before and After

Much better eh? This is our front room. I think I might put a sofa bed in here and some cute lounge chairs. Maybe something like this????

Sister Wives

So Has anyone else seen this show? I'm totally glued to it. I am SO grateful that I am not them!!! I could never be in that type of family. I really do understand why they love it and that it is their way of following God. However, I feel that this type of lifestyle is wrong and should not happen in these modern days. There was a purpose for this 120 years ago but not anymore.

I am so grateful and so in love with my husband. I am so glad I am his #1 and ONLY one.
