{I ask. He always answers.}

I have been in the tub reflecting. . .

I have been talking to God about this and that. . .
Got out and slathered on some of Lily's Justice Cotton Candy Lip Gloss. . .still thinking. . .started pecking into the oblivion. . .with a constant "news feed" of things on my mind. . .
and in my heart. . .
Being Salt & Light. . .

Memorizing Jeremiah 29:13
"When you come look for me, you will find me.". . .
My sister teaching a little girl to tie her shoes at school. . .a very poor girl. . . with very dirty clothes. . .
The girl I know that is watching me. . .
The lady I write letters to . . . while she is in prison. . . whom just lost her dad. . . and couldn't go to his funeral. . .
Things I do right. . .
Things I do wrong. . .
Things I do way wrong. . .
The Mary & Martha Story. . .Mary's less became more. . . Martha's more became less. . .
The dear friend of mine. . . whom chose to remain silent. . . walk into Lane Bryant. . . and buy me a gift. . . no hidden agenda. . . .just love. . . for me. A once in a lifetime friend. . . .
Jesus passing through Jericho. . . leaving the crowds. . . spending time with 1 (Zacchaeus), and changing his life. . . forever. . .
Me. . . losing a friend. . .for making some bold statements concerning my thoughts, faith, and convictions. . .
Me. . . making mends with a friend. . . using Jesus' eyes and skin . . .
John 15:12 & 13
This is my command: Love one another the way I have loved you.
You promised. And you have kept it. I am not equipped, but you have given me all I need. . .
I am seeking. . . . I have found.
I love this man. . . his name is Jesus.

I am having a Scentsy Basket Party!

I have been out, and when I melted my first square yesterday I was reminded of!
I have all these wonderful little tester scents if you wanna take a sniff!

New Spring Scents!
Look! They have all the sports now!

Check out the cute little surf board one!
The 10% off warmer for the month of February is beautiful too!
So, if you need anything just let me know. . .
I would be glad to drop off basket to your porch!
If you don't have a Scentsy, find your local lady!

{Shaina has a Birthday!}

S. Meeker turned "30" this week. . .

These little ones helped her celebrate. . .

Grape Kool-Aid.

A good way to start out your 30's, I think.
Happy Birthday Shaina!

{Are you kidding me? You must be joking, right?}

I need to hang-it-up. . . or be hung-up.

I am C-R-A-N-K-Y. . . .


You know?

When the question is not. . . what is on your nerves BUT whats not on the nerves. . . .

I could rewrite A. Morrisettes "Ironic" song. . . these could be some of my lines. . .

3 letters to mail .90 cents in the postage meter.

Am I hungry again? I just ate.

Not just cold. . . again. . . freezing. . .

Is my tire low again?

Is that candy in your little hands, little girl? Tell your folks you cant bring candy, little girl. Okay?

Who did you say was going to be on the team?

What is that smell?

Are these clothes clean or dirty?

Son, when you don't raise the toilet seat urine runs all underneath. . . here, let me show you. You see that?

Why didn't I point the ends of those instead of rounding them?

I am just going to leave the silver wear for the 4th time and reload the dishwasher.

When was the last time I talked to my husband? At least I have passed him on the highway twice this week.

Instead of getting something out of your closet, I would prefer you to dig through the stuff that hasn't been folded and put away. Save me a few steps could you?

Lord, tell me I didn't get an overdraft charge on that Rt 44 I bought at Happy Hour.

Don't worry. I am going to hibernate tomorrow.

Although, please remind me to come out by Friday to make it to my hair appt. . . since I no-showed last week. . . people that "no show". . . mmm, mmm, mmm. . . no comment.

If you need some cheering, head over here. . (

It will either cheer you or depress you. . . it's a real toss up.

I would live on the boat. No joke.

{Yay!!!!! or Nay.}

This mirror. . .
has now filled in the gaping space in between these lamps. . .
Its just leaning. Which means #1 No holes in the wall. #2 I had to ask for no help hanging.

This round mirror has been stashed in my closet. . .

I gave it a quick "lean" on my headboard to see what it might look like. . .

What do ya' think?
It's okay. . . you wont hurt my feelings. . .

{Friends and Family}

Today I was privileged enough to spend time with my good friend Angela. . .
and my Sister-n-law, DeAnna. And, of course, my sweet boy.

My eyes look tired. . . shift change. . . I am tired. Late Night Movies and dipping. . .

{Thanks Wonka}

I stayed up waaaayy late and watched a movie with Brad.
I ate so much Fun Dip. . . my thumb is stained green. . . I took a bath. . . my thumb is still green.

No hiding my evidence of Razapple Magic & Cherry-YUM-DIDDLY Dip. . .
Talk Later.

{Jesus is Sunshine in my Soul}

I adore this song. You can listen to it over and over and over on my "work blog"! And get a little sunshine in your soul. Doesn't that sound wonderful? share today. . .
What is one verse you have underlined in your Bible?
Here is one I have circled (I should underline and highlight it too). . .
Proverbs 21:23 The Message
Watch over your words and hold your tongue;
you'll save yourself a lot of grief.
Mmm, Mmmm, Good.

{Just lean it}

Its still a toss up where "lil' ole' mirror" will hang. I originally bought it for above my bed. Well, when I ever so gently leaned it up there. . .it needed something else. You know the old "one thing calls for another". I am trying to avoid that.

Option #2 is in between those lamps over there on the sofa table. I have high hopes of pictures going there, but in the meantime mirror could cozy up there.
Option #3 is the other bare naked wall above my dining table. . .

I have been seeing all sorts of blogs talk about "leaning" opposed to "hanging", so for now she is leaning in between the lamps in the living room. I will snap a photo and show ya' in a bit.
Still in the market for just the right "decor item" for above my bed. . .the right 1 item.
Talk Later.

{Clean ~Movies ~ Cars ~ Spears ~ Exercise}

Scenes from last weeks cleaning spree. . . We had a good day today. . . Brad deemed it "Hobbs Family Fun Day". . . funny, huh? Bless his heart.
We ate at Cheddars, browsed at Lifeway, Petco, and Books-A-Million. . . love, love that place. Oh yes, and I ran in Lane Bryant. There was a green shirt/outfit type thing I REALLY wanted, but it has a 49.50 price tag. . . OLD NAVY had cotton tees for $5 today, so that was better. But I am going to spy that shirt and pray it hits the clearance rack.

We took kiddos to see Alvin and Chipmunks. You know, Alvin really gets on my nerves. I think Theodore is more my speed. Anyways, cute movie, I guess.
We took a stroll through a couple of car lots. A SRX is heavy on my wish list. They are near impossible to find. Lucky for me they are old-lady-cars, so the ones I can actually begin to afford have very low miles. Hopefully we will strike gold soon. Well, actually black with a 3rd row seat.
Other random thoughts. . .
I love vitamin water, but "dragonfruit" taste like tuna.

I am likin' Brittney Spears lately.
I have exercised 2 days in a row. . . yep, you read me right. . .
