The past couple months have brought huge changes to our family. Lee’s new job A brand new nephew–he’s SO CUTE! A school year that’s a little more laid back A new church…. I haven’t really shared about this change yet. It’s not even a 100% change, but we needed to make some changes in order […]

Grammarly Review & GiveAway

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

I’ve not been posting this faithfully! Sorry. I’m on the relaxed phase of my diet–basically low carb but not super low. The only rules are to maintain the weight loss by not eating any sugar or starch. I’m hoping that I will do well! I’m taking a break until January. I think that will be […]

I’m having a birthday pretty soon and it’s the big 4-0! I am not sure I’m mature enough to be 40! Really! I am NOT going to post a “40 things I’ve learned in 40 years” post because I think those are a little arrogant. And I’ve learned FAR more than 40 things in my […]
