The 4-1-1

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Thank you everyone for the congratulations about our new “project”!!! We’re so excited and sometimes I can’t quite believe it’s true. Well, when all I can do is stagger to the couch and fall back asleep, I know it’s true. I’ve already had 2 ultrasounds because I had some early spotting. It is very encouraging […]

Every Perfect Gift~Dorothy Love Book Review

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

I received the opportunity to review this book from LitFuse Publicity. I reviewed the second book in this series, so I said yes. Plus I couldn’t resist the pretty cover! I enjoyed this book about Sophie Caldwell and her attempt to bring the newspaper of her childhood hometown back to life. As a woman in […]

Working On A Project & Need Your Input

Since most of my reviewing obligations are on hold for December, I’ve been working on a new long term project to keep me busy. (I do have a book review coming in a day or so though.) Check out my Pinterest board I created for my project and come back here and tell me what […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

  I’ve been slacking to tell the truth this Tuesday! We’ve had a few Christmas treats–I’ve had some carbs…. I’m working on getting my exercise in–still Walk Away the Pounds and TTapp once in awhile. I tried a pilates dvd last night. I think it’s like TTapp. It looks like you’re doing NOTHING but I […]

  We’re excited it snowed finally. Ok let me rephrase that–James is excited it finally snowed. He made a cute snowman yesterday which I meant to take a photo of to post on here but I didn’t get it done yet! I’m thankful for the church service yesterday. The message was a blessing. I’m thankful […]

Sometimes My Blood Boils

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

This morning while perusing Facebook, I saw a book that I mentioned on A Dusty Frame. It’s about a parent going to jail so I clicked on the page to see what they were saying. They were making fun as were all the comments left. “Haha let’s write a book about your mom is so […]

Rethinking the Christmas Story~repost

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

This year, I’ve heard multiple things that blew my mind in regard to the Nativity story! We never believed there were only 3 wise men. They traveled a very long way. They were well to do. It was a dangerous journey–robbers, terrain, etc. They probably brought many servants with them and who’s to say there […]
