Today I was looking at the pouring down cold rain and wondering what to make for supper. Then I stood in front of my open refrigerator staring at the leftover ham from Easter and wondered what else can I do with it? Then a friend suggested ham and potato soup. It sounded wonderful and then for some reason that I can’t explain I started craving…Continue

I haven’t been blogging a lot lately because I've been really busy with a surprise that my hubby brought home, a new desk! A big executive desk that was given to him for free! Ain't God grand? I think so!
So what was the first thing I needed to do? Make it mine and since it wasn't my hubby’s desk from childhood or an antique that someone gave…Continue

I love decorating for banquets! This year I had to go really simple because I've had that yucky cold that’s going around and won’t let go. But I think my girls, their friends and I pulled it off! We had a great time at the banquet and it’s always sad when another season comes to an end but getting to hang out with these great kids makes it all worth it. I love homeschool! Have I said that lately? …Continue

Have you heard about the German family that came to the U.S. seeking asylum from their government so they could homeschool? If you haven’t or even if you have then you better pay attention. It doesn't even matter if you support homeschooling or not. There is an agenda within our own government that we better wake up and pay attention…Continue

I’ve been re-using a plastic soap dispenser for awhile now and I really didn’t like it. So after looking for inspiration, I made my own. I used a glass Starbuck’s bottle that I had from my daughter's graduation party, we had used it as a vase and it’s been sitting in my…Continue
I love smoothies! My son Spencer loves apple juice. Apple juice is what I use in my smoothies. But almost every time I go to make a smoothie the apple juice has mysteriously vanished. Today was no exception. So what am I supposed to do? How do I make a…Continue

My tree topper…I am in love with her. Todd bought her for me when we were first married. I fell in love with her because she has brown hair and the most delicate dress and wings. The star is a new addition this year. I needed a star above the manger and it fit the bill. It’s actually a tree…Continue

This week is a tight one. I had just $50 to spend on groceries. We are a family of 5 and three of us are teenagers! How in the world do I do this? I took a deep breath and Emily and I headed to Wal-Mart to get groceries. I didn’t even have coupons to take so this would be a serious stretch of the imagination. But I knew we could do it!
Here’s what we bought: Head of romaine lettuce, cucumber, 1 broccoli crown, package of Dill Ranch mix, sour cream, egg…Continue

I lost something special to me today. My diamond fell out of my engagement ring. I can’t believe it. My hubby gave me that ring almost 23 years ago. My heart has sunk and I’m so sad. I know that it is just a diamond and that maybe one day it can be replaced. But, it will never be the one that he gave me when we were so young. Not that we’re old mind you!…Continue

Just a little funny for you today to kick off the school year. Just wait until the kids hit middle school and high school and then try to keep up with their socialization: Work, co-ops, sports, youth group, dual enrollment classes, back and forth with friends, boyfriends/girlfriends, missions trips, and the list goes on! I still laugh…Continue

I’m taking some time from my usual blogging for this very important announcement….I’m auditing my blog. Yikes! Why you may ask? Because it’s time to take a long hard look at my blog, where it’s been and where it’s going.
I think it’s a good thing to clean out the fridge, the closet, my desk periodically, so why not my blog? I’m sure I’ll learn all kinds of neat facts about my blog. For example, did you you know that the most popular blog post that I’ve ever done…Continue

Today I took my kids to Chick-Fil-A. We love us some Chick-Fil-A any day of the week! But as all of you know, today was special, for many reasons. First of all, as a Christian, then as a citizen of the United States and third as a mom.
Typically, I don’t ask the political affiliations of any restaurant or store that I…Continue
