Being a client

Today I went to my spa as a client instead of an owner. And I loved it. Showing the place to my sister in law, knowing and trusting that she would get an amazing massage and then enjoying my friend's facial services made me appreciate even more what our business provides. From the minute I put my key into the Schlage lock, I look at everything critically. But having the door open for me, with everything all set up made me see a whole other side.

A little nugget...

that i took from my devotions today...

from 1 Thessalonians chapter 5:16-18. It was just what I needed! (isn't God good?)

16 Be joyful always; 17 pray continually; 18 give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

I just wanted to share it with you all! :)

Have a great day!

This kid makes me happy.

I took this picture of Joe and I at my mom's yard sale. He hates it. I think it's fantastic.

Out of the blue phone call

Today I was laying on the couch, rifling through magazines, avoiding ads about how to get rid of acne while tearing out images to use in my collages. This is happiness on any day for me, especially when it is quiet.
My phone rings with Chris' assigned ringtone (I'll Cover You from RENT). When I pick up the phone he asks, "Are you hungry?" I reply, "Yes."
Chris: Do you want me to bring you something?
Me: Sure. Where are you?
Chris: Don't worry about it. I'll surprize you.
Me: Yeah! But can I get a 7up for sure?

I love it when the random reminders of love come through.

Links to our blogs??

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this... but I had an idea.

I was wondering what everyone thought of adding links to our blogs on the sidebar? It would be nice to be able to have easy access to each of your blogs because sometimes I forget the URL's....

I could do it for everyone if it is something everyone wanted... I know Karianne has a lot on her plate!

Thanks so much for being my first AIDS Walk 2008 donor! Your support means so much to Christopher and I. You rock.

Your support makes me happy.

You know what makes me happy?

Weezer. No, not the band, although they're alright. Weezer as in my good friend from Nashville.

Tacoma is so very far away from Nashville.

That's all, folks.

A Friend that Feeds Me

In more ways than one! She feed my mind, my hopes, my emotions, and my family. And I appreciate it to no end.

Vegetarians, avert your eyes...

Look what Lex brought to me at work the other day:

Two huge T-bone steaks straight from her freezer! We saved them for the weekend when Chris grilled them with salt and pepper only. This was the first incredible taste of red meat that I had since getting pregnant and it was heaven.

The next night we had this:

Steak salad! Which is one of my favorite meals in the universe. This time I had to avoid the crumbled cheese scattered all over the top, but it was still amazing.
Now I'm hungry.

I'm Tired of Death

First my Grandparents pass away, then my great aunt Rosie, my beautiful Pearl, now my DH's grandparents, and my beloved cats who are now living at my parents' house are nearing the end of their time on this earth...

I am so tired of death. I keep telling God that I am NOT Job. They say he will never give you more than you can handle...

Our Sumo is lonely.

We needed a shot of new life in our household.

Wish us luck.

This link is not to a blog that I frequent. In fact, I just found it tonight. But, posts like this bring me joy like you cannot imagine. I hope that you feel the same.

Allow Me to Introduce

I'm putting this up on all my blogs. Enjoy. It just gets better every time you read it.

The Baby Likes Ice Cream

And I normally don't!
This week I have had a Jamocha shake, a scoop of nutty coconut on a sugar cone, and I have even taken bites of chocolate ice cream straight out of the carton, straight out of the freezer! And we shouldn't even start on the amount of rootbeer floats that have went down this throat. But, those kind of don't count as I like those all of the time if they are made with soft serve. I noticed that the ice cream parlor in our neighborhood is advertising a franchise for sale. I don't think that I would have even noticed the sign if I wouldn't have been pregnant. Totally is taking after it's dad, just like the other two.

Nora Roberts

I always try to keep a paperback in my purse in case I am caught waiting somewhere. Today was a perfect example, as we were having a new key programmed for the car, which was supposed to take 15 minutes, but took and hour and 15 minutes. Did I get grouchy? A bit. But I also got a chance to read my book uninterrupted in a waiting room with a fan.
For the past month I have kept The Broker in my purse by John Grisham, who I normally like. But I figured out for stop and go reading, that book didn't work out so well. On Monday I went to the used book store and got a new to me series by Nora Roberts and have been captivated since. I think that I'm halfway through the first one! For light reading, she is the best as far as I'm concerned. She is much more interesting than readingdiet pill reviews.

After 3 days at home

This is what my two will look like tomorrow morning. Here they are, ready to attack the day. One is on the way out the door to tennis lessons, while the other is out the door to finally reconnect with his best friend Omarion, who he hasn't seen the whole 3 day weekend. That is cause for grief since they are attached at the hip and have been since they were babies. No more home theater entertainment for these two, they are raring to go interact with society again!

When I need a good laugh, I scroll through the maternity shirts at cafepress. Some of them I would never wear, but a lot of them have me laughing out loud. I'll be sharing them from time to time. I should be looking at something educational like new children's books but you all know how that goes.

Happy 4th, Girlies!

Although so far I have spent the 4th on my laptop computer, the weather is cooler than it has been this week and the feeling around the house is low key.
Chris is off work, there is a Law and Order marathon on tv, and the kids are inside and outside, pretty much entertaining themselves.
No real plans for tonight, everything is open for a decision or we may just keep things simple for a Friday nite.
I hope that you are having a relaxing and fun day.

Happy July 4th!
