:: WIWW & I should be in bed! ::

:: I should be in bed, really I should. It is 12:45 am -- I'm leaving tomorrow mid afternoon for the weekend, I have umpteen things to accomplish in a shy 2 hours while I only have one child in tow tomorrow morning, let alone the fact that my EVIL clock is set for 6 am to get my run on downstairs on our treadmill! ::

:: But I really wanted to join in on this weeks WIWW with Pleated Poppy --- I don't have photos, well, I have a few, but nothing really worthy of posting ::

:: See, I've been wearing my current favorite boots, these boots ::

:: I have seen multiple outfits worn by PP with these super cute boots, I then stalked down where she got them, and then wrecked my keyboard by drooling all over it. Just kidding ::

:: So, when we were in Arizona and I was shopping my face off, I found these $49.99 leather boots discounted for $34.99 then discounted again for $24.99. I declared to my Marm that I NEEEDDDDEEEDDD them. And found Mr. L to show him them. I wasn't looking for his opinion, I was just showing him what I was going to buy. He disagreed. He told me that he didn't think I should get them. I was {to say the least} disappointed, but respected his opinion ::

:: All through our trip I longed for these boots, I couldn't get them out of my mind, I LOVED them. So every Target we would drive by I would say "oh, we gotta go in and see if they have the boots!". Everyone moaned as Target stores are as frequent as Starbucks in Vancouver! ::

:: Finally, after the car show I ran to the Target store to have a look and see if the boots were there. They were, but they were priced at $34.99 not $24.99 so, sadly they stayed on the shelf! ::

:: It was the night before we left and there was one last Target we had not hit. I was determined to hit it up and see if we could find them. So, again, everyone entertained the crazy-boot-girl and came in with me. We all parted ways and I bee-lined it to the shoe section. I found a size 6. That won't fit my lovely monster of a size 9 flipper! But I was so disappointed as they were only $12.49!!!! Then the heavens opened {kidding, kinda} and there was a whole shwack of other sizes and one solo pair of size 9's with a $12.49 price tag on 'em ::

:: I ran to Paul and he said, well now that's better! And that was it, they were mine! ::

:: So here is the kicker, I was truly disappointed that {at the original $24.99 sale price} Mr. L didn't think they were worth it, however it wasn't worth me kicking up a fit and not respecting his opinion. I chose to leave them even though my heart r e a l l y wanted them and respect my husband instead. I prayed about it and left it with God. I feel that God respected me for my honor and respect for my husband and in turn got the boots for the best price possible. Isn't that great!??!! ::

:: Any way, now it's 1 am and I must hit the sack...Hopefully I'll get some actual shots of me in my new boots for next weeks WIWW! ::

:: Happy Friday Y'all! ::


:: Still ::

:: I have a few friends that are having terrible days, stinking terrible days today. Today my day is okay, but I do understand the feeling of a terrible day...and just so you know I have plenty of my own "terrible" days ::

:: I saw this youtube video posted on one of my friends facebook pages...and it reminded me of so many things, but one person in particular ::

:: This is her song, and every Monday, Wednesday & Friday when I walk into school with JJ and say hi to her son and he puts a huge smile on his face and sometimes I even get a wave or a high five I can't help but think that she has had her "terrible" days too and yet she still rests in His arms. Her life is a testament of God's unfailing love and faithfulness {just read her blog, she exudes grace & His love} ::

:: May this song bless all those I know, close and far that are having one of "those" days ;) ::


:: A few changes... ::

:: I have been having some issues with what I have been eating lately -- I have found that I react poorly to some different foods - have yet to put my finger on what triggers it, but in hopes to banish the excessive bloating and random hives, I have decided to take out wheat, and pretty much all grains except Quinoa & Flax ::

:: Long story short, today I was making a batch of Quinoa up in a pot on the stove and Jacob comes to me and asks me what I am making. I say oh just some food for Mama. He looks at it, pokes it and then replies - that is not for Mama, that is for the birds! ::

:: Oh, so precious, apparently JJ and Grampie feed the birds stuff that looks just like Quinoa - HA! ::

:: February 1st - How can it be! ::

:: Well, January has come and gone...I can not believe it! It is February 1st and we have a gorgeous bright crisp day to start off a usually dreary month ::

:: I have been running like a mad woman, yesterday I outdid myself, by 11 am I had been to the library, bank, post office, enrolled JJ in Kindergarten and used up some of my coupons that were set to expire at the end of the month - to say the least by the afternoon, I was shot as were my nerves ::

:: The boys got every last ounce of patience out of me and I was ready to commit myself to the crazy-house! But I did not make it to the crazy house, instead my boys went to bed ;) ::

:: Today started off better, I fit in my run before I left the house. That in itself makes the day so much better. My devotion for the day was just so fitting - it was about having days where it is tough to show love to your kids. Yesterday was one of those days. My children were acting unlovely and I was not much better! ::

:: Here is the verse from my devotions: Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love. Psalms 90:14 ::

:: Onward and upward! Here is to a new month, L O V E month! While we are on the topic of love month - I wanted to share a neat Valentines gift I made (for those special teachers & grandparents in your lives!) ::

:: The total cost of this glass planter with bulb was $4 (and $0.27 cents for tax) - I got the glass vase and candle stick from the Dollar Tree (a favorite shopping stop for me) - they were $1 each, along with the bulb from RCSS for $2 - it is the perfect little gift for Valentines day - dontcha think! ::

:: Happy Day Lovelies! ::
