Gift Review: A Few of our Favorite Things

This lip gloss is from Bath and Body Works and I LOVE it!!!!  It taste just like Doublemint gum.  It is super sweet and has a tingle to it!
American Girl's Bitty Baby for Sarah Kate.  She LOVES her and calls her by her name "Bitty Baby."  Emily loves her new Caroline doll, but has stressed because her hair has gotten messed up.  Good thing she came with a bonnet.

This works well, but the parent has to do it all and it is some trouble.  Tastes really good, though

.One of my favorite gifts:  a Bible cover

I love that bible cover! I have been looking for one. What brand or store is that from?
Becky said…
My grand daughters love Bitty Baby too. We live near Chicago so some of our favorite memories are them saving enough money to go to American Girl.

I saw something on pinterest about using liquid fabric softener and water to make a doll's hair "like new", might be worth a try. My niece loved her bitty baby too. I love your Bible cover, so pretty!

A teaspoon of Downey and water in a small spray bottle and a wire brush will make Caroline's hair look like new

My boys got that same Slurpee machine for Christmas. After using it one time, I decided it would be easier to drive to the closest Seven 11 which is about two hours away. ;-)

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
