New in the New Year

 Right after Christmas, I got this book at Lifeway written by Candace Cameron Bure.  It is a very very good book on weight loss and physical and spiritual fitness.  This has been my faorite book on the subject.  I have been trying read a chapter every morning.  It is very practical and encouraging.
Tomorrow we say goodbye to the gold paint in our house.  I have enjoyed it very much for the past five years, but I am ready for a change to something more neutral.  We are painting it Latte by Sherwin Williams.  I am so excited!!!!!!

You will love latte! I had several rooms in our previous house painted in latte and it went well with everything. I always had people asking the color. Enjoy!

You are gonna love this book. I bought this right before Mother's Day last year and it really helped me more than anything else I've ever read on the subject. I've lost 80 lbs since then. it was really a life changer for me. Along with my vitamix and skinny peppermint mocha fraps from Starbucks. Ha. Good luck in the new year.

Laurie,
I had my upstairs painted latte with the darker coconut husk on the same color swatch as a couple accent walls. I just love it! So fun to hear you chose the same color!

Complicated

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 chu

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.
