30-Day EC: Spotlight on Deborah

Day 22 of The 30-Day Exercise Challenge brings Deborah to the forefront! A few days ago, I brought you an inspiring update from Estefanie from Arizona, and before that, Toni from Auckland, New Zealand. These girls bless my heart!  If you’re not a part of this group, now is the time. The new challenge begins on September 15…plenty of time to get prayed up before Jillian takes ahold of you. Bless her heart. Bless my heart. Bless all the hearts. AinW: Hi! Deborah! […]

30-Day EC: Spotlight on Toni

I am BEYOND excited to introduce y’all to Toni, one of the over 800 precious women who have joined me in The 30-Day Exercise Challenge. Toni’s from New Zealand, y’all! I have a friend in New Zealand! That sounds so exotic from here in North Texas (read: I’m a dork.). We call her John the Baptist. She’s our forerunner. Because of the time difference from New Zealand to North America, where the majority of us are, she works out half a day ahead […]

Colorful, Insulated Cups

At our house, we’re loving these: Awhile back, Starbuck’s came out with some great, insulated cups with a permanent straw. I saw one. I wanted it. I lusted after it because I’m a water addict. I’m drinking water constantly, and bottled water gets expensive after awhile.  I’m what you’d call a heavy drinker, and I need solutions, people! When I went to the Starbuck’s (that was back in the day, when I actually had access to a Starbuck’s…oh, for a […]

Not a Great Value

Wal-Mart and I are in a relationship. He (I’ve decided Wal-Mart’s a “he” because I’m decidedly heterosexual and it would be awkward otherwise) provides me with a plethora of bath products, Tylenol, bubble vests, and, on occasion, new tires for Lucy. Oh, and he never runs out of Peanut M&M’s. And all for a low, low price. He’s the perfect man, really. My love for his Great Value products is well-documented. However, I did want to take a moment to […]

The Good Stuff

There are a few things I prefer these days. I was thinking you’d want to be apprised of the situation. Thing 1: These little jewels taste just like plain M&M’s, but with a hint of coconut.  And they remind me of the beach. It might be the coconut tree on the front of the package. Here’s the thing: my household family members and I were biologically formulated for life in a warm climate, but currently live in a place where […]

The Perfect Cuban

One of my favorite things on this earth is a Cuban, but I’m very picky about my Cubans.  The perfect Cuban has nothing to do with cigars. And, although we love Lucy, own DVD copies of the show, and watch them regularly, this is not the perfect Cuban, either. The ultimate, perfect Cuban looks something a little more like this. Crusty bread, roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, creamy mustard, and pickle all pressed together into hot, melty, Latin goodness. Prior […]

Something I Love. It’s Colossal.

No, really. It’s Colossal. About every 15th harvest or so, I buy new mascara. I don’t know why I don’t do it more often. It’s not that expensive, really. Somewhere, in the deepest, darkest recesses of my childhood, I guess I picked up a use-it-until-it’s-gone mentality. This applies not only to my make-up, but also to a myriad of other things in my life. If I buy something that doesn’t quite make the cut, I’ll use it up rather than throwing […]

Mom Hack: Camelbak Bottles

This…this is the water bottle that saved my sanity. Okay, maybe that was a little dramatic, but not by much. About a month or so ago now, I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Large Families on Purpose by Erika Shupe. While we don’t have a large family by most standards and certainly not as large as Erika’s, her organizational tips and tools are right up my OCD alley. She lives with her husband and their nine children in an […]

And sweat. Probably mostly sweat. Here are a few helpful pieces of information: […]
