Blessed to Be a Blessing

Need some good news today? With the help of my amazing team, I was able to just call and pay the power bill of single mother who has been out of electricity for over a week. We came together and raised the money she needed in just a few hours. Now when she gets home from work she and her three kids will have LIGHTS! This is what it’s all about! I am in shock daily at the situations God is putting me in through this business. It’s about so much more than making money… it’s about hope and rescue!

Happiness Is…Date Night, Friday Night Lights and Good Music

Right now happiness is…

Friday Night Lights: BEST. SHOW. EVER. I am kind of in love with so many of the characters. Tim Riggins for being my equivalent to Sawyer from Lost. Matt Saracen for singing Mr. Sandman to his grandma. Tami Taylor for her hair…her glorious hair. Lyla Garrity for just being so darn pretty. Coach Taylor for his…everything. And the MUSIC, don’t even get me started on the MUSIC!

Date Nights: I mentioned our date night in this post, but I can’t reiterate enough how much getting out for dinner and a movie every once in a while is a necessity when you have two small children. As we walked into the movie theater I said, “I feel like we’re in college again!” Geez, it’s been a while!

“Girl from the North Country,” Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash: I mentioned that we loved Silver Linings Playbook in my last post, and this is one of the best songs from the sountrack. I have the original Bob Dylan record with “Girl from North Country” so hearing this brought me back to my 9th grade bedroom, listening to that scratchy voice on my Fisher-Price record player for the very first time. You just can’t recreate that feeling, and hearing it in the movie came pretty close. This version with Johnny Cash is legendary. I found another version with Joe Cocker on Spotify and loved it, too.

“I’ll Tumble 4 Ya:” My sis sent this song to me through Facebook today and, I mean…I just can’t get enough. How can you not love some good Boy George? And that title? What does it mean to “tumble” for one? I’m guessing it’s quite the term of endearment. I’m wondering why Tumblr hasn’t stolen it for their official motto?! This video is just pure amazing-ness. I dare you to watch it without smiling.

Feeling Good! It feels good to be back into blogging. It feels good to be eating better and working toward feeling better physically and mentally. Hail to Operation Feel Good 2013!


Happiness Is…Fall Edition 4

Happiness is…

big sister reading to little sister. 

She’s making up a story about Granny and Pops and a little boy crying (who happens to be Charlie Brown)…and it.is.awesome.This is the same book that actually started this “Happiness Is…” series and it’s one of her favorites.

Hattie is clearly unimpressed 🙂

Happiness is…

the arrival of fall. 

AKA: Boot weather

I have a slight obsession with boots. Especially Frye boots. Beautiful, beautiful leather.

Fall is also famous for…

Football season

Go Hokies!

Fall Fashions

We love denim vests. And boots. Lots and lots of boots.

Baseball Playoffs

AJH loves the Michael Morse Bobble Head doll. She calls him “the little boy.” Congrats on the Nats making it to the playoffs!

First Day of School

Somebody is LOVING pre-school.

Finally,

Happiness is…

a smiling baby.

 

Especially after six weeks of crying!
