My puppy is just as nervous I think. She keeps barking at every little sound she hears so, I'm convinced the rabid, man-eating zombies from I Am Legend are right outside my door waiting to pounce on poor, helpless little me. It's moments like these I like to call on my killer kick-boxing skills (thanx Deb). I am poised and ready to obliterate any fool who dares come after me and my 3 pound cotton ball of a puppy.
I have a feeling sleep will elude me tonight.

Today is my good friend Ann's birthday. Let me just say....I LOVE HER! The more I get to know this lady the more I realize how alike we are. First of all we have a passion for buttercream, so much so that we are even willing to make ourselves physically sick for the opportunity to consume it in large amounts. Buttercream is comprised of partially hydrogenated fat and about a case of highy refined white sugar....what's NOT to like?
For her birthday I decide to introduce Ganache to my darling friend. So, I skipped out on circuit class at the Y and showed up on her doorstep at 10:00 in the morning with the birthday cake from heaven, otherwise known as the Publix bakery. (Sometimes we have to make these kinds of sacrifices) Needless to say we had a fabulous time and will be paying for it the rest of the day.....HURL!
Banana, I hope you have the happiest of birthdays and the best year ever!!

It's a blog entirely devoted to "Stuff White People Like" It's scary how accurate some of it is. This is the one that I related to the best, it's about outdoor performance clothes. Has anyone else noticed a surge of North Face stuff lately on people who probably couldn't even tell you what a rock climbing harness looks like? All they know is it was very expensive so it must be cool.
As white people get older, they like to make clear boundaries between their professional and personal lives. They don’t mind talking about their personal life at work, but they hate talking about their work life when they are enjoying a weekend or vacation. But with blackberries and laptops, white people could be working anywhere, at any time. So how do you know when they are off the clock? It’s easy, check their clothes.
When white people aren’t working, they generally like to wear Outdoor Performance Clothes. The top suppliers of these garments and accessories include North Face, REI, Mountain Equipment Co-Op, Columbia Sportswear, and Patagonia.
When you see white people wearing these, it is important that you do not discuss business matters. Instead you should say things like “where did you get that fleece?” and “what’s that thing holding your keys to your shorts?” White people will be more than happy to talk to you about their sustainably produced possessions.
The main reason why white people like these clothes is that it allows them to believe that at any moment they could find themselves with a Thule rack on top of their car headed to a national park. It could be 4:00 p.m. on a Saturday when they might get a call “hey man, you know what we need to do? Kayak then camping, right now. I’m on my way to get you, there is no time to change clothes.”
Though it is unlikely that they will receive this call, White people hate the idea of missing an opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities because they weren’t wearing the right clothes.
If you plan on spending part of your weekend with a white person, it is strongly recommended that you purchase a jacket or some sort of “high performance” t-shirt, which is like a regular shirt but just a lot more expensive.

Aly (in my sweetest voice): "Honey"
Aly: "I made a mistake"
Steve: (Hesitantly) "What?"
Aly: "I crashed into your van"
unbearable silence for what seemed like an hour...
Steve: (chuckling quietly)
That was definitely NOT the reaction I expected. Although, had that been a newer vehicle I have a feeling the reaction may not have been quite the same. So, here's to our old, tore up, stinky, mini van! Steven, I love you sooooo much and I am so blessed to be your wife!!!!

I'm sure many of you have already seen this but I had to share it. It doesn't seem to matter how many times I watch it it always goes straight to my heart. I love to hear the youth cheering. After I saw this the first time I immediately went to itunes to download the song. It's "Everything" by Lifehouse for those of you who may be interested.
Interesting point....I noticed that this particular version of the video has about 4 million hits. Recently ABC's morning show had the evolution of dance guy on after his you tube video had an amazing 2 million hits.
Let me know what you think...

1 Peter 3 : 3-4 The Message
What matters is not your outer appearance--the styling of your hair, the jewelry you wear, the cut of your clothes--but your inner disposition. Cultivate inner beauty, the gentle, gracious kind that God delights in.

That is why it is so appropriate that we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord during this season. God is like the ultimate home theater experience....he gets ALL our senses involved in an experience, sight, smell, sounds, tastes and touch. It's all there reminding us of His love for us.
As we draw nearer to this renewing season try and stop to appreciate the experiences for ALL your senses around you. I'd love to hear why some of you may love this time of year.......

Kolby: "Dear God thank you for this beautiful night and please help the black people with all their problems. Amen"
I'm not sure where that came from but um....okay....Amen!
