My Baby is TWO

Her nickname is Velcro because she loves her Mama so…and she turned TWO last month.
That is just not right. It’s going too fast.

I did nothing to deserve the blessing of being this child’s mother.
Nothing.

But, I’m oh so grateful that God allowed me to be her mother.
Against all odds.
Against all reasoning.
But in faith.

I watch reality tv for the fashion tips

I rarely watch TV, but when I do, I must confess I go through my TIVO’d episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County (the original and best housewives in my opinion).

I recently joked on Facebook that I was watching The Real Housewives because I apparently don’t have enough reality in my life! The truth is, I like to watch the California fashions because these moms have not fallen into the sweatpants and ponytail funk that I frequently do.

On the final episode Alexis wore the most amazing dress from Tal Shayen (pictured below on right) and I am desperate to get it. I hope it comes with little black shorts to wear under it because it seems a bit short.


I see myself teaching math in this. If you saw my dream shoe, you would know how practical I am.

But seriously, not only is this dress fashionable and gorgeous, but I could even work it into our studies by letting the kids help me figure out how many more inches of fabric I need to sew on to the bottom so I could leave the house in this. I’m pretty sure you cannot sit down in this dress. But then that won’t be problem at my house because I feel like I never get to sit down as it is—I might as well look fashionable while I’m teaching!

I also want to know who does her hair and if they would be willing to fly to Florida and do mine for a week! A homeschool mom can dream, can’t she?

Pouring out Challenge: #1


This weeks challenge was to send out a handwritten letter of encouragement to someone.
Isn’t it amazing how the handwritten note can carry more weight than email, even though an email is instant?

What does that say about instant gratification?

I used to be a letter writer but was frequently disappointed because I rarely got one back.

When I send out my letters this week it will be without any expectation of getting one back. I will just love and encourage unconditionally.

Just like our heavenly Father…
