“This was a magical morning. We all got up at 3.00 am or something, and went out and we prepared in the dark. And then waited for the first
If you’ve never been a country music or Tim McGraw fans, that’s all probably about to change! Tim started this song dedicating it to his wife and daughters. But when this sweet girl with Down Syndrome got up on stage, everything changed. This show was in Atlanta on July 13, 2014. Be prepared to completely melt, especially for the surprise at the end!
Crack Potatoes......great for making ahead of time the night before then throwing in the morning for a great breakfast. We have this at almost all of our breakfast potlucks and it's always the first to be dug into!!
The first time I saw Everlasting Revolution hydrangea, I knew I was looking at something special. It was a couple of years ago and I’ve patiently waited for this plant to make it to garden centers. Happily, in 2013, the wait is over! Want a sneak peek of something you’ll just have to have this [...]
People I love
Those people don't know any better. (Unless it's X-Men: First Class. Then we all just waited for nothing. They could have at least Rick Roll'd us or something.)
Baked oatmeal. This is a "make ahead" recipe. Mix it up the night before and then pop it in the oven in the morning. It was not dry at all, like the last recipe I tried. Yummy!
Everything Hurts and I'm Dying. The best and funniest workout shirt or tank of all time. Something we have all thought when we first start running or working out again. Weather you are a casual 5k runner or running a marathon for the first time, this is the perfect shirt to get a laugh. #funnyfitness
Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas. I visited the Bahamas in November, 2009. We went there for a week and every day it was hot out. The bahamas is made up of many islands and this is the one I went to.
Places to go and things to do
Growing up in Trinidad all food served at weddings and prays were served on banana leafs. It was exciting to tag along with the men as they went to the woods to gather the leaves, washing them and stacking them up getting prepared for the crowds that would come. It was exciting times!!
Something like this in white instead of heels for a beach wedding and then you can put heels on for when youre inside or out of the sand at least. Sooo doing this.
A Girl Can Dream
Beeing Good...I can see using this every day and putting the names in the basket then pull one out at the end of the day for a special treat or something.
the sg concert last night was amazing! and we waited out in the cold for her and she came out and took pictures (:
Whenever we ask a child to do something and he or she responds with "I'd love to!" then a pom pom goes in the jar. When it's full, we go out for frozen yogurt. We don't do it ALL the time, but it's an investment in a habit that has resulted in sweet responses (even without the yogurt). -April
Lumpiang Shanghi. This is all I ate when I was in the Philpppines at every meal, and in every restaurant we went to. LOVE!

At Shiloh lots were cast for the various tribal areas. This was a sacred act, revealing how God would choose to parcel out the land within the tribes. "So the men went and passed up and down in the land and wrote in a book a description of it by towns in seven divisions. "Then they came to Joshua to the camp at Shiloh, & Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the Lord. And there Joshua apportioned the land to the people of Israel, to each
And kid, you’ve got to love yourself. You’ve got wake up at four in the morning, brew black coffee, and stare at the birds drowning in the darkness of the dawn. You’ve got to sit next to the man at the train station who’s reading your favorite book and start a conversation. You’ve got to come home after a bad day and burn your skin from a shower. Then you’ve got to wash all your sheets until they smell of lemon detergent you bought for four dollars at the local grocery...
My mom passed away two and a half years ago. She used to send my brother and I cards whenever she went away on business trips and she’d sign every one the same way. I got this at Curious Tattoo in College Park, Maryland. Ryan did an amazing job reproducing my mom’s handwriting. I could not be happier with the way this turned out and I am excited to have a piece of her with me at all times.
"I was always fully prepared to be a struggling actor for a while and play a cop or a pizza boy, but the fact that all this has happened at a very young age is just really extraordinary".
funnywildlife:by schpakowski Rufous-Hummingbird I was sitting at the picnic table in the yard this past weekend with my daughter and we spotted a hummingbird hovering for a few moments… It was her first sighting of one, which made it a small magical moment. ~Charlotte (PixieWinksFairyWhispers)
RIP. She was raped and beat up by 6 different men all at once. She fell in and out of comas after the incident. she died on Dec. 28, 2012 in #India. She was said to just be crying nonstop....her only fault? She was a woman and accidentally got on the wrong bus. This horrifies and disgusts me.
We selected out favorite E.E. Cummings poem and I used raw and unstretched canvas that I first primed with white house paint (I often use this in place of gesso). I let it dry and then went to town writing out the poem- and believe or not I used black shoe polish to write with
home is wherever i'm with you
Road Trip Snack Boxes for Kids - I made these for this summer's trip and it was a huge hit. I found the boxes in the craft section at Wal-Mart and included a variety of salty and sweet treats. Then on each leg of our trip (divided up into 1-2 hour increments), they could choose one or two things to eat. Very convenient on us as parents and the kids love it, too. -- I am so doing this this summer!
Have to share!! I have been sick for a few days…not full blown of course, b/c of the oils. But my post nasal drip was killing me! I coughed all day and night for 2 days. I did the sinus steamer yesterday and it's GONE. It stopped my coughing immediately, at least for a few hours. The cough came back, I did the steam one more time and went to bed. Woke up this morning with hardly any PND and I've coughed maybe once or twice. Amazing!
This cherry blossom painting was very easy art to create. Done with acrylic. Simply painted the background, randomly placed branches, then loaded up a round brush with paint and dapped it in groupings of five to make flower shapes. Then went back to each flower and added a dark dot in the center. Even if you're not a painter, it's worth a try.
Love 100 cupboards. We found this book on accident, we were looking for something at the library to listen to on a road trip. We ended up loving it! First in a trilogy.
Good To Know
Rose And Black Panther Tattoo - or perhaps I could do the totems on my upper arms like this rather than the gypsy head I was thinking of? This might be solid and dark enough to cover what I've already got. Then that would free up my right shoulder blade for a fantastic pheonix/peacock!
Black Satin We blame Lindsay Lohan for this one. Back in 2006, when LiLo was at the height of her popularity and hadn't started her tailspin into drug addiction and legal woes, she was spotted with this glossy obsidian hue on her tips, causing all hell to break loose. The shade sold out in mere hours at some stores, while there was a booming black market eBay trade, with some bottles fetching prices of $100 or more. Thankfully, Chanel introduced it again.
This is the man who bought this lion as a cub in the 60’s and then when it got too big he let it into the wild. 10 years later it was the alpha male in a nature reserve in Africa and it was really violent. The guy went to see it and it walked up to him and gave him a hug. Aw :3
"My favorite moment was when we were just about to do one of the great big [finale] scenes. Tom Felton was sort of psyching himself up for his big moment. I said to him, 'Are you all right?' He said, 'Oh, yeah. I’ve waited for this moment my whole life.' And I looked at him and realized he wasn’t f***ing about. My God, he’s been playing this part since he was a little boy, and now he’s a young man. Of course he’s been waiting for it his entire
