My Iced Caramel Machiatto

Last night, my sweet husband brought me a new Starbucks drink. I had never thought much of iced drinks. (it always reminds me of ice in milk-YUCK!!) Anyway, he brought me an iced caramel machiatto and it is SOOOOOOO good. It was my dinner. AND, I went on the website and checked out the nutrition facts and it is more nutritious (if you use non fat milk vs. whole milk) than my normal Starbucks drink consisting of anything Frappuccino. So, I think we’re going to B and N tonight to get another again!:)
This morning we went to our local salvation army thrift store to drop off Haven’s doll house that she never plays with to free up some more room. I explained to her why we were doing it and when we got there, she had a bit of trouble letting it go. I again explained to her that we were giving it away b.c there were other kids that didn’t have as much as she did and we were sharing with them, PLUS, she never played with it anyway. About a minute went by, and she said ‘But mom, those weren’t kids, those were mans.’ (referring to the men that helped me unload my car. Usually the first thing she says when she first wakes up is ‘Where’s daddy’? Well, the other day, she woke up (in our bed) and said ‘Mommy, why is your bed so loud?’ (it sqeaks a bit when you sit up) But it has been good in the mornings lately b.c she has been cuddling with me when she first wakes up…putting her head on my shoulders and rubbing and patting my back, while I do the same to hers. It has been so fun! With all her crazy things she does, that more than makes up for it!
Enjoy the weekend and if you get a chance, try the iced caramel machiatto. YUMMY stuff!

Pickler Picked

Okay, one of my top four was voted off last night. Kellie Pickler……there was like 48 million people that voted. So sad. Check out the video on the A.I. site. It was kind of sad to watch, but she took it well.
Other than that, all is going pretty good. Still in the waiting period for the lupus results. The Lord and probably everyone close to me knows that I am not a patient person and I hate waiting, but in the waiting I know is when the Lord continues to refine me.
Random, but here is a picture of the Laney girls at the women’s conference. I am so blessed to have such wonderful sisters and mom.

Enjoy the beautiful day, and remember to keep believing Him!

A weekend of craziness


Picture is curtesy of Stephanie Laney, as is her dog, Midas. We went out to Kelley and John Mark’s new houses last night for dinner. Haven enjoyed playing with the dogs and running around the yard with Cambron.
The weekend was crazy, but good. Below is a picture of the Laney girls, courtesy also of Stephanie, at the Women’s Retreat in Branson. We all had such a fun time being crazy and laughing together. I am still processing through everything the Lord revealed this weekend, so I’ll post more later on that, but it was awesome! We also got to shop a bit while we were there. Saturday night we went on a family date to Old Navy and Wal-Mart. I was trying to find ‘The Threshing Floor’ by Juanita Bynum. I ended up not finding it at that Wal-Mart and just ordered it from on line. I am excited to get it!
It was a long weekend, but it was good and much needed rest at the women’s retreat. (although we didn’t go to bed before 11:00 both nights)
God is good!
