About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Savor!

My Word for 2010...

SAVOR

Enjoy; derive or receive pleasure from; take pleasure in...

I plan on savoring each and every (well, almost every) moment of 2010. The events that make my girls smile this big...

and even the moments that aren't always so perfect...

The silly times...

and the "go for it!" times!:)
Because, after all...

I will look for things that make me smile. Sometimes they are quite obvious... Can you guess who this is supposed to be?

I will even try and savor days that I feel like staying in bed all day...

Family times are special. Time is fleeting. Less TV and more board games!
Act silly! Your kids will love it! They will savor the moments with you...

My girls LOVED the ice storm we had last year. Loved it! We spent time as a family, Daddy did not have to go to work and we camped out in front of the fireplace to stay warm. (I hated not having a shower and electricity!) but this year if we have a similar event you know I will do my best to savor the time.

Of course, you know I will savor the food, too! I am going to try and savor more fruits and veggies, though.:)

Oh yes, Happy New Year!

Be sure to savor your quiet moments, too.:)

Cute, Cute, Cute post! I love all the photos and love your new word... Add an "i" to it and you have Savior! ~♥~

I was telling Tim on our trip how your word is savor and Kimberly's word is simple. He asked what my word was this year... I laughed and told him I had three words...
"DO NOT NAG" :) I'm not a big nagger but decided I was going to try not complaining about anything anywhere just to see how it goes this year.
Missed you!!!
Love,
Me.
