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!

Be Sure...

My To Do list is getting longer.
My lips are in a sad state.
Vaseline is my new buddy.
Who knew it was for your lips?

My hands are pitiful.
They NEVER were dry when I was um, younger.
This stuff is the best.
It really does heal.
While you are rushing around be sure to baby yourself when you can.
If you like to craft, sneak in some time for that... here and there.
I had a date with this guy between 1 and 4 AM.

Spend time with the ones you love the most.
It matters.

Please don't forget the true meaning of the Christmas season.
I tend to lose sight so easily as I rush through my tasks.
I don't want to let anyone down.
I certainly should not let the Lord down, either.
He is my constant companion and light of my life.
I pray that He is yours, too.

Love you,

Hi Lori
Your wreath is looking great. I admire your determination to stay awake and get it finished.
This post is so true. We really should all make time to remember the true meaning of Christmas at this hectic time. Christmas Eve will be special for us this year. We are going to a Christingle Service. Do you have those?

Lori, I love that picture of you with Katie!!! I love that Aveda Hand Relief, it does work!

Yes, we must truly remember the reason for the season. What a special gift!

Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

So true. I'm trying so hard to be not rushed and crazy....some days are better than others. I know it's bad when the kids start singing the Grinch song to me.
Loving the wreath. Only time I sleep is between 1 and 4! LOL!

Great post Lori! And girl get some sleep! You'll be better in the long run! for you and your family! I think there is some kind of tea you can drink that helps. I think I've seen it at the grocery store and it's called SleepyTime tea? The wreath is very pretty. Take care, and I'll check in a few days. XO Love,Fran.
