Random Ramblings

I thought I would throw a few random things into one post just to catch up with everyone. I had not been feeling well for a few days, so I have done very little blogging. By Saturday afternoon, I felt so much better. I made a trip to Home Depot. Yuck! I wish they sold shoes, then I might actually enjoy it. I had to go pick out my new kitchen faucet (ours was broken since December). It's so nice to have it fixed, I don't even mind doing the dishes now that I don't have to fight to get the water off!

Yesterday, I started attending a new class at church focusing on "Three Simple Rules: A Wesleyan Way of Living". It was interesting and it felt good to be involved in a class to improve our way of living. Of course, the man that sat across from me kept falling asleep and his arm kept sliding off the table. At one point, he bumped his glasses and they fell off the table and it woke him up. I was so afraid that he would fall off his chair and I would laugh out loud. Not very Christian-like, I know, but it was funny!

After church, I was just walking out the door and an older man in the congregation stopped me. He said, "you made my day today!" I looked at him kind of surprised. After all, although I know him and have since I was a child, I had no interaction with him that day. So I said to him, " how did I do that?" His response, " I looked over at you during the service, your daughter was sitting on your lap, you reached down and stroked her hair and kissed her on the head. It made my day, your a wonderful Mama!" Awww, it brought a tear to my eye and a smile to my face all at the same time. It made me feel all happy!

I did a little clothes shopping with my mom. So much stuff is marked down, and living in PA, I know that we will still be wearing winter clothes for awhile. Now is a great time to buy. While we were shopping, Mike called to tell me he was at another mall. When I got home I was surprised with our new TV! You may remember that Brandon broke the other one a few months ago. Boo Brandon, we will never let him live that one down;0)

Also this weekend, I received some yummy smelling Bath and Body Works stuff from Mesa's giveaway.

Felicia and Madelyn received this adorable tooth pillow from Tara and the beautiful Chloe from the Kidz giveaway! Felicia was so excited that she keeps asking when her teeth are going to fall out:0)

I also received this fabulous card from Queenie Jeannie! She has got some great stamping skills ! I love it Jeannie! Thank you:0)

My dear friend Vickie gave me award too! Thanks Vickie! You're the best:0)

Well, I think that is about all for now! How was your weekend?

  6. that was so sweet , it just proves our actins speak louder then words.

  7. Hey, why DOESN'T Home Depot sell shoes? They would benefit from a few pair of summer flip flops and some Crocs in the garden dept. I love B&B Works, have you tried Dancing Waters and the Cotton Blossom? What great gifts, dontcha love good mail? That was a heart-warming comment, I feel all warm and fuzzy. Just a normal kiss that we do all the time and it makes someones day!!

  8. Oh, I love Home Depot. I only wish I had more money to spend there! So, were you going to write down the things your class suggested to improve your life? I think that might be interesting to know. And you ARE a good Mom. I'm so glad you can enjoy this time with your kids when they are young.

    You are smart to do your shopping now. I always think to do it but never do!

  9. Felicia is such a little doll...and might I say looks a lot like you, Sandy. The picture of her and her tooth pillow made me smile. Hooray for Tara and all her good works!


    PS: I am a Welcomista now. However, something is missing. Perhaps I need to change my profile pic so that I can be a bit more of a Fashionista, like you! I love your photo! :)

  10. That was a lot!!!

    That was super sweet of that man to say to you. That'd make any mommas day! :) And you are an awesome one!

    I too went shopping this weekend and bought some clearance winter clothes. (I also went down in a size in jeans.)

    Congrats on your awards and presents.

  15. That tooth pillow is cute! And that really sounds like a sweet moment at the church.

  16. Good news that you are feeling better. That tooth pillow is cute!

    That is a nice old man. What a nice thing for him to say.

    I would have been laughing at the guy falling off his chair too.

    My older kids were sick with strep infection. But they are better now that I pumped them with antibiotics.

    Your welcome, Sandy:)
