Watch Me Fly

5 Oct

It’s the end of a long day and all Bruce and I wanted to do was curl up with a big bowl of popcorn and watch The Office on DVD.

We actually don’t have a microwave which forces us to make popcorn in the popcorn maker we got for our wedding.  I love the taste of homemade popcorn!


I heard this song this afternoon and have been listening to it on repeat ever since.  It’s definitely not a new song, but I love the underlying message about strength and endurance.  Enjoy!

Sometimes I bend
But I’ll never break
And I’m not about
To win another day

Play Work Repeat

1 Oct

Last night we went wine tasting!

Proceeds benefited the Carpenter Museum – our church neighbors!

Although, I didn’t so much taste as I did drink what was in my glass and talk and mingle all night.

I don’t think I’ll ever be a wine connoisseur.

Post wine tasting we went to Gregg’s in East Providence for some dessert with friends.  The desserts were unreal – reminded Bruce and me of the Marietta Diner

Today it’s a lot of this and a little bit of sermon writing.  Onward!

Cold Cures

29 Sep

Ack, I am so close to feeling better.  But I am at the stage of this sinus/cold/head thing where I am just exhausted and my head feels … big.  I have a meeting tonight, so I left the office around 12:30 to get some rest and work with my feet up.

As lame as it is to be under the weather, this happens to me when the weather changes – and I am excited about that!  Bring on fall, please!

In the meantime, my sinus/cold/head remedies have been as of later …

Chicken Noodle Soup with crumbled up crackers (it gives it a stew-like texture!).

Yes, that is Italian Ice.  I send Bruce a text the other day when I was at the “my throat is burning” stage and said that I wished we had Popcicles.  And yes, my sweet husband walked in the door that night with both Popcicles and Italian Ice to sooth my throat.

He’s kind of sweet.

What are your remedies for annoying ailments?  I remember one time being sick when I was young and my throat hurt and I was crying to my mom, who promptly left my room to get some “medicine” – which only made me cry harder (I hate medicine).  Turns out the “medicine” she was getting was icing on a spoon!  She said it would help my throat – and it did!  So smooth.

Delicious Finds – Food And Fashion

Happy Wear a Dress Tuesday!

I’m wearing nude pumps because according to my girl Cat, Princess Catherine has been strutting around in nude pumps lately.

And seriously – who doesn’t want to dress like a princess every now and then?

The dress is new – found at T.J. Maxx while my mom and I were out and about yesterday.  Check out their new carts!

Um, hysterical.

Also found in our travels:

I like cereal.  I like oatmeal.  I like things that are square.  So I had to try it.

Oh mannnn oh my I have been popping these things in my mouth like M&Ms all afternoon.  Ridiculously tasty and really not all that terrible for you.  My snacking habits are out of control lately – so I figure this is better than chips!

What’s your favorite healthy snack food?
