Julie Andrews—The Sound of Music

Such a fun book! It’s been a favorite in our house for a couple of years now. If you have a little boy, I’m sure he’d enjoy it!

I read this book in the Summer 2005. The Lord had been stirring my heart to do something that I wasn't doing at the time. This book emphasized the importance of having patience in the preparation process before those life changes.

This movie portrays the story of boxing champ James. J. Braddock. The character, integrity, perseverance and optimism this man displayed in such bleak circumstances is inspiring!
“In all the history of the boxing game, you’ll find no human interest
story to compare with the life narrative of James J. Braddock.”
-Damon Runyon (1936)

Wasn't happy at all with the way Season 3 ended, but I'm still eager for Season 4 in January 2014~~ and I still highly recommend it! Love this show! So thankful for my nursing school buddy, Caitlin who got me hooked.

This is Brandon and my favorite special occasions restaurant. We enjoyed our belated Valentine’s dinner here on 2/23/13. We highly recommend Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing; the steaks of course; the amazing Mac ‘N Cheese and Au Gratin Potatoes; the salmon is great and those crab legs- oh my, my! Finally, the Key Lime Pie is a great conclusion to this highly enjoyable fine dining experience.

So we had challenges with the big mouthwash bottle. I got nervous everytime the kids picked it up to begin their morning and evening gargles; especially when the younger kiddos wanted to “do it myself.” We decided to get a handsoap pump to fill with our mouthwash. Add some dixie cups and let the kids exhibit their independence as they squirt their mouthwash into their cup and swish away! Go dental hygiene! Yay for no mess!
