i haven't heard this song before. it's brad paisley and sara evans- i love them both and what a song to work together on. i'll warn ya- i cried like a baby watching this with adam by my side saying "it's ok."
and it is better than ok...we are all so blessed to live so free.

"Twilight Convention Coming to Texas
Copyright 2008 Summit Entertainment
Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series is branching out from its Comi-Con booth and getting a convention of its own, TwiCon!
The big state of Texas is hosting the largest United States conference inspired by the wildly popular vampire series Twilight.
From July 30-August 2, Twilight aficionados will storm the Sheraton Dallas Hotel for series inspired music and fun!
Tickets go on sale for TwiCon on May 1. Click HERE to see ET's latest 'New Moon' exclusive. "
if i wasn't a mom of three and devoted wife...i'd take off to dallas for a 4 day weekend for twicon! i guess here's is where my line is drawn...well, partly because rob pattinson isn't on the schedule of cast to appear. i bet he shows up anyway though :)
and here's a new moon movie update:
ET New Moon 3
Uploaded by officialspunkransom
*sigh* so super excited! i think i'm going to read new moon again.
On my bedside table: now i'm reading 19 minutes by jodi picoult. really good book, tough subject matter. well written though. i'm about 1/2 way into it.
On my TV: yesterday we watched "the day the earth stood still" with keanu reeves. good movie- different! the ending was slightly disappointing.
On the menu for tonight: enchiladas, rice & beans. yummy!
On my To Do List: surprise-laundry! and working on my bedroom today...it's always last on my list.
New Recipe I tried last week: don't think i tried anything new.
Looking forward to: a week with nothing major going on, a park lunch date with adam, and getting caught up on things here.
Homemaking Tip for this week: i'm trying something new with laundry- wash everything on one day, then the next put it all away. that way i'm not running around doing both all day, maybe?
i'll let ya know how that goes.
Favorite Photo of the week: i couldn't pic one :) i'm so getting prints of these! i can't believe they are 4, 6, & 8!
Favorite Blog Post of the week: "he always knows best" post by sandra at diary of a sahm. moms know a lot, but He knows the greater plan...
Lesson learned the past few days: we all need a day of rest- i took an awesome nap with the kids yesterday!
On my Prayer List: my good friend's mom is having surgery today, prayers of encouragement for myself- that i'd be the best mom/wife i can be and not let little things get in the way, for Sarah B Smith as she and her family make some big choices.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: 1 John 3 1
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

mid morning park play times before it gets too hot and the houston children's museum are on my list to do as well. poor julie has to remember my first and only trip to the children's museum! what a crazy day!!! but the kids are older now, so praying that there will be a much better trip in store for us. oh, and we have never done any of the fun stuff at the crosby community center. this might be the year to start!
i'm sure a trip to SA will be in the works sometime during the time out of school and to the beach too, but i have to come up with some back yard fun stuff too. bubble and sidewalk chalk are a must. afternoons running in the sprinkler-anyone else do that when they were little? we sure did!

we are headed out to dinner somewhere tonight- i have no clue! there's nothing i could want more. my bracelet was enough, but then he bought me a "new" to me mini van last week. it was an upgrade, drives great and we paid cash. i have no need for a newer car- means bigger payment, lol. he reminds me of his late grandpa that way :)
well, i'm off to go order cayley's bday cake, stop by the kindergarten, then home to straighten up and get ready for this evening. i'm so taking my camera.
this is by far not a run of the mill wednesday...

tonight- not much. have to go grocery shopping. we try and go once every 2 weeks, so i have to finish up my list and menu today!
my goodness! i have no idea. umm, chicken something maybe in the slow cooker. like i said- i have to go grocery shopping. i get real creative on days like these.
lists, laundry, keeping the kids busy today. maybe i'll take them to mcdonald's for an ice cream later.
tomorrow i have to finish tim's anniverary surprise! can't do it while the kids are home today.
lots of things this week- fun things! our 9th anniversary is on wednesday, twilight movie night on friday, and cayley's family birthday party on sunday- and my brother bobby and his family are coming too!
can't think of anything to share off the top of my head this morning...that tired.
Favorite photo from last week:
cayley and i preparing the turkey for eater lunch! tim makes an awesme deep fried turkey and it' snow requested for family holiday get togethers :)
sometimes your children need a warden. that's me with adam now that he has learned to open windows and run outside without me.
prayers of continued years of blessings in our marriage, that angels keep on surrounding my children and keeping them safe, for my friends faceing big decisions and unknown struggles.
