{Boy} Friends {100 Days}

Delia has a boyyyyyyfrieeeennnnnd. (you just have to singsong it). She came home yesterday with the news. “Sawyer said that I was his girlfriend and that he was my boyfriend”. At least she knows how to pick them. He is a cutie. He sits next to her in class (and I have actually taught him Sunday school, I believe). I am grateful for the friendships the kids are forming at school. Everybody needs friends.

I LOVE that first photo. Kate makes that same face when she tells me someone said they are her boyfriend. Look at your beautiful light. P.S. Kate has that dress! So cute!

New Vacuum {100 Days}

{Day ?} I forget already.

I am grateful for that 5 minute high that I got while vacuuming today with the new vacuum cleaner. You know that “I can’t wait to clean with my new cleaning tool” high? Yep, five minutes. Enough to finish part of a room. I guess the high isn’t quite as potent when you are replacing something you already have….I’m pretty excited about the super long cord though. It’s the little things.

It’s the small things. Cool perspective :)

Bandaids {100 Days}

I am thankful that it wasn’t as bad as it sounded! To have heard Ben’s screams, you would have thought his leg were amputated. He wrecked his bike. It did hurt. I know it hurt, poor buddy, but now everyone from here to Kroger knows too. I still love how magical a bandaid can be. Ben said if it still hurt on Friday, he would need to sit out on P.E. haha. P.E. is his favorite connection, so I’m pretty sure he’ll eat his own words come Friday. I love him in spite of his drama.:)

Health {100 Days}

{Day 7}

This morning was a little crisp. Fall is in the air…for the moment. It was a perfect day for a run (if you could call it that). I’m thankful for my good health and the health of my 3 babies. We have been very fortunate to have very few sick visits, and during the times of which we worried about seizures or hernias (Bray), small fontanels (Delia), or speech therapy (Ben), etc….everything has turned out perfectly. I had my running playlist in the phone from a couple of years ago and a song came on. I was supposed to be using my time outdoors to think, but instead I found myself really listening to the words (of a rap song, ha!). I really like the message of this song…”The Show Goes On” by Lupe Fiasco…..don’t judge….I do love me some Hip Hop. Probably not written for a thirty something white momma of three from the suburbs, but hey.

Here are the lyrics of the first verse that really resonated with me, verse two, um, not so much…and verse three:)good song though. And the next song was “Shake your Money Maker” by Ludacris haha! Not sure what the universe is trying to tell me.

*And that’s Advocare Grape Spark in the shaker cup. Yum! Just don’t drink it after brushing your teeth. Click here if you are interested in trying it before a workout. Dana can hook you up!

14 Run-1_webAlright, already the show goes on
all night, till the morning we dream so long
anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
just remember when you come up
the show goes on!

Have you ever had the feeling that you was being had
Don’t that @#$% that make you mad
They treat you like a slave, with chains all on your soul,
and put whips up on your back,
they be lying through they teeth
hope you slip up off your path
I don’t switch up I just laugh
put my kicks up on they desk
unaffected by they threats than get busy on they ass
see that’s how that Chi-Town made me
That’s how my daddy raised me
that glittering may not be gold, don’t let no body play me
if you are my homeboy, you never have to pay me
Go on and put your hands up, when times are hard you stand up
L-U-P the man, cause a brand that the fans trust
so even if they ban us they’ll never slow my plans up!

Alright, already the show goes on
all night, till the morning we dream so long
anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
just remember when you come up
the show goes on!

–skip verse 2—

So no matter what you been through
no matter what you into
no matter what you see when you look outside your window
brown grass or green grass
picket fence or barbed wire
Never ever put them down
you just lift your arms higher
raise em till’ your arms tired
Let em’ know you’re there
That you struggling and survivin’ that you gonna persevere
Yeah, ain’t no body leavin, no body goin’ home
even if they turn the lights out the show is goin’ on!

Dr Pepper {100 Days)

{Day 6}

Well, if you have no idea how grateful I am to Mr. Charles Alderdon, I guess you just don’t know me. I am grateful for each and every one of the 23 fruit flavors that he concocted into what today is called Dr Pepper. A little history lesson for you. He created this most tasty drink in 1885 (that’s on the can) in a corner drug store in Waco, Texas. He was inspired by the smells of the store he worked in and made a drink that tasted like the smell. So, there ya have it. I think working in a place that smells of Dr P must be like a little slice of heaven.
