Don’t Forget: Rhea Lana’s

018 resized

Don’t forget to run over to Rhea Lana’s in Frisco today or tomorrow – they have a ton of My Vintage Baby clothing and boutique clothing for around $10 each piece. I shopped yesterday and was pleasantly surprised at the amount of stuff available, even the items that seem to be in short supply at many consignment sales.

There were large sizes in both girls and boys – even a couple of rounders full of size 5 for boys and size 4 for girls. They had clothes all the way up to junior sizes.

Lots and lots of strollers, high chairs, swings, bouncy seats, wagons, bicycles, blow up water toys. I mean I could seriously go on and on. There is a TON of stuff over there and the prices are very reasonable. AND because there are so many clothes on the racks, if you are willing to do some hunting, there are really good bargains to be found too. I found a like new University of Texas jersey for $3. And a like new pair of gray Wilson baseball pants for $3. The jersey retails for $41.95 (I can’t believe anyone would pay that, by the way) and the pants retail for $15 – $22.

I made my boys happy by purchasing a Gamecube complete with two chargers and three games, all for just $15! We already have a Gamecube, but not those games, so I will likely resell the actual system and make my money back on this purchase.

Let me know if you made it by and what you found . . . consignment sales get me so excited. Ha!

MD Anderson Arrival - Waiting to See Doctor

Joey and I drove to Houston yesterday . . . after making sure our kids and animals were all taken care of, which is always a bigger deal than I anticipate it being. It's been a long time since Joey and I have had the chance to "get away" just the two of us, so even with the reason for the trip, it was nice to drive and chat and stop at Collin Street Bakery and Cooper Farms store and eat at Cracker Barrel as if we were on a vacation.

If you've ever taken an anti-anxiety medication, you know the strange feeling of knowing academically that the facts should be upsetting to you, but feeling inexplicably calm in the face of those still upsetting facts. It isn't truly inexplicable, though, as you took a medication that is formulated to do that very thing. However, recently I have found myself experiencing this very same feeling without any medication, and I am confident that it is the definition of "peace that passes understanding."

I will say waking up in a …

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…
