Headed There . . .

I am on the road – at a ridiculously early time for this night owl – to go meet the rest of the Team Escalade Texas teams and kick off this incredible event. My face and my body might not be showing it yet, but I am thrilled to be a part of this.

This morning we will be driving brand new Escalades from the GM plant in Arlington over to the State Fair where they will be on display during the duration of the Fair. (By the way, the Fair is one of my favorite activities ever.) We will also be participating in a news conference so you never know where you might see my smiling face or read something I said!

There are great surprises that I will be tweeting and posting about this morning LIVE from the event. If you want to follow along and know what they are, please add @melstuffblog on Twitter and look for the hashtag #TeamEscaladeTX – I’ll seriously be checking my Twitter and Facebook as much as possible so feel free to shoot me any questions or comments and I’ll do my best to respond.

The most important thing you can do for me this morning though is to head over to the Team Escalade Texas site and click to be a supporter of Team CureDuchenne – whoever has the most votes at the end of this 5 week competition will get a $150,000 donation from Cadillac. CureDuchenne is truly an underfunded charity and would greatly profit from this donation.

If you have a Smartphone and like great apps, there is another, super easy way to support Team CureDuchenne.

I just used the BestBuzz app for the first time last night to check in as a supporter myself and I loved it. Honestly could not believe how easy it was and the scanner picked right up, unlike some of those silly barcode scanners I’ve tried to use with my Android.

Please support Team CureDuchenne and share this with your friends and family and acquaintances and coworkers and anyone else you can think of. I may not be as big as the other blogs participating in Team Escalade Texas, but I’m definitely feistier!

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…

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
