Christmas Gift Time {Giveaway}

It’s that time – time for bargain hunters to get serious about shopping for Christmas gifts. I’ve already stocked away gifts for several people.

But when MyPublisher contacted me about doing a review – I knew exactly what I wanted to use that Photo Book for . . . one of my Christmas gifts.

I was able to pull pictures from Facebook and my own personal accounts to fill the pages. You can make it super quick if you choose for it to autofill. I took a bit longer and put the pictures in the order that made sense to me.

MyPublisher doesn’t have all of the ability to customize that some of the other programs I’ve worked with have – however if you’re looking for clean, straight forward, and simple then this is the program for you. I love that it tells you if you misspell something, if your picture is too small or too low resolution. It even reminds you before you check out if any of the content in your book is still flagged.

Another awesome feature is that you can create an outside cover or a dust jacket with your own pictures on it. I like these books much better. It gives them a “cool” factor that I can’t accomplish with my scrapbooking skills.

You’ll want to take advantage of MyPublisher sales since these books aren’t cheap. The 20 page classic hardcover photo book with photo finish and standard shipping is usually a $44.94 retail value.  
But right now, you can win one on the MelissaStuff blog! *Shocker!*

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…
