Christmas in Cowtown!

Oh my word, with all of the excitement this week, I totally forgot to tell you about something coming up this week that I am thrilled about participating in . . .

My husband and I have hired a babysitter so we can go together next Thursday night during the first full day of the market.

When I first asked my hubby about going, he jumped at the opportunity and told me he couldn’t wait. Then this weekend as we got prepared for our week and started discussing the details, he stopped and looked at me funny. He wanted to know why there was a Christmas event in October before the temperature has dropped below 90 and a good three weeks before Halloween?!?!

While I get that makes common sense in his male brain, I had to laugh. I quickly explained that the event sells not only Christmas gifts but also decorations, clothing and holiday food mixes. If they waited until the typical “holiday season” to hold this event, the time to use them would be seriously diminished.

This way, we will have plenty of time to shop, buy, and use the items we get at this event for as long as possible!

There are 130 incredible stores at this event that sell everything from soup, dip, muffin and cheeseball mixes, faith-based home decor and gifts including scripture plates, frames and plaques, to handpainted signs,ceiling tile tin,chalkboards, memory tins, and crosses.

This event is sponsored by the Junior League of Fort Worth which is committed to their motto, “Women making better communities.”

I’ll be sharing the best deals I can find when we go next week, but I would recommend you make plans to attend yourself if at all possible.

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 …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

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…
