Last night I was invited to a grand opening blogger party at T-Hee Greetings. Oh my word! Did I have fun . . . and I found a million things I would totally use in my home and for my family.

I’m not much of a decorator – I don’t dress my home for every small holiday and I don’t have the coolest knick-knacks or latest trends unless someone gives me one to review for my blog. But this store had a million things that I was in love with!



For example these adorable cups. I have had one of these that frustrated me because it wouldn’t stay water tight. I have to have something that can be washed in the dishwasher and still remain durable!


But these were by far my favorite! made out of the same durable plastic and with a pressure sealed lid and straw – I would never have to worry about spills. And the straw has a lip on the bottom so your child can’t just come along and steal the straw out . . . I know some of you mommies know exactly what I’m talking about. image

And these bibs? Oh my word, incredibly soft and absolutely adorable. I don’t have a baby who wears bibs anymore and I have never had a girl . . . and I still almost bought one!

They have every seasonal item and college themed item you could imagine. If you have a hard to buy for person on your Christmas gifts list, this is a store you should check out.


This store has two locations in the DFW area – Lake Highlands (Abrams/Mockingbird) and North Dallas (Walnut Hill/Audelia). But if you’re not local, you can still take advantage of the great items offered by this store online at and Party, Chick and Paper. (A little birdie told me there are great deals to be had at these websites too, so I’ll be checking that out and getting back to you on it!)

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…
