LOCAL: $15 for 12 Valentine's Cupcakes from RedRaspberry

Seriously, I feel like I have to begin every post with an apology. I am not a computer expert and this migration thing has been a challenge. I'm still hacking away so soon hopefully it will be back to normal.

There is an awesome deal of mine over at Plum District today -


Now if you don't care about the quality of your cupcakes, you can probably beat this price on the clearance rack at the local grocery store. But they likely won't be decorated in Valentine's colors. It's possible they'll be stale or at least a bit dried out (that's why they made it to the clearance rack!) And generally they just don't taste very good.

The deal is good through 2/18 so if you don't need cupcakes for Valentine's, but have to bring snack for the team or have a birthday to celebrate this is the way to do it!

This company - RedRaspberry Cakes - is actually a company run by someone I know. A friend of a friend who I see from time to time. But thanks to the craziness that is Facebook, I have been able to watch her business grow and see all of the floods of comments about how good her baking is.

AND I love the fact that you can buy as many as you want so you can get enough for the entire classroom and if you still need them for the t-ball team or the GirlScout troop, you can do that too.

You won't be sorry. I promise.

If you are already a Plum District customer, you can use this link to make your purchase and help support MelissaStuff which clearly needs it at the moment. 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…
