"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up."

Deuteronomy 6:5-7

I Love My...

Just arrived yesterday at my doorstep was the Thirty-One bag I ordered for our cruise next week. And I LOVE IT!

I ordered it in Onyx Medallion with a "J" embroidered on it in silver.
I'm going to stuff it with the book I'll be reading, my ipod, my identification, suntan lotion and lipgloss. All the essentials for a cruise :)
It will be great even when we return because the crossbody style will work well when I do grocery shopping and need my hands free.  This bag would work well for college students as well who spend a lot of time walking across campus.
If you would like one, head over to my website.

what's so fun about the beach anyways?

I'm always amazed when we head south, how much fun one can have in a day at the beach.  How is it children are completely occupied, entertained and content for an entire day?  Well there is...

To the dismay of their not-so-brave Mother, the boys fearlessly caught a jellyfish in their bucket. They affectionately named him "whitey" and wanted to bring him home as a pet.  But ended up setting him free to be with his friends in the ocean, even though Dad said they should have just let him die.  Their compassionate hearts couldn't stand the thought of the poor jellyfish being without his friends!

What's more fun then wrestling with Dad,  anywhere? Enough said.

Napping In A Towel

Of course this only works when you're one year old.

I can not fully convey to you my excitement about my new project!  A sweet friend of mine introduced me to a company called Thirty-One.
After much prayer and debate (mostly about the quantity of my available free-time) I decided to become a consultant for the company.
My first step was to sign-up and order an enrollment kit. Easy. The next step, plan parties. Who doesn't like a Ladies Night? Easy.  Now my job is to seamlessly intertwine both my duties at home and invest time in a job I love. Needs more work.
One of the things I love about this company, and there are so many. Is the big, hot pink box they send you when you receive an order from them. And I do mean HOT PINK.  Even my seven year old boy was excited to see what was inside.  
The boys call it my "beauty stuff" 
Well, I won't keep the excitement to myself. Here are a couple of items I found in my hot pink box.
