Tips for My Single Friend on Eharmony

My good friend, Lina, announced on her blog today (Living with Power-Biblical Truth for Everyday Life) that in a moment of Valentines day weakness, she joined eHarmony.  She has three weeks to find the love of her life.  In an effort to be the greatest friend that I can be, I thought I would provide her with a list of 15 things that she should add or remove from her eHarmony posting to increase her pool of suitors (she loves lists).  Suitors-I've been watching too much Downton Abby.


Although these are pretty particular to my home girl,  other singles might benefit from some of these tips, too ;)

Lina:
  1. Keep that you like watching football.  Remove that you're a Green Bay packer fan.
  2. Remove the word "gal" from anything describing yourself (e.g.  "I'm a Midwestern gal with a flair for ….")
  3. Remove the word "cuddle"  (oh wait, I forgot how much you are not a hug hugger).
  4. Remove the word "cosmopolitan".  It sounds like you like to drink rather than that you embrace multicultural demographics.
  5. Add that you love the movie Nacho Libre. 
  6. Keep that you can speak 5 languages.  Remove that one of those languages is the language of "love".
  7. Remove the line, "I prescribe narcotics and I'm not afraid to use them!"
  8. Remove that you took a Downton Abbey character quiz and that you were Lord Grantham.  It sounds weird.
  9. Remove that your favorite sushi roll is called  "Dirty Old Man" unless that's the kind of man you want to marry  (then maybe you should keep it).
  10. Remove that you are super sensitive to smells.  Guys smell.
  11. Remove that your favorite song is "I can't dance, I can't sing" by Genesis (or any song by Genesis for that matter).
  12. Add that you are working out using "plyometrics".  It sounds cool and it's true.
  13.  Remove that you've become a pro at driving with your knees instead of your hands.
  14. Add that you may not be able to sew a button onto clothing but you can sew up a wound with the best of them.
  15. Add that you have a motorcycle (yea, I know it's a scooter but you're Lebanese and can say it was an honest mistake later).

Other than that, I think you're good.  Scratch that.  You're a-mazing and it will take a super special guy to deserve your Lebanese love.

Love you!  Beeg hug, leetle kees

You pick an image and write your own caption (for any occasion, not just Valentines day).
Here are a few that I made:






Happy Monday ;)

Insta Friday - Yellow Boot Edition

Anyone that knows my 3yo well knows that he doesn't go anywhere without his yellow boots on.  I'm sure that the boots are a size or two too small, the heel is worn out, they are cracked...
I'm not sure what it is about these boots that he loves so much, but it's a cute memory I'm sure we'll hold for years to come ;)

Boots at the park...
boots in the car...

Boots in the cart...
In other news, I pulled next to this car and the driver took me by surprise...
 I found this gem deep in the depths of my picture gallery...  Christmas light necklaces.  My girl makes the funniest expressions...

 Crepes for dinner?  Yes, please.


Today I'm going to get my hair re-red-ified.  What are you doing?

Boy Valentine & Easy (and cheap) Valentine Decor Idea

In my last Valentine post I showed you the girl classroom valentine we're using this year.  As promised, here's the boy version.  Like I mentioned in my last post, I found a TON of great stuff at Michaels in the "Christmas Stocking" clearance bin for a mere .10 apiece!  I was thrilled to find these wooden peg games were included.
Nothing says I love you like a peg game ;)
I tried to come up with a cute line (but I figure first graders don't get the lines anyway), made a text box in ppt, printed them up and voila... Valentine for boys.




And for more Valentine fun...
Here's a little decoration that my 5yo daughter made for our kitchen.

I bought three packs of heart sticks from the dollar store as well as a bag of conversation hearts.  My grandma gave me the jelly jars.  Pute em' all together and you get a cute little festive for the pass through for less than $5 (only 1.20 per jar.  not too shabs.  Yes, I just shortened the word shabby.  It's the "in thing" to shorten words, didn't you know)!

Despite the Gray Sky The Son is There

I went for a run this morning.  It was gray and windy.
As I ran, the clouds broke and the sun shone down on me for just a few seconds.  The warmth and brightness of it took my breath away.
Even though you think you can't see the Son on the gray days, He's there.   If the sun weren't there on the gray days, it would be dark as night, wouldn't it?
Despite the gray skies, praise Him.  The sun rises and sets behind those clouds.  Sometimes, in the midst, He blesses us with peeks of His glory and it takes our breath away.

From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the LORD is to be praised!  Psalm 113:3
The morning sky-January 6, 2012
