People of Walmart

I have to say that I am skeptical of the People of Walmart site. Do those people REALLY exist? Can someone walk out of the house looking like that unintentionally?

My conversation with Chef Ed:

me: "Honey, do you REALLY think that stuff is real on there?"

Ed: " Baby Girl, how many times have you been in Walmart and looked at the people around you. Of course, it's real!"

me: " hmmm...I dunno. I just wonder how legit it could really be."

Ed: "Well, I lived in West Virginia."

me: " When I was in West Virginia, I never saw anyone that looked like that."

Ed: "Just trust me on this. It's real."

How can you not be arrested for something so torturing on the eyes! It's simply insane!

Ya Know What I Like??

Well, I'll save the guess work for ya!

I had such an exciting weekend and there are several things that I'd like to share!

1. First and foremost - My oldest daughter made our church Youth Worship Team as a vocialist!

2. I sold my girls Little Tikes Princess Toy Box! Thank you, Craigslist.

3. I sold my 14 cu. ft. deep freezer! Thank you, again, Craigslist.

4. I made a successful pound cake! (recipe courtesy of my old friend, Eileen Reinard)

5. 4 weeks from today, I'll be leaving for vacation to Isla Holbox, Quintana Roo!

Almost too much for one to handle, eh?

Life Is Good....Really Good

(Please don't judge me by my absence)

Life has been crazy busy - but in a good way. God as truly blessed our lives beyond belief. Business has been great - BETTER THAN EVER and Chef Ed has changed jobs after being led in a different direction. It's all about feet being planted where they NEED to be instead of where you WANT them to be. Amazing, word, huh?

So.....moving back to me. My oldest daughter, Chelsea, is now back at home after taking some time to review her life. We are glad to have her back where she needs to be. She'll be a senior next year and I am ever-so-curious to see what her plans will be. I have my own personal thoughts about it but I'll keep that quiet for now. (I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise!)

We are headed back to our true paradise on February 22nd and we are more excited than ever! It's our one little corner of the world that seems to be so untouched by the hustle and bussle of every day life that serves as a distraction to us sometimes. Our days will consist of laying on the beach, reading and playing Farkle and/or Uno. We will awake when we want to and go to bed when we want to. We'll dine with the locals, watch sunrises and sunsets, drink wine, eat fresh avocado and tomatoes, go barefoot, shell hunt, walk on the beach and hold hands. Besides that, they have the best pork skins that we have ever tasted in our lives! YUMMO!

Life is good....really good!
